Nourex Professional® Digestive Enzyme

Available in 60 capsules. Made in New Zealand.​

Nourex Professional® Digestive Enzymes aids digestion by facilitating the breakdown and utilisation of fats, protein and carbohydrates. It also contains lactase to enhance the digestion of lactose.

The proteins, fats and carbohydrates that form the main building blocks of your diet can’t be absorbed and utilised by your body until they’re broken down into their component parts during digestion. This process is facilitated by the presence of several key enzymes, each of which acts on a specific type of ingested food to facilitate its breakdown and absorption by the body. Nourex Professional® Digestive Enzymes provides a broad spectrum of gastrointestinal enzymes to support these important processes and help maintain digestive health.

Each of the many enzymes in your body acts as a trigger (or ‘catalyst’) that prompts a specific chemical reaction to take place. In the digestive system, important enzymes and their functions include:

  • Protease, which triggers the break down of proteins into the amino acids your body needs for the maintenance of connective tissues such as muscle
  • Amylase, which breaks down carbohydrates and starches into more simple sugars like glucose that your body can use as an energy source
  • Lipase, which breaks down fat and triglycerides into compounds that are more readily metabolised by the body, such as free fatty acids and glycerol
  • Lactase, which breaks down lactose from milk. Lactase is produced in inadequate quantities by some people, resulting in digestive difficulties when they consume dairy products

The Nourex Professional® Digestive Enzymes formula contains active ingredients protease, amylase, lipase and lactase, along with herbs such as Ginger, which has traditionally been used in Western herbal medicine to support healthy digestion.

Adults take 1 capsule three times daily with food.
