Digestive Harmony Ingredients
B. subtilis is often used as a probiotic preparation in the treatment or prevention of intestinal disorders. It is not considered pathogenic or toxigenic to humans. Bacillus subtilis improves host health and longevity. Bacillus subtilis is a spore former and survives the stomach acid.
Bacillus coagulans (B. coagulans) has recently attracted the attention of researchers and food manufacturers, as it exhibits characteristics of both the Bacillus and Lactobacillus genera. B. coagulans is a spore-forming bacterium which is resistant to high temperatures with its probiotic activity and survives the stomach acid.
Bifidobacterium animalis ssp. Lactis
Bifidobacterium animalis probiotics are used to improve digestion and restore normal flora. Probiotics have been used to treat bowel problems (such as diarrhea, irritable bowel), eczema, vaginal yeast infections, lactose intolerance, and urinary tract infections.
Lactobacillus acidophilus is a type of bacteria found in your intestines. It’s a member of the Lactobacillus genus of bacteria, and it plays an important role in human health. Lactobacilli, particularly L. acidophilus, are often used as probiotics. L. acidophilus has been extensively studied as a probiotic, and evidence has shown that it may provide a number of health benefits.
Lactobacillus plantarum is a gram positive lactic acid bacterium commonly found in fermented food and in the gastrointestinal tract and is commonly used in the food industry as a potential starter probiotic. Recently, the consumption of food together with probiotics has tremendously increased. Plantarum is gaining increasing significance as a probiotic. With the newly acclaimed gut-heart-brain axis, strains of L. plantarum have proven to be a valuable species for the development of probiotics, with various beneficial effects on gut health, metabolic disorders and brain health.
Rhamnosus is a type of friendly bacteria naturally found in your gut. Its health benefits include relieving IBS symptoms, treating diarrhea, strengthening your gut health and protecting against cavities. L. rhamnosus is available as a probiotic supplement and found in some dairy products.
Artichoke (Cyanara scolymus) Powder (Leaf)
Artichokes are an antioxidant rich, healthy whole food that is high in fiber. It's particularly high in insoluble fiber. This is the type that doesn't absorb water and bulks your stool. Research shows that taking artichoke extract by mouth can reduce symptoms of indigestion such as nausea, vomiting, flatulence and stomach pain.
Ginger (Zingiber officinale Rosc.) Powder (Rhizome)
Ginger (Zingiber officinale) is one of the most widely used natural products consumed as a spice and medicine for treating nausea, dysentery, heartburn, flatulence, diarrhea, loss of appetite, infections, cough and bronchitis.
Papayas contain an enzyme called papain that aids digestion; in fact, it can be used as a meat tenderizer. Papaya is also high in fiber and water content, both of which help to prevent constipation and promote regularity and a healthy digestive tract. Some of the benefits are as follows: It may help ease sore throat. It may reduce pain and inflammation. It aids digestion. It helps heal wounds. It eases muscle soreness. It may help relieve shingles symptoms. Papain is a proteolytic enzyme that does the “break-dance” on proteins, specifically meat protein. It is often used as a meat tenderizer because it can hydrolyze the peptide bonds of collagen, elastin and actomyosin.
Lipase is a digestive enzyme that boosts the absorption of fat in the body by breaking it down into glycerol and free fatty acids. Some studies show that supplementing with lipase may decrease feelings of fullness. Lipase has the crucial function of breaking fats down into fatty acids and glycerol, products that can be carried in water-based fluids like blood and lymph. These components are used throughout the body to provide energy. There are some types of lipase with more specific roles as well. The benefits of lipase are: Helping relieve irritable bowel syndrome. Helps in absorption of nutrients in people with cystic fibrosis. Helps in the absorption of nutrients in the small intestine in people with coeliac disease. Breaks down fats in the body in people with a non-functioning or removed gallbladder. Helps with unhealthy cholesterol levels & cardiovascular health issues. Helps with poor nutrient absorption. May help with weight loss.
Amylase enzymes are made by the pancreas and salivary glands. They help break down carbs so that they are easily absorbed by the body. That's why it's often recommended to chew food thoroughly before swallowing, as amylase enzymes in saliva help break down carbs for easier digestion and absorption. Amylase is one of the three main and most vital enzymes the body utilizes to digest food. Amylase has the responsibility of helping your body process carbohydrates into simple sugars while protease breaks down protein and lipase is in charge of fat breakdown. Therefore, its benefits are as follows: It improves the digestion of carbohydrates. It helps the body develop more energy. It helps with blood sugar balance for people with diabetes.
Proteolytic enzymes have many important functions in the body, including helping break down food for energy and are found in certain foods and supplements. Studies suggest that they can improve digestion, decrease inflammation, ease arthritis pain and possibly reduce symptoms related to IBS. Proteolytic enzymes are a group of compounds that helps the body break down food. They have been used to ease digestion. They have also been used to ease pain and promote healing in skin, muscle and joint problems. Proteolytic enzymes can be taken as a pill. Proteolytic enzymes are said to have many health benefits, including: Supporting a healthy immune system. Promoting healing of tissues. Encouraging muscle recovery. Aiding in digestive function (particularly in the digestion of proteins). According to the Winchester Hospital Health Library, “The primary use of proteolytic enzymes is as a digestive aid for people who have trouble digesting proteins. However, proteolytic enzymes may also be absorbed internally to some extent and may reduce pain and inflammation.
