Arguably, one of the most overlooked aspects of health and fitness is gut health. Regardless of how perfect your diet, training, hydration, and sleep is, if your gastrointestinal (GI) system isn’t functioning properly, then your overall health and performance will start to suffer.
Irrespective of your goals, it’s important to obtain a sufficient amount of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, fiber, vitamins, and minerals on a daily basis. Although your GI system takes on several roles in the body, one of its primary functions is to break down and absorb nutrients supplied by food and/or supplements. So if your gut isn’t running on all cylinders, then you’re likely missing out on vital nutrients that your body needs to recover, refuel, and perform.
In addition to breaking down and absorbing food, the GI system works hand-in-hand with your immune system to identify and prevent foreign pathogens from entering the body. Therefore, the better your gut health is, the less likely you may become sick.
Having a properly functioning gut will enhance the immune system, help you sustain a healthy body weight, and significantly improve your mood, energy, and performance. Needless to say, anyone and everyone could benefit from enhancing their gut health.
Now that you understand the importance of a healthy gut, let’s cover some signs that may indicate your gut health isn’t optimal.
The most common signs and symptoms of gastrointestinal dysfunction include:
If you’ve noticed one or more of these signs & symptoms, then it’s important to take a step back and start prioritizing your gut health.
Before taking any supplements, we strongly recommend assessing your diet, sleep, exercise, and stress levels to identify what could potentially be the root cause of your gastrointestinal issues. Many people rely on supplements to fix their problems, only to be disappointed with the outcome. So it’s important to look at your body from a more holistic perspective.
Here are some easy things that you can implement to improve your gut health:
As you can see, there are several ways to improve your gut health. After implementing the tips provided above, you could further promote gut health by supplementing with digestive enzymes and/or probiotics.
Digestive enzymes assist the body with breaking down and absorbing food, whereas probiotics are classified as good bacteria that reside in the gut and offer numerous health benefits.
That begs the question, which one should you choose?
Ideally, you should supplement with both, especially since they each have their own unique benefits. Fortunately, instead of buying probiotics and digestive enzymes separately, you can get an efficacious dose of both in DIGE-PRO from American Made Nutrition.
Unlike other companies that sell digestive enzymes and probiotics separately, we decided to combine the two into one comprehensive supplement rightfully named DIGE-PRO
What’s more, having a supplement that has digestive enzymes and probiotics is a lot more cost effective, beneficial, and convenient for us and our customers! It’s truly a win-win situation for you and your gut!
So what’s inside DIGE-PRO?
DIGE-PRO is a unique combination of a patented digestive enzyme blend (DigeSEB™) and 50 billion CFUs of four different strains of probiotics, including:
Using DIGE-PRO alongside meals will significantly improve the digestion and absorption of protein, carbohydrates, and fats, while promoting overall gut health and reducing gastrointestinal distress (e.g. gas, bloating, heartburn, etc.)
Supplementing with DIGE-PRO will:
Now that you know all about DIGE-PRO, let’s dive a bit deeper into its ingredients!
Probiotics, also referred to as good bacteria, are living microorganisms that offer numerous health benefits. Probiotics are naturally found in various foods, such as yogurt, kimchi, and sauerkraut. However, it’s difficult to consume enough probiotics on a daily basis from diet alone, which is why supplements are often recommended.
The purpose of supplementing with probiotics is to increase the number of good bacteria in the gut. Despite what you may think, having a sufficient amount of good bacteria is crucial for overall gut health. Good bacteria assists in the digestion and absorption of nutrients, removal of toxins and foreign pathogens, and reduction of harmful bacteria.
Unlike other probiotics, which only use one strain of bacteria, DIGE-PRO features four different strains for maximal benefits.
Every capsule of DIGE-PRO contains 50 billion CFUs of probiotics, which consist of:
Since the gut microbiome is incredibly complex and diverse, supplementing with a comprehensive selection of bacterial strains is potentially more beneficial.
Studies show that supplementing with probiotics may:
DigeSEB™ is a proven and effective enzyme blend developed by Specialty Enzymes & Probiotics. DigeSEB™ is included in DIGE-PRO to enhance the digestion and absorption of various nutrients. Digestive enzymes are essential for digestive health and supplementing with them can reduce the risk of gastrointestinal issues, such as gas, bloating, and heartburn.
Here’s an overview of each enzyme included DigeSEB™ and what substrate they act upon:
Supplementing with digestive enzymes may:
As you can see, the two active ingredients in DIGE-PRO have their own unique properties, functions, and benefits, which is why we decided to combine them into one phenomenal product!
For optimal results, take one serving (1 capsule) of DIGE-PRO per day, preferably with food.
DIGE-PRO stacks well with the following supplements:
Supplementing with digestive enzymes and probiotics is an affordable way to optimize your gut health. As always, you should be following a nutrient-rich diet, exercising regularly, and getting enough sleep, along with taking DIGE-PRO.
Regardless of how many supplements you take, that doesn't negate poor lifestyle choices. So make sure everything else is in check in order to get the most out of American Made Nutrition's supplements.
