Superzymes, Digestive Enzymes
Digestive enzymes are produced in the salivary glands of the mouth, in the stomach, pancreas, and small intestine. They are responsible for the digestion of nutrients as well as their absorption, transportation, metabolization, and elimination. The body uses three main kinds of enzymes in the digestive process.
Our SuperZymes contains all three.
Amylase enzymes- break down starches or carbohydrates and are found naturally in the mouth saliva as well as the pancreatic and intestinal liquids.
Protease enzymes- are used to break down proteins and are found in the pancreatic and intestinal fluids.
Lipase- aids in fat digestion.
Two other helpful enzymes included in this formula are bromelain and papain. Bromelain comes from pineapple, and papain is from papaya. Bromelain assists in protein digestion. Particularly helpful in breaking down meat fibers, papain is included in some commercially available powdered-meat tenderizers. Both are often used to relieve indigestion.
Betaine hydrochloride is a source of hydrochloric acid, which occurs naturally in the stomach and aids in breaking down fats and proteins. Gastric acids are also important for protecting against harmful bacteria.
Improving overall digestion will let the body absorb nutrients more effectively, thus improving general health.
