Digestive Enzymes - what does pH have to do with it?

 Suffering from wind, bloating or flatulence?

You shouldn’t have to. By using carefully formulated natural enzymes, you can offset reactions to problem foods.

You just need to understand a little about the significance of pH in human digestion.

What is pH anyway?

pH is a measure of acidity or alkalinity. The human digestive system has varying pH levels throughout its entirety.

These pH levels act as a switch; turning the natural enzymes in your body on an off, i.e. activating and de-activating them. A high pH will stimulate some enzymes, while a low pH will trigger others. The solution to this - is the perfect combination of enzymes.  

That’s where Enzymedica’s TheraBlend™ products come in  

When Enzymedica create their natural enzyme products, through a patented TheraBlend™ process,  they make sure they blend enzymes that work at every pH level. If they didn’t, the products may not work in the acidic environment of the stomach, or underperform in an alkaline environment like the small intestine  – making them ineffective for the whole of the digestive system.

If you are avoiding certain foods or restricting your diet in some way, TheraBlend™ enzyme products could significantly reduce the symptoms.

The stomach – our protein factory

The human stomach is naturally a very acidic environment, i.e. with low pH levels. However, if you are using antacids or other medication it can become alkaline causing problems like wind, bloating and flatulence.

Taking enzymes like TheraBlend, that can operate in both environments, means you get more breakdown of protein-based food such as meat, chickpeas, tofu, lentils and beans. This acidity will totally deactivate lesser  enzyme products, rendering them unstable for the rest of the digestive health journey.

If you are digesting proteins properly but having problems with carbohydrates or vegetables – non-blended, or single enzyme products not suited to the breadth of pH levels, will be of little use.

The intestines – our carbohydrate factory

The intestines are a more alkaline environment, i.e. with higher pH levels. It’s here that most digestion occurs and the majority of enzymes get to work. pH sensitive enzymes will switch off – but TheraBlend enzymes can be depended on to get to work. Any adverse digestive reactions to carbohydrates such as fibre, beans, legumes and vegetables will be switched off due to the activity of the vegan pancreatic enzymes in Enzymedica products - thanks to TheraBlend technology.

Further down the intestines – our lipid factory

Once the protein and carbohydrate aspects of digestion is complete, in comes the gallbladder with its very high pH level. Ultra-alkaline fluid reduces the pH even further to activate lipase enzymes which digest fats such as those found in olives, avocado, oils, butters and animal fats. Again, the enzyme make-up of TheraBlend, brings the lipase enzymes to life and helps eliminate floating, sticky or loose stools.

We are so confident that Enzymedica’s TheraBlend products will help with your digestive problems, we promise results within 30 days, or your money back – guaranteed.
