Digestive Essentials is a full-spectrum enzyme strategically designed to support each phase of digestion. In the gastric phase, betaine HCl and pepsin prime the stomach, ensuring proper pH to initiate the first phase of digestion. This sets up the second stage of digestion, the enteric phase, in which high-concentration pancreatin 8x, which includes protease, amylase, lipase and trypsin, is released and activated in the small intestine to ensure proper protein breakdown and fat absorption. This unique blend of high-powered enzymes works in synergy to enhance digestion and ensure maximum nutrient intake.
Pancreatin, bromelain, papain and ox bile extract support enteric phase digestion in the small intestine for further digestion of proteins and fats. Pancreatin extract is composed of three different enzymes: amylase, lipase and protease. All help to digest starch, protein and fat and enhance enzyme activity to support digestion. Eighty percent of pancreatic enzymes by weight are proteases. Lipase works with ox bile extract to emulsify and digest fats. Research has shown that papain, a protease derived from papaya, can help digest wheat gluten in the small intestine and render it harmless in those who are gluten sensitive. Bromelain, an enzyme extracted from pineapple plants, aids in the digestion of protein and has been shown to help maintain normal levels of inflammation.
