Smidge DIGESTIVE Enzymes, 120 capsules

Organic 3, Smidge

Introducing Smidge Digestive Enzymes, a clean and comprehensive supplement to help you digest your food comfortably. So your body can absorb even more of the nutrients on your plate — without cramping, bloating, gas or constipation.*

And, if you’re new to a real food diet rich in healthy fats (hello, fat bombs!), Smidge have got your back. These enzyme capsules have three types of lipase that help digest fat.

They also include enzymes to help digest complex carbs in gassy foods like beans, cabbage and broccoli, and starchy foods like oats and rice. Their DPP-IV enzymes support the breakdown of casein and gluten.

As always, Smidge™ Digestive Enzymes are free of additives and common allergens, and made in small batches

Description

Why are digestive enzymes so important?

Enzymes are essential for healthy digestion and a healthy body. They work with other chemicals in the body, such as the stomach acid and bile, to help break down food into smaller molecules for a wide range of bodily functions critical for life.*

When we’re healthy, digestive enzymes are secreted along the digestive tract to break food down into nutrients and energy and then eventually be secreted out into waste matter. In other words, you can’t live without ’em.*

What types of food contain digestive enzymes?

You can find digestive enzymes in fungi, plants and in raw and cultured foods like yogurt, kefir, kimchi and other fermented veggies.

Are Smidge™ Digestive Enzymes safe for children?

Yes, but speak to your doctor first. Smidge™ Digestive Enzymes are safe for children 3 and over. For toddlers and sensitive adults, a smaller dose may be obtained by pulling apart the capsule, taking a small portion of the contents and mixing with food.

Warning: Smidge™ Digestive Enzymes are not recommended for children under the age of 3, unless otherwise prescribed by a physician.

Why isn’t my body producing enough digestive enzymes?

First, run this important question by your certified medical practitioner.

When your body doesn’t produce enough digestive enzymes (due to an increased consumption of highly processed food and chemicals), diseases of the stomach and small intestine begin to occur. Once the number and types of digestive enzymes produced naturally in our system is diminished, we may no longer have the ability to digest food and fight infection.

You may be able to improve digestive issues with the help of a quality enzyme supplement like Smidge™, in addition to removing sugars, grains, processed dairy, and industrial vegetable and seed oils from your diet (as directed by your doctor).*

What are the enzymes derived?

The enzymes are derived from Aspergillus (fungus) via fermentation. For this reason, we do not recommend the product for individuals who have an Aspergillus allergy. As always, consult with a certified medical practitioner, preferably one familiar with gut health, before starting any new supplement.

What’s the difference between Smidge™ Digestive Enzymes and Smidge™ HCl + Enzymes?

Smidge™ Digestive Enzymes is a digestive supplement for people who have adequate HCl (hydrochloric acid) levels but want to maximize their absorption of fats, proteins, minerals and other nutrients. It includes all the same enzymes as the Smidge™ HCl + Enzymes, plus additional enzymes to support the digestion of beans and other carbohydrates. You can even open up the capsules to consume, since it does not contain HCl and pepsin.

Smidge™ HCl + Enzymes is Smidges original formula that contains HCl and pepsin. It’s perfect for people who are following the GAPS Diet, restricting their grains and carbohydrate intake, and looking to restore their HCl levels and also maximize their absorption of fats, proteins, minerals and other nutrients.

Format

Capsule

  • Amylase
    The digestive enzyme amylase, found in saliva and pancreatic fluid, helps convert starch and glycogen into simple sugars.*
  • Glucoamylase
    A digestive enzyme naturally released by the small intestine. It helps break down carbohydrates and starch found in most veggies, for easy absorption by the body.*
  • Invertase
    This digestive enzyme is found in our mouths, and starts the process of chemical digestion. It also helps break down sugar into fructose and glucose.*
  • Lactase
    A digestive enzyme found in the small intestine of humans and other mammals. It’s essential to the complete digestion of whole milk, as it breaks down lactose, a sugar which gives milk its sweetness.*
  • Maltase
    This digestive enzyme is present in saliva and pancreatic juice, yeasts, bacteria and plants. It helps break down maltose and similar sugars to form glucose.* Maltose develops in many starchy vegetables like sweet potatoes, nuts and legumes when they’re digested or cooked.
  • Alpha-Galactosidase
    The digestive enzyme alpha-galactosidase is naturally found in green coffee beans, and several other plants and mammals, including humans. It’s been shown to reduce gas production following a meal rich in fermentable carbs by breaking down the sugar-fat complexes commonly found in hard-to-digest foods like broccoli, cabbage, peanuts and beans.* And it may be helpful in patients with gas-related symptoms.*
  • Beta-Glucanase
    Beta-Glucanase is a group of carbohydrate enzymes which breaks down bonds within beta-glucan, found in heavy grains like oats, barley and rye as well in fungi like candida.*
  • Phytase
    This digestive enzyme is a key to bone health.* Commonly found in plant material, it helps break down grains, legumes, seeds and corn.
  • Protease Peptidase Complex
    One of the few digestive enzymes found in the pancreas and the stomach that helps with the breakdown of proteins like gluten and casein, rich in the amino acid, proline.* They also play a vital role in blood clotting and cell division.*
  • Lipase
    This digestive enzyme — produced in the pancreas, mouth and stomach — helps break down dietary fats so the intestines easily absorb them. It also allows nutrients and waste to move through cellular walls.*
  • Cellulose (base for encapsulation)
    Cellulose is a naturally occurring substance (ie a long chain of sugar molecules) that’s an important cellular component of green plants. We chose this ingredient to satisfy the needs of our most sensitive customers.
  • Vegetarian Capsule
    Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC), water. Our vegetable (vegan) capsules consist of only two ingredients: HPMC and purified water. HPMC is derived from vegetable cellulose of either pine or poplar. 100% natural, these capsules contain no preservatives, no gelatin, wheat, animal by-products or starch.
