Eniva® Digest-EZ ® is a digestive supplement that has been formulated to aid the body’s natural process of digestion. Its combination of broad spectrum digestive enzymes, herbal components, activating alfalfa nutrients and the metabolic enzyme Catalase provide a scientifically balanced formula that aids in healthy digestion and overall body health.*
• Proper digestion*
• Immune system effectiveness*
• Naturally addressing allergens in the body*
• Circulation, energy levels*
• the normal process of breaking down fats, contributing toward weight management*
• Proper elimination and regularity*
Digestive enzyme supplements have become the most vital nutritional discovery since vitamins and minerals. All of the processes of life depend on enzymes, which are involved in the function of every system in our bodies. Where there are no enzymes, there is no life.
Enzymes function in every physiological process that occurs in the human body. Specifically, the body requires enzymes to properly use the nutrients provided in food and supplementation to support overall health.* If proper enzyme levels are not present, many vital nutrients will be unable to be used by the body.
Most degenerative diseases are furthered by a lack of enzymes. In addition, digestive complications are the number one cause for hospitalization in America! A wealth of enzymes in the body is an additional assurance your body will function at its best, with vibrant energy, comfortable digestion, and a healthy immune system.
Digest-EZ Formulation Features:
• High-activity, full pH range digestive enzymes
• Synergistic herbal components to aid digestion and stabilize enzymes*
• Enzyme-activating nutrients from Alfalfa
• Scientifically formulated to support digestive thresholds*
• Presence of Catalase to ease the metabolic stress of digestion*
Understanding the Science
• High-Potency and Broad pH Range Activity
The pH range of the stomach varies with digestion. As such, it is important to consume digestive enzymes that cover a broad range of pH levels. If an enzyme is not in its appropriate pH range, it will not be active.
• Herbal Blend With Ginger and Alfalfa
It is well known that ginger helps to aid digestion and provides a soothing effect on the stomach. In addition, alfalfa is known to possess multiple nutrients that help activate digestive enzymes.
• Contains Bromelain and Papain
Bromelain and Papain are well recognized in the sports arena as powerful mediators for joint health and as influencers of cells associated with inflammation. The majority of enzyme formulas contain little, if any, of these powerful body mediators.
• Formulated to Meet Digestive Thresholds
Many digestive formulas are designed with only a minimal amount of enzymes. Unfortunately, this design does little to help support healthy digestion. Digest-EZ contains high dose enzymes to truly have an impact on the digestive process.
• Contains Catalase
It is no question the Standard American Diet (S.A.D.) is a stress on the body. In fact, digestive-associated complications are the number one reason for hospitalizations in America. Catalase is a metabolic enzyme that deals with free radical damage in the body. It has been included in this formula to help alleviate some of the metabolic stress associated with digestion.*
• Eniva Follows National Standards
We follow the standard evaluation of activity and potency of enzymes - HUT for Protease, SKB for Amylase and LU or FIP for Lipase... We are proud that our enzyme product has the correct FCC labeling. This labeling certifies that the enzymes have been thoroughly tested for activity and potency.
• Can also be Taken Between Meals
Digest-EZ enzymes are designed to not only be taken with meals for digestive aid, but also in between meals to promote overall body health. By taking this product between meals, on an empty stomach, the enzyme energy is absorbed into the bloodstream to undo some of the damage caused by a diet high in processed foods or other enzymeless foods.*
• Highest Quality Plant Compounds
Our Digest-EZ contains only the highest quality plant enzymes that are totally non-toxic and animal free.
Frequently Asked Questions about Enzymes
What are enzymes? Enzymes are energized protein molecules, originated from acids. They are formed only from organic, living matter, and catalyze as well as regulate nearly all functions within the human body. Enzymes digest all our food, and make it small enough to pass through the pores of the intestine into the blood. They turn the food we eat into energy and unlock the energy throughout the body. Coenzymes, which come from essential vitamins and minerals, are needed for enzymes to function properly. In other words, enzymes need trace minerals in order to be activated. When the activation process occurs, the particles within the enzymes become charged. This "charge" works similar to electricity, and allows the body to transmit critical messages from one cell to another.
Where do we get enzymes? Enzymes come from two sources - one being endogenous, those that originate from within bodies. The other is exogenous, or those that we consume from outside our bodies. A good supplement will have substantial amounts of three exogenous enzymes - protease, amylase and lipase. Protease digests proteins, amylase digests carbohydrates and lipase digests fats.
How do enzymes aid in digestion? Ensuring that food is fully and properly digested is one of the main keys to the human body functioning properly. Major problems in the bloodstream, intestines and colon can result from undigested food. The body can function properly if the food we are eating is being digested properly. On the contrary, it is impossible for the body to function properly if we are not digesting our food properly. A quality digestive enzyme product will suppot the digestion of raw or cooked food. It is important to remember that enzymes are energy and when we take enzymes regularly with food, we actually use the energy in the enzymes to aid in digestion. This will conserve the body's energy for more important tasks like protecting or repairing. Without an effective digestive enzyme, the body may use up to 50% or more of its energy while trying to digest food.
What about enzymes and aging? Enzymes can support the aging process by facilitating blood supply to the skin. Good circulation brings nutrients to the skin and helps eliminate the waste products that can make the skin look dull and wrinkled.
How do enzymes work with toxins? When eating cooked and processed foods over a long period of time, we are eliminating the healthy enzymes that naturally existed in the raw food. Continual consumption of these types of foods exhausts the digestive organs until they can no longer function properly. By middle age, a person may have pounds of undigested putrefactive food in their colon. The toxins produce buildup which can compromise the immune system, and cause the body to go out of balance. Healthy cellular replication in the Colon is one of the most prevalent health challenges in the United States. Enzymes act as scavengers in the blood and lymph. When cooked or processed food enters the body, the enzymes work to keep the body strong in the face of pathogens introduced into the digestive system by that food.
How Do We Know We Are Enzyme Deficient?
Here are topics associated with specific enzymes:
• Protease (digests proteins): Blood sugar, kidneys, water retention, immune function, bacterial and viral complications, cellular replication, calmness, appendix, bones, and joints*
• Amylase (digests carbohydrates): Skin, liver, and gallbladder*
• Lipase (digests fats): Cholesterol, blood sugar, heart/cardiovascular system, weight, blood pressure, colon, energy, and balance*
• Cellulase (digests fiber): Gas, allergens, facial relaxation, and candida/yeast*
• Sucrase (digests sugars): Lungs, breathing, calmness, mood swings, sleep, stool, and balance*
Can enzymes address health concerns? We know that only the human body has the ability to heal itself, but even the amazing human body needs help. In order for the human body to work correctly, you must support your body daily with vitamins, ionic minerals and digestive enzymes. Also, eat as many raw foods as possible (they are much better for you than cooked foods).
Digestive problems are generally a sure sign of the body being out of balance. An evaluation of your stool is often a worthwhile exercise. When your stool sinks it is heavy because there are still nutrients or undigested foods within it. It also shows a problem digesting food properly. When the nutrients within the food are completely digested, the stool will be light, fluffy, and will float. The stool will also be absent of foul odor. With enzymes, most people will see their stool float within a couple of weeks to a month.
Aren't animal enzymes just as effective? Enzymes from animals like trypsin, pepsin and pancreatin work in a very narrow pH range and to a limited degree in the stomach and small intestines. Unfortunately, they don't aid at all in digestion that occurs in the upper part of the stomach. When the stomach's pH is too high, they are inactive.
Why can't I just get enzymes from raw foods I eat? The food enzymes within raw foods don't have the potency of digestive enzymes, especially in protease and lipase. This potency along with high activity is why a digestive enzyme supplement is such a great aid to the human body. It would take many pounds of fresh foods to equal one dose of digestive enzymes.
What is the correct dosage of enzymes? We recommend you take 6-9 capsules of Eniva Enzymes a day. Anything less may not give your body the digestive assistance it needs. We suggest taking 2 capsules with every meal.
Is it ok to take enzymes before you eat? No. Enzymes are meant to help you digest the food you eat. It is best to take the enzymes during or immediately after the meal.
How quickly can results be seen? Most people having mild indigestion, bloating, or problems with digestion will usually see immediate results. People with normal irregularity will usually see improvement within a week or two. People report seeing increased energy within a couple of weeks to a month. Almost everyone will see results within 3 months. The people who see the best results are people that continue to take digestive enzymes daily with food and on an empty stomach.
What if I have a very sensitive stomach? If you know your body is sensitive to most supplements, begin slowly with the enzymes. You might want to just take them with meals for a week or so, to allow your body to adjust to the product.
Can enzymes help my weight problem? Yes. Many people who are overweight are low on lipase within the body. The correct amount of lipase will help many people with digestion, assisting with blood and weight problems.
Can I take digestive enzymes if I am taking medications or prescriptions? Yes. The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) classifies digestive enzymes as a food. If, for some reason, your doctor has told you not to eat food while taking medication, then avoid digestive enzymes.
