Digestive Enzymes Ultra
Vegetarian Formula | Supports Enhanced Digestion | GMO-Free | Gluten Free
The most comprehensive blend of vegetarian digestive enzymes;
Total support for protein, carbohydrate, fat, fiber and dairy digestion
Formulated specifically for digestive issues.
Digestive Enzymes Ultra contains an all-encompassing profile of vegetarian digestive enzymes.
Proteases included in this formula provide optimal activity across a wide pH range. They facilitate the normal breakdown of proteins and di- and tri-peptides.
Lipase promotes lipid breakdown. Lipase digests dietary fat, relieving the gallbladder, liver and the pancreas, which would otherwise need to produce the required enzymes. Protein absorption from fatty foods such as fish or seeds can be improved by incorporating supplemental lipase enzymes in the diet.
Amylase and glucoamylase are included to stimulate polysaccharide breakdown of starch and glycogen. Amylase helps the body break down and assimilate starches as well as carbohydrates. Supplemental amylase may also help reduce stress.
Invertase works to break down sucrose products like refined table sugar into glucose and fructose. The abundance of processed and highly refined foods in the average diet means that we consume a great amount of this type of sugar which can contribute to undue digestion problems. It is theorized that unrecognized sucrose intolerance is a contributing factor in many allergies. Supplemental Invertase enzymes can increase the assimilation and utilization of this sugar.
Lactase support digestion of carbohydrate disaccharides, including the dairy sugar lactose (milk sugar). Lactase deficiency is the most common and well-known form of carbohydrate intolerance. Lactase digests lactose milk sugar into glucose and galactose.
Cellulase helps with fiber breakdown. Cellulase acts to break down cell wall components and phytic acid, promoting nutrient bioavailability of fiber-containing foods. Cellulase hydrolyzes cellulose. According to Enzymatic Hydrolysis of Cellulosic Waste to Glucose (1975), cellulose is the most abundant organic source of food, fuel and chemicals. It is dependent upon its hydrolysis to glucose. Cellulase also eats away unwanted yeast, which when multiplying can lead to Candida.
Beta-glucanase is a very important enzyme because the human body cannot produce on its own. Beta-glucanase increases the overall efficiency of binding excess cholesterol and toxins in the intestines for removal. Helpls to breakdown grains and cereals.
Hemicellulase specifically breaks down cellulose based polysaccharides. Hemicellulase helps break down fiber components in the intestinal tract.This provides faster and more complete breakdown of these polysaccharides into simpler sugars which are then more easily digested by other enzymes in the body or by supplemental enzymes. Used by the body to breakdown vegetables, cerals, fruits.
Phytase breaks down phytate, releasing inorganic phosphorus and myoinositol. Phytate is considered an antinutrient because it chelates minerals and forms insoluble complexes with proteins, decreasing bioavailability of these essential nutrients. Breaks down soy, corn, nuts and seeds.
Alpha-galactosidase promotes the breakdown of certain complex carbohydrates, such as raffinose and stachyose, found in some vegetables, grains and legumes–helping to relieve occasional bloating or gas. Alpha galactosidase hydrolyzes the 1-6 nun-reducing galactocide residues from poly and oligosaccharides in an exo-fashion. These polysaccharides (primarily raffinose, stacchiose, and melibiose) are typically found in legumes and are not digestible in the small intestine. As these sugars are not absorbed, they pass into the large intestine. In the large intestine, these sugars are fermented by native microbial flora and produce gas resulting in bloating, and general discomfort.
Digestive Enzymes Ultra contains a high-strength mixture of vegetarian enzymes supporting enhanced protein, carbohydrate, fat, fiber and dairy digestion and promoting optimal nutrient bioavailability and absorption.
