Probiotics Promote Intestinal Wellness
Probiotics are the healthy flora that reside in our digestive tract. These organisms support regularity, aid the immune system, produce vitamins like B and K, and fuel our digestion through their production of enzymes, including lactase, protease, and amylase. The enzymes made by the flora work synergistically with our own inherent enzymes to support optimal wellbeing and digestive health.
Enzymes are the most effective tools made by the body to aid digestion. Enzymes are manufactured throughout the digestive system, and we consume them in the form of enzyme-rich raw foods. Like tiny shears or clippers, enzymes help break down the foods we eat, leaving particles small enough to enter the bloodstream.
However, even individuals who consume a healthy diet experience digestive difficulty from time to time. Supporting the digestive system with a supplemental enzyme formula can maximize digestion thereby boosting overall health and wellness. Formulated to assist in the digestion of proteins, fats, carbohydrates and fiber, the enzymes in Digest Gold + Probiotics represent the most complete digestive formula on the market.
Probiotics are active cultures which must make their way through various obstacles in their journey to the gastrointestinal tract. These live organisms then take up residence and provide benefits. First, they must stand up to the exposure to light, heat and moisture on the shelf. After consumption, they must withstand harsh stomach acid and other digestive fluids.
Probiotic activity and potency is measured in colony forming units (CFUs). Lab tests can conferm product stability by measuring these CFUs. In a recent test comparing typical refrigerated probiotics versus the exclusive TherActive Delivery System over a 30 day period, probiotics coated with TherActive technology retained 100% of their guaranteed potency (even at room temperature). This compared to uncoated refrigerated probiotics, which retained only 3%.
Once the capsule is swallowed, the digestive enzymes are released in the upper section of the stomach. TherActive delivery allows the probiotics to safely bypass the acid environment of the stomach. Once reaching the ideal pH of the small intestine, TherActive Delivery releases the probiotics allowing them to colonize and establish healthy microflora balance.
Dave Barton, Enzymedica's Director of Education, shares, "Before TherActive Delivery, probiotics encapsulated with enzymes were left vulnerable to enzymatic activity in the capsule, not to mention the potential for die-off in their passage through the stomach acid. For guaranteed activity and stability, TherActive is the delivery you can trust."
About Enzymedica: The Enzyme Experts
Enzymedica is dedicated to providing exceptional enzyme-focused supplements at the most therapeutic levels available in the natural foods industry and beyond. It is their commitment to provide unprecedented education and research that propels individuals on the path to vibrant health.
In the spring of 1998, Enzymedica was born
The role of Enzymedica is to offer the public the most effective enzyme products available. They utilize the expertise of doctors, researchers and clinicians in formulating each of their products. They are proud of what they have to offer the public, namely therapeutic enzyme supplements that have been health professional proven.
Enzymedica's entire focus and purpose is enzymes
They are the experts. Unlike most of their competitors, Enzymedica does not make vitamin supplements or herbal cleanses. All they manufacture are the highest quality, highest potency enzyme products available.
Enzymedica products are Health Professional proven
Enzymedica products contain the highest therapeutic activities available. No other company uses higher active units in a multiple enzyme line. In addition to a digestive enzyme that is on average three times stronger than their competitors, Enzymedica has a therapeutic digestive enzyme blend, a carbohydrate digestion and allergy assistance blend, a blood purifier, and a fat digestion and cardiovascular product.
Enzymedica is proud to be GMP Registered through NSF International. Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) are guidelines that provide a system of processes, procedures, and documentation to assure the product produced has the identity, strength, composition, quality, and purity that it is represented to possess.
NSF International helps protect you by certifying products and writing standards for food, water and consumer goods. As an independent, not-for-profit organization, NSF's ongoing public health commitment is to encourage everyone to live safer. The NSF GMP Registration for contract manufacturers and internal manufacturing facilities of dietary supplement companies enables contract manufacturers to become independently registered by NSF as complying with GMP requirements as listed in Section 8 of NSF/ANSI Standard 173-2006. NSF's Dietary Supplement Standard is updated to keep pace with FDA GMP regulations.
Enzymedica uses an exclusive Thera-blend process for its protease, lipase, amylase and cellulase
This means that each of these enzymes actually represents multiple strains. For example, there are actually four proteases in the Thera-blend protease. They are blended for their ability to break down numerous bonds of protein in varying pH levels. Enzymedica does this at a considerable expense. From a label description Enzymedica also sacrifices active units to provide the best blend possible. A single protease, for example, could produce more active units per milligram than a multiple protease. However, the active pH would be narrow and the number of protein bonds it could break would be limited.
Enzymedica products are 100% vegan and vegetarian
Enzymedica uses no fillers in any of its enzyme formulations. You will no doubt notice how small the capsules are in comparison to similar products. This is a result of using concentrates with no fillers.
Enzymedica continues to research the therapeutic effectiveness of plant based enzymes through doctors and clinicians. Currently, the company is coordinating and funding research that is ongoing. Enzymedica has every batch third party tested. This ensures they always meet label claim.
