What is Pure Nutrition Power Enzymes?
The primary benefits of supplementing with Power Enzymes include:
- Support healthy digestive enzyme balance
- Promote the breakdown of carbohydrates, fats, fiber and protein
- Soothe the gastrointestinal tract
- Enhance stomach acid production
- Bioavailable ingredients for maximal absorption
To ensure proper digestion and absorption of macronutrients:
Power Enzymes contains all of the major enzymes required for metabolizing fats, protein, and carbohydrates, including:
- Pancreatin – A mixture of digestive enzymes (lipase, amylase, and protease) that are normally made by cells of the pancreas.
- Lipase Complex – Lipases are the principal enzyme responsible for breaking down fats (triglycerides) that we eat. As we age, the function and activity of lipase enzymes tends to decrease, which has been shown in research to increase the risk of health complications like gallbladder flare-ups, obesity, and elevated blood triglycerides.
- Amylase Complex – Amylase is an enzyme that helps the body breakdown starch/carbohydrates into simple sugar (glucose). Amylase is especially important for supporting healthy digestive function as it promotes the complete digestion of carbohydrates in the small intestine. Research suggests that impaired amylase function can result in undigested carbohydrate fragments that initiate both intestinal and extra-intestinal immune responses, which may cause excessive inflammation.2
- Pepsin – Pepsin is the primary digestive enzymes present in the stomach, and it’s required for breaking down protein molecules into smaller peptides. When the body doesn’t produce sufficient pepsin, protein malabsorption can occur, resulting in lethargy, bloating, flatulence, and impaired muscle protein synthesis.3
- Ox Bile Extract – This provides key bile acids, especially cholic acid, which are necessary for digesting, emulsifying, and transporting fatty acids from food.
- Bromelain and Papain – These are two plant-derived proteolytic enzymes that help the body fully metabolize peptides into short-chain amino acids and isolated amino acids. Papain has even been shown to be a promising clinical intervention for helping patients overcome leaky gut syndrome, hypochlorhydria, and even gluten intolerance.4 Other evidence has shown that papain supplementation by athletes effectively reduced muscular aches and soreness they experienced after training.5
- Hemicellulase, Phytase, and Beta-Glucanase – These are necessary digestive enzymes for breaking down fibrous carbohydrates found in many whole grains, such as oats, barley, potatoes, and vegetables.
