Digestive Enzymes - Heartburn Medicine

Too few digestive enzymes leads to poor digestion, poor absorption, heartburn and acid reflux. This can lead to indigestion, food allergies, constipation, bloating. This heartburn medicine works.

Balanced digestive enzyme formula for complete digestion with the most useful enzymes available with papain, pancreatin, bromelain and ox bile extracts.

Chronic heartburn appears to be fueling the nation's fastest-growing cancer, esophageal cancer. Some 3 million Americans are thought to have a type of esophagus damage from severe acid reflux that puts them at increased risk for the deadly cancer. Almost 15,000 Americans will be diagnosed with esophageal cancer this year. Most won't be diagnosed until they feel symptoms such as trouble swallowing and loss of appetite.

The prognosis is poor: Just 16 percent of esophageal cancer patients survive five years, and 14,000 are predicted to die this year. Most have esophageal adenocarcinoma, the type linked to severe chronic heartburn.

Most digestive problems can be helped with digestive enzymes, including heartburn, excessive abdominal gas, irritable bowel syndrome and colitis.

The function of digestion is to reduce food particles from their combined form (long-chained molecules) to their smaller basic form. This is necessary so that these particles can pass across the stomach wall. This is accomplished by digestive enzymes that split the molecular bonds and add a molecule of water to the broken ends. After the food is digested, it is then assimilated for growth tissue repair and energy production.

The process of digestion begins in the mouth as we chew our food. Saliva is added at this time, which contains digestive enzymes and other necessary factors need to stimulate this process.

After we swallow the food, digestion by salivary enzymes and by the enzymes found in the food itself continues in the upper part of the stomach for 30 to 60 minutes. This is the minimal time it takes for the body to concentrate enough HCL acid to initiate the next step of digestion.

The food now is liquefied in the acidity of the stomach, and then enters the small intestine where it is alkalized by secretions of the pancreas. The body adds its own digestive enzymes at this point.

The presence of food in the duodenum causes bile to be released from the gall bladder to emulsify fats. This is necessary since the presence of fat severly retards enzymatic action. Remember to use Ultra Enzyme with each meal and also between meals for best results in preventing heartburn and other digestive problems.

Recommendation: As a Dietary supplement, take 1-2 tablets with each meal. Pancreatin and Ox Bile are enteric coated and provide the release of these ingredients in the intestines. The other enzyme ingredients are not enteric coated and dissolve in the stomach.
