Designs For Health
Digestzymes is a comprehensive, proprietary, and synergistic formula that contains betaine HCI (hydrochloride) and digestive enzymes. Its role is to help encourage and maintain the optimal digestion of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. Taking Digestzymes before a meal can enable individuals that experience occasional constipation and/or bloating and gas even after eating the smallest amount of food to experience a relief of their symptoms. It may also help combat the feeling of fullness that may accompany their meals.
How Digestzymes Works
Among the primary ingredients of Digestzymes is also dipeptidyl peptidase IV, a special protease that contributes to the breakdown of casomorphin and gluteomorphin, peptides coming from proteins casein and gluten respectively – both extremely difficult to digest. The formula also includes lactase, an enzyme responsible for breaking down lactose sugar that is found in dairy products. Digestzymes contains invertase, lipase, acid protease, glucoamylase, pepsin, and amylase, as well – all enzymes with potent digestive health-promoting properties. As a result, feelings of bloating and fullness after eating are significantly reduced – even eliminated – while ensuring optimal digestion.
Healthy Digestion: Its Importance in Your Overall Wellbeing
The busy modern lifestyle can impair the proper function of the digestive system, given how unhealthy diets most people have. The limited free time forces many individuals to prefer fast food to homecooked meals, which is definitely not the definition of healthy living. Bear in mind that the stressful situations almost all of us go through nearly on a day-to-day basis directly sparks the body’s “fight or flight” response and hinders the job of the digestive system, putting it a second priority. So, you can understand why you feel anxious, worn out, and worried so often. This situation may also lead to eating too quickly so that you can go back to your daily endeavors. All that combined result in the production of insufficient amounts of stomach acid to help digest the food.
Maintaining appropriate body weight is key for good health. This can be achieved through a proper diet, among others. Nevertheless, it is not only what we eat that makes the difference rather than but also whether the body can digest food properly and to what extent it can absorb the nutrients in the foods we consume, and then how effectively it can supply cells to these nutrients. If the digestion process is compromised at any stage, the body cannot gain the maximum health benefits from the consumption of nutrients, irrespective of how healthy our diet is. This, consequently, leads to:
- Occasional constipation
- Regular bloating, especially after eating
- Gas after meals
- Feeling full despite only having a small amount of food
- Bowel irregularities (i.e., occasional diarrhea)
- Mild heartburn/indigestion (food particles that are not digested bubble back up into the gullet/esophagus)
Proper digestion helps not only to ensure bowel regularity but also to sustain energy levels and prevent mood swings. Besides, having our digestive system working optimally contributes to reproductive health, strong nails, healthy skin, and a strong immune system. Plus, the human body tends to reduce the production of digestive enzymes by 1% every three years after the individual enters their 30s. This is why enzyme supplementation is required nowadays.
The formula contains:
Betaine hydrochloride (HCl) – An essential source of stomach acid (hydrochloric acid) that helps ensure the stomach acidity is kept at optimal levels. This is the only way the proteins in the consumed foods can begin to break down. Adequate HCl is also critical to stimulate the secretion of digestive enzymes that contribute to the breakdown of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats.
Dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPPIV) – An enzyme whose role is to foster the breakdown of casein and gluten, which are both proteins in milk and wheat that are difficult to digest.
Lactase – An enzyme that aids in the digestion of milk sugar (also known as lactose).
Ox bile extract – An enzyme that has similar properties as another Digestzymes compound, lipase, which breaks down and digests both fat-soluble proteins and fats.
Amylase – It helps break down carbs.
Pepsin – It can keep the body free of toxins while also stimulating the liver to secrete toxins-eliminating bile.
Protease SP – A proteolytic enzyme that helps improve digestion, reduce symptoms related to Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and decrease inflammation by breaking down food for energy. Acid protease, another ingredient in the synergistic formula, has the same qualities.
Glucoamylase – It aids the body to digest starch from vegetables.
Other ingredients: Rice bran, vegetable stearate, and microcrystalline cellulose.
- Always consult your doctor or physician before taking any supplement, dietary or nutritional, Digestzymes included.
- The recommended dose is one capsule daily with a meal unless your healthcare practitioner instructs otherwise.
- The formula is non-GMO and gluten-free.
