Enzymes for Digestion
Enzymes are key players in the digestive process. They help to maximize nutrient extraction and turn consumed food into energy. Enzyme deficiencies can lead to a variety of digestive discomforts, including occasional gas, bloating, indigestion and irregularity.
Enzyme deficiency may result from a combination of age, diet, and lifestyle. Natural aging depletes the number of enzymes available for use in the body. When foods are cooked or processed, the enzymes contained within the food are destroyed, requiring the body to use its enzymes to break down foods. Supplementing with enzyme products like Digest Gold™ can aid in the digestive process.*
Digest Gold is the most potent formula on the market.‡ It contains amylase, lipase, cellulase and protease Thera-blend™ enzymes, for breaking down carbohydrates, fats, fiber, and protein, respectively. Thera-blend is an exclusive process that combines multiple strains of enzymes that work at various pH levels.
ATP is produced in every cell and is found in all raw foods. Without ATP, nutrients would not be able to pass through the cell membrane, so it allows cells to benefit from the nutrition in food. A combination of natural aging, lack of exercise and eating cooked and processed foods can significantly increase the demand for ATP, making it difficult for the body to keep up. Even those living a healthy lifestyle may be challenged with a constant state of energy deficiency.
The ATPro™ Blend in Digest Gold is a combination of ATP, Magnesium Citrate, and CoQ10. Research has shown that ATP is present in the digestive tract by oral intake (unprocessed foods carry ATP) and is used as a signaling molecule for many vital processes. This signal is critical for timely, proper and complete digestion of food.*1 Digest Gold contains 300,000,000 LCUs of ATP per capsule.
