Douglas Laboratories - Bilex

A Synergistic Dietary Enzyme Formula

No Preservatives or Flavoring - 90 Tablets

Douglas Laboratories Bilex is a synergistic dietary enzyme formula that is specially formulated for digestive support.


The pancreas supplies the major digestive enzymes that catalyze the breakdown of starches (carbohydrates), proteins, and fats, so that the breakdown products can be absorbed in the upper small intestine. Some carbohydrate digestion takes place in the mouth by salivary amylase, but pancreatic amylase is the major carbohydrate-digesting enzyme.

Amylases break down starches to maltose and maltotriose, which are further hydrolyzed into glucose by the disaccharidases of the mucosal cells, and then absorbed. Although cellulose is indigestible by pancreatic and intestinal enzymes, the microflora within the large intestine may degrade it and produce uncomfortable symptoms in the process.

Although fat digestion starts in the mouth with the action of salivary lipase, the great majority of fat triglycerides are digested by pancreatic lipase secreted by the exocrine pancreas into the duodenum. Lipases break down triglycerides into monoglycerides and free fatty acids, which are efficiently absorbed in the upper small intestine.

Protein digestion is initiated in the stomach by pepsin and hydrochloric acid, which denature and break large proteins down to smaller polypeptides. In the small intestine, proteases break down these polypeptides into free amino acids, and di- and tripeptides, which are directly absorbed by the intestinal mucosa. Papain is a protease enzyme derived from papaya and is an enzyme that breaks peptide bonds. Bile is normally secreted by the gallbladder to digest fat. Ox bile is very similar to human bile to help aid in digestion and assimilation of lipids in the small intestine.


Bilex may be a useful dietary supplement for individuals desiring digestive support of food.
