Dr. Tobias Digest Enzymes help the body break down food into nutrients, which your body needs to absorb for energy, growth, cell repair, etc. 

Enzymatic digestion actually starts in your mouth, where you chew the food and also mix the enzymes in your saliva with your food, and this enzymatic process goes until food has been reached and passed some parts of the small intestine. Enzymatic breakdown of food is critical for an effective nutrient absorption.
