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
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.

No upper limit has been established for oral enzyme supplementation. Animal studies indicate that extremely large doses of enzymes may be ingested without toxicity or ill effect. No upper limit has been established for lipase enzyme dosing. Recommended dosing is one (1) capsule per meal but two (2) or three (3) capsules may be taken if a meal is higher in fat.
Frequently Asked Questions
How exactly do lipase enzymes work?
Lipase works by clipping off the long-chain fatty acids connected to a glycerol ?backbone? that comprises the structure of triglyceride lipids. Removing the fatty acids from the glycerol enables better processing of the fatty acid chains into short-chain fatty acids.
Will Lypazyme help me lose weight?
No. Lypazyme only breaks down triglycerides so that normal processing of healthy fats can occur.
