The gastrointestinal tract is a long muscular tube that functions as the food processor for the human body. The digestive system includes the following organs: the mouth and salivary glands, stomach, the small and large intestines, colon, liver, pancreas, and the gall bladder. The gastrointestinal tract is not a passive system; rather, it has the capability to sense and react to the materials that are passed through it. For a healthy digestive system, every person requires different food selections that match their gastrointestinal tract capacity.
The aging process and certain health issues cause a reduction in the body’s enzyme production. One effect of this reduction is a bloated feeling soon after eating a large meal. Enzymes are essential to the body’s absorption and full use of food. The primary digestive enzymes are proteases (to digest protein), amylases (to digest carbohydrate), and lipases (to digest fat). These enzymes function as a biological catalyst to help break down food. Raw foods also provide enzymes that naturally break down food for proper absorption. The capacity of the living organism to make enzymes diminishes with age.
As humans age, pancreatic enzyme levels decline, diminishing the ability to break down food. Enhanced Super Digestive Enzymes is Life Extension's response to the need for a comprehensive digestive enzyme supplement. Designed to adapt to a variety of stomach acid pH conditions, Enhanced Super Digestive Enzymes facilitates more powerful digestion of protein, fat, carbohydrates, and milk lactose than our previous formula. With five times more activity and a smaller, easy-to-swallow capsule size, this formula provides greater enzyme activity per serving for the same price.
