Comprehensive Digestive Enzyme Support

Ultrazyme™ is Douglas Laboratories natural dietary supplement specifically formulated with bile and active digestive enzymes that act synergistically to assist in the healthy functioning of fat, protein and carbohydrate digestion.

Health Functions:
The pancreas supplies the major digestive enzymes that catalyze the breakdown of fats, carbohydrates and protein, so that the breakdown products can be absorbed in the upper small intestine. Although fat digestion starts in the mouth with salivary lipase,most triglycerides are digested by pancreatic lipase,which is secreted by the exocrine pancreas into the duodenum of the intestine. Pancreatic lipase cleavestriglycerides into monoglycerides and free fatty acids,which are efficiently absorbed in the upper small intestine.

Some carbohydrate digestion takes place in the mouth by salivary amylase, but pancreatic amylase is the major carbohydrate-digesting enzyme. It breaks down starches into maltose and maltotriose, whichare further hydrolyzed into glucose by thedisaccharidases of the mucosal cells and then absorbed.

Protein digestion is initiated in the stomach by pepsinand hydrochloric acid, which denature and divide large proteins into smaller polypeptides. The pancreatic proteinases, trypsin and chymotrypsi break down these polypeptides into free amino acids,and di- or tri-peptides, which are directly absorbed bythe intestinal mucosa.

Ultrazyme™ provides high levels of catalytically active pancreatic enzymes that are specific for fats,carbohydrates and proteins.

Bromelain acts to help prevent allergens from crossing the gastrointestinal tract, and assists in the breakdown of large macromolecular protein complexes. This reduces the chance that these complexes will leave the stomach untouched or inlarge fractions retaining their recognizable antigenic form that could pass through gastric or intestinal legions thereby inducing an allergenic response.
