What Is It?
Digestase 2.0 is a new and improved vegetarian enzyme formula containing a mixture of seven types of enzymes: amylase digests long-chain polysaccharides, proteases digest complex proteins, lipase digests fats, and invertase digests sucrose. New additions to Digestase 2.0 include cellulase which digests cellulose fibres, lactase which digests lactose, and alpha galactosidase which digests oligosaccharides (like those found in beans and legumes). Since different proteases and lipases operate under varying pH levels, Digestase 2.0 also includes two sources each of proteases and lipases to ensure the broadest range of enzymatic activity possible.
What Does It Do?Primary Uses: Digestase 2.0 improves digestion, alleviating the gastrointestinal burden of digesting food, increasing the absorption of nutrients and reducing bloating and gas production from hard-to-digest foods. Supporting the breakdown of problematic foods may also help to reduce intestinal inflammation and auto-immune disorders related to digestion.
Secondary Uses: Enzymes also help reduce inflammation and speed up tissue recovery. For example, athletes and patients undergoing surgery recover more quickly if they are prescribed enzymes.
Who Should Take It?
Those who experience digestive discomfort, who are looking to improve gastrointestinal health, those with auto-immune or inflammatory intestinal conditions and athletes can benefit from Digestase 2.0.
Take 1 capsule three times daily with food, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner.
