Hepatica Digestive Enzymes + Probiotic is a supplement containing a combination of the most important digestive enzymes, such as amylase, protease, lipase, lactase and cellulase. Moreover, the product is enhanced with probiotic bacteria strain Bacillus coagulans GBI-30 6086. The product provides support for the process of food digestion and the proper functioning of the lower digestive tract.
Development, growth and mechanisms of the basic vital functions are determined by nutrition, that is, the provision of all necessary nutrients to the body system. It is often the case that it is impossible to immediately use the food provided from the outside because of its form and it must undergo mechanical and chemical treatment.
Digestion is a very complex process, in which the multi-particulate compounds are subjected to enzymatic hydrolysis and broken down into simple compounds, in order to be absorbed by the body system in the digestive tract. For this purpose, the body system needs digestive enzymes which, with the participation of water molecules, catalyze the decomposition of complex nutrients into basic organic compounds, such as amino acids, simple sugars, fatty acids and glycerol.
The major digestive enzymes are amylase, lipase, protease, lactase and cellulase. Amylases are responsible for the breakdown of glycosidic bonds in molecules of carbohydrates; lipase breaks down ester bonds of fats; proteases catalyze the hydrolysis of peptide bonds of proteins; lactase is responsible for the breakdown of lactose (milk sugar) into monosaccharides (galactose and glucose); cellulase helps to release glucose from cellulose contained in the dietary fibre.
Large amounts of dietary fibre, provided with diets rich in vegetables and fruits, reduce the absorption and digestion of other nutrients (vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats and carbohydrates). The human body system does not produce enzymes breaking down the cellulose bonds that occur in the dietary fibres. Cellulase allows for the digestion of fibre and the increase in digestibility and absorption of the above mentioned components, which contributes to a better nutrition of the whole organism.
Lactase deficiencies cause clinical symptoms, in the form of aqueous diarrhea, abdominal pain, gas and bloating. People suffering from this disorder must avoid consuming lactose, which is contained in dairy products. There are inborn and secondary deficiencies of this enzyme. The secondary deficiency is mostly caused by the diseases damaging peaks of the intestinal villi (rotavirus and bacterial infections, parasites, antibiotics, NSAIDs, malnutrition, mucoviscidosis and Crohn's disease). The inborn deficiency is caused by the declining with age lactase activity. In both cases, the supply of lactase in the form of enzymes allows for the consumption of dairy products without the fear of negative gastrointestinal ailments.
Enzyme deficiencies often result from damage to the organ or cells responsible for the production of these enzymes. People most vulnerable to the disorders of synthesis or secretion of digestive enzymes are those who suffer from coeliac disease, inflammatory bowel disease, pancreas, liver and bile ducts inflammations (acute and chronic). Equally often, the enzyme deficiency is caused by the decrease in secretory activity which results from ageing of the body system. In both cases, insufficient amount of digestive enzymes causes the disorder in the functioning of the digestive system, which can result in qualitative and quantitative deficiencies and unpleasant ailments (abdominal pain, bloating, gas, cramps or diarrhea). Studies demonstrated that the best solution to these problems is to supplement digestive enzymes in the form of a dietary supplement.
Probiotic bacteria strain Bacillus coagulans GBI-30 6086 shows well documented properties. The beneficial properties of this culture of positive for the human body system intestinal micro-organisms can include: supports in a variety of digestive problems, e.g. irritable bowel syndrome, reduction of symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and improvement in immune response during viral infections. Moreover, GBI-30 6086 is one of the most effective probiotics preventing post-antibiotic diarrhoea.
To sum it all up, Hepatica Digestive Enzymes + Probiotic is a dietary supplement designed for all people who suffer from digestive enzymes deficiencies and struggling with often recurring gastrointestinal ailments. The product is a perfect support for people with lactase deficiencies, an enzyme digesting milk sugar, and people using high-calorie diets and consuming large amounts of dietary fibre. An addition of high-quality probiotic bacteria promotes the functioning of the immune system.
The recommendations of the producer concern people eating customarily 3 meals a day. People who eat more meals should take 1 capsule with each of them, especially if these are foods containing lactose or high level of dietary fiber.

Bulking agent - cellulose, stabilizer - hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (capsule ingredient)
Amylase (diastase), belong to the group of digestive enzymes (from the group of hydrolases) that catalyse the decomposition of polysaccharides (starch and glycogen) into simple sugars. They are found in saliva, pancreatic juice secreted into the small intestine continuing the digestion. In nature, found in malt, cereal grains. Included in the dietary supplement in combination with the components decomposing milk sugar (lactose), lipases (enzymes that catalyse the hydrolysis decomposition of an ester bond of fat) and proteases (enzymes that catalyse the decomposition of peptide bonds, and are involved in the digestion of protein). Products containing lipase are recommended for active people using high carbohydrate diet and eating hearty meals.
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

Cellulase is an enzyme of the hydrolase class. It is responsible for catalysing the hydrolysis of β-1 4-glycosidic bonds between glucose molecules in cellulose (a building block for plant cell walls). This reaction leads to the formation of the disaccharide cellobiose which is converted into glucose.
The human body is not capable of synthesising cellulase. Because of that, dietary fibre is not digested and used as a source of energy. Nonetheless, it has a beneficial impact on health, is essential for maintaining normal digestive function and may prevent many diseases. Because of that, it must not be excluded from the diet.
In supplementation, cellulase is most frequently an ingredient of digestive enzyme blends. It can be also found in health-promoting supplements with vegetable and fruit extracts. It is recommended especially to persons who complain of digestive discomfort after consuming fibre-rich foods.
