Nutrisentials Digestive Enzymes 90 Tablets
Jamieson Vitamins Nutrisentials Digestive Enzymes (90 caplets) is a plant-sourced nutrient complex that supports digestive health by helping restore the body's natural enzyme levels. Factors such as stress, increasing age, antibiotic use, and a diet high in refined foods can all lead to reduced enzyme levels.
Benefits of Nutrisentials Digestive Enzymes include the following:
- helps the body digest protein, fat, carbohydrates, dairy and fibre
- helps the body absorb nutrients
- Calcium gluconate helps neutralize excess stomach acid
- a soothing blend of peppermint leaf, chamomile and fennel calm digestive upset and digestive symptoms (e.g. gas, heartburn and symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome or IBS)
The pancreas is the body's main digestive organ. Enzymes produced by the pancreas travel to the small intestine where they help the body break down carbohydrates, proteins and fats. When the pancreas does not make or secrete enough digestive enzymes into the digestive tract, certain digestive problems can arise.
The following plant-derived compounds found in Nutrisentials Digestive Enzymes contain enzymes that help the body digest and absorb various substances:
- Papain helps the body break down proteins.
- Bromelain initiates anti-inflammatory and pain killing actions in the body
- Lipase helps the body absorb fat.
- Amylase helps the body digest carbohydrates.
- Lactase helps the body digest lactose.
- Cellulase helps the body digest plant fibre.
