You are what you digest—not just what you eat
The old saying, “You are what you eat,” is only partially true. In reality, you are what you digest and assimilate. Eating the healthiest, most nutritious foods can provide great benefits for your body, but only if the foods can be broken down and assimilated properly.
We produce fewer digestive enzymes as we age
As we age, our bodies lose the ability to produce enough digestive enzymes to ensure complete digestion. Also, eating a diet mainly of cooked and processed foods does not provide us with the enzymes naturally present in raw foods. Without enough digestive enzymes to break down food, we may experience indigestion, gas and bloating, and miss out on optimum health.Supports the stomach, pancreas, liver and gall bladder
Having food undergo the appropriate breakdown at each stage of digestion is key. Protein, carbohydrates and fats break down at different stages and by different enzymes and processes.* Lindberg Complete Digestant contains a wide spectrum for all types of food. Take with meals
You can take it daily with meals or only when you need digestive help, such as with a large, heavy meal. It's also ideal for those on a high-protein diet. The older you are, the more likely you may need digestive help
We've found that older people, particularly those over the age of 40, can benefit from supplemental enzymes. Bloating, gas, indigestion or upset stomach could point to a need to improve your digestive system. Comprehensive enzyme formula
If your digestive system needs a little help, try this complete digestive enzyme formula to ensure your digestive system is functioning optimally.
Complete Digestant supports several stages of digestion
Stage 1 – Stomach
The stomach secretes gastric juices to initiate the break down of food.
Betaine Hydrochloride – Supports the stomach’s production of hydrochloric acid to lower the pH level so enzymes including pepsin can be activated.*
Pepsin – Helps break down certain protein bonds.*
Papain – An enzyme from papaya fruit that helps break down protein.*
Bromelain – An enzyme from pineapple that helps break down protein.*
Lactase - Helps break down milk sugar (lactose).* Ideal for those who eat dairy or drink protein shakes.*
Alpha-Galactosidase - Helps break down complex carbs such as legumes (beans), cruciferous vegetables (cauliflower, broccoli), and grains.*
Stage 2 – Pancreas
The pancreas secretes a mixture of enzymes into the small intestine.
Pancreatin 10X – Consists of three enzymes: amylase to break down carbohydrates, protease to break down protein and lipase to break down fat.*
Stage 3 – Liver and gall bladder
The liver and gallbladder make and secrete bile into the small intestine to emulsify fat so it can be digested.
Ox Bile Extract – Supports the liver and gall bladder’s production of bile.*
