Ingredients per capsule:
Protease (I, II, III, IV) 70mg 18,000 USP units
Bromelain 40mg 100 FCC units
Amylase 140mg 22,000 USP units
Lipase 80mg 12,000 USP units
Lactase 30mg 3,900 FCC units
Sucrase 30mg 4,300 INV units
Maltase 60mg 4,500 FCC units
Cellulase 20mg 3,500 FCC units
Units refer to enzyme activity defined by the amount of substrate that a unit of specific enzyme will break down per unit of time according to the United Stated Pharmacopoeia (USP) and the Food Chemicals Codex (FCC). All units are normalized to human body temperature (37oC).
Suggested dose for adults: 1-2 capsules at the beginning of each meal or as directed by your health care practitioner.
Primary action: This multi-enzyme blend contributes to the full digestion of ingested foods thereby alleviating many of the conditions and symptoms of improper digestion.
Strict raw material assays at body temperature are used to verify the quality of the enzymes used in Digezyme to ensure the maximum possible activity. These enzymes are non-animal, pharmaceutical grade and contain no mycotoxins, fungi or other contaminants. The enzymes are chosen and blended to remain active throughout a pH range of 2-12, so that they retain their activity after passing through the acid conditions of the stomach and are therefore fully active in the small intestine where most of the digestive process occurs.
An important but often overlooked factor in plant enzyme preparations is to utilize enzymes that are active at body temperature. For example, a plant-sourced protease may have an activity of 60,000 units at a temperature of 25oC. Yet, at 37oC (body temperature), the same enzyme may only have an activity of 2,000 units, if any at all. This can be misleading, which is why the enzyme activity units for Digezyme have been normalized to show their exact activity at 37oC, human body temperature.
