What is DigestMORE? DigestMORE is a plant based digestive enzyme formula designed for digestive problems which do not occur everyday or only occur with a specific type of food or quantity of food. 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 contains powdered enzymes, herbs, and amino acids in vegetable capsules. How does it work? DigestMORE 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, heartburn, constipation, and is the first step toward more chronic disease. DigestMORE contains enzymes which address every type of food group including; proteins, fats, carbohydrates, dairy, plant and vegetable material (cellulose), and sugars. This combination of enzymes functions under the whole range of gastric pH's from 2-14. DigestMORE also includes the enzymes Cellulase and Phytase. Phytase works to 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. Cellulase, which the human body is unable to produce, breaks down plant fibres that cause bloating and gas in many people. If undigested foods reach the large intestine, it becomes food for the "bad" bacteria in your intestinal tract. These "bad" bacteria will putrefy the undigested food, releasing volatile fatty acids and gasses. These gases cause bloating and often foul smelling gas after meals. 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. Further, these volatile fatty acids and gasses also damage the intestinal tract lining. This lining is responsible for letting good nutrients in, and toxic materials out. If damaged, there is a free flow of materials from your intestinal tract into the bloodstream. This is a major cause of allergies, food sensitivities, and autointoxication. Enzymes alone are not always enough to ensure proper digestion. Most people also need to help repair this damage done to the intestinal lining. Therefore, it is important to rebuild the digestive tract lining with nutrients such as L-Glutamine and N-Acetyl-D-Glucosamine. These 2 nutrients, along with soothing herbs, can help to ensure a healthier digestive tract. How do I take it? Take 1 capsule just before each meal as needed. What can I expect? People usually take DigestMORE because they have some sort of digestive upset (gas, bloating, or upset stomach). DigestMORE helps to break down food more completely. 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.
