A.I. Enzymes ®
What Is A.I. Enzymes?
A.I. Enzymes® provides a superior combination of natural
vegetarian-based enzymes precisely balanced for broad
spectrum support of digestive function, or to help maintain
healthy joints and muscles in times of peak stress.*
Features of A.I. Enzymes
- Dual support for digestion and the musculoskeletal
- Enzymes that are stable in a wide pH range.*
- Enhanced levels of protease, amylase and lipase
derived from the digestion of a nutrient source by Aspergillus oryzaeand Apergillus niger.
- High potency bromelain and papain to further support
the protease profile of this formula.
- The flavonoid rutin for protection against oxidative
Uses For A.I. Enzymes
Taken with meals, this plant enzyme
blend supports the body’s natural digestive process
by promoting the breakdown of protein, carbohydrates
Taken between meals, the
enzymes in A.I. Enzymes promote healthy levels of kinins
and fibrin, thereby helping to maintain normal muscle
and joint function.*
The Source for A.I. Enzymes
The protease and amylase in this formula are derived
from the digestion of a nutrient source by Aspergillus
oryzae. Lipase is derived from the digestion of a nutrient
media by Aspergillus niger. Aspergillus oryzae and
Aspergillus niger are fungi that produce enzymes when
grown in certain nutrient media. The enzymes they
produce to digest this media are isolated and purified.
There are no fungi present in the finished product.
Bromelain and papain are derived from pineapple and
papaya, respectively. Rutin is sourced from the Fava
danta tree found in Brazil.
