Digestive Enzymes help alleviate bloating, fullness, gastrointestinal discomfort, and symptoms associated with occasional indigestion and gas. The plant-based enzymes in Digestive Enzymes work to digest a full range of foods, including protein, fats, carbohydrates, sugar, and fiber. In today’s world, where we chew quickly and eat fast, many find the need for digestive support. These vegetarian enzymes (provided in a vegetarian capsule) are generally better tolerated than animal-source enzymes, and they work over a broader range in the intestinal tract.
Suboptimal production of digestive enzymes — amylase, lactase, lipase, cellulase and neutral protease — can have an impact on digestive function, leading to bloating, flatulence and gastrointestinal discomfort from time to time. Without proper supplies of these digestive enzymes, the body struggles to digest the high-fat or high-starch meals. Taken with meals, Digestive Enzymes can be helpful for those times when we can’t avoid unhealthy food or for when we give in to the temptation to have that rich or sugary dessert.
Each enzyme in this formula has a role to play that ultimately can help the body better absorb nutrients from food and supplements. Amylase, an enzyme that helps the body digest starch, is integral to the breakdown of refined carbohydrates, potatoes, and other starchy foods. Protease breaks down the peptide bonds that join the amino acids in a protein, ensuring the amino acids are readily available to the body. The enzyme lipase splits apart emulsified fats. Lactase digests milk sugar, while cellulase helps break down plant and vegetable matter. These vegetarian digestive enzymes (provided in a vegetarian capsule) are generally better tolerated than animal-source enzymes, and they work over a broader pH range in the intestinal tract.
This product is a broad-spectrum complex providing enzymes, from non-animal sources, which assist in the digestion of fats, proteins and carbohydrates.
