I was asked a question by a patient today on whether or not I think they should take Digestive Enzymes. Firstly let me explain what these enzymes do. The use of digestive enzymes will not only aid the breakdown and absorption of nutrients from foods but may also aid in the resolution of inflammation in the body.
Now if you have Crohn’s Disease that sounds like a pretty good thing to be taking right?
Yes I hear you all yell! Well, I agree. It sure does sound like a good idea.
In terms of what kind I think you should choose I suggest a digestive enzyme that is plant-based and covers a range of different enzymes. Eating foods like paw paw and pineapple will also aid digestion.
Digestive enzymes help with the following
• Digestive insufficiency
• Fat malabsorption
• Food allergies and intolerances
So I recommend taking 1-3 digestive enzymes at each meal as this will help your body break down food and enhance digestion. They are best taken in the first few mouthfuls of your meal.
If you have any further questions on Digestive Enzymes or in fact any questions remember you can email me on firstname.lastname@example.org or remember to check out my Facebook Page at My Crohn's Doctor.
