NOW Dairy Digest Complete is an agent providing a complex of enzymes that increase digestive process efficacy. Thanks to an appropriately designed combination of enzymes of the protease and lipase groups with lactase, its activity is concentrated on enhancing the efficacy of endocrine dairy product digestion. The innovative formula of cellulose Veg Capsules is easy to use and prevents the discomfort that often accompanies the swallowing of capsules based on gelatine, which is used traditionally in capsule production.
Digestive enzymes – highly specific, usually protein, high-molecular biocatalysers that facilitate the digestion of food delivered to the organism from the outside. By reducing the amount of energy necessary to initiate a reaction needed for breaking down a specific bond in a molecule of a nutrient, they enable its fragmentation, that way making the absorption and use of given nutrients by the organism possible. The most important groups of digestive enzymes are:
- amylolytic enzymes (carbohydrases) that take part in carbohydrate digestion;
- lipolytic enzymes (esterases) that break down fat structures;
- proteolytic enzymes (proteases) that accelerate protein breakdown;
- nucleolytic enzymes (nucleases) that enable the breakdown of bonds located in structures based on nucleic acids.
Importance of digestive enzymes
The basic role of digestive enzymes is the acceleration of the breakdown of the complex nutrients that are delivered with food. The process is sometimes initiated as early as at the beginning of the digestive system, for example in the case of carbohydrates, and it continues throughout the subsequent parts of the gastrointestinal tract, breaking down molecules to the size possible for the organism to absorb and use. The mechanism ensures the right nutrition and, therefore, the survival of the organism. An efficiently working enzymatic apparatus makes it possible to eliminate the consequences of malnutrition and prevent many complications resulting from the deposition of too much undigested food in lower parts of the bowels.
Consequences of digestive enzyme deficiencies
The most important consequence of an inefficiently functioning endocrine system participating in digestive processes is the worsened management of components delivered with food. As a result, the amount of amino acids used for the formation of proteins inside the organism is reduced, the amount of carbohydrates and fats available as the basic reserve of energy necessary for biochemical processes decreases, the amount of fats essential for formative processes is reduced, and the difficulty of obtaining fat-soluble compounds increases, including polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamins D, E, and K.
Lack of proper nutrition of the organism caused by a low degree of nutrient digestion reduces the level of satiety after eating, and increases the feeling of tiredness that accompanies building component and energy precursor deficiencies. The condition also leads to increased irritability.
The reduced efficacy of nutrient breakdown increases the amount of food content deposited in lower parts of the gastrointestinal tract. As a result, fermentation and decay processes that take place in the bowel are increased, which can cause flatulence, discomfort, a bad mood, and when chronic, it can lead to colitis.
Significant threats caused by insufficient catalytic strength of digestive enzymes also include the increase in the number of allergens, like lactose or casein, whose untouched molecule structure has a negative effect on the health of a sensitive organism.
Some deficiencies in specific groups of enzymes can also cause constipation or the other extreme, diarrhoea, which can occur, for example, in the case of undigested fats.
Necessity of dairy product consumption
Dairy products are very nutritious dietary components. They provide enormous amounts of complete proteins with very high nutritious value and the necessary amounts of vitamins and other compounds, like EFA, which are essential for the development and later on, for the normal functioning of the organism. The amount of valuable components and the satisfactory taste of dairy products creates the necessity and desire to consume dairy products.
Dairy product digestion problems
A significant flaw of dairy products are some compounds, such as lactose or casein, whose excess or sometimes even sole presence can lead to intolerance or allergic reactions. The most common problem is caused by too high lactose levels in the diet – the substance can cause abdominal pains, flatulence, colic, or diarrhoea when not digested quickly enough.
Young and healthy people usually do not have that type of problems when consuming reasonable amounts of dairy products. However, the power of the enzymes that catalyse the breakdown of lactose, that is milk proteins, decreases naturally with age. A deterioration in digestion can also occur for other reasons, like disorders in the functioning of the pancreas or the liver, as well as fatigue. Sometimes the problem can be just the consumption of too much food from a given food product group, as it often happens in the case of athletes who want to satisfy their organisms’ extremely high demand for nutrients that increases with training intensity and dietary limitations.
Increasing the ability to digest milk components
The catalytic ability of the endocrine system used for digesting milk components can be successfully increased by the consumption of appropriate enzymes, especially proteases, lipases, and lactase. Thanks to that it is possible to use the desired components better and at the same time to eliminate the bad compounds, including lactose.
Proteases – hydrolases that catalyse peptide bond hydrolysis. By breaking down the bonds located between specific amino acids, they break down a complex protein molecule into its smaller components, that is peptides and single amino acids. Depending on the location of the bond that is to be broken down, there types that can be distinguished are endopeptidases, which break down bonds inside a cell, and exopeptidases, which break bonds on their outer parts. Digestion with the use of the enzymes is initiated in the stomach and continued in the small intestine.
Lipases – enzymes belonging to hydrolases that enable fat breakdown to smaller subunits. By attacking ester bonds located in acylglycerols, they lead to the splitting of fatty acids and glycerol. Fat breakdown takes place in the stomach only to a small degree. In the case of specific nutrients, the role of digestive enzymes becomes significant as late as in the small intestine.
Lactase – also called lactase-phlorizin hydrolase, it enables the breakdown of the β-1,4-glycoside bond located between D-galactose and D-glucose molecules forming the disaccharide called lactose. The enzyme only presents its full range of possibilities in the small intestine.
The efficacy of enzymes depends greatly on where they are obtained from. The enzymes produced with microbiological methods using Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus oryzae, and Candida rugosa are characterised by high production efficacy and the desired catalytic power. The fact has been recognised both in food industry, including dairy products, and in dietary supplements for people.
When choosing such preparations, it is good to pay attention to the amount of amylases, the enzymes able to break down starch and similar carbohydrates to single glucose molecules; the amount should be low or none. That will help to maintain the right digestion time of other carbohydrates consumed along with dairy products and prevent sudden glucose spikes in the blood after eating.
Comfortable capsule casing
Taking enzymatic preparations in order to improve the ability to digest the food consumed in terms of increasing the efficacy of nutrient management and reducing digestive discomfort should include the right selection of complementary components and the casing of capsules. A perfect solution is using the gelatine-free, cellulose casings. It helps to eliminate heartburn and nausea that often occur after taking a capsule produced with traditional methods, and the target group can include vegetarians and other people who do not eat meat.
NOW Dairy Digest Complete is an agent that constitutes a carefully selected combination of enzymes, including: proteases, lipases, and lactase, without amylase; the product allows the improvement of dairy product digestion without a greater effect on the breakdown time of carbohydrates other than lactose. By increasing the ability to digest dairy products, it helps to use important components delivered with them to the organism more efficiently and makes it possible to enjoy the taste of such products; at the same time, it eliminates the problems that occur in response to the consumption of some of its components, including lactose, in sensitive people. The enzymes present in the product are obtained with a microbiological method that ensures its high efficacy. The casing used in capsule production eliminates the digestive discomfort caused by gelatine casings, as well as enables people who avoid eating products of animal origin, including vegetarians, to use the preparation.
The product Dairy Digest Complete is a dietary supplement recommended for people with the intolerance of components found in dairy products. It is recommended to take a capsule about 15-20 minutes before a meal containing dairy.
People suffering from diabetes should be particularly cautious when using the supplement, as the breakdown of lactose to simple sugars and their subsequent absorption to the blood can lead to a sudden and violent glucose spike in the blood plasma.

Protease (proteinase, peptidase) is a proteolytic enzyme. It is responsible for the hydrolysis of peptide bonds between amino acids in proteins. Protease is released as a biologically inactive proenzyme which is activated in the gastrointestinal lumen.
Protease is not a single compound. It is a large group of 500 various proteases. They can be classified by e.g. the pH in which they are active (acid, neutral and basic) and catalytic mechanisms (serine, threonine, cysteine, spartic and glutamic proteases and metalloproteases).
The role of proteases in human life is not only restricted to digestive processes. They are also involved in the process of growth, maturation and ageing of the body. They play a major function in the growth and spread of pathogenic microorganisms and that is why protease inhibitors are effective in the treatment of many diseases.
In supplementation, proteases are used most frequently to promote the digestion of protein products. They are added to preparations with digestive enzyme blends or protein-rich supplements. What is more, these enzymes are a popular ingredient of formulations for combating the biofilm, formed by pathogenic bacteria in the body.
Lactase (a digestive enzyme) is involved in the digestion of milk sugar (lactose) and improving its digestibility, artificially derived from yeast. In the supplementation it is a component of a nutritional composition containing protein from milk (casein, whey), carbohydrates, meal replacements type of MRP and as an additive in the complexes of the amino acids, available at www.muscle-zone.pl
