For something we do every day, most people don’t think too hard about how digestion works. Food goes in one end and out the other. It all works out, right? Sometimes it does! Let’s talk about the times it does not.
Enzymes are naturally occurring substances in our bodies and in our food. It’s a type of protein that creates a necessary chemical reaction. Different enzymes perform different functions to support life. Here at Jetson, we’re particularly interested in digestive enzymes.

I always say that these are the three things that could change your life: drink more water, get enough fiber and take Jetson. I was really intentional about focusing on the basics. I was changing my diet, I was moving more, I was focusing on my mental health, and Jetson supported me through all of that. It took my gut issues off the table.
Here’s the thing: keeping your gut microbiome balanced takes consistent effort. Achieving optimal gut health doesn’t come from 30 days of probiotic supplements and kombucha. Just like us, our gut microbiome is continually evolving – which means it needs to be continually exposed to beneficial bacteria (so the bad bacteria never becomes too powerful).
Efficient digestion is a cornerstone of our well-being, impacting our mood and sleep, and our ability go about our daily lives. When it’s not working, we’re miserable. Fortunately, keeping our digestion in good health doesn’t require medical interventions or drastic measures: eating a balanced diet full of gut-friendly food, and adopting healthy lifestyle habits, is usually all it takes.
We get it: Whether you’re dealing with constipation, diarrhea, constant stomachaches, or other sticky gut situations, it can feel like there’s no end in sight. After all, digestion is a routine thing that should just happen, right?
If you didn’t know this already, probiotics are our thing. At Jetson, we believe that gut health is key to overall health. We’re so obsessed that we’ve developed specific formulations for different health needs, including a seasonally rotating probiotic for better gut diversity.
Today’s diets can be full of “empty calories” —foods that lack fiber, complex carbs, protein and healthy fats. These proteins, vitamins and minerals are the key factors in production of those mood-driving neurotransmitters.
Weight loss isn’t easy, but it can be done in a healthy, sustainable way with the help of a dietician, your doctor, and the right education about the proper way to eat.
