Digestive enzymes are proteins that are naturally produced by the pancreas, stomach, small intestine, and salivary glands which help facilitate digestion. These enzymes are necessary to break down food into smaller components in order to be absorbed by the body. Different enzymes are needed to break down different types of food and may decrease with age. If you've had your gallbladder removed, taking digestive enzymes in supplement form may aid in restoring and maintaining your digestive health. For specific questions, please discuss this information with your Healthcare Practitioner.
