Food intolerances are caused by enzyme deficiencies and can lead to
digestive discomfort in both children, teens, and adults. Supplementing the
diet with specialized enzymes for gluten, lactose, phenol and casein
digestion may assist in lessening discomforts common to intolerance.
Our Kids & Teens Chewable Enzymes help break down the food our
Kids/Teens consume. They make it possible for them to absorb nutrients and
eliminate waste. A digestive enzyme is a great place to start when
incorporating enzymes into your plan of action for your Kid/Teen.

Digestive Enzymes and Neurodevelopmental Disorders:
Children and Teens with neurodevelopmental disorders often experience
higher instances of digestion issues related to food intolerance,
sensitivities, and/or allergies and may benefit from digestive enzymes as
well. Research has shown that children and teens with ADHD are
significantly more prone to bowel problems than other peers, further
underscoring the need to investigate the role that diet and digestive
health may play for kids with learning and behavioral problems. If your
child is lactose intolerant or gluten sensitive or has weak gut junctions
that don't properly control what passes through the lining of the small
intestine (intestinal permeability), GI symptoms can and usually do occur.
When traditional trigger foods like dairy and gluten are not fully digested
in the stomach, food particles may escape through the weakened lining of
the gut and into the bloodstream. When undigested food particles seep into
the bloodstream, which is often referred to as leaky gut syndrome, it
triggers an immune response in the body and brain. Chemicals produced
during this immune response can affect a child’s behavior, focus, and
learning ability. Kids with food sensitivities may also experience vitamin
and mineral deficiencies due to poor absorption, which may further
exacerbate a child's learning or behavioral struggles.
Autism and Phenols:
Phenols are unique properties that can found in high or low amounts in
different foods. High levels of phenols in certain foods seem to affect
children with autism and individuals with sensitive digestive and/or immune
systems. In addition, salicylates and additives can also have a negative
affect the children and in many cases, need to be avoided altogether.
It is important to note that almost all foods have phenols, but in
different amounts. A child with low PST (phenol sulfur transferase) will
have trouble processing foods high in phenols, so you will want to reduce
or avoid eating foods high in phenols, so the child’s body does not
overload when trying to process the phenols it will ingest anyway.
As stated by My Child Will Thrive:
Take enzyme supplementation to support the breakdown of phenols. As all
diets will include some level of phenols, in addition to reducing dietary
phenols, you can give your child enzymes to help in the appropriate
breakdown of the phenols that remain.
