Enzymedica: Clinically Supported Digestive Enzymes
Definitely one of our most edifying and interesting encounters took place across the front counter of the Enzymedica booth, where East Coast Director Silvia Solaun poured out a quick, but very informative schooling on digestive health (and Enzymedica’s digestive enzyme products) into the mic.
Silvia’s spiel was built around an issue that many digestive enzyme supplements gloss over: the variability in the acidic environments of different parts of the digestive system.
“In your stomach, which I like to call ‘uptown,’ you need a pH of 1.0 to 3.5,” Silvia quipped, adding that the pancreas (midtown) needs a pH of 8.0 to 8.3 and the small intestine needs a pH of 7.5 to 8.0.
In other words, if you’re taking a digestive enzyme product that has not accommodated for this variability in acidity, then you’re giving the enzymes an uphill battle, as some enzymes are only activated in certain pH ranges, to name just one of several reasons this connection is important.
So, what’s Enzymedica’s answer? They call it Therablend.
Therablend is what Enzymedica has dubbed their clinically proven, patented formulation that allows each product to work optimally throughout the digestive tract by incorporating enzymes that thrive in each acidic environment mentioned above.
“That’s exactly what you get in every product we make,” Silvia proclaimed, using GlutenEase and Digest Basic – two of their most popular products – as examples.
Speaking of, most of their products come in capsules that you take with each meal – or at least, with each meal you know is going to be a doozy. You get the idea.
Thanks for the info, Silvia of Enzymedica!
