Did you know you can supercharge your keto diet with digestive enzymes?
Before you run out to the store…
Not all digestive enzymes are created equally. In fact, some contain common allergens such as gluten, yeast and artificial colors/flavors.
Others just don't provide enough ingredients to support your body or are formulated without scientific methods.
You'll want to choose a digestive enzymes that have a wide variety of enzymes including bromelain, ox bile, betine hydrochloride USP, pepsin, papain and pacreatin.
Why Take Digestive Enzymes on a Keto Diet?
Enzymes speed up chemical processes in your body by helping it break down macronutrients into their smallest parts. Lipase is the digestive enzyme that brakes down dietary fats and protease breaks down proteins into amino acids.
If you're suffering from reduced energy, your immune system feels taxed, you're under digestive distress or are just plain tired… Digestive enzymes should be your next step.
Fats take more work for your body to break down into energy. As we age, the amount of digestive enzymes we produce naturally is reduced. Fortunately, we can support our digestive process by supplementing with high quality digestive enzyme supplements on the market.
How To Take Digestive Enzymes
Take a serving before each meal. If you find yourself struggling to remember to take your enzymes, set an alarm on your phone to remind yourself. Pack some extra along in your purse, briefcase or backpack for days you forget them or get caught unexpectedly out and about.
What Enzyme Do I Recommend?
There are two high-quality enzymes I recommend to clients. Both of these are gluten free options and very high quality digestive enzymes.
I do not recommend running out to the local supermarket and picking up a bottle of enzymes. Quality varies widely and for many brands, you may as well be flushing your money down the toilet.
I can't tell you how many of my clients tell me “I've tried that before….” and when we investigate the brand…it's a cheap “off the shelf” brand. When we get them on a high quality, scientifically proven supplement… the results are fantastic.
