WHAT ARE THEY?
Food intolerances are adverse reactions to food and depend on the body's difficulty in metabolizing a given food or one of its components . More and more people currently suffer from food intolerances.
There are different types of food intolerances. The enzymatic ones, for example, are determined by the inability, due to congenital defects, to metabolize some substances introduced into the body.
It must be taken into account that food intolerances can be both genetic and acquired. This implies that they can appear at any time in life. Whether it is suddenly or gradually this varies from the person affected.
The foods most at risk that are generally subject to intolerance are: milk, eggs, peanuts, wheat, soy, hazelnuts, cereals and fruit.
Among all, the most frequent enzymatic intolerance is that of lactose, a disaccharide sugar contained in milk and all its derivatives, but often present in traces as a by-product of processing even in many packaged foods. People with lactose intolerance have a deficiency in the digestive enzyme called lactase. It is responsible for breaking down lactose into glucose and galactose, which is needed to be properly absorbed and then used by our body.
Another very common intolerance, although attributable to another cause, is that of gluten, defined as celiac disease: those who suffer from it complain of various types and entities, generally on the skin or gastrointestinal level, following the intake of foods containing this molecule. .
Symptoms can vary from person to person. The following are the most frequent:
|slow digestion||abdominal bloating|
The symptoms are many and of different nature that at times can bring out a malaise that is difficult to identify. It is important to know that intolerances do not favor weight gain or obesity.
INTOLERANCES AND ALLERGIES ARE THE SAME THING:
The answer is no.
Unfortunately it is not possible to prevent food intolerances but there are remedies to find some relief.
- Since the disorders caused by intolerances are not completely eliminated in the intestine with an ad hoc diet, it may be useful to take specific products designed for those suffering from intolerances or who want to improve the functionality of the liver and digestive system which may be based on Artichoke, Milk Thistle, Grapefruit Seed Extract, Turmeric, Gotu Kola and digestive enzyme blends. All these ingredients are contained within the Depur Complex.
- Digestive enzymes are also contained in the Zenzi-Mix Digestion capsules, in addition to the enzymes, the formulation is enriched with plant extracts that promote normal digestion.
