How Can Enzymes Benefit Fibromyalgia Sufferers?
Enzyme supplements and a good diet can help Fibromyalgia patients maintain energy for cell growth and as well as strengthen their immune system. People with fibromyalgia often display irregular nervous systems and a thickening of the myofascia tissue.
Myofascia tissue is a thin tissue that surrounds the muscles. When this tissue thickens, it reduces elasticity and slows the transmission of signals the brain sends to body. As a result, fibromyalgia patients experience pain, tiredness, and digestive problems.
Research shows that many patients have difficulties breaking down carbohydrates because they don’t have amylase—the natural enzyme produced by our body. Amylase enzymes are needed to break down carbohydrates. Similarly, many patients also show a lipase deficiency.
Lipase enzymes work to break down fats. Therefore, without the proper enzymes needed to break down carbohydrates and fats and proteins, a person with fibromyalgia may compromise their immune system and digestive system.

People with fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndromes that have started a digestive enzyme regime often show and improvement in their symptoms. This is because the regimen provides enzymes that the body lacks, and promotes cell nutrition by nourishing the nervous system and digestive system.
