The Science Behind Protein Absorption
Full spectrum digestive enzymes help catalyse numerous key biochemical reactions in your body. Depending on factors like age, stress, illness and diet, the reserves of our own digestive enzymes get depleted. This leads to issues such as nutrient deficiencies, fatigue, weight gain, and poor skin health: all rooted in poor gut health.
Powerful enzymes called proteases break down protein into smaller absorbable amino acids – which are what your body needs for thousands of bodily functions and cellular processes.
It doesn’t matter if you’re consuming 30 grams of protein or 300 grams of protein — if you don’t have a sufficient supply of enzymes to digest the protein, your body won’t be able to obtain enough of those vital amino acid building blocks.
If you eat meat, fish and eggs, these enzymes are even more crucial because every time you eat cooked food, your body uses more enzymes to digest the meal. The more cooked protein you eat (including most protein powders too), the more your digestive enzymes are depleted. This also means your body is less able to keep up with producing more enzymes, leading to digestive issues such as bloating and diarrhoea.
The truth is: if you’re not using enzyme supplements, your body’s ability to digest and absorb key nutrients is probably not great. You’re lucky if you’re absorbing 40% of the protein from your food!
Masszymes is a 100% plant-based highly concentrated full spectrum digestive enzymes supplement. It contains the best digestive enzymes that are active at a variety of pH levels in order to fully support your breakdown of protein and other nutrients (such as starches, sugars and fats) throughout your digestive tract.
Take 1-3 capsules with each meal, and 1-2 capsules in between meals.
