    About 30-40% of people experience digestive problems like bloating, fatigue after eating, and constipation. These are usually caused by combination of factors, such as lifestyle, diet, or hormone health.

    A lesser known reason for these issues is deficient enzyme production in the body. 

    Whenever you eat a meal, your body needs to break down that food into tiny pieces so it can utilize the nutrients inside. Digestive enzymes help process your food into smaller bits so your body can absorb all the nutrients.

    When we get older, our bodies make less and less enzymes, so we aren’t getting all the good stuff out of the food we eat.

    The good news is that you can turn things around by eating a balanced diet and supplementing enzymes to supercharge your gut health once and for all. 

    Why Are Digestive Enzymes So Important?

    • They help your body turn food into energy and nutrients.
    • They make sure all the important jobs in your body get done properly.
    • They keep your digestive system happy and healthy. 

    Three major enzymes target the main components of most typical food groups. Protease breaks down protein, amylase breaks down carbohydrate and starch, and lipase breaks down fat.

    Additional enzymes such as lactase (for lactose in dairy), maltase and sucrase (for food sugars), and cellulase (for cellulose) further contribute to the breakdown of the components in our meals.

    How Can I Use Enzymes To Improve My Digestion And Get Rid Of Bloating?

    The easiest way to use digestive enzymes for gut health is to take a supplement like Digest & Debloat + Apple Cider Vinegar. 

    Smart Pressed Digest and Debloat is 100% vegetarian. Enzymes sourced from vegetarian sources exhibit the highest potency and efficiency in breaking down difficult to digest fats, proteins and carbohydrates. Our enzymes are extracted from whole food sources such as pineapple, papaya, apples and specific strains of fungi and probiotics.

    You can take our digestive enzyme capsules before, during or even after a meal! Since our stomachs take a few hours to digest our food and capsules only take about 15 minutes to dissolve, anytime within this time frame is okay.

    Many people can feel that digestive enzymes can work faster than other supplements. You might notice a difference pretty quickly after starting them. Most will feel the difference within just a few days to a couple of weeks.

    Digest & Debloat: The Complete Digestive Enzyme Formula

    Our proprietary blend contains all the enzymes your body needs to digest food faster and more effectively. The benefits? Reduced bloating, regular bowel movements, improved nutrition from food - just to name a few!

    Here's what we included in our formula:

    • Protease/peptidase: Breaks down proteins into smaller peptides and amino acids.
    • Amylase: Helps digest carbohydrates by breaking them down into simple sugars.
    • Alpha-Galactosidase: Targets complex carbohydrates found in foods like beans and vegetables, reducing gas and bloating.
    • Glucoamylase: Further breaks down starches into glucose.
    • Lactase: Essential for digesting lactose, the sugar found in milk.
    • Invertase: Splits sucrose into glucose and fructose, aiding in the digestion of refined sugars.
    • Lipase: Crucial for the digestion of fats into fatty acids and glycerol.
    • Acid Maltase: Converts maltose to glucose during digestion.
    • Bromelain and Papain: Plant-based enzymes that break down proteins, often used to reduce inflammation and aid digestion.
    • Apple cider vinegar powder: May help with digestive issues by increasing stomach acidity.

    If you often struggle with bloating, constipation, or feeling too full after a meal, the solution might just be a capsule away.

    Incorporating a supplement like Digest & Debloat + Apple Cider Vinegar can replenish enzyme levels and balance digestion so you can feel light on your feet again. Give your digestive system the boost it deserves and you might just feel the difference quicker than you'd think!
