Digestive Helper™ is a broad spectrum digestive enzyme formula that is designed to help the body break down a variety of foods. This includes the digestion of dietary proteins, dairy, and gluten -- foods that may provoke food sensitivity and intolerance.*
Digesting the food you eat properly is a top priority of health. Digestive Helper™ can help you break down, absorb, and make optimal use of the foods you eat. It also helps to reduce gas, bloating, and indigestion.*
Benefits and Types of Enzymes
Wellness Resources® Digestive Helper™ contains high-potency, pure plant enzymes for digesting all types of food. Our many years of experience have shown that plant enzymes are the top choice for assisting digestion. These unique enzymes are active over a wide pH (3 to 9), and work in the upper portion of the stomach for a full hour after meal consumption.*
Unlike other enzymes such as hydrochloric acid or pancreatic enzymes, our enzymes are designed to assist digestion of a very broad array of foods. The proteases digest protein. The amylase, glucoamylase, invertase, maltase and lactase digest carbohydrate and sugars. Lipase digests fats. Cellulase breaks down fiber.*
Many of the symptoms of indigestion (gas, bloating, heartburn) may be caused by a lack of digestive power. Also, the acid and alkali components of food may begin to react and form gas, resulting in bloating. Incompletely digested food may 'back up' causing heartburn. Oftentimes, a boost of digestive power will help get the whole process on track.*
In addition to our enzymes, we have added various herbs (DGL licorice, ginger, and slippery elm) that are soothing to the digestive tract. Ginger also helps bring warmth and circulation to the digestive tract. This combination is helpful for individuals in a weakened condition or those who lack appetite.*
Dairy Protein and Gluten Digestion
Digestive Helper™ may help you improve your tolerance to various foods. It is especially helpful where the natural process of digestion may be lacking the enzymes to properly break down the proteins in foods that are eaten.*
Gluten is found in wheat, barley, rye, and oats. It is composed of two proteins, gliadin and glutenin, that are sometimes difficult to digest. Our special peptidase enzyme helps to break down the proline-containing peptides found in these proteins. Additionally, this formula helps to break down the common dairy protein (casein).*
BioCore DPP-IV® Enzymes
Digestive Helper™ includes special enzymes that enhance DPP IV activity in the digestive tract, which is an important stage of digestion for breaking down gluten and casein. These enzymes are also able to survive stomach acid, so are useful where needed. By using digestive enzymes to help break down food more completely, food sensitivity is less likely.*
How to Take Enzymes
Digestive enzymes are typically taken before eating, 1-2 capsules per meal. Higher amounts may be taken as needed. Some common times to use these enzymes are if you are eating a larger meal, or if you are rushed, stressed, or tired when eating. All of these situations make normal digestion more challenging. You may take the enzymes with every meal or on an as needed basis. For example, you may take the enzymes after eating or after noticing some signs of indigestion.*
