Pan-Ox-5 by Douglas Laboratories is a comprehensive dietary enzyme supplement that is specially formulated for complete digestive support in the gastrointestinal tract, including both the stomach and small intestine.
- Supports proper digestive function
The pancreas secretes digestive enzymes that catalyze the breakdown of starches (carbohydrates), fats, and proteins for absorption in the small intestine. These enzymes include amylase, lipase, and protease. Pancreatic amylase is responsible for the digestion of starch into maltose and maltotriose, which are further hydrolyzed into glucose by the disaccharidases of the mucosal cells.
Dietary triglycerides are digested by action of lipases, which hydrolyze triglycerides into free fatty acids and monoglycerides. In addition, bile is secreted from the gallbladder to assist in emulsification and absorption of fats. Protein digestive enzymes, pancreatic proteases and pepsin from the stomach, break down peptides to form oligopeptides and free amino acids.
