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.

Amazing

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

By NicoleP

from USA

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!
