Digestive Enzymes - Supports Healthy Digestion
Digestive Formula is a unique two-phase digestive enzyme supplement that mimics the two primary phases of healthy digestion.
In phase one (the stomach), acidic nutrients are released from each tablet, along with the protein digesting enzymes pepsin, papain, and bromelain, to support the healthy acidic enzyme environment of your stomach. In the second phase (small intestine), the tablet releases bicarbonate, pancreatic enzymes, and bile salts just like the gallbladder and pancreas to help digestion in the upper intestines.
These pancreatic enzymes are multifunctional, because they help the digestion of all foods, including proteins, fats, and complex carbohydrates. Use of Digestive Formula can help improve digestion in many people, including those who may experience occasional indigestion or heartburn.
Supports Acid-alkaline Balance in the Digestive System
People with occasional “indigestion and heartburn” of different types find that dietary supplementation with Digestive Formula often helps promote healthy digestion.
The whole process of digestion requires more energy from the body than any other process. Hydrochloric acid production diminishes easily under stress and also decreases as we grow older.
Among other things, adequate levels of stomach acid are needed for optimal absorption of minerals and vitamin B-12, as well as for complete digestion of dietary proteins. These functions may be needed in order to maintain the ability to make adequate amounts of stomach acid.
Time-Released Two-Phase Formula
Digestive Formula is a unique two-phase digestive supplement that imitates and complements the primary two phases of healthy digestion. The acidic substances, betaine hydrochloride and glutamic acid hydrochloride (one of the amino acids) are released from phase one of the tablet, along with the protein digesting enzymes pepsin, papain, and bromelain.
Together these help support the healthy acidic enzyme environment of the stomach.
The pH-sensitive second phase of the tablet releases bicarbonate, pancreatic enzymes, and bile salts to complement and support the natural second phase (small intestinal) of digestion.
The second phase of digestion begins when food passes from the stomach into the small intestine. As the partially digested food enters here, its strong acidity signals the pancreas to secrete bicarbonate along with its starch, protein, and fat digesting enzymes.
Secreted bicarbonate neutralizes the stomach acids, and raises the pH in the small intestine to just slightly acidic (about 5.5), which is the chemical environment in which the pancreatic enzymes work best.
The gallbladder simultaneously secretes bile into the small intestine, which helps to emulsify dietary fats and fat-soluble vitamins so that they can be well absorbed from the intestine.
Provides Enzymes for Proper Digestion
In addition to the different protein, fat, and complex carbohydrate digesting enzymes included in Digestive Formula, it also supplies a proprietary blend of beneficial microflora in a stabilized media including whole-leaf Aloe vera, beet root, and lecithin.
Additionally, Digestive Formula is formulated in the exclusive Life Plus PhytoZyme Base, which contains specific plant enzymes and concentrates from over 30 specially-selected fruit, vegetable and herbal concentrates.
The old saying “you are what you eat” is only partly true; you are what you eat, digest, and assimilate. Healthy digestion is fundamental to good health.
Try Digestive Formula for a month or two and see if it makes a difference. If it does, you and your entire body will be glad you did!
