Why Choose Udo's Choice Digestive Enzymes


Digestive enzymes are not all the same. Different kinds of enzymes work to break down different kinds of food. That’s why we need a diverse suite of them. Also, on the long digestive journey from mouth to colon, food passes through harsh alkaline and acidic environments. We need enzymes specific enzymes that can function in these extreme conditions.

Many enzymes on the market today are made from animal organs. This means that they work only in a narrow pH range and can often only digest protein or fat. Udo’s Choice Digestive Enzymes however, contains no less than seven different digestive enzyme types that have been derived from plants and cultivated on a plant medium. Their pH activity range is broad. In fact, the various Udo’s Choice enzymes function along the entire length of the digestive tract. Protease works to break down proteins in the acidic environment of the stomach while bromelain breaks proteins down in the more alkaline intestines. Alpha- Galactosidase breaks down raffinose series sugars found mainly in cruciferous vegetables, turnips, onions and beans (so you avoid bloating and wind). Lipase breaks down fats while lactase splits up milk sugar, combatting uncomfortable lactose intolerance.

Life takes its toll. We age, we experience stress, pregnancy and illness or perhaps we simply do too much. Meanwhile food grown, processed and cooked the modern way just doesn’t provide the digestive enzymes we need. Depletion leads to malabsorption of nutrients, hunger pangs and overeating, hormone imbalances, diarrhoea, constipation, a compromised immune system and inflammatory conditions. The body needs really digestive enzymes. It pays to replenish with diverse, high quality enzymes such as Udo’s Choice Digestive Enzymes, because when you look after your digestive tract, it will look after you.
