Protein is digested by protease

Protease deficiencies:

  • Adversely affect the immune system making the body susceptible to bacterial, viral, and yeast infections.
  • Contribute to low blood sugar. “Since about half the protein you eat is converted to sugar, inadequate protein digestion leads to low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)”. This causes anxiety, decreased ability to concentrate, depression, irritability, moodiness, and poor memory.
  • Undigested proteins putrefy in the intestine and become toxic. These toxins can be reabsorbed through the intestinal wall (auto-intoxication).


Taking protease digestive enzymes with your meal will help you digest protein. Taking protease between meals, on an empty stomach, will help boost the immune system, elevate moods and help the liver to detoxify.

Carbohydrates are Digested by Amylase

  • Excessive carbohydrate consumption can result in amylase deficiencies.
  • Amylase is important in preventing the proliferation of dead leukocytes, (white blood cells) which manifest as pus. This causes skin problems such as: eczema, herpes, hives, psoriasis, and rashes.
  • Amylase has antiviral properties; therefore deficiencies would make one more susceptible to viral infections.
  • Lack of amylase contributes to joint stiffness, muscle pains, exercise induced asthma, and tender points.
  • Amaylase also helps clear the lungs of congestions.


Amylase taken with carbohydrate meals helps to digest the carbohydrates. When taken between meals, on an empty stomach, they will target virus infections and improve joint and muscle function.

Fats are Digested by Lipase

  • Lipase has the ability to digest the protective outer coatings of viruses. Deficiencies of lipase permit viruses to proliferate causing characteristic signs of viral infections such as: colds, flu, infections, sore throat, and swollen glands, which results in fatigue.
  • Irritable bowel syndrome can result from lipase deficiencies.
  • Cardiovascular problems result from poor fat metabolism such as: arteriosclerosis, cataracts, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and obesity.


Lipase taken with the meal helps digest fats, taken between meals ait will help the antiviral activity of the immune system and help promote optimum cardiovascular health.

Fiber is Digested by Cellulose

  • Cellulose is capable of digesting yeast. If yeast is not kept in check a myriad of symptoms associated with yeast infections manifest.
  • Candida (yeast) eats its way through the lining of the intestinal wall, allowing undigested foods to leak through the gut into the bloodstream. These particles are toxic to the body and can provoke allergic type reactions.
  • Other symptoms of cellulose deficiency are: bloating, facial pain, and gas.


Cellulose taken with meals will help to digest the fiber content; taken between meals it is good for the treatment of candida. When we add cellulose digestive enzymes to the treatment protocol for candida we always get much better results
