Health Benefits at a Glance:
Enhanced Super Digestive Enzymes with Probiotics can help support the digestive process and break down food. In addition to this, it also contains the probiotic B. coagulans which further supports the digestive tract, while suppressing less beneficial intestinal bacteria at the same time for overall better intestinal health, function and digestive comfort.
Why it Works:
Digestive enzymes are essential to the absorption of nutrients from food and using them in many bodily processes [1,2]. However, the natural aging process can inhibit production of digestive enzymes, making it harder for the body to absorb and use the nutrients from food [3,4]. This can result in feeling bloated and other digestive discomforts after eating a large meal, as well as causing imbalances in the digestive system.
Enhanced Super Digestive Enzymes with Probiotics provides carefully chosen enzymes required to support the natural digestive processes that break down food [5-8].
Furthermore, this product provides the same enzymes that are found in Enhanced Super Digestive Enzymes. But in addition to this, Enhanced Super Digestive Enzymes with Probiotics has the added benefit of containing the probiotic B. coagulans.
This probiotic creates a natural protective shield that helps resist digestion in the stomach allowing it to colonize in the intestines . B. coagulans support digestive health and also suppress less beneficial bacteria.
The Science Behind the Product:
Studies have shown that enzyme supplements can support the proper breakdown of food, thereby optimizing digestion and nutrient absorption [5-8]. While the pancreatic enzymes protease, amylase, and lipase break down proteins, starches and fat, lactase help with the digestion of milk sugar and cellulase with the breakdown of often hard to digest plant fiber.
Many studies done on probiotics have reported their effectiveness in managing common gastrointestinal (GI) conditions. Spore-forming bacteria like Bacillus coagulans can take advantage of their high survivability to quickly inoculate the GI tract with healthy flora .
How to Use:
Take one (1) capsule one to two times daily prior to the heaviest meals, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner.
