Protein Deficiency

standard process supplementsLets talk digestive enzymes. So we need protein to make digestive enzymes but then we can’t break down the protein we eat unless we have enough digestive enzymes?!?! When we find ourselves in a protein deficiency, this cycle can be difficult to break. Many of the people that we see need to supplement protein in a predigested form for the body to heal.

Enzymes, speed up the break down of our food but there are also molecules that bind to enzymes that slow this process down.  They are foods like egg whites, peanuts, beans, so if your body is struggling with making enough digestive enzymes, these foods are going to further add to issue. We see this often in vegetarians or vegans that struggle getting enough protein in their diet and when they do eat protein its often in beans.  Then there is the issue of taking to many digestive enzymes when they aren’t needed.  This will cause things like carbohydrates to break down too quickly and increase blood sugar.  For anyone struggling with diabetes, this can be counter productive.  If an enzyme is needed, finding the right one for you and at the right amount is vital.  Whats right for you?   We can help you figure that out!
