Natural digestive enzymes are found in the saliva, the stomach and the small intestine. Their purpose is to break down the food we eat into molecules that can be absorbed. There are three basic types of natural digestive enzymes. Proteases are essential to breaking up proteins in the foods we eat. Lipases are responsible for breaking up fats. Amylases are used to break up carbohydrates. All of them are equally important to a balanced diet.
