Good health begins with proper digestion. Yet digestive disorders, indigestion, abdominal discomfort, bloating and gas are widespread. More than 10 percent of the population is lactose intolerant.
While antacids may neutralize stomach acid, they actually slow the digestive process without addressing the true cause of indigestion. DigeSEB®-GI reduces the discomfort of incomplete digestion, while actually improving the breakdown of carbohydrates, fats and proteins.
DigeSEB-GI is a powerful blend of digestive enzymes including proteases, alpha and beta amylase, invertase, maltase, alpha-galactosidase, lipase, and cellulase. This optimal blend of enzymes is specifically designed to break down a broad range of foods into nutrients your body can readily use. Further, these enzymes are designed to be effective across a wide pH range throughout the entire digestive track.
DigeSEB® -GI supports the digestion of lactose, as well as casein and other proteins and fats inherent in dairy products. Also, it contains HemiSEB®, a special enzyme complex that breaks down hard-to-digest components of plant fiber. Alpha-galactosidase breaks down complex carbohydrates found in legumes, vegetables, and grains, while reducing the discomforts of incomplete digestion.*
DigeSEB-GI is a complete and optimal digestive formula containing the following ingredients:
AMYLASE is an enzyme that breaks down carbohydrates, more specifically starch, into smaller dextrins and sugars and is produced naturally by humans, microorganisms and plants.
PROTEASES are enzymes that hydrolyze (break-down) proteins like casein, steak, gelatin, soy, fish and other plant and animal proteins to smaller chains of polypeptides (small proteins) and amino acids for easier uptake throughout the body.
LIPASE is an enzyme that catalyzes the break-down of fats into essential fatty acids that are needed for healthy tissues and cells.*
LACTASE is an enzyme that breaks down milk sugar (lactose).
HEMICELLULASE (HemiSEB® cellulose) is an enzyme that breaks down carbohydrates, like fiber and other plant polysaccharides whose digestion can be problematic.
CELLULASE is an enzyme that digests cellulose, a complex polysaccharide found in all plant material including plant fiber.
MALTASE is an enzyme that breaks down starch into the sugar maltose.
INVERTASE is an enzyme that breaks down sucrose into the simple sugars glucose and fructose.
BROMELAIN is a collective name for the proteolytic (protein-digesting) enzymes found in the pineapple plant (Ananas comosus ) and is known for its digestive properties. Because of its activity across a wide pH range, bromelain is a good substitute for pepsin and trypsin for digestive support.*
SERRAPEPTASE (Peptizyme SP® Brand) is an enzyme used by silkworms to dissolve their silken cocoons. It has been isolated, studied, and used extensively for over 50 years and has been found to be an excellent fibrinolytic (fibrin digesting), and proteolytic (protein digesting) and anti-inflammatory enzyme.*
PAPAIN is a widely used enzyme obtained from the latex of the fruit of the Papaya tree. Papain has been used for centuries as an effective digestive aid.*
ALPHA-GALACTOSIDASE is an enzyme that breaks down complex carbohydrates such as raffinose, and stachyose, commonly contained in legumes.
AMLA, or Indian gooseberry (Emblica officinalis) is a natural and efficacious antioxidant. It is one of the richest sources of absorbable vitamin C available.
PAPAYA POWDER (GREEN) from green papaya fruit is a natural source of papain and chymopapain, two enzymes that are well-known for their digestive, proteolytic (protein-digesting) properties.
DIGESTIVE ENZYMES: Specialized cells in the pancreas, stomach and salivary glands produce digestive enzymes. These enzymes, along with those found in live foods, facilitate the break-down of food that results in their absorption and the eventual production of energy. Digestive enzyme supplementation can enhance nutrient absorption, increase energy, and promote overall better health.
