Isotonix® Digestive Enzymes with Probiotics

Enzymes are important for the body’s proper absorption and utilization of food. Over time, the body’s ability to make certain enzymes reduces as part of the natural aging process. Many scientists now believe that maintaining normal levels of key enzymes is important to maintaining overall health. Enzymes are responsible for every activity of life. Digestive and metabolic are the two primary classifications of enzymes within the body. Proteases (aids in digesting protein), amylases (aids in digesting carbohydrates), and lipases (aids in digesting fats) are the three primary digestive enzymes, which function as the biological catalyst to breaking down food. In today’s world of processed and fast foods, the body must work harder to break down food and absorb the nutrients. Poor eating habits, such as improper or inadequate chewing and eating on the run contribute to reduced levels of digestive enzymes. In addition to a reduction in essential enzymes, poor eating habits, some medications and illness deplete the body’s probiotics, which are necessary for maintaining a healthy digestive tract and promoting a healthy immune system.

 

Isotonix Digestive Enzyme Formula with Probiotics is an isotonic-capable food supplement that is made from a combination of DigeZyme®, a blend of amylase, protease, cellulase, lactase, and lipase, and Lactospore®, the probiotic Lactobacillus sporogenes, and potassium, magnesium, maltase and sucrase, designed to replenish essential digestive enzymes and probiotics, contributing to good digestive health. Isotonix Digestive Enzyme Formula helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels, promotes digestion and absorption of nutrients, supports a healthy digestive tract, supports a healthy immune system and may help ease occasional stomach upset. DigeZyme is a multi-enzyme complex consisting mainly of amylase (starch hydrolyzing enzyme), protease (protein hydrolyzing enzyme) and lipase (fat hydrolyzing enzymes). In addition to these, it also contains cellulase (that hydrolyzes cellulose) and lactase (that hydrolyzes lactose). The enzymes in this complex are of microbial origin (fungal amylase, lipase, lactase, cellulase; and a bacterial neutral protease). The product is, therefore, entirely of non-animal origin. Lactospore, a preparation containing viable spores of L. sporogenes, has been used in successful clinical trials in the management of gastrointestinal issues, mild lactose intolerance and supporting healthy immune functions.

FAQ

What are digestive enzymes?

Digestive enzymes are special catalytic proteins that help your body break down food to utilize the complete spectrum of nutrients in the food we eat. Unfortunately, food enzymes, which are sensitive to heat, are usually inactivated when food is cooked to serve. This leaves your body with the challenge of trying to break down foods for absorption into your system with no help from the natural enzymes that would otherwise be present in many of the foods we eat. While your body can break down foods with no help, it may put additional strain on your system. Isotonix Digestive Enzyme Formula with Probiotics acts to supplement and maximize the activity of the body’s own enzymes and the "friendly" bacteria our bodies need in an easy-to-take, pleasant-tasting drink.

 

Our lifestyles and diets are constantly changing. If the last 25 years are any indication, these changes are not usually for the best. Foods that would otherwise offer us their own added enzymes to help our bodies absorb more nutrients are increasingly processed, heated for extended shelf life and stripped of vital elements. The problem is that in making increasing numbers of foods "safe" for ingestion, we are in some cases making foods less healthy for our systems. This means our bodies now need to work harder to absorb the same nutritional content as it may have just a few years ago. Isotonix Digestive Enzyme Formula with Probiotics helps your body replenish all the essential enzymes and "good" bacteria necessary for maximum absorption of nutrients from the food we eat.*

What are enzymes?

Enzymes are the workhorses of our cells. They are proteins that catalyze many thousands of biochemical reactions in the body. While most enzymes work inside our cells, digestive enzymes operate outside the cells in the gastrointestinal tract. The start of digestion begins with digestive enzymes secreted by salivary gland cells into our mouths. Cells lining the gastrointestinal tract also contribute enzymes, such as pepsin in the stomach. In addition, digestive enzymes are produced in the pancreas and are emptied into the upper part of the small intestine.

 

These enzymes help to break apart proteins, allowing the body to optimize its effort to digest proteins from plant and animal sources, as well as break down starch, lactose, fats, and nucleic acids (DNA and RNA). The result is a more complete digestive process, resulting in better nutritional absorption.

Isotonix Digestive Enzyme Formula with Probiotics supplies natural plant enzymes that are not inactivated by stomach acid. What this means is that the supplemental enzymes mix with and work in concert with the ingested food, and begin to work with the body’s own digestive enzymes to release as many of the nutrients as possible.  

What are probiotics?

Probiotics are beneficial organisms that promote a healthy intestinal tract environment. Probiotics can help support the body in maintaining proper digestive functions and improving emotional health. Lactobacillus sporogenes bacteria reside mostly in the large intestine and help break down undigested food. These "friendly" bacteria can help the absorption of vitamins and minerals, and can actually synthesize some vitamins, such as biotin and vitamin K. In addition, these beneficial bacteria contribute to the breaking down of fibers and undigested starch into simple sugars. These simple sugars then function as fuel for the cells that line the large intestine.

 

What happens when we eat?

Even before we eat our body‘s digestive action begins to take place. Simply smelling food activates our salivary glands ("mouth watering"). As the food enters the stomach, the stomach acid and pepsin work together to begin breaking the food down into material the small intestine (where most nutritients are absorbed) can use. Enzymes specific to each of the three nutrient groups are released at this stage, further breaking down the food, and contributing to the digestive and absorption processes. These processes continue into the large intestine until the food’s nutritional content is extracted by the body.

 

What are the three basic and four specialty food enzymes?

There are three basic food enzymes that help us digest our food. Each has a specific function and purpose, and each is necessary for the releasing of nutrients into our bodies. They are: protease (which digests proteins), amylase (which digests starch) and lipase (which digests fats). The specialty enzymes are: lactase (for the sugar lactose in dairy products), maltase (for the sugar maltose in foods), sucrase (for table sugar and fruit), and cellulase (which helps us digest cellulose fibers). Each of these enzymes plays a significant part in the body"s overall health by helping to release specific and necessary nutrients into our bodies.

 

What are the "good" bacteria?

We all know that chlorine in our water supply kills bacteria, making water safe to drink. That’s good, but all bacteria are not harmful. In fact, if it weren’t for "good" bacteria, we would be unable to digest food. Many people, especially women, know the importance of having "good" bacteria in their system, and many actually take supplements like Lactobacillus acidophilus to keep healthy. IsotonixDigestive Enzyme Formula with Probiotics contains Probiotic bacteria called Lactobacillus sporogenes, designed to help replenish the "good" bacteria that can be harmed by things like the ingestion of chlorinated water and antibiotics. These "friendly" bacteria help to repopulate the colon, displacing harmful bacteria, and promote an appropriate pH balance.*

Comments about Isotonix® Digestive Enzymes with Probiotics:

I know there are a lot of women out there who have irregular systems like myself. This product helps keep you regular and never feeling bloated. My Mom was visiting from Arizona and had forgotten her probiotics. I told her to try mine. She did and after a couple days that she felt better than she had in months (since a colonoscopy) She went online and ordered her own bottle as soon as she got home.

Love it

Comments about Isotonix® Digestive Enzymes with Probiotics:

I had been on a Candida diet for a few months and was slowly reintroducing foods. One evening I went to dinner and "cheated" with bread and a wonderful goat cheese cheesecake and took the enzymes while I was eating. I had no adverse reactions for putting a sugar and bread into a "clean" system. This stuff is amazing. I also take it at night for overall digestive health and for the price, it's truly awesome.

Digestive Enzymes - Get them now!

By AngelaB

from USA

Comments about Isotonix® Digestive Enzymes with Probiotics:

This product is changing my digestive system. It tastes great and is easy to take. I was in the hospital with numerous stomach and digestive issues. I started taking these enzymes with probiotics and my stomach has been amazingly well 98% of the time since my realease from the hospital. This has allowed me to get off of my numerous medications that I was placed on "just to get me through" my stay in the hospital without having a real diagnosis. I am now medication free and strictly using my isotonic products! What a difference two months makes!
