The Science Behind Enzymes

Written by Caroline Bonds

Nutrient Absorption

In the realm of healthcare, the partnership between enzymes and vitamins plays a crucial role in ensuring effective nutrient absorption in the body. Solutions Rx recognizes the importance of enzymes in nutrient absorption, leading to the incorporation of our proprietary enzyme blend. This blend gives each serving a specific purpose in optimizing the bioavailability of vitamins and nutrients. Now, let’s unveil the science behind enzymes and nutrient absorption.

Nutrient AbsorptionEnzymes are specialized proteins that serve as catalysts, speeding up chemical reactions without being consumed in the process. They operate by lowering the activation energy required for reactions, making it easier for substrates to transform into products. Without enzymatic assistance, these reactions would proceed sluggishly, impacting the cell’s ability to perform crucial functions.

Why supplement enzymes?

Everything with a metabolism contains enzymes; therefore, most active enzymes come from plants and animals that we eat.

The problem with getting adequate amounts of enzymes is that most of the plants and animals that we eat have been frozen and/or cooked. This is an issue because enzymes are sensitive to temperature. At low temperatures, enzymes can become inactive, while high temperatures tend to denature the enzymes and destroy their activity altogether.

Because of this, we offer supplemental enzymes. Even if you’re getting the most optimal diet, you might still need an enzyme supplement.

“You’re not what you eat, but what you absorb.”

~ Jeffrey Blanchard, Ph.D.

The FDA estimates that half of all American adults take supplements and perhaps some of that reason is because vitamins and minerals are being depleted from our diet, affecting our body’s enzymes and by association, our metabolism and vitamin and nutrient absorption.

This image displays the metabolic pathways that are happening in your body at any given moment, even right now. Could you imagine how much time it would take this long, complicated metabolic process without the help of enzymes?
If the gut isn’t digesting your food correctly, it probably isn’t absorbing your vitamins and supplements either. That is why supplement enzymes play such a huge role in Solutions Rx products. It is a fool-proof plan to ensure proper absorption of nutrients.
