Pure Digest is comprised of a proprietary blend of digestive enzymes along with betaine HCl to support optimal digestion of food. It contains the special protease DPP IV (dipeptidyl peptidase IV), which aids in the breakdown of casomorphin (from casein) and gluteomorphin (from gluten). More than 7 million Canadians experience lactose intolerance. Pure Digest also includes the enzyme lactase, which helps break down the dairy sugar lactose. Canadians have some of the highest rates of digestive disorders in the world, and Pure Digest may provide a valuable tool in the GI healing process.
The pancreas produces enzymes that are required for digestion and absorption of food. Enzymes secreted by the pancreas include lipases that digest fats, proteases that digest proteins, and amylases that digest starch. The health of the digestive tract is crucial for the overall health of the body. If food is not digested properly and toxins are not eliminated, it becomes very dicult to achieve optimal health. In addition, virtually every chronic condition will be exacerbated if the intestinal tract accumulates toxic by-products. Digestive enzymes decline 1% every three years after age thirty. Therefore, it is understandable why so many people need to supplement them for optimal digestion and assimilation of nutrients from food. Deficiency of endogenous production of digestive enzymes can lead to gas, bloating, constipation, mal-absorption and a feeling of fullness after eating only a small quantity of food.

Non-Medical Ingredients:Microcrystalline cellulose, vegetable stearate.
Adults: Take 1 capsule per day with or immediately before a meal/food. Take a few hours before or after taking other medications.
Warnings: Consult a healthcare practitioner prior to use if you have high cholesterol, if you are obese, pregnant or breastfeeding, if you have heart or kidney problems or diabetes, if you are taking anticoagulant agents or anti-inflammatory agents, or are having surgery. Consult a healthcare practitioner if symptoms persist or worsen. Do not use if you have gallstones or a bile duct obstruction, if you suffer from gastric reflux or if you have gastrointestinal lesions/ulcers. Headaches, gastrointestinal irritation (e.g. heartburn), diarrhea, bloating and allergy have been known to occur, in which case discontinue use.
Proteases are important in preventing tissue damage during inflammation and in the formation of fibrin clots. Fibrin promotes inflammation by forming a wall around the area of inflammation that results in the blockage of blood which leads to swelling. Fibrin can also cause the development of blood clots that may dislodge and produce strokes or heart attacks.
Individuals who do not secrete enough proteases suffer from multiple food allergies. Failure to digest food allows for large molecules of the undigested food to be absorbed and cause such problems as food allergies, colitis, and immune system weakness. Proteases are essential in preventing the deposit of immune complexes in body tissue. Protease enzymes are effective in reducing circulating immune complex levels in patients with autoimmune disease. Undigested food also allows yeast organisms to thrive. Thus, those with Candida Albicans may benefit from Pure Digest supplementation with their meals.
Pure Digest can also be an important adjunct to assist with healthy weight management. Improved digestion results in better absorption of nutrients, which may enhance production of cellular energy and boost overall metabolism, thereby aiding weight loss. Additionally, better digestion of food allows for faster bowel transit time and more frequent bowel movements, both of which aid weight loss.
