Smidge™ Digestive Enzymes
Eating healthy is not only important for your health, but also to make sure that your body can digest food properly, so that the nutrients are optimally absorbed from it. Your stomach produces stomach acid and various enzymes that contribute to proper digestion: the absorption of carbohydrates, proteins , fats and micronutrients. Smidge™ Digestive enzymes is a formulation containing 10 different enzymes but no flavorings, artificial colors or preservatives. The supplement does not contain betaine hydrochloride (HCL) and pepsin; it focuses more on a wide selection of digestive enzymes. The product can be used as a continuation of, or in combination with, Smidge™ HCl+ Enzymes.
The unique formula of Smidge™ Digestive Enzymes
Smidge™ Digestive Enzymes contain an extensive blend of special enzymes. The formula includes the special DPP-IV enzymes : these are proteolytic enzymes , the revolutionary discovery of which opened a new world for many nutrition experts. The formulation of Smidge™ Digestive Enzymes is particularly suitable for people transitioning to a GAPS or Paleo diet, both diets where the diet contains more healthy fats . People with stomach and reflux complaints also indicate that they would like to use this product . The formula consists of the enzymes amylase, glucoamylase (GA), invertase , lactase, maltase, alpha- galactosidase , beta- glucanase, phytase, lipase and protease peptidase complex. The supplement contains three different types of lipase. In addition, Smidge™ Digestive Enzymes is free from allergens and from artificial flavors, dyes and preservatives. The product is not suitable for children under the age of three. For toddlers and adults with sensitive intestines, the powder from the capsules can also be taken separately, so that a smaller dose can be mixed with food.
About the intestinal flora
The intestinal flora, also called microbiome, is an extremely important ecosystem in our body. Did you know that our intestinal system is very personal, just as unique as our fingerprint? Essential substances are produced here, including vitamins and neurotransmitters. The microbiome also plays a key role in the digestion of food and the subsequent absorption of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. For these processes the body works together with the intestinal bacteria present. The body acts as a host for these microbes. The intestinal flora can be divided into different bacteria and fungi, into desired and less desirable species, and into passing species or permanent residents. As with all life, it is all about balance here.
How do bacteria and enzymes function?
The body works together with the microorganisms present in the intestines for a proper course of all digestive processes. All these microorganisms in the intestinal system have their own function, but they also form an important system as a united whole. When these species are in balance, we speak of a healthy intestinal flora. This balance is different for everyone! Enzymes are the workhorses of our body. They are, as it were, chemical factories that are able to accelerate all kinds of processes in our body, so that these processes do not take years, but often only a few seconds. So digestive enzymes function as a kind of catalyst in our intestinal system. You are not what you eat, but what you absorb. So cherish these little helpers in your gut.

The unraveling of our intestinal flora
Knowledge about our intestinal flora is constantly developing. We actually know as yet very little about this complex system and our current knowledge is just the tip of the iceberg, but almost all experts agree that it is worthwhile to take a closer look at our gut flora. For example, did you know that bacteria communicate with each other in a special way? Throughout the body, including in the intestines, bacteria are constantly in conversation with each other via a mechanism that we call 'quorum sensing'. They attune their behavior to each other via substances that they secrete, namely signal molecules. Among other things, they can know whether there are many congeners in their area or not, and collaborate with them in ingenious ways. Thanks to their special communication system, bacteria know how to sense whether they are alone or with others and this enables them to work together in ways that we are only now slowly starting to understand.
Compiled with care
Smidge™ products are carefully composed in small batches and do not contain unnecessary additives, making them of optimal quality and versatile. Because the products are developed on the basis of the latest insights and because they contain specific neutral bacterial strains, they are well tolerated by almost everyone. The products are therefore also extremely suitable for people with sensitivities or allergies; likewise, they fit right in with diets including GAPS and Paleo diets.
The three founders of Smidge™ (formerly Organic3) create supplements with the main objective to provide essential nutrients to support a healthy digestive system and to help maximize the absorption of nutrient-rich food. The passion for their business stems from their own experiences of passing disease.
All three have personally found that good nutrition is the key to health and are eager to help guide others on the path to wellness through nutrition. Smidge™ supplements are natural, fresh and produced without additives, making the products suitable for the most sensitive of users.
The name 'Smidge' means 'a small quantity', underscoring the fact that products invariably get produced in small batches in order to guarantee extra quality. This not only prevents unpleasant side effects, but also provides the best possible results. Their vision, research and experience has led to unique products, with formulations inspired by the work of Dr. Weston A. Price and Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride.
