Organic 3 GutZyme Assist ~ Digestive Enzyme Supplement
120 Capsules ~ 2 caps per serving ~ 60 servings per bottle
What is GutZyme Assist and Who Needs It?
GutZyme Assist is a digestive supplement containing a potent blend of plant/microbial-based enzymes. This full-spectrum enzyme blend helps maintain maximal support of intestinal functioning, and helps those with sufficient HCL levels who want to maximize their absorption of proteins, fats, minerals and other nutrients.
GutZyme Assist contains all the same enzymes as GutZyme Restore, as well as additional enzymes to aid in the digestion of beans and carbohydrates. However, unlike GutZyme Restore, GutZyme Assist does not contain HCL or Pepsin.
Which Digestive Enzymes do both GutZyme formulas contain?
- Three types of Lipase ~ Maximize the absorption of healthy fats and oils
- Phytase ~ Increases mineral absorption and bioavailability
- Protease ~ Aids in proper digestion of protein
- Amylase ~ Breaks down starchy foods
- Lactase ~ Helps digest milk sugar
GutZyme Assist’s Additional Enzymes:
- Alpha-Galactosidase ~ Helps break down oligosaccharides and polysaccharides which are found in food that is typically more difficult to digest such as peanuts, lentils, beans, and cruciferous vegetables such as Brussel sprouts, broccoli and cauliflower
- Beta-Glucanase ~ Group of carbohydrate enzymes that breaks down glycosidic bonds within beta-glucan
- Glucoamylase ~ Helps break down starch that naturally occurs in most vegetables
- Invertase ~ Carbohydrate-digesting enzyme that splits sucrose (table sugar) into its component parts, fructose and glucose
- Maltase ~ Breaks down the disaccharide maltose into two glucose molecules making it more easily oxidized by the body for energy
What are the benefits of GutZyme Assist:
GutZyme Assist's blend of digestive enzymes has multiple benefits, most notable are it helps with digestion of proteins and promotes absorption of proteins and minerals, helping our body get more out of the food we eat. One other thing to note about the GutZyme Assist is the capsules can be opened and the contents poured into or onto food or directly into the mouth for consumption. So, if you have problems swallowing capsules, then this is the digestive enzyme for you.
Which GutZyme should you take?
GutZyme Assist is recommended for people with adequate levels of HCL or for people who consume a lot of legumes or cruciferous vegetables that are hard to digest. Also, if you have trouble swallowing pills, then this is the GutZyme for you. GutZyme Restore is recommended for people who need extra HCL in their diet and for people following a GAPS or Paleo diets or any diet that restricts carbohydrate consumption.
