The body’s natural enzyme production is reduced overtime by factors such as aging and various health issues .1,2 This downsizing has many effects, including an inflated sensation not long after consuming a large meal. By using an enzyme supplement, effects such as supporting ideal digestion and improved absorption of nutrients may be seen.3-5 Enhanced Super Digestive Enzymes offers a powerful supply of the amylase, protease and lipase enzymes that are devised to conform to a host of stomach acid pH conditions and offer potent digestion of protein, fat, carbohydrates, milk lactose and vegetable cellulose.6
The gastrointestinal tract is a long muscular tube that functions as the food processor for the human body.The digestive system includes the following organs: the mouth and salivary glands, stomach, the small and large intestines, colon, liver, pancreas, and the gall bladder. The gastrointestinal tract is not a passive system; rather, it has the capability to sense and react to the materials that are passed through it.7 For a healthy digestive system, every person requires different food selections that match their gastrointestinal tract capacity.
Enzymes are a critical component of the body’s ability to absorb and make full use of food. The fundamental digestive enzymes are proteases, amylases and lipases. Respectively, these enzymes function to absorb protein, carbohydrates, and fat. They also serve as a biological stimulant to assist in digesting food. The capability of living creatures to produce enzymes declines with age.
As humans age, pancreatic enzyme levels decline, diminishing the ability to break down food. Enhanced Super Digestive Enzymes is Life Extension’s response to the need for a comprehensive digestive enzyme supplement. Designed to adapt to a variety of stomach acid pH conditions, Enhanced Super Digestive Enzymes facilitates more powerful digestion of protein, fat, carbohydrates, and milk lactose than other formulas.
