Enzymes vs. Animal-based enzymes
by Lisa Helffrich, RD
of the most notable characteristics between Enzyme Essentials’ enzyme
products and many other supplemental oral enzyme products currently on
the market is the source of the enzymes. Enzyme Essentials’ enzymes
are mycelial-derived (fungal) or commonly referred to as “plant-based
enzymes ” as opposed to being pancreatic which are derived from
the pancreas of an animal.Enzymes derived from animals, or pancreatic
enzymes, present the same possible contaminants that other non-organic,
genetically modified animal by-products do.
pancreatic enzymes are limited in where they work in
the digestive tract. They cannot withstand the low pH in the stomach and
therefore require an enteric coating if they are to pass through the stomach
and remain active. The enteric coating is often made using ingredients
such as waxes, shellac, and plastics something Enzyme Essentials prefers
to avoid. This coating also means the pancreatic enzymes are not available
to support digestion until they reach the small intestines. Enzyme Essentials’
digestive enzymes are plant based, pH stable, GMO-free, do not require
an enteric coating and we blend the formulas to ensure digestive support
throughout the entire digestive system. Plant based enzyme
supplements are the better choice for overall digestive support.
