What is Digest?

Digest is aptly named, delivering the best complete enzymes to eliminate bloat – for no gas or discomfort.* Each small capsule contains enzymes like amylase, lipase, cellulase and protease to break down macronutrients (carbohydrates, fats and protein, plus fiber).*

Think about all the different foods you eat every day and how they make you feel. Each food – from a cupcake as a birthday treat to a superfood salad – delivers a unique combination of nutrients that fuel your body. Digestive enzymes give your digestive tract the “code” to unlock the potential of all the foods you eat. Feel the difference when you effectively break down carbs, fat, fiber and protein with Digest.

What are Digestive Enzymes?

Digestive enzymes are the enzymes present in your digestive system that help your body break down food. While it’s rather common to lack sufficient amounts of these enzymes, a shortage can impact digestion. (Hello, gas, bloating and occasional indigestion!*) Taking digestive enzyme supplements can help speed up your digestion, by giving your body what it needs to optimize that essential bodily process.*

Enzymes are both present in the body and in the food we eat, but sometimes that’s just not enough. Processed foods are common in today’s busy world. What they offer in convenience, they lack in enzymes. So, if you’re eating on the run or grabbing food quickly, you might not get what you require to properly digest every meal. Heating or cooking food can also destroy enzymes, so diet alone may not be enough (even if you eat a super “clean” and healthy diet). Other natural factors including age and lifestyle habits impact our enzyme production.

Note: A raw food diet isn’t the answer! Your body needs plenty of digestive enzymes to break down foods that are uncooked, too. (Especially high-fiber fruits, vegetables and other plants!)

What's inside Digest?

Digest has a unique pH-based combination of enzymes that will operate in your entire digestive tract's varying pH levels (alkalinity and acidity levels).

Here's a quick look at some of the major enzymes, including those found inside Digest:

Amylases for breaking down carbohydrates:

Amylases are enzymes that break down carbohydrates into sugar. Sugar (glucose) is used by the body for energy. When your body doesn’t produce enough of this type of enzymes, you could end up with undigested carbohydrates fermenting in your lower GI tract. That can lead to embarrassing and inconvenient gas and bloating.

Think about when you make homemade bread: Once you’ve made the dough and let it rest, it begins to rise. Ever wonder why? Fermentation causes it to rise by releasing air bubbles in the dough. That gas helps your dough and yields a tastier bread, but it isn't what you want to experience after a meal! Amylases give your body what’s needed to break down carbohydrates correctly.

Lipases for breaking down dietary fats:

Lipases are enzymes for dietary fat digestion. These enzymes also help your body access fat-soluble nutrients (like vitamins A, D, E and K as well as omega-3 and other fatty acids) so you can absorb them and unlock their benefits. Without sufficient amounts of lipases, your body isn’t able to fully access those nutrients, which are essential for immune, bone, brain and cardiovascular health.

Proteases for breaking down proteins:

Proteases are digestive enzymes that help break down and separate proteins into amino acids (the building blocks of proteins). They also help your body’s natural cell turnover process, by helping to clean up and clear out dead and dying cells (a completely natural part of the cell life cycle), tissues and toxins that are protein-based. Protease enzymes help your body in making use of the amino acids necessary to construct and maintain healthy muscle tissue.

Cellulases for breaking down fiber:

Cellulase is an enzyme that breaks down cellulose, or dietary fiber. While your body produces the other types of digestive enzymes, cellulase is a little different. It comes from the microflora (aka the good bacteria) found in your gut. Cellulase is not actually made by your body itself. Without adequate cellulase to break down the fiber you eat, your body isn’t able to make full use of that important nutrient found in plants. Your body also needs that enzyme to deal with the phytochemicals found in fruits, vegetables, herbs, grains and other plants. 

Thera-blend: Enzymes for the entire digestive tract

Digest includes Thera-blend™ enzymes that are proven effective all the way through your digestive tract.* That’s important, because you need those enzymes to survive until they get to where they need to go.

In choosing a digestive enzyme supplement, make sure it can stand up to the diverse environments found in your entire digestive tract. Digestion isn’t limited to one area, after all.  Enzymedica products offer the most complete range of enzymes. That means always, with no exceptions. We include some enzymes that are not found in lower-priced or lower-quality products, too. Digest includes the powerful technology of Thera-blend™ to ensure all of our enzymes work throughout the digestive tract.

If enzymes can’t get where they’re needed, you’re throwing your money away. Thera-blend™ is an innovation that ensures you get your money's worth out of Digest or any Enzymedica digestive enzyme supplement!

How Do I Use Digest?

Digest is super easy to use. Take 1 capsule with each meal. More may be taken as needed. Consult with a physician prior to use if you are pregnant, nursing, taking medications or have a medical condition.

Always read the label on any supplement and follow the suggested use instructions. And talk to your health-care provider before trying new things.

How to Spot a Quality Digestive Enzyme Supplement?

The secret to choosing a quality digestive enzyme supplement is to look at how the enzymes are measured. Enzymes are not weighed in metric units like milligrams or grams. They're also not measured like recipes, in dashes, pinches or cups. That is simply not the way that digestive enzymes function! Enzymes should always be measured according to their respective activity levels, using a specific set of purity, quality and identity of food ingredients standards established by the internationally accepted Food Chemical Codex. As the industry leader in digestive enzymes for over 20 years, we know this -- and we always follow the Codex.

Regardless of which of our products you take for your digestive health, there will always be a rating of each enzyme's activity levels. Look at any of them, and you'll see the "Supplement Facts" label. We provide the various types and activity levels of each enzyme or combination, as well as the specific activities included with each one.

Whatever the formula that you choose, it will contain Enzymedica's proprietary Thera-blend™ technology. That means that the enzymes will be guaranteed to work throughout the entire pH spectrum found along your GI tract. When other enzyme formulas may fall short or simply not work, our enzymes will be effective in almost all acidic or alkaline environments.

Bottom line: Don’t waste money on digestive enzyme supplements that fail to disclose the activity level of the ingredients!
