The enzyme power of NuZymes, only better! You’ve likely heard of enzymes and already know they are important for your digestion. But you may not know just how necessary enzymes are to every cell in your body—not just for digestion, but for all your physiological processes. Enzymes are your body’s workers. They are responsible for energy production, fighting infections and healing wounds, reducing inflammation, carrying away toxic waste and slowing the aging process. When you were young, you had an abundant supply of enzymes and energy. You felt great with enzymes to spare, which kept your body running efficiently.
Over time, you begin to lose that efficiency. You might not notice right away, but eventually you’ll realize you’re less able to eat some of the foods you love or are less able to recover as quickly from the aches and pains of weekend activities. This reduced digestive ability, vitality and stamina can signal an enzyme deficiency, specifically a protease deficiency.
Protease is the digestive enzyme needed to digest protein. Proteolytic enzymes break down the peptide bonds in protein to free the amino acids needed by your body. Additionally, these enzymes have been used in a variety of therapies based on studies indicating their benefits in oncology, inflammatory conditions and immune regulation. The following is a list of some possible health benefits of supplementing with protease:
- May improve symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease
- Helps repair cellular damage of stomach ulcers
- Could reduce osteoarthritis discomfort
- Encourages good digestive health
- May decrease gastric discomfort and gas
NuZymes Plus offers all the enzyme benefits of NuZymes, but with the addition of multiple enzymes, including Alpha-galactosidase, known to alleviate gastric discomfort and gas. Combining different proteases from a variety of sources provides a much broader range of digestive capability. NuZymes Plus also has dramatically increased lipase levels, which is especially helpful in the digestion of dietary fats. If you like NuZymes, you’ll love NuZymes Plus!
