Digestive Support – Digestive System Vitamins and Minerals

Digestive Support helps maintain a healthy gastric lining, aids in proper digestion, and nutrient absorption. Many patients experience digestive problems after surgery from the effects of the surgery itself, the residual effects of anesthesia, as well as opioids administered for pain relief. While most surgical patients will deal with short term digestive health issues, there is a broad spectrum of potential causes for digestive issues which can include:

  • Stress
  • A health issue like celiac disease, food allergies, or pancreatic issues that may be limiting the production of digestive enzymes
  • A poor diet high in processed food and low in fruits and vegetables causing nutrient deficiencies
  • Age

When do I take digestive support, a digestive supplement?

We recommend taking one (1) tablet of our digestive aid supplement with each meal as a dietary supplement unless otherwise directed by a healthcare professional. These supplements should NOT be chewed.

FAQs about Digestive Supplements

A digestive aid is a supplement that helps aid digestion by helping food move faster through the digestive tract and boosting the body's own production of digestive enzymes.
Digestive Support is a combination of B6, betaine hydrochloride, glutamic acid, ammonium hydrochloride, pepsin and pancreatin it uses a vegetable tablet base to provide optimal digestive function.
Vital health depends upon adequate digestion of food, absorption and assimilation of proteins, vitamins and minerals from key nutrients in our food and supplements.

Additional signs of insufficient hydrochloric acid production may include food allergies, joint inflammation, anemia, acne, leaky gut, bad breath, a loss of taste for meat, and peeling and weak fingernails. Some other common digestive issues from poor gut health include:
  • Bloating
  • Gas
  • The feeling of a “heavy stomach”
  • Loose stool
Hydrochloric acid in the stomach is a strong mineral acid that functions to maintain adequate gastric pH levels. It also serves three key roles:
  1. Low pH kills microorganisms in food
  2. Activates pepsinogen
  3. Unfolds proteins making them more accessible to proteolytic degradation.
Vitamin B6 is used to assist in the absorption of pyridoxal phosphate which is positively influenced by gastric acid secretion. Betaine is trimethylglycine (a normal metabolite and methyl donor). In the protonated form, betaine HCI gives up a proton and chloride ion in aqueous solutions resulting in hydrochloric acid. Therefore, betaine hydrochloride represents a dietary source of hydrochloric acid. Like betaine HCL, glutamic acid HCI represents a supplemental form of gastric acid. Ammonium Chloride is a raw material for hydrochloric acid production needed for gastric cells. Chloride represents a major anion electrolyte required to maintain osmotic pH and to maintain osmotic balance in the body.
