Your pancreas supplies the major digestive enzymes that catalyze the breakdown of fats, carbohydrates, and protein so that the breakdown products can be absorbed in the upper small intestine. Although fat digestion starts in the mouth with salivary lipase, most triglycerides (broken down fats) are digested by digestive enzymes from your pancreas. Broken down fats are then absorbed your the upper small intestine.
Some carbohydrate digestion takes place in the mouth via salivary amylase, but pancreatic amylase is the major carbohydrate-digesting enzyme. It breaks down starches and complex carbohydrates into glucose for absorption.
Protein digestion is initiated in the stomach by your stomach acid and stomach digestive enzymes. The addition of betaine in this formulation helps existing stomach acid better digest proteins as they enter the stomach.
Bromelain acts to help prevent allergens from crossing the gastrointestinal tract and assists in the breakdown of large protein complexes. This reduces the chance that these complexes will leave the stomach with minimal digestion or still large in size thereby inducing an allergenic response.
