Diamond Nutritionals’ Digestive Enzyme Support is formulated to help the body break down fats, proteins, and carbohydrates.
Many lead busy lives and find themselves frequently eating fast foods which contain high amounts of fat, sugar, and carbohydrates. The end result of poor eating can often times lead to stress on the digestive system, indigestion and poor nutrient absorption.
Another common cause of poor digestion is lack of proper digestive enzyme production, as well as low levels of hydrochloric acid. Diamond Nutritionals’ Digestive Enzyme Formula addresses these issues.
The digestion process is complex and involves a host of enzymes, organs, and gastric juices that breakdown ingested proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. There are many factors that can effect how our bodies digest certain foods, including insufficiency of acid in the stomach, and decreased production of digestive enzymes. Additional supplementary support may be needed to meet some of the requirements needed for proper digestion. Supplementation with digestive aids can provide the needed digestive enzymes and pH balancing needed for proper digestion.
There are a few different classes of enzymes. Enzymes that are responsible for breaking down proteins are called proteases, those responsible for breaking down starches are amylases, and lastly enzymes responsible for breaking down fats are called lipases. Digestive Enzyme Formula contains pancreatin, an enzyme derived from porcine pancreas and has amylase, protease, and lipase activity. Pepsin, bromelain, and papain also have protease properties.
Betaine HCL and pepsin are also included to help bring the stomach to a more desirable acidic pH level.
It is important to note that enzymes are measured in different units than most dietary supplement ingredients. Each enzyme has a unique unit of measurement including USP, GDU, and TU to name just a few.
