RELiZORB Hydrolyzes Fats Prior to Ingestion

RELiZORB is a digestive enzyme cartridge that contains iLipase® and connects in-line with enteral feeding systems. Lipase is covalently bound to the small white beads inside the cartridge. The lipase-bead complex, iLipase, is retained within the RELiZORB cartridge during use by two filters. As the enteral formula flows through, the iLipase hydroylzes the fats in the formula into an absorbable form (fatty acids and monoglycerides) for your patient.

iLipase is made up of the digestive enzyme lipase attached to small polymeric microbead carriers and is stored within the RELiZORB cartridge

RELiZORB is proven to hydrolyze available fats, including medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) and long-chain triglycerides (LCTs).1

  • LCTs are complex and contain essential fatty acids2
  • Compared to MCTs, LCTs are harder to hydrolyze but provide ~10% more calories2
  • RELiZORB is intended to provide continuous fat hydrolysis during enteral feeding

Please see list of compatible formulas.
