Digestion System Support

Digestion System Support

Although the digestive system is often just associated with the stomach and intestines, it’s actually a lot more complicated than that.  To function at the optimal level, the digestive system requires peak performance from all of the parts of the GI tract (including stomach and intestines), as well as the liver, kidneys, and gallbladder.

Symptoms of digestive distress may include stomach or abdominal discomfort, belching, gas, feeling over full, and other issues.  Many essential oils support healthy digestion and ease discomfort.  Fennel, Ginger, and Peppermint are popularly used around the world for their digestive benefits.

DigestZen® Digestive Blend is a wonderful companion to aid in the digestion of food, soothe occasional upset stomachs, and reduce uncomfortable gas and bloating.  In addition, DigestZen nutritional supplements provide targeted solutions for optimal digestive function and comfort.

Compromised digestive function can result in energy deficiencies, lowered immunity, weight gain, and gastrointestinal discomfort.  You can support your digestive system by eating a healthy diet high in fiber, and by drinking plenty of water.  Taking a good probiotic (such as PB Assist®+) can also be helpful.

Our digestive tract has about 100 trillion probiotic bacteria, sometimes referred to as microbiota, microbiome, or microflora.  That’s 10 times more than the total number of cells that make up the entire human body! Our digestive system contains good or healthy bacteria that play a very important role in our digestive and immune health.

When we have the good, healthy bacteria, it can help lower the number of bad bacteria and provide an environment that is conducive for not only digestive health but immune health as well.  In order to promote microflora balance, many health experts recommend eating fermented foods like yogurt, sauerkraut, and kefir, but probiotic supplementation can also be very beneficial.

Digestzen® TerraZyme

The pancreas makes enzymes that the small intestines uses to break down food.  If you don’t make enough enzymes, you may experience discomfort.  Taking DigestZen TerraZyme with meals supports digestion and metabolism of enzyme-deficient, processed foods.

This carefully-researched digestive formula delivers the food enzymes that are most likely to be deficient in the modern-day diet.  Enzyme deficiency may cause digestive disruption or upset, including bloating, gas, or other symptoms.

The enzymes in this formula can help support more effective digestion of substances that are often difficult to process—such as lactose and processed foods—thus allowing your body to feel more comfortable during the digestive process.  It also speeds the conversion of food nutrients to cellular energy.

Each serving of this Digestive Enzyme Complex provides your body with 10 active whole-food enzymes and supporting mineral co-factors, all of which are required for healthy digestion.  These enzymes help with the digestion of proteins, fats, complex carbohydrates, sugars, and fiber.

Kids Digestion Support

Children can benefit from a healthy gut just as much if not more than adults.  It is important to populate the gut with good bacteria as early in the development years as possible.  Probiotic colonies start to develop as they pass through the birthing canal.  Then they develop even more through the mother’s breast milk.  By exposing them early and then by adding even more through supplementation, children can promote optimal microflora balance, long-term digestive and immune system health, and general overall well-being.

PB Assist Jr. is a powdered probiotic supplement designed for children or adults who have trouble swallowing pills.  It includes 5 billion live cells of a unique blend of six different probiotic strains, specifically selected for their benefits among children.  These probiotics have been blended into a delicious powder that can be poured directly into the mouth for a fun and tasty way to integrate probiotics into your daily routine.
