Megaplus Zymes (120 Capsules)
Multi-enzyme supplement for extensive digestive support

DESCRIPTION
Megaplus Zymes is a high-strength, comprehensive digestive enzyme formula that provides a wide range of microbial-derived enzymes to support and enhance digestive function. Megaplus Zymes capsules contain a broad spectrum of enzymes that facilitate more complete breakdown of proteins, polypeptides, starches, vegetable fiber, polysaccharides, disaccharides, and lipids (fats). These advanced digestive enzyme formulas provide a wide array of enzymes active across a broad pH range including:
• Amylases (amylase, alpha-amylase, and glucoamylase)
• Disaccharidases (lactase, sucrase/invertase, and maltase)
• Acid, alkaline, and neutral proteases
• Protease/peptidase complex with endopeptidase, exopeptidase, and dipeptidyl peptidase-IV activities
• Serratia peptidase

FUNCTIONS
Digestive enzymes break down food macronutrients, such as proteins, carbohydrates, and fats into smaller molecules for absorption by the intestines. These enzymes are secreted by salivary glands (alpha-amylase and lingual lipase), the stomach (pepsinogen, gelatinase, and gastric lipase), the pancreas (alpha-amylase, lipase, trypsinogen, and chymotrysinogen), and the small bowel (disaccharidases, intestinal lipase, and erepsin protease). Digestive enzymes are also present in raw foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables. Enzymes in raw foods are thought to work synergistically with the body’s endogenous digestive enzymes to more completely digest food carbohydrates and other macronutrients. This action is lost, however, when foods are cooked or heat processed, as this destroys the natural catalytic activity of food digestive enzymes.

Enzyme supplementation supports healthy digestion and may therefore alleviate occasional abdominal discomfort, bloating, gas, indigestion, or loose stools while supporting nutrient absorption.† Incompletely digested food in the gut may putrefy and produce irritating substances that affect intestinal mucosal integrity and gut permeability, systemic immune function, and overall energy. Children with dyspepsia typically exhibit low activity of duodenal maltase-glucoamylase and/or disaccharidases. Supplementing the diet with microbialderived digestive enzymes can assist the complete digestion of food components, promote normal nutrient absorption, and reduce the number of large, immunologically active molecules that can leak through the intestinal mucosa lining if permeability is not optimal.

ATTRIBUTES OF MEGAPLUS ZYMES

  • Delivers a full complement of high-activity enzymes 
  • Contains highly purified enzymes to meet the needs of food-sensitive individuals 
  • Contains no porcine or other animal-derived enzymes 
  • Avoids fruit-derived enzymes (bromelain, papain, and kiwi) for improved tolerance by sensitive individuals 
  • Active across a broad range of pH conditions (pH of 2 to 10) for benefit throughout the entire intestinal tract 
  • Supplies a broad-spectrum of disaccharidases (lactase, maltase, sucrase/invertase, pullulanase, and isomaltase) to assist cleaving of sugars that may be fermented by organisms that shift the balance of microbiota
  • Assists protein breakdown, but avoids excessive amounts of proteases that may irritate GI tissues
  • Dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP-IV) activity supports optimal cleaving of casein and gluten and their exorphin peptides (casomorphin and gluteomorphin)
  • Supplies Serratia peptidase enzyme to support sensitive GI tissues from irritation and lysozyme for its unique lysing action on bacterial and yeast cell walls and broad immune support
