A High Performance Broad Spectrum Digestive Formula
Ultra-Enzyme Support ® may be the most complete way to support your body on an
enzymatic level. This formula is a high performance, broad-spectrum vegetarian
digestive enzyme with 17 different digestive enzymes. Using the highest quality
vegetarian enzymes and mineral cofactors it provides support on many levels.
Many digestive enzyme products use pancreatin, trypsin and chymotrypsin, which are
harvested by juicing the organs of cow and pig cadavers in slaughter houses. These animal based enzymes can
encourage dependency and only work in a very narrow Ph range and are often destroyed in the stomach. This formula
uses only vegetarian enzymes and is manufactured under the strictest standards for optimal function of the digestive
It’s no secret that as we age it becomes harder to enjoy a meal without suffering from some type of digestive discomfort.
The reason is that every 10 years of life the pancreas produces fewer digestive enzymes. In addition, our modern diets
are largely void of natural plant enzymes and we eat less and less raw food. This overall lack of enzymes causes the
body to work harder, putting a strain on our internal organs and digestive system. This results in symptoms as minor as
heartburn and bloating but can lead to more serious issues
Ultra-Enzyme Support ® also includes enzyme activating mineral co-factors like calcium, magnesium, manganese,
copper, chromium, potassium and zinc. This special proprietary blend of chelated minerals has been included to help
maximize the performance of this enzyme formula.
L.E.A.D.S. ® - like all of NWC's products Ultra-Enzyme
Support® contains our exclusive L.E.A.D.S. ® Live
Enzyme Activated Delivery System®. It is NWC's
delivery system that guarantees assimilation and
utilization of the nutrients at the cellular level.
L.E.A.D.S. ® is a proprietary system of adding a blend
of select enzymes to botanical and whole-food products
for the purpose of improving the release and absorption
of nutrients contained in these products. This special
blend of supplemental enzymes works to extract the
nutrients from the formula in the most bioavailable form
so the body can use them easily and efficiently. The
L.E.A.D.S. ® enzyme delivery system is formulated to
match the specific needs of each individual product
made by Natural Wellness Centers of America Inc. and
is based on a unique and proprietary method. It is
especially beneficial with products providing a wholefood
source of vitamins and minerals.
Protease - proteases refers to a group of enzymes
whose function is to break down proteins; they’re also
referred to as proteolytic enzymes or proteinases. The
proteins are broken down to their basic building blocks -
amino acids. In order to have the amino acids available
to the body, these enzymes have to break down the
proteins to free them; this important enzymatic
compound is the key to digestive health. This formula
contains four different proteases.
Peptidase - Peptidase contains a very high level of
exo-peptidase activity and is able to provide a high
degree of protein hydrolysis breaking down peptides
completely into amino acids. Peptidase works
synergistically with endogenous enzymes to provide
protein digestion throughout the entire digestive tract.
Scientific evidence suggests that proteolytic enzymes,
such as peptidase, can be useful supplements for
digestive support, immune support, cardiovascular
support and general nutritional support.
Amylase - amylase refers to a group of enzymes that
break down sugars and starches. They are required to
digest carbohydrates (polysaccharides) into smaller
units (disaccharides), and then, eventually converting
them into even smaller units (monosaccharide), such
Alpha-Galactosidase - this enzyme breaks down carbohydrates, such as raffinose, stachyose and
verbascose. It can help prevent gas and other gastrointestinal symptoms that occur after eating a high-fiber
diet of beans and grains.
Malt Diastase - or maltase is an enzyme that is the catalyst in the hydrolysis of disaccharide maltose to the
simple sugar form – glucose. When starch is eaten, it is partially digested and transformed to maltose by
both the saliva enzymes and pancreatic enzymes called amylases. The maltase secreted in the intestines,
converts this maltose into glucose, where it’s ready to be used or can be stored in the liver for future use.
Lipase - is the enzyme required to break down fats and lipids. In order for fat to be digested properly, the
liver starts the process by emulsifying the large fat molecules. Then bile breaks the fat down to small
droplets, allowing the lipase to start its work.
Lactase - lactase is required to break down lactose (a primary sugar found in mammalian milk) and is
produced in the small intestine, which breaks lactose into two simpler sugars. It is required for the digestion
of milk and milk products.
Glucoamylase - is used to breakdown carbohydrates, specifically polysaccharides.
Invertase - this enzyme breaks down carbohydrates, especially sucrose.
Pectinase - breaks down carbohydrates, specifically pectin in fruits, such as apples.
Phytase - breaks down carbohydrates, specifically phytates in plants. It can increase mineral absorption and the bioavailability of iron, zinc, calcium and magnesium.
Hemicellulase - is used to breakdown carbohydrates, especially polysaccharides such as hemi-celluloses,
which are found in plant foods.
Cellulase - breaks down cellulose, an indigestible fiber found in many fruits and vegetables.
There are many advantages of using supplemental vegetarian enzymes as opposed to animal derived
enzymes. Fermented enzymes have been used in foods for centuries. Microbial enzymes have been
specially selected on the basis of each enzyme's unique characteristics. Fermented enzymes exhibit broad
ranges of pH, temperature and substrate specificities. Supplemental microbial enzymes are chosen on their
ability to work within the gastrointestinal system of mammals.
Specially selected for compatibility with the body's temperature, microbial enzymes also exhibit activity across
a broad pH range. Unlike supplemental enzymes of animal origin, microbial enzymes work at the pH found in
the upper stomach. Food sits in the upper portion of the stomach for as long as an hour before gastric
secretions begins action.
Several studies conducted at major universities have shown that the enzymes in
saliva continue their digestive activity in the upper stomach and can digest up to 30% of the ingested protein,
60% of ingested starch and 10% of ingested fat during the first 30 to 60 minutes after consumption. Although
salivary enzymes accomplish a significant amount of digestion, their activity is limited to a pH level above 5.0.
Supplemental microbial enzymes are active in the pH range of 3.0 to 9.0 and can facilitate the utilization of a
much larger amount of protein, carbohydrates and fat before hydrochloride is secreted in sufficient amounts
to neutralize their activity.
In contrast, supplemental enzymes of animal origin are destroyed by the low pH
within the stomach unless they are enterically coated. Yet, this coating can prevent the dissolution of the
enzymes and prevent any digestive benefit. Studies have shown that non-enteric coated products can be more effective than coated products. Furthermore, animal-based enzymes function only at the narrow pH
ranges found at specific anatomical sites.
Pepsin is only active in the highly acidic environment of the active
stomach. Pancreatin, trypsin and chymotrypsin are only active in the alkalinity of the duodenum.
Supplemental microbial enzymes exhibit activity throughout the entire digestive process. Therefore, microbial
enzymes can play a significant role in improving food nutrient utilization.
Another advantage of microbial enzymes is the variety of enzymes available for supplementation. While
pancreatin offers only protease, lipase and amylase activities, microbial enzymes offer protease, peptidase,
lipase, amylase, glucoamylase, invertase, malt diastase, lactase, alpha-galactosidase, cellulase,
hemicellulase, pectinase and phytase activities. Pancreatin is a pre-defined blend and the only alternatives
are proportional increases in total activity that may not be necessary.
Customization and flexibility to match
the appropriate enzymes to the diet is another strength of supplemental microbial enzymes. Plus, microbial
enzymes are animal-friendly as they are vegetarian and cruelty-free.
