Udo’s Choice Digestive Enzyme Blend is a blend of seven active plant-based enzymes chosen to assist the breakdown of proteins, fats, carbohydrates, soluble fibre, starch, milk sugar and complex sugars – aiding healthy digestion and nutrient absorption.
The Power of Enzymes
Digestive enzymes are like scissors that cut up the foods we eat into basic building blocks. Our body then absorbs and reassembles these blocks to build cells, tissues, organs, glands and entire body systems.
Without enzymes, we could not exist. Our bodies’ reactions would be too slow for life to be possible. The human body makes and uses more than 3,000 kinds of enzymes that initiate or speed up chemical reactions.
Where do Digestive Enzymes come from?
Two main sources:
- Internal: the digestive system secretes a few digestive enzymes in the mouth and stomach, but most are secreted by the pancreas and small intestine.
- External: foods that are raw, sprouted or soaked or supplements of digestive enzymes from plant or animal sources.
Why Choose Enzymes?
- Caffeine, alcohol, illness, pregnancy and stress all take their toll on our enzyme reserves
- Our bodies produce fewer enzymes as we age
- Today`s diets don`t contain as much enzyme-containing raw foods as they once did
This carefully designed formula aids the digestion of foods, leaving you free to enjoy your favourite meals again.
Enzymes have no taste.
For best results, open up and mix the contents of one capsule of digestive enzymes throughout cold or warm (but not piping hot) foods, or swallow capsules during the meal. It is most important to take digestive enzymes with foods that are rich in proteins.
Udo’s Choice Ultimate Digestive Enzyme Blend comes in 100% vegetarian capsules and is made from 100% plant-based digestive enzymes using the solid state fermentation method.
