Good Health Naturally Essential Digestive Plus 60 capsules
Essential Digestive Plus is a professional strength enzyme which may aid digestion.
Enzymes are produced by the body to help completely break down food for proper absorption. To digest food properly, especially cooked food, the body first releases ptyalin in the mouth as you chew the food. The stomach then secretes hydrochloric acid and pepsin to continue breaking down the food. The food travels to the small intestine, where it will spend several hours being digested. Upon entering the small intestine, the pancreas releases three main digestive enzymes: protease to digest protein; lipase to digest fat; and amylase to digest carbohydrates.
Essential Digestive Plus contains Fruta-Fit® Inulin to support a well balanced gut flora composition and colonic function by selectively stimulating the growth of Bifidobacterium to aid digestion and absorption of essential minerals and synthesis of vitamins.
Inulin is an excellent soluble dietary fibre that promotes digestive health by enriching the fibre content of food. It also has a prebiotic effect, stimulating the production of beneficial bacteria in the colon. And because inulin has a low caloric value and promotes satiety, it can make a major contribution to weight management. It can even boost calcium absorption, resulting in improved bone health.
