Key features of Thorne’s Advanced Digestive Enzymes:
- Contains undiluted pepsin and pancreatin
- Does not contain lactose, which is often used to dilute pepsin and pancreatin
- Contains ox bile
The proteolytic enzymes hydrochloric acid (HCl) and pepsin are secreted in the stomach, while pancreatin, composed of amylase, lipase, and protease, is secreted from the pancreas, and bile is secreted from the liver and through the gallbladder. These enzymes are all essential for digestion and absorption of nutrients from the food we eat. By providing all of them, Advanced Digestive Enzymes offers a complete solution for digestive support.
