Pancreatic enzymes for healthy digestion*
- Plant and animal sourced enzymes to improve and enhance digestion
- Improves nutrient absorption
- Supports normal inflammatory response
AOR Zymes contains proteases to digest proteins, alpha amylase to digest starches, lipase to digest fats and alpha galactosidase for hard-to-digest polysaccharides found in legumes and vegetables that can cause gas and bloating. They are porcine pancreatic enzymes, meaning they are derived from pigs. Pancreatic enzymes from a mammalian source are similar to the enzymes naturally present in the human body.
Enzymes are as essential to life as food and water, yet they remain one of the most underappreciated factors in the field of clinical nutrition. They are the catalysts that facilitate the breakdown of food into nutrients and other particles that are absorbed by, and excreted from, our bodies. Those who wish to support their digestive system, improve overall gut health and energy, boost immunity and alleviate uncomfortable digestive symptoms such as gas and bloating can benefit from enzyme supplementation.
Enzyme supplementation promotes the health of the digestive organs by facilitating digestion itself. It increases the efficiency of the digestive process by alleviating some of the burden from the digestive organs and improving nutrient absorption. Since the body cannot access nutrients in undigested food, the more food particles can be broken down, the more nutrients are made accessible to the body for absorption. In addition, poor breakdown of food particles is thought to contribute to allergies and various digestive disorders.
AOR Zymes includes porcine pancreatic enzymes for powerful digestive support and alpha-galactosidase, an enzyme that breaks down the otherwise non-digestible polysaccharides found in legumes which minimizes the side effects associated with their consumption.
DISCUSSION: AOR Zymes is formulated with porcine derived pancreatic enzymes because they are similar to human pancreatic enzymes for healthy digestion.*
