Digest CapsBy Steve Born
Many modern nutritionists agree with Hippocrates (the "father of modern medicine," 460-377 BC) that "all disease begins in the gut." If your gut is unhealthy, your entire body will be negatively affected.
A primary aspect of intestinal health is the battle between "good" and "bad" bacteria for colonization of the digestive system. Good bacteria fill important roles in digestion, while bad bacteria contribute to illness and disease. Infections, poor diet, stress, overuse of anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs), antibiotic use, and even chlorinated water can deplete or destroy the healthy bacteria living in the human digestive system. This can allow undesirable bacteria to flourish and compromise digestive system function, nutrient absorption, intestinal health, and immunity.
Digest Caps is your ticket back to digestive stability after any bout of intestinal distress. Daily use of Digest Caps also can help maintain high populations of beneficial bacteria to keep your intestines healthy and prevent the growth of unhealthy intestinal flora.
Maintaining healthy intestinal flora - top priority for athletes
Dr. Bill Misner writes, "Poor diet, stress, antibiotics, and aging can tend to increase the 'bad' (pathogenic) bacteria, which may be blamed for several gastrointestinal problems endurance athletes suffer from during extreme events. Probiotics are 'good' bacteria that are healthful for normal intestinal function that prevents harmful bacteria from causing stomach problems or worse, disease."
One well-known nutritionist writes, "Unhealthy flora can result in the liberation of abnormally high levels of ammonia as protein-containing foods are digested. This irritates the intestinal membranes. In addition, the ammonia is absorbed into the bloodstream and must be detoxified by the liver . . ." High blood levels of ammonia are linked to fatigue, so it simply makes sense to do all that you can to minimize ammonia production: for this reason, and many others, the wise athlete will make sure the "gut is healthy."

THE POTENT DIGEST CAPS FORMULA
L. acidophilus is a strain of healthy bacteria that aids the digestion of protein. It has anti-fungal properties, aids in the absorption of nutrients, and helps lower blood cholesterol levels.
B. bifidum and B. longum are two bacteria strains that are first introduced in the human body at birth through breast-feeding. These particular strains have an important role in breaking down dietary carbohydrate. They provide the proper environment for the manufacturing/synthesis of the B vitamins.
L. plantarum OM According to U.S. Patent # 5,895,758, L. plantarum OM "has proteolytic [the breaking down of proteins into simpler compounds], anti-viral, anti-retroviral, anti-bacterial, antimicrobial, and anti-tumoral characteristics and uses." With this impressive resume, it's no wonder that many have labeled L. plantarum OM a "Super Probiotic."
Consistent use of Digest Caps can give your digestive system the upper hand against the abuses today's world can inflict upon it. Digest Caps requires no refrigeration, so it's also an ideal travel companion (and valuable ally against traveler's diarrhea). Keep it out of direct sun and heat for maintaining maximum potency.View PDF
