Enzymes are proteins which catalyse reactions with a high degree of specificity and efficiency and they are present in all living organisms. Digestive enzymes are secreted into the digestive tract to break down food matter into its component nutrients, which can be absorbed across the gut wall. If this enzyme system does not work effectively, optimal health cannot be maintained because of the failure to absorb the nutrients needed. This product provides broad spectrum (pancreatic profile), vegetable sourced enzymes which digest protein, fat and carbohydrate. Digestizyme® may be chosen by: - the elderly - those recovering from an illness - smokers and alcohol consumers. - those suffering with IBS or similar bowel related disorders.
