Alpha Amylase

Alpha Amylase is an enzyme that breaks down starch into sugar molecules.  This enzyme is present in both humans and mammals.  It is found in the mouth, where it starts the chemical process of breaking down food. Alpha amylase is beneficial for your dog because it helps kick start the digestive process which will help your dog digest their food better and get the most out of the vitamins and nutrients that are contained in the dog food. More digested food = more nutrients and less dog poop!
