Nutri Nutrigest Digestive Enzymes 90 tabs
Nutrigest is a fully comprehensive aid to the digestive process containing hydrochloric acid (stomach acid), gastric (stomach) digestive enzymes, plus a combination of enzymes required for protein, carbohydrate and fat digestion in the small intestine.
s not just what we eat, but how well we can digest and actually absorb it that counts! If stomach acid levels fall too low this can result in difficulties digesting protein and may also result in low levels of digestive enzymes and bile being secreted during the digestive process. A supplement containing HCl and enzymes may be a very helpful way to support digestion.
As we age our bodies may produce less HCl. This can also occur in either acute or chronic illness. Nutrigest is suitable for those who may have compromised digestive function, who may benefit from a broad-spectrum digestive support supplement to facilitate more optimum digestion and assimilation.
HCl aims to support healthy stomach acid levels. An acidic environment in the stomach is crucial for the breakdown (denaturing) of proteins and adequate levels of HCl are also needed to stimulate the pancreas to secrete digestive enzymes. This occurs once the partially digested food mixture is released from the stomach into the small intestine. A low pH (acidic) is also vital for supporting immune function, as potentially harmful microbes cannot live in an acidic environment.
