WHAT IS UDO’S CHOICE® ADULT ENZYME BLEND? Our highly effective Udo’s Choice® Adult Enzyme Blend is a mixture of plant- and microbe-based enzymes whose job it is to break down foods into their basic nutrient building blocks. We designed this special blend to provided people who care about health with a reliable way to maximize absorption of nutrients from foods and to provide relief from the digestive issues—and their discomforts—which are prevalent today. The absorbed nutrients are used for the construction and repair of the trillions of cells in our body, or broken down to supply the energy we need for this cellular construction and repair.
WHAT ARE DIGESTIVE ENZYMES AND WHAT DO THEY DO? In a perfect world, two sources of enzymes break down our foods. First, enzymes are naturally present in raw foods, and do part of the work (experts have estimated 10-90%, depending on the kind of food). Second, our body secretes digestive enzymes from various locations throughout the digestive tract (salivary glands, stomach, pancreas, and small intestine), which complete the work of digesting foods. Our reality, however, is different.
Because the enzymes naturally present in raw foods are heat-sensitive, they are destroyed as soon as we cook or process our foods. This places an added burden on our bodies during the digestive process. In addition, overeating (which dilutes enzymes and overtaxes production capacity), as well as not chewing our foods thoroughly (which fails to properly jumpstart the digestive process), further complicates things. When these unintended consequences catch up with us, they may cause problems, like missing out on key nutrients, weakened cells and tissues, and absorption of undigested foods. Symptoms such as pain, bloating, gas, swelling, inflammation, and immune reactions may follow. Compromised and weakened by poor digestion, our immune system may not be able to do some of its other jobs.
Udo’s Choice® Adult Enzyme Blend provides a complete spectrum of digestive enzymes required for optimum digestion, which is necessary to build a healthy body. It meets the needs of people who are vegan and who eat high-fat and high-protein diets by supporting digestive function and minimizing digestive problems.
You’ll find Udo’s Choice® Adult Enzyme Blend in brown glass bottles, on the shelf of the supplement section at your local whole foods market or natural food store.
WHO IS UDO’S CHOICE® ADULT ENZYME BLEND DESIGNED FOR? Digestive enzymes are required for health, to optimize the complete digestion of our foods at all stages of the human life cycle. This digestive enzyme blend is specifically made for vegans (dairy-free diets); higher-fat, higher-protein diets; and people who don’t have issues digesting dairy. The digestive enzymes in this blend break down proteins, fats, carbohydrates, legume sugars, and cellulose (fiber), freeing nutrients for absorption in the body. The available nutrients can then be used to support the natural functioning of cells, tissues, glands, and organs and, as a result, support healthy cardiovascular, brain and nerve function, and much more. It is also designed for anyone who: A) eats cooked and/or processed foods; B) suffers from weak digestion; C) wants to ensure complete digestion of what they eat; D) overeats; E) inadequately chews; F) has problems digesting cruciferous vegetables and/or legumes; G) suffers from gas, bloating, and abdominal discomfort after eating.*

The key ingredients in Udo’s Choice® Adult Enzyme Blend include amylase (helps to digest starch), extra lipase (helps to digest fats and oils), more bromelain and protease 4.5 (help to digest proteins), alpha-galactosidase (helps to digest sugars in cruciferous vegetables and legumes), and cellulase (helps to break down cellulose).
Take 1 or 2 capsules with each meal, depending on need.† For best results: Open capsule(s) and mix in foods or blended drinks (juices, smoothies). If you overeat and your stomach hurts, take four capsules for rapid relief.
Udo’s Choice® Enzyme Blend should never be added to foods too hot to eat, as extreme heat will destroy them. Once foods are cool enough to eat, enzymes are compatible with all foods.
Udo’s Choice® Adult Enzyme Blend is shelf stable, as long as its contents stay dry. In hot/humid climates, it helps to keep Udo’s Choice® Adult Enzyme Blend in the fridge.
