Vitalzym Digest is a blend of powerful enzymes specifically formulated to assist the body's normal metabolic processes in improving both digestive function and nutrient absorption.
The digestive enzymes in Vitalzym Digest are a naturally-derived, drug-free alternative to harsh prescription medications, and act as catalysts to boost the breakdown of complex of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. Vitalzym Digest allows for this process and the absorption of nutrients as a healthy source of energy. Vitalzym Digest contains no animal derivatives, artificial flavors or colors, yeast, gluten, or talc and is lactose free.
The body naturally produces sufficient enzymes to maintain optimal health. However, as one ages, the body's production of enzymes decreases which may reduce the efficiency of normal body functions. Vitalzym Digest was designed to support the body in optimizing the availability of these core functions.
Vitalzym Digest incorporates 18 of the most powerful enzymes into one digestive supplement.
Protease, Acid Stable Protease, Peptidase - Proteolytic enzymes are essential in protein digestion. Their primary function is to help us digest different kinds of proteins into smaller chains of amino acids. Without proteases, the intestinal lining would not be able to absorb proteins, which could lead to serious health consequences.
Bromelain and Papain - Bromelain and papain are the proteolytic enzymes that assist in breaking down a wide variety of protein molecules in a range of both acidic and alkaline environments. They are used to minimize or prevent bloating, gas, and other digestive symptoms.
Amylase, Malt Diastase, Glucoamylase, Beta-Glucanase - These enzymes help to take the heavy load off of our digestive processes, reducing many common digestive upsets such as heaviness, lethargy, bloating or gas. Glucoamylase is of particular value to those with gluten sensitivity.†
Invertase, Lactase - These enzymes assist with the breakdown of sugars, such as dairy, into glucose, fructose, and galactose. Glucose is directly absorbed into the bloodstream during digestion to supply the body with energy. Lactase is particularly important for those prone to lactose intolerance.
Pectinase, Cellulase, Hemicellulase, Alpha Galactosidase - These refer to a group of enzymes which, acting together, hydrolyze Pectin, cellulose, and hemicellulose. Hemicellulase and cellulose are crucial for the breaking down of carbohydrates in plant cell walls. Alpha Galactosidase is an enzyme that stops bloating, abdominal distention, and flatulence.†
Phytase, Xylanase - Phytase and Xylanase help break down phytic acid and hemicelluloses. They allow more nutrients to be released from vegetables that have higher fiber content. Phytase breaks down indigestible phytic acid, and as a result, prevents gas and digestive discomfort.†
Lipase - A Lipase is an enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis in which solid fats and oils are taken apart into their components. This means that it can take a triglyceride molecule: the basic fatty unit found in food, and strips off the fatty acids, leaving either none, one or two fatty acids. Undigested lipase increases triglyceride levels and may contribute to high cholesterol.†
