Best Seller Best Seller Best Seller Best Seller ABOUT Dr. Joe’s Enzyme Support is an extensive blend of acid-resistant, plant-based enzymes designed to help maximize the digestion and absorption of nutrients from food. 90 count per bottle. Each capsule includes lipase, amylase, lactase, protease, and CereCalase to aid in the breakdown of protein, fat, starches, fiber and other difficult-to-digest foods. Poor digestion can cause bloating and gas, cramping and constipation, among other gastrointestinal issues. Conversely, proper digestion of food prevents fermentation in the gut and the proliferation of “bad” bacteria and yeast at the expense of “good” intestinal bacteria. Dr. Joe’s Enzyme Support is designed to support digestion and absorption of nutrients by using plant-based enzymes, rather than the traditional animal-based enzymes. Plant-based enzymes can function in a wider pH range of 2.5-8.5, as compared to the 6.5-7.5 necessary to activate animal-based enzymes, and still offer the same digestive strength. This broad pH range makes Dr. Joe’s Enzyme Support especially beneficial for individuals with lower gastric acid levels or inconsistent pH levels. Each enzyme has been tested for pH, temperature and gastric survivability to ensure enzyme activity, allowing for full-spectrum digestive support. SUGGESTED USE 90 count per bottle. 1 capsule 15 minutes before a meal or as recommended by your health care professional. INGREDIENT BENEFITS Enzyme Blend — Digestive enzymes have a long history of use for those who need digestive enzyme support. In the past, animal enzymes were preferred to vegetable enzymes for their protein digesting strength, though they required a narrower pH window of 6.5-7.5 in order to be activated. Dr. Joe’s Enzyme Support utilizes new, plant-based enzymes which function within a broader pH range of 2.5-8.5, and still offer the digestive strength of animal-based enzymes. This broad pH window of activity makes it especially helpful for individuals with lower gastric acid levels or inconsistent pH’s. Each enzyme has been tested in pH, temperature, and gastric survivability studies to ensure enzyme activity. In addition, Enzyme Support also includes DPP4, one of the primary components of peptidase, which has been shown to digest and neutralize gluten. This action may help to support gluten-sensitive individuals who ingest it inadvertently. The blend of proteases is also effective in breaking down proteins from soy, whey, and casein from milk products. Lipases for fat breakdown as well as amylases for carbohydrate breakdown are also included for full spectrum digestive support. Gentian and Artichoke — Herbalists have used bitters, including gentian, to stimulate natural digestive enzymes in the mouth and stomach for hundreds of years. Studies have shown that artichoke, categorized as a choleretic, stimulates the body’s natural production of bile, which is responsible for emulsifying fats in our diets. Artichoke also increases the surface area of fats, which allows enzymes to more efficiently break them down. Artichoke and gentian root provide an excellent vegetarian alternative to ox bile, which is traditionally used in digestive supplements to support bile production. Signs and Symptoms of Deficiencies Symptoms of deficiency may include: Diarrhea… Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) can cause problems with undigested food moving too quickly through the digestive tract. Gas and bloating. Stomach pain. Foul-smelling, greasy stools (steatorrhea). Weight loss.
