Digestive enzymes are produced throughout the gastrointestinal tract to help with the breakdown of large food molecules into smaller nutrients for absorption into the bloodstream. Digestive Aid contains hydrochloric acid (HCl) and pepsin enzymes that are involved in the digestion of protein. It also contains vitamins B1, B6 and zinc to support the body’s production of HCl, while other key ingredients (gamma oryzanol and fucoidan) soothe, support, and strengthen the protective stomach mucosal lining.
The stomach naturally produces hydrochloric acid to keep its contents acidic. This is important to provide the right conditions for effective digestion and for killing pathogenic bacteria present in food. It also allows Vitamin B12 to be extracted from the food we eat. However as we age, the amount of stomach acid produced decreases. Low stomach acid may play a role in the development of SIBO, lead to nutritional deficiencies and increase the risk of other gut disorders.
