Total Enzymes

SKU: 2404A
Supportive Function: Gentle, fast-acting plant enzymes assist in the normal breakdown of food that is necessary to extract vital nutrients from our diet. Often a pancreatic insufficiency limits the optimal utilization of essential vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. Ideally, food should be completely broken down to assure that macromolecules do not pass into the system. Plant enzymes work in various pH environments, increasing their effectiveness along the gastrointestinal tract.

When are Plant Enzymes helpful? High-potency, plant-digestive enzymes are highly suggested to enhance digestion. They are extremely well tolerated, work in a wide range of pH environments (for the entire intestinal tract), and optimize the breakdown of food. Complete breakdown of food eliminates multiple allergen sources, and provides support for allergy-related conditions such as eczema.
Clinical Applications Research: Amylase: Amylase breaks down large carbohydrates (starches and other polysaccharides) to disaccharides including sucrose, lactose and maltose. (Shils and Young, Modern Nutrition in Health and Disease, Lea & Febiger, Philadelphia, PA, 1988)

Protease: Protease breaks down long protein chains (polypeptides) into single amino acids (Shils and Young, Modern Nutrition in Health and Disease, Lea & Febiger, Philadelphia, PA, 1988)

Lipase: Lipase digests fats (triglycerides) into free fatty acids and glycerol. (Shils and Young, Modern Nutrition in Health and Disease, Lea & Febiger, Philadelphia, PA, 1988)

Invertase: Invertase is a concentrated source of disaccharidase enzymes. Invertase breaks down the disaccharide sucrose (refined table sugar) into glucose and fructose. The American diet contains high amounts of refined sugar. The inability to break the sugar down may contribute to digestive distress and may be a contributing factor in food allergies. Supplemental invertase will increase the assimilation and utilization of this sugar.

Malt Diastase: Malt diastase assures the breakdown of starch into maltose and then into glucose molecules, allowing greater absorption of this energy-giving sugar.

Lactase: Lactase deficiency is a common and well-known form of carbohydrate intolerance. Lactase digests lactose (milk sugar) into glucose and galactose. Lactase activity declines as we age, which causes maldigestion of milk and other lactose-containing foods. Approximately 70% of the world's population are deficient in lactase and are therefore unable to digest dairy products.

Cellulase: Cellulase is not found in humans, but it aids in breaking the bonds found in the fiber matrices which envelope most of the nutrients in plants. Cellulase increases the nutritional value of fruits and vegetables.

Beet (root): Beets aid in gallbladder function, lymphatic function and digestion. Red beet root is excellent for liver and biliary detoxification.
