Two Phase Digestive Enzyme Capsule
Works in the Stomach and Intestine
Exclusive Enteric Matrix Formula
Allows for pH Sensitive Release
DIGESTIN™
Two Phase Digestive Enzyme Capsule
Different enzymes are active at different pH levels. The exclusive enteric matrix formulation of
Digestin allows for two phase, pH sensitive release of the contents of the capsule, with some of
the enzymes being released in the stomach or gastric phase and others in the upper intestine or enteric phase.

Proper digestion is a requirement for optimum
health, and incomplete or disordered digestion
can be a major contributor to the development of
many diseases. Not only are foods and nutritional
substances of little benefit when breakdown and
assimilation are inadequate, but also, incompletely
digested food molecules can be inappropriately
absorbed into the systemic circulation. This can
lead to various diseases and the development of
food allergies.(1)
Enzymatic action originates in four areas: the salivary glands, the stomach, the pancreas and the
wall of the small intestine. Each enzyme is capable
of breaking down only a specific substance. For
example, an enzyme capable of breaking down
fats cannot break down proteins or carbohydrates
or vice versa.(2)

Other Ingredients: cellulose, powdered stearic acid (vegetable), magnesium stearate (vegetable).
Recommended Use: One or two capsules with each
meal, or more, depending on the size of the meal.
Contraindications: Individuals with peptic ulcer should
not use a digestive aid containing HCl.
Gastric Phase Releases Pepsin and HCl
The stomach is primarily responsible for digestion
of proteins and ionization of minerals. The stomach secretes gastric acid (hydrochloric acid) and
various hormones and enzymes. (1) In Digestin
capsules, the gastric release phase provides the
protein digestive enzyme, pepsin; betaine HCl as
a source of hydrochloric acid; and stomach substance to provide growth and repair factors for the
stomach.
Although much is said about hyperacidity (as often occurs with peptic ulcers), probably more significant health problems are caused by lack of gastric acid secretion. There are many symptoms and
signs that suggest impaired gastric acid secretion,
and a number of specific diseases have been
found to be associated with insufficient gastric
acid output.(1,3,4)
Several studies have shown that the ability to secrete gastric acid decreases with age. Low stomach
acidity has been found in over half of those over
age 60.(1,5,6,)
Common symptoms of low gastric acidity include:
n Bloating, belching, burning and flatulence immediately after meals.(1)
n A sense of “fullness” after eating.(1)
n Indigestion, diarrhea or constipation.(1)
n Multiple food allergies.(1)
n Nausea after taking supplements.(1)
n Itching around the rectum.(1)
(over)
Other signs of low gastric acidity include weak,
peeling and cracked fingernails, dilated blood
ve s s e l s i n th e c heeks and nose (in nonalcoholics), acne, iron deficiency, chronic intesti-
nal parasites or abnormal flora, undigested food
in stool, chronic candida infections and gas in
the upper digestive tract.(1)
Enteric Phase Releases Digestive Enzymes and Bile
The small intestine participates in all aspects of
digestion, absorption and transport of ingested
materials. It secretes a variety of digestive and
protective substances as well as receiving the secretions of the pancreas, liver and gallbladder.(1)
Diseases involving the small intestine often result in malabsorption syndromes characterized
by multiple nutrient deficiencies. Common
causes of malabsorption include celiac disease
(gluten intolerance), food allergy or intolerance,
intestinal infections and Crohn's disease.(1)
In Digestin, the enteric release phase supplies
pancrelipase, cellulase, duodenal substance and
ox bile extract to the small intestine.
n Pancrelipase is a standardized preparation of
porcine pancreas which contains enzymes,
principally lipase which digests fats, along
with amylase which digests starch, and protease which digests protein. It’s action is the
same as that of pancreatic juices.
n Pancreatic lipase, along with bile, functions
in the digestion of fats. Deficiency of lipase
results in malabsorption of fats and the fat
soluble vitamins.(1)
n Bile aids in the production of an alkaline reaction in the intestines and is essential for absorption of fats. (12) Bile emulsifies the fats,
permitting intestinal and pancreatic lipases to
split the triglycerides into diglycerides and
monoglycerides, and finally into free fatty acids and glycerol.(7)
n Papain is a protein digesting enzyme isolated
from the unripe papaya fruit. It has been
shown to be able to digest wheat gluten (the
protein portion of wheat) and render it harmless in celiac disease subjects. Taking a papain
supplement with meals may allow some individuals to tolerate gluten.(1,9,10)
n Cellulase hydrolyzes the plant fiber carbohydrate, cellulose. Although cellulose cannot be
digested by humans, it is partially digested
by the microflora of the intestine. This natural fermentation process is an important
source of short chain fatty acids. Abnormal
intestinal flora is a common sign of digestive
problems related to low gastric acidity.(1)
The proteolytic (protein-digesting) enzymes and
bile also serve to keep the small intestine free of
parasites (including bacteria, yeast, protozoa
and intestinal worms).(1,11)
It is important to remember that digestive problems are caused by some glandular or organic
dysfunction. While the digestive aid is being
used, the glands or organs involved should also
be treated.
In cas es o f pancreatic ins ufficien cy ,
supplementation with pancreatic enzymes is
also recommended.(1) Pan 5X and Pan 10X are
excellent high potency pancreatic enzyme supplements.
