Digestion Booster | Makzyme Pro® Patented Enzyme Formula
Starting out on the keto journey?
Experiencing digestive upsets?
Many people often experience stomach pain and digestive issues when starting out on a Keto diet.
This is common as the ketogenic diet by definition tends to be higher in fat content, and can be tough on the digestive system. As the keto diet may consist of up to 75% fat, anybody that is used to having a lower fat diet can experience unpleasant gastrointestinal symptoms like nausea and diarrhea.
As well, although the ketogenic diet is only moderate in protein, it is often a larger amount than some people are used to which ultimately can cause digestive side-effects.
That's where a high quality Enzyme supplement like Zest Keto Enzyme Booster can help.
A digestive enzyme blend that contains enzymes that break down fats (lipases) and proteins (proteases) may help optimize digestion.
What's more, Proteolytic Enzymes, which are enzymes that help break down and digest protein, have been shown to reduce post-workout soreness, which can be a bonus for those who work out on a keto diet.
Lets explain in a bit more detail.
Firstly, it is important that the Enzymes ( and the probiotics that are also included in this formulation) can survive long enough through the stomach acids to get to the right place in the gut to be beneficial.
Enzymes are generally broken down into 3 broad categories:
- Fat digesting enzymes
- Protein digesting enzymes (known as Proteolytic Enzymes)
- Sugar (carb) digesting enzymes
Fat Digesting Enzymes
Lipases are water-soluble enzymes that act on insoluble substrates such as fat and oils. That means that they assist the body in breaking down the extra fat that may be consumed on a ketogenic diet. Fungal Lipase is a key ingredient in Zest Keto Digestion Booster.
Protein Digesting Enzymes
Known as Proteolytic enzymes, they help break proteins down into smaller protein fragments called peptides and amino acids. Fungal Protease and Papain (extracted from the raw fruit of the papaya plant) are both fat digesting ingredients in the Zest Keto formula.
Carb Digesting Enzymes
Although technically when on a keto diet carbs and sugar have been removed from the diet, this is not always 100% the case. So we have also included Fungal Lactase and Alpha Galactosidase as these are both effective in helping the gut to break down any carbs and sugars.
PLUS, to help keep the gut bacteria healthy we have also included 3 beneficial probiotic strains.
Lactobacillus acidophilus is a well known probiotic that can help restore the normal balance of intestinal bacteria. This product has been used for diarrhea and other stomach/intestinal problems.
Lactobacillus plantarum are known to stimulate your digestive system, fight off disease-causing bacteria, and help your body to produce vitamins. In addition, Lactobacillus plantarum is said to sharpen memory, enhance athletic performance, and promote weight loss.
This is a special "delivery system" capsule that is designed and patented to protect the enzymes and probiotics during the trip through the stomach.
