DETOXIFICATION, ELIMINATION AND LIVER SUPPORT

A strong digestive system critical to staying healthy, maintaining a high energy level and controlling the urge to overeat.
Modern food preparation methods such as cooking and heating, poor soil quality, chronic and acute illness, stress, digestive disorders, insufficient consumption of live and raw food, and just the normal aging process result in decreased enzyme reserve necessary to properly digest and absorb vitamins and minerals from food and for the detoxification process.
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 microflora. 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.

SAFE for Diabetics!
While the liquid Stevia is perfect for drinks and some recipes like to sweeten coffee, tea or yogurt, stevia is not ideal for traditional baked goods. Now with Lakanto, you can sprinkle a calorie-free, sugar-free, all-natural, sugar-like substance onto food and item like you would with regular sugar but without the guilt!
Lakanto IS safe for anyone … kids, diabetics, people watching their weight, hypoglycemics, and, of course, anyone with a sweet tooth. And yes, Lakanto gives you the flavor of sugar, without the many downsides…that’s why we love it.
Body Ecology’s Lakanto Ingredients
The two natural ingredients in Lakanto are Non-GMO *erythritol and the supersweet extract of the luo han guo fruit.that’s it!
*Erythritol is a sugar alcohol naturally found in grapes, pears, mushrooms, soy sauce, cheese, wine and beer, so it and has been part of the human diet for thousands of years.
You may be familiar with other sugar alcohols like xylitol, sorbitol, and malitol used in sugar-free candies and chewing gum. But erythritol is different and much better than these other sugar alcohols because it is FERMENTED. Yes, it is made by fermenting the sugar in corn.
Many people have trouble with foods sweetened with sugar alcohols. Diarrhea and gas and bloating are frequent complaints. But Lakanto does not cause diarrhea, gas and bloating. We believe it may be because Lakanto is made by fermentation while the other sugar alcohols are made from hydrogenation.
