Nutrigea offers the most powerful tools to restore normal levels of intake of essential nutrients, such as minerals, vitamins, fatty acids, and natural nutraceutical molecules with anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory and neuro regenerating properties as well as' to restore normal vitality' and capacity of the gastrointestinal digestive tract.
Among these tools there are the most powerful gastrointestinal regeneration factors: the friendly bacteria and fungal-derived enzymes.
Always medical tradition places a strong link between health of gastrointestinal tract and general health of the organism.
Medical tradition has always placed a strong correlation between the health of the gastrointestinal tract and overall health. Modern science has clarified the numerous forms of this correlation, and amongst these, and particularly significant, is the “leaky gut syndrome” (Leaky bowel syndrome, i.e. micro-lesions of the intestinal membrane).
More and more trials demonstrate that an increasing number of individuals suffer from this disorder, which is characterized more specifically by the impairment of the intestinal membrane. An altered intestinal permeability allows the entry in the bloodstream of numerous substances: matter, ingested proteinous macromolecules, toxic molecules generated by the pathogenic bacterial flora.
Once these molecules in the bloodstream are recognized as foreign substances, they give rise to an immediate immune system reaction (which is why for over a century we speak of “digestive leucocytosis”, the increase in circulating leucocytes after a meal). They, therefore form the so called CIC (circulating immune complexes) which initially, is an efficient way for the body to neutralize toxic substances on the outside, but over time, their production becomes chronic
and excessive, thereby detrimental to our bodies, giving rise to chronic immune phenomenon such as allergies and intolerances, or those such as articular, cardiovascular, neurological injuries, etc. from which the main diseases of these systems derive. The best way to repair these serious and more common conditions is to integrate a diet with suitable probiotic and enzymatic dietary supplements: these friendly bacteria work to repair the intestinal membrane and protect it from pathogenic flora; enzymes prevent the risk that undigested molecules create lesions to the intestinal membrane, and when used systemically, they can neutralize the damaging molecules in circulation.
Obviously, probiotics and enzymes also have numerous other beneficial activities, from better assimilation of nutrients to the production of important vitamins, by direct and indirect stimulation of important immune defensive components against major degenerative phenomenon in the body.
Super probiotics Today, intestinal bacterial flora is susceptible to all kinds of aggressions (a poor diet, stress, antibiotic drugs, etc.), which can seriously damage functionality. This is why the integration of probiotics or friendly bacteria, especially acidophilus and bifidus, has become essential not only for the proper functioning of the intestine, but also to strengthen the natural
defenses of the body.
However, to be effective, the probiotics must absolutely surpass certain essential tests:
They must not loose their vitality over time. They must not be destroyed by passing through the gastric barrier and bile salts. They must be able to adhere to intestinal walls and proliferate and be able to compete with the pathogenic bacteria. They produce vitamins belonging to the group B and the enzymes necessary to digest any dairy products and stimulate the immune system’s response in the body.
Unlike most probiotics, and as demonstrated in numerous scientific literature, probiotic strains used by Nutrigea, such as the super-strain Acidophilus DDS-1 from Nebraskan Cultures, satisfy all these requirements and guarantee unparalleled efficiency in restoring the intestinal function and balance.
Our pancreas, fatigued for years by a poor diet and stress, can no longer produce sufficient amounts of digestive enzymes.
Furthermore, being involved in digestion, the pancreas reduces its capacity of producing systemic and immune enzymes. Fungal enzymes, which perform the same functions as those of the pancreatic enzymes, not only improve digestion and food assimilation, but by relieving the pancreas from overwork, allow it to restore its systemic and immune activities. Furthermore, taken on an empty stomach, such fungal enzymes can neutralise toxic molecules, which wrongly circulate throughout the organism, modulating the CIC (circulating immune complexes) aforementioned.
Unlike plant-based enzymes (bromelain, papain) or animal enzymes (trypsin, pancreatin, etc.), which have only proteolytic activity (i.e. protein-digesting enzymes), the enzymes derived from fungal fermentation are wide spectrum;
they contain protease, lipase, amylase, lactase (to digest dairy products), glycoamylase (simple sugars) and, also, endo-phytase which, resolving the phytic acid binding the minerals of cereals and vegetables, allows to assimilate minerals from plant-based sources. Moreover, only fungal enzymes reach the highest activity at human body temperature;
and only fungal enzymes remain active throughout the GI tract, both in the pre-acid and basic phase of the duodenum.
