Description of Omega-Zyme (O-Zyme), 180 Caplets, Garden of Life
Garden of Life Omega-Zyme (Ω-Zyme)
- Digestive Enzyme Blend.
- 20 Vegetarian Digestive Enzymes Per Serving.
- Whole Food Dietary Supplement.
Ω-Zyme provides 20 different vegetarian digestive enzymes that help you process proteins, carbohydrates, fats and difficult-to-digest foods like broccoli, nuts, seeds and beans.
A great way to get the enzymes you need is to consume a diet high in "live" raw and fermented foods, and/or to supplement your diet with digestive enzymes such as those found in Ω-Zyme.
Ω-Zyme contains potent enzymes that support the digestion of a multitude of nutrients in the gastrointestinal tract, including:
- Protease blend of five proteolytic enzymes aids digestion and utilization of dietary proteins.
- Amylase digests starch.
- Lipase digests fats.
- Glucoamylase breaks down starch-like carbohydrates.
- Malt diastase (maltase) digests maltose based carbohydrates or malt found in grains.
- Invertase (sucrase) is an enzyme that breaks down sucrose into glucose and fructose .
- alpha-Galactosidase helps digestion of difficult-to-digest foods such as beans, legumes and cruciferous vegetables.
- Lactase digests the milk sugar lactose.
- Cellulase digests fiber cellulose into smaller units.
- Xylanase breaks down xylose, also called wood sugar.
- Pectinase breaks down carbohydrates such as pectin, found in the pulp of many fruits.
- Hemicellulase breaks down carbohydrates widely present in plant foods.
- Phytase breaks down phytic acid present in many difficult-to-digest grains and beans.
- Beta-glucanase breaks down bulky beta-glucan molecules into smaller units.
- Bromelain, derived from pineapple, breaks down a broad variety of proteins.
- Papain, derived from papaya, also digests proteins into peptides and amino acids.
