Digestion GB contains digestive enzymes, bile salts, taurine and herbal extracts to promote healthy gall bladder function and fat utilization. The metabolism of fats involves emulsification and digestion in a complex process that requires healthy liver, gallbladder and pancreas function. Milk thistle, curcumin and taurine promote liver and gallbladder health and stimulate production and secretion of bile acids. Bile acids, also provided in the form of ox bile salts, support the emulsification of fats necessary for digestion. The digestive enzymes included in this formula are active in a broad pH range to support fat, carbohydrate and protein digestion to complement pancreatic enzyme activity. This formula has enhanced lipase for extra fat digestion support.
Digestion GB contains a unique mix of enzymes, bile salts, taurine and herbals to promote healthy gall bladder function and lipid utilization in addition to general digestive function.
Digestion GB by Pure Encapsulations is a blend of digestive enzymes including bile extract. The bile extract is good for anyone that experiences difficulty digesting fats or had their gall bladder removed.
Insufficient enzyme production is at the root of many digestive issues and chronic diseases. It is an unfortunate fact that 90 percent of the food Americans buy is processed. Diets heavy in processed foods, refined sugars, and hydrogenated oils, combined with overuse of prescription medications such as antibiotics, deplete your body's ability to make enzymes. Another very common cause of insufficient digestive enzymes is low stomach acid, as enzymes are sensitive to changes in pH. Low stomach acid can be the result of aging, but is frequently the result of antacids and acid blocking drugs.
Also, cooking food can destroy many digestive enzymes. For this reason, you should incorporate some raw vegetables into your daily diet. Raw foods are rich in enzymes, and consuming them decreases your body's burden to produce its own enzymes.
Enzyme deficiency results in poor digestion and poor nutrient absorption. Some signs you may be low in digestive enzymes include:
- Flatulence and belching
- Heartburn and reflux
A lack of enzymes can lead to malabsorption, resulting in nutrient deficiencies and ultimately in disease. If your body doesn't have the basic nutritional building blocks it needs, your health and ability to recover from illness will be compromised. Further complicating matters, your capacity for enzyme production also declines with age. If you are experiencing any of the digestive issues above, I recommend you try a high quality digestive enzyme.
