World-renowned nutrition expert Udo Erasmus has created three distinct vegetarian enzyme formulations to facilitate healthy digestion. There are three varieties to choose from because not one single enzyme or enzyme formula is appropriate for everyone. This is because our dietary and lifestyle habits, as well as the strength of our digestive systems, change over time and throughout the various stages of life. Udo's Choice Enzyme Blends offer you a choice so you can incorporate a tailor-made enzyme blend into your lifestyle. There are two basic types of enzymes involved in the digestive process: those that are produced by our bodies and those that are present in raw foods. In the body, our naturally occurring digestive enzymes help us to break down and assimilate nutrients from food. They are produced by the pancreas, stomach, and salivary glands to act on food in the small intestine, stomach, or mouth.
