What are enzymes and how do they work?
Enzymes do digestion. They are naturally occurring proteins that speed up reactions. Enzymes act like tiny scissors, cutting up the food we’ve eaten into smaller components. This helps our body more easily and fully absorb nutrients.
Without enough enzymes, our body can struggle to break down troublesome foods, leading to occasional gas, bloating, indigestion and irregularity. With all-natural enzyme supplementation, your body gets an extra boost to the digestive process, helping maximize energy and contributing to whole-body health.*
If my body and food already produce enzymes, why do I need supplements?
Not only can an enzyme deficiency come from diet and lifestyle, but our bodies naturally produce fewer enzymes as we age. It can be hard to get what we need through diet alone because the process of cooking destroys the enzymes contained within food. Taking an enzyme supplement can help fill in the gap.
What is different about Digest Basic™ enzymes versus others?
Not all enzyme supplements are created equal, and Digest Basic, while gentle, is still one of the most potent formulas on the market. It contains powerful enzymes like amylase, lipase, cellulase and protease. These enzymes break down complex foods like carbohydrates, fats, fiber and protein.* At the same time, it is not so harsh as to be uncomfortable — making it ideal for those with sensitive stomachs.
Enzymedica's proprietary Thera-blend™ technology means that the enzymes found in Digest Basic will work throughout the entire pH spectrum found along your digestive tract. When other brands’ enzyme formulas may fall short, in almost all acidic or alkaline environments, Digest Basic will be effective.
