Support for the Digestive System
- Improves nutrient absorption
- Supports gastrointestinal health
- Improves digestion
Digestase 2.0 is a vegetarian enzymatic digestive aid formulated with proteases and other digestive enzymes that activate at different pH ranges. Digestase 2.0 helps reduce gas production and prevent gastrointestinal intolerance caused by fermentable carbohydrates, assists in the digestion of lactose and helps prevent symptoms of lactose intolerance.

The Burden of Digestion
The digestive system is essential to health. The digestion of foods requires the help of many different enzymes. Recent research has discovered that supplementation with these enzymes can help with digestion, improve the health of the gastrointestinal system, enhance nutrient absorption and alleviate the gastrointestinal burden of digesting food.
Digestase 2.0 is a new and improved formula containing a mixture of enzymes critical to digestion: amylase digests long-chain polysaccharides, proteases digest complex proteins, lipase digests fats, and invertase digests sucrose. New additions to Digestase 2.0 include cellulase which digests cellulose fibres, lactase which digests lactose, and alpha galactosidase which digests oligosaccharides (like those found in beans and legumes) and reduces gas and bloating associated with such foods. Besides improving digestion, these enzymes can also reduce inflammation, and have been shown to speed up recovery times after injury.
Digestase 2.0 has been reformulated based on the most current valid research and is based on the most advanced study of the human digestive system. It contains a mixture of digestive enzymes from a variety of sources to guarantee their function at different pH ranges, and to ensure healthy digestion.
The proteins, fats, polysaccharides and other nutrients that we consume in our foods cannot be used by our bodies as such, but must first be broken down into smaller units. This process requires the help of many enzymes found in the mouth, stomach, pancreas and intestines.
The principle behind digestive enzyme formulations is simple: to improve digestion and to alleviate the gastrointestinal burden of digesting the food we eat. Digestase 2.0 is a vegetarian and comprehensive enzyme formula with the basic premise of enhancing the digestion of food. The new and improved formula contains seven different types of enzymes:
Amylase: a major digestive enzyme that is essential for the digestion of long-chain polysaccharides like those found in starches and cellulose.
Protease: the enzyme responsible for the breakdown of peptide bonds that releases individual amino acids from complex proteins. Digestase 2.0 provides two sources of proteases to broaden activity and ensure viability under a variety of pH profiles throughout the intestines.
Lipase: the enzyme responsible for the digestion of fats. Digestase 2.0 provides two sources of lipases to broaden activity and ensure viability under a variety of pH profiles throughout the intestines.
Invertase: an enzyme that breaks down sucrose (sugar) into fructose and glucose.
New Additions to Digestase 2.0:
Alpha Galactosidase: a digestive enzyme that breaks down hard-to-digest carbohydrates, like those found in beans, legumes and cruciferous vegetables, into glucose. The activity of this enzyme helps reduce bloating and flatulence associated with consumption of such foods.
Lactase: an enzyme that breaks down lactose (milk sugar) into the simple sugars glucose and galactose.
Cellulase: an enzyme complex which breaks down cellulose, a type of indigestible polysaccharide, into usable sugars.
Using a new technology that replicates the human stomach and small intestines, the efficacy of a formula similar to Digestase 2.0 as a digestive aid was assessed. This formula improved the following digestive processes:
Under normal digestive conditions: the absorption of carbohydrates more than doubled and increased the absorption of protein in the ileum while protein absorption remained essentially the same in the jejunum.
Under impaired digestive conditions: differences were even greater: glucose absorption in the jejunum increased 9-fold and protein digestion increased significantly in both the jejunum and ileum.
The health benefits of enzyme supplementation are not limited to the absorption of nutrients. Supplemental enzymes relieve digestive organs. Animal experiments are clear: enzyme supplementation results in a healthier intestinal brush border and better nutrient accretion.
Supplemental enzymes also reduce inflammation and speed up recovery. Studies in athletes have shown improved recovery time when supplementing with enzymes. Similarly, patients undergoing surgery recover more quickly if they are prescribed enzymes.
Enzymes facilitate chemical reactions, improve digestion, support digestive organs and hasten recovery. For the first time, a digestive enzyme has been tested and shown to support digestion. Digestase 2.0 is the world’s first digestive enzyme formula supported by research.
