What is Digest-Ease™?
Digest-Ease™ is a powdered superfood produced with a patented slow drying technology. This technique protects the huge number of beneficial organisms and fragile vitamins and enzymes it contains.
"The root cause of many digestive difficulties is a lack of the digestive enzymes that facilitate this critically important bodily function. The lacto-fermentation of functional foods dramatically magnifies their nutritional value while repopulating the gut with a potent new workforce to support digestive health."
100 trillion beneficial microorganisms should inhabit the full length of the 30-foot digestive tract from mouth to anus, proliferating in the large intestine. In many cases an enzyme-depleted diet of processed foods rains down upon a biological terrain sadly lacking in enzyme-producing organisms.
Contains pre-digested amino acids and other nutrients.
Includes a rich lode of digestive enzymes crucial for nutrient uptake.
Features massive numbers of enzyme-producing gut organisms.
Contains prebiotics – materials that enhance beneficial intestinal flora.
Includes the many benefits of pre-digested wheat grass & barley grass.
A gentle dehydration process maximises probiotic activity.
Digest-Ease™ contains luxury levels of eighteen amino acids in a pre-digested form. These aminos are derived from organic cereal grains and legumes that have been biologically processed with a unique fermentation process called FloraFerm™.
Young cereal grasses contain luxury levels of enzymes. Wheatgrass drinks have gained popularity worldwide as people recognise the obvious benefits of a daily dose of enzymes. Digest-Ease™ involves the fermentation of wheat grass, barley grass and alfalfa grass.
The smorgasbord of dormant digestive organisms in Digest-Ease™ are re-activated forty minutes after ingestion. Lactic acid organisms like acidophilus, bifidus, delbruekii, caseii, bulgaricus, caucasicus, fermenti, plantarum, brevis, helveticus, leichmanii and lactis are combined with two beneficial yeasts called Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Saccharomyces boulardii in a proprietary blend that eclipses others on the market.
Probiotic supplements are far more effective in the presence of a prebiotic – a substance that supports gut flora. The most well-documented prebiotic is a fibre material called fructooligosachharide (FOS), which has been shown to increase levels of key organisms like bifidus and acidophilus. Digest-Ease™ contains a natural source of FOS derived from organic whole rye and whole wheat.

I see that Digest-Ease™ contains soy? Isn't it bad for us?
Yes, the processed soy commonly found in the western diet should be avoided as much as possible. We use fermented soy in Digest-Ease™ and there is a big difference. Fermented soy has been an integral part of the Asian diet for thousands of years and has many health benefits.
How are the microbes alive?
The microbes are in a 'dormant' state, which is achieved using a patented drying process over 6 weeks. They are activated when they enter your digestive system.
Does Digest-Ease™ need to be refrigerated?
After opening, yes.
I am gluten Iitolerant/I have Celiac's Disease – can I still use this product?
We have had many cases of gluten intolerant people taking Digest-Ease™ without side-effects. The fermentation process seems to neutralise the reactions that many people experience. If you feel comfortable, we suggest trying a small amount and working your way up. Discuss this with your practitioner.
