Pan-Ox-5™, provided by Douglas Laboratories, is a

synergistic dietary enzyme formula that is specially

formulated for digestive support.

The pancreas supplies the major digestive enzymes

that catalyze the breakdown of starches

(carbohydrates), proteins, and fats, so that the

breakdown products can be absorbed in the upper

small intestine.

Some carbohydrate digestion takes place in the mouth

by salivary amylase, but pancreatic amylase is the

major carbohydrate-digesting enzyme. Amylases

break down starches to maltose and maltotriose,

which are further hydrolyzed into glucose by the

disaccharidases of the mucosal cells, and then

absorbed. Although cellulose is indigestible by

pancreatic and intestinal enzymes, the microflora

within the large intestine may degrade it and produce

uncomfortable symptoms in the process.

Although fat digestion starts in the mouth with the

action of salivary lipase, the great majority of fat

triglycerides are digested by pancreatic lipase secreted

by the exocrine pancreas into the duodenum. Lipases

break down triglycerides into monoglycerides and

free fatty acids, which are efficiently absorbed in the

upper small intestine.

Protein digestion is initiated in the stomach by pepsin

and hydrochloric acid, which denature and break

large proteins down to smaller polypeptides. In the

small intestine, proteases break down these

polypeptides into free amino acids, and di- and

tripeptides, which are directly absorbed by the

intestinal mucosa.

Ingredients such as aspergillus oryza, ox bile extract

and rennin can also aid in the digestion and

absorption of food.
