High Potency Enzyme Complex.
Digestive enzymes are secreted into the digestive tract to break down food matter into its component nutrients. These can then be absorbed across the gut wall into the bloodstream. If this enzyme system does not work effectively, optimal health cannot be maintained because of the failure to absorb the nutrients needed. Also, undigested food passing into the large intestine will be fermented by the resident bacteria, causing flatulence, bloating and diarrhoea.
As we age, our natural production of enzymes declines and it is recognised that during illness enzyme production can be significantly reduced. Digestizyme® provides a broad spectrum of plant-sourced enzymes, which digest protein, fat and carbohydrate. The advantage of plant-sourced enzymes is that quality control is assured and contamination is significantly reduced compared with animal sources. Natural plant enzymes give high bioavailability and are readily acceptable to the digestive tract. We have chosen enzymes that are largely resistant to degradation caused by the highly acidic conditions in the stomach so that they may reach the small intestine where most digestion takes place.
