All bacteria are not created equal. Infections, poor diet, stress, overuse of NSAID medications, antibiotics, 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. Containing substantial amounts of four potent strains of healthy bacteria, Digest Caps tilts the all-important balance of intestinal flora in favor of the "good guys". This helps prevent negative intestinal flora from wiping out your hard-earned training gains and compromising your health. If you're at risk due to any of the above-mentioned intestinal stressors, do yourself a favor by taking Digest Caps. Better yet, keep a bottle on hand so you'll always be ready to right the ship.
WHAT'S IN DIGEST CAPS:
L. Acidophilus is a strain of healthy bacteria that helps with the digestion of protein. It has anti-fungal properties, aids in the absorption of nutrients, and helps with lowering blood cholesterol levels. Strains of lactobacillus bacteria colonize the upper to lower part of the small intestine.
B. Bifidum and B. Longum are two 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. This particular strain colonizes the lower part of the small intestine to the large intestine.
L. Plantarum is commonly found in fermented products including sauerkraut, pickles, brined olives, Korean kimchi, Nigerian Ogi, sourdough, and other fermented plant material, some cheeses, fermented sausages, stockfish, and in human saliva. The ability of L. plantarum to produce antimicrobial substances helps them compete and colonize in the gastro-intestinal tract of humans. These antimicrobial substances produced by L. plantarum have shown significant suppressive effect on competing unfriendly disease-causing bacteria making it a valuable contributor to overall gut health.
Lactobacillus casei is a beneficial bacteria that is found naturally in both the mouth and intestines of human beings. L. casei is purported to help improve digestion, assist in reducing lactose intolerance, aid in controlling diarrhea, and may have anti-inflammatory properties in the gut. According to one nutritional scientist, L. casei is "a beneficial microorganism [that] helps to promote other beneficial bacteria [growth] and prevents the overgrowth of pathogenic bacteria in the human body. In particular it helps with the growth of beneficial bacteria such as Lactobacillus acidophilus."
Healthy intestinal flora balance helps prevent the liberation of high levels of ammonia caused by digestion of protein-containing foods. Digestion supplements like Digest Caps may help alleviate or even prevent ammonia-produced fatigue.
