Advanced Digestive Enzyme is a broad combination of vegetarian digestive enzymes to assist in fat, carbohydrate and protein digestion. This formula is designed specifically to support digestion for people who eat the typical modern diet, which is high in protein, fat and refined carbohydrates. It contains a proprietary blend of enzymes specifically designed to aid the digestion of these nutrient dense meals. Raw foods such as fruits and vegetables are excellent sources of enzymes, but these enzymes are destroyed when the food is processed, canned, or cooked. The modern diet consists of predominantly enzyme deficient cooked foods. Supplementation with enzymes helps to replace those lost in cooking, and enhances the enzymes found in raw foods.
Lifestream Advanced Digestive Enzymes contains a blend of proteolytic, lipolytic & carbohydrolytic enzymes to assist the digestion of protein, fat and carbohydrates.
Protease 4.5 is a mixture of proteases that work synergistically with endogenous enzymes to provide protein digestion in the stomach and small intestine. Papain and Bromelain – assist protein digestion to provide amino acids which are used to build muscles, metabolic enzymes, neurotransmitters and many other essential biochemicals. Lipase has broad substrate specificity on the fats and oils of vegetable and animal origins. Amylase, tilactase and cellulase are carbohydrate enzymes which assist in the digestion of starch, lactose and cellulose allowing for a more complete digestion of carbohydrates consumed.
Many Enzyme formulas available today contain animal-derived enzymes, Lifestream Advanced Digestive Enzymes contain no animal derived enzymes. Instead the enzymes are sourced from microbial and plant sources – exhibiting better effectiveness over a broader pH range. Compared to competing enzyme formulas, ours is a potent, broad spectrum, high quality (manufactured to TGA GMP standard) product.

Can enzymes be taken with other prescription medications?
Digestive enzymes function by breaking down specific chemical bonds in foods. In most cases digestive enzymes can therefore safely be taken with medications, however it is best to separate the medications and the enzyme supplement by more than 2 hours.
One area of caution is with prescription blood thinning agents. If you are on this type of medication, you should consult with your healthcare practitioner before beginning an enzyme regimen.
Gastric Ulcers. All protein digesting enzymes can irritate existing ulcers and should be avoided by those with stomach or intestinal ulcers.
Pregnancy and nursing. As a general precaution, if you are pregnant or nursing, consult with a professional before use.
