Digestive enzymes are secreted into the digestive tract to break down food matter into its component nutrients. These can be absorbed across the gut wall into the bloodstream. If this enzyme system does not work effectively, optimal health cannot be maintained because of the failure to absorb the nutrients needed. Also, undigested food passing into the large intestine will be fermented by the resident bacteria, causing flatulence, bloating and diarrhoea.

Enzymes are proteins which catalyse reactions with a high degree of specificity and efficiency and they are present in all living organisms. As we age, our natural production of enzymes declines and it is recognised that during illness enzyme production can be significantly reduced.
Digestizyme provides a broad spectrum of plant-sourced enzymes, which digest protein, fat and carbohydrate. The advantage of plant-sourced enzymes is that quality control is assured and contamination is significantly reduced compared with animal sourced. Natural plant enzymes give high bioavailability and are readily acceptable to the digestive tract. Lamberts have chosen enzymes that are largely resistant to degradation caused by highly acidic conditions in the stomach so that they may reach the small intestine where most digestion takes place.
