Designed to jump start digestion in the upper stomach, BioCore® Optimum Complete synergistically works with the body’s enzymes to help ensure nutrient availability. The enzymes in this comprehensive formulation have demonstrative digestive power via advanced in vitro laboratory methods.
Nearly 70 million Americans are afflicted with digestive problems, making digestion a top health concern. Healthy digestion is key to a properly functioning immune system, maximizing your energy levels, and enhancing nutrient uptake from the food you consume.
Many people do not produce enough enzymes to fully digest the foods they eat. Age, stress, digestive disorders and certain medications can all interfere with the body’s enzyme production, making digestion more difficult. Research shows that supplemental enzymes may be beneficial for a variety of digestive problems. They can also increase nutrient utilization and are the key to keeping the digestive tract running smoothly.
Protease (21,000 HUT)
Protease (4,000 PC)
Protease (50 SAPU)
- Ensures the highest degree of protein breakdown with a mixture of acid, neutral and alkaline proteases which are effective through a wide range of pH levels, working through all portions of the digestive tract
Amylase (3,500 DU)
Glucoamylase (9 AGU)
- Allows digestion of carbohydrates during their transit through the gastrointestinal tract. The amylase hydrolyzes the starchy foods and liberates polysaccharides and maltose; the glucoamylase further hydrolyses polysaccharides producing glucose.
Alpha-galactosidase (150 GalU)
- Assists in breaking down certain polysaccharides and carbohydrates generally found in beans and legumes. When these types of carbohydrates are not properly broken down, the result can be excessive gas formation.
Lactase (1,000 ALU)
- Breaks down lactose (a disaccharide) into glucose and galactose. Lack of this enzyme may result in adverse reactions to milk and other dairy products — often called lactose intolerance.
Invertase (400 SU)
- Helps in the digestion of refined sugars that are common in modern diets by splitting sucrose into its component sugars, glucose and fructose, so they can be utilized.
Lipase (500 FIP)
- Assists in the breakdown of fats and lipids which plays an important role in the absorption of fat-soluble nutrients including vitamins A, D, E and K.
Acid Maltase (14 MaltU)
- hydrolyze the alpha 1,4 and 1,6 glucosidic bonds in starch, glycogen and other polysaccharides.
Peptidase (2 AP)
- Helps to digest protein producing amino acids that are important building blocks in the human body. The amino acids are used to build muscles, metabolic enzymes, neurotransmitters and many other essential biochemicals.
