Digestion is of primary importance to health. An under active digestive system does not absorb the nutrients the body needs, either from food or from supplements. Complete Digestion is a broad spectrum digestive enzyme supplement that supports health and digestion in a multitude of ways.
Without digestive enzymes, the body cannot break down proteins into their constituent amino acids. In addition to being imperative for mineral absorption, these amino acids are also the building blocks from which cells, anti-bodies, hormones and enzymes are built. If the body does not produce enough enzymes, it cannot break down protein sufficiently to manufacture more enzymes. Supplementary enzymes can help to break this vicious cycle.
Complete Digestion continues to support digestion in the intestines with the addition of protease, a complex enzyme that digests proteins, amylases (for digesting starches) and lipases (for digesting fats). Complete Digestion adds plant enzymes, to further assist with the breakdown of proteins. The digestive aids peppermint and ginger are also included to soothe the gastrointestinal tract and reduce flatulence.
