Amylase, malt diastase, glucoamylase, beta-glucanase – These enzymes help to take the heavy load off of our digestive processes, reducing many common digestive upsets such as heaviness, lethargy, bloating, or gas.
Invertase, lactase – These enzymes assist with the breakdown of sugars, such as dairy, into glucose, fructose, and galactose. Glucose is directly absorbed into the bloodstream during digestion to supply the body with energy.
Pectinase, cellulase, hemicellulase, alpha galactosidase – These refer to a group of enzymes which, acting together, hydrolyze pectin, cellulose, and hemicellulose. Hemicellulase and cellulose are crucial for the breaking down of carbohydrates in plant cell walls. Alpha galactosidase is an enzyme that stops bloating, abdominal distention, and flatulence.
Phytase, xylanase – Phytase and xylanase help break down phytic acid and hemicelluloses. They allow more nutrients to be released from vegetables that have higher fiber content. Phytase breaks down indigestible phytic acid, and as a result, prevents gas and digestive discomfort.
