A healthy digestive system is essential to receiving the proper vitamins and nutrients from food and making it possible for the body to get the most out of these nutrients without any of them going to waste. The digestive system should properly digest the food, absorb the nutrients, and eliminate the waste. Some people do not have a healthy digestive system and their body does not get what it needs from the food. A dietary supplement such as Ortho Molecular Products' Ortho Digestzyme is beneficial in the process of properly digesting foods. The supplement contains a blend of natural ingredients that work together to ensure the digestive system works like it should. These ingredients include Papain, Bromelain, Ox Bile Extract, Betaine HCI USP, and Pancreatin USP. Pancreatin is essential for breaking down starches and proteins that come from foods. The Ox Bile Extract aids in fat digestion and the Bromelain aid in protein digestion. It is recommended that individuals take one to two capsules per day at least 15 minutes before eating a meal.
