The digestive enzyme amylase, found in saliva and pancreatic fluid, helps convert starch and glycogen into simple sugars.*
A digestive enzyme naturally released by the small intestine. It helps break down carbohydrates and starch found in most veggies, for easy absorption by the body.*
This digestive enzyme is found in our mouths, and starts the process of chemical digestion. It also helps break down sugar into fructose and glucose.*
A digestive enzyme found in the small intestine of humans and other mammals. It's essential to the complete digestion of whole milk, as it breaks down lactose, a sugar which gives milk its sweetness.
This digestive enzyme is present in saliva and pancreatic juice, yeasts, bacteria and plants. It helps break down maltose and similar sugars to form glucose.* Maltose develops in many starchy vegetables like sweet potatoes, nuts and legumes when they're digested or cooked.
The digestive enzyme alpha-galactosidase is naturally found in green coffee beans, and several other plants and mammals, including humans. It's been shown to reduce gas production following a meal rich in fermentable carbs by breaking down the sugar-fat complexes commonly found in hard-to-digest foods like broccoli, cabbage, peanuts and beans.* And it may be helpful in patients with gas-related symptoms.*
Beta-Glucanase is a group of carbohydrate enzymes which breaks down bonds within beta-glucan, found in heavy grains like oats, barley and rye as well in fungi like candida.*
This digestive enzyme is a key to bone health.* Commonly found in plant material, it helps break down grains, legumes, seeds and corn.
Protease Peptidase Complex
One of the few digestive enzymes found in the pancreas and the stomach that helps with the breakdown of proteins like gluten and casein, rich in the amino acid, proline.* They also play a vital role in blood clotting and cell division.*
This digestive enzyme — produced in the pancreas, mouth and stomach — helps break down dietary fats so the intestines easily absorb them. It also allows nutrients and waste to move through cellular walls.*
Cellulose (base for encapsulation)
Cellulose is a naturally occurring substance (ie a long chain of sugar molecules) that's an important cellular component of green plants. We chose this ingredient to satisfy the needs of our most sensitive customers.
Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC), water. Vegetable (vegan) capsules consist of only two ingredients: HPMC and purified water. HPMC is derived from vegetable cellulose of either pine or poplar. 100% natural, these capsules contain no preservatives, no gelatin, wheat, animal by-products or starch.
