The Digestive Enzyme supplement supplies enzymes to help you digest your meals more effeciently and alleviate the sense of fullness after a large meal or bloating associated with digestion. Now with added artichoke extract, this unique formula also helps provide relief from occasional digestive issues.
The Benefits of digestive enzyme
Our body natural produces enzymes to digest the foods we eat, but certain factors, including age or food sensitivities, may reduce our ability to digest foods efficiently, This can lead to stomach upset. Eating large meals can also cause mild indigestion.
Although eating a caries, healthy diet usually provides us with some enzymes to supplement those naturally made by the body, many of us don’t eat the way we should. And without a sufficient amount of functioning enzymes in our body, good digestive health may be impaired, which can lead to indigestion as ell as a reduction in the amount of nutrients we are able to absorb from our foods.
USANA’s Digestive Enzyme is a digestive aid that supplies supplemental enzymes to help break down the foods we eat so the body receives the nutrients it needs to function properly. The added artichoke extract further helps support healthy digestion.
The Science of Digestive Enzyme
Enzymes play an important role in human health. Many researchers over the last century have maintained that a loss of digestive enzymes may be a significant contributing factor to poor health as we age. This is likely partially because our food is not being broken down and we do not receive all the nourishment that we need from what we eay.
- Alpha-amylase supports the digestion of starch.
- Bromelain, protease, and papain support the digestion of proteins.
- Lactase assists in the digestion of foods containing lactose(e.g., milk) and helps with symptoms of lactose intolerance(including gas,bloating, and cramping).
- Lipase supports the breakdown of fats.
- Cellulase supports the digestion of cellulose, which usually comes from plant materials.
Artichoke extract has been used in herbal medicine to help digestive disturbances, such as dyspepsia.
The USANA Difference
Supplementing with Digestive Enzyme can increase enzyme levels for optimal digestive efficiency. It is designed to support more complete digestion and absorption of macro nutrients. The addition of artichoke extract makes USANA’s formula unique in the supplement industry.
