Orthomolecular Digestive Enzymes
Your body needs a properly working digestive system, so you don’t miss out on all the nutritional benefits of the foods you eat. If your stomach enzymes aren’t breaking down your food effectively, that’s a problem. Even if you’re eating well and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, your body isn’t able to process those nutrients correctly, so they’ll just be going to waste. The medical term for poor digestion is “malabsorption.” It can lead to many unpleasant conditions, including diarrhea, bloating, gas, or a lack of energy. You can also develop more serious conditions if your organs aren’t getting enough nutrients.
Ortho Molecular Products’ Ortho Digestzyme contains a combination of all natural ingredients and enzymes. Taking this supplement—in combination with a well-balanced diet—helps your digestive system work efficiently, reducing your risk of vitamin and mineral deficiencies. The capsules contain a formula that’s designed to target specific food types and break them down as completely as possible, so your body can better absorb those nutrients. The ingredients in these capsules include:
- Pepsin 1:3,000—a protease (which is an enzyme that breaks down protein into peptides) that’s normally released by cells in your stomach
- Betaine HCl USP—In order for digestion to work best, your stomach acid needs a slightly acidic pH. Betaine Hydrochloride is an acidic form of the chemical compound betaine, and may help promote a more acidic pH in your stomach.
- Pancreatin 8X USP—This contains the powerful and prominent digestive enzymes lipase, protease and amylase; they work to break down lipids (fats), proteins, and starches, respectively. Pancreatin 8X USP might help support sufficient enzyme activity.
This 90-capsule bottle of Ortho Digestzyme by Ortho Molecular Products should last you for approximately one to two months, depending on your dosage. Generally, a person takes one capsule with each meal but some people use only one or two capsules a day depending on how well it’s tolerated.
