Probiotics are the healthy flora that reside in our digestive tract. These organisms support regularity, aid the immune system, produce vitamins like B and K, and fuel our digestion through their production of enzymes, including lactase, protease, and amylase. The enzymes made by the flora work synergistically with our own inherent enzymes to support optimal wellbeing and digestive health.
Probiotics are active cultures which must make their way through various obstacles in their journey to the gastrointestinal tract. These live organisms then take up residence and provide benefits. First, they must stand up to the exposure to light, heat and moisture on the shelf. After consumption, they must withstand harsh stomach acid and other digestive fluids.
Digest Gold + Probiotics combines Enzymedica's award winning digestive enzyme formula with 500 million cultures of specially coated (TherActive™) probiotics. This delivery system is not an encapsulation process--it is a coating that allows for maximum performance and preservation of probiotics. Superior to standard time release mechanisms, TherActive™ delivery ensures release in the alkaline pH of the lower intestine, guaranteeing potency, delivering healthy bacteria into the intestinal tract for optimal benefit.
Combining enzymes and probiotics is ideal. Digest Gold + Probiotics provides complete digestive care in the convenience of a single capsule dose.
