Introducing our latest product, Primo DIGE5T! Filled with the best ingredients to create one of the best digestive enzyme products in the market. Digestive enzymes are a group of enzymes that break down polymeric macromolecules into their smaller building blocks, in order to facilitate their absorption by the body. It helps break down fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. Once nutrients are broken down into small enough molecules, they are absorbed through the wall of the small intestine into the blood and then delivered throughout the body. Enzymes such as Lipase, Amylase, and Proteases are key ingredients to help breakdown molecules for the digestive system.
Alpha-Amylase is a digestive enzyme that works with starch in food, breaking it down into smaller carbohydrate molecules. The enzyme is made in two places. First, salivary glands in your mouth make salivary amylase, which begins the digestive process by breaking down starch when you chew your food, converting it into maltose, a smaller carbohydrate. When starchy foods like rice and potatoes begin to break down in your mouth, you might detect a slightly sweet taste as maltose is released. Cells in your pancreas make another type of amylase, which passes through a duct to reach your small intestine. Pancreatic amylase completes the digestion of carbohydrates, producing glucose, a small molecule that is absorbed into your blood and carried throughout your body.
Fungal Protease A
Any enzymes that break down protein into its building blocks, amino acids, is called a protease. Your digestive tract produces a number of these enzymes, but the three main proteases are pepsin, trypsin, and chymotrypsin. Special cells in your stomach produce an inactive enzyme, pepsinogen, which changes into pepsin when it contacts the acid environment in your stomach. Pepsin breaks certain chemical bonds in proteins, producing smaller molecules called peptides and beginning protein digestion. Your pancreas makes trypsin and chymotrypsin enzymes that are released into your small intestine through the pancreatic duct. When partially digested food moves from your stomach into your intestine, trypsin, and chymotrypsin complete protein digestion producing simple amino acids that are absorbed into your circulation.
Lipase is an enzyme that breaks down dietary fats into smaller molecules called fatty acids and glycerol. Lipase specifically digests butterfat in your food.
