Digestion Formula with
Enzymes & Probiotics
with Flanagan Microclusters
When digestion is functioning
properly, food is broken down and nutrients are made
available for metabolism, and cell renewal without undue
stress on the body.
Unfortunately, due to soil
depletion, food processing, toxins in the environment and
a fast paced lifestyle that demands much physical and
mental energy, digestion can be an internal battleground.
Millions of Americans experience some type of regular
digestive problem in their lives. Many of these cause
discomforts such as gas, indigestion or constipation.
Many digestive problems are a
sign of enzyme depletion. Enzymes are not only crucial to
digestion; they are the catalysts that allow the body to
breathe, reproduce, and generate energy. Nothing in the
body works without enzymes.
However, many individuals are
deficient in these vital protein molecules. Stress,
caffeine, and alcohol can destroy enzymes. Cooked and
processed foods are among the most serious threats to our
enzyme supply. Raw foods contain enzymes that enhance
digestion. However, cooked foods, which make up the bulk
of the modern diet, are devoid of enzymes, so the body
must draw from its limited supply of digestive enzymes.
As this supply is depleted, in order
to accomplish digestion, the body must rely on metabolic
enzymes. When this occurs, other bodily processes are
compromised. Dr. Edward Howell, who spent over forty years
studying the effects of enzymes on health, said “Humans
eating an enzyme-less diet use up a tremendous amount of
their enzyme potential in lavish secretions of the
pancreas and other digestive organs”. This puts
excessive stress on other bodily functions.
Enzyme supplementation has been heralded as the way to
improve overall digestive function. However, many enzyme
supplements fail to address the full scope of the problem
and don’t supply what is needed to replenish the enzyme
Royal 1 Digestion Formula from Royal
BodyCare is a totally unique, health-promoting way to
achieve nutritional digestive support. First, Royal 1
contains the full complex of necessary enzymes. Enzymes
are substrate specific, meaning certain kinds of enzymes
work on different foods. For example, the enzyme protease
catalyzes the hydrolytic breakdown of proteins. Our
formula also includes the enzyme peptidase, to complete
the process, breaking down peptides into useable amino
Similarly, amylase breaks down
carbohydrates to disaccharides. Along with amylase, RBC
has included the needed lactase, invertase and malt
diastase to complete the process, digesting the
disaccharides into the simple sugars the body can use.
The enzyme cellulase has been added
to Royal 1 to assist the body in digesting fiber. The
enzyme lipase accomplishes the task of breaking down fat
to free fatty acids that the body needs.
Another Vital Enzyme
Another enzyme in Royal 1, alpha galactosidase, is an
innovative addition to our formulation. Until recently,
this enzyme was not available for general use. It has been
proven to successfully help the body deal with indigestion
and gas caused by foods such as beans, cabbage, and other
Ginger root is another important
ingredient. Ginger root has traditionally been used to
cleanse the colon, stimulate circulation and to calm and
soothe the gastrointestinal tract.
Exclusive Mineral Blend
An exclusive mineral blend – including iron from
blackstrap molasses and the amino acid chelate form of
zinc, copper and manganese – is included in Royal 1.
Research indicates these particular minerals may greatly
increase normal digestion of carbohydrates and protein.
With this full spectrum of enzymes and RBC’s unique
mineral blend, Royal 1 Digestion Formula is already the
most complete digestive aid on the market. However,
there’s more. We’ve included additional nutrients to
ensure complete support of the intestinal environment. A
healthy intestine contains helpful bacteria which assists
in the elimination of toxins, gives added protection
against harmful bacteria strains, and actually produces
enzymes that complete the digestive process.
Every individual’s intestinal
flora is vulnerable to poor eating habits, excess stress
and the all-too-prevalent antibiotics that are prescribed
and present in the foods we eat. For this reason, Royal
BodyCare has included the four bacterial strains
recommended by Dr. Khem Shahani, an expert in friendly
bacteria. Consumers who are lactose intolerant may
particularly benefit from the enzyme lactase, which is
produced by these bacteria and needed to digest dairy
No other digestive formulation is as
complete, providing the enzymes, minerals and friendly
bacteria that will support the body through all the stages
The nutrients in Royal 1 Digestion Formula are
biologically available because of Royal BodyCare’s
unique Flanagan Microcluster Technology ® delivery
system. Utilizing Flanagan
Microclusters ® and chelated amino acids, this
delivery system transports nutrients directly into the
cells. A full spectrum of digestive enzymes and a specific
combination of chelated minerals, patented by Albion,
promotes optimum digestion and absorption of vital
