Additional product information
Ortho Digestzyme 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.
Science of the product
Because of our hectic lifestyles, and the way we often consume food that is overcooked, digestion can often be less than optimal. Poor digestion can produce bloating and gas, cramping, diarrhea or constipation, and even food intolerances. Incomplete digestion of food proteins may also be linked to food allergies, and improper digestion of foodstuffs can cause foods to be fermented in the gut and can lead to the proliferation of “bad” bacteria and yeast at the expense of “good” intestinal bacteria. More complete digestion removes a potential food source for these bad bacteria, allowing for the complete breakdown of food proteins which helps support regular bowel movements. This important enzymatic action originates in four areas: the salivary glands, the stomach, the pancreas and the wall of the small intestine. The unique enzyme blend in Ortho Digestzyme works in harmony to assist each phase of digestion and ensure each food component is effectively broken down for better absorption.
