Digestive enzyme therapy can be an important first step in restoring health for many underlying conditions. Jamieson Nutrisentials™ Digestive Enzymes provides a complete plant-source matrix for the digestion of protein, fat, carbohydrates, starch, dairy and fibre. The formula is fortified with calcium gluconate to neutralize excess acid, while a complex of peppermint leaf, chamomile and fennel calm an upset stomach.
Digestive enzymes help maintain optimal digestion and absorption by restoring natural enzyme levels. Nutriesentials™ also ease digestive complaints, including gas, heartburn and symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.
