In order to obtain the nutritional benefits of food, we must first be able to digest it into the basic building blocks of our cells. Enzymes naturally residing throughout the digestive tract aid this process by breaking down the macromolecules that compose our food as it passes through. Digestive enzymes in the mouth, stomach, and small intestine all play important roles in the digestion of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins.
Healthy digestion results in the complete breakdown of these food macromolecules into their component parts, whereby proteins are dissociated into amino acids, carbohydrates into simple sugars, and fats into fatty acids. Only as small molecules can our food pass through the gut wall and into the bloodstream to nourish our bodies.
In formulating this product, we have chosen a select group of high-quality digestive enzymes whose actions mimic those of enzymes normally present in the human digestive system.* This formula helps fill functional gaps that may be present, while minimizing molecular activities that are not undertaken naturally by human digestive enzymes.
