Pectinase is a digestive enzyme specific for breaking down pectin, a type of soluble fiber especially prevalent in fruits and vegetables. Plants produce pectinase enzyme to help soften and ripen fruits, making them more edible. When taken as an enzyme supplement, pectinase increases the nutritive value and prebiotic potential of plant-based foods.
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 pectinase digestive enzyme is naturally grown and fermented with a high potency of 50 Endo-PGU 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.
