Supports optimum digestion of food for proper nutrient absorption and digestive
BioCore® Optimum is a comprehensive enzyme formula designed to support the
proper digestion of foods.
Digestive enzymes, which are naturally produced by the body and also obtained
from foods, are essential to the breakdown of protein, carbohydrates and fats.
Without them, even the most nutritious foods would not be of use to the body, as
the vitamins and minerals they contain would not be properly absorbed. Foods
would also move slowly through the digestive tract, resulting in a number of
potential gastrointestinal discomforts.
BioCore® Optimum contains a variety of non-animal-derived digestive
enzymes—including proteases (which act on proteins), amylases (which act on
starches) and lipase (which acts on fats)—to encourage proper digestion of
foods. When taken with meals, it promotes healthy digestion and enhanced
nutrient absorption. It may also contribute to improved elimination, thereby
promoting colon and intestinal health.
As a dietary supplement, take 1 vegetarian capsule with each meal, as needed, or
as directed by a physican.
Other Ingredients: Vegetable cellulose, rice bran, maltodextrin and water.
