1. What are digestive enzymes?
Enzymes are products that either begin or enhance the speed of chemical reactions. Present in the cells of plants and animals, they regulate biochemical reactions in both active and in active forms. They are specific with respect to their functions and do only that which they were designed to do.
2. How does Total-Zymes® aid in digestion?
Digestive enzymes break down the elements of food: the proteins, fats, oils, carbohydrates, glucose/sugars, and fiber, into their essential basic units for absorption. They also release plant minerals, and provide systemic help against inflammation and protein based allergies. While these enzymes are present in raw foods, they are eliminated in cooked or processed foods. This means the body is called upon to produce them and it does place a stress on the system. This also prevents a more fully digested product from getting all of its nutrition delivered to the pet.
