Each day the body produces huge amounts of enzymes, which it uses for all its chemical actions and reactions. Digestive enzymes are produced in the salivary glands of the mouth and in the stomach, pancreas, and small intestine. They are responsible for the digestion of nutrients as well as their absorption, transportation, metabolization, and elimination.
Because enzymes are extremely sensitive to heat, many are harmed by modern food-processing methods like microwaving and pasteurization, which render them ineffective.
The body uses three main kinds of enzymes in the digestive process. Vitabase Ultra Veggie Enzymes contains all three. Amylase enzymes, which break down starches or carbohydrates, are found naturally in the mouth saliva and the pancreatic and intestinal fluids. Protease enzymes, used to break down proteins, are found in the pancreatic and intestinal fluids. Lipase aids in fat digestion.
Ultra Veggie Enzymes also includes several other important enzymes to aid in digestion. Also included are cellulase for fiber breakdown, lactase for aid in digesting dairy products, and invertase, which works on breaking down sucrose.
Two other helpful enzymes included in this formula are bromelain and papain. Bromelain comes from pineapple, and papain comes from papaya. Bromelain assists in protein digestion. Papain is particularly helpful in breaking down meat fibers and is included in some commercially available powdered-meat tenderizers. Both are often used to relieve indigestion.
National Enzyme Company, the industry leader in enzyme technology, manufactures the enzymes in our formula.
Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement, adults take one (1) vegetarian capsule immediately prior to mealtime, or as directed by a health care professional. Store in a cool, dry place and away from direct light.
