Absorbaid by Nature's Sources
AbsorbAid™ is the vehicle that delivers nutrients to the blood.
What s the sense of eating well and taking supplements if your body isn't absorbing the nutrients? As we age, our body's ability to produce digestive enzymes decreases. By the time we reach the age of 20, we lose 13%, of our enzyme production every 10 years. That's why many people become lactose-intolerant, as they get older. They stop producing the enzyme lactase which breaks down dairy products. The ingredients in AbsorbAid™ helps you digest all food groups, including dairy and fats.
Results from Mayo Clinic and Roche Laboratories show that AbsorbAid™ increases absorption up to 71%. AbsorbAid increases the absorption of selenium by 20%, Omega 3's by 33% (fish and flaxseed oil), & Omega 6's (olive and primrose oil) 50% & zinc by 71%.
All-natural AbsorbAid™ is not a drug. It is safe for children and pregnant or nursing women. It even helps colicky infants.
THE NATURAL APPROACH...UNLIKE ANTACIDS and ACID BLOCKERS
Stomach acid always causes problems and should be controlled.
Stomach acid performs many important functions such as killing harmful bacteria that might be in our food. Stomach acid also helps digest proteins, and is essential for absorption of minerals, such as calcium.
I have too much stomach acid!
The average American's ability to produce stomach acid and digestive enzymes decreases as we age. The presence of stomach acid doesn't cause heartburn. Heartburn and acid reflux is caused by stomach acid splashing up into the esophagus where the unprotected walls become inflamed and cause discomfort.
What the Makers of Antacids and Acid Blockers don't want you to
By D. Ray Bayley, DC, DACBN (Board Certified in Nutrition)
Q: Why is it so important to have acid in our stomachs?
A: Stomach acid has many functions such as killing bad microbes. Stomach acid digests some of our food and it activates enzymes that digest more. This balance of acid and alkaline also encourages the growth of friendly microbes and discourages the growth of unfriendly microbes. The statistics are that THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE TAKING ANTACIDS AND ACID BLOCKERS ARE NOT PRODUCING ENOUGH STOMACH ACID TO BEGIN WITH. The symptoms that led to using antacids and acid blockers are more often due clinically to inadequate and too slow digestion.
Q: What Happens When We Use Antacids?
A: If the antacids actually do remove acid, then we are decreasing the positive benefits of acid noted above. Calcium antacids can be a cheap source of calcium if you can absorb and utilize that particular kind of calcium and if it doesn't encourage magnesium deficiency (common in Americans). Calcium is difficult to digest and absorb, acid plays an important role in that, and thus antacids can decrease the availability of the calcium you eat.
Q: Are acid blockers safe to use?
A: Acid blockers (e.g. Axid Axid®, Pepcid®, Tagamet®, Zantac®) are designed to decrease the ability of your stomach to produce acid -a doubtful benefit ...and an unnecessary one if improving digestion or getting rid of unfriendly microbes gets rid of the problem. We know that at least some acid blockers can seriously impair the ability of the liver to get rid of poisons. The list of acid blocker side effects reported in the literature is long and wide-ranging.
Summary of Scientific Studies
The list below lists nutrients, their food sources, function, and the percentage increase obtained when AbsorbAidÂ™ is added to the diet.
Selenium (Roche Labs); increased by 20%; Recent studies found that selenium reduced overall cancer incidences by 42%, and lung cancer was reduced by 69%, colorectal cancer, 64%. Women with the highest blood levels of selenuim were 5 times less likely to develop ovarian cancer.
Zinc (Roche Labs); increased by 71%; Zinc is important for many healthy functions such as good eyesight, good blood sugar control, important immune system functions, normal prostate and good sexual functions. Zinc also helps to make digestive acid that help protect the stomach and promote better digestion.
EPA Omega-3 (Mayo Clinic Labs); increased by 33%; EPA is used therapeutically in immune, rheumatic and other disorders. It is an essential part of metabolism & gets converted into anti-inflammatory and anti-pain chemicals. Food Sources: Cold water fish i.e.; Salmon, Mackerel, Herring Vegetable oils i.e.; Flaxseed, and Canola Linoleic Acid Omega-6 (Mayo Clinic Labs); increased by 50%; an essential fatty acid the body does not manufacture. Helps prevent hardening of the arteries, heart disease, premenstrual syndrome, multiple sclerosis and high blood pressure. Has a positive effect on sex hormone response; aids in lowering cholesterol levels; important in treating cirrhosis of the liver. Food Sources: Olive Oil, Safflower Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Flaxseed Oil.
Vitamin B6 (Vitamin Diagnostic); increased by 15%; Relieves many PMS symptoms (including breast tenderness, weight gain due to water retention, irritability); releases glycogen for energy; natural diuretic; necessary for the conversion of stored fat. Food Sources: Brewer's Yeast, Sunflower Seeds, Dry Lentils.
Ingredients & Actives*: Rice Starch
Lipase (1145 LL)
Amylase (8316 SkBu)
Protease, from Bromelain (36 GDU)
Cellulose (299 CU)
Lactase (900 LacU)
*Daily usage based upon 2 capsules with each meal. Activities should not be the only determination used to evaluate an enzymes' effectiveness.
For better digestion/absorption of nutrients and to avoid the symptoms of incomplete digestion, take 1-2 capsules or ¼ - teaspoon in 4-6 ozs. of water with each meal. (More should be used by individuals with compromised digestive systems). When you experience the annoyance of incomplete digestion, or for nighttime comfort, follow the above directions before bedtime.
