| PIONEER® Digestive Enzymes & Herbs combines potent,
broad-spectrum digestive enzymes, from pancreatin, with
concentrated, traditional digestive herbs. This two-in-one
combination is clinician-designed to help provide nutritive
support for assisting and strengthening the digestive process.
Raw food naturally contains the proper types and proportion of enzymes to assist in its own digestion. Food enzymes are released by the action of chewing, which ruptures the food’s cell membranes. Like salivary enzymes, raw food enzymes play an important role in human digestion by predigesting food in the upper stomach, where contents may sit for as long as an hour before gastric secretions begin their action.
Since enzymes are essentially destroyed at 118ºF, most forms of cooking and industrial food preparation render food devoid of enzyme activity. This places the full burden of digestion on body processes and reserves. In time, this burden can weaken or overwhelm an individual’s ability to process and absorb vital food nutrients. Many health professionals believe that the prevalence of cooked and processed foods in modern society makes supplementation with digestive enzymes essential. Digestive enzymes also may be of benefit to those who experience poor digestion and absorption.
CONSIDER THESE PIONEER® ADVANTAGES:
1. Enzymes from Pancreatin: Targeting
2. Traditional Digestive Herbs. Meaningful levels of top
quality traditional digestive herbs–as concentrated extracts and
whole herb powders–truly distinguish PIONEER® Digestive Enzymes
& Herbs from other digestive enzyme products. The unique blend of
herbs in this formula may help benefit digestive health by serving as
digestive tonifiers (to help strengthen and soothe digestive membranes),
bitters (to help support digestive enzyme and bile secretions) and
carminatives. Digestive Enzymes & Herbs provides the equivalent of
815 mg raw herb per capsule:
3. Enterically Coated Capsule: Helps Preserve Enzyme Activity & Integrity. Pancreatic enzymes require a high pH, alkaline environment to remain active. These enzymes may be damaged if exposed to low pH, acidic conditions such as found within the stomach where the first stage of digestion takes place. To help prevent such premature exposure and loss of bioactivity, Digestive Enzymes & Herbs is offered in an enterically-coated cellulose capsule. Enteric coating is designed to help the capsules travel intact through the stomach into the higher alkaline environment of the duodenum, where pancreatic enzyme digestion normally begins. Enteric coating also helps to preserve and protect the peppermint oil in the herbal portion of the formula. Research suggests that enterically coated peppermint oil may help provide nutritive support for digestive ease and comfort.
4. Verified Gluten-Free. As with all PIONEER® formulas, Digestive Enzymes & Herbs is verified gluten-free by ELISA method laboratory testing. Current, sophisticated gluten testing methods may not be able to confirm the gluten-free status of vegetarian (fungal) digestive enzymes, many of which are produced in a wheat-based fermentation medium. However, animal-sourced pancreatic enzymes can be verified gluten-free. PIONEER proudly provides this assurance.
