Digesting Food Isn't the Same Anymore
It took 20 years to finally have to make a change to this formula because it was so far ahead of the game. Come 2019, Digestion needed to adjust in response to modern day growing techniques and all the processing that goes into food before it hits grocery stores.
Plants have responded to all these changes by tightening and thickening their molecular bonds. This means food is harder to break down. The number one reason people visit hospitals is for digestive disorders and pain. One in three people have a digestive disorder they deal with on a daily basis. Most times, digestive issues don’t need to go so far as a hospital visit. You can fix it by eating healthier and properly digesting food.
When you cook food at 118ºF or above, it destroys digestive enzymes. And when you lose those enzymes, it becomes solely your body’s job to figure out how to break down cooked and/or processed food. A lack of enzymes causes the pain, indigestions, bloating, gas, allergies, and so on you experience as your body struggles to break down food for nutrients. Chronically suffering from digestive disorders leads to disease.
Dipeptidal dipeptidase has been added to help break down those tighter, thicker gluten bonds. A special form of pH balanced lactase has been added for lactose in dairy.
Understanding What Your Body Does with Food
Your body doesn’t run on proteins, carbs and fats. It runs on glucose, amino acids, fatty acids and so on. The latter is what your body breaks proteins, carbs and fats down into for use. If you don’t digest proteins and break them down into amino acids, then you’re looking at developing arthritis. If your body struggles to digest red meat, pork and shellfish, then you develop gout. If you don’t digest carbs and break them down into glucose and so on, then you develop diabetes. If you don’t digest fats and break them down into fatty acids, you’ll eventually develop heart disease. Indigestion is the non-digestion of foods. Indigestive symptoms are your warning signs.
Disease happens when digestion doesn’t. Undigested foods don’t fuel your system. Instead, your body expends excess energy trying to squeeze nutrients out of undigested food. Digestion is your body’s top-priority function. This puts a strain on your system, thus the end result being disease.
Nutrients have to be delivered at the cellular level, the level at which your body operates. That’s why a mini dose of Digestion is included in every other powder-based product.
Digestive Enzymes Keep You Healthy and Well Fed
You need a complete blend of pure plant enzymes, organic minerals and stabilized probiotics to ensure digestion. So yes, you can supplement with Optimal 1 Digestion to improve the efficacy of other products, including synthetic medications. You’ll get better absorption, too.
Digestive enzymes provide the missing tools your body needs to properly digest foods and absorb nutrients for energy and vitality. Antacids and acid blockers attack stomach acid production. The latter products say, “Ease symptoms” somewhere on the label. Nowhere does it say, “Ease the cause.”
On top of that, they come with health risks when used long term, including infection, bone fractures and dementia. And since you’re stopping your body from trying to digest what you’ve eaten, you also inhibit nutrient absorption, promote bacterial overgrowth, reduce resistance to infection and increase the risk of cancer and other serious diseases. Your gut is your second immune system, and that include stomach acid.
The Complete Digestion Process
- Digestion (this actually takes place in your gut, and minimally in your stomach)
- Assimilation (Once enzymes break food into manageable pieces—nutrients—probiotics grab ahold of nutrient molecules and help them pass through the gut wall and into your blood stream)
- Utilization (Organic minerals take over for probiotics and metabolize them at the cellular level
