ENZYMES IN ACTION: CLOCKING YOUR ENZYMES TO UNLOCK THE SECRETS OF COMBINING

Protein foods are the hardest to digest because they require triple enzymatic action—hydrochloric acid, then pepsin, and then the two in combination; because of this they spend the most time in your stomach. Most proteins require twelve full steps before they are thoroughly digested.

Dairy products are by far the toughest protein foods to digest. Their high-fat and low-moisture content suppresses the very enzyme they need for digestion, hydrochloric acid, and a great struggle takes place in your stomach. We've all heard that drinking milk coats your stomach. True. But why would you want to coat your stomach when you want to digest something? By coating your stomach you're suppressing the very enzymes you need for digestion.
