Enhanced Super Digestive Enzymes Supplements - Benefits, Information/Dose
Without Probiotics (beneficial bacteria)

100 Vegetarian Capsules

The gastrointestinal tract is a long muscular tube that functions as the food processor for the human body.  The digestive system includes the following organs:  the mouth and salivary glands, the stomach, the small and large intestines, the colon, the liver and pancreas, and the gall bladder.

The gastrointestinal tract is not a passive system -- rather, it has the capability to sense and react to the materials that pass through it.  For a healthy digestive system, every person requires different food selections that match their gastrointestinal tract capacity.

As humans age, pancreatic enzyme levels decline, thus diminishing the ability to break down food.  Also, other conditions can cause a reduction in your body's enzyme production.  One effect of this problem is a bloated feeling soon after eating a large meal.  Enzymes are essential to your body's absorption and full use of food.

The primary digestive enzymes are proteases (digest protein), amylases (digest carbohydrate), and lipases (digest fat).  These enzymes function as a biological catalyst to help break down food.  Raw foods also provide enzymes that naturally break down food for proper absorption.

These enzymes are vital to maintain cellular function and optimal health.  New Enhanced Super Digestive Enzymes are the Life Extension's response to the need for a comprehensive enzyme supplement.  Designed to adapt to a variety of stomach acid pH conditions, New Enhanced Super Digestive Enzymes facilitate more digestion of protein, fat, carbohydrates, fiber, and lactose than our previous formula.

With five times more activity than the previous formula, this enhanced formula provides greater enzyme activity per serving for the same price -- along with smaller capsules.

The aging process and certain health issues cause a reduction in the bodys' production of digestive enzymes.  One effect of this reduction is a bloated feeling soon after eating a large meal.  Digestive enzymes are essential to the bodys absorption and full use of food.1-2  The primary digestive enzymes are protease (to digest protein), amylase (to digest carbohydrate), and lipase (to digest fat).  These enzymes function as biological catalysts to speed the reactions that break down food.  Raw foods also provide enzymes that naturally break down food for proper absorption.  The capacity of the living organism to make enzymes diminishes with age.

Your colon is a perfect breeding ground for many opportunistic bacteria that can multiply and cause inflammatory upsets and other digestive problems.51,52  In order to maintain a healthy digestive system, your body hosts beneficial bacteria in its gastrointestinal tract that defend against harmful microorganisms.  But poor diet, increasing age, stress and antibiotic use can all rob you of these good bacteria.  The result can be compromised immune function, disturbances in bowel function and other digestive discomforts.

Many people still believe they can get the healthy bacteria they need by eating yogurt.  But, very few of the bacteria in yogurt ever survive the harsh acid journey through the stomach and reach the intestinal tract alive to effectively combat the harmful bacteria and keep your GI tract healthy.
