Pepgas digestive syrup helps to digest complex sugar, fats and proteins.Gas in digestive tract can cause abdominal pain, discomfort, flatulence and burping. It helps people suffering from gluten intolerance and other food insensitivities. Also aids in digestion of potato, wheat, corn and rice starch.
Basic constituents of pepgas syrup:
Alpha Galactosidase: The extent to which we can break down starchy, hard-to-digest foods is relatively dependent upon the amount of alpha-galactosidase present.It helps us break down the polysaccharides and oligosaccharides found in foods that are typically more-challenging to digest such as peanuts, beans, lentils and cruciferous vegetables, such as cauliflower, cabbage, broccoli and Brussels sprouts and thus reduces intestinal gas.
Diastase: It acts as a catalyst in the breakdown of carbohydrates to transform it into an easily digestible form. It is known to aid the process of digestion and other gastric functions.
Pepsin: It is mainly used for patients suffering from indigestion. Pepsin also helps in breaking the proteins of the food into tiny bits and absorption of nutrients.
Lipase:Lipase helps your body absorb fats. It’s released by the pancreas, a long, flat gland between your stomach and spine.It catalyses the hydrolysis of fats and perform essential roles in digestion, transport and processing of dietary lipids in most, if not all, living organisms.
