Description Usage Supplement Facts NESS™ Fat Digest (Formula 18) contains a wide-spectrum of digestive enzymes that help your body break down food during the digestion process. Formula 18 is specially formulated to support high-fat (and often low-carb) diets. It’s very important to make sure that the fats you eat are being properly digested.* A certain amount of fat is necessary in any diet‚ and for most of us‚ consuming sufficient amounts isn’t a problem. However‚ for some people‚ the issue isn’t whether they eat enough fat but whether that fat is being properly digested—their bodies may not be metabolizing enough fat‚ or aren’t metabolizing it an efficient way. Insufficient digestion of fats can lead to digestive problems‚ such as cramping and diarrhea. It can also lead to high blood pressure‚ plaque in your arteries‚ and other serious illnesses. For these reasons‚ it’s important to have the right balance of enzymes in your digestive system in order for your body to digest and absorb needed nutrients from the fat you eat.* The enzymes in Fat Digest include lipase‚ amylase‚ protease‚ glucoamylase‚ and cellulase. Lipase and amylase are both produced in the pancreas and secreted into the small intestine. Once there‚ lipase helps break down certain fats during the digestive process‚ while amylase breaks down starches. Protease is another enzyme‚ which breaks down proteins. Glucoamylase works to further break down starch into glucose‚ so it can then be used by your body for energy. Together‚ these enzymes help digest and absorb your food: whether it consists of fat‚ protein‚ or starch. This will result in a more efficient digestive tract and a healthier you. On the other hand‚ a deficiency in any of these enzymes can lead to the malabsorption of certain nutrients; it can also cause abdominal pain‚ diarrhea‚ and uncomfortable bowel movements.* *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
