Digestive Enzymes Supplement

Digestive enzymes help break down and digest the food you eat, including difficult to digest gluten and casein hidden in a lot of foods. Powerful, broad-spectrum enzymes, like those in Jigsaw's Essential Blend Digestive Enzyme Supplement, can support the body's ability to break down and digest the foods that are associated with occasional bloating and indigestion. Supplemental enzymes can free you up to eat the foods you like— even if your GI tract doesn't always like them.*

Gluten, Casein and Lactose

Some proteins are harder to digest than others. Gluten, casein and lactose are the most challenging. However, a powerful digestive enzyme supplement can help your body break them down when they are in the foods you eat— and you can feel your best after every meal.*

"...digestion and absorption have been a big problem for me... discovering effective digestive enzymes has helped me in so many ways! I love this product because it is very potent and broad spectrum... one of the very few enzymes that can actually digest most of the casein and gluten hidden in a lot of foods when I eat out."

What Makes Jigsaw's Digestive Enzyme Supplement Different?

After reviewing some of the newest research available, we decided to make three significant changes in our Essential Blend Digestive Enzymes formula. All of these changes truly set it apart from other digestive enzyme supplements on the market, and deliver health benefits beyond just enhanced digestion.*

 

Change #1:

First, we took out all the enzymes designed to break down carbohydrates (with the exception of those targeting milk sugars, since many people benefit from a little added support for healthy digestion of lactose). We did this because the newest data show that our bodies are actually better off WITHOUT improved carbohydrates digestion.*

Accelerating carbohydrate digestion can actually spike blood sugar, which can have several undesirable effects. One of which is that the increased insulin can turn more carbohydrates and digested sugars into fat. The spike in blood sugar is also often followed by a noticeable drop that many people actually feel as reduced energy.*



Change #2:

Second, we took out the enzymes targeting fat digestion. Studies are now showing that the more undigested fat that passes through the gastrointestinal system, the more toxins that are excreted through the bowels.1*

Dr. Walter Crinnion — an Environmental Specialist, and author of Clean, Green and Lean — pointed out that it is much better NOT to increase digestion of fat because fat is one of the main vehicles the body uses to carry toxins out of the body.*



Change #3:

Third, we added even more enzymes to break down protein — PLUS Betaine HCl to promote ideal pH for enzyme function and protein digestion.*

As we age — and when ongoing health challenges are present — digestion of protein is one of the most important areas to focus on for whole health. We NEED protein to be digested into amino acids in order to supply the body with the materials needed to build and maintain virtually everything in the body. Without amino acids, our bodies literally break down over time. Amino Acids are the body's primary building blocks.*

Also, when poorly digested food proteins slip into the bloodstream, they can trigger a cascade that leads to food allergies. So the complete digestion of proteins is a critical function of the digestive system. Casein and gluten are well-known as two of the most difficult proteins to break down, so it's no surprise that these often show up as food allergens.

Our new formula provides focused support for breaking down hidden or trace amounts of gluten and casein that can show up in many modern foods. With this new formula, we have dramatically increased support for the body's natural ability to digest these proteins— unlocking the amino acids inside so they are released and available to help build and maintain our health every single day.*

 

Want To Enhance Your Digestive Health?

Jigsaw's digestive enzymes supplement creates an incredibly effective foundation for enhancing digestive health— and ultimately whole health, since the whole body benefits from healthy digestion of nutrients.*

Sure, enzymes can support healthy smooth-feeling digestion, but our Essential Blend Digestive Enzymes Supplement does much more:*

  • Support digestion of hidden wheat and dairy ingredients (especially gluten, casein and lactose) found in many pre-packaged and processed foods.*
  • Promote healthy protein digestion and utilization of amino acids from protein in meals.
  • Supplement the natural function of the pancreas in producing digestive enzymes.*
  • Support the absorption of nutrients from food.*


What Can Digestive Enzymes Help Me With?

  • Promote healthy digestion.*
  • Support the digestive system in breaking down complex proteins into essential amino acids.*
  • Support the body's ability to absorb and assimilate nutrients.*
  • Support healthy energy levels, especially after large meals.*
  • Promote healthy digestion of dairy foods.*
 


What Makes Jigsaw's Digestive Enzymes Supplement So Effective?

  • Designed to work throughout the digestive tract in a wide pH range: from 3.0-8.0 this digestive enzymes supplement is especially helpful for those with varying pH levels in their bodies.*
  • Very powerful, broad spectrum enzymes support healthy digestion of dairy sugars and all types of proteins, including the difficult-to-digest casein and gluten found in many grains and breads.*
  • Comes in capsule form so that you can even break it open and sprinkle on food or in water for even faster action.*


Is Jigsaw's Digestive Enzymes Supplement A Good Value?

  • Contains proven, broad-spectrum enzymes that are more potent and effective than other commercially available enzymes.*
  • Suggested use is one capsule per meal — compared to the six or more suggested for other digestive enzymes supplements.
  • Costs just $.83 per day — compared to $6.92 per day for the top-selling digestive enzymes supplement.


Where Did The Formulation Come From?

Co-developed with the National Enzyme Company (NEC), one of the top enzyme manufacturers in the world, with more than 75 years of experience formulating enzymes.

Manufactured using the most stringent Good Manufacturing Practices.

 

What Does The "Essential Blend" Consist Of?

  • Proteolytic enzymes – Powerful enough to digest most gluten and casein found in grains and dairy. For instance, these powerful proteolytic enzymes digest the gluten and casein often hidden in foods eaten in restaurants.*
  • Alpha-galactosidase – Effectively breaks down the indigestible sugars (such as melibiose, raffinose and stachyose) that commonly occur in vegetables, especially in members of the legume and cruciferous families.*
  • BioCore™ Dairy – A proprietary blend of protease and lactase enzymes to support healthy digestion of dairy products and lactose.*
  • Betaine HCl – A metabolite of choline that is used in one of the pathways that converts homocysteine to L-methionine. It was added as a source of supplemental hydrochloric acid in order to support overall digestion, and to help lower the stomach's pH. This helps create an environment that promotes the effective activity of low-pH enzymes like pepsin.*


What Other Products Are Essential For Digestive Health?

Combining a highly effective digestive enzymes supplement with a potent probiotic, such as Jigsaw's Essential Blend Probiotics — which we sell along with the digestive enzymes in our Gastro Bundle — can be an essential first step toward promoting lasting whole health. We encourage you to consider this other wonderful and popular product that could offer additional benefits, and provide enhanced support for smooth, healthy, and effective digestion.*

Pros: Better digestion leads to increase in energy, stamina, more mental focus

Cons: Too many pills per meal results in loose stools, take a little at a time, test and see.

"Hi Patrick,



Patrick some of us do not digest foods well. I'm one of those people. I do not get gas, no bloating or apparent indigestion but almost an allergic reaction where I retain lots of water from eating most anything, then I get very constipated. The result is nausea, fast weight gain, fatigue and cravings for foods even after I'm full. I used to take diuretics and laxatives to help. With Jigsaw Enzyme Blend my own gastric digestive juices are enhanced and I digest my food and the constipation is gone. The cravings disappear and my energy is improved.



It's just amazing. A lot of people don't digest completely and could use one or two pills before each meal. I use 2 to 3 pills with each meal. I also use Ox bile in combination with he Jigsaw, also about 2 pills per meals. The only down side is that if you have too much digestive aid to food ratio, then you can get loose stools, so I have to make sure I eat enough for the pills to be utilized or just take fewer pills.



This has been a God-send for me. I've had this problem for years, went through many, many tests (tests for Celiac's, gluten sensitivity, even Cushings and Thalesemia! I had none of those) and doctors visits to find out what is wrong. No doctor could figure it out, but it's simple and now I know. I hope you remember this problem, many women have it to a lesser degree, it's the 'bloating' they complain about and can't figure out.



Please spread the word....thanks : )



Oh, the web site is great, too. My mom bought your product and that's how I

found out about it.

Jayne"

"I must commend Jigsaw Health for its all-around excellence. Though Jigsaw's digestive enzymes would probably be effective for most people, there were were a few enzymes that I needed additionally that another brand of enzymes contained, so I had to switch back.

Because Jigsaw offers a guarantee for their products, I called the customer service line, so I could be issued a refund. Normally, dealing w/ returns are a hassle, but I was impressed and pleased Jigsaw's customer service.

In a world where companies promise to do good & claim to strive for excellence, Jigsaw actually backs up every claim w/ their actions. I've experienced excellent service in all aspects, from ordering, shipping, and even returning.

The customer service reps are warm and friendly, and credits for goods are issued immediately. Every step is painless, and this is so greatly appreciated. Jigsaw's quality educational info is also a testament to its commitment to overall wellness."

I have a slight tendency towards indigestion and occasionally overindulge if the dinner is just too good, and in these circumstances, a digestive enzyme capsule is just what I need. For me, I find one is the correct dose. I really don't need more than that. Thanks for another fantastic product!"

Background Information:

There are more than 3,000 digestive enzymes in your body — lipases, proteases, and amylases — to help break down fats, proteins, fibers, and carbohydrates.

Prior to the turn of the century, most people got the enzymes they needed for digestion from raw or traditionally canned, pickled, or fermented foods. These enzymes would then work with the enzymes in the body to help digest food and give the body the nutrients it needs.

Since then, our society has developed modern large-scale canning and food processing methods utilizing excessive heat that kills off naturally occurring enzymes in food in order to preserve the food. Without these needed food-derived enzymes, the body has to rely entirely on its own enzymes for digestion.

Add to that a high-stress lifestyle and the tendency to overeat and eat on the run, you can see how people today can easily overwhelm their digestive systems. Occasional indigestion, constipation, bloating, and acid reflux are all the body's way of hinting that it isn’t digesting food properly or fully absorbing certain nutrients.*

Jigsaw Health Essential Blend Digestive Enzymes is one of the most powerful and comprehensive digestive enzymes supplements on the market today. It works throughout your digestive tract in a wide range of pH levels without being degraded in stomach acid.*

Essential Blend Digestive Enzymes also promotes the break down of hard-to-digest gluten (found in grains) and caseins (found in dairy products)  — both are often "hidden" in common processed foods and foods at restaurants. The unique BioCore™ Dairy blend also provides additional support for healthy digestion of dairy foods and lactose.*

Is supporting healthy digestion a key piece in your whole health puzzle? A digestive enzymes supplement may help your body absorb needed nutrients so you can start feeling your best.*

What is the gastrointestinal/digestive system, how does it work, and what does it need to function smoothly?
