Digestive Enzymes Ultra w/ Betaine HCl is a comprehensive, high-potency vegetarian digestive enzyme blend that provides optimal support across a wide pH range and may ease gas and bloating with certain foods. These enzymes help break down carbohydrates, fat, glucose, lactose and fiber, thereby rendering nutrients more bioavailable and better absorbed.
Proteases included in this formula provide optimal activity across a wide pH range. They facilitate the normal breakdown of proteins and di- and tri-peptides. Lipase promotes lipid breakdown while amylase and glucoamylase are included to stimulate polysaccharide breakdown of starch and glycogen. Invertase and lactase support digestion of carbohydrate disaccharides, including the dairy sugar lactose. This formula also offers numerous enzymes to support fiber breakdown, including cellulase, hemicellulase, beta-glucanase and phytase. These enzymes act to break down cell wall components and phytic acid, promoting nutrient bioavailability of fiber-containing foods. Additionally, alpha-galactosidase promotes the breakdown of certain complex carbohydrates, such as raffinose and stachyose, found in some vegetables, grains and legumes–helping to relieve occasional bloating or gas. The addition of HCl (hydrochloric acid) further enhances digestive function, supporting optimal gastric pH and providing the necessary gastric-juice component to break down foods. HCl is also necessary for adequate absorption of protein, calcium, vitamin B12 and iron. The naturally low pH of the stomach's hydrochloric acid destroys ingested bacteria and microorganisms. This formula can benefit anyone seeking enhanced digestion.
