Natures Aid Digestive Enzyme Complex provide amylase for carbohydrate digestion, lipase for fat digestion, protease for protein digestion, cellulase for cellulose digestion and lactase for lactose digestion. In addition to these enzymes the product also contains betaine hydrochloride to support stomach acid levels.
Enzymes play an essential role in virtually every biochemical activity that takes place within the body and the digestive process is certainly no exception.
Life as we know it could not exist without the action of enzymes even in the presence of sufficient water, vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
Enzymes act as catalysts in body processes accelerating reaction to the speed required to maintain life. When enzyme levels are low reactions are slowed down to such a degree that the body begins to suffer.
Anyone suffering from gastritis or a stomach ulcer should consult a health care practitioner prior to using digestive enzymes. Anyone experiencing soft stools, flatulence or bloating after starting to use digestive enzymes should lower their dose.
