Hectic lifestyles and overcooked food can make digestion less than optimal. Poor
digestion can produce bloating and gas, cramping, diarrhea or constipation, and even
food intolerances. Incomplete digestion of food proteins may also be linked to food
allergies, and improper digestion of foodstuffs can cause foods to be fermented in
the gut, and can lead to the proliferation of "bad" bacteria and yeast at the expense
of "good" intestinal bacteria. More complete digestion removes a potential food source
for these bad bacteria, allowing for the complete breakdown of food proteins which helps
support regular bowel movements.
Ortho Digestzyme is a full-spectrum enzyme strategically designed to support each phase
of digestion. In the gastric phase, betaine HCl and pepsin prime the stomach, ensuring
proper pH to initiate the first phase of digestion. This sets up for the second stage of
digestion, the enteric phase, in which high-concentration protease, amylase, lipase, and
trypsin are released and activated in the small intestine to ensure proper protein breakdown
and fat absorption. This unique blend of high-powered enzymes works to enhance digestion
and ensure maximum nutrient intake.
