Enzymes are specialized proteins that function as catalysts in almost all cellular functions and chemical reactions throughout the body.
play a critical role in:
- growth & healing
- immune function
- hormone regulation
- digesting food nutrients
- converting nutrients to energy in cells
Enzymes can originate inside and outside the body.
Endogenous enzymes originate in the body and can be classified as:
active in blood, tissues, and organs
excreted by the liver and pancreas and help the body convert food to usable nutrients
Exogenous enzymes originate outside the body and are classified as food enzymes.
Food enzymes are found in raw, unprocessed foods and help break down nutrients during digestion.
The body’s ability to constantly produce metabolic and digestive enzymes is limited by raw material availability and production capacity.
If our diets do not include sufficient food enzymes to break down the food we eat, our body’s endogenous enzyme resources must be directed toward the production of digestive enzymes to speed conversion of food to bioavailable nutrients.
Production capacity directed toward the production of digestive enzymes is capacity not available for the production of important metabolic enzymes.
The body’s constant need to produce digestive enzymes can result in decreased levels of metabolic enzymes that are critical for optimal health and cell function.
Metabolic enzymes are also necessary for
-tissue growth and repair
-managing toxic waste products
When we eat foods that are rich in food enzymes, our bodies can use fewer resources to produce digestive enzymes and have more capacity to create optimal levels of metabolic enzymes.
What Makes DigestZen TerraZyme Unique?
DigestZen TerraZyme is a proprietary combination of enzymes most likely deficient in the modern diet.
The 10 whole food enzymes work primarily through promoting more efficient digestion of food nutrients and by reducing the demand for internal production of digestive nutrients, thus freeing resources for optimal levels of metabolic enzyme production and activity.
Not only does this ensure that your body is able to use the nutrition it consumes, but it also can help support specific food intolerances as mentioned above, especially for those with intolerances of fats, proteins, or carbohydrates.
One of the many benefits of better digestion is increased cellular energy.
Directions for Use
Take 1-3 capsules with meals throughout the day.
If your meal includes lots of fresh, raw foods, take one capsule.
If your meal includes highly processed, cooked foods or food products known to cause specific GI discomfort, take two to three capsules with meal.
Some people may experience an initial change to digestive schedule and function when they begin using enzyme supplements.
For most people, these symptoms are mild and should disappear after a few days.
