Digest Basic contains a number of enzymes, and each has a unique function in digesting our food. Some of the enzymes break down protein (proteases), while others break down fat (lipases) and carbohydrates (amylases). Additional enzymes help with the whole meal. Gas and bloating are often the result of the body not having enough digestive enzymes to break down the food we eat, and that is where supplements like Digest Basic can make all of the difference in the world.* Digest Basic uses Thera-blend technology to allow the enzymes to work throughout the entire digestive tract. Each enzyme variant has a slightly different optimal pH where it functions best. By mixing different enzyme variants within each major class of enzyme type, Digest Basic is able to work at multiple pH levels. This is important because the pH in the digestive tract can range from very acidic to more alkaline. For example, the pH in the stomach is 1.5 (acidic) and up to 8.3 in the intestines (alkaline). Digest Basic:
• Provides gentle help for sensitive stomachs
• Breaks down fat, fiber, protein & carbs
• Speeds up digestion
• Boosts energy
• Reduces occasional gas, bloating & indigestion
The recommended dosage for Digest Basic is 1 to 2 capsules just before a meal.
NOTE: Two capsules of Digest Basic is roughly equal to one capsule of Digest, the next highest potency digestive enzyme formula from Enzymedica.
