Natural digestive enzymes that improve digestion and alleviate GI distress.
Enzymes in the digestive system are responsible for breaking down and absorbing the food you eat. A lack of these enzymes can lead to bloating, gas, or cramping after meals and even malnourishment. Revive's Digest Aid formula was designed to assist in the break down of food, promote optimal digestion and nutrient absorption.
Ingredients in Digest Aid:
Amylase, Lipase and Protease are 3 main enzymes responsible for the digestion of fat, protein and carbohydrates.
Amylase enzymes are responsible for the break down of carbohydrates and converts it into sugar(glucose.) Other enzymes in Digest Aid that contribute to breaking down carbs are acid maltase, glucoamylase, alpha-galactosidase, invertase, cellulase, and xylanase.
Lipase and liver bile break down fats. A lack of lipase can lead to deficiencies in fat-soluble vitamins(A, D, E, and K.)
Protease (4.5, 6.0 and 3.0) breaks down protein into amino acids and also prevents bacteria and yeast from entering the intestines. Papain and peptidase also contribute to the break down of protein.
Pectinase enzymes, extract clarify and filter fruit juices and wines.
Lactase breaks down the lactose in food and prevents symptoms like bloating, diarrhea, and gas that individuals may experience after consuming milk products.
Bromelain is an enzyme found in pineapples used to reduce inflammation and improve digestion.
Artichoke Leaf Extract and Gentian are known for reducing symptoms of indigestion like nausea, vomiting, gas or stomach pain.
