Lipase, lipase, lipase.
Just think ALL THINGS FAT. If it has to do with digesting fat, it has to do with lipase. Your body’s ability to use fat soluble vitamins like D, A, and E, is also accomplished by lipase. It is produced in the spleen, one of the least appreciated organs.
Healthy bodies can produce enough lipase. A deficiency in will rear its ugly head in more ways than one.
There may be tendencies toward:
High cholesterol, high blood pressure, difficulty losing weight, varicose veins, and diabetes. Since cell walls are made of lipids, a deficiency will cause issues with cell permeability. This sets up communication and nutrition issues within the cell and with other cells.
Supporting the spleen is the ultimate goal, so the body runs as it should. In the meantime, to support digestion of fats, one can supplement with enzymes. These have worked well for me and are a great choice if you are looking to support healthy digestion. Miracles can happen when you give your body what it needs to heal itself!
This is part of a healthy lifestyle. Supplements in themselves will not change your life, but as part of an overall lifestyle change, they can be invaluable. Let me help you plan what you need for your health goals!
