Can Digestive Enzyme Supplements Help Allergies and Food Intolerances?

Allergies and food intolerances are horrible conditions that affect up to 80% of the population, often while being written off as mystery symptoms or misdiagnosed.

Many people believe that their allergies and intolerances are just something they have to live with – an unfortunate, but permanent, set of health symptoms that they are forced to put up with.

However, that isn’t the case.

Both allergies and intolerances can be assisted by the use of digestive enzyme supplements.

Allergies and intolerances can be severe in people whose bodies are not producing enough digestive enzymes. This problem leads to high amounts of undigested food molecules reaching the gut wall.

Studies show that as high as 90% of people with sensitivities to man made chemicals have inadequate amounts of digestive enzymes.

How exactly this inadequacy interferes with allergies and intolerances is not exactly clear, but there is definitely a link. It may be due to the presence of undigested food increasing the chances of a localised reaction, or the undigested food itself may simply feed the bacteria in the gut, allowing it to multiply and cause problems.

Whatever the exact link, supplementing a digestive enzyme is often a very successful way of minimising allergy and intolerance symptoms.

When choosing an enzyme product, however, you need to be careful – not all brands are good-quality.

Your chosen brand must provide amylase, lipase and protease or it will not break down all food types. It should be made from natural ingredients and have a wide range of pH activity (pH 1.0 to pH 8.0 is ideal), as well as being designed to assist with gluten digestion especially.

I have spent countless hours researching health supplements so you don’t have to.
