No-Fryday-480wThis product contains active enzymes. Please read No FryDay Shipping Policy, below:

Please be advised, the following points are the reasoning behind our “No FryDay” enzyme shipping policy:

  • Applied Health’s products ship out of Scottsdale, Arizona, where we have two seasons; Summer, and a few days in January.

  • Our unofficial city slogan is, “Welcome to Scottsdale… You are now 30 miles from water… and, 2 feet from Hell.

  • The success of some of our products are due to a highly refined enzyme technology, custom tailored for each specific product. Enzymes are proteins, each type with a specific shape and purpose. In general, they are fairly stable, but excessive heat can alter the shape, effectively, changing the ability to function correctly.

  • For this reason, during the hot times of the year, we choose not to ship enzyme-containing products from our facilities on Fridays. This is just an additional step we take to ensure the quality of the product is maintained between the time it leaves here and arrives at your door.

  • Please understand the occasional Summertime delays, for we put too much effort into providing you the highest-performing product in its respective category to allow a product to languish among inferior parcels in the back of a Postal truck, on the South side of Phoenix, over a blistering hot weekend.

Enzyme Measurements Explained

Enzymes are measured by the work they are capable of performing, and not by their weight or volume, as many assume. This is indicated in a form of activity unit as a measure of potency. Many enzymes are assayed using internationally recognized methods and procedures.

Use of these recognized assay procedures ensures that the methodology utilized can be reproduced to verify accuracy and legitimacy of the assay. Most microbial and plant enzymes used in dietary supplements are measured according to Food Chemicals Codex (FCC) assays.

Carbohydrate Specific Enzymes

  • Amylase:  Enzymes that break down starch.
  • Glucoamylase: Also known as amyloglucosidase, this enzyme works with amylase to break down starches

Sugar Specific Enzymes

  • Lactase:  Enzyme that breaks down milk sugar into simple sugars.
  • Sucrase (invertase):  Invertases and sucrases hydrolyze sucrose (table sugar) to give the simple sugars glucose and fructose
  • Maltase:  Enzyme that breaks down the disaccharide maltose to produce two free glucose molecules.
  • Pullulanase (debranching enzyme with isomaltase side chain activity):  Enzyme that cleaves pullulan, a polysaccharide composed of maltotirose units.

Vegetable/Plant Fiber Specific Enzymes

  • Cellulase:  Enzyme which breaks down cellulose, a non-soluble fiber not digested by humans.
  • Hemicellulase/Pectinase Complex:  Types of enzymes that break down NSPs known as pectins, a structural heteropolysaccharide contained in the primary cell walls of plants.
  • Phytase:  Enzyme that breaks down phytic acid releasing phosphorus and bound minerals.
  • Beta Glucanase:  Enzyme which disrupts NSPs (pectins).
  • Alpha-Galactosidase:  Enzyme that breaks down complex sugars found in beans, broccoli, cabbage and other vegetables that commonly cause bloating, gas, and flatulence; helps prevent gas.
  • Galactomannase: Enzyme that breaks down Galactomannans. Galactomannans are commonly used in food industry as stabilizers and to increase viscosity.  Commonly found in fenugreek, guar, tara, and carob (locust bean) gums.  Humans have no digestive enzymes to break down galactomannans which pass undigested into the distal intestines for microbial fermentation, often leading to gas and bloating.

Protein and Peptide Specific Enzymes

  • Acid Protease:  A group of microbial-derived enzymes with an optimal proteolytic activity at an acidic pH. Acid protease hydrolyzes a broad array of peptide bonds and exhibits both endo- and exoprotease activities meaning it breaks peptide bonds within and from the ends of a protein chain and giving rise to amino acids and small polypeptides.
  • Alkaline Protease:  Like the acid protease, accept this performs best at an alkaline pH. Aklaline protease also breaks down a variety of peptide bonds both within and from the ends of a protein chain. The combination of alkaline and acid proteases facilitates protein digestion across a broad pH range from the stomach to the jejunum.
  • Protease/Peptidase Complex with DPP-IV endo-peptidase/exo-peptidase activity:  An enzyme complex with the rare ability to hydrolyze prolyl bonds in proteins carrying the amino acid proline in the next to last position from the amino (N) terminus releasing dipeptides.

Fat Specific Enzymes

  • Lipase:  Lipase is the short name for triacylglycerol lipase. Lipase converts dietary triglycerides (fats or lipids) into diglycerides, monoglycerides, fatty acids, and glycerol.

Other Enzymes

  • Lysozyme (from egg white):  Documented in human studies to inhibit the growth of Candida albicans.
  • Serratia peptidase (enteric-coated):  Serratia peptidase exhibits well documented fibrinolytic (prevention of blood clots), anti-inflammatory, and anti-edematous (prevents swelling of tissues from water entrapment – edema)  activities and lessens the viscosity of exudates (a fluid of protein and cellular elements that escapes blood vessels due to inflammation and settles in nearby tissues).  Serratia peptidase has a greater ability to break down the milk protein casein than any other known neutral or alkaline protease.
