A powerful blend of enzymes essential for the breakdown of foods and the proper absorption of nutrients
- Hormonal balance by assisting the body to regulate cortisol and thyroid hormones
- Reduces food allergies and immune system imbalances
- Supports absorption of fats, proteins and carbohydrates
- Can increase cellular energy, metabolism and assist in weight loss
- Prevents tissue damage during inflammation
Complete digest is a powerful blend of enzymes essential to support the proper breakdown and utilization of fats, proteins and carbohydrates in a healthy diet. A properly functioning digestive system is crucial to ensure nutrition absorption, prevention of a leaky gut and overgrowths of bad bacteria. When foods are not properly digested, absorbed and eliminated digestion function can suffer. If healthy bacteria become depleted overgrowths of Candida albicans, food allergies and immune system weakness can occur.
Complete digest uses a proprietary blend of Ox Bile Extract, Peptidase (DPPIV), Amylases, Pepsin and Lipase to set the stage for efficient and complete digestion of your foods. Complete digestion is important because digestion enzyme activity decreases as you age. Other ingredients include: Proteases which are essential in preventing damage during excessive inflammation, preventing over coagulation or clotting and over activation of our immune system. Betaine HCL was also added to the formulation and has been used to support anemia, yeast infections, food allergies and thyroid disorders.
Ox Bile Extract - Ox bile extract is part of a digestive enzyme blend that assists in the proper digestion of fats. Ox bile can help in reducing symptoms of nausea, upset stomach, diarrhea and bloating.
Bile contains substance that promote the proper breakdown of fats which our essential for our metabolism from fatty foods. In addition to digestive function, bile contains salts, minerals and cholesterol. This is usually taken with other digestive enzymes such as amylases, pepsin, lactase and lipase.
Betaine HCL - is an non essential nutrient found in many foods. This product supports normal gastrointestinal pH. Proper pH and stomach acid is important to ensure the breakdown of food particles and the absorption of nutrient by the body. Betaine HCL can support complete protein digestion and enhance absorption of nutrients like iron, calcium, folate and vitamin B12 absorption. Betaine HCL is also thought to prevent fungus and bacteria from overproducing in the gut by keeping adequate stomach acid to keep them in balance. People who suffer with Candida albicans (a yeast overgrowth) often have low levels of stomach acid.
The health benefits of Betaine HCL are numerous and is a critical nutrient in protecting and enhancing the functions of the body. It may aid with digestive function, cardiovascular health, liver function, muscle mass, fat loss and even detoxification.
Proteases - Proteases may seems like a nominal nutritional supplement but these enzymes have been studied for more than 100 years and over 350,000 articles have been published on their effects and actions. Proteases are enzymes that breakdown protein and peptides.
Proteases are responsible for: the absorption of amino acids, play a role in blood clotting, regulate immunity and function, formation of bone and they recycle proteins that are no longer needed.
