Our friends at Klaire Labs recently shared some products with us, and today we wanted to highlight one of our favorites, the Vital-Zymes™ Complete.
The multi-enzyme formulation offers an unusually comprehensive range of plant and microbial-based enzymes, together with lysozyme, that work in concert to support normal enzyme activities such as digestion of foods and intestinal repair and maintenance mechanisms. The broad-spectrum combination of enzymes in Vital-Zymes™ Complete supports the breakdown, absorption, and utilization of macronutrients from a wide spectrum of foods, including proteins and protein peptides, complex carbohydrates, disaccharides and sugars, lipids/fats, and vegetable fibers. As such, Vital-Zymes™ Complete is an important dietary adjunct for individuals who seek to improve nutrient uptake, and for those with occasional indigestion. It can also be used for individuals who wish to support a balanced microbiota and healthy inflammation metabolism.
The vegetarian capsules deliver a full complement of high-activity enzymes and vontains highly purified enzymes to meet the needs of food-sensitive individuals. They are free of maltodextrin (wheat, rice, or corn-derived), commonly used as a base in enzyme raw materials, contain no porcine or other animal-derived enzymes, and avoid fruit-derived enzymes (bromelain, papain, and kiwi) for improved tolerance by sensitive individuals.
Vital-Zymes™ Complete supplies a broad-spectrum of disaccharidases (lactase, maltase, sucrase/invertase, pullulanase, and isomaltase) to assist cleaving of sugars that may be fermented by organisms that shift the balance of microbiota. It assists protein breakdown, but avoids excessive amounts of proteases that may irritate GI tissues. Dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP-IV) activity supports optimal cleaving of casein and gluten and their exorphin peptides (casomorphin and gluteomorphin). In addition, it supplies Serratia peptidase enzyme to support sensitive GI tissues from irritation and lysozyme for its unique lysing action on bacterial and yeast cell walls and broad immune support.
