DigeZyme®† [Amylase (2,400 DU±), Protease (600 PC±), Cellulase (110 CU±), Lactase (400 LAC±), Lipase (20 FIP±)]: 100 mg
DigeZyme® is a multienzyme complex composed mainly of amylases (starch hydrolyzing enzymes), proteases (protein hydrolyzing enzymes) and lipases (lipid hydrolyzing enzymes). These digestive enzymes collectively support the breakdown of complex macromolecules into energy sources and promote the release of the nutrient content from the foods we eat. The digestive system naturally produces digestive enzymes. DigeZyme® supplements the gastrointestinal tract with enzymes to adequately support the body’s ability to digest food. In addition to the amylases, proteases, and lipases, DigeZyme® contains two additional digestive enzymes including lactase (lactose hydrolyzing enzyme) and cellulase (cellulose hydrolyzing enzyme).*
Sucrase: 400 SU±
Sucrase is a digestive enzyme secreted by the villi of the epithelium in the small intestine that supports the hydrolysis (chemical breakdown) of sucrose, also known as table sugar, into glucose and fructose. Glucose and fructose can then enter the blood stream and be used for energy.*
Magnesium (Carbonate): 24 mg
Magnesium promotes the normal synthesis of all proteins, nucleic acids, nucleotides, cyclic adenosine monophosphate, lipids and carbohydrates. Magnesium also promotes cardiovascular health by supporting normal platelet activity, helping to maintain normal cholesterol levels, and helping to maintain the normal regulation of the heart and blood pressure.*
Potassium (Bicarbonate): 90 mg
Potassium is an essential macro-mineral that helps maintain fluid balance. It promotes normal synthesis of glycogen and proteins, as well as the proper release of energy from protein, fat and carbohydrates during metabolism metabolization. Potassium also promotes the normal elimination of wastes and generally contributes to a sense of well-being. Potassium is stored in the muscles.*
Bacillus coagulans (Lactospore®†): 150,000,000 CFU‡
Previously known as Lactobacillus sporogenes, Bacillus coagulans is a lactic acid producing bacteria. Even though it produces lactic acid, it is not a lactic acid bacteria (i.e. lactobacillus).1 B. coagulans also produce reproductive spores, which sets it apart from many other probiotics.1 It has shown to survive high levels of stomach acid, which means that it arrives to the small intestine as live bacteria so that it may provide health benefits.1 Research has shown B. coagulans to promote digestive and gastrointestinal health.*
