Belly-Ease has 16 Digestive Enzymes and 12
has also Multiple Approaches to Digestive Health:
Protease 4.5 , 6.0 and 3.0-
proteases refers to a group of enzymes whose function is to break down
proteins; they are also referred to as proteolytic enzymes or proteinases. The
proteins are broken down to their basic building blocks - amino acids. In order
to have the amino acids available to the body, these enzymes have to break down
the proteins to free them. This important compound is the key to digestive
health. Belly-Ease Chewable Chewable formula contains four different
Amylase - amylase
refers to a group of enzymes that breaks down sugars and starches. They are
required to digest carbohydrates (polysaccharides) into smaller units
(disaccharides), and eventually converting them into even smaller units
(monosaccharide) such as glucose.
Diastase - diastase is
an enzyme that is the catalyst in the hydrolysis of disaccharide maltose to the
simple sugar from glucose. When starch is eaten, it is partially
digested and transformed to maltose by both the saliva enzymes and pancreatic
enzymes called amylases. The maltase secreted in the intestines converts this
maltose into the usable sugar, glucose. The glucose can be used immediately or
stored in the liver for future use.
Lipase - lipase is the
enzyme required to break down fats and lipids. In order for fat to be digested
properly, the liver must first start the process by emulsifying the large fat
molecules. Then bile breaks them down to small droplets, allowing the lipase to
start its work.
lactase is produced in the small intestine and is required to break down
lactose (a primary sugar found in mammalian milk) into two simple sugars. It is
mandatory in the digestion of milk and milk products. People, who do not make
any lactase, or enough lactase, are considered lactose intolerant.
glucoamylase is used to breakdown carbohydrates, specifically polysaccharides.
Invertase - invertase
this enzyme breaks down carbohydrates, especially sucrose.
- Help digest protein molecules. Four varieties of protease enzymes have been
combined in this formula to compensate for higher protein diets.
Help digest simple and complex carbohydrates and starches, i.e. pastas, breads
or starchy vegetables like potatoes.
- Specifically help with releasing fiber-bound minerals from plant
sources. They have been included to aid in the digestion of herbal supplements.
They are also great for vegetarian diets!
NEW! Exopeptidase, Dipeptidyl
peptidase-IV - It seems reasonable that if supplemental DPP IV and
DCP 1 were ingested in conjunction with a gluten containing food, the protein
could be efficiently broken down prior to the entrance into the small
DPP IV should not be considered as an option in lieu of a
gluten-free diet because its usefulness is limited to mild intolerance, and as
an adjunct to help avoid repercussions from inadvertent exposure to gluten.
Our 12 Probiotics we use in our new formula:
ProBiotics are organisms and substances that help improve
the environment of the intestinal tract. These organisms produce acids (such as
acetic acid and lactic acid) and other compounds, which inhibit the growth of
"bad" bacteria and promote good intestinal flora.
Science supports that an important first line of defense
in immunity is intestinal flora. Belly-Ease chewable supplies over three
Billion CFUs (in a days supply) of the most important stabilized
strains of live good guy bacteria. Tow of which are Lactobacillus
Acidophilus DDS-1 and Bifidobacterium Bifidum are specifically chosen for their
special benefits to the immune system and digestive tract.
Along with preventing infective organisms from gaining a
foothold in the GI tract, these strains of bacteria also enhance the activity
of immune cells while improving digestion and good bowel habits
bifidum is a normal inhabitant of the intestines. Found in large
numbers, especially in children and adolescents, the numbers of bifidobacteria
decrease with age. B. bifidum helps detoxify the intestines and promote regular
DDS-1 This DDS-1 strain of Lactobacillus acidophilus is a unique,
highly-stable probiotic microorganism, which, when produced according to Dr.
Shahanis proprietary methods, has been shown through research to display
the following characteristics.
B. Coagulans - It is
used similarly to lactobacillus and other probiotics as "beneficial" bacteria.
Also used for general digestion problems.
B. infantis -
Normalizes inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract and can crowd out some
strains of E. coli. According to the Journal of Applied Bacteriology, B.
infantis is part of an important group of microorganisms, which are considered
to exert a range of biological activities related to human health. This
particular strain of probiotic has also been shown to produce compounds useful
toward supporting intestinal health.
B. longum - Aids in
the cleansing and health of the colon and liver. It is also known for
supporting normal breast health.
E. Facium - Is
considered a super-bug. It can colonize many organs of the body including the
gastrointestinal tract and the skin. A very hardy organism, it can adapt to a
wide range of temperature and pH conditions.
L. casei - Is reported
to be one of the most potent defenders from Listeria bacteria. It is also known
for its ability to induce an immune response that is helpful in supporting a
healthy urinary tract.
L. plantarum - Can be
found in naturally fermented foods. In your body it is found in the large
intestine where it helps to break down protein into usable nutrients, thus
L. rhamnosus - Is one
of the more highly studied probiotic strains, primarily used in support of
normal gastrointestinal health. It also aids the body in balancing the normal
flora ecology and supports a healthy urinary tract.
L. salivarius - Has
been shown through research to produce a high amount of lactic acid, which can
inhibit the growth of H. pylori bacteria.
L. Lactis - Helpful
with digestive issues and inflammation of any part of the digestive tract.
S. thermophilus - Is
known for repairing free radical damage from aging, stress, antibiotics,
chlorinated water and other chemicals. It also contains an antioxidant that
helps normalize inflammation and protect against the toxins present in the
Standard American Diet.
Whole food Vitamin C -
from Amla Fruit, also known as Indian gooseberry, is one of the richest natural
sources of bioflavonoids and Vitamin C. Native to India, the plum sized fruit
is revered for its anti-aging and immune enhancing properties.
Zinc - serves many
functions, including acting as a constituent to at least 25 enzymes involved in
digestion and metabolism. Research indicates that the health of the bodys
natural killer cells may be dependent on zinc intake for normal growth and
development. Zinc is very important for proper function of the thymus gland and
thymus hormones, as well as cellular immunity
