I. Digestion/Assimilation
II. Healthy Gut: key to vibrant health





I. Digestion/Assimilation


Plant enzymes are important because they are capable of digesting food before the body’s own digestive process begins. In other words, plant enzymes can enhance the digestion of food and the delivery of nutrients to the blood even if you have a compromised digestive system.

Most Americans have an issue with proper digestion and elimination! Furthermore, as we age, the body loses approximately 10% of its enzymes reserve for every 10 years of age.

Three very broad classifications of enzymes are:

  1. Plant enzymes (Proactazyme) - occur in raw food and, when present in the diet, begin the process of digestion
  2. Digestive enzymes (Food Enzymes) - produced by the body to break food into particles small enough to be carried across the gut wall.
  3. Metabolic enzymes - produced by the body to perform various complex biochemical reactions



 
Start with Proactazyme
Plant Enzymes
 

  Benefits:
  • Assists with the body's natural digestion process (except dairy).
  • Powerful, yet gentle plant-based enzyme formula
  • May help with gas-related gastrointestinal discomfort

Recommended Use:
Take 1–3 capsules with or between meals daily. 

 

 
 
or Food Enzymes
For people over 30
 
 

People over 30 often have less digestive HCI and fewer pancreatic digestive enzymes.

Benefits:
  • Supplements the body’s production of important enzymes.
  • Provides a blend of enzymes to digest proteins, carbohydrates and fats.
  • Provides hydrochloric acid and bile salts to help digest (animal) proteins and fats.
  • Helps relieve occasional indigestion.
Recommended Use: Take 1–3 capsules with a meal three times daily.


Note from Four Winds Nutrition
If you eat a salad made of vegetables only... take 1 capsule
If you eat a heavy meal with meat/poultry/fish etc. take 3 or 4 capsules before your meal.

II. The Gut: starting place for building health

Points to remember

Your GI (gastrointestinal) tract is foundational to your health. It is the starting place for building health and no other organ or system can fully heal until the gastrointestinal tract is supported. If you want to regain your magnificent energy, feel good allover and achieve long term health then start by fully understand the "Gut Connections".

Your GI tract is responsible for 70% of your ability to resist disease (Immunity is responsible to prevent diseases!).

The "Gut" is also being considered as a key player in regulating inflammation (as we all know, inflammation is the common factor for virtually all diseases in the body)

Your intestines also serve as one of the major pathways of elimination. They quite literally help the body get rid of crap it does not need.

Your intestines produce numerous neurotransmitters that influence your mood, which is why some researchers have referred to them as the gut brain or second brain.


What To Do
Improving gut flora enhances immune resistance to infection, reduces allergic and autoimmune reactions, improves digestive function, and can even enhance mood.

How?

Simply by taking a probiotic formula morning and night. I prefer to recommend taking those first thing in the morning in a glass of room temperature water and at night just before retiring (1 capsule A.M. and 2 caps at night).
Product recommended: Eleven Elevated (for the first month then switch to Probiotic Eleven).


 
Start with Eleven Elevated
for the first month
Provides 30 billion CFU of 11 strains of beneficial bacteria per serving
 

 
Benefits:
  • Provides 30 billion CFU of 11 strains of beneficial bacteria per serving
  • Helps support repopulation and optimization of beneficial bacteria in the gut
  • More potent than Probiotic Eleven formula
  • Featuring delayed-release vegetarian capsules

    Recommended Use:

    Take two capsules daily with a meal.

 
 
Then switch to
Probiotic Eleven

Probiotic Eleven contains a total of 18 billion friendly bacteria
 
  Benefits:
  • Supports Repopulation of Beneficial Bacteria in the Gut
  • Provides 18 billion of 11 strains of beneficial bacteria
  • Supports digestive health

Recommended Use:

Take 3 capsules daily with a meal.
Keep refrigerated or frozen.


Note from Four Winds Nutrition

When beginning a probiotic regimen, start with Eleven Elevated for 30 days then transition to Probiotic Eleven as a daily use probiotic. You may also use Eleven Elevated periodically to boost or strengthen your daily regimen or under times of increased stress

The "3 Essentials"
(For most common health issues: visit this page)

1. Our very existence is dependent upon the body's ability to utilize minerals because minerals activate enzymes! More about minerals
2. Digestive Enzymes: If food is not digesting properly, it creates waste that builds up downstream in the colon... an open door to toxicity & diseases! More Info
3. Probiotics: "Friendly gut bacteria play a crucial role in preventing diseases, from cancer to obesity". Dr. Robynne Chutkan M.D. More info
