Phase 1 ( upper GI tract):
Bromelain is a mixture of protein-digesting enzymes found naturally in pineapples. Bromelain aids in digestion and in reducing inflammation associated with infection and physical injuries. In fact there is a wide array of medical conditions which can be treated with bromelain such as nasal and sinus congestion, arthritis, wounds and burns, bronchitis, scleroderma, and a lot more. Also, bromelain may contain an enzyme that may prove to be very helpful to the heart.
Betaine HCL, is a naturally occurring hydrochloric acid in the stomach that helps digest food by breaking down fats and proteins. It is required for the adequate absorption of protein, calcium, vitamin B12, and iron. It is produced in the parietal cells of the stomach and is not present in food. It is an effective remedy against heart disease and may also be beneficial in the treatment of heartburn, anemia, gall stones, anemia, and other conditions as it can destroy ingested bacteria and microorganisms.
L glutamic Acid HCL
L-glutamic acid, also known as l-glutamate oxidase, or L-glutamic acid oxidase is the major excitatory neurotransmitter in the Central Nervous System. It is a non essential amino acid naturally occurring in the L-form. It is considered as a non-essential amino acid because the body has the ability to produce it from simpler compounds. L-glutamic acid stimulates the neurons in the Central Nervous System, improving overall brain health, attitude, and mental performance. It is responsible for metabolizing sugar and fats and helps in the transportation of potassium across the blood-brain barrier and is used by the brain as fuel.
Active Enzyme Blend:
Amylase is a starch digesting enzyme. It is naturally found in the tissues but it is largely present in the saliva and in the pancreatic juice. Amylase is responsible for breaking down dietary starch into simple sugars or glucose units for the body to use as fuel.
Cellulase is a group of enzymes responsible for the catalytic conversion of cellulose fiber into blood sugar. Cellulase enzymes are present in the intestinal bacteria and assists in the absorption of good nutrients from the intestinal tract.
Lactase refers to a group of enzymes that catalyzes the breaking down of dietary lactose or milk sugar. Lactase is present in the small intestine, kidney, and in the liver. Once lactose is broken down, the simple sugars glucose and galactase are then absorbed by the digestive tract to be distributed throughout the body. Glucose is primarily used as fuel by the body while components of the galactase are used for making brain material.
Lipase is a naturally occuring enzyme found in the stomach and pancreatic juice. It aids in the digestion of dietary fats and lipids, and thus helps in maintaining correct gall bladder function. It is also responsible for the synthesis of adipose tissue or fat stores into fuel.
Protease is a group of essential digestive enzymes that conduct protein digestion. Proteins, which produce amino acids, are the essential structural element of every cell in the body. Therefore, by breaking down the peptide bonds in the protein foods, amino acids may then be used by the body. In addition, protease is able to disintegrate almost all proteins in the body including cellular debris and toxins in the body, thus it is also provides support to the immune system.
Invertase is a yeast derived enzyme which catalyzes the breakdown of sucrose into its components fructose and glucose.
Maltase is an enzyme that catalyzes the cleaving of the disaccharride maltose into the simple sugar glucose. It is found in yeast, plants, and bacteria. In humans it is secreted by the surface cells of the small intestine. Maltase is primarily responsible for converting maltose into glucose. Maltose is cleaved by the other enzyme amylase. Deficiency of maltase results in Pompe’s disease.
Sucrase is an enzyme present in yeast and in the small intestines of humans. It is capable of breaking down disaccharide sucrose into its constituent glucose and fructose. Once broken down, these simple sugars can then be easily absorbed through the walls of the small intestine.
Diastase is a starch-digesting enzyme found in barley malt. It catalyzes the breakdown of hydrolized or cooked starch into dextrin and maltose. It is used in the treatment of pancreatic diseases or in conditions wherein starch digestion is absolutely deficient.
Phase 2 ( lower GI tract):
Papain is a protein-digesting enzyme that is derived from the papaya fruit. It catalyzes the breakdown of proteins and has proved to be effective in preventing burn or would infection and removing dead cells. It is also used in the treatment of edemas, ulcers, inflammatory conditions, and also indigestion.
Potassium bicarbonate is a colorless, odorless, salty compound. It is used as a source of carbon dioxide for leavening in baking (baking powder) as well as a strong buffering agent in medications (antacid).
Veg-Panzyme ( vegetarian Pancreatin replacement consisting of :
Protease, also known as proteolytic enzymes or proteinases refers to a group of protein-digesting enzymes in the body. These enzymes are essentially responsible for breaking down dietary proteins which releases the amino acids that are needed by the body. In the field of medicine, these enzymes are popularly used in oncology, blood rheology control, inflammatory conditions, as well as in immune regulation.
Amylase is a starch-digesting enzyme responsible for catalyzing the breakdown of starch in to sugar. It is found in several human tissues but is largely present in the salivary and pancreatic glands. It breaks down dietary starch into simple sugars to be easily absorbed and efficiently used by the body as fuel.
Lipase is a naturally occurring enzyme found in the stomach and pancreatic juice. It aids in the digestion of dietary fats and lipids, and thus helps in maintaining correct gall bladder function. It is also responsible for the synthesis of adipose tissue or fat stores into fuel.
SEB-relief ( proprietary blend of )
Hemicellulase is a mixture of enzymes which can breakdown components of plant fibers that are difficult to digest. And since humans are not able to easily digest plant fibers, taking hemicellulase supplements is very helpful in harvesting additional nutrition and in lessening the bulking effects of fibrous foods.
Lactase is a group of enzymes that is present in the small intestine, kidneys, and liver. It is responsible for breaking down milk sugar into simple sugars, particularly into glucose and galactase. Glucose is an essential nutrient that is used as fuel by the body while galactase supplies the necessary components for brain development.
Lactobacillus Sporogens, commonly known as probiotic, is a natural source of good bacteria that is efficient in maintaining a healthy intestinal balance and helps strengthen the immune system. This type of lactobacillus is in spore form as it passes through the stomach. And as it enters the small intestine, it germinates and multiplies rapidly to replenish normal intestinal flora.
Semithicone is an oral anti-foaming agent used to relieve bloating, pain, and discomfort brought about by the tension of gas bubbles in the stomach or intestinal tract. It allows gas bubbles to come together more easily, making the passage of gas easier, lessening the tension.
Potassium chloride, also known as “muriate of potash” is a chemical compound composed of potassium and chloride. It is a potent source of potassium. Potassium is a vital nutrient needed for several bodily functions, particularly the pumping of the heart. Taking oral potassium chloride aids in replenishing the potassium levels in the body.
Suggested Use: 2 to 6 capsules with each meal or as otherwise directed.
