The magic behind digestion: enzymes and their role – Nutriendo (Spanish Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics) (in Spanish)
“The role of macro and micronutrients in the digestive process is as important as the function of these substances. Adriana Duelo, dietitian-nutritionist and member of the Spanish Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, emphasizes that “thanks to digestive enzymes we can absorb nutrients from food or eliminate molecules that we do not need. Its main function is to break down large substances that we ingest through our diet into small ones so that we can take advantage of them.”
