The Health Benefits of Digestive Enzymes
- Improves nutrient availability
- Improves energy and mental clarity
- Improves blood circulation
- Supports immune functioning
- Relieves digestive disorders
- Promotes detoxification
- Promotes longevity
- Regulates and balances hormones
- Relieves allergies
- Reduces risk for disease
Step 1: Complete Nutrient Digestion
These digestive formulas promote optimum
digestion, nutrient availability, and relieve food in-tolerances.
TPP Digest -the most
comprehensive digestive formula, especially high in
lipase for cholesterol/triglyceride control; also
good for acid reflux.
DigestZyme-for more sensitive
individuals or those experiencing nausea, diarrhea,
and gallbladder difficulties.
Step 2: Proper Blood Circulation
These proteolytic formulas promote circu-lation,
immune modulation, and detoxifica-tion while
supporting the liver and kidneys.
TPP Protease -for chronic conditions and
abnormal immune function; stron-gest, most
effective, and most versatile protease blend
PureZyme-for those persons sensitive to
bromelain or papain and have a more sensitive GI
tract, such as IBS or Chron’s sufferers
Step 3: Good Microflora and Elimination
These probiotic formulas replenish and maintain
healthy intestinal flora while improving the health
of the colon.
TPP Probiotic -for long term antibiotic
use and dysbiosis
Plantadophilus -for lower GI stress
(diarrhea, gastritis, IBS, constipation, etc.) and
is also very soothing and healing for oral
Enzymes are protein molecules that make chemicals
which carry a vital energy factor needed for every
chemical action and reaction that occurs in our
body. There are approximately around 20,000
different enzymes found in each human cell. These
enzymes can combine with co-enzymes (vitamins and
minerals) to form nearly 100,000 various chemicals
that enable us to see, hear, feel, move, think and
digest food. Every organ, every tissue and the 100
trillion cells in our body depend upon the reaction
of enzymes and their specific energy factor they
themselves produce. Nutrition cannot be explained
without describing the part that enzymes play.
It is essential to break down food so as to get
its nutrients. However, for various reasons, we do
not have all digestive functions in optimum
condition to sustain wellness. We experience
deficiencies and irregularities in our development,
lose enzyme functionality during our aging process
and so we end up functioning at less than an optimum
level. Additionally, environmental exposures, stress
levels, in addition to poor food choices continually
undermine digestive function. Even the types of food
we commonly eat play a role, since it is hard to
digest processed or chemically enhanced foods.
Because of these genetic, lifestyle/behavioral, and
food composition factors, no one really has optimum
digestion. For these various reasons it makes good
common sense to supplement the diet with additional
plant based digestive enzymes.
Supplemental enzymes are enzymes that have been
extracted in some manner from either plants or
animals and are taken in supplemental forms. Plant
(mycelia) and food based enzymes are grown and
extracted. Animal enzymes such as Pancreatin are
taken from the pancreas of a hog or ox. Pepsin is
prepared from the stomach of pigs and trypsin is
from the intestine of the same animals. An animal
enzyme is limited in the digestive system.
The enzymes of choice are as follows: plant food
enzymes such as bromelain from pineapple and papain
from papaya which are protease (protein splitting)
enzymes. Mycelia (plant based) enzymes are grown on
a plant and extracted naturally without
contamination. These enzymes are protease (protein
splitting) enzymes, polysaccharolytic (carbohydrate
splitting) enzymes and lipases (fat splitting)
enzymes. They work throughout the entire digestive
tract. Protease enzymes are blended to work in both
the digestive and circulatory systems.
Getting Started with Enzymes
People are continuously being advised to take
various supplements, herbs, and vitamins or to eat a
certain diet in order to improve health. And yet no
focus is placed on ensuring that whatever is being
taken is also being digested and absorbed. The
assumption is made, even by nutrition experts, that
we all digest equally and completely. However, we
know that this is not the case. BioDézyne Wellness Programs therefore have their core scientific and clinical
wellness philosophy based on three intricate physio-biochemical
needs. Our starting point is simple: support
digestion, improve circulation, and facilitate the
elimination of waste.
1. Ensure the proper digestion, absorption, and
utilization of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats
necessary for the body to sustain health and
2. Ensure adequate blood circulation, removal of
metabolic waste, and optimized immune modulation.
3. Maintain a good microflora within the GI
tract, which is an integral part of the body’s
biochemical and homeostatic basis.
Our belief is simple. Give the body the nutrients
it needs, clear away the waste, and allow the body
to manage its resources. We call this “The Basics”
because, no matter the health condition, this is
where you start. This set of three main products
constitutes the foundation of the BioDézyne’s
approach to health and wellness.
Complementing Health with Digestive Enzymes by Lisa
Helffrich, RD, LD
According to the Vice President of a major enzyme
manufacturing facility, supplemental enzyme sales
have risen significantly over the past five years.
This increase is not surprising. It makes sense.
Nutrition professionals and enlightened consumers
are waking up to the fact that we are a
mal-digesting society. It makes no difference if we
are eating right. If we are not also digesting
right, disease and ill health are still bound to
Every biochemical reaction is driven or
controlled by the presence of energy-rich protein
molecules known as enzymes. Enzymes, as catalysts,
increase the rate at which a reaction reaches
equilibrium and, like other catalysts, are not
changed during the reaction. Digestive enzymes break
down the food we eat into a form the body’s cells
recognize and can use. Supplemental digestive
enzymes can therefore enhance the bioavailability of
the nutrients we ingest. The benefits include
overall improved nutritional status, resulting in
enhanced immune function, decreased allergic
reactions, and better elimination of toxic waste.
As health-conscious people, we can agree on the
importance of proper nutrition. But how do we define
nutrition? Nutrition is not simply limited to the
choice of good food or high quality supplements. One
must also digest, absorb, and transport those
essential nutrients and then eliminate waste in
order for the body to truly benefit from good food.
So does it not therefore make sense to assist,
support, and enhance the digestive system?
