Sometimes you overeat and you need a little digestive help, or you simply don’t get enough enzymes from your diet. Enzymes break down food, relieve occasional indigestion and allow more nutrients to be absorbed. Food Enzymes helps break down proteins, carbs and fats for improved digestion.
- Supplements the body’s production of important enzymes
- Provides a blend of enzymes to digest proteins, carbohydrates and fats
- Provides betaine hydrochloride and bile salts to help digest proteins and fats
- Helps relieve occasional indigestion
Enzymes break down food into smaller compounds that can be absorbed into the bloodstream. This formula includes pepsin, which is used for pre-digesting proteins in the stomach. Betaine HCl helps create an acidic environment to facilitate the activity of pepsin. The enzymes bromelain and papain aid in the digestion of proteins. After food reaches the small intestine, pancreatin, which also supports the pancreas, further digests protein, carbohydrates and fats. Alpha amylase digests starches. Bile salts make fats soluble, preparing them for further digestion by lipase.
