As we age, hydrochloric acid and digestive enzyme secretion both decline; there is a natural need to replenish the body's digestive enzymes. Add to that the many additional factors - poor eating habits, inadequate chewing, "eating on the run," and over-consumption of alcohol - that contribute to digestive problems. Essential Enzymes is highly effective because it is a Bio-Aligned formula that contains a wide array of enzymes that break down proteins, fats, milk sugars, fiber, and carbohydrates in a wide pH range. It aids the body's natural digestive process, maximizing the body's utilization of the nutrients in the diet while decreasing digestive discomfort.
Each capsule contains 500 gm of an all-vegetarian, broad spectrum blend of digestive enzymes.
