Enzymes are important for the body's proper absorption and utilization of food. Over time, the body's ability to make certain enzymes reduces as part of the natural aging process. Many scientists now believe that maintaining normal levels of key enzymes is important to maintaining overall health. Enzymes are responsible for every activity of life. Digestive and metabolic are the two primary classifications of enzymes within the body. Proteases (aids in digesting protein), amylases (aids in digesting carbohydrates), and lipases (aids in digesting fats) are the three primary digestive enzymes, which function as the biological catalyst to breaking down food. In today's world of processed and fast foods, the body must work harder to break down food and absorb the nutrients. Poor eating habits, such as improper or inadequate chewing and eating on the run contribute to reduced levels of digestive enzymes. In addition to a reduction in essential enzymes, poor eating habits, some medications and illness deplete the body's probiotics, which are necessary for maintaining a healthy digestive tract and promoting a healthy immune system. Isotonix® Digestive Enzyme Formula with Probiotics is an isotonic-capable food supplement that is made from a combination of DigeZyme®, a blend of amylase, protease, cellulase, lactase, and lipase, and Lactospore®, the probiotic Lactobacillus sporogenes, and potassium, magnesium, maltase and sucrase, designed to replenish essential digestive enzymes and probiotics, contributing to good digestive health. Isotonix Digestive Enzyme Formula helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels, promotes digestion and absorption of nutrients, supports a healthy digestive tract, supports a healthy immune system and may help ease occasional stomach upset. DigeZyme® is a multi-enzyme complex consisting mainly of amylase (starch hydrolyzing enzyme), protease (protein hydrolyzing enzyme) and lipase (fat hydrolyzing enzymes). In addition to these, it also contains cellulase (that hydrolyzes cellulose) and lactase (that hydrolyzes lactose). The enzymes in this complex are of microbial origin (fungal amylase, lipase, lactase, cellulase; and a bacterial neutral protease). The product is therefore entirely of non-animal origin. Lactospore®, a preparation containing viable spores of L. sporogenes, L. sporogenes preparations have been used in successful clinical trials in the management of gastrointestinal issues, mild lactose intolerance and supporting healthy immune functions.
