Acid Reflux Symptoms and Complications
The most common acid reflux and GERD symptoms include:
- Bitter taste in your mouth, periodically or (for some people) throughout the day (some people taste regurgitated food or sour liquid at the back of their mouths/throats)
- Waking up in the middle of the night feeling like you’re choking or coughing
- Dry mouth
- Gum irritation, including tenderness and bleeding
- Bad breath
- Regurgitation of acidic foods
- Bloating after meals and during bouts of symptoms
- Bloody vomiting (possible sign of damage in the lining of the esophagus)
- Black stools
- Belching, gassiness, burping and flatulence after meals
- Hiccups that are difficult to stop
- Difficulty swallowing (a possible sign of narrowing esophagus)
- Unexpected weight loss
- Increased discomfort when bending over or lying down
- Hoarseness upon waking or throughout the day
- Chronic throat irritation, soreness and dryness
Supplements for Acid Reflux Treatment
Probiotics — Take 25–50 billion units of high-quality probiotics daily. Adding healthy bacteria helps balance the digestive tract and crowd out bad bacteria that can lead to indigestion, leaky gut and poor absorption of nutrients. It also help if you have h.pylori.
The Problem – Vital digestive enzymes, in our body & in plants, aid in digestion yet:
We lose digestive ezymes as we age and when we cook foodsEnzymes can be destroyed by temperatures exceeding 118 degreesEnzymes can be destroyed by commercial farming & processingEnzymes can be destroyed by strenuous exercise & inherited conditionsPoor digestion & low immunity can result if our enzyme count is lowDifficultly digesting dairy &/or gluten can result if our enzyme count is lowAbsorbing & assimilating nutrients is hindered if our enzyme count is low

Is DAILY DIGEST a certified organic product?
All ingredients in DAILY DIGEST are 100% plant and mineral derived. All plant enzymes (listed above) are sourced and extracted from USDA NOP certified organic hydroponic plants raised in elevated, outdoor glass bio-domes, yet the enzymes (which are extracted from these plants) cannot be classified as organic. As of 2017 there are less than two dozen certified hydroponic operations and Essanté Organics is proud to be partnered with one of these special systems. Additionally, like enzymes, minerals cannot be classified as organic either, yet the minerals in Essanté Organics DAILY DIGEST are eco-friendly sourced in a remote region of Turkey, from pristine, mineral-rich, 100% toxic free earth discovered by a geologist and pastor who was featured on the Discovery Channel twice. His name is kept confidential for propriety reasons.
Are enzymes necessary or are there enough of them in my digestive tract?
Enzyme production in the body decreases with age. As we age, our bodies produce less amylase, lipase and protease, making it harder for us to digest proteins, fats and carbohydrates compared to when we were younger. Doctors agree, digestive enzymes are often depleted in many of their adult patients. Per Dr. Axe, “It is a lesser known fact that a growing number of health problems can be linked to nutrient malabsorption due to a lack of digestive enzymes”.
Enzymes are necessary and vital to digestion and overall human health, yet enzymes are not activated, and cannot support the body, unless minerals are present. Due to our earth’s depleted and pesticide laden soils mineral deficiency is at an all time high in humans. Thus humans often have depleted minerals and in turn depleted digestive enzymes. Additionally, most humans drink water or other beverages while eating a meal, which is not recommended, because fluids are proven to interfere with and even deplete your digestive enzymes, which are necessary to digest your food.
Per Dr. Axe, “Without proper levels of amylase and other digestive enzymes, it really is impossible to have your health be at its best.”
Are there enough enzymes in the food I eat?
It depends on the quantity and spectrum of fruits and vegetables you eat and if you cook them or not. Many enzymes contained naturally in raw uncooked food, which are vital to digestion and nutrient absorption, can be destroyed by temperatures exceeding 118 degrees. Commercial farming, processing, cooking and even strenuous exercise can destroy the vital enzymes which are essential to digestion, nutrient absorption and overall healthy immunity.
Why does the USA have a cold and flu season?
Our nutrition team shares the cold and flu season exists 3 months out of every year (November, December and January) primarily because Americans consume their highest calorie meals (holiday meals) during these 3 months. High calorie holiday meal consumption, coupled with digestive enzyme deficiency, can cause immune deficiency. Most other countries do not have a cold and flu season because they do not celebrate with heavy, calorie-filled meals during November, December and January. During these 3 months reported incidences of colds and flus in the USA increase 9 times compared to other months. DAILY DIGEST was launched by Essanté Organics October 2017, just in time to help customers digest those rich, holiday meals.
Should you be taking digestive enzymes?
It depends on your diet and what you are absorbing from the food you eat. Have you noticed an increase in gut issues among the population? Have you heard people discussing how their bowels are irritated, gassy or bloated? Have you heard parents discussing how adults and even children cannot assimilate nutrients properly? Are you or others you know of suffering with fatigue or low energy? Have you heard the terms reflux, leaky gut, and swollen, upset bowels more than ever before? Do you know people suffering with stools that are too soft or too hard? Do you or others you know eat meat and/or dairy products? Do you or others you know eat processed or cooked foods? If you, or anyone you know, answered “yes” to any of these questions, digestive enzymes can be a highly supportive dietary supplement. We’ve all heard the phrase, “You are what you eat”, yet it may be more accurate to say, “You are what you absorb”. Your body and diet, when filled with ample, healthy digestive enzymes, can support digestion, assimilation, absorption and overall health. Conversely, a body and/or diet with too few digestive enzymes, can result in a cascade of health concerns.
What are digestive enzymes?
Digestive enzymes are tiny proteins required to break down the food you eat into micro and macro nutrients so your body can absorb the nutrition within the food. Digestive enzymes support gut health too. You are not only what you eat, you are what you absorb. If your food is not properly dissolved, digested and absorbed, by they digestive enzymes in your body and food, it can lead to undigested food traveling down into your digestive tract and providing a feast for the “bad” bacteria in your gut. This can cause gas, bloating and swelling. If your undigested food reaches your large intestine it can also negatively impact the balance of good and bad bacteria in your colon.
We need digestive enzymes to support complete digestion and in-turn healthy immunity.
Optimal digestive enzyme levels are needed to support an overall healthy body. Many people support their health by improving their digestive enzyme levels and this can be done easily with Essanté Organics DAILY DIGEST. A recent study showed digestive enzymes may be more far-reaching than scientists originally thought: one study showed digestive enzyme therapy in children not only supported their gastrointestinal health but also supported healthy mental behaviors.
What causes digestive enzyme deficiency?
- As we age our bodies produce less amylase, lipase and protease, 3 of the key digestive enzymes our body needs to digest carbohydrates, fats and proteins.
- Drinking water or other fluids while eating a meal dramatically dilutes the digestive enzymes. In-turn this can lead to low and slow digestive enzyme activity, hindering the body’s ability to digest and eliminate food properly.
- If our pancreas, gallbladder, or the brush border of our small intestine are not functioning properly it can lead to our body producing fewer digestive enzymes.
- If our stomach is not producing enough acid it can lead to digestive enzyme deficiency, because stomach acid is needed to activate digestive enzymes needed to digest the protein we consume.
- If we are under excessive stress or have poor genetics these factors can lead to digestive enzyme deficiency.
- Eating meat (animal flesh), dairy products and processed carbohydrate foods can require additional digestive enzyme support, by way of a dietary supplement like Essanté Organics DAILY DIGEST, because humans are not designed to eat meat and dairy products nor processed foods. Humans are the only species that continue to consume milk, after being weened, and from other species. Watch the mind-blowing movie documentary titled, What The Health, to see the validation and benefits of an alkaline diet vs. a meat and/or dairy based diet. In particular, we found the direct links to cancer and heart disease particularly disturbing.
What are minerals and are they necessary to activate digestive enzymes?
Minerals are the circuit breaker switches of the body. Think about the light bulbs in your house – they cannot be activated without the house’s circuit breaker switches being activated first. Like breaker switches are to the many light bulbs in your house, minerals are to thousands of enzymes in your body. Minerals are the body’s electrical transmitters. Minerals, more so than vitamins, are necessary to activate and catalyze enzymatic reactions because most plants manufacture their own vitamins yet they must obtain minerals from the soil (and today many soils are mineral deficient).
Here are a few examples of minerals and their role in activating digestive enzymes:
- The mineral nickel is required to activate your body’s liver enzymes.
- The mineral Molybdenum is required to activate your body’s oxidative enzymes.
- The mineral copper is required to activate the oxidase enzyme.
- The mineral tin is required to activate protein synthesizing enzymes.
- The mineral iron is required to activate multiple enzymes throughout your body.
Essanté Organics DAILY DIGEST contains a proprietary cofactor blend of 77 raw ionic minerals by design. For this reason, DAILY DIGEST works superiorly when compared to most other digestive enzyme supplements on the market. A digestive enzyme formula without cofactor ionic minerals cannot and will not work, because digestive enzymes cannot be activated if their specific, respective minerals are missing.
Essanté Organics understands the vital role of minerals in the body and how they are required to activate digestive enzymes. DAILY DIGEST is a complete dietary supplement that contains both digestive plant enzymes and cofactor ionic minerals that work together to offer complete digestive support. Unlike DAILY DIGEST, inferior digestive enzyme supplements, those that do not contain all the necessary associated cofactor ionic minerals, are not able to clinically deliver activate digestive enzymes into the body.
About USDA NOP certified hydroponic systems, operations and plants:
Was DAILY DIGEST developed and formulated by a Nobel Prize Finalist?
Yes. DAILY DIGEST was developed and formulated by Essanté Organics formulation team, which includes Nobel Prize Finalist and renowned immunoenzymologist, Ron, as with all Essanté Organics formulators, his last name is kept private for proprietary and privacy purposes.
Ron was hosted by Nelson Mandella in South Africa, where he spoke along side a panel of presidential leaders at a 1999 HIV-AIDS summit to introduce his breakthrough enzymatic and ionic mineral findings and their key role in supporting immunity. In 2001, these achievements gained Ron the title of Nobel Prize Finalist.
Following his Nobel Prize nomination, Ron began sharing his enzyme knowledge through numerous international television appearances, including Oprah Winfrey, Good Morning Canada, and Street Talk of Chicago, as well as guest speaking appearances on hundreds of radio shows. Ron has been awarded both domestically and abroad as a leading expert in enzymes and nutrition. In July of 2017 Ron met with one of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center’s leading oncologists.
To date, Ron continues to meet with global political figureheads, country health ministries, hospitals, and medical universities to provide live nutritional blood profile analyses for and educate both medical professionals and laypersons on his scientifically proven achievements in enzyme therapy and how it supports the digestive system, the immune system, the blood and overall health.
In 2017 Essanté Organics invited Ron to their corporate headquarters where in depth discussions began on how to best serve Essanté Organics’ customers with a proprietary dietary supplement of the finest digestive plant enzymes and ionic cofactor minerals on earth. With Ron’s world-renowned enzymatic expertise and with the addition of Ron into Essanté Organics formulation team, DAILY DIGEST was launched in the fall of 2017, just in time for all those oversized, protein and fat filled Thanksgiving and holiday meals.
