Phenols are present in all plant foods. Polyphenolic compounds such as flavonoids are antioxidant nutrients essential for health. Some individuals have sensitivity to phenols and experience difficulty digesting foods that contain them. Salicylate compounds found in food colorants and flavorings can also be molecularly similar to plant phenols, incurring a similar trigger. Since complete abstinence from phenolic compounds is not always possible, a phenol-targeting enzyme blend can provide digestive support.
Enzymedica offers CarbGest, an enzyme supplement formulated to support healthy phenol and carbohydrate digestion. CarbGest provides phenol-targeting enzymes such as xylanase to enhance the digestion of carbohydrates and the phenolic compounds in fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains and food additives. By aiding the digestion of phenol containing foods, the enzymes in CarbGest may enhance the availability and efficacy of these core antioxidants to the body. Support for Carbohydrate Rich Diets
The complex carbohydrates found in healthy foods such as vegetables are rich in minerals, vitamins and other nutrients necessary for optimal health. These carbohydrates provide support to every cell of the body, for healthy protein and fat metabolism, immunity, skin rejuvenation, detoxification, and bone growth.
The starch digesting enzyme amylase, commonly referred to as carbohydrase, is needed to break down and assimilate the carbohydrates in our diet. Our body naturally produces carbohydrase enzymes, and we can obtain amylase through our diet, from raw foods and dietary supplements. A carbohydrase enzyme blend like CarbGest may help maximize healthy carbohydrate digestion.
