Proprietary Enzyme Blend
Pancreatin for digestion:
Amylase: Breaks down starches into sugars to be utilized by the body as energy.
Lipase: Breaks down fats
Protease: An enzyme that begins the process of breaking down proteins for energy.
Papain for digestion: Papain is an enzyme present in papaya, a tropical fruit plant. The Papain enzyme is known for breaking down proteins (meat fibres) which is why you will find papain in meat tenderizing products.
Cellulase: is an enzyme that breaks down cellulose (major component of plant cell walls). Since humans do not produce cellulase, we can only partially break down cellulose through fermentation by the flora in the intestines which greatly reduces the nutrients we can utilize. As a result, in order to properly digest leafy greens, sprouts and herbs, we need to supplement Cellulase in our diet.
Ox Bile: is derived from oxen (bovine) and helps supplement the liver's normal production of bile.* Bile supports normal, healthy digestion of fats and vitamins A, D, E and K* while supporting proper lipase action and is an essential addition for maintaining healthy digestion.

Aloe Vera or "True Aloe" is cultivated as the standard source for assorted health benefits. while Aloe Vera may be more commonly known for its topical uses in various skin conditions from sunburns to eczema, the naturally occurring components of aloe vera gel can work just as well inside the body on the epithelial tissue there as it can for the skin externally.* Aloe works on membranes and surfaces and may help sooth the stomach during moments of distress.* In our Digest-Fuerte, Aloe Vera is used to help sooth the stomach discomfort associated with eating certain "stomach lining irritating" foods.*

Cinnamon has been used as early as 2000 BC and was highly prized as a gift fit for monarchs and even for a diety. German health authorities (Commission E) do approve of cinnamon bark for mild gastrointestinal spasms, stimulating appetite and relieving indigestion.* Cinnamon Bark Extract is used in our Digest-Fuerte to calm the stomach, help relieve nausea, as well as to help assist the body in maintaining healthy blood sugar levels during digestive process.*
