DigestMORE Ultra is an advanced plant enzyme blend with greater amounts of digestive enzymes per capsule than most other
products on the market today (see label above for details). It differs from our original DigestMORE formula in that it is a straight
enzyme formula specifically targeted for difficult digestion and the breakdown of a broad range of foods and nutrients.
Enzymes play an essential role in every function in the human body, including eating, digestion and nutrient absorption, seeing,
hearing, breathing, kidney and liver function, healthy elimination and more. In the digestive system, enzymes help break down foods
by breaking apart the bonds that hold nutrients together. As a result, the body is able to use those nutrients for energy.
Although enzymes are typically present in raw, whole foods to assist with digestion, the majority of people do not obtain enough
enzymes through diet alone. Today’s diet of cooked and heavily processed foods depletes the natural enzymes from food and leads to
poor digestion, as the body may not be able to completely break down foods and obtain their valuable nutrients.
Why take Enzymes?
Enzymes help break down and digest food so the body can use it. Poor diet and rapid eating can cause incomplete breakdown of food.
Without the enzymes needed for proper digestion, the body may not be able to digest and absorb the valuable nutrients it needs.
Everyone can benefit from taking digestive enzymes with their meals, as they help maximize the nutrient intake from food.
Why are Plant Enzymes best?
All bodies are different. Some digestive tracts are more acidic, and some are more alkaline. Plant-sourced enzymes are best because
they are effective in both acidic and alkaline systems.
What To Look For When Buying Enzymes
Generally, when shopping for enzymes, you want to compare the variety of enzyme types in an enzyme blend:
- protease and papain for digesting proteins
- amylase for carbohydrates
- lipase for fats
- lactase for dairy
- phytase for phytate, a form of phosporus in plants (fruits and veggies)
- cellulase and xylanase for plant fiber
- invertase for sucrose (table sugar)
- glucoamylase for starches
- alpha galactosidase for beans and legumes
- beta glucanase for plant fiber and certain types of fungi, yeast, and bacteria
- hemicellulase for plant cell walls and sugars
- pectinase for fruits and pectin thickeners in processed foods (as in jams and jallies)
The more variety of enzyme types, the broader the range of substances they can digest. In addition, enzymes act as catalysts for
thousands of functions in the body, so a broader spectrum of enzyme types can aid other functions in the body.
Along with variety, you want to look for the number of activity units for each enzyme type in the blend. An enzyme activity unit
is an indicaton of how much of a substance gets catalyzed or digested per minute. Higher activity units indicate a more effective enzyme.
Finally, you want to look at synergistic blends of enzymes. Certain grouping and amounts of enzymes work better than others. This is
not easily determined since enzyme blends are highly proprietary, but look for any mention of synergistic blends by the manufacturer
and see what results you get with the product compared to others you may have used.
