Klaire Labs best-selling multi-enzyme formulation offers an unusually comprehensive range of plant/microbial-based enzymes, together with lysozyme, that work in concert to support normal enzyme activities such as digestion of foods and intestinal repair and maintenance mechanisms.* The broad-spectrum combination of enzymes in Vital-Zymes Complete supports the breakdown, absorption, and utilization of macronutrients from a wide spectrum of foods, including proteins and protein peptides, complex carbohydrates, disaccharides and sugars, lipids/fats, and vegetable fibers.* As such, Vital-Zymes Complete is an important dietary adjunct for individuals who seek to improve nutrient uptake, and for those with occasional indigestion.* It can also be used for individuals who wish to support a balanced microbiota and healthy inflammation metabolism.*
Attributes of Vital-Zymes Complete:
- Delivers a full complement of high-activity enzymes
- Contains highly purified enzymes to meet the needs of food-sensitive individuals
- Contains no porcine or other animal-derived enzymes
- Avoids fruit-derived enzymes (bromelain, papain, and kiwi) for improved tolerance by sensitive individuals
- Active across a broad range of pH conditions (pH of 2 to 10) for benefit throughout the entire intestinal tract
- Supplies a broad-spectrum of disaccharidases (lactase, maltase, sucrase/invertase, pullulanase, and isomaltase) to assist cleaving of sugars that may be fermented by organisms that shift the balance of microbiota*
- Assists protein breakdown, but avoids excessive amounts of proteases that may irritate GI tissues*
- Dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP-IV) activity supports optimal cleaving of casein and gluten and their exorphin peptides (casomorphin and gluteomorphin)*
- Supplies Serratia peptidase enzyme to support sensitive GI tissues from irritation and lysozyme for its unique lysing action on bacterial and yeast cell walls and broad immune support
Congenital Sucrase-Isomaltase Deficiency (CSID) is caused by a reduction in the function of the enzyme sucrase-isomaltase, a digestive enzyme that breaks down sucrose and sugars from starch. Sucrose is a “disaccharide,” two sugars linked together by a bond. Once inside the body, the disaccharide sucrose must be split into two monosaccharides, glucose and fructose in order to be absorbed from the small intestine. Without the enzyme necessary to convert sucrose into glucose and fructose, digestion and absorption cannot occur.
Disaccharidases are glycoside hydrolase enzymes found in the intestinal brush border that are responsible for the breakdown of disaccharides into monosaccharides. A congenital or acquired deficiency of these important enzymes results in an excess of carbohydrate substrate in the small bowel, which increases osmotic load leading to increased luminal fluid. Excessive fermentable substrate also increases gas production in the small bowel. The resultant small bowel distension can lead to bloating, nausea and diarrhea and often goes hand in hand with in patients thought to have irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
