Suggested Use: 1-3 capsules. The dosage is dependent on the types of foods eaten and the individual's difficulty of digestion. And If alcohol is consumed with the meal. Symptoms should dissipate within fifteen to thirty minutes.
Some people may require an additional 2 capsules of ACID SOOTHE™ for diarrhea or heartburn.
Individuals with extreme gallbladder or gastrointestinal problems may benefit from a regimen of ACID SOOTHE™ for one week followed by a continuing program of DIGEST™ along with ACID SOOTHE™.


Digest Gold represents the most potent digestive enzyme formula available. It has been formulated to assist in digesting proteins, fats, carbohydrates and fiber. Digest Gold is more potent than Digest. It contains 4 more enzymes and is approximately three times stronger than Digest in most categories.

Digest Gold™ is ideal for anyone suffering from health issues not necessarily associated with digestion.

When stress is reduced to the system responsible for breaking down and assimilating the foods consumed, more energy and thus more metabolic enzymes are made available to other systems of the body responsible for overall health.
This includes but is not limited to the immune system, cardiovascular system, endocrine system, nervous system, etc.

This product helps alleviate conditions associated with gastrointestinal distress! • Heartburn
• Diarrhea
• Acid Reflux
• Digestive discomfort
• Indigestion

The ingredients in Acid Soothe™ provide the body with pure plant enzymes for delivery along with nutrients specific to the gastrointestinal region.

Marshmallow Root has a high protein and mucilage-carbohydrate content which the body can use to manufacture the necessary materials for new tissue production. Marshmallow also has mucilaginous (adhesive) properties enabling it to surround and expel foreign and toxic matter, having a soothing effect on the inflamed mucosal membrane tissue. Marshmallow has been found to relieve irritation of the mucous membranes of the respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts and to help normalize mucous secretions. In conditions where inflammation is induced by excess accumulation of uric acid. Marshmallow Root helps remove this acid from the body.

Papaya Leaf has been known for its wonderful digestive work and contains proteolytic (acts on protein) enzymes. Papaya Leaf has inherited the reputation of ''biological scalpel" because it selectively digests dead tissue without affecting the surrounding live tissue. It has been used to treat wounds and ulcers. Papaya Leaf has properties to protect the stomach mucosa from damage and ulcer formation.

Prickly Ash is known for its support of the glands and aid in tissue repair, colic, ulcers and gastrointestinal distress. Prickly Ash will fortify the nervous system as well.

Gota Kola is known in India as a longevity herb, it is uncommonly rich in B vitamins and potassium and is used as a natural diuretic.

Take 2 or more Acid Soothe™ capsules anytime as needed for digestive discomfort.


Allerase was formulated to be taken on an empty stomach for relief of symptoms often associated with pollen and dander sensitivities. It contains the highest amount of Thera-Blend Amylase.

Allerase can be taken between meals for therapeutic effect to support those individuals who suspect they are amylase deficient. Common symptoms include but are not limited to sinus congestion, itchy watery eyes, fatigue, blood sugar imbalance or frequent headaches.

Allergies:
In many cases allergens such as pollen, cigarette smoke, pet dander and other histamine inducing substances cause an immune system response, i.e. the creation of histamine. Histamine production is a reaction by the body to a perceived pathogen with the symptoms of watery, itchy eyes, runny nose, coughing etc in an effort to expel said pathogen. Amylase taken therapeutically on an empty stomach may relieve a person of such symptoms.

Sugar Imbalance, Sugar Intolerance:
Fatigue, anxiety and headaches are all byproducts of the body’s inability to utilize the amount of sugar being consumed. The enzyme amylase works well in breaking down sugar into usable forms. Allerase when taken therapeutically can help an individual control sugar cravings by raising blood sugar levels.

Nutritional Information
Amylase Thera-blend
Glucoamylase
Invertase
Suggested Use: Take 1 capsule on an empty stomach 2 to 3 times per day (30 minutes before or 2 hours after a meal). More may be taken if necessary.
Contraindications: Allerase is not recommended for diabetics who are medicated. The amount of Amylase can elevate blood sugars. Digest is a more balancing formula for these individuals. Diabetics who are able to control their symptoms through diet (type II) will be fine on Allerase.


For Yeast Overgrowth with High Potency Cellulase and Protease Enzymes Candidiasis: Yeast Overgrowth, Candida Overgrowth
The combination of Cellulase and Protease enzymes was formulated to manage yeast overgrowth. This product contain(s)s the highest amount of cellulase enzymes than any Enzymedica product.

New allergies to foods, fatigue, poor digestion, gas, heartburn, sugar cravings, irritability, frequent headaches, poor memory, "fogged in" feeling, dizziness, recurring depression, vaginal infections, menstrual difficulties, prostatitis, urinary tract infections, hay fever, postnasal drip, habitual coughing, catch colds easily, sore throat, athlete's foot, skin rash, psoriasis, cold extremities, arthritis-like symptoms.

Candida albicans is a yeast-like fungus that normally lives in healthy balance in the body. It is found mostly in the intestines, genital tract, mouth, and throat. When the balance is upset, infection results. This is known as Candidiasis and the fungus travels to all parts of the body through the bloodstream. It affects both men and woman.

Candida in the mouth is called thrush.
Candida in the vagina is called vaginitis (yeast infection).
Three Reasons Why Enzymes May Help With Candida Yeast Overgrowth

    * In individuals with yeast overgrowth there is often a large amount of undigested fiber in the large intestine. It is believed that the mucous that the body naturally produces due to the difficulty of digesting this fiber (cellulose) may protect the yeast overgrowth from our body’s natural overgrowth prevention mechanisms.

      Cellulase is the enzyme that breaks down fiber. It is also the only digestive enzyme our body does not make. By adding cellulase to the diet this fiber can be removed along with the mucous and our body is able to achieve balance.

    * Fungi is a group of organisms formerly regarded as plants lacking chlorophyll. They can either exist as single cells or make up a multi-cellular body called a mycelium, which consists of filaments known as hyphae. The cell contains some fungal cellulose or a compound called chitin. Chitin is a polysaccharide, or carbohydrate, which is structurally very similar to cellulose. For the same reasons cellulase may help remove undigested fiber in the colon, it has been used in breaking down this “cellulose-like” chitin.*

    * The inside of the cell of yeast is mostly protein. The enzyme protease has the ability to hydrolyze (digest) protein. Protease has been used in clinics all over the world to break down this fungus and prevent its overgrowth. The addition of protease to this formula helps prevent "die-off".

Nutritional Information:

This product contains no fillers.

Suggested Use: Take Candidase™ for moderate symptoms of yeast overgrowth take 2 capsules, 3 times a day at least ½ hour before or 2 hours after a meal for 7 days (for maintenance 2 a day).
Contraindications

Candidase™ should not be taken with timed release medications that use cellulose as its timed release mechanism.


This product contains a high potency lactase along with eight additional enzymes.This lactase enzyme supplement, is formulated for individuals who have difficulty digesting foods that contain Lactose and dairy protein.

Between 30 and 50 million Americans are lactose intolerant.

Lactose intolerance is a condition caused by a lack of an enzyme called lactase. Certain ethnic and racial populations are more widely affected than others. As many as 75 percent of all African Americans and American Indians and 90 percent of Asian Americans are lactose intolerant. The condition is least common among persons of northern European descent.

Lactase is the enzyme in the small intestine that digests lactose (a dairy protein). Normally, lactase breaks lactose down into a form that can be easily absorbed by the blood. When there is not enough lactase to digest the amount of lactose consumed, water is retained in the bowel, which, results in bloating and diarrhea. Lactose that passes into the large intestine is fermented by bacteria. This produces carbon dioxide, hydrogen and methane. This may lead to bloating, cramping and gas.
Lactose Intolerance Indications

Symptoms include cramps, gas and diarrhea. They usually occur 30 minutes to two hours after ingesting lactose containing foods. The severity of symptoms usually depends on the amount of lactose ingested and how much of the enzyme, lactase, remains in the intestinal tract.

Supplementation of lactase allows for lactose to be more readily digestible and absorbed. By taking Lacto with meals that contain lactose, you are providing your body with the enzymes needed for proper digestion of not only
dairy protein (lactose) but fats, carbohydrates, meat protein and fiber.

This product was formulated to aid in the proper digestion of fats. It is for the fat digestion and metabolism, as well as the health of the cardiovascular system.

• Cholesterol support
• Improved fat digestion
• Fat digestion and metabolism
• Triglyceride balancing
• Balancing essential fatty acids
• Break Down Fats

It is a proven fact the enzyme lipase breaks down (digests) fat. When added to your meal as a supplement it is able to do this in the digestive tract. This takes stress off the gallbladder, liver, and pancreas. When taken between meals, it will be stored in the liver and called upon as needed. Lipase is present in all of the Enzymedica Enzyme Fortifiers.

The pancreas produces about a liter and a half of digestive juices per day in an array of enzymes (protease, amylase, cellulase, lactase and lipase). Lipase is the enzyme designed to digest fats. With advancing age the body produces less and less digestive juice, about 13% less per decade of life.

For these same reasons, fat blockers such as Olean and Elestra are undesirable. They keep fat from being absorbed, but they also keep fatty nutrients from being available. Under-nutrition occurs in about half of the patients with chronic heart failure.

Fats are a major source of fuel for the heart muscle. The use of lipase has been suggested to improve fat absorption (Am J cardiology 8: 43, 1963).

It was not until 1997 that researchers found that lipase also can help to control LDL cholesterol and is helpful in stubborn cases of high triglycerides. (Lipids 32: 1147, 1997).
Lipase Deficiency

Since lipase digests fat, fat-soluble vitamins and balances fatty acids, lipase deficient people can be expected to have a tendency towards high cholesterol, high triglycerides and difficulty losing weight. Lipase deficient people also have decreased cell permeability, meaning nutrients cannot get in and the waste cannot get out.

This product contains a blend of enzymes formulated to break down mucous and reduce histamine.

The active ingredient is a potent mucolytic enzyme which has been studied for its effectiveness at reducing mucus and is combined with proteases and amylases blended to assist in overcoming the symptoms often associated with sinus and chest congestion.

MucoStop™ Mucolytic Enzyme Formula:
Break Down Mucous

Mucous is defined as the clear viscid secretion of the mucous membranes, consisting of mucin, epithelial cells and leukocytes.

Enzymes classified as proteolytic (breaks down protein) and mucolytic (breaks down mucous) are beneficial at breaking down mucous.

Proteolytic enzymes are enzymes that break down proteins. Not all proteases, however, can break down all proteins.  For example, a protease that is an effective digester of food protein will not be a good protease for mucous protein. The mucous protein requires an enzyme classified as proteolytic and mucolytic (breaks down mucous). Seaprose stands alone in this category.
Seaprose

Seaprose has at least six separate studies to support the effect it has on individuals with bronchial and sinus mucous as well as inflammatory issues. In one study it stated: "Eight days after the end of treatment with seaprose, there was still a significant beneficial effect on the viscoelasticity of mucous and a sort of "post-mucolytic effect" can be postulated.

This product is a proprietary blend containing the enzyme Nattokinase NSK-SD, which has been shown to have a high fibrinolytic activity (breaks down fibrin) and antioxidant activity.

Enzyme Nattokinase
Fibrin

Nattokinase breaks down Fibrin. Fibrin is a protein that forms in the blood after trauma or injury. This is essential to stop excess blood loss but excess fibrin has been shown to contribute to cardiovascular issues, poor circulation and slow tissue repair.

There are more than twenty enzymes in the body that assist in clotting the blood, while only one that can break the clot down (plasmin).

Bacteria, viruses, fungi and toxins present in the blood also trigger an inflammatory condition resulting in excess cross-linked Fibrin. Since there is no danger of blood loss and trauma has not occurred, this cross-linked fibrin will circulate through the blood and will stick to the walls of blood vessels.
Discovery of Thrombolytic Enzymes

Dr. Hiroyuki Sumi, M.D. (a.k.a, Dr. Natto) a researcher of the Japan Ministry of Education and majoring in the physiological chemistry at the blood laboratory of the University of Chicago, had long researched thrombolytic enzymes. He was searching for a natural agent that could successfully dissolve thrombus associated with cardiac and cerebral infarction (blood clots associated with heart attacks and stroke).
Nattokinase Proof: Blood Plasma Tests

Nattokinase has been the subject of 17 studies, including two small human trials. Researchers from JCR Pharmaceuticals, Oklahoma State University, and Miyazaki Medical College tested nattokinase on 12 healthy Japanese volunteers (6 men and 6 women, between the ages of 21 and 55).

They gave the volunteers 200 grams of natto (the food) before breakfast, then tracked fibrinolytic activity through a series of blood plasma tests.

The tests indicated that the natto generated a heightened ability to support circulation. On average, the volunteers'' ELT (a measure of how long it takes to dissolve a blood clot) dropped by 48 percent within two hours of treatment. An additional study showed a 11% decrease in blood pressure after just two weeks. 1,2,3

This product is specifically designed to raise alkalinity. Each bottle of pH-Basic™ contains pH test strips to help determine the effectiveness of the product. It contains a synergistic blend of minerals, enzymes, super-foods and herbs. It can be taken for maintenance or therapeutically to elevate your body's pH if you are finding it difficult to make an impact through diet. It also serves to enhance the efficiency of enzymes in the body (digestive and metabolic).

As a result of acid forming foods, high fat, mucous forming foods, and toxic food residues, the body becomes too acidic. The human body should be slightly alkaline in order to build an alkaline reserve for acid-forming conditions such as stress, lack of exercise, or poor dietary habits.
What is pH?

The term pH stands for "potential" of "Hydrogen". It is the amount of hydrogen ions in a particular solution. The more ions, the more acid the solution. The fewer ions the more alkaline (base) the solution.

pH is measured on a scale of 0 to 14 with seven being neutral. The lower the pH number the more acidic it is and the higher the number the more alkaline. For example, a pH of 3 is more acidic than a pH of 5 and a pH of 9 is more alkaline than a pH of 6.

As humans, a normal pH of all tissues and fluids of the body (except the stomach) is slightly alkaline. The most critical pH is in the blood. All other organs and fluids will fluctuate in their range in order to keep the blood a strict pH between 7.35 and 7.45 (slightly alkaline). This process is called homeostasis. The body makes constant adjustments in tissue and fluid pH to maintain this very narrow pH range in the blood.

To be too acidic in the body can have far reaching consequences. For example, if the blood becomes too acidic the body will balance the pH at all costs. This can lead to common symptoms which include but are not limited to heart burn, acid reflux, indigestion, weight gain, difficulty losing weight, poor metabolism, mineral deficiencies, constipation, fatigue, brain fog, frequent urination, hormonal imbalances, sore muscles and the list goes on.

Similar problems may occur if we become too alkaline, though this is much less likely. Obviously, maintaining the proper pH in the blood, digestive tract, tissues and fluids is essential in supporting optimal health.
Balance pH with Enzymes and Minerals: Component Benefits

When Enzymedica first tried to balance pH with enzymes and minerals, success was temporary. Though short term success was possible with ingredients like coral calcium, it could not be sustained. It has taken two years of research and "trial and error" to come up with what we feel is the most effective alkalinizing supplement on the market for some of the following reasons.

(They are chelated and pharmaceutical grade for safety and absorbability.)

PRO-BIO has been formulated to support healthy intestinal microflora balance. The probiotics chosen for Pro-Bio have a history of beneficial use and are manufactured in a way that guarantees potency at room temperature for twelve months.*
Features / Benefits
# Enteric Coated to Bypass and survive the stomach
# Shelf Stable. No need for refrigeration
# 5 Billion CFU / 8 Strains Higher potency / More effective
# 1 Capsule a day dose / Easy to take / Greater value

Pro-Bio contains 8 species of beneficial bacteria. Each capsule contains 5 Billion micro-organisms, which are guaranteed shelf stable for 12 months at room temperature or 24 months refrigerated. Pro-Bio is enteric coated to bypass and survive the acid environment of the stomach.*

The condition and function of the gastrointestinal tract is essential to our well being. This condition is highly dependent on the presence of intestinal microflora (bacteria). The beneficial microflora protects against the overgrowth of already present, potentially pathogenic organisms. Additionally, they produce enzymes (lactase, protease, and amylase) to complete digestion and are synergistic with enzymes in supporting the immune system. Probiotics are instrumental in protecting the host from invading bacteria and viruses. (note: Enzymes eventually “wear out” but probiotics live, colonize and create more enzymes.)*

Administration of antibiotics is the most common cause of disruption of the balance and leads to decreased resistance to colonization and to alterations in the metabolic activities of the intestinal flora. The use of probiotics may be the most natural, safe and common sense approach for keeping the balance of the intestinal ecosystem.*
Benefits of Bacillus Subtillis:
This bacterium is the source of Nattokinase, the enzyme discovered to support cardiovascular health and balance blood viscosity. It is one of the most studied strains in the world and has been shown to normalize intestinal microflora balance.*
Benefits of F19:
F19 is a member of the Lactobacillus acidophilus paracasei species. It is well tolerated by infants, adults, and the elderly, adheres to the colon and persists in the GI tract. It has also been shown to increase Lactic Acid Bacteria in the GI-Microflora after 8 weeks of consumption.*

The remaining strains are fairly common in probiotic formulations. They have been shown to promote a healthy microflora balance in the intestinal tract, improve immune function, assist digestion, remove toxins and manufacture enzymes and vitamins.*

This product contains the highest amount of proteolytic enzymes that have exhibited qualities that reduce discomfort, speed recovery, and increase circulation

Proteolytic Enzymes Increase Circulation and Speed Recovery

Capillary Blood Flow - These small blood vessels are responsible for carrying oxygen and nutrients to the cells and removing waste. After an injury some of these capillaries may be damaged, making them incapable of carrying fluid to and from the damaged tissue. The result is pain, swelling, redness, heat and loss of function. By repairing the capillaries, the bruises, swelling and pain disappear.

Proteolytic enzymes (enzymes that have the ability to break down protein) have been shown to reduce the amount of fibrin in the damaged capillary, improve circulation and speed recovery. Once in the blood stream proteolytic enzymes hydrolyze (digest) the fibrin network and enhance blood flow. Additionally, these same proteases have been known to stimulate phagocytes (cells that ingest foreign particles and debris) and accelerate elimination by way of the lymphatic system.
Protease Enzymes Supplement Studies

In a recent study, runners were given protease supplements or a placebo four times a day for three days. This consisted of 24 hours before and 48 hours after running. The participants were evaluated for mood, muscle soreness and pain threshold 24 and 48 hours after running 30 minutes at about 7 miles per hour.

The result was a decrease in soreness, improved pain threshold and no mood change with those taking the proteolytic enzymes supplements over the group who took the placebo. This is not new.

According to some sports medicine reports, there is scarcely a top athlete in Germany who is not familiar with enzyme therapy. Additionally, in Australia, athletes are provided with enzyme capsules as a precaution to aid in rapid recovery after injury. Dr. Sumi found that the sticky part of natto, commonly called "threads", exhibited a strong fibrinolytic ("blood clot busting") activity. He named the corresponding fibrinolytic enzyme "nattokinase". Dr. Sumi commented that nattokinase showed "a potency matched by no other enzyme." 1,4

V-gest is formulated with high quality amylase digestive enzymes to aid in the proper digestion of carbohydrates, protein, fats and dairy products. V-gest is ideal for vegetarians or anyone exhibiting amylase deficiency.

Amylase Digestive Enzymes that Break Down Carbohydrates V-gest contains four different types of enzymes that break down carbohydrates found in grains, seeds, legumes, vegetables and other plants. These enzymes stop gas, flatulence, bloating and discomfort from: Beans, broccoli, cabbage, onion, peppers, soy products, whole grain cereals, seeds and more.

Certain foods produce more gas than others because they contain more indigestible carbohydrates (fiber). The enzyme primarily responsible for breaking these types of carbohydrates down is known as alpha-galactosidase. V-gest contains more of this enzyme than any other Enzymedica product.

This product helps digest protein and supports immune function.

Protease is able to dissolve almost all proteins as long as they are not components of living cells. Viruses are cell parasites consisting of nucleic acids covered by a protein film. Parasites, fungal forms and bacteria are made up of protein. Virastop contains eight different proteases which can break down undigested protein, cellular debris, and toxins in the blood, sparing the immune system this task. The immune system can then concentrate its full action on the invasion.

Protease Enzyme Supplement Virastop™ recommended usage provides you with 150,000 units of activity. This formulation is used to optimize the amount of protease absorbed into the bloodstream to break down the protein invaders which are not part of the natural body. The results of Virastop™ have been seen in the blood within ten minutes after ingestion whether there was food in the stomach or not.

Virastop™ may also be taken with DIGEST™ or DIGEST GOLD™ at a meal if animal protein is eaten. DIGEST™ contains a large amount of protease however, if protein digestive problems are present and red meat remains in the diet, the following may be a safeguard to do no further harm. Take 2 Virastop™ capsules with 3 DIGEST™ or 1 DIGEST GOLD™. Virastop™ is also good for chronic constipation.

The Virastop™ formulation is based on the needs of the individual and not on the individual's size or weight. Children may safely take Virastop™. It can be taken out of the capsule and mixed with liquid for easier ingestion.

Oral proteases taken on an empty stomach have been shown to be absorbed and carried into the blood stream where they are bound to alpha 2-macroglobulin.

Several studies have indicated that oral proteases bound to the macroglobulins hydrolyze immune complexes, proteinaceous debris, damaged proteins, and acute phase plasma proteins in the blood stream.

It is suggested that oral proteases may help hydrolyze and remove extracellular proteins damaged by free radicals. This is based on the absorbability of the protease into the circulatory system, their hydrolytic activity and ability to remove proteinaceous debris in blood and extracellular fluid, and their susceptibility due to their unfolding and other conformational modifications from their native state.
Contraindications

If at anytime you feel discomfort, take 2 capsules of ACID SOOTHE™. For support, continue to take ACID SOOTHE™ with your Virastop™ or DIGEST™ with meals and when needed.
