Medical Benefits of Diastase and Pepsin Syrup
Diastase + Pepsin Syrup is prescribed for the treatment of digestive disorders like indigestion, heartburn, gas, and abdominal discomfort. The medicine is composed of two digestive enzymes, namely: Diastase and Pepsin.
Fungal diastase is a starch hydrolyzing or amylolytic enzyme that breaks down the starch into simple sugars (maltose) for easy digestion of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. Pepsin is a proteolytic enzyme (protein-digesting) that breaks down larger protein molecules into smaller proteins (amino acids). Thus, Diastase + Pepsin Syrup promotes the digestion of carbohydrates and proteins and helps absorb the intestine’s essential nutrients.
