Enzymes in the digestive system play a vital role in overall health. They ensure proper breakdown, absorption, and utilization of nutrients from food. A deficiency in the natural production of digestive enzymes may be an underlying cause of gastrointestinal complaints, including occasional heartburn and acid discomfort.*
Zinc carnosine is included to optimize the mucosal lining of the stomach, acting as a buffer to gastric acid.* According to a recent clinical trial, researchers reported beneficial effects of zinc carnosine on gut integrity and repair with standard dosages of 37.5 mg daily. (2)
Enzymes such as Amylase, lipase and cellulase enzymes work to enhance carbohydrate, fat and plant cell wall digestion.*
Marshmallow Root is known for its ability to relieve irritation of the mucous membranes in the gastrointestinal tract and to help normalize mucous secretions.*(3)
