Multi Vegetarian Enzyme Blend
Amylase:
Amylase, found in saliva, breaks down carbohydrates. In addition to the salivary glands, the pancreas also excretes this enzyme. It is one of the two most effective digestive enzymes that is secreted in high concentrations by the body. Amylase is from the class of enzymes that hydrolyze starch. Starch is found in foods such as pasta, potatoes and rice. Amylase is commonly found in pineapples, bananas, raisins, potatoes and squash.

Cellulase: Cellulase digests fiber. It breaks down cellulose. Plants are a person’s only source of cellulose as the human body cannot produce it. Chewing liberates the cellulose out of the food, but when people eat raw fruits and vegetables and don’t chew properly, the cellulose is never released. Cellulase may also be lacking because of the way the food was handled by suppliers. Some sources of cellulase are oranges, celery, carrots, lettuce, cabbage and apples.

Protease: Protease is an extremely important digestive enzyme. It is responsible for breaking down proteins which is difficult to do. It is secreted in high concentrations by the body. It is found in both the stomach and pancreatic juices. Protease is a class of enzymes that hydrolyzes or breaks down the peptide bonds that join amino acids together in a protein. It is then that shorter chain proteins or free form amino acids are made available. Some vegetarian sources of protein are pea pods, lentils, alfalfa, and navy beans.

Lactase: Many people cannot digest more than a small amount of milk or other dairy products due to a deficiency in lactase. Lactase is an intestinal enzyme that breaks down lactose, which is milk sugar, into its two constituent sugars to render it absorbable. Humans produce peak amounts of lactase in infancy when milk is necessary for survival. Supplies diminish thereafter.

Lipase: This lipolytic or fat splitting enzyme is found in the blood, pancreatic secretions and tissues. Lipase aids in fat digestion, whereas pancreatic lipase digests fat in a highly alkaline environment, lipases found in food fats work in a more acidic environment. Vegetarian sources include avocados, vegetable oil, rice, bran, wheat germ and olive oil.

Maltase: Maltase is a digestive enzyme which breaks down malt sugars (maltose) which are an intermediate product in the digestion of starch. It may help relieve environmental sensitivities and allergies.

Bromelain: Bromelain is considered a proteolytic enzyme. That means it is good at breaking down difficult proteins. The bromelain enzyme is a strong anti-inflammatory because it can digest proteins that are a byproduct of the inflammatory process. It is used by athletes to prevent post-workout soreness and is believed to facilitate the healing of sports injuries. Bromelain is an enzyme that is found in pineapple. The only other source of bromelain is pineapple juice.

Sucrase: Sucrase is beneficial in helping prevent gastrointestinal problems and discomfort. It is an enzyme that breaks down sugars (sucrose) found in some vegetables and many fruits as well as sugar derived from sugar cane, sugar beets, sorghum, molasses or maple sugar.

Ionic Fulvic Minerals: Minerals and trace minerals are the most basic of nutrients. Since they cannot be made in the body, (hence they are called“essential nutrients”) they must be gotten from our diet or supplementation. Ionic fulvic minerals are not simply inorganic metallic minerals but are an association of a wide variety of organic compounds as methyls, methylenes, aromatic, protonates, heterocyclics, carbonyls, carboxyls, quinines and ketone-ketene-like carbonyls; providing over 76 organically complexed trace minerals and elements in a polyelectrolyte structure. Fulvic acid chelates, complexes and makes minerals soluble for the highest degree of assimilation by the body. Organically compounded minerals are the only way a mineral can be introduced or accepted into the cell where it is vitally needed to assist in metabolic activities as cofactors in all enzymatic reactions. Enzymes all have a mineral component. Inorganic mineral supplements are not fully chelated into organic compounds and may run the risk of becoming toxic to the body, getting stuck in extracellular tissue and in organs making them impossible to be utilized and difficult to remove from the system.

Other Ingredients:
Natural Flavors and Sweeteners
FruiterraTM uses natural mixed berry flavor and stevia as a sweetener. Stevia is a natural non-caloric, sweetener from plants. It is a great replacement for sugar and artificial sweeteners. It inhibits growth and reproduction of some bacteria and other infectious organisms, including the bacteria that cause tooth decay and gum disease.

Guar gum - Guar gum is a natural digestive fiber that helps regulate the absorption of nutrients, including sugar, resulting in a lower rise in blood sugar levels.
