What You'll Learn Here:
As you age, reduced digestion can become a greater issue, causing discomforts such as bloating, gas and indigestion. Unfortunately, eating well doesn’t always solve the problem. Just because you are eating well doesn’t mean that your body is getting the nutrients it needs to thrive.
In order to benefit from eating well, your body has to properly digest and absorb the nutrients from your food. The human body produces digestive enzymes that break down the food you eat into nutrients. Nutrients are then absorbed into your body through the small intestine.
When you are lacking enzymes, your body doesn’t digest properly, and as a result, your body does not absorb the nutrients it needs.
A lack of digestive enzymes can lead to digestive and other general health problems.
People who are lacking digestive enzymes may suffer with:
- Bloating and Flatulence
- Food allergies
- Bad bacteria
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Decreased energy
- Lowered immune response
At one time or another most adults have suffered with one or many of these ailments.
Due to the number of processed foods in the Standard American Diet, it’s unlikely that the average person produces enough digestive enzymes. Enzymes are found in raw fruits and vegetables, when we cook or process food we are destroying the enzymes, and the food we eat becomes enzyme deficient.
As we get older, our bodies naturally start to produce fewer digestive enzymes. By the age thirty five, the production of enzymes in the stomach, pancreas and small intestines is in decline.
Enzymes and Digestion
Digestive enzymes play a major role in breaking down food into nutrients that can be absorbed by your body.
Digestion begins in your saliva, breaking down the carbohydrates and fats in your food. And the action of chewing starts the production of digestive enzymes in your stomach.
Once the food has entered the stomach, the stomach enzymes work to further break it down. Proteins, fats and carbohydrates are broken down in preparation for absorption.
The food is then moved into your small intestine where most of the absorption process takes place. The lining of the intestines produce more enzymes to break down fats, carbohydrates and proteins. In addition, your liver produces bile to help with the absorption of fats.
The result of this entire process is that food is reduced to sugars, fatty acids, and amino acids – the fuel for your body.
“Oprah recommends them…enzymes saved my life!”
For forty-five years, Donna struggled with constipation and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The constipation was so severe that it was normal for three or four weeks to pass without a single bowel movement…and all her movements were accompanied by vomiting!
A nurse, Donna’s life became nearly unbearable; she was required to assist in five-hour surgeries while in agonizing discomfort.
Then, after hearing about digestive enzymes on the Oprah show, she began taking the best digestive enzymes available… Puristat enzymes. “It’s a miracle,” she says, having gone to the bathroom every day since she began with Puristat. Read Donna’s full story…
“Romance is alive and well thanks to Enzymes!”
Josephine had suffered for two years with terrible, noisy, and painful gas. It affected her ability to enjoy herself socially, she began to eat very little, and she unintentionally lost weight.
Most trying of all was the way her eembarrassment over noises from the nether regions affected her sex life. Finally, she discovered the best digestive enzymes – Puristat™ Digestive Enzymes on the internet. Now there is barely a peep out of her tummy, and her life is totally back on track. Here’s what Josephine U. told us about the benefits of taking enzymes daily. Read Josephine’s full story…

Sources of Digestive Enzymes
There are many different sources for digestive enzymes. The human body alone produces twenty two different enzymes. Other sources of enzymes are raw vegetables, fruits, grains, and meat. You can also find digestive enzymes in Puristat’s clinically tested Digestive Enzymes supplement.
Supplements with a variety of digestive enzyme sources are best.
A good digestive enzyme will contain multiple enzymes, since each type of food that is ingested requires a different enzyme to break it down. Clinically tested, Puristat’s Full Spectrum Digestive Enzyme supplement provides simply the best digestive enzymes. Below is a brief description of the enzymes contained in Puristat’s Full Spectrum Digestive Enzyme supplement.
Betaine hydrochloride 330mg
Responsible for the digestion of fats and proteins, betaine hydrochloride (betaine HCL) is an acidic form of betaine, a vitamin-like substance found in grains and other foods. Betaine hydrochloride is recommended as a supplemental source of hydrochloric acid for people who have a deficiency of stomach acid production (hypochlorhydria). A deficiency of gastric acid secretion increases the likelihood and severity of certain bacterial and parasitic intestinal infections. Some research suggests that people with a wide variety of chronic disorders, such as allergies, asthma, candida albicans and gallstones, and acne do not produce adequate amounts of stomach acid.
Pepsin 1:15,000 130mg
Pepsin is a digestive enzyme found in gastric juice that catalyzes the breakdown of protein to peptides. Pepsin is one of three principal protein-degrading, or proteolytic, enzymes in the digestive system. Pepsin degrades food proteins in the stomach. Pepsin acts as a potent proteolytic enzyme cleaving proteins into peptides in the gastric lumen at a low pH.
Bromelain 10:1 (pineapple [Ananas comosus fruit] enzyme) 260mg
Bromelain is a proteolytic enzyme found in raw pineapple and aids in the digestion of protein rich foods. It is also a vegetarian alternative to animal sourced enzymes. Bromelain aids digestion by enhancing the effects of the digestive enzymes trypsin and pepin. It can also help to prevent heartburn by ease diarrhea, if either are caused by a deficiency of digestive enzymes.
Papain NF (papaya [Caria papaya] enzyme) 260mg
Responsible for breaking down proteins, papain is an enzyme present in papaya and is used for breaking down meat fibers. It has been utilized for thousands of years in its native South America.
Ox Bile Extract 260mg
Ox Bile Extract helps improves bile secretion which helps ease digestion. Benefits of ox bile extract include a possible reduction of gallstones, greater absorption of vitamin K, A, D and E and may be beneficial in treating liver diseases such as cirrhosis and hepatitis.
Pancreatin 4x (pancreatin:4x the enzyme activities of 1x) 500mg
A combination of 3 enzymes, Pancreatin produced by the exocrine cells of the pancreas. It is composed of amylase, lipase and protease. This digestive enzyme mixture is used to treat conditions in which pancreatic secretions are deficient, such as pancreatitis and cystic fibrosis. It has been claimed to help with food allergies, celiac disease, autoimmune disease, cancer, and weight loss. Pancreatin is sometimes called “pancreatic acid”, although it is neither a single chemical substance nor an acid.
Amylase (aspsergillus orzyne) 50,000 USP Units
Responsible for the digestion of carbohydrates, amylase is an enzyme that breaks starch down into sugar. Amylase is present in human saliva, where it begins the chemical process of digestion. Foods that contain much starch but little sugar, such as rice and potato, taste slightly sweet as they are chewed because amylase turns some of their starch into sugar in the mouth. The pancreas also makes amylase (alpha amylase) to break down dietary starch into di- and trisaccharides which are converted by other enzymes to glucose to supply the body with energy.
Protease (Carica papaya) 50,000 USP Units
Responsible for the digestion of proteins, protease is responsible for digesting proteins in your food, which is probably one of the most difficult substances to metabolize. Because of this, protease is considered to be one of the most important enzymes that we have. If the digestive process is incomplete, undigested protein can wind up in your circulatory system, as well as in other parts of your body.
Lipase 8,500 USP Units
Lipase is an enzyme necessary for the absorption and digestion of nutrients in the intestines. This digestive enzyme is responsible for breaking down lipids (fats), in particular triglycerides, which are fatty substances in the body that come from fat in the diet. Once broken down into smaller components, triglycerides are more easily absorbed in the intestines.
Due to the high amount of processed foods in the North American diet, persons over the age fo 35 can benefit from the daily use of a digestive enzyme supplement.
