Vital-Zymes Forte is a digestive enzyme replacement, providing a blend of microbial and plant enzymes and includes lactase, alpha-galactosidase and DPP-IV. These can be an effective and reliable treatment for various gastrointestinal concerns, like gas, bloating, IBS, and may be helpful in patients with gas-related symptoms.
When your body is functioning properly, it naturally produces digestive enzymes to help digestion by breaking down and absorbing nutrients. These digestive enzymes are naturally produced by the pancreas, which secretes a specific enzyme to break down each nutrient: amylases to break down carbs, lipases for fats, and proteases for proteins.
However, the body isn’t always able to produce enough to keep up. The result is discomfort in the form of bloating, gas, and digestive distress. Common digestive enzyme deficiencies include:
Lactase, which helps break down lactose, or the sugar found in milk
DPP-IV which facilitates the breakdown of the proteins gluten and casein
Alpha-galactosidase, which can help break down the carbohydrates found in legumes and beans
Taking a broad spectrum digestive enzyme like Vital-Zymes Forte ensures that you are obtaining nutrients from food while supporting digestive health allowing your body to function at its best.
