  • Provides pancreatic enzymes containing protease, amylase, and lipase for broad-spectrum macronutrient digestion
  • Contains pepsin A that acts as a principal protease and key signal for optimal digestion
  • Ox bile promotes effective lipid and protein digestion, and targets metabolic function and intestinal flora composition

Feature Summary

BioDigest provides a comprehensive formula designed to enhance the digestion and absorption of carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, and micronutrients. A decline in acid production is associated with several conditions along with the normal aging process. This decline may impair the absorption of a variety of micronutrients (including zinc, iron, and vitamin B12) and contribute to bacterial overgrowth in the intestinal tract.1,2,3 The use of hydrochloric acid complexed with betaine and glutamic acid has been shown to normalize gastric pH among participants with impaired acid production, achieving a pH of less than 3 in under 10 minutes, and lasting over 70 minutes. This effectively improves the absorption of substances dependent upon low gastric pH.4,5
BioDigest also provides pancreatic enzymes designed to restore normal digestion to patients with impaired exocrine pancreatic function, with protease, amylase, and lipase activity for digestion of all macronutrients. The inclusion of ox bile not only promotes efficient lipid absorption, but bile acids have recently been shown to enhance the proteolysis of dietary protein as well.6 Additionally, bile acids upregulate brown adipose tissue activity, have antimicrobial activity in the small intestine, and have systemic metabolic and endocrine effects previously unrecognized, influencing thyroid function, metabolism, and glucose and lipid homeostasis.7–10 Finally, pepsin A is the principle gastric proteolytic enzyme, and its actions indirectly stimulate prodigestive functions by triggering gastrin and CCK release.11
