Proper digestion is a prerequisite for optimal health. Unless digestive physiology is in order, no other self-regulating or self-healing systems are able to perform in normal states. Devacor ADS by Arthur Andrew Medical is the best choice for maintaining optimal digestion. Since immune function first requires effective digestion, the obvious first course of action in an immune dysfunction would be to support effective digestion. Our immune systems can be viewed as a cohesive network of tireless workers, constantly screening our cellular boundaries, to maintain both an internal quality control operation, and a strategic defense system. Devacor ADS is the natural first aid in adjunctive nutritional support. With it you can experience the health benefits of improved digestion through its revolutionary 2 stage digestive process. First, proteolytic enzymes optimized to work in a low pH environment break down food and bacteria along with the stomach acid. Then, after gastric emptying occurs, Potassium and Sodium Bicarbonate are released, alkalizing the digestive tract and allowing for optimal absorption.
Devacor ADS can be used safely in patients with known sensitivities to beef, pork, or pineapple, unlike other commonly used digestive aids. Devacor ADS supplements the individual's own secretions of pancreatic enzymes, allowing for more complete digestion of foods. Amylase, Protease, and Lipase (that digest carbohydrates, proteins, and fats) all require an alkaline pH for maximum activity. To insure that a sufficiently alkaline medium is present, sodium and potassium bicarbonates (normal components of pancreatic juices) have been added in the correct physiological ratio of 2:1. Devacor ADS is an all-natural product which can be effectively used to supplement a patient's low pancreatic enzyme production or augment food factors that may be missing from the diet.
The food we eat has three major components: Carbohydrates, Fats/Oils, and Proteins, which are digested in our body by enzymes amylase, protease, and lipase, respectively. Digestion begins in mouth where the enzyme Ptylin in saliva breaks down starches into more simple sugars. Once the food is swallowed it comes in contact with the hydrochloric acid and enzyme pepsin in the stomach where the digestion of proteins start. In about half an hour the food reaches the intestine, where it is exposed to digestive enzymes secreted by the pancreas, which digests proteins, starches and fats. Gall bladder secretes bile while emulsifies and helps in digestion of fats.
A healthy body produces all these enzymes in sufficient quantities to ensure proper digestion of food. In some people enough quantities of these enzymes are not produced, and they often get the common symptoms of indigestion such as gas, bloating, heartburn and constipation. In such cases, supplementing the natural enzymes secreted by our body ensures that the food is digested properly. Digestive enzymes preparations aid our body enzymes in digestion of food.
People who are lactose intolerant typically experience stomach bloating, gas, cramps and diarrhea. Symptoms usually appear 30 minutes to 2 hours after eating and vary by individual and the type and quantity of dairy foods consumed. Devacor uses the highest potency lactase enzymes available. When taking lactase digesting enzymes like those in Devacor ®, you should take it with the first bite of the dairy product for maximum effectiveness. Taking it too soon before a meal, or too late after consuming dairy reduces the product's ability to interact with the dairy products in the digestive system.
The enzymes Bromelain and Papain both work on the digestion of proteins. Bromelain attacks the long chain polypeptides of the proteins ingested, and breaks them down via hydrolysis to shorter chain peptides. These peptides are subsequently hydrolyzed by Papain into basic amino acids or lower molecular weight peptides. These three enzymes are optimized to work in the proper pH range of the environment they are introduced into, making them powerful digestants when combined with the body’s own stomach acid.
