Functions of Superzymes in the body
- Supports healthy digestive function
- Enhances better absorption of nutrients
- Promotes better digestion of proteins, fats, carbohydrates and nutrients
- Provides three types of digestive enzymes (amylase, lipase, and protease)
The groups of digestive enzymes, amylase, lipase, and protease in this Superzyme supplement are very important to help ameliorate digestive function as they allow the body to digest food correctly – including starches, fats and proteins.
- Amylase helps break down starches into simple sugars.
- Lipase helps break down fats, particularly triglycerides.
- Protease helps break down proteins into smaller proteins or amino acids so they can be more easily absorbed by the intestines.
