DIGESTION IS THE PROCESS THAT USES MORE ENERGY IN OUR BODY
Among the many functions of our body, digestive enzymes’s production to extract nutrients from what we eat is one of the most complex and expensive of energy. It’s estimated that for the other bodily systems – immune, reproductive, respiratory, nervous, muscular – remains available only a portion of energy between 20% and 40%. For this reason can happen to feel tired after a normal lunch or after eat some particular foods.
THERE IS A NEW WAY TO RETURN TO DIGEST
WHY CHOOSE PROVÍDA® ENZYMES ?
Because all Provída® Enzyme are formulated using microbial enzymes, the only enzymes active throughout the digestive tract .
Because all supplements Provida ‘ contain higher active units than the other competitors, ensuring the effectiveness of the formulation.
Enzymes are naturally present in human body, they are responsible of all the metabolic functions, including digestion.
ANIMAL AND PLANT ENZYMES FUNGAL ENZYMES
There are many types of SUPPLEMENTS’ENZYMES from animal origin, from pigs for example, or from plant origin, such as Bromelain derived from pineapples or papain from papaya, and there are fungal enzymes, often derived from the fermentation of maltodextrins through a fungus called Aspergillus. All these categories of Enzymes are fully effective under optimal pH conditions; in the digestive tract the pH can range from very acidic to very alkaline in the stomach into the small intestine. The enzymes from animal origin have optimal activity in the alkaline pH environments, therefore most of the capsules or tablets of supplements of animal enzymes are coated with gastroresistant substances (or enteric) so as to be free to cross the acid environment of the gastric region, environment in which they would be destroyed. Conversely, most of the plant origin’s enzymes, are active in the environment of the stomach acid and becomes inactive (even if is not destroyed) in the presence of an alkaline pH. The fungal enzymes (also called microbial), instead, are naturally active within a broad pH range and can work throughout the digestive tract. More over they are effective at all temperatures found in the human body and especially in the digestive tract with a range starting at 30 degree to 60 when others enzymes remain effective from 45 or 50 degree to 60. For those reasons is always preferable to choose formulas based on microbial/fungine source, as PROVIDA.
| MEASURING THE ENZYMES
For correctly measure the amount of enzymes present in supplement’s enzymes and then to assess their effectiveness, it’s not necessary to start from the weight (often not for supplements expressed in milligrams) but must consider the “international unit of enzyme activity” .
The enzymes used in the formulas of Provída® and Provída®
Enzydoc® are evaluated under FCC (Food Chemical Codex) and
acronyms that follow each enzyme describe the international unit
of measure: Protease is measured in terms of effectiveness ie in HUT.
