Digest Gold + Probiotics combines Enzymedica's award winning digestive enzyme formula with 500 million cultures of specially coated (TherActive) probiotics. Digest Gold + Probiotics system is not an encapsulation process--it is a coating that allows for maximum performance and preservation of probiotics. Enzymedica makes Digest Gold Plus Probiotics superior to standard time release mechanisms. TherActive delivery ensures release in the alkaline pH of the lower intestine, guaranteeing potency, delivering healthy bacteria into the intestinal tract for optimal benefit.
Combining enzymes and probiotics is ideal. Digest Gold + Probiotics provides complete digestive care in the convenience of a single capsule dose.
Probiotics Promote Intestinal Wellness
Probiotics are the healthy flora that reside in our digestive tract. These organisms support regularity, aid the immune system, produce vitamins like B and K, and fuel our digestion through their production of enzymes, including lactase, protease, and amylase. The enzymes made by the flora work synergistically with our own inherent enzymes to support optimal wellbeing and digestive health.
Enzymes are the most effective tools made by the body to aid digestion. Enzymes are manufactured throughout the digestive system, and we consume them in the form of enzyme-rich raw foods. Like tiny shears or clippers, enzymes help break down the foods we eat, leaving particles small enough to enter the bloodstream.
However, even individuals who consume a healthy diet experience digestive difficulty from time to time. Supporting the digestive system with a supplemental enzyme formula can maximize digestion thereby boosting overall health and wellness. Formulated to assist in the digestion of proteins, fats, carbohydrates and fiber, the enzymes in Digest Gold + Probiotics represent the most complete digestive formula on the market.
Probiotics are active cultures which must make their way through various obstacles in their journey to the gastrointestinal tract. These live organisms then take up residence and provide benefits. First, they must stand up to the exposure to light, heat and moisture on the shelf. After consumption, they must withstand harsh stomach acid and other digestive fluids.
Probiotic activity and potency is measured in colony forming units (CFUs). Lab tests can conferm product stability by measuring these CFUs. In a recent test comparing typical refrigerated probiotics versus the exclusive TherActive Delivery System over a 30 day period, probiotics coated with TherActive technology retained 100% of their guaranteed potency (even at room temperature). This compared to uncoated refrigerated probiotics, which retained only 3%.
Once the capsule is swallowed, the digestive enzymes are released in the upper section of the stomach. TherActive delivery allows the probiotics to safely bypass the acid environment of the stomach. Once reaching the ideal pH of the small intestine, TherActive Delivery releases the probiotics allowing them to colonize and establish healthy microflora balance.
Dave Barton, Enzymedica's Director of Education, shares, "Before TherActive Delivery, probiotics encapsulated with enzymes were left vulnerable to enzymatic activity in the capsule, not to mention the potential for die-off in their passage through the stomach acid. For guaranteed activity and stability, TherActive is the delivery you can trust."
