Many ills begin in the gut so having a healthy digestive system is key to your wellbeing. The multi-dimensional action of Digest Best helps to replace the enzymes naturally found in raw foods that are lost in cooking and processing. Big meals, heavy proteins, food intolerances, or bad combinations can overload your system. These enzymes will help relieve digestive complaints, plus help you fully digest the nutrients in foods, especially as we age.
This product is unique with the additions of Betaine HCl especially good at breaking down difficult to digest proteins, and L-Glutamine, which helps rebuild and soothe the intestinal lining.
Don’t let anyone in your family who suffers from a chronic digestion issue try to ignore it. One out of three surgeries in North America is due to a digestion problem, and the vast majority of cases developed over a long period.
Taking plant-based digestive enzymes increases the digestion and absorption of food by helping to break down carbohydrates, proteins, fats, dairy, and vegetable material (fibre or cellulose). These enzymes will not only relieve digestive complaints, they will also help you fully benefit from the nutrients in foods. Keep in mind that as you age, natural enzymes produced by the body are reduced so digestion and the ability to absorb nutrients continues to decrease.
Do you feel that you’re in constant conflict with whatever you put into your mouth?
Food intolerance, or sensitivity, affects a substantial percentage of the population. Symptoms include bloating, gas, constipation, cramping, diarrhea, indigestion, skin blemishes/rash, flushing and headaches. Common culprits are dairy, wheat, eggs, corn, chocolate, soy, nuts, beef, alcohol and coffee.
Other than avoiding foods that cause unpleasant reactions, taking a synergistic blend of digestive enzymes supplement naturally breaks down the different components (sensitivity-causing protein or sugar particles) of your meals, minimizing the amount of undigested food reaching the large intestine. This results in fewer gases and toxins being produced by bacteria, and reduces intolerance symptoms.
Enerex Digest Best synergistic blend contains enzymes including Amylase and Invertase to break down starchy carbohydrates, Protease and Peptidase to break down protein, Cellulase to break down soluble fibre in raw fruit, vegetables and grains, Alpha-galactosidase to digest sugars found in grains, beans and cruciferous vegetables, Lipase to break down fat, and Lactase to break down dairy products. This formula also includes Betaine HCl to aid indigestion, L-Glutamine to help repair and soothe the digestive tract, and DPP IV Protease to help further break down gluten in grains and casein in dairy — the common culprits for those with wheat and dairy intolerance.
What are enzymes?
Enzymes – created by the body and from food – perform approximately 10,000 different vital reactions in the body in addition to digestion. Digestive enzymes are protein molecules in the stomach, small intestine (produced by the liver and pancreas) and mouth (saliva) that break down foods into useable parts. Raw plants are the best source of food enzymes (even as little heat as 105 to 125 degrees F destroys enzymes). Enzymes make the plants’ seeds sprout. Foods rich in enzymes include papaya, avocado, grapes, kiwi, banana, pineapple, mangos, dates, raw honey, bee pollen, virgin olive oil, sprouts, and fermented food (sauerkraut, miso, tempeh).
The Enerex Advantage
What kind of digestive enzymes should you look for?
That depends on your specific digestion needs, but generally a multi-enzyme formula that is capable of helping to digest a wide range of foods is best. Read the label. Many formulas only offer one or two types of enzymes, for example, from papaya (papain) and pineapple (bromelain). By themselves, these don’t help to fully digest all foods. Choose a products that has a higher potency (when comparing the ingredient amounts with different brands) and those with complementary ingredients that aid enzymes.
In addition to its plant enzymes, Enerex Digest Best’s formula includes Betaine HCl, which increases the production of hydrochloric acid in your stomach to digest fats and proteins. It may help to reduce indigestion and intolerance symptoms, relieve heartburn and acid reflux. It has also been shown to reduce the risk of gallstones caused by hypochlorhydria (too little stomach acid).
To further boost digestion, DPP (dipeptidyl peptidase) IV Protease has been added. It breaks down gluten in grains and casein in dairy into small, more easily assimilated parts. Lack of this particular enzyme has been linked to Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, and Celiac Disease.
Unlike most digestive enzyme products, Enerex Digest Best also adds the amino acid called L-Glutamine to help repair and soothe the digestive tract. It’s used therapeutically to treat peptic ulcers and to prevent the deterioration of the mucosal lining of the intestines.
