Digestive enzymes assist in the breakdown of proteins, fats, carbohydrates and sugars. Including supplemental plant enzymes with meals provides 2 important benefits: plant enzymes can go to work immediately to start the digestive process and the body doesn’t have to take enzymes from other organs.
Gamma-Zyme is a soothing alternative for those wishing to add an enzyme supplement to their diet but also suffer from ulcers, gastritis, severe burning sensations, irritable bowel syndrome or intestinal lining damage. It contains a unique formulation of plant enzymes and herbs to help digest fats, starches, and fibers and soothe and restore damaged or irritated intestinal linings. Protease, the protein digesting enzyme, is excluded from this formula as it may cause temporary irritation or burning for those with gastrointestinal problems.
For anyone suffering from ulcers, gastritis, severe burning sensations, irritable bowel syndrome, or intestinal lining damage, proper digestion and absorption of nutrients can be especially difficult. 3 natural remedies that appear to help are gamma oryzanol, aloe vera & peppermint.
Gamma oryzanol has been shown in clinical studies to be effective as a remedy for several ailments including irritable bowel syndrome, gastritis, and duodenal and gastric ulcers caused by stress.
In the past Aloe Vera has been used to treat skin problems, but more recently it has been found to improve conditions in the digestive tract, stimulate the immune system, treat inflammations and speed up cell growth. It appears to have a soothing effect on gastritis and helps inhibit caustic bacteria which is a major cause of gastritis and conditions that lead to peptic ulcers.
Peppermint leaves, when taken with food, helps digestion and reduces the amount of gas produced by shortening the time food is in the stomach. It can help stomach muscles relax, soothe the lining of the colon, and help relieve diarrhea and spastic colon symptoms.
