Body Ecology ASSIST Dairy and Protein, 90 veg caps
Body Ecology Assist Dairy and Protein maximizes your absorption of the protein you eat, minimizing waste or toxicity.
Now you can enjoy dairy foods again! You can enjoy the benefits of milk kefir without the side effects of the casein. Get the most from what you eat!
Strong digestive fire is key to optimal wellness. Yet certain proteins are often difficult to digest. Assist Dairy and Protein was designed to aid in the digestion of proteins from:
- • Animal Foods: This proprietary blend of Protease Enzymes plus significant amounts of HCl and Pepsin enhance digestion of meats, fish, poultry and eggs.
- • Dairy Foods: Fermenting milk into kefir and yogurt enhances digestion since the milk sugar, lactase, is broken down and consumed by the beneficial micro flora. Dairy proteins and fats are also pre-digested, yet many people still need additional support. High amounts of the protease enzyme DPP-IV supports the optimal cleaving of casein and its exorphin peptide, casomorphin.
- • Nuts, Seeds and Legumes: These ideally should be soaked before eating to release their enzyme inhibitors.
Body Ecology Assist Dairy and Protein supports the digestion and absorption of the proteins contained in these nutritious foods and for all other source protein containing foods with its blend of HCI, Pepsin, Protease, and DPP-IV enzymes.
Hydrochloric acid (HCI) is naturally found in stomach acid and assists in the process of breaking down food. It plays a principal role in the breakdown of protein by unraveling the long chains of amino acids. While the potassium and sodium chloride also present in stomach acid rarely are limiting factors in its production, it is the HCI that people tend to have problems producing. Absorption of calcium, vitamins B9 and 12, magnesium, zinc, iron, vitamin C and beta carotene are all dependent on adequate stomach acid; therefor HCI supplementation can aid in the absorption of these vital nutrients.
Pepsin is a powerful enzyme that digests proteins like those found in meat, eggs, seeds, and dairy products. Pepsin degrades these proteins into smaller units (peptides), which are then either absorbed from the intestine into the bloodstream or are broken down further by pancreatic enzymes.
Protease enzymes function is to further breakdown the peptide bond of proteins, liberating the amino acids needed by the body. When not used for digestion in the small intestines, these protease enzymes are free to roam through the blood stream seeking to break down hard protein and scar tissue. Doctors in Europe and Japan often use proteolytic enzymes to speed up healing from bodily injuries or surgery.
In addition to these powerful and naturally occurring protein digestive enzymes; Body Ecology Assist Dairy & Protein brings in DPP-IV to support those who suffer from gluten or casein intolerance. **
** DPP-IV will help to normalize the inflammatory response to the gluten peptide, however it will not prevent celiac symptoms. Gluten is not a recommended part of the Body Ecology Diet.

About Body Ecology, the company
After years of extensive study, Body Ecology founder Donna Gates created a back-to-basics approach to restoring health and vitality by understanding the invaluable balance of the human body's "inner ecology".
Donna Gates is a respected authority in the field of digestive health, diet, and nutrition. Donna coined the phrase “inner ecosystem” to describe the network of microbes that maintain our basic physiological processes from digestion to immunity.
In her 30s, Donna began searching for answers to lifetime of health issues. Several years of research and examination of her own diet led her to slowly heal from years of sensitivity and infection. She replaced her standard American diet with one rich in probiotics and fermented foods and beverages. Donna decided to put together everything she had learned into a book that would be easy for others to follow, and the Body Ecology Diet was born. Through Body Ecology, Donna is able to bring the best of medical science, naturopathy, and ancient Chinese medicine together so that everyone can access her system of health and healing.
Body Ecology offers products geared to one fundamental law of nature: the fact that our digestive systems are intimately linked to our immune, endocrine, circulatory and central nervous systems. Profoundly affecting all these interlocking systems is an amazing world of benevolent bacteria: the microscopic “good guys” that must be present in your intestines for you to be healthy.
Often forgotten or unconsidered, probiotics and enzymes are crucial to a healthy and efficient internal system. When this system is out of balance, a host of medical issues and conditions can arise.
Body Ecology's products are all designed to help cultivate, nourish, cleanse and repair the body's abundant inner ecosystem.
The Body Ecology system of health and healing is comprised of three simple dietary principals that can have a profound impact on how you feel:
• The addition of cultured foods to your diet
• Changing the quality of fats and oils you consume
• Drastically reducing your intake of carbohydrates and sugars
Body Ecology products are designed to restore your system’s harmony through effective nutritional therapy.
More about Donna’s contributions: Donna’s groundbreaking work has been instrumental in transforming the natural foods industry. Donna first introduced the natural sweetener stevia to the US in 1994. Her dedication to educating society on the value of coconut oil has turned the once-demonized ingredient into one promoted by holistic doctors and medical doctors alike.
Donna is also a key figure in the autism movement, working with doctors in the field who view her diet as instrumental in the treatment of the disorder.
Donna has certified hundreds of “Body Ecologists”, who passionately spread her teachings throughout the US, Canada, England, Australia and New Zealand.
