This is a comprehensive blend of digestive enzymes to help relieve indigestion and support healthy digestion, which in turn can help us get the most out of the foods we eat and promote better health from their nutrients. It contains 9 different enzymes, including Bromelain, Pancreatin and Papain to optimize the breakdown of fats, carbohydrates and protein and nutrient availability, plus Ox Bile, which improves the breakdown of fats, which can be of great help to those with a gall bladder insufficiency. This is NOW's most potent digestive enzyme formulation, and has been designed to handle tougher digestive problems and larger or more complex meals.
