All about Essential1: Digestive Health


The health of your digestive system determines how you are able to absorb the nutrients essential to maintaining your metabolism, your immune system, and even your moods.

Aging, poor health, medications, and other factors can lead to declines in the amount of both "good" bacteria and digestive enzymes in your digestive system, but a daily dose of Essential1: Digestive Health can help to restore them.

TWO pills, TWO ways to benefit

The two customized pills in Essential1: Digestive Health provide a unique formulation of probiotics and natural digestive enzymes.

The probiotic capsule contains three strains of "good" bacteria (ones most commonly found in a healthy digestive tract) in a prebiotic medium, which feeds the good bacteria and allows it to flourish.

The goal is to restore the good bacteria, and create favorable conditions for keeping the "bad" bacteria under control.

The capsule contains just the right amount of healthy bacteria-some 4.5 billion altogether, including...


  • Bifidobacteria, the most abundant and important bacterium in the intestine.
  • Lactobacillus acidophilus and Lactobacillus bulgaricus, two potent immunity-enhancing bacteria.

The enzyme tablet blends 14 natural digestive enzymes to help your body break down food more easily -and with less intestinal gas and bloating - as you incorporate more healthy foods into your diet.

Digestive Health


Better health at EVERY stage


When beginning the Medifast 5 & 1 Plan, enzymes and pre- and probiotics can prime your digestive tract and gear it up to do the metabolic work it needs to do.

Essential1: Digestive Health can help restore your digestive tract's good bacteria, and allow you to metabolize and absorb nutrients for optimal weight loss.


As we get older, our bodies don't produce the same amounts of digestive enzymes as they once did, especially if we have a poor diet.

Large amounts of fats and sugars, along with too few raw vegetables, can speed up the natural decline in our digestive enzymes.

Any time you make an adjustment in your diet (including when you start the Medifast 5 & 1 Plan), you may experience gas, bloating, or changes in "regularity."

The digestive enzyme tablet can help your body break down fats, protein, and carbohydrates, as well as lactose (milk sugar) and fiber, from your Medifast Meals and your Lean & Green Meals.


Once you reach your healthy weight and begin to transition to the Maintenance Phase, you'll be gradually re-introducing more vegetables, fruits, dairy products, and whole grains back into your eating plan.

Taking Essential1: Digestive Health supports you as you ease your way into lifelong healthy eating patterns, and helps you continue to feel great, day after day.
