Similase is a highly concentrated plant enzyme digestive formula that is stable and active from the acid environment of the stomach to the alkaline environment of the small intestine (pH2-12). Derived from natural sources, this formula is well tolerated in sensitive conditions and provides balanced support for the digestion of fats, carbohydrates and proteins.

|Additional||Features: Enzymes are necessary for the digestion of large molecule macronutrients (proteins, carbohydrates and fats) into small molecules that may be absorbed. Protease breaks down proteins into absorbable peptides and amino acids. Lipase breaks down triglycerides into absorbable free fatty acids and glyercol. Only monosaccharides can be absorbed by the intestine. Starches and dissacharides must be broken down into single sugar units before being absorbed. Amylase breaks down starch. Maltase, lactase and sucrase break down the dissacharides maltose (malt sugar), lactose (milk sugar) and sucrose (table sugar) into monosaccharides for absorption.|
