Do Digestive Enzymes
Help in Muscle Building?

If you train with weights on a regular basis then you will be very aware of the difference between anabolic and catabolic. You're building your strength and increasing the size of a muscle when you are anabolic, conversely when you over-train or you're sick you'll lose strength and muscle size you'll be catabolic. Anabolic means protein synthesis is happening i.e. muscle growth. It means the nitrogen taken from amino acids is then rearranged linearly to form structured proteins. The more efficient this structural rearrangement the faster you will be able to build muscle. Digestive enzymes are vital for this process to happen. These are the important proteins that act as a catalyst for countless chemical reactions that happen in your body all day. Including those that are directly associated with energy production, tissue repair, and food digestion. Your digestive enzymes break the food down when it hits the stomach into nutrients that allow them to get absorbed into your bloodstream. Without sufficient digestive enzymes to process the expensive protein that you're eating you won't get the advantages of all the protein you think you're eating. If you are training hard and eat 1.2 grams of protein for each pound of your bodyweight, to prevent catabolism from happening, then you should know that if you don't have enough digestive enzymes readily available to digest this well planned 1.2 gram/lbs body-weight you fooling yourself. It's a protein trap that many bodybuilders fall into thinking that if 1.2 grams is good then 1.5 grams must better. They invest in expensive protein powders and think they are getting all the protein they need to repair from their brutal workouts. The problem is when you run out of digestive enzymes needed to process all this protein coming down, there just aren't enough of them available. A study done on the effectiveness of digestive enzymes showed that the volunteers all experienced a 100% increase in their protein synthesis rate, a 250% increase in BCAA availability and an overall increased rate of nitrogen retention to be 33%. In other words faster muscle repair. It should be noted that traditional hard-gainers usually genetically produce an abundance of the catabolic stress hormone called Cortisol. It is a catabolic hormone because it will inhibit or drastically reduce protein synthesis. It is strongly advised that these people take digestive enzyme supplements.
