DigeZyme® is a multi-enzyme complex consisting of starch digesting enzymes called amylases, protein digesting enzymes called proteases and fat digesting enzymes called lipases. The composition also contains lactase, an enzyme useful for people suffering from lactose intolerance. The preparation is therefore a multi-functional digestive aid.
Unlike the commonly available enzyme products of animal origin, DigeZyme® is derived from the microbial fermentation of grain. This preparation is therefore free from the potential hazards of latent viruses, for example bovine spongiform encephalitis (BSE).
