What is Superzymes™?
Superzymes™ is a combination of several enzymes and naturally occurring extracts that aid in the absorption of key nutrients and minerals from our diets.
Each component is specifically picked to aid in a separate process of our digestive system.
What does each component do?
A rare but naturally occurring chemical found often in Mediterranean diets, Betaine is beneficial for protecting cells, proteins, and enzymes from environmental stress and dehydration.
The main digestive enzyme found in our stomachs, Pepsin is responsible for the breakdown of proteins into useful amino acids.
Extracted from pineapples, Bromelain is a enzyme mixture that aids in the breakdown of protein into its absorbed form.
Extracted from papayas, Papain is an enzyme that aids in the breakdown of protein.
Ox Bile Extract:
Derived from bovine sources, Ox Bile Extract or Ox Bile Salts are key for breaking down fat and for absorption of fat-soluble vitamins. Ox Bile is also recommended for iron-absorption.
A combination of three key enzymes, one for each major nutrient type. Amylase for the breakdown and absorption of sugars; Protease for the breakdown and absorption of protein; and Lipase for the breakdown and absorption of fat.
A soothing herb that aids in comfortable digestion.
The role of enzyme supplementation in digestive disorders.
This article reviews various forms of enzyme supplementation used clinically in digestive and absorption disorders. Enzyme supplementation plays an integral role in the management of various digestive disorders, particularly with regard to exocrine pancreatic insufficiency. However, application of enzymes may also be beneficial for other conditions associated with poor digestion including lactose intolerance. Historically, porcine and bovine pancreatic enzymes have been the preferred form of supplementation for exocrine pancreatic insufficiency. Use of microbe-derived lipase has shown promise with studies indicating benefit similar to pancreatic enzymes, but at a lower dosage concentration and with a broader pH range. Safety and efficacy of enzymes derived from microbial species in the treatment of conditions such as malabsorption and lactose intolerance is promising. Plant-based enzymes, such as bromelain from pineapple, serve as effective digestive aids in the breakdown of proteins. Synergistic effects have been observed using a combination of animal-based enzymes and microbe-derived enzymes or bromelain.
