Q: What is with all the different kinds of enzymes? How do I choose which one to take?
A: Digestive enzymes catalyze digestion, breaking down larger molecules into more easily absorbed particles, thus supporting digestion and nutrient absorption. Different digestive enzymes specialize in the digestion of different molecules, like Lipase, for example, which works to break down fats and fat-containing foods like nuts, meats, dairy products and oils. Each blend of enzymes contains different ratios of various enzymes, to treat a variety of digestive issues. Our Gluten Relief Enzyme Blend, for example, has a proprietary blend of enzymes to help break down gluten, and reduce common side-effects experienced by those with a difficulty digesting gluten (bloating, gas and abdominal pain). Consider how your digestion may need aid and consult with your physician or medical profession to determine which enzyme blend may be best for you.
Q: Why didn’t you make liquid enzymes?
A: Well, we tried! At first we attempted making our enzymes liquid formulas, but we weren’t able to make it shelf stable. Then we attempted to make a powder that would be mixed into water, but that wasn’t very palatable! Ultimately, we determined that a capsule would have to suffice. We are, however, confident in these capsules, otherwise we wouldn't have made them!
