Hydro-Zyme x 90 Tablets
Hydro-Zyme™ provides digestive support via supplemental Betaine hydrochloride, Pepsin, Pancreatin, along with other known synergists. It may be considered when the need for supplemental hydrochloric acid and/or Pancreatin are indicated.
Good health depends on adequate digestion. From a nutritional point of view, the level or quality of health can be traced to the level of digestive functioning.
The stomach produces a variety of substances that promote digestion and assimilation; gastric juice contains hydrochloric acid and pepsinogens (precursors of the family of proteolytic enzymes called pepsins).
Hydrochloric acid (HCl) is a strong mineral acid which functions to maintain gastric pH between 1.5 and 2.5.
This acidity serves three important roles; low pH kills microorganisms in food, it activates pepsinogen, and it denatures proteins, making them more accessible to proteolytic degradation.
While impaired digestion may result from mechanical means, such as improperly chewed food, it is far more likely to be the result of poor diet, nutritional deficiency (as a direct result of antacids and similar medications), or inadequate HCl production.
Compounding this decline, the incidence of low stomach acid increases with age. Studies estimate it impacts 30-60% of people over the age of 50. Among other things, functional deficits of HCl have been associated with gas, bloating, indigestion, malodorous breath and sweat excretions, anaemias resulting from nutrient deficiency, leaky gut, food allergies, joint inflammation, hair loss, and environmental sensitivities.
