Our bodies are not maintained by what we eat but rather by what is digested, absorbed and assimilated.
Every food must be broken down by enzymes for access by the villi in the intestines, transported by the blood to interstitial fluid and finally assimilated by individual cells. This biochemical process is managed by specific digestive enzymes, microbes and minerals which are just part of the amazing and unique AZ 2-12 formula.
As we age, and continue to eat cooked and processed food, we put more demand on the pancreas to keep manufacturing digestive enzymes. This ultimately puts stress on the pancreas, since it is only able to build these enzymes, from those raw food enzymes we ingest. Another important body system that becomes stressed in the absence of digestive enzymes, is that of our already burdened immune system. Immune function relies on proper and complete digestion of food, but in the absence of abundant digestive enzymes, immune enzymes are drawn from their normal posts, and transported to the digestive tract by white blood cells, to insure adequate digestion. This pattern leaves our immune systems unguarded because it is attempting to first take care of digestion!
AZ 2-12 not only maintains a healthy balance of beneficial microbes (the heart of our body's recycling machine), but also replenishes our digestive enzymes, mineral and electrolyte reserves, amino acids, vitamins and chlorophyll.
ENZYME COMPLEX IN AZ 2-12
Scientific Studies suggest that probiotics may help to reduce toxic causing compounds produced in the intestinal tract
|ENZYME TYPE||DIGESTIVE FUNCTION|
|Protease I||meat protein|
|Protease II ||soy protein|
|Protease III ||milk protein|
|Peptizyme SP ||liquefies mucous|
|Lactase||milk - gas - bloating|
|Alpha Galactosidase||Gas - bloating|
AZ 2-12 is able to help the body cope by supplying a balance of beneficial microbes that produce vitamin K2 which specifically keeps calcium out of the walls of blood vessels and in the bones. Because so many of us have been exposed to antibiotics, we lack an adequate supply of probiotics (essential microbes). Hardening of blood vessels coincides with softening of bones. Vitamin K influences metabolism of calcium into bone. Vitamin K regulates calcium. Bones must have it, arteries can't stand it. Vitamin K addresses both.
Chlorella, the master cell regenerator has many systemic benefits that include immune enhancement, healing of gastrointestinal ulcers, protection of the liver from environmental pollutants, digestive regulation, stimulation of healing damaged tissues, protection against radiation, cleansing and building blood cells and elimination of body odors.
Researchers at Kanazawa Medical University in Japan and Taipei University in China performed experiments showing increased macrophage activity. Macrophages are immune cells that consume or digest tumor cells, pathogenic bacteria and other substances that should not be in the body. Chlorella is also effective in breaking down cholesterol deposits, improving brain function and memory due to chlorella's capacity to carry more oxygen to brain cells.
Sea Kelp contains a wide range of organic nutrients but its predominant content of iodine, is a mineral essential for normal thyroid function and balanced blood sugar levels. Low thyroid can lead to a feeling of sluggishness and to a craving for sugars. Kelp is often used as part of a weight management program.
Potassium Glycerophosphate is a highly absorbable, energizing form of potassium, naturally occurring in all body cells. Potassium is of crucial importance in maintenance of the cell's electric potential and production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate). ATP is constantly being broken down and regenerated again to keep pace with the body's energy requirements. Potassium functions in the maintenance of water balance, acid - alkaline balance, muscle, nerve, heart, kidney, adrenal function and stress management.
Fulvic Base is a complex of 73 super bioavailable plant minerals, the primary food for the probiotics in AZ 2-12 as well as the body's nervous system. Fulvic Base minerals are easily absorbed by all body cells and contribute to our electric potential and acid-alkaline balance. Minerals are responsible for every cellular and enzymatic function throughout the body, and brain including activation of vitamins.
Inulin is a functional
naturally in vegetables
such as onion, garlic and asparagus. Inulin
contains FOS (fructo-oligosaccharides) the energy reserve in these plants.
Inulin's unique health
benefits include promotion of intestinal flora,
acceleration of stool
transit time and assisting in normalizing blood glucose
Yucca in AZ 2-12 serves to increase the surface area of nutrients for the enzymes to
act upon, accelerating their multitude of biological
actions and reactions.
Saponins in Yucca contain
plant steroids similar to
cortisone, the stress and
Yucca benefits intestinal
flora populations and aids
in the management of
gas and constipation.
Silica is one of the most
important tissue salts within
our body. Stress
management, skin health,
elasticity of blood vessels,
healthy bones, cartilage,
joints, nails, teeth, gums,
and digestion of food are
some of the benefits
provided by silica.
