Digestive Enzymes - Supports Healthy Digestion
Digestive Formula is a unique digestive supplement that helps support the acidifying and enzymatic steps in the healthy digestive process.*
Acidifying nutrients support an environment which normally helps to initiate and facilitate digestion. Supportive carbohydrate, protein and fat hydrolyzing enzymes further support this process. The multifunctional pancreatic enzymes are especially important, 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
Hydrochloric acid, produced by the stomach, plays an important role in the first phase of digestion. Optimal digestion begins with a pH (a measure of acid/alkaline balance) between 1 and 2, which is as strong as the acid used in car batteries. In addition to initiating the proper digestion of protein, fat, and carbohydrate, strong stomach acid also creates a barrier against foreign bacteria, fungi, and parasites that may be on food that we eat.
The stomach lining is designed to withstand the strong acid generated during and after eating; however, the esophagus is not. Various factors may cause one to have occasional heartburn. Antacids and acid blocking agents provide relief, however natural methods for minimizing incidences of occasional heartburn may be better in the long term.
These include weight loss, proper breathing, and avoiding certain foods such as chocolate, mints and other spices with strong aromatic oils, coffee, tea, alcohol, tobacco, and carbonated drinks. . Frequent small meals, not eating 4-5 hours before bedtime, elevating the head of the bed by six inches, and sleeping on the left side can also be helpful.
Use of Digestive Formula can help improve digestion in many people, including those who may experience occasional indigestion or heartburn. The whole process of digestion requires virtually more energy from the body than any other process. Hydrochloric acid production diminishes easily under stress and also decreases as we grow older.
