Total Enzyme

The digestive system is responsible for digesting and absorbing the nutrients you need to maintain health. It is a complicated system and when compromised you can experience a wide array of symptoms such as gas, bloating, indigestion, fluctuating bowl movements, abdominal pain and cramping. Poor digestion over time can lead to other seemingly unrelated symptoms such as fatigue, headaches, impaired circulation, bloating and general malaise. Your overall health is dependent on this system functioning properly because it’s where every cell in your body gets the energy and nutrients it needs to live, repair and reproduce itself.
The food we eat is a complex of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. These huge macromolecules must be broken down into smaller units that can be absorbed into the blood stream and assimilated by the body. Poor digestion can lead to protein linkage that impairs blood flow in the circulatory tract limiting the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the cells.
Digestive enzymes are specialized proteins, each designed to break apart a specific type of molecule in your food. In a healthy digestive system, the enzymes present in raw foods combine with the digestive enzymes from your body to effectively and completely break down the food into particles that your body can use. Unfortunately, cooking and processing can destroy the natural enzymes. This puts the full burden of proper digestion on your body’s enzymes. Since we are all genetically unique with different diets and lifestyles, our capacity to produce our own digestive enzymes varies with each individual. Research has also shown a decreased ability to make adequate digestive enzymes as we age. Supplemental enzymes can support the digestive process in the breakdown of food and the absorption of nutrients.

The following enzymes are included in Total Enzyme formula:

  • Peptidase: breaks down proteins into usable amino acids
  • Papain: breaks down protein and is beneficial in reducing inflammation
  • Amylase: breaks down carbohydrates and starches
  • Maltase: breaks down carbohydrates and some simple sugars.
  • Bromelain: : breaks down protein and is beneficial in reducing inflammation
  • Cellulase: breaks down plant fiber and aid in the digestion of raw vegetables
  • Lipase: works with the gallbladder in the digestion of fats and oils
  • Betain: breaks down proteins in the stomach and aids in mineral absorption
  • Pancreatin: assists the pancreas in the digestion of carbohydrates, proteins and fats

Suggested Use: Take 1 capsule before or during each meal.

These enzymes work synergistically to assist your body in the proper digestion and assimilation of your food for total health and wellness.
