Enzymedica - Candidase - 42 Capsules
Enzymedica Candidase contains two enzymes for supporting the body’s natural ability to maintain healthy levels of candida. Cellulase breaks down the cell wall of candida while protease digests the interior proteins of candida. This combination provides a gentle, cleansing effect without harsh discomfort common to cleansing and encourages a healthy balance of intestinal bacteria.
- Supports the body's natural ability to maintain healthy levels of candida
- Encourages a healthy balance of intestinal bacteria
For both adults and children with multiple food intolerances, foods containing gluten, casein, lactose and phenols are frequent triggers, often creating digestive discomfort. Supplementing the diet with specialized enzymes like those in Digest Spectrum may assist in lessening discomforts common to multiple food intolerances.
Food intolerances are caused by enzyme deficiencies. Digest Spectrum is a unique combination of high-potency enzymes that provides specialized digestive support for individuals who experience intolerance to foods containing gluten, dairy and phenols.
Digest Spectrum contains Thera-blend enzymes. Thera-blend is an exclusive process that combines multiple strains of enzymes that work in various pH levels. Amylase Thera-blend is responsible for breaking down starch and carbohydrates into smaller sugars, while lipase Thera-blend helps the body break down fats. Cellulase Thera-blend helps the body digest dietary fiber, and protease Thera-blend helps break down proteins.The enzyme DPP-IV is also included in Digest Spectrum, helping the body better digest foods containing gluten and casein. Nine other enzymes are included to provide a broad range of digestive support.
Benefits of Enzymes
When foods are cooked or processed, the enzymes that are naturally in the food are destroyed. Since the modern diet consists primarily of cooked or processed foods, we rely on the digestive enzymes that our bodies manufacture to help us break down our meals.
We all normally produce both metabolic and digestive enzymes. As we age, our bodies produce fewer of the enzymes that we need.
There are many different kinds of enzymes, and they each have a specific purpose. Sometimes people simply have a deficiency of certain types of enzyme. This is why food intolerance's occur. For example, lactose intolerance is caused by a deficiency of the enzyme lactase.
The good news is that studies have shown that by supplementing your diet with the right combination of digestive enzymes, you can take meaningful steps to improve and maintain your digestive health. The result may be improved regularity, less digestive discomfort, and better assimilation of vital nutrients.
Advantages of Digestive Enzyme Supplements
Nearly one in three people in the U.S. experience some kind of digestive problem. Though many suffer, few have to. The typical benefits of enzyme supplementation include reduced digestive distress, increased energy and improved regularity.
- Soothe Digestive Distress: When undigested foods travel through the intestines they can irritate and potentially damage the sensitive intestinal wall. Over time, this irritation may reduce our digestive capacity and negatively influence the vital absorption process.
- Increase Energy: According to Yuri Elkaim author of Eating for Energy, in most cases, up to 80% of our body's vital energy is spent on digestion.3 By aiding the breakdown and absorption of foods, you can free up enormous amounts of energy, increasing physical vitality and enhancing energy levels.
- Promote Regularity: Promoting proper digestion may encourage a healthy intestinal environment, and help relieve occasional constipation and irregularity.
