Life Extension Extraordinary Enzymes is a dietary supplement which contains a dynamic blend of 12 enzymes that digest proteins, fats and fibre. It is composed of proteases, lipase and cellulase which are strong enzymes that support digestion by adjusting to different pH levels in the digestive system. One capsule applied before eating ensures digestive comfort, even after a heavy meal.

The body receives the nutrients thanks to the "breakdown" of the food consumed into elementary particles. This process is known as digestion, and many enzymes are needed for its proper conduction. Protein, vegetable fibres and fats are subjected to processes of breakdown into simpler molecules by using completely different enzymes.

Protease, trypsin, chymotrypsin are proteolitic enzymes responsible for the hydrolysis of peptide bonds of proteins. Lipase breaks down triglycerides into glycerol and fatty acids. Cellulase, hemicellulase, phytase, beta glucanase, pectinase and xylanase are enzymes which are not present in the human digestive tract and therefore we are not able to digest plant fibres (cellulose, hemicellulose, pectins). These compounds are multi-molecular carbohydrates which are present in the cell membranes of plants and are commonly referred to as dietary fibres.

A large amount of fibre reduces absorption and digestion of other nutrients (vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats, carbohydrates). Its breakdown allows, therefore, for increasing digestibility and absorption of the above mentioned components and contributes to better nutrition of the whole organism. For example, phytase will cause the breakdown of phytic bonds of phytic acid in plant foods.

Phytic acid reduces the absorption of iron, calcium, zinc, magnesium, manganese, potassium and sodium from the small intestine. Together with these elements, it forms complexes which are difficult to dissolve and hydrolyze in the human gastrointestinal tract. Consumption of foods rich in phytic acid may lead to deficiencies of these elements in the body system and consequently to serious diseases. Moreover, adverse effects of phytic acid cause difficulties in digestion and a decrease in the bioavailability of protein and starch.

The consumption of food, high-calorie diet/meals or fibre is often associated with unpleasant gastrointestinal symptoms (abdominal pain, bloating, gas, cramps and diarrhea). A lot of people use then the pharmaceuticals sold without a prescription which give only temporary relief but do not treat the cause of the problem.

These ailments can be caused by limited or poor digestion of food ingredients and lead to the improper absorption of nutrients necessary for proper health. The most common cause is the age-related decrease in the secretion of digestive enzymes. Fortunately, studies show that it is possible to solve this problem by supplementing digestive enzymes. Their supplementation can improve digestion, reduce stomach ailments, increase retention of nutrients and reduce blood glucose spikes after meal.

Unlike other enzyme supplements, Life Extension Extraordinary Enzymes does not contain amylase. What is the reason? Amylase breaks down starch into glucose, which is very quickly absorbed into the bloodstream. Moreover, the supplementation allows for the digestion of dietary fibre, which very often causes that many people avoid eating vegetables because of digestive discomfort.

Enzyme deficiencies
The lack of enzymes is mostly caused by damage to the organ or cells responsible for the production of enzymes. People most vulnerable to the impaired production or secretion of digestive enzymes are those who suffer from celiac disease, inflammatory bowel disease, pancreas, liver and bile ducts inflammations (acute and chronic). Another cause can be genetic defects that lead to enzyme synthesis disorders. It is very common that the secretion declines with age which also causes that the amount of digestive enzymes is too small for the proper functioning of the digestive system.

To sum it all up, Life Extension Extraordinary Enzymes is product that supports the very important process of food digestion and thus contributes to the improvement in the functioning of the entire body system. The multi-enzymatic formula facilitates optimal nutrient absorption, relieves digestive discomfort and reduces blood glucose spikes that may occur after meals rich in carbohydrates. The supplement is perfect for people who suffer from digestive enzymes deficiencies and for athletes forced to consume greater quantities of food.
