This comprehensive digestive enzyme formula can assist in the breakdown of a wide range of proteins, peptides, fats, complex carbohydrates, sugars, and fibers. These naturally-flavored chewable tablets can be used by children or adults to assist more complete and proper digestion of food as needed.
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. Fewer enzymes may be excreted in certain health conditions. Supplemental enzymes can assist in the breakdown of food and enhance the absorption of vitamins and minerals by reducing food to its essential elements.
This enzyme supplement contains:
• Plant-derived enzymes: This vegetarian formula 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 maximize the breakdown, absorption, and utilization of macronutrients from a wide spectrum of foods, including proteins and protein peptides, carbohydrates, disaccharides, and 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 irritation, is also included.
• Hypoallergenic ingredients: This product contains highly purified, filtered enzymes to meet needs of foodsensitive patients. It is free of porcine or other animal-derived enzymes and avoids fruit-derived enzymes (bromelain, papain, kiwi) for maximum tolerance.
This product is free of the following common allergens: milk/casein, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat/gluten, yeast, and soybeans.
Contains no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.
This product can be used by children or adults, as a general digestive aid, or when gastrointestinal function has been compromised by maldigestion, malabsorption, dysbiosis, or intestinal inflammation. This high-potency, multi-enzyme formulation offers an unusually complete range of plant/microbial-based enzymes that work in concert to help maintain normal enzyme levels that support the body’s digestive capabilities and assist intestinal repair mechanisms.
Suggested Use: Chew 2 tablets daily at the beginning of each meal. This product was made in a GMP and ISO 9001:2008 registered facility.
