Digestive Enzymes 101 - The Key to Better Health

What are enzymes?

Enzymes are proteins that help speed up our metabolism and the chemical reactions in our bodies. They build some substances and break down others. All living things require enzymes to survive.

Our bodies naturally produce enzymes. Enzymes can also be found in the foods that we eat (like whole foods and fresh fruits and vegetables). When food is cooked, processed or preserved, natural enzymes are destroyed, requiring our body to work overtime to produce enzymes to digest what we consume.

What do enzymes do?

One of the most important roles of enzymes is to aid in digestion. Digestion is the process of turning the food that we all eat into energy. There are enzymes in our saliva, pancreas, intestines and stomach. These enzymes break down fats, proteins and carbohydrates. Enzymes then use these nutrients for growth and cell repair.

Enzymes also help with:

  • Breathing.

  • Building muscle.

  • Nerve function.

  • Ridding our bodies of toxins.

What are some examples of enzymes?

There are thousands of individual enzymes in the body. Each type of enzyme only has one job. For example, the enzyme (sucrase) breaks down a sugar called sucrose. Lactase breaks down lactose, a kind of sugar found in milk products.

What Are Digestive Enzymes Used For?

As mentioned earlier, digestive enzymes help break down the food we consume, so our body can get the most nutrients possible. As our body ages, enzyme production decreases, which can cause a host of digestive issues; everything from high cholesterol and blood sugar, gout and even lactose intolerance can be traced back to low levels of enzymes. When our body’s natural enzyme production is disrupted, digestive issues can begin to wreak havoc on our health and wellbeing, sometimes surfacing overnight.

Without proper digestive enzyme production, our body can also become malnourished in more severe conditions where digestive enzymes aren’t produced or used efficiently. Over time, this can cause issues like osteoporosis.

Over-the-counter (OTC) enzyme supplements may be useful in cases where diet and/or body enzyme production is below levels needed to maintain healthy digestion.

Health E80 (OTC) Enzymes:

There are literally hundreds of enzyme products on the market today. How can anyone possibly know which enzyme supplement is right for them? While some digestive supplements work a little, most don’t work at all. There are a couple of different reasons for this, which we will discuss further.

The two most common factors in enzyme supplement effectiveness is pH and co-mineral activation.

First: Our digestive enzyme formula has been proven effective through testing in the lab at varying pH levels. While most digestive enzymes are destroyed in the gut, our formula uses varying Aspergillus strands which are highly tolerant to acidic conditions. Formulators were able to create a product that remains active in pH levels as acidic as 1.7 and as alkaline as pH 11.

Second: Our digestive enzyme blend took a research team 8 years to formulate and a patent was obtained based on its highly effective formulation. Exact mineral co-factoring was the key (or secret sauce) that made E80 a true game changer! Our patented formula of 8 enzymes contains more than 72 organic minerals and some selected macro minerals to act as co-factors to “trigger” the enzymes into action once digested. The cost to receive this patent was in the lofty 6 figures. No other company has a patent for their digestive enzyme supplementation because of these critical factors.

This combination of enzymes and activating minerals enhances the assimilation capabilities of your own body by ensuring that the nutrients ingested are completely broken down, 100%.

Health E80 is a patented digestive enzyme formulation specifically designed to aid in the digestion of all foods including proteins, carbohydrates, starches, fats, fibers and all forms of sugars. Our ultimate goal should be to get the foods we eat broken down into their smallest components for absorption of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients.

Reserve your bottle today and starting reaping the rewards of better digestion and nutrient absorption. LINK
