If you know me personally, you know how much these enzymes have helped me get my life back. I think this is the number one supplement (along with P3-OM) that everyone should be taking. You can read about my experience with them here.
You cannot go down to the local health food store and get this caliber of enzymes. Here's why it's hard to find one like this. And to check out this product, you can click anywhere else on this description.
You want a cultured enzyme.
Enzymes are categorized in multiple areas. There are plant-based enzymes, animal-based enzymes, systemic enzymes, and cultured enzymes.
A cultured enzyme is somewhere between 100 and 1,000 times more powerful than an enzyme that you'll find in food.
The reason why is because they've been grown and cultivated on very specific mediums that allow the manufacturers to increase the effectiveness and potency of the enzyme.
You want a plant-based enzyme.
This is because plant-based enzymes work along the entire intestinal tract.
Animal-based enzymes on the other hand only work in certain parts of the intestinal tract. Which means food remains undigested.
You want a BROAD pH enzyme.
A top quality enzyme will function in a broad pH range from 2 to 12. Lesser quality enzymes will get destroyed by stomach acids.
You want an enzyme that is packed with protein-digesting enzymes ( known as proteolytic enzymes).
When comparing the label of enzymes, make sure to look at the content of protein-digesting enzymes.
These are by far the most valuable enzymes for health and vitality because they are the ones who break down protein into usable amino acids. These amino acids is what your body uses to rebuild and repair itself.
Check the label for the amount of "protease".
There are a lot of companies out there who make enzymes. But a lot of them skimp out when it comes to the proteolytic enzyme content.
This is because proteolytic enzymes are expensive. So in order to keep costs low and profits high, they will put very little amounts.
Protease is VERY important because the protein-digesting effects are what provide the biggest benefits to your body... from eliminating old undigested proteins to giving you glowing skin and a flatter belly after giving birth.
