Description:

Digest Relief Zone™ provides nutritional support for the production of hydrochloric acid in the stomach, and consequentially, the digestion of protein. Improvements in stomach acids are positively correlated to improvements in the absorption of minerals. Allergies that are the result of antigens from poorly digested proteins may also improve from improved acid digestion. The gastric glands secrete hydrochloric acid and pepsinogen. Pepsinogen is converted to pepsin when it comes into contact with hydrochloric acid. Pepsin is a potent enzyme for the digestion of protein, but it will only work in an acid environment. For this reason an effective gastric digestive supplement needs to not only supply pepsin, but also provide hydrochloric acid for increased acidity. The ideal stomach pH is 2 and pepsin will mostly lose its ability to break down protein if the pH is over 5.  

Pepsin is particularly useful in the digestion of meat, due to its function in breaking down the collagen fibres. Without this primary process, the final digestion of proteins from the pancreatic enzymes will not succeed. Inadequate protein digestion can lead to the accumulation of allergy-forming protein metabolites or even the putrefaction of material in the colon. These problems can, in turn, lead to increases in systemic toxicity. The environment inside the intestine and colon can also become more conducive to the growth of pathogenic organisms. 
 
Inadequate gastric digestion is a common problem, which tends to become more common as people age. An increase in infections that originate from poor food hygiene is a common sign of low stomach acid, as a strong acid digestion process should kill pathogens during their passage through the stomach. 
 
Deficiencies in nutrients that are normally derived from the breakdown of protein are also important in low-acid malabsorption syndromes. The lack of stomach acids can therefore contribute to an almost infinite number of ailments. 
 
Digest Relief Zone™, like other products in the zone range, also contains enzymatically-extracted nucleic acids for added synergy. In Digest Relief Zone™ the extracts are a source high in B vitamins, as well as other nutrients commonly lacking in people with digestive insufficiency.
