Global Digestive Enzyme Supplements Market: Snapshot

A large number of living organisms are known to use digestive enzymes to break down ingested macromolecules down to their basic building blocks, in order to assimilate them for sustenance and growth. Their core functions are to digest food and to maintain cellular survival from within cellular lysosomes. In the human body, digestive enzymes are secreted by the mouth’s salivary glands, the stomach cellular lining, the small intestine, and the pancreas. It is, however, not uncommon for people to suffer from issues created by the malabsorption of nutrients due to the improper breakdown of food, primarily caused by the lack or in special cases the absence of digestive enzymes.

In such cases, doctors often prescribe the use of supplements that add digestive enzymes into the stomach. Digestive enzymes modelled after the pancreatic enzymes are commercially available combinations of protease, lipase, and amylase. Some of the cases where digestive enzyme supplements are essential include instances of patients that suffer from pancreatic cancer, pancreatitis, cystic fibrosis, or when their pancreas is removed by surgery. The WHO lists digestive enzyme medications in their list of essential medicines and have rated some of the pancreatic enzyme supplements as safe and effective ways of dealing with certain health issues.
