Digest-Ease has a combination of prebiotics and probiotics, which creates a symbiosis when ingested together, and supports the digestive system while reducing symptoms of conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Prebiotics are carbohydrates that your body cannot digest, but are a source of food for your gut’s healthy bacteria. Prebiotics are consumed by probiotics and fermented in the gut – Inulin promotes gut health and improves fat metabolism and calcium absorption. Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) can decrease pathogenic bacteria found in the gut and facilitates the absorption of magnesium.
Probiotics are live yeasts and healthy bacteria that live in your body, they are living organisms essential for the healthy functioning of the gut that may relieve diarrhea and assist with irritable bowel syndrome. They may be linked to improve lactose intolerance and reduced cholesterol levels. It’s advisable to take probiotics when taking antibiotics, as they restore healthy gut microbes lost through antibiotic therapy.
Turmeric and the bioactive component of turmeric, curcumin, are components of Digest-Ease, with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and immune boosting properties. Curcumin is a bright yellow chemical produced by plants and is a member of the ginger family. Used in cooking for centuries, curcumin can improve conditions such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. It may also reduce insulin sensitivity, normalize blood pressure, and reduce high cholesterol.
Digest-Ease also contains digestive enzymes that assist in metabolising carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, and help in the absorption of nutrients.
