The enzyme Pepsin is found in the gastric juice and is responsible for the breakdown of protein into smaller peptides.
Pectin is a soluble dietary fiber. Studies have also shown Pectin to be helpful in maintaining normal cholesterol levels.
Dehydrocholic Acid can be used to increase output of bile by the liver and the filling of the gallbladder. Preparations of this acid are used to aid the digestion of fats and increase absorption of fat-soluble vitamins.
