What’s a digestive enzyme?

What’s a digestive enzyme?

We’ve spent so much time talking about our clinically formulated digestive enzyme, Sorbeo Complete, that we’ve almost forgotten to talk about the value of digestive enzymes in general.
So let’s get on with it! =)

Enzymes fall into a few categories, including food enzymes (found in raw food), metabolic enzymes (mostly found in the pancreas) and digestive enzymes (mostly found in the gut). Enzymes are technically proteins, and they help the body carry out the chemical reactions necessary to break down and ultimately digest food.

List of digestive enzymes
Our bodies are complex machines, and when it comes to digestive enzymes, there are a bunch that our bodies need in order to break down foods and absorb their nutrients. A list of digestive enzymes is provided below:
  • Acid Proteases
  • Amylase
  • Amyloglucosidase
  • Bromelain
  • Cellulase
  • Invertase
  • Lactase
  • Lipase
  • Maltase
  • Maltodextrin
  • Papain
  • Proteases
So why do people need digestive enzymes?
To be honest, the medical community is divided on whether digestive enzymes are necessary in supplement form. Some healthcare professionals believe that people can get all the digestive enzymes they need from proper diet and from their own bodily functions. Other healthcare professionals believe that some people have damaged metabolic functions and / or that their bodies need help.
Clearly, we’re in the business of selling a digestive enzyme, so you can guess which side of the debate we fall on, but we started Sorbeo and launched Sorbeo Complete in order to help people make informed decisions and lead healthier lives—that’s why we want to be honest about the issues above.
When it comes to Sorbeo Complete, we developed our formulary with proper digestive health in mind. A description of Sorbeo’s ingredients can be found here.
