Potent pancreatic digestive enzymes. These Digestive enzymes utilize USP porcine-derived high-potency pancreatin for reliable and consistent enzyme activity that is specific for fat, protein, and carbohydrate (starch). Extra amounts of lipase, specific for breakdown of dietary fat, are included.
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.
If you suffer from heartburn, bloating, indigestion, chronic fatigue, high cholesterol, heart disease, intestinal & colon problems such as constipation, then our Digestive Enzymes may be beneficial for you and may contribute to the reduction of disease & aging.
Read about a now-famous independent long term study by Dr. Francis Pottenger about the long-term effects of eating cooked foods.
The study involved 900 cats over the course of ten years. During the study, Dr. Pottenger fed two sets of cats raw milk and meat and another three sets of pasteurized milk and cooked meat.
Cats that ate the raw food were healthy and disease-free and produced healthy kittens generation after generation. At the end of the first generation, cats that ate cooked foods were lethargic and began to suffer from allergies, infections, and other maladies, including kidney, heart, thyroid, and gum diseases. Each succeeding generation of cats that ate cooked food showed progressively more illness and disease. The third generation of cats that ate cooked food were not even able to produce offspring.
Whether we are cats, dogs, or human beings, when enzyme-dead food is eaten, the body is overburdened to produce enzymes to aid in the process of digestion. The body will actually interrupt the making of vital metabolic enzymes in order to compensate for the enzyme deficiencies in the foods we eat.
Enzyme-less diets are responsible for many of humanityís ills, including the shortening of lives. Today, doctors are treating children for juvenile arthritis, sugar diabetes, and other degenerative diseases that just a few years ago were found only in people in their fifties and sixties.
After thinking about the study above many of us may believe, if we want to improve our health and longevity, we can eat more raw vegetables and fruits. And take digestive enzymes when eating cooked foods that the enzymes were destroyed.

Potent pancreatic digestive enzymes. These Digestive enzymes utilize USP porcine-derived high-potency pancreatin for reliable and consistent enzyme activity that is specific for fat, protein, and carbohydrate (starch). Extra amounts of lipase, specific for breakdown of dietary fat, are included. Tablet disintegration is carefully controlled to quickly release contents upon reaching the small intestine, thus avoiding destruction of enzymes by stomach acid.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. I have bloating and gas that seems to be worse when I eat certain foods. Will taking digestive enzymes help this?
A. Digestive enzymes help you digest and utilize proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. You should notice that your bloating and gas are eliminated once you start taking digestive enzymes.
Q. Iíve been diagnosed with GERD and have been taking Nexium (Prevacid, Zantac, Prilosec, etc.) for several months. Can I stop taking this medication and just take the digestive enzymes you recommend?
A. I would encourage you to try the digestive enzymes (with each meal) for a week or two and see if this alone prevents you from giving any reflux symptoms. The longer youíve been on prescription medications for reflux the harder it becomes to discontinue them. However, you may find you donít need the prescription medication once you start taking a digestive enzyme. If you continue to have reflux while taking the digestive enzyme, then try adding the betaine HCL with pepsin and probiotics. If you continue to have a problem then youíll need to go back on the prescription medication. If so then discontinue the betaine HCL with pepsin, but keep taking the digestive enzyme with each meal.
Directions For Use: 1 tablet daily with each meal. Do not exceed 7 tablets per day. Not intended for chewing. Do not take if allergic to pork.

Products provided in tablet, capsule, and powder form are made in a manufacturing facility licensed by the State of California as a drug manufacturer and food processor and registered with the Food and Drug Administration as a drug manufacturing establishment. The facility is also approved by governmental agencies in the United Kingdom, the European Community (EC) and Australia to manufacture a drug product. Current GMP's and written standard operating procedures (SOP's) are strictly followed through all stages of production to produce products that meet or exceed United States Pharmacopeia (USP) standards.
Raw Material Specifications
Active ingredients used in Essential Therapeutics products are selected based on their purity, bioavailability, documented actions, and safety characteristics. USP materials, i.e., those meeting USP standards, are used for those nutrients where this standard exists. Raw materials are purchased exclusively from reputable vendors who provide detailed Certificates of Analysis for every lot of material. These certificates certify that active components, toxic elements, and microbial content are within specified acceptable parameters. Purity and potency of selected raw materials are verified through independent testing laboratories. All incoming raw materials undergo quarantine, inspection, and evaluation.
Quality Control Laboratory
On-site laboratory personnel evaluate physical characteristics of each finished product including hardness, disintegration, moisture balance, friability, and pH. Purity and potency of finished product is independently verified through outside commercial laboratories using a randomized ingredient and batch testing program.
Essential Therapeutics products are free of artificial flavors, preservatives, and colorings. Naturally-derived, inert excipient materials, including cellulose-based excipients, vegetable-derived magnesium stearate, and silicon dioxide are used in very small amounts as tableting and encapsulation aids. Tableted products are protected with an inert, water-soluble cellulose coating that dissolves readily upon ingestion, thus facilitating tablet disintegration time.
