DuoZyme by Karuna is a digestive enzyme supplement that seeks to deliver necessary ingredients for both the gastric and the alkaline duodenal phases of digestion.
Karuna combines the digestive enzymes protease, amylase and lipase with other digestion-supportive ingredients to make its DuoZyme.
This full-range formula is designed to support both the gastric phase, with pepsin and hydrochloric acid, and the intestinal phase, with other important enzymes and substances. This promotes the acidification of gastric contents, the production of secretions by the liver and pancreas, the delivery of intact enzymes to the small intestine and a pepsin-supportive environment.
• DuoZyme contains the acidulants betaine HCl and glutamic HCl, which help acidify gastric contents, creating a favorable environment for the proteolytic action of pepsin.
• Pancreatin and ox bile extract, contained in pH-sensitive microspheres, supplement the natural secretions of the pancreas and liver, and promote the intestinal phase of digestion.
• pH-sensitive microspheres typically provide a more effective means for delivering intact enzymes to the small intestine to reduce malabsorption of macronutrients
