- Helps digestion of high-fat meals or fish oil supplements
- Breaks down food triglycerides into short-chain fatty acids
- 1000 Total FIP Lipase Units
- Composed of 3 Different Lipases
- Small (#3) Sized Capsule
Lypazyme is a combination of 3 different lipase enzymes which help break down food triglycerides into short-chain fatty acids. Excellent for high-fat meals or when supplementing with fish oils and/or omega-3 products. High-fat diets such as the ketogenic diet can result in slower stomach emptying which produces bloating and discomfort. The acid-stable lipase enzymes in Lypazyme work in the stomach to begin the digestion of triglyceride fats much sooner.
Contraindications for Enzyme Supplementation
These enzymes should be used with care in cases of active stomach or duodenal ulcers, severe bowel inflammation (characterized by blood in stools), hemophilia and other bleeding disorders, or within a week of scheduled surgery. This product may not be appropriate for those with known allergies to Aspergillus enzyme proteins, though non-specific mold allergies do not necessarily preclude use of fungal enzymes. Consult your medical doctor for further advice, and err on the side of caution. Those with known anaphylactic allergic reactions to fungal proteins should NOT ingest fungal-derived enzymes.
