Benefits at a Glance

  • Promotes healthy digestion and optimal nutrient absorption
  • Unique formula delivers 12 different digestive enzymes
  • Protease, lipase, and cellulase enzymes adapt to a variety of pH conditions
  • Does not promote after-meal blood-glucose surges
  • Facilitates the breakdown of difficult plant fibers

Digestive enzymes facilitate digestion and nutrient absorption

Your body obtains nutrients by breaking down the food you eat. This process, called digestion, is facilitated by special compounds called digestive enzymes. And since proteins, plant fibers, and fats are all broken down differently, you need a wide spectrum of enzymes for optimal digestion.

Supplementing with digestive enzymes

Human studies suggest that supplementary enzymes may improve digestion and help minimize post-meal glucose surges, as well.1,2 Extraordinary Enzymes is a multi-enzyme formula that facilitates both optimal nutrient absorption and broad relief from digestive discomforts — without promoting after-meal glucose surges.3

12 different enzymes, including protease, cellulase, and lipase

Extraordinary Enzymes provides a powerful blend of 12 total enzymes to help your digestive system readily absorb the nutrients of just about any food and convert it to energy — be it a protein, fiber, or fat. With a potent array of protease, cellulase, and lipase enzymes formulated to adapt to a variety of stomach acid pH conditions and powerfully support digestion, Extraordinary Enzymes may enhance protein content in your body and allow for better fat utilization.4,5

Natural digestive support — without after-meal glucose spikes

Unlike commercial digestive enzyme supplements, amylase is intentionally left out of Extraordinary Enzymes. Why? Because amylase breaks down starches into glucose that is rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream.6,7

Promotes the breakdown of hard-to-digest plant fibers

Extraordinary Enzymes even facilitates the breakdown of plant fibers that cause people to avoid healthy vegetables because of digestive discomforts. Most people will take one capsule before the two heaviest meals, which provides 400 mg of natural digestive enzymes each day.

Together, the enzymes in Extraordinary Enzymes work by an all-natural, synergistic process to help provide nutritional support for a healthy digestive system. Try it today!
