Digestiv Features & Benefits
Digestive Enzymes - Fermentations
Cellulase - This enzyme is not directly produced by the body. Adding cellulase helps break down plant fibers. It can help stabilize blood sugar and cholesterol levels in the blood.
Peptidase - Helps break down protein into smaller units called peptides and amino acids. Peptidase helps immune function and can reduce biochemicals associated with inflammation such as bradykinins and eicosanoids.
Lipase - Helps break down fats and improve the nutritional value of fats and oils.
Alpha-galactosidase - Breaks down starches and carbohydrates such as greens and beans thus reducing bloating and gas.
Hawthorn berry extract - Strengthens the Stomach; promotes digestion - especially of red meat and oily or fatty foods; relieves food stagnation, discomfort, and abdominal fullness.

An Herbal Approach to Digestive Health
Effective digestion is critical to all activities in the body. Much of the discussion around digestion in recent years has focused on the health of the Microbiome - the trillions of organisms (bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungi) that especially populate the digestive tract. There are more of these organisms in each of us than there are human cells. Probiotics, i.e. healthy organisms, are often used to boost the ratio of healthy versus unhealthy organisms in your digestive tract. That can help, to a degree.
The approach that Plantiva has found most helpful is to improve the health of the organs that regulate the processing and transit time of nutrients as they move through the GI tract. If nutrients move too fast, poor assimilation, loose stools, and unhealthy microbiome organisms will develop. If nutrients move too slowly, acid reflux, bloating, sluggish bowels and different unhealthy microbiome organisms will develop. No matter how many healthy probiotic organisms you add, if one continues to promote the growth of unhealthy organisms, digestive troubles will persist.
Digestiv is a food-based concentrate that strengthens digestive organs to help normalize the transit time and processing of nutrients, creating a healthier environment for the organisms of the microbiome in your GI tract. For the many people with food sensitivities, Digestiv was designed to be used together with AllerDx®. Digestiv and AllerDx were formulated to strengthen and regulate the health of specific organs and glands, the true basis for establishing good health in both the short and long term.
Plantiva has spent over 20 years visiting and qualifying herb growers, developing analytical methods in our QC lab, and optimizing extraction processing methods in our R&D lab, before transferring them to production scale. We test both our raw materials and our finished products for a battery of quality indicators, including heavy metals, agrochemicals, and marker compounds. We guarantee our products' quality, purity and efficacy
