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.
Why Food Enzymes?
Because you like to eat. And you generally eat a variety of different foods that contain proteins, fats and carbs that must be broken down to give your body the nutrients it needs. Food Enzymes provides a more complete digestive solution. It offers a broad range of enzymes that help you break down the whole meal, not just pieces of it. One capsule of Food Enzymes will help you digest protein, carbohydrates and fats. And since we tend to produce fewer enzymes as we age, this takes a load off your digestive system.
How It Works
Enzymes break down food into compounds for absorption into the bloodstream. This combination of enzymes offers more complete digestive support when taken with meals. 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.
After food reaches the small intestine, the enzyme pancreatin further digests protein, carbohydrates and fats in the small intestine. Pancreatin also helps to support the pancreas. Alpha amylase digests starches. Bile salt makes fats soluble, preparing them for further digestion by lipase. The enzymes bromelain and papain aid in the digestion of proteins. One capsule will help you digest a minimum of 30 grams of protein, 30 grams of carbohydrates and 20 grams of fats.
Take 1–2 capsules with a meal three times daily.
