Those who have dieted know that high protein and vegetable intake results in major gas and bloating.
Anyone who’s gotten their hands on our best-selling Athlete Digestive Formula (ADF) has made a point to NEVER run out. ADF helps complete the digestion process by supplying a full range of plant enzymes, organic minerals, and all 9 strains of probiotics. Its ingredients are proven to eliminate the gas and bloat that’s often experienced in the fitness community.
You’re probably thinking, “Doesn’t my body and the food I eat already have enzymes in it? Why do I need to supplement with more?” And you’re right. Your body and raw food already contain enzymes. Your body contains its own team of digestive enzymes ready to attack any food that comes its way. However, our body’s enzymes cannot digest genetically modified or processed foods as the makeup of these foods has changed. Raw food can digest itself. No help needed. Think of an apple that’s been cut in half and left on the kitchen counter. Over time, the apple starts to turn brown, due to its naturally occurring enzymes working to break it down. However, once that raw food is cooked over 118 degrees or is processed in any way, its enzymes are stripped. This means that when you eat that food, your GI system is left without a team of allies to help break down that food to its usable form. These undigested food particles cause gas, bloating, and heartburn.
Athlete Digestive Formula is your digestion system’s ally. Supplementing with the needed enzymes, minerals, and probiotics will allow your body to fully digest all foods, eliminating the discomfort of bloat, gas, and heartburn.
Many people believe that they have “intolerances” to gluten, lactose, or casein due to the uncomfortable pain they feel when eating those foods. However, a food intolerance is proven to be no more than your body lacking in the specific enzyme to break down that food. For example, if you are lactose intolerant, your body lacks the enzyme lactase, and therefore, is unable to break down lactose to a usable form.
The easy answer may seem to simply remove those foods from your diet. However, lactose, gluten, and casein can be found in hundreds of thousands food products, making total elimination a challenge. They even hide in foods you wouldn’t expect, such as deli meats, artificial flavorings, protein powders and bars, some cheeses, alcohol and flavored coffees. Even over the counter medications, prescriptions and lip balms can contain gluten, casein, lactose or other modified food molecules.
Wouldn’t the easier alternative be to supplement those lacking enzymes back into your body? This option will not only eliminate the discomfort of food intolerances, but also allow you to enjoy those foods.
The complete array of digestive enzymes in ADF can take care of the big three problem molecules. ADF is a digestion enhancer that is scientifically formulated to break down genetically altered gluten proteins and their proline-rich gliadin and glutenin peptide from grains, along with lactose and casein proteins from dairy.
It’s the Non-Digestion of Food--Not the Food Itself--That’s the Problem
As we mentioned, gluten, lactose, casein and other food nutrients are not the problem. It’s not being able to digest these compounds that causes health issues.
Gluten intolerance is a more recent development, and against popular opinion, it isn’t a food allergy. It’s a physical condition in your gut. Undigested gluten proteins (prevalent in wheat and other grains) hang out in your intestines and are treated by your body like a foreign invader, irritating your gut. Not digesting gluten proteins can lead to inflammation, hormonal imbalances, skin conditions, fatigue, mood swings, and headaches.
For some people, removing gluten from their diet is enough to heal their gut. Others aren’t quite so lucky. However, for both parties, supplementing with ADF can help either quell the problem before it rises, or solve the digestive problem.
Most babies are born with the ability to digest lactose. We naturally produce the enzyme lactase in our gut. It is needed to break lactose down into glucose and galactose, which can then be absorbed into the bloodstream and used for energy. It is very rare to see lactose intolerance in children under the age of five, yet currently, about 75% of the world's population is lactose intolerant.
However, the human body isn’t designed to digest dairy products outside what we get from our mothers, and even that is temporary. It’s common for humans to stop producing lactase after a certain age. So, if you’re mixing your protein powder with milk, you may be inadvertently putting your gut in a world of hurt. Ensuring your body has the lactase enzymes to digest that milk and your protein powder, by supplementing with ADF, can rectify the situation.
Casein is the main protein found in milk, including human milk, making up 80% of it, and is found in a high majority of protein powders. An allergic reaction to casein occurs when the immune system mistakes the molecule as something the body needs to fight off. It usually crops up in infancy and people grow out of it, but that is not always the case. Casein allergies are challenging to deal with, especially if you have to take steps to avoid an anaphylactic reaction.
Casein is hard to digest. There’s no two ways about it. Casein proteins are soluble in milk but form insoluble curds once they reach the stomach, making it hard for our body’s naturally occurring enzymes to break them apart. The digestive enzymes in ADF help ensure that casein is properly and thoroughly digested.
The detrimental effects of not digesting gluten, lactose, and casein or any highly processed food can be severe. Symptoms include bloating, abdominal discomfort, pain, gas, diarrhea, nausea, headaches, migraines, fatigue, attention deficit, hyperactivity, muscle disturbance, eczema, as well as bone and joint pain.
Major diseases such as celiac disease, diabetes, heart disease, autoimmune diseases, premature aging, stomach cancers and more have been linked to improper digestion.
Eliminate Bloat, Gas, and Food Intolerance
Athlete Digestive Formula has a targeted blend of cultivated digestive enzymes, along with acid stable probiotics, that can survive the acidity of your stomach and make it into your gut, where digestion takes place. ADF is the most complete and powerful digestion supplement available for gluten, lactose and casein sensitive people. For those individuals that do not suffer from intolerances, ADF is the perfect addition to your diet to remove any bloating, gas, or heartburn from eating processed or cooked foods.
