This high potency enzyme supplement is designed to optimize the function of the digestive system in breaking down fat, carbohydrate, and protein. Digestive enzymes assist the body in breaking down large food particles into smaller particles that can be efficiently absorbed by the intestinal tract. Improper digestion can lead to abdominal discomfort such as bloating, feeling of fullness and constipation as well as nutrient malabsorption and deficiency.
The enzymes contained in this formulation are provided by pancreatin, a potent extract from porcine pancreas that contains enzymes specific for digestion of fat, protein, and starch. The USP pancreatin material contained in this product provides the following enzyme activity:
- Lipase (Fat-specific)9,000 USP helps break down dietary fats and aids in the absorption of fat soluble vitamins (A, D, E & K) important for energy and proper functioning of many different organs.
- Protease (Protein-specific)60,000 USP helps break down large proteins into smaller ones or into their component amino acids which can then be directly absorbed into the intestinal tract and used for tissue repair and cell growth.
- Amylase (Starch-specific)60,000 USP helps break down starches from carbohydrates into glucose, the main source of energy for the brain, as well as every cell within the body.
This product may be useful for individuals who wish to enhance and maintain efficient digestive function by supplementing with lipase, protease and amylase.
