One of a Kind: Why consider Ultra-Zyme Plus? Enzymes are the force that allows our body to digest and absorb food. Our body requires enzymes and minerals to regulate every biochemical and metabolic process in our bodies as well as all living things.
Are you experiencing any of the following! Heartburn, bloating, indigestion, chronic fatigue, high cholesterol, heart disease, intestinal & colon problems, constipation or chronic constipation. Then Ultra-Zyme Plus may be beneficial for you and may contribute to the reduction of disease & aging.

Enzymes are a delicate lifelike substance found in all living cells whether animal or plant. Enzymes are energy protein molecules which are necessary for life. They catalyze and regulate chemical reactions and are an essential part of every activity in the body. Enzymes turn the food we eat into energy and unlock this energy for use in the body. There are three primary groups of enzymes: metabolic, digestive and food enzymes. Our bodies naturally produce both digestive and metabolic enzymes as they are needed. Metabolic enzymes run your body. Digestive enzymes digest your food and food enzymes are naturally present in all raw foods.
Everyone is born with a certain Enzyme Potential which represents the limited number of enzymes that our bodies can produce in a lifetime. This potential is contingent upon your genetic DNA, and is unique for every person. To bolster our body's natural enzyme potential, we need to eat enzyme-rich raw foods and supplement our diet with plant enzymes. When we eat cooked or processed foods, we are drawing from our enzyme potential and make ourselves vulnerable to a variety of problems. As we continually draw from our enzyme potential over the years, we begin to experience illness, ulcers, constipation, bloating, arthritis, headaches, PMS, chronic fatigue, and the list goes on.
We get enzymes from two sources: those our body makes and those we ingest. Only raw or uncooked food contain enzymes. Enzymes are heat sensitive, so when food is cooked, the enzymes are destroyed. If our digestive enzymes are not adequate our metabolic enzymes are then called upon to aid the digestive process. We quickly deplete our enzyme reserves without enzyme supplementation.
If you eat fast, processed, or cooked food, supplemental enzymes assist in the digestion of these enzyme deficient foods. Researchers have discovered that processing or cooking foods kills virtually all enzymes that the food once contained. This is unfortunate because food enzymes are essential in the first step of proper digestion, absorption, and usage of these vital nutrients found in the foods we eat.
Digestion of food takes a high priority and acts as a powerful stimulus in the demand for enzymes. We add to that stress, strenuous exercise, colds, fever, pregnancy, changes in weather conditions, ingesting caffeine and alcoholic beverages, plus the normal loss through sweat, urine, feces, and digestive fluids and overtime, a deficiency is created. We need to consider that the body is not being replenished at the same rate of demand.
When you habitually eat food deficient in enzymes, your digestive organs become exhausted. The body puts a higher priority on digestion than on maintaining health, so it will call on enzymes from other parts of the body to finish the job, thereby depleting the immune system. This will eventually weaken the body to the point where it has a difficulty defending itself against disease.
When we cannot digest our foods these foods become toxins, the digestive tract is compromised and the depletion of enzymes is obvious. These toxins then can be the perfect nourishment for the bad microorganisms. The battle between the balance of the good and bad bacteria is constantly being waged within our body.
Partially digested food stuff can and will be absorbed through inflamed mucosa or via lymphatic channels. If the body cannot handle these foreign particles then the toxins begin to filter throughout the body which may at first show up as skin allergies or eczema. These non-usable toxic substances begin to be stored in the tissues, joints and organs, which we loving refer to as arthritis or gout. The further the system becomes compromised the harder it is for the enzymes to do their job. Toxic residues can be stored in the tissues causing:
All of this because of an imbalance or lack of enzymes. In medical school they say this leads to disease
Looking a the label of an enzyme supplement you will find measurement units you may not be familiar with. These are from the Food Chemical Codex (FCC). The FCC is published by the National Academy Press and is the accepted standard of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The system for determining enzyme potency used by the American food industry is derived from the FCC. This is the ONLY National Standard for evaluation of fungal enzymes. This system establishes activity levels and potency for enzymes.
With most foods we are used to comparison by weight. With enzymes we are interested in the activity and potency available. There is no direct relationship between weight and units of activity.
The enzyme activity of the enzyme products available at Accelerated Wellness is measured and reported in FCC units. These unit measurements are expressed as follows:
Protease--HUT (Hemoglobin Unit Tyrosine base)
When comparing enzyme activity products make sure measurements are listed using FCC standard codes. Some manufacturers make up their own abbreviations, and not only does that not comply to standards, it is confusing to the consumer.
Because of the variety of labeling formats used it is important to read carefully and make sure you are not comparing apples to oranges, but the strength in activity of an enzyme product to one that is comparable.
