The global digestive enzyme industry is estimated to be worth $1.2 billion by the year 2026. John Davidson, Director of Education and Innovation, Deerland Probiotics & Enzymes, joined host Daniel Litwin to discuss the role supplemental enzymes play in assisting proper digestion.
“The enzyme supplement category is very specialized,” Davidson said.
Davidson's 37 years of expertise and knowledge of the changes in technology in supplemental enzyme development helps him in his efforts to create better and more effective products.
As consumers become more focused on gut health, has Davidson seen an uptick in the desire for enzyme supplements?
“We’re seeing a lot of interest in combinations of digestive enzyme supplements with probiotics and even with prebiotics," he said. "Each one is addressing a different phase or aspect of the digestive process, and they can be very complimentary and synergistic with one another.”
One of the many positives of taking enzyme supplements, Davidson said, is that, “If a person experiences issues with digestion of certain food types, taking the proper enzyme supplement can provide that person with relief right away, not weeks or months.”
