Digesten-K, Is this New Supplement Essential For Your Good Health?

Digesten-K Registration Details

Digesten-K as a product name was registered with the New Zealand Office of Intellectual Property on 20th August 2010 according to their published report of September 2010 see report here.  It was released to the general public on the 29th June 2011.

What is Digesten-K good for?

That to me makes it a brand new product so why am I so excited by it’s release?  This looks like the absolutely best thing since Pro-Biotics for almost all digestive ailments.  Just take a look at all the symptoms Digesten-K is claimed to help with.

  • Back pain
  • Acne
  • Lack of energy
  • Skin breakouts (blackheads, whiteheads, blemishes)
  • Bloated feeling
  • General uncomfortable feeling around midsection
  • Smelly gas
  • Constipation and/or diarrhea
  • Unpredictable bowels
  • Bad breath
  • Body odor
  • General sluggish feeling
  • Abdominal cramping
  • Heartburn
  • Indigestion
  • Allergies
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Colon pain
  • Straining when “going”
  • Unexplained weight gain
  • Frequently catching colds or other bugs
  • Precancerous polyps

Apparently these are all typical symptoms of an imbalanced digestive tract.  I am excited by this new product because I have had many of these symptoms for many years.  I have always put these down to either ‘something I ate/drank’ or just the fact that I am male and therefore I have more gas which naturally means a greater chance of ‘smelly gas’.  I claim some world records for this but you don’t want to know which ones.

I had been told that Pro-biotics + fibre supplements + psyllium husks would sort all that out for me.  Frankly I’m not good at fixing things I don’t think are a problem and I really don’t like taking a fist-full of pills and washing them down with a fairly yucky drink.

Digesten-K comes in capsule form and you only need to swallow 1 capsule per day to gain the benefits.  Now that’s something I can deal with easily particularly if I can get rid of the heartburn, indigestion and the bloated feeling.  I’m sure my wife would be delighted if it also stopped the gas.

What is in Digesten-K that makes it so good?

Digesten-K according to the manufacturers, Xtend-Life, is made from whole kiwifruit.  Apparently the importance of using whole fruit is that you actually get the enzymes in and just under the skin which make the whole thing work.  I don’t know if you have ever tasted the skin of a kiwi fruit but it’s really hairy and horrible which means that even if you could eat enough fresh kiwi fruit every day to get the health benefits of this amazing fruit you will not get the enzymes for the maximum benefit.

“I started taking Digesten-K a couple of months back and have found some good results with it. The first is that I am digesting dietary fats much better. I used to get a slight gall bladder/liver pain if I consumed foods cooked in oil, or if I ate red meat. Since taking Digesten-K I have had no issues at all.

The second pleasing change is that my blood sugar levels have been more stable as in times past I had wild fluctuations in my levels. This has not happened since taking Digesten-K. In addition, I no longer have acid reflux (even after drinking the odd coffee) and I am generally a lot less bloated.”

Paul – Christchurch, New Zealand

Paul was one of the people who got the chance to trial this supplement before the public release.  I doubt you could stop him taking Digesten-K now regardless of what you offered him.

Yes you can buy other powdered kiwifruit supplements at similar pricing but they are all made from freeze dried pulp and they do not include the skin or seeds and this is where the active components, health-wise, are to be found.  Freeze drying kills off the pre-biotic or enzymatic activity which massively reduces the benefit and there is significant amounts of those compounds your body must have for optimal digestive conditions.

As with all processed foods and health supplements the quality varies quite a lot and it is important to know how good the product is that you are planning to use.  Without the quality there is really no value in taking them.

Recently there has been some discussion about the value of any natural health products which was initiated by an organisation called “ConsumerLab” who claim to be an independent testing laboratory.  Unfortunately they are misleading the consumers because they are a marketing company, not an independent laboratory.  Read their report on multi-vitamins and then a response to their claims.

Having established that quality is important and that it is really difficult to maintain quality or test for it what can you or I as consumers do to make sure we are getting the the quality we deserve and need?  Since we are unable to test these things in a laboratory and generally there will be, at least initially, some placebo effect whenever we take a new supplement or other pill we cannot be reliably accurate in our own assessment.

About all we can do is try to only deal with reliable and ethical companies.  Look for a company which has been around for a reasonable length of time, search their website for information about them, do a web search for any negative comments, there should be some because not everyone will get benefits.  Some will have allergic reactions etc.  To put this in perspective, aspirin doesn’t always work, some people are allergic to it and there are significant side effects if it is mis-used but you wouldn’t take it off the market.  If you feel that you can trust the company there is a very good chance that you can trust their products.

What are the benefits of taking Digesten-K?

Our modern lifestyle and the highly processed foods we eat mean that we rarely get the nutrition we really need.  I know that the medical profession claim that we will get all we need from the food we eat but that’s just a load of B.S.  So much of the food in our supermarkets has travelled for hundreds of miles and been stored for so long that, while it may look appetising, there is little or no nutrition left by the time we get it home.  In addition most people are not expert chefs and fail to prepare or cook the food in a manner to retain the maximum nutrition and flavour.

Is it any wonder then that almost every person in the world (yes, world) has a digestive tract which is out of balance?  Now you know that adding high fibre foods/drinks and taking digestive aids will help but they don’t solve the problem.

If you don’t have a balanced and fully-functional digestive tract you cannot get proper nutrition from the food you eat.

The good news is that Digesten-K can and does solve your digestive tract imbalance with 1 to 2 capsules a day.  Now that has to be easier than Yogurt.  It does this by supporting the good bacteria in the gut and suppressing the bad bacteria.  It maintains the balance in your digestive system and is a much better and safer option than any other dietary supplements or digestive supplement you could buy.
