Udo's Choice Ultimate Digestive Enzymes Immediate Relief Vegetarian Capsules
A complete blend of ten active plant-based enzymes to break down fats, carbohydrates, proteins, sugars and fibre resulting in healthy digestionn, improved nutrient absorption, increased energy levels and reduced hunge. What is Udo's Choice Ultimate Digestive Enzyme blend? Intended for use as a replacement for enzymes lost in the cooking and processing of food and to make up for decreased internal enzyme production due to age, this complete blend of ten active plant-based enzymes breaks down proteins, fats, carbohydrates, soluble fibre, starch, milk sugar and complex sugars resulting in healthy digestionn, improved nutrient absorption, increased energy levels and reduced hunge. It does this by providing enzyme activity combinations, which are precisely balanced to optimize the body's utilization of food nutrient. What Do Enzymes Do? Without enzymes, we could not exis. Our bodyies' reactions would be too slow for life to be possible. The human body makes and uses more than 3,000 kinds of enzymes that speed up chemical reactions and save energy. Digestive enzymes are like scissors that cut up the foods we eat into bAsiac building blocks that our body then absorbs and reassembles to build cells, tissues, organs glands and entire body System. If our digestionn is compromised then so is our health. Many enzymes on the markett today are made from animal organs - hog stomach, bovine pancreas, lamb forestomach et. These individual animal enzymes work only in a narrow pH range, and are usually only capable of digesting protein or fa. Udo's Choice Ultimate Digestive Enzyme blend, however, is a broad spectrum plant and microbially derived enzyme supplement that has a wide pH range of activity, allowing it to function throughout the entire digestive trac. Why Do We Need to supplement with Enzymes? Caffeine, alcohol, illness, pregnancy and stress all take their toll on our enzyme reserve. Our bodyies also producte fewer enzymes as we age but the main cause for digestive enzyme shortage is our modern diet. Today's diets don't contain as much enzyme-containing raw foods as they once did, and modern food processing techniques and cooking destroy nearly 100% of these naturaly occurring enzyme. Raw foods may not even contain as many enzymes as they should, due to environmental factors, depleted soil and presservation technique. So the body is left to try and compensate by producting more internal digestive enzymes, but its ability to do this has limit. Enzyme-deficient foods put a burden on the digestive System that it wasn't designed to handl. Incomplete digestionn can lead to poor nutrient absorption, fatigue, digestive upset, food allergies and other health condition. Partially digested food particles escaping from the gut cause an immune responsee, and the body may also "steal" enzymes from the immune tem, compromising it even furthe. The Importance of protein digestionn Ultimate Digestive Enzyme blend is especially rich in protein digesting enzyme. This is because when protein digestionn in particular is poor, many problems can arise such as bloating, acid reflux, inflammationn, food allergies, autoimmune reactions and impaired immune function. The protease (12,500 HUT of protein digesting enzyme) in Ultimate Digestive Enzyme blend has been formulated to be active in the stomach where most digestionn occur. In order to increase protein digestionn in the intestines, bromelain (50,000 PU), which prefers the more alkaline pH of the small intestine, has been added to complete the digestive proces. These high doses of protease and bromelain, with their abilities to be effective at the necessary pH, make Ultimate Digestive Enzyme blend a superior formul. International standards for Enzyme Potency Enzyme potency is bestt measured in terms of enzyme activity. Weight measurements are not appropriate and can be misleading, as there is not a direct relationship between weight and units of activity. In fact, an enzyme will still have a weight even if it has been destroyed and has no activity. Also if a low potency enzyme is used, the weight will be even greater, because it requires more enzymes to achieve the same activity level as the higher potency enzym. The measurements on Ultimate Digestive Enzyme blend reflect the activity of the enzyme, so you can see that they are active and working at breaking down food. It should also be noted that the amount of filler may also contribute to the weight of an enzyme product, but with the FCC measuring System, the weight of any filler is irrelevan. The internationally recognized and accepted standard for measurement is by food Chemical Codex Unit. However, the law does not require their use and those who express enzyme potency in units other than the FCC standard are perpetuating the confusion concerning enzyme potencies and are preventing the consumer from making an informed choice through comparison of activity, not weight of enzyme product. Ultimate Digestive Enzyme blend is made according to the FCC method, and therefore uses the FCC measuring System to define the potency of the enzyme. Maximum Results Enzymes have no tast. For bestt results, open up and mix the contents of one capsule of digestive enzymes throughout cold or warm (but not piping hot) foods, or swallow capsules during the mea. It is most important to take digestive enzymes with foods that are rich in protein, as poor protein digestionn can trigger many health problem. Ultimate Digestive Enzyme blend comes in 100% vegetarian capsules and is made from 100% plant-based and microbially derived digestive enzymes using the solid state fermentation method recommended by the FC. Beet root fibre is used as a filler due to its non-allergenic propertie. Maltodextrin may be pressent in trace amounts onl.
