Digestive enzymes are necessary to break down the foods you
eat into components your body can then use. Aging, diets rich in
processed food, stress, and mineral deficiencies all contribute to declining or
poor digestive enzyme production. Digestive enzyme deficiencies can
contribute to a host of health issues: from the stomach (gas, and bloating) to
the immune system, weak hair and nails, and repeat Candida overgrowth.
In addition to the all of the basic digestive enzymes that
aid in the breakdown of proteins, fats, starches, celluloses, sugars and
lactose; Digest Ultra Pro contains key enzymes that provide additional
benefits. These include: Alpha Galactosidase, Beta-Glucanase, Phytase and
Bromelain for their unique and important digestive benefits, Beta Glucanase
because the human body cannot produce it on its own and it helps in the
breakdown of plant walls (cellulose) and increases the overall efficiency of
binding excess cholesterol and toxins in the intestines for removal, Alpha
Galactosidase (often referred to as the ‘gas enzyme’) because it helps break
down complex carbs and sugars that are often hard to digest, Bromelain (a
mixture of enzymes found in pineapples) which helps digest protein, and phytase
(essential digestive enzyme) because research shows it can help increase the
body’s ability to absorb and assimilate vital minerals such as calcium,
magnesium, and iron and because phytase can break down phytic acid which can
help reduce toxic build up in the digestive tract.
