Supplementation with plant enzymes, which will work in a broader pH range than pancreatic enzymes, will help digest your food, lessening the work of your digestive system and relieving some of the stress on your digestive organs. 1 Supplemental enzymes work in a wide pH range (3.0 to 9.0) and they can be used to digest food in the stomach. Plant or food enzymes are vacuumed off plants and various yeast and fungi, such as Aspergillus niger and Rhizopus oryzae. None of the fungal material is left when the enzymes are processed and filtered. The purified enzyme material is then mixed with the appropriate herbs or whole food complexes.
All of our enzymes are guaranteed to work according to Dr. Loomis’ specifications. Despite marketing rhetoric about potency, there is no industry standardization of enzyme activity levels at this time, though efforts are being made to do so. For example, some companies use FCC units, another AUs, and still another will create their own units. Because of this, there is no way to compare one brand to another for strength, potency, or concentration, unless it is done by laboratory analysis. Furthermore, enzyme potency cannot be tested if herbs or other plant material have been added, as the added material can contain the same type of enzymes as are in the product. To avoid the confusion of activity levels, we label our products according to weight, which is how raw material is ordered directly from suppliers. Above all else, Dr. Loomis formulates his products so that the enzymes and herbal ingredients of each product are matched to the body’s nutritional requirements.
You will find our enzyme supplements to be of superior quality. Today, the experts in the enzyme field—Associates of Dr. Loomis and graduates of the Loomis Institute 2 —know that higher numbers don’t always mean better products. Buy the very best if you want to get the very best results.
Why Use Herbs and Whole Food Complexes with Enzymes?
The herbs are analyzed for protein, carbohydrates, fats, and fiber, and appropriate enzymes are added to the encapsulation to ensure proper assimilation. Nutrients are then delivered, past an incompetent digestive system, and the body is nourished. This is the original concept on which Dr. Loomis founded Enzyme Formulations, Inc.
