“As recommended by naturopath Max Tomlinson in Marie Claire Magazine for the treatment of bloating and poor digestion”.
Digestive enzymes are vitally important as they enable our digestive system to break down proteins, carbohydrates and fats into their raw components in order to make the nutrients available for absorption and use by the body.
Each person has a finite reserve of enzymes, which can be in short supply during times of stress, illness or as we get older. Over time, poor digestion can lead to malnutrition and a range of associated health conditions.

Provides hydrochloric acid as an aid to digestion, as hydrochloric production declines with age. Gastric acid secretion deficiency increases the likelihood of intestinal bacterial and parasitic infections. Too little hydrochloric acid also impairs digestion of foods (especially protein) and the complete absorption of nutrients.
Amylase: An enzyme that helps to digest carbohydrates.
Protease 3 and 4.5: These are enzymes that break the peptide bonds of proteins and are divided into acid, neutral, and alkaline proteases.
Lipase: A fat digestion enzyme. People with pancreatic insufficiency require lipase.
Bromelain: A proteolytic protein and high-fat meals digestion enzyme derived from the stem of the pineapple plant. Used as a digestive aid, anti inflammatory, smooth muscle relaxant and anti oedema supplement.
