Quantum Digest offers the most potent delivery available of once living, plant-source enzymes to support and enhance the body’s own enzyme production. Quantum Digest is made using a breakthrough proprietary fermentation process using Aspergillus to yield the most highly purified, unheated, fully active enzymes.This revolutionary process yields the highly purified enzymes, free of any toxic Aspergillus residues, thereby eliminating any risk of immune system compromise. Quantum Digest delivers a broad spectrum of the most potent and purest source of plant enzymes. It contains all three typical enzymes: protease, amylase and lipase, but it also contains special enzymes: invertase, lactase, maltase and cellulase.
Enzymes: Critical to Life
Tiny, highly active substances called enzymes play an amazing role in digestion. Enzymes function as protein catalysts. A catalyst speeds up or slows down a chemical reaction in the body. In digestion, enzymes are produced by the body to help completely break down food for proper absorption. Enzymes in the body are critical to all known life processes. Without enzymes, life could not exist.
Raw Food Vs. Cooked Food
All uncooked foods naturally contain a wide variety of enzymes. When we eat uncooked food, these enzymes are highly active and promote the digestion of the food itself. Recent research has now shown that our digestive enzyme systems gradually wear out with use, especially if we eat a predominantly cooked food diet. The process of cooking food destroys the enzymes inherent to the food, which requires our body to produce larger amounts of these enzymes in order to digest the food.
A lifetime of eating mostly cooked food hastens the failure of our natural enzyme production systems
When cooking food, the higher the heat, the worse the destruction of enzymes. For example, whole wheat bread baked at 350 degrees requires our bodies to make far more digestive enzymes than eating soup that was heated only at boiling temperature (212 degrees F.).
To digest food properly, especially cooked food, the body first releases ptyalin in the mouth as you chew the food. Next, as the food enters the stomach, the stomach secretes hydrochloric acid and pepsin to continue breaking down the food. Then, the food travels to the small intestine, where it will spend several hours being digested. Finally, the pancreas releases three main digestive enzymes: protease to digest protein; lipase to digest fat; and amylase to digest carbohydrates. Unfortunately, the ability of the pancreas to produce these enzymes slowly declines with age. The more cooked food we consume, the sooner the body’s capacity to make enzymes declines. In addition, the body’s ability to produce enzymes can diminish dramatically with stress.
Good Digestion = Good Health
An efficient digestion can help enhance your immune system’s response. With good digestion, the body can destroy harmful organisms naturally present in food before they can gain entry to the body. Good digestion also prevents the entry of incompletely digested food particles into the blood. An efficient digestive process promotes complete digestion of food which can mean a healthier intestinal tract, healthy blood lipids, improved mineral absorption, healthy blood glucose levels, healthy blood triglyceride levels and may even help prevent tooth decay.
Poor Digestion = Poor Health
In contrast, a poor digestive system can allow the blood to become more toxic due to incompletely digested food particles absorbed through the bowel into systemic circulation.
