Polyzyme Full Spectrum Vegetarian Enzymes 60 caps $14.95

Polyzyme
New High Potency Full Spectrum Vegetarian Enzyme Formula
Polyzyme™ is one of the most potent non-animal sourced enzyme products currently available. This acid stable, vegetarian enzyme formula is active in the breakdown of fats, carbohydrates and proteins. Polyzyme is a mixture of complementary enzymes with the following ingredients:
  • Protease . . . . . . . 200 mg
  • Bromelain . . . . . . . 120 mg
  • Papain . . . . . . . . 120 mg
  • Amylase . . . . . . . 120 mg
  • Lipase . . . . . . . . 80 mg
Polyzyme™ is a full spectrum vegetarian enzyme that is active on food proteins, fats and carbohydrates. Technological advances permit substitution of most animal source enzymes with natural alternative sources. Polyzyme Protease, Bromelain and Papain effectively break down food proteins. The protease in Polyzyme has a broad spectrum activity on various proteins.

Polyzyme`s enzymes have been painstakingly researched and carefully selected so that only the cleanest, most effective enzymes are used. Polyzyme is formulated with 640 mg of enzymes per capsule, whereas most other enzyme products contain only 250 to 450 mg (including tablet /capsule fillers and binders) per pill. Polyzyme utilizes highly purified, specially selected enzymes from plant and bacterial sources.

Whereas most pancreatic enzymes are relatively unstable in the digestive tract, Polyzyme Protease resists gastric acids, unlike animal-derived preparations which are deactivated in the presence of acid. In the small intestine of healthy individuals, pancreatic enzyme activities decline at different rates. Although 74% of amylase and 22% of trypsin activity survive to the end of the small intestine, only 1% of initial lipase activity is still available at this point.

The greater survivability of amylase is probably due to its resistance to proteolytic degradation. Pancreatic lipase is inactivated at pH less than 4; therefore, animal derived pancreatic lipase will rapidly degrade in the normal stomach reducing its ability to break down fat.

Directions One capsule with a meal or as directed by your health practitioner.
