"I've dealt with heartburn, indigestion, and IBS for years... but about a year ago, I started taking two AbsorbAid capsules with each meal. After just a few days my heartburn and indigestion were gone. Several months ago I ran out of the product and immediately noticed my symptoms return... I never eat a meal again without AbsorbAid." K. Lawrence - Chicago, IL
"I have trouble eating foods with gluten. I cramp and can feel my colon become inflamed. Bad outbreaks can completely drain me. Since I started taking AbsorbAid I'm much better and don't have to be quite as strict with my diet. Thank you, thank you, thank you!" M. Campbell - El Paso, TX
"When I read about leaky gut syndrome I was skeptical. I had taken a lot of antibiotics over the years for sinus infections and bronchitis and obviously this caused colon problems. I developed a lot of food allergies because of the leaky gut and began trying numerous digestive aid products. Nothing has provided the relief I've experienced with AbsorbAid. I can now occasionally eat foods I'm mildly allergic to with no reaction! " C. S. - Georgia
"My chronic constipation caused me to develop hemorrhoids. After two months of taking AbsorbAid with each meal, my constipation was gone and my hemorrhoids are much better." Gavin J. - Topeka, KS
"The biggest difference I noticed after starting AbsorbAid was that I just felt better. I have more energy and look healthier. It may be that my body is now able to more completely digest and assimilate nutrients from the food I'm eating." T. Jameson - Savannah, GA
"To be honest I have tried other digestive products in addition to occasionally using AbsorbAid, some of them seemed to help a little but also cost over twice as much. No use trying to reinvent the wheel, so for the past three years I've stayed with AbsorbAid. I rarely get heartburn anymore and one interesting thing is I used to have a problem with bad breath and that also cleared up." Deanne W. - Sacramento, CA
"About ten years ago I developed a pretty bad ulcer and every once in a while it would flare back up. I hate the taste of Mylanta and other antacids - yuck! I also tried Prilosec, Prevacid, and other OTC medications. The ulcer would heal up after several weeks of taking the medicines but they would get my digestion out of balance because these drugs turn off production of stomach acid - which we need to digest our foods properly. About 2 years ago I took AbsorbAid with almost every meal while I was taking the Prilosec. Not only did the ulcer heal quicker, but my digestive system worked properly during that time. I thought if AbsorbAid helped digestion that much I would just keep taking it. Guess what? It's been 2 years and my ulcer has not come back!" Helen C. - Naples, Florida
"I've used AbsorbAid for years, but was buying it at a health food store until recently. Thank you so much for setting up the online store thru Amazon.... I now save about 40% off of regular retail! AbsorbAid really is an amazing product. I've told all my friends about it. Kenneth B. - Charlotte, NC
"You guys need to advertise more. I just found AbsorbAid a few months ago and only wish I had found it many years ago instead. Also my dad is in his 80's and it's known that elderly folks don't absorb their food and the nutrients it contains very well. I finally convinced him to start taking AbsorbAid and he really seems to feel better. I think proper nutrition is the key to preventing so many common diseases." Karen R. - Albany, NY
"Who would have guessed that a simple digestive enzyme blend could have so many positive effects? I've saved so much money not having to buy Prilosec anymore. I rarely have gas regardless of what I eat and my heartburn is pretty much gone. I used to also get bronchitis that was caused from the irritation of the acid backing up in my throat while I slept. Haven't had bronchitis in the three years since I started AbsorbAid. This is probably my favorite supplement." Stephanie S. - Seattle, WA

Most digestion problems and many other disease conditions are a result of having insufficient quantities of enzymes needed to properly digest the food you put into your system. Many times there is a problem of too little stomach acid as well...
It is commonly recognized among health professionals that many of our most problematic degenerative diseases such as arthritis and other autoimmune disorders are linked to improper digestion of our foods and supplements, which can actually lead to malnutrition even if you eat a healthy diet. There is also a direct link between improper digestion and the development of food allergies, food intolerance, or food sensitivities.
For those who suffer from sour stomach, heartburn, or acid reflux... doctors recommend antacids and acid-blockers, which can actually compound the problem and cause a "rebound effect". The more antacids or acid- blockers you take, the more your system requires. As a result you end up 'hooked' on these products. This can really be unfortunate since they can also cause some very serious side effects that may be harmful to your health. By using antacids or blockers to turn off or reduce the production of digestive stomach acids, you are also making it harder for your body to properly digest the food you consume
In addition to helping your body properly break down and assimilate the food you eat, AbsorbAid natural digestive enzymes help to break the cycle of antacids and acid-blockers by restoring your normal digestive function. AbsorbAid is not just another "flash in the pan" nutritional supplement. For over twenty years, tens of thousands of individuals with digestive problems have used safe all-natural AbsorbAid to reduce or eliminate their dependence on dangerous drugs while improving their overall health. Read on to learn more about digestive enzymes...
What are enzymes?
Enzymes are fundamental to all life. They are in every living thing and are needed for every chemical reaction that occurs in humans. Without enzymes no biological activity could occur. Enzymes catalyze and regulate every biochemical reaction that takes place within the human body. There are literally hundreds of thousands of enzymes actively involved in human metabolism. They move your muscles, stimulate your nerves, make your heart beat, keep you breathing, and allow you to think. Our bodies cannot exist without enzymes.
How do enzymes aid in digestion?
Enzymes are an integral part of the digestive process. From the time food enters the mouth, enzymes are at work breaking the food down into smaller and smaller units until it can be absorbed through the intestinal wall. These enzymes come from two sources, those found in the food itself, and those produced in the body.
What is the difference between pancreatic enzymes, plant enzymes, and microbial enzymes?
Supplemental, pancreatic, plant, and microbial enzymes are all designed to enhance digestion. However, plant and microbial enzymes use a "proactive" approach and begin working on foods soon after ingestion. Because of their stability in the acidic environment of the upper stomach, plant and microbial enzymes can begin their digestive action immediately after the food reaches this region. With this increased exposure to digestive enzyme activity, food has a better chance of being broken down into small, more readily absorbed particles. Meanwhile, pancreatic enzymes (produced by the body) usually begin working approximately 30 minutes after food reaches the stomach. It's important that proper digestion from microbial, plant and supplemental enzymes is already taking place when the pancreatic enzymes begin their job.
Why are food enzymes missing in cooked and processed foods?
Modern food processing techniques and all types of cooking destroy nearly 100% of the enzymes naturally occurring in food. Enzymes are completely denatured when exposed to temperatures over 118 degrees for any length of time. The modern diet consisting of cooked and processed food is essentially devoid of active enzymes.
When raw food is ingested, enzymes present within the food are released, thereby assisting the body's digestive processes in breaking down the food into its simplest components for utilization within the body. However, cooking and processing destroys those enzymes, forcing the body's organs to work harder in an attempt to supply additional enzymes needed to adequately digest the food. This can stress your digestive systems and result in imbalances in the way your body utilizes the food you eat... resulting in numerous negative health conditions.
There are several categories of food enzymes:
• Lipase breaks down fats that are found in most dairy products, nuts, oils, & meat.
• Lactase breaks down lactose (milk sugars).
• Protease breaks down proteins that are found in meats, nuts, eggs, & cheese.
• Amylase breaks down carbohydrates, starches, and sugars, prevalent in potatoes, fruits, vegetables, & many snack foods.
• Cellulase breaks down cellulose, the fibrous structure that makes up most plant cell walls.
To provide enough enzymes to relieve the burden on the body, the choices are to eat a lot more raw food or the take a supplemental enzyme-based product. Those with compromised digestive systems may need increased levels of enzymes in order to obtain optimum health.
What are some short and long-term benefits?
The benefits of taking supplemental natural enzymes will vary depending upon the individual, diet, and general health. For the most part, people notice less fullness after meals, faster emptying of stomach contents, decreased gas, less stool being passed, and more regular bowel habits. As the digestive system returns to a normal condition, many have found it easier to lose weight. Improper digestion is also the root cause of many modern conditions such as food allergies and inflammatory diseases like arthritis.
Is supplementation really necessary? The enzymes naturally present in food play an important role in digestion by helping to predigest the ingested food in the upper stomach before hydrochloric acid has even been secreted. This pre-digestion is hindered when food is cooked or processed because the enzymes are
destroyed by the processing procedures. Placing the full digestive burden on the body's digestive process can
cause it to become overstressed. As a result, vital nutrients may not be released from the food for assimilation by the body, and gastrointestinal problems may result.
What happens when food is not properly digested? Over a century ago, Virchow described "digestive leukocytosis" a condition in which the white blood cell count increases after a meal. Further research by Kouchakoff identified cooked and processed foods as the causative factor. Kouchakoff observed that raw food induced no change in WBC counts while cooked foods, particularly cooked meat, caused rapid increases in serum leukocyte levels. When incompletely digested food molecules are absorbed, the body identifies this particulate matter as foreign antigens and forms circulating immune complexes. The immune system then mobilizes macrophage leukocytes to digest the food. This can result in the development of severe food allergies or sensitivities, or other inflammatory conditions.
Why take an enzyme supplement? Supplemental enzymes replace the enzymes once present in raw food. Most enzymes are lost in cooking and processing. Only raw or uncooked food contains enzymes. Nature put these enzymes in food to aid in digesting the food you eat so your body's enzymes would not have to handle all the work. By taking a supplemental enzyme you free up your body's enzymes. When enzymes are missing from your food, the full burden of digestion falls on your own digestive system. Food sits in your stomach for nearly an hour before your body's digestive enzymes are secreted. It is during this time that food enzymes do their best work breaking down complex food molecules. During the first 30 to 60 minutes after eating, enzymes are hard at work, predigesting food long before the stomach acids start their work. Enzymes not broken down in the stomach are re-activated in the small intestine and bring additional benefit.
Today's typical diet of cooked, canned, and convenience foods makes it very important to take supplemental enzymes to relieve some of your body's digestive stress. Since your body will put a higher priority on digestion than on maintaining health, it will steal enzymes from the immune system to finish digestion. Taking a supplemental enzyme can help take stress off not only your digestive organs, but also your immune system.
