Each enzyme in Gotta-Digest has a role to play that ultimately can help the body better absorb nutrients from food and supplements. Amylase, an enzyme that helps the body digest starch, is integral to the breakdown of refined carbohydrates, potatoes and other starchy foods. Protease breaks down the peptide bonds that join the amino acids in a protein, ensuring the amino acids are readily available to the body. The enzyme lipase splits apart emulsified fats. Lactase digests milk sugar, while cellulase helps break down plant and vegetable matter. These vegetarian Gotta-Digest (provided in a vegetarian capsule) are generally better tolerated than animal-source enzymes, and they work over a broader pH range in the intestinal tract.
Each capsule provides one or more forms of the following enzymes:
Alpha Galactosidase: Helps digest beans, legumes and vegetables.
Amylase: Helps digest carbohydrates.
Beta Glucanase: Helps digest fiber and grains.
Bromelain : Helps digest proteins and acts as a natural anti-inflammatory.
Cellulase: Helps digest plant wall and fiber.
Glucoamylase: Helps digest carbohydrates.
Hemicellulase: Helps digest carbohydrates in plant foods.
Invertase: Helps digest sucrose.
Lactase: Helps digest milk sugar in dairy products.
Lipase: Helps digest fats.
Malt Diastase: Helps digest carbohydrates from grains.
Papain: Helps digest proteins and acts as a natural anti-inflammatory.
Pectinase: Helps digest fruit and vegetables.
Phytase: Helps digest phytic acid in nuts and grains.
Protease: Helps digest protein.
Xylanase: Helps digest plant wall fiber.
