Enzymedica Digest Basics, 180 Caps


Digest Basic utilizes Enzymedica's exclusive Thera-blend technology for combining the plant-based enzymes protease, lipase, amylase, and cellulase, essential enzymes that assist in the digestion of proteins, fats, carbohydrates, dairy products, and fiber. It is a 100% vegan/vegetarian formula that contains no fillers (chemical or otherwise) and is free of common allergens such as gluten, soy and casein.

Digest Basic offers a gentle potency foundational formula for most age groups in an easy to swallow capsule. It is an excellent choice for people who have experienced sensitivity to high potency digestive enzyme supplements in the past. If you are looking to purchase one digestive enzyme formula suitable for your entire family, Digest Basic is the one.

Enzymes are biologically active proteins necessary for all living organisms. There are two types of enzymes that the body produces. The first, called metabolic enzymes, catalyze and regulate all biochemical reactions that occur within every living cell. The second, called digestive enzymes, turn the food we eat into energy and unlock this energy for use in the body. Our bodies naturally produce both digestive and metabolic enzymes as they are needed.

Raw foods naturally contain enzymes to provide the body with digestive assistance upon indigestion. Since most of the foods we eat are either cooked or processed, the enzymes naturally present in these foods are destroyed. Because of this, our bodies must produce the majority of the digestive enzymes we require, unless we use supplemental enzymes to aid in the digestive process.

We are all born with the ability to produce a finite number of enzymes in our lifetime. Studies dating from the 1940s prove that this ability varies in each of us and is dependent on our individual DNA.1 This enzyme-making potential gives our body’s organs the ability to produce either metabolic enzymes or digestive enzymes. When we eat a meal, the requirements for digestive enzymes become a high priority. Our body must work overtime and often still cannot meet the demand for all of the enzyme requirements the body may have.

Since digestion always takes precedence, many body functions requiring metabolic enzymes are often shortchanged during these times. The result is a general weakening of the body’s ability to mend itself. While enzyme deficiencies lead to malabsorption and poor nutrition, enzyme supplementation may enhance the digestion of foods to allow the availability of nutrients to be utilized by the body. Additional benefits from enzyme supplementation include decreasing the amount of energy the body utilizes for digestion and increasing enzyme potential to support other functions of the body.

Poorly digested protein putrefies, fats turn rancid and carbohydrates ferment. These undigested food particles may leak back into the bloodstream from the colon and create further toxicity. Enzyme deficiency can manifest as energy loss and weakened immunity. Supplementing with a high potency plant based enzyme formulas such as Digest may aid in digesting foods to inhibit this process. In addition, Acid Soothe may be taken after each meal for common gastrointestinal distress and discomfort.

Enzymedica is dedicated to providing exceptional enzyme-focused supplements at the most therapeutic levels available in the natural foods industry and beyond. It is their commitment to provide unprecedented education and research that propels individuals on the path to vibrant health. Using cutting-edge formulations, in 1998 Enzymedica introduced Thera-blend™ to the industry. Thera-blend is a proven technology for blending multiple strains of enzymes, shown to be far superior in potency over competing brands.

From the beginning, Enzymedica understood how everything begins with digestion. All food is composed of protein, fat, carbohydrates and fiber. The key to turning food into energy is enzymes. Once food is broken down, the body can rebuild and heal, build or create energy and remove toxins.

Recommended Usage:

Take one capsule with every meal for enhanced digestion. More may be taken as needed. For those that need a higher potency enzyme formula, look for Enzymedica’s Digest or Digest Gold.

Digest Basic is a gentle potency digestive formula which contains essential enzymes to support digestion of all four major food groups. There is no need to purchase enzymes in singular formulas when they are so successfully combined to create Digest Basic. An introductory enzyme formula, Digest Basic is appropriate for most any age groups, particularly for those individuals who experience sensitivity to higher potency digestive enzyme blends.

Taken with each meal, Digest Basic’s broad range of plant based enzymes support healthy digestion and elimination. The enzymes in Digest Basic optimize the nutrients we receive from the foods we consume, in both quantity and quality. In addition to these benefits, the formula aids relief of common digestive ailments such as occasional heartburn, bloating and gas. By decreasing the amount of energy used by the body for digestion, we free up our enzyme potential for use in metabolism and cellular health. This may lead to healthy aging and a greater sense of physical well being.

Occasional gas, bloating, indigestion, heartburn and irregularity can affect all members of the family. A gentle enzyme product may be all that is needed to combat these irritating digestive complaints.*

Enzymes are key players in the digestive process. They help to maximize nutrient extraction and turn consumed food into energy. Enzyme deficiencies can lead to a variety of digestive discomforts, including occasional gas, bloating, indigestion and irregularity.

These deficiencies may result from a combination of age, diet and lifestyle. For example, natural aging depletes the amount of enzymes available for use in the body. And when foods are cooked or processed, the enzymes contained within the food are destroyed, requiring the body to use its own enzymes to break down foods. Keeping up with the process of digestion can strain the body. Supplementing with enzyme products like Digest Basic™ can aid in the digestive process.*

Digest Basic is intended for the whole family as an introductory digestive enzyme product. Since it is a gentle formula, it may also be an excellent choice for individuals who have experienced sensitivities to high-potency digestive enzyme blends. Digest Basic capsules are small, making them easy to swallow.

Digest Basic is a gentle formula that breaks down carbohydrates, fats, fiber and protein. The broad range of enzymes included in Digest Basic supports optimal digestion by helping the body absorb nutrients and convert food into energy.* Digestive well-being improves concentration and increases vitality.*

Digest Basic contains Thera-blend™ enzymes. Thera-blend is an exclusive process that combines multiple strains of enzymes that work in various pH levels. Thera-blend enzymes have been shown to be three times stronger and work more than six times faster than leading digestive supplements.* For more information, visit www.enzymedica.com.
