Digestive enzymes are complex proteins involved in digestion that stimulate chemical changes in other substances. They work optimally at specific temperature and pH. Digestive enzymes include pancreatic enzymes, plant-derived enzymes, and fungal-derived enzymes. There are three classes of digestive enzymes: proteolytic enzymes needed to digest protein, lipases needed to digest fat, and, amylases needed to digest carbohydrates.
Papain breaks down tough meat fibers, and has been used for thousands of years to tenderize meat eaten in its native South America.
Pepsin is an enzyme that is produced in optimally functioning stomachs that breaks down proteins into smaller peptides. Pepsin is one of the main digestive enzymes, where it helps digest the proteins in food.
Betaine hydrochloride is an acidic form of betaine, a vitamin-like substance found in grains and other foods. Betaine hydrochloride is recommended by some doctors as a supplemental source of hydrochloric acid for people who have a deficiency of stomach acid production (hypochlorhydria).
Bile acids, in the form of ox bile salts, aid in the emulsification and digestion of fats.
Digestin also incorporates high quality, freeze-dried duodenal and stomach substances from porcine sources to support optimal digestion.‡
