Pro-Digestion Intensive Capsules by Seeking Health provide a broad spectrum of digestive enzymes derived from vegetarian sources to support optimal digestion and normal nutrient absorption.
Seeking Health's Digestive enzyme supplement contains a targeted blend of disaccharidase enzymes that are needed for proper cleaving of sugars including lactose (milk sugar), maltose (from cereal grains), sucrose (table sugar), and amylopectin (starch) molecules into their absorbable monosaccharide forms.
Insufficient disaccharidase production by the small intestine can cause carbohydrate malabsorption, bloating and discomfort. Incompletely digested sugars or starch can also be fermented by pathogenic organisms and may contribute to yeast overgrowth, SIBO and dysbiosis.
Seeking healths digestive enzymes help to breakdown the sugars and starches to prevent bloating and overgrowth of opportunistic organisms that are found in the gut such as candida. Ensuring the optimal breakdown and absorption of sugars can can help to keep bacteria in balance and prevent small intestinal bacterial overgrowth. Too much undigested sugar and starches are fuel for bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine.
Protein molecules require multiple enzymes for complete digestion. Proteases degrade proteins into peptides of 10 to 20 amino acids in length. Peptidases then complete the process by splitting peptides into single free-form amino acids that are used by the body.
Incompletely digested peptides from gluten (gluteomorphins), may cause adverse effects in some individuals. Pro-Digestion Intensive provides a protease/peptidase complex with dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP-IV) activity to help with the breakdown of ingested gluten.
Inflammation of gastointestinal tissues can result from various causes such as undigested or partially digested food, ingested or endogenous toxins, intestinal pathogens, and exposure to allergenic substances.
Seeking healths digestive enzymes provide optimal digestion of foods that could be potentially irritating to the gut lining as undigested food can be a source of irritation and inflammation to the intestinal lining.
Pro-Digestion Intensive supplies serratia peptidase, a unique enzyme that helps protect sensitive gastrointestinal tissue from irritation and inflammation.
What are the benefits of digestive enzymes?
The primary benefits of digestive enzymes is to help with the breakdown and absorption of food for optimal nutrient absorption. If food is not properly broken down a host of digestive symptoms can occur.
What digestive enzymes should I take?
While there are many different types of enzymes and supplements on the market you may be wondering what enzymes are beneficial for you? The 3 most well known and utilized enzymes are:
Protease enzymes which help to breakdown protein
Lipase enzymes which help to breakdown fat
Amylase enzymes which help to breakdown starches
Depending on which foods are problematic for your can help to pinpoint which foods you need additional support with breaking down.
Seeking health's Pro-Digestion Intensive helps with contains these 3 primary enzymes along additional enzymes to help with the breakdown of plant fibers, legumes and starches.
When to take digestive enzyme supplements?
Digestive enzyme supplements should be taken with food as they are designed to help with the breakdown of food. The best time to take a digestive enzyme supplement is at the beginning of your main meals especially with the foods in which you have difficulty digesting.
