Doctor's Best Digestive Enzymes is a full-spectrum high potency digestive enzyme blend created to complement and support the body's own digestive capacities.
Each capsule provides the body with enzymes designed to optimally aid the digestion of fats, proteins and carbohydrates present in cooked and raw food.* The formula provides the support of alpha-galactosidase and beta-glucanase to break down vegetables, beans and grains, and enzymes such as glucoamylase and invertase to assist with the digestion of carbohydrates.* In addition, this complete formula contains beneficial bacteria to uniquely promote optimal intestinal health. How does it work? Digestive enzymes are produced by the pancreas and secreted into the duodenum (upper small intestine) where proteins, carbohydrates, and fats are broken down prior to absorption. The body's capacity to produce enzymes may decline with age. Moreover, stress and other unhealthy lifestyle factors may impact enzyme production. Supplementation with the enzymes in Best Digestive Enzymes supports replenishment of the body's enzyme levels, promoting healthy digestion and delivery of vital nutrients to the body. Maintenance of healthy digestion not only helps with occasional gastrointestinal discomfort, but also supports the very integrity of the intestinal mucosa. Additionally, enzymes may enhance healthy bacterial balance in the bowel by lessening the accumulation of undigested foods in the large intestine. *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
