Optimal Digestive System - 90 Vcaps
  • Clinically Tested Enzymes
  • Maximum Food Utilization
  • Also helps Bean and Cabbage Digestion
  • Vegetarian Formula

Digestive enzymes are essential to the body's absorption and full use of food.  The capacity of the body to make enzymes diminishes with age, and therefore the efficiency of digestion declines.  NOW Optimal Digestive System contains a blend of non-GMO fungal-derived enzymes that will aid in the digestion of most foods, including beans and cruciferous vegetables. 

The vegetarian enzymes in NOW Optimal Digestive System have been proven in a controlled laboratory study by the Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research (TNO Nutrition and Foods Research) to have efficacy throughout the entire pH range of the digestive system and are not degraded by acid in the stomach.

Enzymes are responsible for every chemical reaction that takes place in our bodies. These reactions allow our cells to build up and break down molecules quickly. Vitamins, minerals and hormones mean nothing without the labor force of enzymes. 

Processed foods are a real problem for our health.  These enzyme-free foods force your body to steal enzymes from other parts of the body, just to digest, rather than using the enzymes from the food itself to do the job. This depletes the limited supply of enzymes we have in our body. It has been said when your body runs out of enzymes, you die. The quicker you use up your enzyme supply, the faster you’ll run out. You will only live as long as your body has enzymes.

Giving your body digestive enzymes to help aid digestion is like hiring more workers for an extremely large task. The more workers you have, the better executed the task will be. Digestive enzymes help fight to keep your gut healthy. They are the key substances of the digestive process, working to break down our food for proper absorption
