Properties:

Digestin is a well-balanced combination of specific digestive enzymes that effectively promote complete digestion of dietary proteins, carbohydrates, fats and fibers. Digestin tablets provide the body with papain, the proteolytic enzyme, in addition to sanzyme 3500 which is a multienzyme complex containing mainly protease, amylase, lipase and cellulase. These enzymes act upon food contents of the gastrointestinal tract and catalyze their conversion into simpler and easily – digestible and absorbable components. They bring to completion the hydrolysis of proteins into peptones and small peptides; starch into dextrins and simpler sugars; fats into fatty acids and glycerol, and cause the disintegration of cellulose into absorbable matter. These properties collectively make Digestin tablets of the drug of choice when optimum digestive process is needed and in the cases of digestive enzyme deficiency leading to protein, carbohydrate or fat intolerance.
