    Wellness, Digestion, and Lifestyle

    Living in today's society and keeping up with the constant demands of daily life while balancing a healthy lifestyle can seem almost impossible. We know that caring for our bodies and leading healthy lifestyles is important, but from managing a household to maintaining careers, it seems like the demands put on us daily can make it feel like it's impossible to have it all. However, neglecting certain aspects of our health, like consuming whole, unprocessed foods with the necessary nutrient content, can have detrimental effects on our health -- sometimes in ways, we may not consider, like our enzymatic health and the ability of our enzymes to perform their functions for the body properly.

    What are Enzymes

    Enzymes are a kind of protein that lives in the cell and create chemical reactions within the body. Digestive enzymes are responsible for breaking down the food that you eat by working as catalysts to speed the body's natural chemical reactions, which turn the nutrients you ingest into substances that can be absorbed by your digestive tract. This process begins in the mouth with your saliva, which has a host of digestive enzymes. You can even test this process for yourself in a self-experiment called the Cracker Test. To do this, take an unsalted saltine cracker and chew it without swallowing. Due to an enzyme called amylase in your saliva, the taste of the cracker may change, shifting as the starch of the cracker is being broken down into sugar. Amylase, which breaks down carbohydrates and starches, is only one kind of enzyme in our bodies, but where else are they and what can they do?1

    Why are they important?

    The enzymes in your body are responsible for performing tasks essential to your body's ability to function properly. Some of these tasks include building muscles, destroying toxins, and breaking down food during the digestive process. Enzymes are the key to many critical chemical reactions in the body, without which, the body cannot function as it should.2

    How do They Work?

    The key to an enzyme is its shape. This is famously called the Lock and Key Theory, in which the enzyme is a lock, and it must bind with a substrate, the key, in order to perform its particular function for the body. The problem is, unhealthy conditions in the body can cause the enzymes to change their shape, impeding their ability to bind with the correct substrate to perform the necessary function. Consequently, the chemical reactions that are necessary for the body are damaged and unable to fulfill their responsibilities.2

    Natural Sources of Digestive Enzymes

    Foods like fruits and vegetables have natural digestive enzymes within them, and incorporating external digestive enzymes, from foods and supplements, can improve your digestion and help with symptoms like stomach aches, diarrhea, and gas.1

    Who is Lifegest for?

    Lifegest is ideal for individuals looking to support and enhance healthy digestion, enhance nutrient absorption from their diets, and relieve occasional heartburn and indigestion. Patients suffering from heartburn, acid indigestion, gas, bloating and/or stomach ache after eating may benefit from using Lifegest, as well as see digestive and overall nutritional benefits by increased absorption of nutrients. Lifegest helps the body by providing the body with powerful enzymes to aid the processing and digestion of proteins, fat, and carbohydrates. The enzymes include proteases, carbohydrates, and lipases that work synergistically with the body's digestive system to enhance digestive functions. Digestive enzymes have been shown to benefit the absorption of nutritional factors, preventing intestinal gas formation and bloating from certain foods.

    Benefits of Lifegest

    Benefits of Lifegest can include enhanced digestion and absorption of nutrients, as well as relief from heartburn and indigestion. Improved digestion has been shown to lead to an increase in the ability of the body to absorb the vital nutrients it needs to function properly and optimally.

    The Bottom Line

    LifeGest contains a synergistic blend of digestive enzymes that help support healthy digestion and encourage relief from occasional heartburn and indigestion, as well as promotes digestive functions by supplying essential enzymes which help the body digest protein, fat, and carbohydrates.* Digestive enzymes have been shown to prevent the formation of intestinal gas and bloating from certain foods, and LifeGest helps restore digestive enzymes that may be lacking in processed and cooked foods common in today's busy lifestyle and "on-the-go" eating habits.*

    Pancreatic enzymes, also known as pancreases or pancrelipase and pancreatin, are commercial mixtures of amylase, lipase, and protease.


    A protease (also called a peptidase or proteinase) is an enzyme that catalyzes (increases reaction rate or "speeds up") proteolysis, the breakdown of proteins into smaller polypeptides or single amino acids. They do this by cleaving the peptide bonds within proteins by hydrolysis, a reaction where water breaks bonds. Proteases are involved in many biological functions, including digestion of ingested proteins, protein catabolism (breakdown of old proteins), and cell signaling.

    Amylase is present in the saliva of humans and some other mammals, where it begins the chemical process of digestion. Foods that contain large amounts of starch but little sugar, such as rice and potatoes, may acquire a slightly sweet taste as they are chewed because amylase degrades some of their starch into sugar. The pancreas and salivary gland make amylase (alpha amylase) to hydrolyse dietary starch into disaccharides and trisaccharides which are converted by other enzymes to glucose to supply the body with energy.

    Cellulase is a naturally occurring enzyme that breaks down cellulose, which is the main constituent of plant cell walls and vegetable fibers (cellulose is what gives wood its strength, for example). Cellulase is produced by fungi, bacteria, protozoans, plants, and animals.
