I am not implying anything. Just that there may be additives that may influence digestion in some way or another.
They might break down food. But that’s just one possibility. They might also influence the stomach’s acidity. Or they might influence the bile, somewhat later in the digestion process. They might alter some digestion products or half-products. They might influence the gut bacteria.
I’m sure there are many more possibilities that I’m overlooking now.
My statement really boils down to the remark that you are ingesting more than just enzymes when you “take enzymes”. This yet unknown “more” stuff might well have an influence on the digestive process.
Can you provide examples of these possible additives with evidence of their function and influence on digestion in the absence of enzyme supplementation?
