Digestive Enzymes (120 tablets)
- Protease is the enzyme that digests protein; amylase digests carbohydrates and lipase digests lipids (fats).
- Pancreatin is necessary for protein, lipid and carbohydrate digestion.
- Bromelain, pepsin, and betaine HCl all help break down protein.
- Film coated tablets ensures effectiveness.
How It Works:
Digestive enzymes are secreted along the gastrointestinal tract and break down foods, enabling the nutrients to be absorbed into the bloodstream for use in various bodily functions. Enzymes are extremely sensitive to heat and are easily destroyed by cooking in temperatures above 47C (117F). Age and various digestive system problems can reduce the production of digestive enzymes and impair the digestive system’s ability to adequately digest food.
