Practitioners often ask us, “What should I look for when choosing enzyme products for my practice?” This blog aims to succinctly answer that question, but first encourages you to identify the concerns you most frequently encounter. Are your clients concerned with gut health and digestive challenges? Or are they concerned with maintaining heart health, cognitive function, or something different altogether? The answers to these questions hold the keys to deciding which enzyme formulas best suit your practice and patients’ needs.
While structural issues may be causative factors in your patients’ health status, enzymes can still play valuable roles in their lives. Whether they’re experiencing microflora imbalance, gut motility issues, occasional heartburn or acid indigestion, food cravings, food intolerances, immune system challenges, joint concerns, cardiovascular/circulatory matters, or are interested in healthy stem cell renewal, Enzyme Science has a product and protocol for you.
All Enzyme Science formulas contain pure, vegetarian enzymes with supportive functional ingredients but never contain any GMOs, colors, fillers, binders, excipients, or common allergens. The purity of Enzyme Science products inherently enhances the safety of enzyme therapy. All Enzyme Science formulas contain Thera-blend™ enzymes, which are designed to perform along the entire length of the gastrointestinal tract, in acid, neutral, and alkaline environments. This process allows Enzyme Science formulas to break more bonds and function over a broader pH range, ensuring maximum efficacy.*
To determine which product would be a best fit, refer to the quick reference chart below for fast assessment of our enzyme supplementation/support options:

Enzyme Science exceeds FDA requirements for Good Manufacturing Practices by voluntarily becoming certified by NSF International (GMP Certified). NSF is a third party GMP auditing and compliance company that is well known for having the highest standards of GMP Certification. The result of this additional audit is superior manufacturing standards.
A History of Expertise
Enzyme Science™ has defined purity by ensuring that all raw materials used in production are from the highest quality and purest sources available. Enzyme Science™ has spared no expense to ensure that their formulas never contain fillers or excipients, nor utilize flow agents in their production.
