Digestive enzymes: Digestizyme®
High potency digestive enzymatic complex
High potency digestive enzyme complex
Digestizyme® provides a broad spectrum of plant-sourced enzymes, which digest protein, fat and carbohydrate and is one of the most popular products of its type in the UK.
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. In these situations a supplement providing suitable digestive enzymes may make a useful contribution to the smooth working of the digestion process.
