    NUTRIGEN ORANGE
    (Multi Enzyme)
    Food Supplement

    DESCRIPTION

    Nutrigen Orange (Multi Enzyme) contains multi enzymes that support a healthy digestive system and possess anti-inflammatory property. It also adds more fibers to your diet to refresh your body and improve overall well-being.

    In digestion, enzymes aid in breaking down nutrients from foods that become the building blocks for cell growth and regeneration. Nutrigen Orange (Multi Enzyme) provides a unique blend of specific enzymes and helps break down various types of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins to assist in converting foods into useful nutrients for the body.

    INGREDIENTS

    Each 2g powder in sachet contains orange powder, pineapple powder, papaya powder, premix enzyme (amylase, bromelain, cellulase, diastase, invertase, lastase, lipase, pectinase and protease), fructo-oligosaccharide, beta-glucan from brewer's yeast, apple cider vinegar, orange flavour.

    BENEFITS AND RESEARCH

    Human bodies need balanced and sufficient levels of active enzymes for many bodily functions, including digestion. There are naturally occurring enzymes in humans and in plants, but the enzymes are susceptible to deactivation or damage by many factors, including pesticides, pollution, cooking processes, irradiation, and chemical additives. Nutrigen Orange (Multi Enzyme) helps to supplement the enzyme supply to help human's digestive system breaking down dietary fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. The human body relies on variety of enzymes at sufficient levels to assist in many important body functions, including growth, blood coagulation, reproduction, breathing, digestion, and other functions.

    Function of each enzyme in Nutrigen Orange (Multi Enzyme) is listed below:

    Enzyme Function
    Amylase breaks down carbohydrates, starches and sugars found in grains, rice, potatoes, fruits, vegetables, beans, herbs, snack foods
    Bromelain a protein-digesting (proteolytic) enzyme complex found in the fruit and, in higher concentrations, in the stem of the pineapple; able to hydrolyze or break down a wide variety of protein types in a range of both acid and alkaline environments
    Cellulase breaks down food fiber (cellulose) found in fruits and vegetables
    Diastase transforms starch into maltose and subsequently converts it into glucose
    Invertase breaks down white and simple sugar (fructose and fruit sugar)
    Lactase breaks down lactose, a simple sugar, found in milk sugars (milk products)
    Lipase breaks down fats found in butter, cheese, meat, dietary fats and oils, vitamins A, D, E, and K
    Pectinase breaks down pectin, a polysaccharide found in plant cell walls. Found in many fruits and vegetables
    Protease breaks down protein found in meats, fish, poultry, grains, nuts, gluten, milk proteins (caseins)

    The fruit's powders used in Nutrigen Orange (Multi Enzyme) are reported to possess anti-inflammatory effects. The consumption of orange juice appears to mediate the inflammatory response in plasma level, and such anti-inflammatory effect could be attributed to the flavonoid compounds in orange.

    Pineapple contains bromelain, a proteolytic enzyme that has been demonstrated to show anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties and may provide a safer alternative or adjunctive treatment for osteoarthritis. Experimental evidence suggests that bromelain's anti-inflammatory action is mediated through the following factors:

    (i)
    by increasing serum fibrinolytic activity, decreasing plasma fibrinogen and bradykinin levels (that reduce the vascular permeability), and thus, reducing oedema and pain;
    (ii)
    by mediating prostaglandin levels (by decreasing levels of PGE 2 and thromboxane A2);
    (iii)
    via modulation of certain immune cell surface adhesion molecules that have a role in the pathogenesis of arthritis.

    Studies on papaya extracts and papaya-associated phytochemicals have been shown to possess anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory properties.

    SUGGESTED USAGE

    As a food supplement, take one 2g powder in sachet once a day with food.

    SAFETY AND WARNINGS

    Nutrigen Orange (Multi Enzyme) is generally well-tolerated and not known to be associated with any significant side effects or toxicity. As with any dietary supplement, some gastrointestinal discomfort may be experienced.
