Enhances complete nutrient absorption for better healthNPN # 80081215
Digestive enzymes play an important role in assisting the digestive process. It enhances the breakdown of food in the stomach and intestines for better digestion and assimilation of nutrients. GrandhealthTM Complete Digestive helps to relieve digestive issues, such as heartburn, diarrhoea, gas, and bloating. This unique formulation helps with digesting nutrients, vitamins and minerals, and is excellent for those with digestive problems due to stress, unbalanced diet, and poor eating habits. Start your enzymes today and achieve a healthy digestive system.
The supplementation of a comprehensive blend of enzymes to each meal can significantly assist digestion and help to alleviate digestive disorders such as heartburn, bloating, gas, and stomach upset. Inflammation in the digestive tract caused by food allergies, intestinal permeability or infections can result in a deficiency in the production of digestive enzymes. Besides, low stomach acid production associated with aging also put your enzymes reserve at risk and result in poor digestion. Most importantly, if your body is constantly under chronic or prolonged stress, our body can raise the “fight or flight” hormone that negatively affect the enzymatic activities in the gut as well. Therefore, taking enzymes before each meal helps to enhance proper digestion and assimilation of nutrients for better health.
Lipase is produced in the pancreas, mouth, and stomach. It is an enzyme used to breakdown fats in food so that it can be absorbed in the intestine. Taking lipase helps to reduce bloating, gas, and fullness following a high-fat meal.
Cellulase is an enzyme needed to digest cellulose (fiber) in fruits, vegetables, grains, and seeds, it helps to break down cellulose into simple sugars, such as glucose. The glucose from cellulose is then released into the bloodstream to provide stable fuel for our body. The remaining undigested fiber passes through the gastrointestinal tract and helps to slow down the absorption of fat and cholesterol.
Bromelain is a mixture of enzymes derived from the stem and juice of the pineapples, its function is to digest protein (proteolytic) so that nutrients can be absorbed more efficiently. It relieves discomfort associated with digestive disorders and has powerful anti-inflammatory properties, excellent for the maintenance of gastrointestinal health.
Alpha-Galactosidase is an enzyme used to break down starchy, hard-to-digest foods such as peanuts, beans, lentils and cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower. These food have carbohydrates linked to proteins or fats (known as glycoproteins or glycolipids) which are hard to disintegrate in the gut, often resulting in abdominal cramps, indigestion, excessive gas, and bloating. Our body produces alpha-galactosidase in the mouth as well as in the pancreas, however, with age, it begins to produce less and thus supplementation is necessary.
Amylase is found mainly in pancreatic juice and saliva, it facilitates the hydrolysis of starch molecules into maltose. It is an enzyme used for the digestion of potato, wheat, corn, and rice.
Lactase is an essential enzyme needed for the complete digestion of whole milk. It assists with the breakdown of lactose, a sugar found in milk and dairy products. A deficiency in lactase will result in symptoms of lactose intolerance including cramps, gas, and diarrhea. Hence, taking lactase helps to digest milk products and improve lactose absorption in lactase-deficient individuals.
Papain is a powerful protein-digesting enzyme found in papaya, it plays an important role in the digestion of tough protein fibers. It has the ability to enhance nutrient absorption of protein-based foods by breaking them down in smaller proteins, peptides, or even amino acid subunits for better absorption.
Protease, also known as the proteolytic enzyme, breaks down the peptide bonds in the protein foods into amino acids for absorption.
Acid Stable Protease
Acid Stable Protease is a protease enzyme capable of digesting protein and surviving stomach acid after digestion has completed. It supports the assimilation and absorption of nutrients in the small intestine.
Hemicellulase helps to break down hemicellulose, a type of indigestible fiber found in all plants, including glucans, galactans, and mannans. It has the ability to increase nutrients digestibility and boost prebiotic activity.
Glucoamylase plays a key role in starch digestion and energy production. It is a digestive enzyme capable of breaking off a free glucose molecule from a complex sugar-based starch such as potato, corn, rice, wheat or simple sugar like maltose. The released sugar can then be used as a source of energy for the body. Glucoamylase is part of an important group of enzymes that supports nutrients absorption and helps to create energy from the plant foods we eat.
Invertase is an enzyme used to digest sugars, it splits sucrose (table sugar) into glucose and fructose. Combined with other enzymes, it enhances the overall digestion of starch, sugar and other carbohydrate foods.
Maltase is an enzyme that performs hydrolysis of disaccharide maltose, forming glucose molecules to be used by the body for energy. It works well with other carbohydrate-digesting enzymes to break down starches and complex sugars present in plant-based food such as grains and barley into simpler, more digestible units. Maltase works well in relieving gas, bloating, and upset stomach.
Pectinase, commonly found in pectin-rich fruits such as apples, pears, and plums, helps with the digestibility and absorption of plant-based foods. In the same way as cellulase and hemicellulase, pectinase works to increase the nutritional and prebiotic value in foods. It promotes the growth and health of intestinal microbiota, thus, supporting the maintenance of good health.
Phytase is one of the most important enzymes we need for healthy digestive system, it helps to digest grains, legumes, seeds, and corn. It increases our body’s ability to absorb and assimilate minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and iron, thus, reduces mineral deficiency. In addition, phytase also helps to reduce the negative impact of phytates (phytic acid) in our body, prevents the negatively charged phytic acid from binding to positively charged minerals and proteins, remarkably lowers the excess buildup of insoluble complexes that disrupt our digestive tract.
Xylanase is an enzyme used to break down hemicellulose in your diet to increase the availability and release of nutrients from high fibrous vegetables such as beans, grains, legumes, and cereals. It converts hemicellulose into simple sugar called xylose and works well with other enzymes to relieve gas and digestive discomfort associated with consuming indigestible fiber meals.
