- Supports Healthy Digestion and Maximizes Nutrient Absorption
- Supports Gastric Acid Balance and Digestive Function
- Provides Protease-Rich Digestive Enzymes for Improved Protein Breakdown
- Helps Maintain Healthy Gastrointestinal Flora
Hectic lifestyles and overcooked food can make digestion less than optimal. Poor digestion can produce bloating and gas, cramping, diarrhea or constipation, and even food intolerances. Incomplete digestion of food proteins may also be linked to food allergies, and improper digestion of foodstuffs can cause foods to be fermented in the gut, and can lead to the proliferation of “bad” bacteria and yeast at the expense of “good” intestinal bacteria. More complete digestion removes a potential food source for these bad bacteria, allowing for the complete breakdown of food proteins which helps support regular bowel movements.
Digestive Support is a full-spectrum enzyme strategically designed to support each phase of digestion. In the gastric phase, betaine HCl and pepsin prime the stomach, ensuring proper pH to initiate the first phase of digestion. This sets up for the second stage of digestion, the enteric phase, in which high-concentration protease, amylase, lipase, and trypsin are released and activated in the small intestine to ensure proper protein breakdown and fat absorption. This unique blend of high-powered enzymes works to enhance digestion and ensure maximum nutrient intake.
1-2 capsules before each meal or as recommended by your health care professional.
Enzyme and Stomach Acid Depletion
Since stomach acid and healthy digestive enzymes are essential for access to nutrients from foods, depletion of enzymes and hydrochloric acid may result in suboptimal nutritional status.
Gastric Phase Digestion (Stomach)
Betaine hydrochloride is an acidic form of betaine, used in the gastric phase to help bring the stomach to a more acidic pH to aid in digestion. Studies have shown the ability to secrete gastric acid decreases with age. Common symptoms of low gastric acidity include: bloating, belching, burning and flatulence immediately after
