Plant Enzymes - 240 Vcaps
 
  • Supports Healthy Digestion
  • With Lactase, Protease, Papain and Bromelain
  • 100% Vegetarian Formula

This supplement provides a comprehensive blend of vegetarian enzymes active in a broad pH range to aid in food digestion.  Protease breaks down protein, Amylase breaks down starch, Lipase breaks down fat, Cellulase breaks down fiber and Lactase breaks down lactose (milk sugar).  Papain and Bromelain are primarily protein digesting enzymes.


Processed foods with additives, preservatives, nitrates, etc., do not contain the digestive enzymes needed for proper digestion and absorption of nutrients. Because our diet is made up mostly of these foods, our bodies are deficient in many nutrients, and we need to supplement. These foods also create harmful bacteria & yeast overgrowth in our gut causing inflammation that leads to illness.

The more raw and organic food we eat, the more alive and well we will be. But, even non-organic raw food is better for you than cooked food – especially when it comes to enzymes. Raw foods like avocado, spinach and sprouts naturally contain enzymes. However, when these foods are heated, their enzymes are destroyed.

Enzyme-free foods force your body to steal enzymes from other parts of the body, just to digest, rather than using the enzymes from the food itself to do the job. This depletes the limited supply of enzymes we have in our body. Low enzyme levels are associated with old age. In fact, as we age we have fewer enzymes available and normal digestion slows down. This in turn affects the absorption of nutrients, which then leads to sickness and disease.
