Incomplete digestion can be a major contributor to the development of many diseases. Foods and nutritional substances are of little benefit when breakdown and assimilation are inadequate and, undigested food molecules can be absorbed, which can lead to various diseases and the development of food allergies.
For food to be digested and assimilated our body produces enzymes in four areas: the salivary glands, the stomach, the pancreas and the wall of the small intestines. Each enzyme can break down only specific substances, carbohydrates, proteins or fats, and different enzymes are active at different pH levels. The exclusive matrix formulation of Digestin allows for two phase, pH sensitive release of the contents of the capsule, with some of the enzymes being released in the stomach or gastric phase and the others released in the intestine or enteric phase.
The stomach secretes hydrochloric acid and various hormones and enzymes. In Digestin’s gastric phase the protein digesting enzyme, pepsin, betain HCL as a source of hydrochloric acid and stomach substance to provide growth and repair factors are released. Research studies show that as we age the ability to secrete acid declines.
Digestin is equally active in the intestines, which participates in all aspects and transport of ingested materials. The intestine secretes a variety of digestive and protective substances as well as receiving the secretions of the pancreas, liver and gall bladder. In its enteric phase, Digestin releases pancrelipase, cellulase, duodenal substance, Papain and bile extract.
Digestin’s comprehensive complex of digestive enzymes and it’s dual phase release insure the right amount of digestive enzymes at the right place for maximum digestion and assimilation. Common symptoms of poor digestion include bloating, belching, gas, and flatulence; indigestion, constipation, diarrhea, food allergies, acne, anemia and intestinal parasites like candida.
