Digestive Enzymes Plus product image
SKU: VZ-259
Digestive Enzymes Plus is a blend of enzymes, present in both the stomach and the small intestine, aimed at facilitating digestion. It contains pancreatin, a mix of pancreatic enzymes including protease for the hydrolysis of proteins, amylase for the degradation of starches, and lipase for the digestion of fats. Digestive Enzymes Plus also comprises ox bile salts to aid in gut-fat absorption, and papain, a plant-derived proteolytic enzyme. Furthermore, betaine hydrochloride is found in this supplement; it is a source of hydrochloric acid, which acts in the gastrointestinal tract to activate pepsin, for the secretion of gastric acid. Digestive Enzymes Plus contains 200 mg of pancreatic enzymes (vs. 11.4 mg per capsule in Vitazan's Digestive Enzymes).
