Protease is a digestive enzyme specific for digesting complex proteins found in many types of foods (meat, fish, nuts, dairy, legumes). Proteases hydrolyze, or break down, protein into smaller polypeptides and free amino acids for optimal digestion and absorption. When taken on an empty stomach, protease can also help to neutralize inflammatory compounds in our bodies to support a healthy inflammation response—for our joints, cardiovascular system, and more.
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 protease digestive enzyme is naturally grown and fermented with a high potency of 100,000 HUT/100,000 PC 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.
