Enzymedica – The Enzyme Experts

EnzymedicaLogoBy Susan Brown

Enzymedica, the leading manufacturer of plant-based enzyme supplements is renowned for  superior formulations and insistence on quality.  Enzymedica produces cutting edge enzyme formulas that provide targeted support for digestive issues, food intolerances, cardiovascular issues, proper immune function and healthy inflammatory processes.  

Established in 1998, Enzymedica leads the enzyme category by offering products that contain the highest therapeutic activities available.  Enzymedica is dedicated to using only the highest quality plant and plant-based enzymes in their products. Their formulas never contain fillers or excipients, nor do they utilize flow agents in their production. This guarantees the purest products with immediate bioavailability, as well as products that inspire confidence in their safety and efficacy.

Enzymedica is dedicated to providing exceptional enzyme-focused supplements at the most therapeutic levels available in the natural foods industry and beyond.  Their exclusive Thera-blend™ process is used in the manufacturing of its protease, lipases, amylase and cellulase enzymes thereby achieving greater activity over a broader pH range.  This process increases potency by enabling each enzyme to break down more bonds throughout the entire digestive system.  When formulated for therapeutic purposes, Thera-blend enzymes are customized for optimal performance throughout the entire body.

GlutenEase  –  GlutenEase contains proteases high in DPP-IV activity that assist in normalizing inflammatory response to the gluten peptide for better digestion and utilization of gluten containing foods.  GlutenEase proactively supports the gut, allowing proteins to be properly broken down and absorbed in their digested state.  GlutenEase may also be used by those who wish to remain on a gluten-free, casein-free diet to ensure complete breakdown of proteins safely and effectively.

Digest Gold  –  Digest Gold represents the most potent digestive enzyme formula available.  Digest Gold is a good choice for individuals who are lipase deficient.  Lipase is the enzyme responsible for breaking down fats, lipids and triglycerides.  It is also ideal for anyone suffering with health issues not necessarily associated with digestion.  When stress is reduced to the system responsible for breaking down and assimilating the foods consumed, more energy and thus more metabolic enzymes are made available to the systems responsible for overall health including the immune system, cardiovascular system, endocrine system and nervous system.

Lacto –  Lacto is a lactase enzyme supplement formulated for individuals who have difficulty digesting foods that contain lactose and dairy protein.  Lacto contains the highest amount of lactase along with eight additional enzymes.  Supplementation of lactase allows for lactose to be more readily digestible and absorbed.  By taking Lacto with meals that contain lactose, you are providing your body with the enzymes needed for proper digestion of not only dairy sugar (lactose) but dairy protein, fats, carbohydrates, meat protein and fiber.

Gastro –  Gastro™ reduces the gas and bloating often associated with the consumption of raw vegetables, grains and legumes.  Gastro is ideal for anyone exhibiting amylase deficiency and for those who consume a high carbohydrate or vegetarian diet.  Gastro contains four different types of enzymes that break down carbohydrates such as starch, glycogen and related polysaccharides, reducing stress on the gallbladder, liver and pancreas.  Moreover, Gastro has a very high amount of the enzyme alpha-galactosidase that is imperative in digesting the sugars from legumes and other foods that create gas and bloating.
