Proteolytic enzymes (proteases) help you digest the proteins in food. Although your body produces these enzymes in the pancreas, certain foods also contain proteolytic enzymes. Papaya and pineapple are two of the richest plant sources, as attested by their traditional use as natural "tenderizers" for meat. Papain and /tnp/pg000406 doc 146651 bromel...

6.Medium-Chain Triglycerides
Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are fats with an unusual chemical structure that allows the body to digest them easily. Most fats are broken down in the intestine and remade into a special form that can be transported in the blood. But MCTs are absorbed intact and taken to the liver, where they are used directly for energy. In this sense, they ar...

8.Beano
Many foods can cause gassiness, including beans (legumes), broccoli, cabbage, onions, and whole grains. This occurs because these foods contain complex carbohydrates that are not entirely broken down in the digestive tract, and instead serve as food for intestinal bacteria. These bacteria produce hydrogen and carbon dioxide gas as they digest the...

9.Lactose Intolerance
Sugar comes in many forms. One type of sugar, lactose, occurs primarily in milk. Nature gives young children the ability to digest lactose, because they need to do so when they nurse. However, as people grow up, they often lose the lactose-digesting enzyme, known as lactase . The result is a condition called lactose intolerance. Symptoms include in...

10.Phaseolus vulgaris
Supplements made from white kidney beans ( Phaseolus vulgaris ) are sold as starch blockers, supplements said to interfere with the digestion of carbohydrates and thereby promote weight loss. Technically, starch blockers are amylase inhibitors . Amylase is one of the main enzymes the body uses to digest starch. In theory, when amylase is blocked,...
