VemoZyme® PAL is an enzyme based complex for dietary supplements containing protease, amylase and lipase activities:
  • To facilitate the digestive process
  • To break down protein into smaller molecules like peptides and amino acids
  • To break down fats into fatty acids and a glycerol molecule
  • To break down carbohydrates into simple sugars

Application:

VemoZyme® PAL is a proprietary enzyme blend for facilitating the digestive process. We need digestive enzymes, because our digestive system can only absorb nutrients, but not food directly.

The main role of these enzymes is to break down the food into nutrients. We need more than one digestive enzyme, because every enzyme is acting in different part of our digestive system.

  • Appearance

    Form – microgranule
    Colour – light beige to beige

  • Activity

    Protease, HUT U – min 95 000 HUT/g
    Amylase, SKB U – min 30 000 SKB/g
    Lipase, FIP U – min 20 000 FIP/g

  • Units of activity

    Protease – Proteolytic activity is expressed in hemoglobin units and one unit of activity (HUT) is expressed through the quantity of enzyme needed to release 1μg tyrosine per minute from hemoglobin at 40⁰C and pH 4.7

    Amylase – One unit of Amylase activity (U) is expressed through the quantity of enzyme needed to hydrolyze 1 g starch for 10 minutes at 30⁰C and pH 4.7; 1 U ~ 5 SKB

    Lipase – The enzyme activity is determinated by the FIP method. One unit of lipase activity finds expression in the enzyme quantity releasing 1 μ-equivalent of fatty acids per minute at the conditions of the analysis – T – 37⁰C and pH – 7.0

  • Dosage

    0.2 – 0.5 g/100 kg per day

    24 months

  • Storage

    Store in cool and dry conditions, avoid direct sunlight.

  • Packaging

    VemoZymе® PAL is available in 20 kg PE bags, placed in cartons.

Description:

What are proteases, lipases and amylases?

Proteases, lipases and amylases are three of the main digestive enzymes in the human organism. The main function of proteases is to break down protein into smaller molecules like peptides and amino acids. Lipases can break down fats into three fatty acids and a glycerol molecule, and amylases break down carbohydrates into simple sugars.

Proteases, lipases and amylases are produced in the salivary glands, pancreas, stomach and small intestine.

Why are digestive enzymes so important to us?

Amylase, which is found in the saliva (salivary amylase), starts the digestion of starch in the food. Amylase is resistant to the pH in the mouth, which is typically about 6.8 – very weakly acidic. Most digestive enzymes will denature, because they are sensitive to pH. There is another amylase, called pancreatic amylase, which completes digestion of carbohydrates and produces glucose.

Lipases have essential role in the digestion process. Lipases act mainly in the small intestine, where the fats are digested. The absorption of fatty acids is helped by the release of pancreatic lipase from the pancreas and bile from the liver. Another type lipase is lingual lipase, which can start the digestion of some fats in the mouth.

The three main proteases are pepsin, trypsin and chymotrypsin. Proteases work in the pancreas where they help the digestion of long protein chains into shorter fragments. Pepsin helps the beginning of protein digestion. Trypsin and chymotrypsin are made in the pancreas. They produce simple amino acids and complete the protein digestion. VemoZyme® PAL helps digestion and the cope with symptoms like swollen belly, stomach acid pain, stomach gas and difficulties with food absorption.
