Maxi Health Premium Enzymax® Complex -- 60 Capsules

Super digestive enzyme complex Premium Enzymax® Complex combines a unique blend of high quality plant and microbial enzymes to support and maintain a healthy digestive system. Aids in digestion of dairy protein fats and carbohydrates. Scientific evidence suggests that enzymes can be useful for digestive support. Each year millions of people resort to over the counter medications to treat problems that can be avoided by simply taking a digestive enzyme with each meal. Nearly every person can benefit from supplementation with enzymes. Even healthy people may improve their absorption and utilization of nutrients through the use of digestive enzymes. People taking enzymes may notice increased energy less fullness after meals decreased gas and more regular bowel habits. What are Enzymes? Enzymes are responsible for ALL metabolic functions and are vital for life without them we would not exist. These proteins catalyze or accelerate all normal biochemical reactions and are highly specific regarding what they do and under what conditions they do it. All food is composed of protein fat carbohydrate and fiber. Enzymes break down each of these into progressively smaller components until they reach their basic building block form. The body uses these building blocks to rebuild and heal itself supply energy and remove toxins. Amylase (helps digest starchy foods such as white breads pastas and potatoes) will randomly hydrolyze the interior alpha-14-glucosidic bonds of starch to release simple sugars for digestion. Supplemental amylase works synergistically with endogenous human amylase to digest starchy foods such as white breads pastas and potatoes. Invertase (helps digest refined sugars) catalyzes the hydrolysis of sucrose into its component parts D- fructose and D-glucose. This action helps in the digestion of refined sugars. Protease 4.5 (helps provide protein digestion) is a mixture of acid neutral and alkaline proteases that demonstrates both exo-peptidase and endo-peptidase activity with high substrate specificity. Protease 4.5 works synergistically with endogenous enzymes to provide protein digestion in the stomach and pyloric regions of the small intestine. Glucoamylase (helps digestion of carbohydrates) will hydrolyze amylase isomaltose and dextrins to release free glucose. This enzyme works synergistically with endogenous human amylase and supplemental amylase to potentiate the complete digestion of carbohydrate rich foods. Protease 3.0 (helps provide protein digestion) is characterized by its ability to hydrolyze proteins under acid conditions. The broad specificity of acid-stable protease enables the enzyme to easily and efficiently hydrolyze most soluble proteins. Protease 3.0 is uniquely suited to work synergistically with endogenous pepsin to provide protein digestion in the stomach. Lipase (helps digest fats and oils) catalyzes the hydrolysis of triglycerides of simple fatty acid esters yielding free fatty acids. Lipase has broad substrate specificity on the fats and oils of both vegetable and animal origins. Lipase works synergistically with endogenous enzymes to help digest fatty foods throughout the entire digestive tract. D Alpha-galactosidase (helps decrease gas) is characterized by its ability to hydrolyze the alpha-1-6 linkages in melibiose raffinose and stachyose which commonly occur in vegetables and legumes. These sugars are indigestible for humans and can cause considerable digestive discomfort. Supplementation with this enzyme reduces digestive discomfort and provides a source of nutrition not normally available to humans. Neutral Bacterial Protease (provides protein digestion) is an endopetidase that hydrolyzes the interior bonds of most soluble proteins. Neutral bacterial protease works synergistically with endogenous enzymes to provide protein digestion in the pyloric regions of the small intestine. Lactase (helps digest the sugars found in milk and dairy products) is characterized by its ability to hydrolyze lactose over a wide range of temperatures and pH. This enzyme works synergistically with endogenous human lactase to digest the sugars found in milk and dairy products and therefore reduces the symptoms of lactose intolerance. Cellulase (reduces the bulking effect of fibrous foods) is a complex composed of three distinct enzymes which convert cellulose to glucose. Since humans lack the endogenous enzymes required to digest cellulose the supplementation of cellulase provides humans with an additional source of nutrition and reduces the bulking effect of fibrous foods. Pectinase (reduces the bulking effect of fibrous foods) is a mixture of enzymes which hydrolyzes pectins. Since humans lack endogenous pectinase the supplementation of pectinase provides humans with an additional source of nutrition and reduces the bulking effect of fibrous foods. Peptidase (provides protein digestion) contains a very high level of exo-peptidase activity and is able to provide a high degree of protein hydrolysis without the formation of bitter products. Peptidase works synergistically with endogenous enzymes to provide protein digestion throughout the entire digestive tract. Protease 6.0 (provides protein digestion) is a mixture of acid neutral and alkaline proteases that demonstrates both exo-peptidase and endo-peptidase activity with high substrate specificity. Protease 6.0 works synergistically with endogenous enzymes to provide protein digestion through all portions of the digestive tract. Xylanase (reduces the bulking effect of fibrous foods) hydrolyzes xylans indigestible components of plant fibers. Since humans lack the endogenous enzymes required to digest plant fibers the supplementation of xylans provides humans with an additional source of nutrition and reduces the bulking effect of fibrous foods. CereCalase® is an exclusive blend of hemicellulase beta-glucanase and phytase that is designed to synergistically disrupt the fibrous nature of plant cell walls and release trapped nutrients from plant materials. Maxi-Health Research® is proud to provide you with our most advanced enzyme formula. Premium Enzymax® Complex is professionally formulated to provide you with the highest quality plant and microbial enzyme formula you need to live healthier happier lives.
