Quest Enzyme Digest contains digestive enzymes to help digest carbohydrates, proteins and fats into fuel for the body.
Quest Enzyme Digest is a specially formulated food supplement which supports individuals with a reduced natural secretion of digestive enzymes. It contains Betaine to stimulate the digestive process, and peppermint oil for its calming effect on the stomach.
Contains a broad spectrum of enzymes needed to support proper digestion of proteins, carbohydrates and fats. Combined with betaine HCl and peppermint oil, which help maintain effective digestion, peppermint has a carminative and antispasmodic action. Supplementing additional digestive enzymes is useful with increasing age, in cases of digestive disorders where the digestive potential is compromised to help reduce symptoms of disturbed digestion such as heartburn, indigestion, bloating or flatulence. Recommended for sportspersons to aid digestion of protein, the elderly or when levels of enzymes produced become insufficient.

How does Enzyme Digest Help with the Digestion of Foods?
Digestive enzymes are naturally secreted in the body from the salivary glands, lingual glands, stomach, pancreas, liver and intestinal mucosa. Some people have a reduced ability to produce digestive enzymes. This may be the case with genetic predispositions, illness, injury, chronic stress, ageing or with excessive exercise. There may be times in people’s lives where their need for enzymes increases, such as with increased protein and calorie intake with athletes on a weight gain diet. This can have a profound effect on the breaking down of foods, resulting in many unpleasant symptoms of compromised digestion, including gas, bloating, cramping, diarrhoea, indigestion, heartburn and food sensitivities(1).
