Digestion
Digestion plays a vital role in our daily health — it's the complex process in which your body transforms the food you eat into absorbable nutrients and energy you need in order to thrive. The way that your food is processed and absorbed contributes to your digestive health. "Digestive health" means a lot more than just an upset stomach. Stress, poor diet, disease and medications are just a few of the things that can disrupt your digestive system's healthy balance. Poor digestion can have the same effects as poor nutrition — it is essential to not only have the right balance of nutrients in your diet, but to also ensure your digestion is performing at an optimum level. A healthy digestive system promotes proper nutrient absorption, intestinal wellness and immune health.

American Health Questions & Answers

When will I start to feel the benefits of a dietary supplement?
Due to differences in a person’s metabolism, general health and lifestyle, it is difficult to determine how long it will take for an individual to reap the full benefits of a dietary supplement. It is recommended that you continue to follow the directions as indicated on the label or consult with your health care practitioner.

How important is it to take a daily multivitamin?
Experts have historically agreed upon the need for every American to consume an adequate amount of vitamins and minerals to help fill the nutritional gaps in his or her diet. Even vegetarians, who some consider to be the archetype of the healthy lifestyle, may need a multi to get the nutrients their diets don’t provide in adequate amounts. In general, our bodies simply cannot obtain all the nutrients we need from the food we eat. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association?, even people who maintain a healthy diet should supplement with vitamins to improve their overall health. Aside from exercise and eating right, a daily multivitamin can help support your immunity, help fight free radical damage, and help your body get the extra support it needs as you age. Look for a whole food concentrate multivitamin, as it supplies your body with naturally occurring nutrients found with fruits, vegetables and whole foods - such as bioflavonoids and antioxidants - in a convenient delivery system. In addition, timed release formulas offer the benefit of both immediate and extended nutritional support throughout the day.

What exactly is digestive health?
It is more than just an upset stomach and regularity. Research now suggests digestive health is a key contributor to immune health. Digestion is a complex process of transforming the food we eat into energy while ridding our system of waste and toxins. Not only is the gut important to digestion, but it is critical to the overall performance of the immune system. Here the gut is able to recognize and reject microorganisms that may challenge the body’s defense system. Research suggests that probiotics help to support the barrier in the intestines which aid in the protection against harmful agents.

We all have both good and bad bacteria in our systems. We need the good bacteria in our digestive tract to help keep the bad bacteria in check. Probiotics have been shown to stimulate the growth of good bacteria in the intestinal tracts, help replenish depleted good bacteria after taking antibiotics, encourage proper nutrient absorption and promote immune health.

What could effect the balance of digestive health?
Ideally, the digestive tract should contain a balanced ratio of good bacteria and bad bacteria. Stress, poor diet, disease and even medications are just a few of the things that can disrupt digestion and its healthy balance of bacteria in our system. Probiotics add back the good bacteria which helps maintain this natural balance of organisms (microflora) in the intestines.

Part of the decline of the good bacteria is due to increased usage of higher and stronger antibiotics. Many of us have been told by healthcare professionals to eat yogurt because antibiotics kill both the good and bad bacteria. Good bacteria have now become casualties in our mission to provide a cleaner and healthy world. Recently, with the introduction of “antibacterial products,” we have been on a mission to rid our environment from disease and all bacteria. In combination with food safety regulations, increased additives in our foods and heat processes used to extend shelf life, neither the bad nor good bacteria are surviving the manufacturing process. To restore a level of digestive wellness, we need to put the good bacteria back into our systems.

What role do Enzymes play in digestive health?
Enzymes are biochemical catalysts that convert food into nutrients your body can absorb, and making these nutrients available for the body’s energy needs, cell growth and other vital functions. There are many different types of digestive enzymes with specific roles - amylases are responsible for breaking down carbohydrates into simple sugars, lipases breakdown fats into fatty acids, and proteases break down proteins into amino acids – together they promote complete and proper digestive balance.

Enzymes are produced naturally by the body during the digestive process; however we all do not produce enzymes at the same levels – some more some less. In fact studies suggest our bodies decrease enzyme production overtime. While enzymes are produced mainly in our digestive system they can also be found in some whole foods like papaya, which is a rich source of the enzyme papain, a powerful protein-dissolving natural enzyme. Enzymes promote nutrient absorption, natural regularity, immune health and gastric wellness. Supplementing with a quality enzyme formula is a basic approach to supporting proper digestive wellness.

Suggested Use

For adults, chew three (3) tablets following meals, or dissolve one (1) to two (2) tablets in mouth when needed.
