Digestive Health Kit
What Makes the Digestive Health Kit Unique?
The Digestive Health Kit contains two products specially formulated to work within your body to promote digestive wellness. The first, Ultimate Aloe Juice, is made with the patented, concentrated ActiveAloe™ that enhances the aloe vera’s biological activity. Ultimate Aloe boasts the coveted IASC (International Aloe Science Council) seal that certifies the aloe content and purity. Pasteurized to ensure a durable, high quality product, Ultimate Aloe contains fibre as well as nutrients, enzymes, vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Not only is Ultimate Aloe fortified with healthful nutrients, but also it is free from high fructose corn syrup and artificial sweeteners. Ultimate Aloe contains no thickeners or emulsifiers, and is virtually free of emodin or aloin, but rather contains natural aloe vera leaves, harvested and processed quickly and under the most sanitary conditions to ensure your body receives maximum results. Ultimate Aloe is also great tasting and refreshing, while many other aloe products are bitter or heavily laced with artificial sweeteners.
The second product in this kit, the Isotonix Digestive Enzyme Formula, is an isotonic-capable food supplement, blending amylase, protease, cellulase, lactase, maltase, sucrase and lipase enzymes. Enzymes are important for the body’s proper absorption and utilization of food. Over time, the body’s ability to make certain enzymes decreases as part of the natural aging process. Many scientists now believe that maintaining normal levels of key enzymes is important to maintaining overall health. Enzymes are responsible for every activity of life including proteases (aid in digesting protein), amylases (aid in digesting carbohydrates), and lipases (aid in digesting fats) which are digestive enzymes, which function as the biological catalyst to breaking down food.
Isotonic, which means “same pressure,” bears the same chemical resemblance of the body’s blood, plasma and tears. All fluids in the body have a certain concentration, referred to as osmotic pressure. The body’s common osmotic pressure, which is isotonic, allows a consistent maintenance of body tissues. In order for a substance to be absorbed and used in the body’s metabolism, it must be transported in an isotonic state.
Isotonix dietary supplements are delivered in an isotonic solution. This means that the body has less work to do to in obtaining maximum absorption. The isotonic state of the suspension allows nutrients to pass directly into the small intestine and be rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream. With Isotonix products, little nutritive value is lost, making the absorption of nutrients highly efficient while delivering maximum results.

Frequently Asked Questions About the Digestive Health Kit:
What are digestive enzymes?
Digestive enzymes are special catalytic proteins that help our bodies break down food to utilize the complete spectrum of nutrients in the food we eat. Isotonix Digestive Enzyme Formula acts to supplement and maximize the activity of the body’s own enzymes in an easy-to-take, pleasant-tasting drink.
Isotonix Digestive Enzyme Formula provides additional digestive enzymes for the body in order to maximize the absorption of nutrients from the food we eat.http://ca.shop.com/alikoshoppingmall/927290379-p+898.xhtml?vid=243360
How do enzymes function in the body?
Enzymes are the workhorses of our cells. They are proteins that catalyze many thousands of biochemical reactions in the body. While most enzymes work inside our cells, digestive enzymes operate outside the cells in the gastrointestinal tract.
The start of digestion begins with digestive enzymes secreted by salivary gland cells into our mouths. Cells lining the gastrointestinal tract also contribute enzymes such as pepsin in the stomach. In addition, digestive enzymes are produced in the pancreas and are emptied into the upper part of the small intestine.
These enzymes help to break apart proteins, allowing the body to optimize its effort to digest proteins from plant and animal sources, as well as break down starch, lactose, fats, and nucleic acids (DNA and RNA). The result is a more complete digestive process, resulting in better nutritional absorption.
Isotonix Digestive Enzyme Formula supplies enzymes that are not inactivated by stomach acid. What this means is that the supplemental enzymes mix with and work in concert with the ingested food and begin to work with the body’s own digestive enzymes to release as many of the nutrients as possible.http://ca.shop.com/alikoshoppingmall/927290379-p+898.xhtml?vid=243360
What are the three basic enzymes and the four specialty food enzymes?
There are three basic food enzymes that help us digest our food. Each has a specific function and purpose, and each is necessary for the releasing of nutrients into our bodies. They are: protease (which digests proteins), amylase (which digests starch) and lipase (which digests fats). In addition to these basic enzymes, there are also some specialty enzymes including: lactase (for the sugar lactose in dairy products), maltase (for the sugar maltose in foods), sucrase (for table sugar and fruit), and cellulase (which helps us digest cellulose fibres). Each of these enzymes play a significant part in the body’s overall health by promoting better digestion of food and absorption of nutrients.
What is ActiveAloe™?
Ultimate Aloe Juice contains the ingredient ActiveAloe™, which is protected by a patented process that actually enhances aloe vera’s biological activity by isolating the polysaccharide fraction from the plant. This is important because the healthful benefits of aloe come from polysaccharides of a certain size. ActiveAloe™ is produced under ultra-sanitary conditions; employees go through sanitation every time the work area is entered, and the entire area undergoes wash down each night. It contains a novel proprietary method enabling the dehydration of aloe while maintaining flavour, colour and nutrients.http://ca.shop.com/alikoshoppingmall/927290379-p+898.xhtml?vid=243360
I noticed the IASC Seal on the Ultimate Aloe Juice bottles. What is it, and what does it mean for me?
The seal is a certificate from the International Aloe Science Council (IASC). It demonstrates that the quality of aloe in Ultimate Aloe Juice has been validated and certified by an independent group of professionals. Market America has made a strong commitment to sell a standardized, well-defined, thoroughly tested product that meets the rigid standards of the Council.http://ca.shop.com/alikoshoppingmall/927290379-p+898.xhtml?vid=243360
What is the shelf life of Ultimate Aloe Juice?http://ca.shop.com/alikoshoppingmall/927290379-p+898.xhtml?vid=243360
If unrefrigerated and unopened, Ultimate Aloe Juice will last approximately one year.
How long will this kit last me?
The Isotonix Digestive Enzymes contains a 90 day supply. If you drink Ultimate Aloe by the suggested serving size, you will have a 96 day supply of assorted Ultimate Aloe juices.
