Digestive enzymes are absolutely crucial for proper digestion and the unlocking of nutrients which preserve our life. Our body depends on countless enzymes which control thousands of biochemical reactions that keep us alive, vibrant and healthy. They promote proper digestion and absorption of nutrients and help to regulate body weight and metabolism. Digestive enzymes are also essential for the elimination of waste products and toxins.
Unfortunately, most enzymes normally found in fresh and raw plant foods are mostly destroyed by heating. But even with the healthiest, unrefined and rich in nutrients diet, if our body has trouble breaking down and absorbing nutrients, due to lack of its own enzymes, we really can’t reap the benefits.
Deficiency of digestive enzymes and also insufficient production of stomach acid (HCl) may lead to malabsorption of nutrients and numerous health conditions including constipation, bloating, abdominal pain, nausea, heartburn, skin problems, tiredness, fatigue, underweight, overweight, allergies or food intolerances.
Today a growing number of health conditions are also linked to poor digestion and malabsorption of nutrients caused especially by deficiency of Amylase, Lipase and Protease regarded as the most vital among digestive enzymes produced in our body. Amylase is required to digest carbohydrates into simple sugars such as glucose, Protease breaks down protein into amino acids, and Lipase is in charge of fat break down. Since deficiency of these digestive enzymes is believed to be a common problem today addition of Amylase, Lipase and Protease in the HealthAid® Digeston® Plus formula can be very beneficial in improving digestion of macronutrients and reducing constipation, bloating, gas and other gastrointestinal problems.
By enhancing digestion and assimilation of nutrients Digeston® Plus may also increase energy levels and help to regulate body weight by improving metabolism or even help to gain weight if underweight is caused by insufficient production of digestive enzymes.
Addition of Lactase enzyme in Digeston® Plus may bring relief to people suffering from lactose intolerance, which is another very common problem. It is caused by the deficiency of lactase which is required to digest lactose (sugar) from milk. As a result lactose can’t be fully digested whenever dairy products are consumed and it leads to various unpleasant symptoms such as bloating, gas, wind, cramps, nausea and diarrhoea.
The HealthAid® Digeston® Plus is also boosted with a superior blend of 600 million viable bacterial strains of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium one of the most important types of friendly bacteria found in the digestive tract, colonizing mainly the large intestine and colon. Bifidobacteria are considered extremely important to the health of the gastrointestinal tract. They may play a vital role in aiding absorption of nutrients, strengthening the immune function, fighting Candida, preventing flu and colds, and eliminating various intestinal problems including wind, gas, bloating, diarrhoea or constipation.
Last but not least, the formulation also contains Chloride in the form of calcium chloride that is proved to contribute to healthy digestion by improving secretion of hydrochloric acid in the stomach.
Digeston®Plus tablets with vegan enzymes, fruit extracts, friendly bacteria and chloride, all in one-a-day tablet, offer you digestive comfort and intestinal balance!
HealthAid Digeston® Plus is a unique blend of numerous purely vegan digestive enzymes combined with fruit extracts such as pineapple and papaya, that are well known for their naturally occurring digestive enzymes to enable the breakdown of food.
Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
