This is what Biosphere have to tell us about Digestive Aid
Biosphere Digestive Aid combines a range of digestive and immune supporting ingredients in an easy to mix single serve packet. Using only well researched, bioavailable ingredients to ensure optimal absorption.
Digestion is the process of turning food into fuel for energy, growth and cell repair. Our digestive system consists of a series of organs that helps break down food into smaller absorbable nutrients and eliminates unwanted waste.
The health of your digestive system has a lot to do with lifestyle - the food you eat, the amount of exercise you get and the pace and stress level of your day. As we age the digestive system starts to slow down and breaking down food for key nutrients becomes a lot more difficult.
A huge amount of immune system cells reside in our gastrointestinal tract which are directly influenced by the health of ones gut flora.
Symptoms of digestion problems
Poor digestion may show itself in the short term through:
- Abdominal pain
As we age, our digestion declines to the point where we are producing less stomach acid, digestive enzymes and our gut flora start to decline. While some of this is unavoidable, we can prolong and slow down declines with a healthy diet and lifestyle.
After an extended period with poor digestion, your body may not be getting the nutrients it needs which can cause some long term signs such as :
Without optimal digestion, one may experience a drop in energy and sub-optimal bodily functions, as well as a range of digestive issues.
The ingredients in Biosphere Digestive Aid
Digestive enzymes: DigeSEB plus, a complete plant based digestive enzyme complex that contains a powerful combination of proteases, carbohydrases and lipases. This combination helps break down a broad spectrum of foods, including legumes, milk, soy, cereal grains, meat and more.
Black Pepper Fruit Extract (BioPerine): Stimulates the release of digestive enzymes from the pancreas to improve the breakdown of food while enhancing the digestive capacity and significantly reduces the gastrointestinal food transit time. Black pepper also has a synergistic effect with curcumin, improving the absorption and resulting in an overall greater anti-inflammatory effect.
Curcumin (95% extract): Curcumin is a powerful anti-inflammatory for the mucous membranes that coat the intestines. Helps to stimulate the gall bladder to produce more bile, in turn, improving digestion, bloating and discomfort.
Aloe vera (Leaf powder): Aloe vera offers natural healing and detoxifying powers while working gently with the intestinal tract to help break down impacted food residues and thoroughly cleanse the bowel. It can also help fight inflammation, promote regular bowel movements and reduce discomfort and bloating.
Zinc (bisglycinate chelate) : Zinc is required for growth and healing of cells, especially important for our intestinal cells that have an extremely high turnover rate. Zinc also supports over 300 enzymes, including the ones in our stomach that help break down food, helping our digestion. Zinc bisglycinate chelate has been used as a preferred form of absorbable zinc.
Prebiotic Fibre: PreticX, a well researched non-digestible xylooligiosaccharide to help boost levels of beneficial bacteria in the human gut. This fibre helps support and grow our own probiotic bacteria that stimulate our gut activity. PreticX has been shown to increase bifidobacteria.
Glutamine (Sustamine): Considered a preferred fuel for the cells lining the mucosa of the small intestine. It acts as an anti-inflammatory, supports the growth and repair of the intestinal lining, as well as coating and protecting cell walls from irritants.
Per sachet: Xylo-oligosacharide (PreticX) 1000mg, Turmeric extract (Curcumin 95%) 50mg, L-Alanyl L-Glutamine (Sustamine) 50mg, Aloe vera leaf powder 50mg, Black pepper extract (BioPerine) 10mg, Zinc (as zinc bisglycinate chelate) 7.5mg, DigeSEB Plus (Enzyme blend) 300mg consisting of Amylase, Protease blend I & II, Lactase, Lipase, HemiSEB (hemicellulase), Cellulase, Invertase and Diatase, Sodium 94mg, Potassium 161mg.
