There is an old naturopathic saying, you are what you eat. And though this is crucial in determining our health—E.g., pick the carrot instead of the cured meat—there is another saying that goes a little something like this, you are what you absorb. One of the most important determinents of optimal health and chronic disease prevention is the types of foods that we select for inclusion in our diet, the manner in which we eat, and our ability to digest food and absorb nutrients. Optimal health simply cannot be experienced—even when the diet is exceptional—unless we chew our food adequately, and then have adequate amounts of digestive acids and enzymes to break down food particles and liberate nutrients for absorption into general circulation.
Herbs of Gold Digest-Zymes contains a unique blend of digestive enzymes that target the breakdown of common macronutrients, including carbohydrates, proteins, fats, lactose (milk sugar) and fibre. Furthermore, Gentian root is in the formulation as it has been demonstrated to stimulate the parietal cells of the stomach directly, thus increasing their hydrochloric acid (HCL) secretions.
HCL plays the important role of unfolding or denaturing proteins, thus preparing them for enzymatic digestion, and sterilising the stomach against pathogenic bacteria. Furthermore, bromelains, a proteolytic enzyme found in high concentrations in the pineapple core, is added to Herbs of Gold Digest-Zymes to ensure that proteins are digested adequately, along with protease, which is also a proteolytic enzyme1.
Lactase is an enzyme that is synthesized in the brush border of the small intestine and has the important job of digesting lactose, the sugar found in mammalian milk. Given that breast milk is weaned in infancy, humans have not evolved to continue synthesizing lactase in adulthood to a large degree, as it is expected that milk intake of any kind will be minimal, be it cow, camel or goat.
This is one of the reasons that lactose intolerance is so prevalent in developed nations that tend to consume dairy products as a regular part of the diet. Lactase supplementation, taken orally, has been shown to be an effective means at supporting the digestion of this milk sugar, thus reducing signs and symptoms of lactose intolerance2. Herbs of Gold Digest-Zymes contains 1.5 thousand ALU of lactase per capsule.
Herbs of Gold Digest-Zymes is an exceptional blend of supportive digestive enzymes and a potent herbal extract, designed to improve the processes of digestion, thereby improving absorption of important nutrients. This may assist with a reduction of common signs and symptoms, including bloating, flatulence, belching and indigestion.
