Glucanase, Xylanasem Pectinase, Phytase
Glucanase, Xylanase, Pectinase, and Phytase are all digestive enzymes.
Glucanase or Beta-glucanase, breaks down polysaccharides and fibers known as beta-glucans.
Xylanase breaks down the sugar xylose.
Pectinase breaks down carbohydrates such as pectin that can be found in most fruits.
Phytase breaks down carbohydrates, specifically phytates (phytic acid), present in many difficult to digest grains and beans. Especially useful for those suffering from serious bowel disorders which result in an inability to handle phytates from soy and gluten from wheat, oats, rye and barley. Phytase may increase mineral absorption and the bioavailability of iron, zinc, calcium, and magnesium.
