The aging process and certain health issues cause a reduction in the bodys enzyme production. One effect of this reduction is a bloated feeling soon after eating a large meal. Enzymes are essential to the bodys absorption and full use of food. The primary digestive enzymes are protease (to digest protein), amylase (to digest carbohydrate), and lipase (to digest fat). These enzymes function as a biological catalyst to help break down food. Raw foods also provide enzymes that naturally break down food for proper absorption. The capacity of the living organism to make enzymes diminishes with age.
