Dr. Wong's Essentials Digest Fuerte™ provides a blend of strong digestive enzymes including cellulase to more fully extract the nutrients from food and ease your digest process. No other digestive enzyme product is as potent or complete in its action as Digest-Fuerte. This blend contains enzymes that are actually fully active, ready to digest proteins, carbohydrates and especially fats. A great help to those with gall bladder problems who have difficulty digesting fats. We were the first digestive product to offer cellulase, the enzyme needed to break down the cell walls of plants so the nutrients inside the plant can be available to digestion. Humans have not made cellulase in 4 million years! Essential for vegetarians! One capsule should be able to help you digest a thanksgiving or Christmas feast!
The ginger, cinnamon and cayenne cause the body to secrete added digestive juices also improving digestion.
And finally the aloe vera extract and peppermint help to soothe and protect the digestive tract. Especially helpful with folks who are fighting GI inflammations and irritations! Those are to help prevent the digestion and passage of food from increasing bowel irritation and inflammation!
Peppermint Leaf Powder
Peppermint has a long history of use in aromatherapy and folk medicine for ailments such as vomiting, abdominal pain, indigestion and bloating. In Germany, the Commisson E monographs show peppermint leaf as being used to treat irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), in addition to other health concerns.
Cellulase is an enzyme that breaks down cellulose (major component of plant cell walls). Since humans do not produce cellulase, we can only partially break down cellulose through fermentation by the flora in the intestines which greatly reduces the nutrients we can utilize. As a result, in order to properly digest leafy greens, sprouts and herbs, we need to supplement Cellulase in our diet.
Amylase: Breaks down starches into sugars to be utilized by the body as energy. Lipase: Breaks down fats
Protease: An enzyme that begins the process of breaking down proteins for energy.
Papain breaks down proteins (meat fibres).
Pepsin breaks down proteins (meat fibres). It is one of the three primary protein-degrading enzymes in the digestive system. Allowing them to be more easily absorbed in the intestines.
