“Nature is the ultimate multi-tasker, achieving countless ends with a single action. Humans by contrast, are the only creatures who consciously isolate nutrients, actually believing that a single compound extracted from its natural element is better than the whole complex from which it originated. 

“Vitamins,” are in fact biological processes that occur when the right balance of nutrients is present in the body. Think of every vitamin as a jigsaw puzzle… Ascorbic acid, which most supplement companies fatuously label “Vitamin C” is at best, one piece of the actual biological process (jigsaw puzzle) known as “Vitamin C”. Taking ascorbic acid and expecting it to perform like real vitamin C is like ripping the steering wheel off your car, and actually expecting that amputated steering wheel to still get you where you need to go… ridiculous!

Enzymedica is so happy to have Ashley Whetung as one of our newest ambassadors. Let’s learn a little more about her, below!

1. What is your best kept work out secret?

I mix up my gym training between periods of heavy training and higher reps. That way I don't tire out my central nervous system, and I keep my body working hard without getting used to my sessions. For cardio, I go for walks with my dogs or play lacrosse. I would rather have fun than stare at myself on a treadmill or bike. If need be, I put a stationary bike in front of the TV and watch a lacrosse game or skiing, and pretend I'm part of the action.

Season of overeating: occasional gas and bloating* by Justin Bohager

Season of overeating: occasional gas and bloating*

Large meals are hard to avoid, especially around holidays and special events. Surrounded by our families and friends, it may feel nearly impossible to say no to seconds or thirds. The food may be delicious, but the digestive discomfort, followed by occasional gas and bloating, is less than desirable and all too common. In fact, digestive distress has been reported to affect over 95 million Americans.i

Why is it that we experience distress after we overeat? The answer may be found, not only in the content of our meal, but also in the size of the meal we consumed. When we overeat, maybe after going back for second or third helpings, the sheer size of the meal may overfill our stomach and cause it to stretch. Similar to a balloon that’s been filled with too much air; our stomach (when overfilled) may grow larger and stretch thinner than normal.

Now, our stomach acid cannot cover and break down the food in the stomach as fast as it normally could.

Fun Enzymedica mention on late night podcast

Between moving out of my parents house and getting married, I lived on my own for around 9 months. I didn't have roommates, I didn't have cable, I didn't have wifi. It was just me, alone, learning how to provide for and take care of myself. A trial run of adult hood. Now, I wasn't just sitting in the center of an empty house listening to the echoes of my own voice. For one, my brother gave me an xbox as a gift. And two, I discovered the wonder of podcasts.

Supplemental Probiotics and Enzymes: Two Partners that are Not to be Confused or Separated

Dr. M. Mamadou

 

Very often I hear people say: “Don’t probiotics make enzymes? So why should I take enzymes? I take probiotics, so I don’t need supplemental enzymes”.

Another confusing statement is: “Enzymes, especially proteases, destroy the probiotics, so I cannot take enzymes”.

There are various other incorrect views related to probiotics and enzymes that are prevalent within the dietary supplements market.

The objective of this paper is to describe the characteristics related to probiotics and enzymes and hopefully help clarify the misconceptions.

Supplemental Digestive Enzymes: An Alternative Approach in Occasional Heartburn and Digestive Insufficiencies By Dr. M. Mamadou

Supplemental Digestive Enzymes: An Alternative Approach in Occasional Heartburn and Digestive Insufficiencies

Dr. M. Mamadou


Heartburn is the symptom most commonly associated with gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD). As described in a previous paper, heartburn is caused by the effect of the gastric acid on the lining of the esophagus. Contrary to the stomach lining that is protected from the high acid by a special mucus layer, the esophagus and other parts of the digestive system are not: they are very sensitive to the acid and could be seriously damaged.

As heartburn is a very painful and debilitating condition, it is important and necessary to find ways to prevent its occurrence and/or alleviate the discomfort it causes. There are several approaches or products currently used to address the symptoms of heartburn.

As in many health conditions, only addressing the symptoms without remedying the causative agent(s) is not a long term solution. Furthermore, any therapeutic approach that only addresses symptoms will only create many other health challenges that could ultimately lead to morbidity.

Enzymes: The Missing Link For Optimal Digestion by Steven Lamm, MD

Steven-LammEnzymes:  The Missing Link for Optimal Digestion

Steven Lamm, MD 

Don’t feel alone if you experience tummy troubles. According to the American College of Gastroenterology, over 95 million Americans suffer from poor digestion.1 GERD and constipation are the top two most common outpatient care diagnoses among adults, and children under age 15 experience digestive issues as frequently as adults ages 65 years and older.2 Proof of this is seen in the multi-billion dollar digestive aid industry and on the shelves of your local pharmacy—stacked high with antacids, laxatives, fiber products, and more. The problem is endemic. Why?

The major culprit is our modern cooked diet which destroys the natural enzymes found in raw foods that aid in digestion. Another reason is the body’s own diminishing ability to produce enzymes as we age. Add to that our love of processed, refined and fatty foods. It’s no wonder that so many of us frequently suffer from occasional bloating, gas, indigestion, poor absorption, and constipation. Illness and antibiotics also deplete the natural enzymes in our body.

“Enzymes are biologically active proteins that are critical to every biochemical reaction in the body and necessary for good health,” says board certified internist Steven Lamm, MD.‡ “In my practice, some of the most common complaints relate to digestion, bloating and gas. I’ve found that by changing how we eat and using supplements such as probiotics and enzymes can improve the entire digestive process which is critical for health maintenance,” he explains.
