What is DigestMORE ULTRA? DigestMORE ULTRA is a therapeutic strength enzyme formula designed for those whose digestive problems occur on a daily basis, or are serious in nature. What Causes Enzyme Deficiency? • Lack of vitamins, minerals and electrolytes which the body requires to make enzymes. This is caused by poor dietary choices. • Age - over time the body begins to produce fewer enzymes. • Enzymes naturally occurring in food are destroyed when heated above 47°C (118°F). • Processed and packaged foods contain very few, if any, enzymes. • Exposure to air and light (limp and pale looking vegetables are enzyme depleted). • Fluoridated water paralyses enzymes. How is it delivered? DigestMORE ULTRA contains powdered enzymes in vegetable capsules. What does it do? When DigestMORE ULTRA is taken with a meal, it works to break down food products into their smallest usable components (nutrients). This allows the body to absorb the maximum amount of nutrients from your meal. When food is effectively broken down, the overall function of the digestive system is improved, including a reduction in the amount of gas produced. How does it work? DigestMORE ULTRA contains digestive enzymes. Enzymes are catalysts for chemical reactions within the body. Without them, food is not broken down properly. Many people do not produce enough enzymes, therefore they are unable to absorb all of the nutrients from the food they are eating. This leads to symptoms such as gas, bloating, heartburn, constipation, and is the first step toward more chronic disease. DigestMORE ULTRA contains enzymes which address every type of food group including; proteins, fats, carbohydrates, dairy, plant and vegetable material (cellulose), and sugars. The elements in DigestMORE ULTRA enhance digestion beyond what the body is normally capable of. This combination of enzymes functions under the whole range of gastric pH levels from 2-14. DigestMORE ULTRA also includes the enzymes Phytase and Pectinase, which break down harmful phytates, which can cause malabsorption. Phytates are found in seeds, grains, and beans. Phytates have been shown in clinical studies to block the absorption of many minerals, especially calcium. This can be problematic for vegetarians, as these foods are staples in their diet. By breaking down phytates, DigestMORE Ultra eliminates this problem. DigestMORE Ultra also contains the enzymes Cellulase, Hemicellulase and Xylanase which the human body is unable to produce. These enzymes break down plant fibres, which cause gas and bloating. f undigested foods reach the large intestine, it becomes fuel for the "bad" bacteria in your intestinal tract. These "bad" bacteria will putrefy the undigested food, releasing volatile fatty acids and gasses that cause bloating and often foul smelling gas. If you provide your body with enough enzymes to break down all of your food, then the "bad" bacteria will have nothing to ‘eat’, and bloating and gas diminish. How do I take it? Take 1 capsule just before each meal as needed. What can I expect? People usually take DigestMORE ULTRA because they have chronic digestive upset (severe gas, bloating,). DigestMORE ULTRA helps you to break down much more of the food that you eat and as a result there are reduced symptoms of indigestion. In some cases, you may experience more energy because you are absorbing more nutrients from your diet.
