Cellulase is a fiber specific digestive enzyme. Its primary function is to digest cellulose, an abundant compound found in the cell walls of all plant foods and an important building block in the plant kingdom. However, we as humans cannot digest cellulose because we don't produce the enzyme. Taking a cellulase enzyme may improve the nutritive value of certain foods like fruits, vegetables, and grains. It also turns some of cellulose into usable energy for our cells.
Natural digestive enzymes are remarkably beneficial biological catalysts. They help us properly digest all the food we eat to liberate the nutrients needed for our optimal health and well-being. Different enzymes are needed to help us digest each of the diverse types of food compounds. Think of it as locks and keys—you need the right keys (enzymes) to fit into the dozens of different locks (food compounds that we eat every day) to open the doors for optimal, healthy digestion.
Our special cellulase digestive enzyme is naturally grown and fermented with a high potency of 3,250 CU per capsule. All of our digestive enzymes are non-GMO, kosher, and highly purified. They are also free from preservatives and chemicals, and 100% vegetarian with absolutely no animal-based ingredients.
