Nutrigest digestion is a potent combination of hydrochloric acid (HCl), digestive pancreatic enzymes and ox bile to help support digestion in the stomach and small intestine
HCl aims to support healthy stomach acid levels
Enzymes and ox bile are included to support the digestion of proteins, carbohydrates and fats
An acidic environment in the stomach is crucial for the breakdown (denaturing) of proteins
Adequate levels of HCl are also needed to stimulate the pancreas to secrete digestive enzymes
This occurs once the partially digested food mixture is released from the stomach into the small intestine
A low pH (acidic) is also vital for supporting immune function, as potentially harmful microbes cannot live in an acidic environment
Pancreatin is combined with pancrelipase providing a mixture of pancreatic enzymes including amylase, protease and lipase that help further break down food in the small intestine
Ox bile helps to emulsify (mix) the fats from food, helping them to be absorbed
Why choose Nutrigest Digestion Tablets?
It’s not just what we eat, but how well we can digest and actually absorb it that counts! If stomach acid levels fall too low this can result in difficulties digesting protein, and may also result in low levels of digestive enzymes and bile being secreted during the digestive process. A supplement containing HCl and pancreatic enzymes may be a very helpful way to support digestion.
Who is it suitable for?
As we age our bodies may produce less HCl. This can also occur in either acute or chronic illness. Nutrigest digestion is suitable for those who may have compromised digestive function, who may benefit from a broad-spectrum digestive support supplement to facilitate more optimum digestion and assimilation. Nutrigest digestion is not suitable for individuals with gastritis or ulcers
