Product Information

  • Supports absorption and utilization of important nutrients
  • Supports normal digestion
  • Provides enzymes that promote absorption of nutrients
  • Supports normal digestion of grains (gluten) and dairy (casein)
  • Supports a healthy digestive tract
  • Supports normal growth of intestinal cells
  • Promotes stomach comfort
  • Promotes bowel regularity

Children in need of neurological, digestive, or metabolic support often need extra digestive support. Might-A-Mins Spectrum Isotonix Digestive Enzymes promotes stomach comfort and bowel regularity in children by enhancing enzymatic breakdown of food. The enzymes in this product work to cleave proteins during digestion, making them smaller and easier to digest. Not only does this promote normal digestion and absorption of nutrients, it also promotes bowel regularity.*

 

Another benefit of Might-A-Mins Spectrum Isotonix Digestive Enzymes is that it is delivered in an isotonic solution. Isotonic solutions bear the same chemical resemblance to blood and tears allowing for superior delivery and complete absorption.

 

Understanding Digestion
Proper digestion is essential for the body to utilize food for use by cells and tissues. Enzymes are responsible for the breakdown of food into substances that can be used to provide energy to the body. In addition to the physical discomfort caused by poor digestion, undigested food in the gastrointestinal tract serve as fuel to intestinal microbes, causing them to overpopulate and ferment. These fermented microbes lower the pH of the colon and increase bacterial toxins in the gut. Supplementation with digestive enzymes provides the body with the additional support it needs for proper digestion.

 

Poor digestion goes beyond abdominal discomfort. There is a proposed connection between the function of the digestive system and the brain. Research suggests that promoting normal digestion may in turn support physical health.

Ingredients

DigeZyme® 50 mg

DigeZyme® is a multienzyme complex composed mainly of amylases (starch hydrolyzing enzymes), proteases (protein hydrolyzing enzymes) and lipases (lipid hydrolyzing enzymes). These digestive enzymes collectively support the breakdown of complex macromolecules into energy sources and promote the release of the nutrient content from the foods we eat. The digestive system naturally produces digestive enzymes. DigeZyme supplements the gastrointestinal tract with enzymes to adequately support the body’s ability to digest food. In addition to the amylases, proteases, and lipases, DigeZyme contains two additional digestive enzymes including lactase (lactose hydrolyzing enzyme) and cellulase (cellulose hydrolyzing enzyme). Might-A-Mins Spectrum Isotonix Digestive Enzymes supports the absorption and utilization of important nutrients and provides enzymes that promote the absorption of nutrients, especially in children who need digestive support.*

 

Sucrase (Invertase) 200 SU

Sucrase is a digestive enzyme secreted by the villi of the epithelium in the small intestine that supports the hydrolysis of sucrose, also known as table sugar, into glucose and fructose. Glucose and fructose can then enter the blood stream and be used for energy. The source of sucrase in this product is from food.

 

Maltase 75 MWU

Maltase is another digestive enzyme produced by the villi of the epithelium in the small intestine. It promotes the hydrolyzation of the disaccharide maltose into two monosaccharide glucose molecules. The source of maltase in this product is from food.

 

Papain 1,500,000 FCC

Papain is a sulfhydryl cysteine protease produced naturally in papaya fruit. It can be found naturally as a zymogen, or pre-enzyme, that is activated upon exposure to cysteine residues found in proteins. It has been shown to provide better support than other proteases due to the zymogen nature of the enzyme. Papain has been used traditionally to support digestion of tough animal meat fibers. Because papain is not chemically altered during its proteolytic activity, the enzyme is able to react multiple times per enzyme.

 

Bromelain 1,024,000 FCC

Bromelain is a mixture of enzymes, primarily proteases, found in the pumice and stems of pineapple. It is one of the few enzyme extracts shown to support the break down of casein, the major protein found in milk. Bromelain supports normal digestion of grains (gluten) and dairy (casein) in children who need digestive support.

 

Caso-Glut SP 500 5,000 U

Caso-Glut is a unique enzyme that supports the normal breakdown of proline-containing proteins such as casein and gluten. Children who need digestive support may benefit from taking Might-A-Mins Spectrum Isotonix Digestive Enzymes because it supports the normal digestion of grains (gluten) and dairy (casein).*

 

Kiwi Proteases (Actinidin) 150 IU

Kiwi fruit is rich in the protease actinidin which supports the body’s normal ability to degrade cysteine residues in proteins. Proteolytic activity on cysteine amino acids promotes the liberation of the sulfhydryl groups from proteins.

 

Glutamine 333 mg

Glutamine is a conditionally essential amino acid, meaning that the body can synthesize glutamine, but certain conditions can require more glutamine than the body can produce. It is involved in more biological processes than any other amino acid. Glutamine serves as a source of energy for the enterocytes lining the gastrointestinal tract, as well as some immune cells (intraepithelial lymphocytes, IgA plasma cells and goblet cells, which are epithelial in nature and secrete mucin). Glutamine has been shown to support the normal proliferation of enterocytes leading to preservation of the villi barrier function of the small intestine. Scientists have discovered that glutamine can support the health of the gastrointestinal lining. Children who need digestive support may benefit from taking Might-A-Mins Spectrum Isotonix Digestive Enzymes because of its ability to support normal growth of intestinal cells and promote stomach comfort.*

    Comments about Might-A-Mins® Spectrum Isotonix® Digestive Enzymes:

    This product is supposed to be for children but the taste is terrible. My 4yr old would rather drink the enzymes for adults than try to choke down this. Will use it myself just to not waste the overpriced $55.00

    This product is fabulous for an adult (me) who suffers from Fibromyalgia. A lot of my pain comes from my digestion. Did not know that until taking this product and reducing my pain. My nails are finally getting stronger and not so brittle.

    Good taste, but over priced

    By Joan

    from Minneapolis, MN

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Might-A-Mins® Spectrum Isotonix® Digestive Enzymes:

    This product has a good taste. Easy for the kids to take it. I have never found another digestive enzymes that the young kids can take it so easily. However, compare with other brand's digestive enzymes, this one is way over priced. I tried a different brand of enzyme for my kids, and it works well. The price is much lower.
