AquaSource Enzymes + Algae

The AquaSource Klamath Lake algae are very rich in metabolic enzymes – about 2000 types. Added to this are the digestive enzymes protease, amylase, lipase, lactase, bromelain and papain.

AquaSource Enzymes + Algae is designed to help with the breakdown of food if they are taken at the start of a meal. The capsules may be opened and contents sprinkled over the food, so long as the food is not hot.

The AquaSource enzymes provide sufficient quantities of the usual digestive enzymes, necessary for absorbing the different foods:

  • Protease is required for protein digestion
  • Bromelain and papain, from pineapple and papaya, are also for protein digestion, as well as having natural anti-inflammatory action
  • Amylase is required for carbohydrates digestion.
  • Lipase is for fats.
  • Lactase is for the lactose (milk sugar) in dairy products.

AquaSource enzymes are all from plant sources and are suitable for vegetarians.

The role of the digestive system is to digest and absorb nutrients taken in as food, and unless it does this efficiently, optimum health is unlikely, however good the diet is. Enzymes must first break down the food consumed, into its component molecules ready for absorption in the small intestine. The efficient breakdown of food is essential to release vital nutrients. These nutrients must then be absorbed through often quite complex biochemical processes, which transport the nutrient molecules across the gut wall.

If food is not digested properly it passes into the large bowel where it is fermented by bacteria causing wind and bloating.

Over a lifetime, no less than 100 tons of food passes along the digestive tract and 300,000 litres of digestive juices are produced by the body to break it down. The digestive tract itself has high nutrient needs because of its high turnover of epithelial cells and synthesis and secretion of digestive enzymes.

AquaSource digestive enzymes, and acidophilus and bifidus, are designed to support the different parts of the digestive system cope with the enormous variations in dietary composition as well as periods of disruption caused by lifestyle changes, illness and the process of ageing.
