This product is a comprehensive digestive enzyme formula that can assist in the breakdown of a wide range of proteins, peptides, fats, complex carbohydrates, sugars, and fibers. Provided in vegetarian capsules, This product can be used by children or adults to assist more complete and proper digestion of food for routine daily use or as needed.
Facts and Functions
Enzymes play a crucial role in digestion, as they break down food components into molecules that can be readily absorbed and assimilated by the body. Cooking and heat processing destroy raw food enzymes, placing the full burden of digestion on the pancreas and other digestive organs. The body may produce fewer enzymes in certain health conditions. Supplemental enzymes can assist in the breakdown of food, support normal gastrointestinal function, and enhance the absorption of vitamins and minerals by reducing food to its more basic elements.
–Active enzymes: This product contains enzymes that are active across a very broad pH range, making them effective throughout the entire GI tract.
-A comprehensive blend of active enzymes: The broad-spectrum combination of enzymes in This product work together to support the breakdown, absorption, and utilization of macronutrients from a wide spectrum of foods, including proteins and protein peptides, carbohydrates, sugars, lipids/fats, and vegetable fibers. Special proteases (protein-specific enzymes) are included that have dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP-IV) activity to support optimal cleaving of casein and gluten and their exorphin peptides (casomorphin and gluteomorphin). Serratia peptidase, a unique enzyme that helps protect sensitive GI tissues from occasional irritation, and lysozyme, an enzyme that helps break down bacterial and yeast cell walls, are also included
