New Improved ‘Digestion & Stomach Upset Support’ : Ingredient Definitions:
alpha-Galactosidase: Enzyme that digests raffinose sugars, a family of oligosaccharides found in foods that often cause gas, bloating and intestinal discomfort, like beans, grains, and hard-to-digest vegetables (broccoli, cabbage and Brussels sprouts). This enzyme is not present in the human digestive system and must be provided from an outside source.
Amylase: Enzyme that breaks down complex carbohydrates, such as long-chain starches, into smaller oligosaccharides and disaccharides.
beta-Glucanase: Enzyme that acts on beta glucans, a polysaccharide found in oats, barley, yeast and mushrooms. Beta glucans have been shown to have positive effects on blood pressure, blood sugar and blood cholesterol because of their fiber content.
Cellulase: Enzyme that acts on cellulose (fiber) portion of carbohydrates. Enhances release of phytochemicals and nutrients from cellulose. Not produced by the human body.
Diastase: Enzyme that breaks down long-chain starches in carbohydrates by removing the disaccharide maltose.
Glucoamylase: Enzyme that breaks down polysaccharides and maltodextrins in starches, such as potato, rice, wheat and corn.
Hemicellulase: Breaks down hemicellulose, a compound similar to cellulose and another indigestible fiber found in plants.
Invertase: Enzyme that digests the disaccharide sucrose into two monosaccharides, fructose and glucose. Augments function of sucrase, which is secreted by healthy intestinal villi but is found in lower levels when villi are damaged by gastrointestinal disorders.
Lactase: Enzyme that digests the disaccharide lactose into its two monosaccharides,
glucose and galactose. Lactose is the sugar found in milk and other dairy products and may be used as an additive in other foods; lactose is a common allergen in milk and other dairy products.
Lipase: Enzyme that digests large fat molecules into smaller units and eventually free fatty acids. Helps with gallbladder or pancreatic problems, gastroparesis (delayed gastric emptying) or bloating and gas after fatty meals.
Peptidase: Enzyme that digests smaller peptide chains (dipeptides and tripeptides) released from large protein molecules into free amino acids.
Phytase: Enzyme that digests phytates, compounds that store phosphorus in plants and bind dietary minerals.
Xylanase: Enzyme that digests hemicellulose and xylan, fibrous components of the plant cell wall, into xylose.
Ginger Rhizome: Reduces nausea, vomiting and gastrointestinal (GI) upset. Certain constituents use the same mechanism of action as some prescription antiemetics.
Antiemetic activity is primarily on the GI tract; may also act on the central nervous system. Shows anti-inflammatory action through ability to inhibit cyclooxygenases, lipoxygenases, leukotrienes and prostaglandins. Appears to have analgesic and sedative properties. May protect intestinal tissue by increasing levels of protective prostaglandins.
May increase insulin release and lower blood cholesterol levels. Inhibits platelet aggregation. Helps lower blood pressure. Appears to act as a calcium-channel blocker.
Demonstrates antimicrobial activity.
Green Tea Leaf: Exhibits antioxidant effects. Appears to prevent damage to skin and DNA due to ultraviolet radiation. Reduces oxidation of lipoprotein, which may contribute to plaque formation. Reduces smooth muscle proliferation in vessels. Shows anti-inflammatory activity by COX and leukotriene inhibition. Protects cartilage and inhibits break down of collage and joint degeneration. May protect against certain cancer through antimutagenic properties, inhibition of tumor-cell growth and prevention of angiogenesis.
Shows protective activity against certain viruses. Can aid in increasing bone mineral density with long-term use. Improves cognition and CNS function, possibly via caffeine content. Appears to protect neuronal tissue against degenerative disorders. Seems to improve respiratory function. May be useful in weight loss by increasing metabolism of fat and energy expenditure and helping to suppress appetite. Helps increase levels of beneficial bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract.
Licorice Root (DGL) : May help to accelerate the healing of ulcerated tissue in the gastronintestinal tract. Appears to have soothing properties. Helps relieve spasms. Acts as an anti-inflammatory by blocking metabolism of prostaglandins.
Marshmallow Root: Forms protective layer on skin and mucous membranes, such as those lining the digestive and respiratory tracts. Contains chemicals that may suppress cough and facilitate wound healing. Stimulates phagocytosis, thus enhancing immune function. May also possess anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial activity. Possibly helps reduce blood glucose levels.
Slippery Elm (bark): Used for coughs, sore throat, colic, diarrhea, constipation, hemorrhoids, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), cystitis, urinary inflammation, urinary tract infections, syphilis, herpes, and for expelling tapeworms. It is also used for protecting against stomach and duodenal ulcers, for colitis, diverticulitis, GI inflammation, and acidity.
Gamma oryzanol: Used for hypercholesterolemia and dyslipidemia, increasing testosterone and human growth hormone levels, improving strength during resistance exercise training, and for treating symptoms associated with menopause and aging.
Quercetin: Flavonoid with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, which may result from inhibition of leukotrienes, prostaglandins, histamine and COX enzymes. May promote immune system function by increasing neutrophil, macrophage, lymphocyte and natural killer cell activity. Demonstrates some antiviral activity, preventing viral replication and decreasing ability to infect. May inhibit carcinogenesis by inhibition of cell proliferation and angiogenesis and alteration of enzymes involved in cancer formation. May inhibit platelet aggregation and reduce atherosclerosis by inhibiting oxidation of low-density lipoprotein. Inhibits overgrowth of smooth muscle cells that can contribute to thickening of vessel walls. Potentially has hypotensive and vasorelaxing effects. May increase strength of capillaries, thus protecting against disorders resulting from capillary fragility.
Lactobacillus acidophilus: A strain of lactic-acid producing, anaerobic bacteria. Lactic acid lowers pH and inhibits growth of pathogens. May also produce hydrogen peroxide, which kills pathogens. Produce bacteriocins that inhibit bacterial growth. Enhance several functions of the human body, including metabolizing foods and some drugs, preventing pathogenic bacteria from colonizing, and absorbing vitamins and minerals. Improve bioavailability of certain minerals. Increase mucus in the epithelial lining. Decrease permeability of the intestinal wall. Especially helpful during antibiotic treatment or after disease has diminished or depleted normal flora in either the urinary or gastrointestinal tract. Can also compete with pathogenic bacteria in the epithelium. May have ability to modulate immune function. Produce vitamin K. May especially protect against E. coli, staphylococcus, salmonella, candida and helicobacter. Beneficial for diarrhea and irritable bowel syndrome, as well as fungal, urinary and respiratory infections.
