ZyMate is a multi-enzyme complex of alpha amylase, neutral protease, lipase and cellulase to aid the digestion of carbohydrates, proteins, lactose, fat and cellulose.
ZyMate – Forte is a multi-enzyme complex of alpha amylase, neutral protease, papain, lactase, lipase and cellulase to aid the digestion of carbohydrates, proteins, lactose, fat and cellulose.
ZyMate - Pro is a multi-enzyme complex of alpha amylase, lactase, lipase, acid protease, bromelain, papain and neutral protease to help digestion and tolerance of various milk proteins including Whey, casein and native milk protein.
ZyMate – Max is a multi-enzyme complex of alpha amylase, Glucoamylase, acid protease, neutral protease, bromelain, papain, lipase, lactase, and cellulase to aid in the digestion of carbohydrates, starches, proteins, fat, lactose (milk sugar) and cellulose (fiber).
BACKGROUND TO ENZYMES
Enzymes are biocatalysts which are vital for healthy living and well-being. There are over 1000 enzymes found in human body performing various metabolic activities. The absence or deficiency of any enzyme can have significant effect on human body. Enzymes responsible for digestion are secreted along the digestive tract to metabolise various nutrients including proteins, carbohydrates, fats obtained from food into their smaller building blocks and facilitates their absorption in the human body.
These digestive enzymes are mainly produced in pancreas, liver, gall bladder, small intestine, stomach and colon. Pancreatic enzymes are the most important among other enzymes and they assist breakdown of proteins into amino acids, fats into fatty acid and carbohydrates into simple sugars, in order to get absorbed into the blood stream. Some key human digestive enzymes include lipase, protease, amylase, cellulase, invertase, maltase, pectinase, lactase, pepsin and trypsin. These enzymes are normally produced in human gut however, in some cases these enzymes are not produced in human body due to some disorders. In such cases enzyme supplements help to digest food in patients with various pancreatic disorders, including cystic fibrosis, Shwachman-Diamond syndrome, chronic pancreatitis, pancreatic tumors. The treatment of pancreatic diseases involves dietary recommendations and pancreatic enzyme supplementation. According to a study, about 80% of patients can be managed by a combination of analgesics, dietary recommendations and pancreatic enzyme supplements, while 10%-15% need oral nutritional supplements, 5% need enteral tube feeding and around 1% require parenteral nutrition. Hence, enzyme supplements can be used to improve digestion and improve longevity for healthy individuals and patients with digestive problems.
