How is it delivered?
DigestMAX ULTRA contains powdered enzymes in vegetable capsules.
What does it do?
When DigestMAX ULTRA is taken with a meal, it works to break down food products into their smallest usable components (nutrients). This allows the body to absorb the maximum amount of nutrients from your meal. When food is effectively broken down, the overall function of the digestive system is improved, including a reduction in the amount of gas produced.
How does it work?
DigestMAX ULTRA contains digestive enzymes. Enzymes are catalysts for chemical reactions within the body. Without them, food is not broken down properly. Many people do not produce enough enzymes, therefore they are unable to absorb all of the nutrients from the food they are eating. This leads to symptoms such as gas, bloating, heartburn, constipation, and is the first step toward more chronic disease.
DigestMAX ULTRA contains enzymes which address every type of food group including; protein, fat, carbohydrate, dairy, fibre and sugar. The elements in DigestMAX ULTRA enhance digestion beyond what the body is normally capable of. This combination of enzymes functions under the whole range of gastric pH's from 2-14.
DigestMAX ULTRA also includes the enzymes Phytase and Pectinase, which break down harmful phytates, which can cause malabsorption. Phytates are found in seeds, grains, and beans. Phytates have been shown in clinical studies to block the absorption of many minerals, especially calcium. This can be problematic for vegetarians, as these foods are staples in their diet. By breaking down phytates, DigestMAX Ultra eliminates this problem.
DigestMAX Ultra also contains the enzymes Cellulase, Hemicellulase and Xylanase which the human body is unable to produce. These enzymes break down plant fibres, which cause gas and bloating.
If undigested foods reach the large intestine, it becomes fuel for the “bad” bacteria in your intestinal tract. These “bad” bacteria will putrefy the undigested food, releasing volatile fatty acids and gasses that cause bloating and often foul smelling gas. If you provide your body with enough enzymes to break down all of your food, then the “bad” bacteria will have nothing to ‘eat', and bloating and gas diminish.
Adults: 1 capsule with each meal, to a maximum of 3 capsules a day. Take with first bite of food / meal.
