EB-Digestives: All about enzymes and their deficiencies

EB-Digestive is a high-potency, plant-derived combination of enzymes which aids digestion, keeps down inflammation and relieves gas. Check out this video to see how enzymes work and why they’re important for you!

  • While EB-Digestive contains the same plant-derived digestive enzymes as Flora-Zymes, they also contain the digestive enzymes Bromelain and Papain which aid the digestion of proteins and have been shown to reduce inflammation and soothe the stomach.

  • Acidophilus and Bifidus (pro-biotic bacteria) are added to inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, boosting your immune system.

  • Tracite (a solution of 77 trace minerals and fulvic acid) is added to stimulate body enzyme systems.

What is Special About EB-Digestive? What’s in it?

Being “plant” sourced, containing stable enzymes, and having a broad spectrum of pH activity.  EB-Digestive is a multi-enzyme product that targets multiple areas of digestion which include:

  • Amylase: Important for the digestion of carbohydrates and dead white blood cells (pus).
    Deficiencies include skin problems such as psoriasis, eczema, hives, insect bites, allergic bee and bug stings. atopic dermatitis, and all types of herpes. Lung problems, including asthma and emphysema, require amylase plus other enzyme formulas depending on the particular condition.

  • Lipase-Aids the digestion of fats.
    Deficiency leads to hyphochlorhydria (low chlorides in our electrolyte balance): “Chronic Fatigue Syndrome”, muscle cramping and spasms, spastic colon, and vertigo.

  • Protease-Aids the digestion of protein.
    Deficiency leads to alkaline excess:   anxiety, metabolism problems, toxic colon, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, gouty arthritis, degenerative disc problems, bone spurs and related disorders such as sciatica and ligament problems.

  • Cellulase-Aids the digestion of fibers.
    Deficiency is a malabsorption syndrome (impaired absorption of nutrients, vitamins, or minerals from the diet by the lining of the small intestine) with its many symptoms of lower abdominal gas, pain, bloating and problems associated with the small intestine and pancreas.  Additionally, deficiency may cause nervous system conditions such as Bell’s Palsy, Tic and facial neuralgia.

Why would I need to take EB-Digestive? Or any supplement for that matter?

Be selfish this New Year

by Universal Formulas CEO, Andrew Bruex

I often hear people disclose their “New Years Resolutions” with a list of things/actions that they are going to give-up ….. often times followed by an uggh sound. May I suggest that you choose to “give yourself something” in return for allowing an undesirable thing or action to “move on” from your life.

Let me explain by example: If you choose to give up or reduce smoking AND replace it with 10 minutes of walking, you are enhancing your life versus damaging your body. When you drop an undesirable habit or attribute AND replace it with a positive habit, you double the healthful benefits.

Trade up: I don’t think it should be about giving something up. I think it should be about trading something up. That way you don’t create a vacuum. Creating a vacuum creates a void. Voids and/or vacuums want to be filled. So think about what you want to give to yourself and trade that for what you no longer want in your life.

Here’s a bonus thought: It is scientifically known that habits can be changed in just 21 days. So by the end of January, just focus on January, you will have created the change as an effortless on-going habit.

On a personal note: Last year at this time, I decided to reduce the amount of coffee I was drinking. Although I was a purest, meaning I drank only freshly ground organic fair-traded coffee, it was still too much acid and caffeine in my diet. I found a great product that totally satisfies my desire for coffee AND it offers herbal support for my liver and kidneys. So now I have lowered both my caffeine and acid intake AND I am enhancing my health with the benefits of the herbs in the coffee substitute (and it does not cost any more than the coffee beans).

I like the idea of resolutions; I think they are exciting. Keep them positive and remember to “Be Selfish”.

Staying Active in Winter + Vitamin D

An article by health journalist, Laura Bandoim reports on the link between exercising during winter and vitamin D levels.

Research presented at the American Society for Clinical Pathology revealed that women who have health problems ranging from arthritis to high blood pressure tend to have much lower than normal vitamin D levels. As expected, these levels decreased significantly in the winter because of lower exposure to the sun. The study showed that 28 percent of the 244 women in the sample had a serious vitamin D deficiency.

Although it may be tempting to stay indoors and turn to the treadmill during the winter, the limited amount of sun exposure can lead to vitamin D deficiency. Exercise outdoors has been found to significantly increase vitamin D levels even in the colder months. Vitamin D deficiency has also been linked to heart disease.

“The fact that vitamin D plays a role in the relationship between exercise and risk of heart disease is a new finding,” says the study’s lead author Andrea Chomistek, a researcher at the Harvard School of Public Health. “This likely comes from being outside more. People who exercise tend to be out in the sun, which raises their vitamin D level. I don’t think you’d get the same increase in vitamin D by staying inside and running on the treadmill.”

Maintain your overall health and well being with Universal Formulas Vitamin D3 and stay active outdoors.
