90 capsules: High-strength plant digestive enzymes
Optimal Digestive Enzymes
Optimal Digestive Enzymes is a high-strength supplement which combines a broad-spectrum range of plant-derived digestive enzymes with carminative, anti-spasmodic and gut-soothing herbs. A unique blend to aid the digestive system naturally and healthily.
Digestive enzymes are important because they enable us to break down proteins, carbohydrates and fats into their raw components to make the nutrients available for absorption and utilisation.
Each person has a finite reserve of enzymes, which can be in short supply during times of stress, illness or as we get older. Over time, poor digestion can lead to nutrients malnutrition and a range of ailments.
As recommended by naturopath Max Tomlinson in Marie Claire magazine for bloating and digestion.
