These advanced digestive enzyme formulations provide a wide array of enzymes active across a broad pH range (2 to 12) including amylases (amylase, alpha-amylase andglucoamylase), disaccharidases (lactase, sucrase/invertase and maltase), acid, alkaline and neutralproteases, protease/peptidase complex with endopeptidase, exopeptidase and dipeptidyl peptidase-IVactivities, Serratia peptidase, pullulanase, cellulase, phytase, and lipase. Vital-Zymes Complete includesthe antimicrobial enzyme lysozyme, normally found in human saliva, tears, and breast milk.
It is provided in a highly purified form derived from hen egg whites. Vital-Zymes Chewable does not contain lysozymethereby providing a choice for those individuals with allergies to hen eggs or who wish to avoid animal-derived materials. The specific combination and potencies of enzymes in Vital-Zymes Complete and Vital-Zymes Chewable are intended to enable more complete breakdown of casein, gluten, lipids,disaccharides, and carbohydrates compared to generally available digestive enzyme supplements.Vital-Zymes Complete supplies purified enzymes in a base of cellulose encapsulated in two-piece Kosher-certified vegetarian capsules.
A small amount of L-leucine, a naturally occurring amino acid, is usedas an encapsulation aid for Vital-Zymes Complete. Vital-Zymes Chewable supplies purified enzymes ina base of cellulose. Stearic acid and silicon dioxide are used as tableting aids. Xylitol, mannitol, and naturalcherry flavor enhance the taste. No porcine, bovine or other animal-derived digestive enzymes are used.Fruit-derived enzymes, such as bromelain or papain, are avoided to maximize tolerance by phenol sensitiveindividuals.
