Description

Eating a nutrient-dense whole food diet is super important, for all the nutrients it provides to allow your body to survive and flourish. You can only access these great nutrients though if you can break down and absorb them through your digestive tract and into your body. If not, those nutrients are essentially being flushed right through your digestive tract and into the toilet! Full Spectrum Plant Enzymes can greatly increase your ability to maximize the benefits of your food and your health.

Enzymes speed up reactions. There are thousands of enzymes filling thousands of roles throughout the body. In digestion, enzymes are required to help break bigger molecules down into smaller components, making nutrients easier to absorb into the bloodstream or lymphatic system. Plant enzymes are a type of digesting enzyme that is naturally found in the foods you eat. Whether in our digestive system or while rotting, the right type of enzyme is contained in the plant to break down the items’ nutrients.

Plant enzymes are part of your digestive team, along with digestive juices like stomach acid, bile and pancreatic enzymes, and microbes that live all throughout your digestive system. When any of these players are deficient, it can greatly affect the quality of digestion and absorption. If these nutrients are not broken down, all sorts of digestive upset can occur. A feeling of fullness, excess burping, bloating or flatulence, abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea can all be connected to improperly digested foods. Undigested foods can also feed undesirable microbes, contributing to overgrowth of bacteria or fungi. We are also not absorbing the nutrients into the body, contributing to nutritional deficiencies. Not really the point of eating great food!

All these digestive players can become deficient for many reasons. Chronic stress or eating while stressed or multitasking, dehydration, liver overload, excess refined carbohydrates, certain medications or treatments, antibiotics and gallbladder removal can all contribute. Parasites, food allergies or intolerances, white sugar, or undigested foods can all contribute to damage of the intestinal lining, which greatly affects digestion and absorption. Digestive strength also naturally decrease with age.

Your diet may be deficient in plant enzymes, as they are destroyed with cooking or heating over 118°F. While on one hand cooking can make foods easier to digest, on the other it can deplete the innate enzymes that help us break down the nutrients. A diet high in cooked, processed, or not-fresh raw foods does not provide the plant enzymes required to help your own digestive juices break down nutrients for absorption.

Taking plant enzymes with meals can support your digestive capacity, increase absorption and decrease digestive symptoms. Organika’s Full Spectrum Plant Enzymes come in a convenient, easy-to-swallow capsule and are formulated with a full range of enzymes to cover all the macronutrients:

– Amylase (as alpha-amylase and amyloglucosidase) to break down carbohydrates into simple sugars
– Protease to break down proteins into amino acids
– Lipase to break down fats into fatty acids
– Plus Lactase to specifically break down the sugars in dairy
– Plus Cellulase and hemicellulase to break down fibre

Unlike conventional digestive aids, plant enzymes not only ease unpleasant digestive symptoms – such as nausea, diarrhea, upset stomach and inflammation – but they also help our bodies absorb nutrients better. The result is improved digestion, higher nutrient absorption and a healthier body that is less susceptible to infection, fatigue and degenerative diseases.

FAQ:

Q: What’s the difference between a plant enzyme and a pancreatic enzyme?
A: Plant enzymes are naturally found in plants, and start working as soon as you start chewing your food. In supplement form, they are produced by various types of fungi. Pancreatic enzymes are normally produced by your pancreas and secreted into your small intestines, therefore they don’t start working until after your stomach empties into the small intestines. Supplemental pancreatic enzymes are sourced from pigs, therefore not compatible with vegan or vegetarian diets.

Q: What’s the difference between taking plant enzymes or an antacid to get rid of indigestion?
A: Antacids can provide temporary symptomatic relief, but are actually negatively affecting your digestive function by bringing up the pH in your stomach. This decreases your absorption, without addressing the reason for the discomfort. Taking plant enzymes actually increases digestion, getting rid of the cause of the pain.

Q: What turns on the plant enzymes in my body?
A: Heat, proper pH, and moisture. Body temperature is ideal for turning on enzymes (but they are destroyed at temperatures over 118oF, which includes most of our cooking). Plant enzymes can be active with pH levels from 3 to 7, which corresponds with most areas of your digestive tract. And water from chewing and saliva provides H2O for adding to the new smaller molecules. Ideally, all those are the norm when you eat, turning on the plant enzymes well.

Q: What does the pH range signify? Why is it so broad?
A: pH is the measurement of acid strength. Throughout your digestive tract, the pH varies, from pH of 2 in the stomach to pH of 8 in the duodenum. The large pH range of Organika’s Full Spectrum Plant Enzymes allows them to work in many places throughout the digestive tract.

Q: How else can I increase my nutrient absorption?
A: Eat mindfully. Stop and pay attention to the smells, get your mouth salivating. Chew, chew, chew. Eat slowly. Don’t overdo liquid intake with food, but drink ample in between meals. Eat meals or snacks, but avoid grazing. Avoid eating at least 2 hours before bed, and take 12 hours off without food overnight. These are all simple techniques to help our digestive system turn on more effectively.
