Food supplements with vegetable enzymes and herbs that support digestion. Artichoke leaf extract helps support digestion, contributes to the normal function of the intestinal tract and to intestinal comfort. Lactase enzyme improves lactose breakdown in individuals who have problems breaking down lactose. Also contains the enzymes amylase, protease, lipase and cellulase.

Digestive enzymes

Digestive enzymes are very important and are needed for the body to be able to break down the food we eat and then assimilate all the nutrients found in the diet. The function of the digestive enzymes already starts in the saliva of the mouth and then continues in the stomach and further down into the intestine. Different types of enzymes work in different parts of the body, while different nutrients require different enzymes for their breakdown and absorption.

Different enzymes have different tasks

Poor digestion can cause unpleasant symptoms such as gas, stomach cramps, bloating and diarrhoea. A supplement of vegetable digestive enzymes, together with dietary fiber and extracts from fruits with beneficial effects on digestion, can facilitate the body's ability to break down food and thereby contribute to normal stomach and intestinal function. Enzymes are usually grouped according to their function:

• Amylase breaks down carbohydrates

• Protease breaks down proteins

• Lipas breaks down fats

• Cellulase breaks down cellulose (fibers)

• Lactase breaks down lactose (milk sugar).

Enzymes are not only found in the body but also in foods such as papaya, kiwi and pineapple. Elixir Enzymes contain a combination of different protease enzymes extracted from these fruits.


Artichoke is one of several well-known herbs with a positive effect on digestion. It does not contain enzymes but instead seems to stimulate the body's own production of digestive enzymes. Artichoke leaf extract helps support digestion, contributes to the normal functioning of the intestinal tract and contributes to intestinal comfort.


If you experience problems with your stomach in connection with eating food, a simple tip is to think about chewing your food properly. It may sound obvious but many of us eat fast and "on the fly", we are stressed and may not sit down calmly with our meal. Chewing the food calmly gives the stomach much better conditions to break it down and the enzymes work more easily. When large pieces of food are not broken down correctly, they go on to the large intestine where stomach bacteria begin to ferment them and gases are formed, among other things, and we feel bloated.
