Catanzaro Supplements Digestion Formula is a comprehensive formula consisting of betaine hydrochloride, malic acid, and digestive enzymes to improve digestion and absorption of nutrients.
Betaine Hydrochloride is a delivery form of hydrochloric acid. It is used in cases of hypochlorhydria. In the stomach, the hydrochloric acid converts pepsinogen to pepsin, an enzyme that breaks down protein. It is recommended for a wide variety of problems, including asthma, digestive problems, excess candida, food allergies, hay fever, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and many other conditions.
Malic Acid is the foundation for cellular energy production as it has an oxygen sparing effect thus supporting healthy energy levels especially during anaerobic conditions. It ensures proper functioning of nerves, muscles and heart, can reduce discomfort in muscles and is indicated for fibromyalgia. Malic Acid has been found to help remove the toxic metals lead, strontium, and especially aluminum, among others. As an effective chelator of aluminum, it useful for symptoms associated with Alzheimer’s disease, senile dementia and the removal of heavy metal toxicity.
BioCore® Optimum Enzymes is an enzyme blend that is not only stable but highly active in the acidic conditions of the stomach. It contains fungal proteases that are active at different pH levels, various carbohydrases such as amylase and glucoamylase, which aids in the breakdown of starches, and lipase from Candida rugosa.
Bromelain is a proteolytic enzyme derived from pineapple. Taken with food, it aids in the proper digestion and absorption of food as it breaks down protein. It is therefore indicated for gastrointestinal complaints such as gas, bloating, diarrhea and cramps associated with incomplete or inefficient digestion.
Papain, a substance derived from the unripe tropical fruit papaya, is a proteolytic enzyme. The primary uses of proteolytic enzymes in dietary supplements are as digestive enzymes, anti-inflammatory agents and pain relievers. When taken with meals, papain will break down protein and help relieve gas and bloating. When taken away from meals, it has been shown to speed recovery from sports and other minor injuries, reduce inflammation and reduce pain and stiffness of arthritis. Chemicals in papain may increase immune system function and they may also promote the release of natural chemicals that attack tumor cells. Papain has also been used to rid the body of parasites.
