These plant enzymes assist in the normal digestive processes necessary to extract vital nutrients from our diet. Often a pancreatic insufficiency limits the optimal utilization of essential vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. Ideally, food should be completely broken down to assure that macromolecules do not pass into the system. Plant enzymes work in various pH environments, increasing their effectiveness along the gastrointestinal tract.
