AOR Zymes - 100 Capsules
Porcine derived pancreatic enzymes are far more effective in the assimilation of food than plant-derived enzymes because they are more similar to human pancreatic enzymes. AOR Zymes is a digestive aid that helps reduce gas production and flatulence following a meal rich in fermentable carbohydrates such as vegetables, legumes and whole grains. AOR Zymes helps prevent gastrointestinal intolerance of fermentable carbohydrates.
•Digestion •Gastrointestinal health •Inflammation The main metabolites found in the food we eat are proteins, lipids and carbohydrates. They are essential to life and they are the only source of energy for our body. Like all nutrients, we must extract them from our food. The enzymes we produce during digestion allow this process to occur. Protease, lipase and amylase are the enzymes required to break down proteins, lipids and carbohydrates respectively. They are catabolic enzymes because they break and cleave larger molecules into particles that can be absorbed and utilized by our body. In order to make use of the nutrients found in the food we eat, we must digest them. Digestion is a metabolic process that requires considerable resources. Indeed, large portions of the proteins we absorb are used to support digestion and repair and replenish the cells of the gastrointestinal tract. Most cells found in the organs of the gastrointestinal tract have a very rapid turnover time. Likewise, a lot of energy is required for digestion. Enzymatic supplementation is especially helpful at increasing the efficiency of the digestive process, improving absorption and sparing the organs of digestion.
