Poor dietary choices contribute to a growing number of chronic and deadly diseases. A key factor in the development of disease is lack of nutrients, vitamins and minerals along with an overpopulation of undesirable gut bacteria. Over time, poor diet can cause lasting damage that can’t fully be reversed through improved diet alone. When the ability to properly digest and breakdown food is affected, it leads to a variety of issues: gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, decreased immune system function, autoimmune disease and more.
The key to improved digestion is being able to breakdown the foods you eat into absorbable nutrients. Elimination of bad bacteria allows for repopulation with beneficial organisms and creates the environment needed to absorb and assimilate nutrients. By improving the nature of the gastrointestinal tract, you can restore balance and lay the foundation for overall health and wellness.
This powerful probiotic supplement contains essential oils, digestive enzymes, and minerals to help balance microbial levels and promote good gut health.† This formula may boost your immune system and improves your body’s digestive ability to help relieve symptoms of gastrointestinal distress, prevent microbial imbalances, and improve retention of healthy gut flora.†
This nutraceutical supports the nutritional focus of the 5 Essentials®.

A healthy digestive tract is contingent upon several factors: good nutrition, removal of dietary allergens, elimination of invading microbes, and repopulation with healthy gut bacteria. Digestive enzymes play a critical role in the breakdown and absorption of nutrients. Without active enzymes, nutrients pass through the digestive tract and are eliminated without absorption. A healthy digestive tract provides the foundation for overall immune and GI health and supports multiple other body systems by facilitating the absorption of vital nutrients.
Conventional medicine suggests that antibiotics are required to eradicate microbes from the GI tract. However this approach removes good and bad bacteria, and doesn’t address the need to repopulate. Several essential oils have shown antimicrobial activity as effective as antibiotics. Lysozyme is a naturally occurring enzyme that has the ability to breakdown bacterial walls and is another powerful way to eliminate bacteria while avoiding the use of antibiotics.
- Lysozyme has historically been used in commercial applications to naturally preserve foods and control bacteria growth. One study found that lysozyme from egg white could inactivate the bacteria E.coli. It is presumed that this was achieved by lysozyme’s ability to break through the cell wall of the bacteria.
- One study found that thyme essential oil showed antimicrobial activity against clinical multidrug resistant strains of Staphylococcus, Enterococcus, Escherichia, and Pseudomonas. Thyme essential oil at various concentrations strongly inhibited the growth of clinical strains of bacteria suggesting that the use of phyto-pharmaceuticals in the prevention and treatment of various human infections may be reasonable.
- One study found that clove essential oil has antimicrobial and antifungal activity against Staphylococcus epidermidis, Escherichia coli and Candida albicans.
- A limited number of enzymes require the presence of potassium for their activity. The presence of potassium is required for the activity of pyruvate kinase, an enzyme that plays a key role in carbohydrate metabolism. This leads us to believe that supplementation with potassium will be beneficial for carbohydrate breakdown and digestion.
- Research suggests that supplementation with digestive enzymes can improve GI symptoms in patients affected by IBS. Administration of digestive enzymes significantly improved bloating, flatulence and abdominal pain in one study.

What does the Enzymatic Blend do?
Enzymes break down food in order to extract vital nutrients leading to better digestion, less abdominal stress, and greater assimilation of nutrients. Without this breakdown of the food matrix, undigested food passes into the colon, where it can lead to bloating, gas, diarrhea, and cramping. Our modern diet combined with aging can hinder our natural production of the enzymes needed for healthy digestion. Max GI provides a full spectrum of digestive enzymes to ensure optimal digestion.
Which ingredient in Max GI is egg-based?
Lysozyme is an enzyme derived from egg.
What is a hypromellose capsule?
This is a veggie capsule. It is non-animal and suitable for vegetarians.
I had to get off nexus or any prescription for my liver and my doctor is so pleased that these work great!!!
I think that it helps me.
Keeps me happy
Max GI really helps to digest your meal whatever you're eating! Certain things, like grains, don't really agree with me but when I decide to indulge in say, a scone, the Max GI prevents the discomfort and blah feeling I would get otherwise. Love it!
I bought these for my daughter who struggles with stomach issues. she takes one at night on an empty stomach. before she was waking up with stomach pains pretty consistently in the morning and she hasn’t complained about that in a while since taking these vitamins
It was very good! Excellent service! Very prompt and this product is amazing! I highly recommend it!
