The aging process and certain health issues cause a reduction in the body’s production of digestive enzymes. One effect of this reduction is a bloated feeling soon after eating a large meal. Digestive enzymes are essential to the body’s absorption and full use of food.1-2 The primary digestive enzymes are protease (to digest protein), amylase (to digest carbohydrate), and lipase (to digest fat). These enzymes function as biological catalysts to speed the reactions that break down food. Raw foods also provide enzymes that naturally break down food for proper absorption. The capacity of the living organism to make enzymes diminishes with age.
Twinlab® Pancreatin (quadruple strength) is a source of pancreatin digestive enzymes. Each capsule will digest approximately 50 grams of protein, 50 grams of starch, and 67 grams of fat. This can help maintain healthy pancreatin enzyme levels assisting with normal digestion and enhanced absorption.28,84-87
