Enhanced Super Digestive Enzymes provides specific natural vegetarian digestive enzymes required to support the natural reactions that break down food and has been demonstrated to optimize digestion and nutrient absorption. This vegetarian digestive enzyme supplement contains a broad array of digestive enzymes within the formula.
Life Extension Enhanced Super Digestive Enzymes supplement contain vegetarian digestive enzymes to help relieve bloating, stomach pain, constipation and enhance nutrient availability to the body.
Digestive enzymes help you break down the foods you eat, as well as help you stay comfortable after meals. But your body doesn’t produce the enzymes you need to digest plant fiber—bad news for vegans, vegetarians, or anyone trying to up their intake of hard-to-digest veggies, legumes, fruit, or leafy greens. This digestive health formula can help.
Research has shown that supplementing with digestive enzymes can promote optimal digestion and absorption of nutrients from the foods you eat. This formula provides 10 vegetarian enzymes that help digest plant-based diets as well as protein, dairy, starches and fat.
Normal ageing and related health issues can decrease production of stomach enzymes resulting in a bloated feeling.
These digestive enzymes work in a variety of pH conditions. This is important, because different parts of your gastrointestinal tract (stomach, intestines, etc.) have different pH levels—which can also affect digestion.
