Source Naturals Essential Enzymes: Essential Enzymes is a Bio-Aligned Formula, designed to ensure that you absorb the full nutritional value of your food. Essential Enzymes supports your body´s systems for digestion of multiple food groups: carbohydrates, protein, fat and fiber. Each capsule contains 500 mg of an all-vegetarian, broad-spectrum blend of digestive enzymes.
Essential Enzymes is designed to bring alignment to the multiple, interconnected systems that influence digestion. The formula includes food grade enzymes that function in a range of different pH (acidity) levels found in the digestive tract. As a result, different enzymes are available to break down food molecules in the various stages of digestion.
Essential Enzymes supports carbohydrate digestion with lactase, to break down milk sugar, and amylase and amyloglucosidase to break down starch. It supports protein digestion with two forms of protease enzymes, acid-stable protease and vegetal analog of pancreatin.
Bile and pancreatic fluid together neutralize stomach acid, which is essential because the intestinal enzymes function only at a pH of 7 to 8. Essential Enzymes supports fat digestion with the enzyme lipase. Fibre found in foods such as whole grains, fruits and vegetables provides bulk to enable the large intestine to work effectively. It also helps regulate the nutrient absorption in the small intestine. The breakdown of certain fibers may add further benefit. Cellulase and hemicellulase break down plant cell walls in fibrous foods, thereby making available nutrients within these cells. Essential Enzymes supports fibre digestion with the enzymes cellulase and hemicellulase.
