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 can make a useful contribution to the smooth working of the digestion process.
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 the potency can be guaranteed Digestizyme® is one of the UK’s strongest enzyme formulas and it can only be compared to other manufacturer’s products if they quote the units of activity of each enzyme not just the weight.
We have chosen enzymes that are largely resistant to degradation caused by the highly acidic conditions in the stomach so that they will still be active when they reach the small intestine where most digestion takes place.
