A number of different enzymes are needed to deal with the range of food compounds in our diet. Some of these are produced by the body, and some are found in foods, but most processed foods lack the enzymes needed for proper digestion. Nature's Sunshine's Food Enzymes supplements the body’s production of these enzymes. and one capsule will help you digest a minimum of 30 grams of protein, 30 grams of carbohydrates and 20 grams of fats.
Pepsin is used for the digestion of proteins in an acid environment (betaine hydrochloride or HCl); pancreatin is produced by the pancreas to digest proteins, carbohydrates and fats in alkaline environments; mycozyme digests starches; papain and bromelain digest protein; bile salt makes fats soluble and prepares them for further digestion by lipase.
Each capsule supplies, alpha-amylase (mycozyme) 90mg, betaine HCl 162mg, bile salt 40mg, bromelain 50mg, lipase 15 IU (contains lactose from milk), pancreatin 22mg, papain 45mg and pepsin 60mg.
