Nutraceutical

Enzymes function as catalysts that moderate metabolic processes necessary to sustain life. Driven by demand for digestive health products, growth of enzyme-based dietary supplements remains steady today, in line with the larger nutraceuticals market. “People are looking at enzymes and probiotics as those natural alternatives to having to go to the doctor. Enzyme dietary supplements are gaining recognition among consumers for their role in supporting digestive health as well as bioavailability of nutrients from foods, he noted. “Bioavailability is a key consumer concern, according to Sloan Trends, and the ability to break down food into its basic and useful components is of critical concern for sports performance and for consumers interested in functional nutrition for growth, development and supporting healthy aging.” Ultimately, digestive health remains the most popular category for enzyme supplements.

The role of digestive enzymes is to break down food-derived fats, carbohydrates and proteins into smaller substances that our bodies can use. “Although the body produces its own digestive enzymes, it may not be enough to completely break down cooked or processed foods. During cooking and processing, the natural enzymes present in raw foods are destroyed. Fortunately, supplements can provide additional enzymes and help to optimize the digestion process. The complete release and absorption of food nutrients can result in fewer digestive problems.” Nutritional enzymes have risen to prominence during the past several years, buoyed by consumers who are increasingly infatuated with their digestive health. In addition, enzymes used for other conditions, such as joint health and gluten intolerance, are also starting to become more popular as consumers learn more about the other supporting roles they play in human nutrition.
