Why Digestive Enzymes are Key for Supporting Good Health

For complete health, our bodies rely on a full spectrum of digestive enzymes. Enzymes are at work in our saliva and throughout our digestive tract, breaking down food into usable nutrients that are essential for wellness.

We produce some of these enzymes naturally, but as we age, production of natural digestive enzymes decreases. Even with a healthy diet, it can be difficult to fill that gap with enzymes obtained through food. Many foods are largely enzyme-deficient, and any type of processing, preserving, or heat destroys many of the enzymes that are there.

Without sufficient enzymes, our digestion can be less than optimal. Gut microbes compensate by completing the work of digestion in the intestines, but that bacterial digestion produces more gas, bloating, difficulty with elimination, odor, and occasional discomfort.

The role of these enzymes doesn’t end with digestion. We need enzymes to make use of the vitamins, minerals, fats, proteins, and carbohydrates in our food. Digestive enzymes make it possible to absorb and activate nutrients.

How Active Enzymes Works

Active Enzymes includes a full spectrum of plant-based enzymes for optimal breakdown of food and absorption of nutrients.

Each of these enzymes has a specialized function. Some break down proteins, while others target fats, carbohydrates, fibers, or phytic acid (a compound found in plant foods).

Taking Active Enzymes on a regular basis can help promote natural enzyme levels and optimal digestive function. It also supports a healthy balance of microbes in the GI tract. The result is more energy, better overall health, and greater digestive comfort.

Active Enzymes also includes cardamom and fennel, which both support normal emptying of the stomach and movement of food through the GI tract.*

For best results, you should take Active Enzymes in combination with a diet that is high in vegetables and low in processed foods and added sugars.

"The Active Enzymes have been a great addition to my pursuit of health. I highly recommend them."

Our Plant-Based Enzyme Formula

Acid Stable Protease

Protease is a digestive enzyme that supports the optimal breakdown of dietary proteins. The acid stable protease in Active Enzymes is formulated to withstand the acidic, low-pH environment of the stomach.*

Other protease enzymes included in this formula: Serratia, Peptidase, Papain, Bromelain


Amylase is a digestive enzyme that converts carbohydrates into usable energy and promotes complete digestion of starches.*

Complementary enzymes in this formula: Glucoamylase, Maltase, Invertase


This enzyme breaks down specific types of carbohydrates found in plant foods that can be difficult to digest, particularly those in legumes and cruciferous vegetables, including cauliflower, cabbage, and broccoli. When you have enough alpha-galactosidase, you can enjoy the health benefits of these nutritious foods.*


Lipase is a digestive enzyme that breaks down and enables absorption of fats and oils. Lipase also helps maintain levels of cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood that are already within the normal range, which is important for heart health.*


Lactase is a digestive enzyme that breaks down lactose, a sugar in dairy products. Adding lactase to your supplement regime can help if you have difficulty digesting lactose.*

Another lactose-targeting enzyme in this formula: Beta-D-Galactosidase.


Cellulase is a digestive enzyme that helps break down the fibers in plant foods and balance good gut bacteria.*


Phytase breaks down phytic acid in grains and seeds, converting it to phosphate and releasing essential minerals.*


Phytochemicals in cardamom seeds may soothe the intestinal tract and promote healthy gut bacteria.*


Fennel seeds relax smooth muscles, including those along the GI tract, and stimulate the flow of bile to aid in digestion.*

I take the Active Enzymes about 15 minutes after the Gut Balance, usually with my morning cup of coffee or tea. In another 15 minutes I am ready for breakfast and a positive day! These formulas work well but are much more gentle than other similar products I have tried.
