Doctor's Best Digestive Enzymes is a uniquely formulated, full-spectrum high potency digestive enzyme blend created to complement and support the body's own digestive capacities. Each capsule provides the body with vegetarian microbial-derived enzymes designed to optimally aid the digestion of fats, proteins and carbohydrates present in cooked and raw food. The formula supplies the added support of alpha-galactosidase and beta-glucanase to break down vegetables, beans and grains, and enzymes such as glucoamylase and invertase to assist with the digestion of sugars. In addition, this complete formula contains friendly bacteria and other cofactors to uniquely promote optimal intestinal health. Best Digestive Enzymes Benefits
  • Provides Optimal Support for Healthy Digestion
  • Assists Digestion of Proteins, Carbohydrates and Fats
  • Supplemental Enzymes may Enhance Overall Health Digestive enzymes are produced by the pancreas and secreted into the duodenum (upper small intestine), where proteins, carbohydrates and fats are broken down prior to absorption. As we age, the body's capacity to produce enzymes may decline. Moreover, stress and other health difficulties may impact enzyme production. Overeating sometimes causes incomplete digestion. Occasional heartburn, bloating, belching, discomfort, and a "sour stomach" is often a result of this. Supplementation with the enzymes in Best Digestive Enzymes - All Vegetarian supports replenishment of the body's enzyme levels, helping to relieve the burden on an overworked pancreas. Benefits of Microbial Enzyme Supplementation
    Enzyme supplementation promotes enhanced digestion and delivery of vital nutrients to the body. This benefits good health in many ways, including better elimination, support for healthy energy levels and maintenance of healthy body weight . Enzymes also help prevent accumulation of undigested foods in the large intestine, which may disrupt the normal healthy bacterial balance in the bowel. Best Digestive Enzymes contains microbial-derived enzymes that have a long history of research and use in Japan and in Europe. In fact, research on such non-animal source enzymes for therapeutic purposes has been conducted since the 1950s in Europe and Scandinavia. Scientists there were the first to report on the isolation and purification of individual enzymes from microbes such as Aspergillus oryzae and others. They also were the first to publish reports on the use and efficacy of various microbial enzymes for therapeutic purposes in studies on animals and humans. Microbial-derived enzymes have distinct advantages over animal-sourced enzymes such as pancreatin and have been shown to be more effective at supporting the digestive physiology of the human body when supplemented. Animal-derived standard enzyme preparations are active only in a small pH range and the activity of these enzymes is destroyed by acidic conditions in the stomach. By contrast, microbial-derived enzymes have higher activity levels (less enzyme has to be used for the same purpose) and are active over a wide pH range, with some reports showing activity from pH 2 to 10. This means that while over 90% of animal-derived enzymes may be inactivated in the stomach and be useless for digestive purposes, microbial-derived enzymes would begin digesting food in the acidic conditions of the stomach and continue this process well into the small intestine, increasing the efficiency of the digestive process.
