Wellness Resources® Digestive Helper™ contains high potency, pure plant enzymes for digesting all types of food.* Wellness’ many years of experience has shown that plant enzymes are the top choice for assisting digestion.* This unique enzymes are active over a wide pH (3 to 9), and work in the upper portion of the stomach for a full hour after a meal has been eaten.*
Unlike other enzymes such as hydrochloric acid or pancreatic enzymes, our enzymes are designed to assist digestion of a very broad array of foods.* The proteases digest protein. The amylase, glucoamylase, invertase, maltase and lactase digest carbohydrate and sugars.* Lipase digests fats. Cellulase breaks down fiber.*
Many of the symptoms of indigestion (gas, bloating, heartburn) may be caused by a lack of digestive power.* In such cases the acid and alkali components of food may begin to react and form gas – which also may result in bloating.* Incompletely digested food may “back up” causing heartburn.* Oftentimes, a boost of digestive power will help get the whole process on track.*
In addition to the enzymes, various herbs (DGL, ginger, and slippery elm) that are soothing to the digestive tract have been added.* Ginger also helps bring warmth and circulation to the digestive tract.* This combination is helpful for individuals in weakened condition or those who lack appetite.*
