Nutrigest is a fully comprehensive aid to the digestive process containing hydrochloric acid (stomach acid), gastric (stomach) digestive enzymes, plus a combination of enzymes required for protein, carbohydrate and fat digestion in the small intestine. Hydrochloric acid (HCl) denatures dietary proteins and facilitates the digestive action of enzymes. HCl also stimulates the pancreas to secrete more digestive enzymes when released into the duodenum from the stomach. Pancreatin is combined with pancrelipase providing a mixture of pancreatic enzymes that help break down protein, fats and starches. Amylase digests fats and starches. Ox bile helps in the emulsification of dietary fats and subsequently improves absorption.
