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.
Enzymes break down food into smaller compounds that can be absorbed into the bloodstream. 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. The enzymes bromelain and papain aid in the digestion of proteins. After food reaches the small intestine, pancreatin, which also supports the pancreas, further digests protein, carbohydrates and fats. Alpha amylase digests starches. Bile salts make fats soluble, preparing them for further digestion by lipase.
