Choosing Enzymes for Your Practice

Practitioners often ask us, “What should I look for when choosing enzyme products for my practice?”  This blog aims to succinctly answer that question but first encourages you to identify the concerns you most frequently encounter.  Are they concerned with gut health and digestive challenges?  Or are they concerned with maintaining heart health, cognitive function, or something different altogether?  The answers to these questions hold the keys to which enzyme formulas may best suit your practice and patients’ needs. 

While structural issues may be causative factors in your patients’ health status, enzymes can still play valuable roles in many areas of their lives.  Whether they’re experiencing microflora imbalance, gut motility issues, occasional heartburn or acid indigestion, food cravings, food intolerances, immune system challenges, joint concerns, cardiovascular/circulatory matters, or are interested in healthy stem cell renewal, Enzyme Science has a product and protocol for you.

All Enzyme Science formulas contain pure, vegetarian enzymes with supportive functional ingredients but never contain any GMOs, colors, fillers, binders and common allergens.  This purity greatly contributes to the safety of enzyme therapy. All Enzyme Science formulas contain Thera-blendTM teams of enzymes which are designed to perform along the gastrointestinal tract, in acid, neutral and alkaline environments.  This process allows our formulas to break more bonds, and function over a broader pH range, ensuring maximum efficacy.*

To determine which product would be a best fit, refer to the quick reference chart below for fast assessment of our enzyme supplementation/support options.

 

QUICK ENZYME ASSESSMENT CHART

You may try:

Formula Highlights

Occasional Heartburn/Acid Indigestion*

Acid CalmTM

Our most soothing formula. Contains enzymes, herbs and Zn Carnosine to encourage healthy GI mucosal lining*.

Occasional Gas, Bloating, Digestive Complaints*

Complete DigestionTM

Our gentle potency digestive support formula with 125 M units of 8 strains of probiotics and ATPro™ for those wishing to start with a lower yet effective potency enzyme supplement. Great for those who eat small portions, enzyme-rich foods, or those not needing maximum enzyme support but still wanting to assist macronutrient breakdown, nutrient availability and overall healthy digestive function.* 

Occasional Gas, Bloating, Digestive Complaints*

Critical DigestionTM

Our highest potency full-spectrum digestive with 1 B. units of 8 strains of probiotics and ATPro™, for those seeking maximum enzyme support for macronutrient breakdown, nutrient availability and healthy digestive function.*  High lipase (and high potency in general) are ideal for those wishing to ease burden to the pancreas and gall bladder and assist with fat/EFA digestion.*

Food Intolerance Symptoms*

Intolerance ComplexTM

Our Multiple Food Intolerance formula. Contains no probiotics but includes highest potencies of DPP-4, lactase, xylanase, cellulase, and a-Galactosidase to assist gluten, casein, lactose, phenol and specific carbohydrate digestion.*  Also contains additional enzymes and ATProTM to aid with macronutrients, nutrient availability and overall digestive health.*

Gluten Intolerance*

Identify GlutenTM

Highest DPP-4 per single capsule.  Most suitable for those specifically looking for gluten (and casein) support, as DPP-4 helps support both gluten and casein digestion.*  Formula also contains amylases for the carbohydrate portion of the wheat (and related gluten-containing grains).

Dairy Lactose Intolerance*

Identify DairyTM

Highest Lactase per single capsule with Protease and Lipase Thera-blendsTM.  Most suitable for those specifically looking for lactose intolerance support; also good for those uncertain if casein or milk fat are also problematic as Protease and Lipase Thera-blendsTM may help address dairy proteins and fats.*  Additional digestive enzymes assist with the other components of the dairy-rich meal.

Occasional Gas and Bloating from fibrous foods*

Identify Bean & VeggieTM

Highest alpha galactosidase and cellulase per single capsule. Most suitable for those specifically seeking assistance with digestion of fibrous beans, vegetables and grains.*

Muscle Tissue and Joint Health*

MyoMendTM

A blend of heat-specific bromelain and papain along with Rutin, Serratiopeptidase, Nattokinase, Protease Thera-blendTM and minerals.  This formula combines the widest variety of proteolytic enzymes, chosen for their ability to support healthy inflammatory response.*

Healthy Mobility, Inflammatory and Immune Response*

Serratio PlusTM

Our highest-potency serratiopeptidase per capsule.  Serratiopeptidase is well suited for day-to-day challenges.  Research indicates its benefits in assisting with sinus health, post-operative recovery1, increased circulation/cardiovascular function2,, and joint health3*

Stem Cell Health/Cognitive Function*

StemXCell ProTM

Unique marriage of Enzyme Science's enzyme expertise and a leading university’s stem cell research.  Formula includes patented NT-020 blend, scientifically shown to support healthy stem cell proliferation (~70% over control).* Enzymes within this formula help assist uptake of NT-020 and provide additional antioxidant support4*  

Immune System Health*

Enzyme Defense ProTM

Contains high-potency catalase, nattokinase, serratiopeptidase, Mucolase™ and Protease Thera-blendTM enzymes along with vitamin D3, L-lysine, and minerals to support/promote healthy immune function.*

Healthy Microflora Balance*

Candida ControlTM

Contains Cellulase and Protease Thera-blendTM enzyme teams with broccoli seed extract and 1 B units of 8 strains of shelf stable probiotics per dose to encourage healthy microflora balance while minimizing common cleansing discomforts.* Research indicates that sulforaphane can enhance detoxification activity of phase 2 liver enzymes (like glutathione S-transferases, glucuronyl transferases and quinone reductase). 5,6,7*
