• Supplements the body's production of important enzymes.
• Provides a blend of enzymes to digest proteins, carbohydrates and fats.
• Provides hydrochloric acid and bile salts to help digest proteins and fats.
• Helps prevent or relieve occasional indigestion.
All foods must be processed to extract nutrients, and enzymes are able to change food compounds into more simple forms at an amazingly rapid rate. Scientists have discovered about 5,000 different enzymes, but they think more than 20,000 may exist. Each specific enzyme configuration can only control a single reaction in the body. That's why taking enzyme supplements that lack the ones you need won't help.
Nature's Sunshine isolated those enzymes that are most needed by the body, especially as aging shrinks enzyme-making capacity. A common problem is eating over-processed foods that lack enzymes, thereby adding an enzyme manufacturing burden to the digestive organs. Nature's Sunshine Food Enzymes formulation is designed to provide major enzymes commonly needed for today's American diet.
Betaine hydrochloride (HCl) adds to the stomach's natural acidity for digesting proteins.
Bile salt is included to supplement the secretion of the gall bladder, helping to emulsify fats (i.e., make them water soluble).
Bromelain has a wide range of effects besides digestion of proteins. Among other important benefits, it counteracts inflammation internally and externally, helps remove dead tissue from burns, prevents excessive swelling, relaxes smooth muscles, and helps prevent unnecessary blood clotting.
Lipase further processes fats.
Alpha Amylase digests starches.
Pancreatin further digests proteins, carbohydrates and fats in a alkaline environment within the small intestine.
Papain digests protein.
Pepsin is used for the predigestion of proteins.
Each tablet of Food Enzymes supplies

Acid Reflux & Weight Loss - "I am so thrilled with my success using Food Enzymes, Stomach Comfort and HSN-W. I've been using Food Enzymes religiously for about a month. This week, for the first time since I started Food Enzymes, I decided not to take my daily Prevacid tablet (I've had horrible Reflux Disease for six years). I haven't taken any Prevacid for 4 days and I'm FINE! No reflux. A little belching, but nothing like I usually experience when I stop my medication. This is a MIRACLE! I truly believe that if I continue taking the Food Enzymes, I'll never have to take Prevacid again! HSN-W is already making a difference in my skin and hair. I also noticed I've been losing weight. That's why I just ordered SF and Dieter's Cleanse. I want to cleanse my system, lose weight, and GET HEALTHY. Along with this, I have been reading "Healing In His Wings." It is changing my life! Thank you for being my angel. This is all because of you ... and God!" Joanne
Appetite & Weight Loss - "After only one day of FOOD ENZYMES , I can't believe how much better I feel. I have desired so much less food today. I had a couple slices of toast for lunch and was totally satisfied. I made bread pudding today and had a small amount for supper and am not hungry at all. No burping either! So, it seems I've hit upon something to cut my appetite so I can eat less and assimilate it better, which should get some of this weight off. Thanks for explaining the connection between digesting food and cutting appetite." R.S.
Digestive Problems - "My grandmother came to visit from Panama. She was having problems with digestion. The first night she was here, she complained of discomfort after eating, so I gave her some Food Enzymes . In less than an hour, she came to me and asked what it was that worked so well. She continued to take them with meals while she was here and I ordered some for her to take back. Within a month, she said that a lot of other problems had cleared up. Her heartburn problem was gone. She regularly had constipation or diarrhea and that had balanced out fine. In other words, she loves the Food Enzymes. She thought she had to live with these problems for the rest of her life, but has now learned that digesting your food properly relates to many areas of health." Giselle A
