Supplemental Digestive Enzymes are catalysts.  A Catalyst increases the rate of chemical reactions.  Therefore, these supplemental enzymes enable the body to breakdown…fats, carbohydrates, proteins, sugars, and fibres…for the enhancement of proper digestion to optimize nutrient and mineral absorption.

The natural enzymes we should receive in the foods we eat are destroyed in cooking.

Enzymes are also decreased by the following:

  • stress                         illness                       pregnancy
  • caffeine                     alcohol                      aging
  • some medications

The result of poor digestion is a lack of nutrients and minerals that creates a deficit in the body leading to potential health maladies.
