Enzymes & Digestion


Essential to the absorption of food, our bodies could not absorb nutrients from food without the help from various enzymes in our digestive tract. Enzyme production begins in the mouth and follows through the entire digestive tract. The body reacts to the smell and the presence of food to increase enzymatic production and break down larger food molecules into usable building blocks and nutrients.

Lack of sufficient enzyme production may lead to malabsorption, bloating, gas, diarrhea and allergies. Populations at risk for enzyme deficiency are:

• Older adults

• Those with enzyme deficiency disorders

• Those undergoing chemotherapy and radiation

• Individuals with certain allergies or intolerances

We offer three forms of enzymes:

1. Chewable

2. Tablet

3. Capsule

Products like Chewable Papaya (#701) are formulated to break down starches and proteins, whereas the many of our enzyme product line formulations are meant to support the digestion of carbohydrates, protein and fat.

Psyllium husk naturally provides an excellent source of dietary fiber. Our Whole Psyllium Husk powder offers a natural, gentle source of fiber, which can help support...Full Details
