Enzymedica Kids Digest Sour Berry 30 Chewable Tablets
Enzymedica Kids Digest Sour Berry provides a fun, chewable formula to enhance digestion and absorption of nutrients in a child's size meal portion, including protein, carbohydrates, fat, fiber and dairy sugars. The great tasting chewable is especially helpful for children who have difficulty swallowing capsules. Good nutrition and proper digestion are vital in the growing years of childhood. Enzymes are the most effective tools made by the body to aid digestion and assimilation of nutrients. A healthy diet and well functioning digestive system will supply the body with the nutrients it requires for energy and good health. Unfortunately, poor food choices, faulty digestion, or an enzyme deficiency may contribute to a variety of digestive disturbances in children.
The National Institue of Health reports children under 15 have the highest number of visits for chronic constipation and nearly as great a rate as persons age 65 and older. As children grow, they may experience symptoms of impaired digestion, including occasional gas, bloating, indigestion, abdominal discomfort, irregularity and general food intolerance. Supplementation with enzymes will encourage healthy digestion of proteins, fats, fibers and carbohydrates, in addition to promoting an optimally functional GI tract.
- The plant-based enzymes in Kids Digest are vegan and kosher and support healthy digestion of all food groups.
- This great tasting chewable is also free of fillers and common allergens, including gluten and casein.
- L-leucine is a natural form of leucine, an essential amino acid known to soothe and support symptoms of occasional GI distress
- Inulin is a good source of dietary fiber that promotes digestive health and is a sweet tasting replacement for sugar. Inulin also exhibits a prebiotic effect, feeding the healthy flora that resides in your GI tract to promote a healthy intestinal environment. The inulin in Kids Digest Chewable is derived from natural chicory.
- Xylitol is a carbohydrate naturally found in fibrous vegetables and fruit as well as in various trees. It is also produced by the human body. Xylitol imparts a sweet taste yet is very low in the glycemic index. Xylitol has a minimal effect on blood sugar and insulin, unlike other sugar sources.

In the spring of 1998, Enzymedica was born. The role of Enzymedica is to offer the public the most effective enzyme products available. They utilize the expertise of doctors, researchers and clinicians in formulating each of their products. They are proud of what they have to offer the public, namely therapeutic enzyme supplements that have been health professional proven.
Enzymedica's entire focus and purpose is enzymes. They are the experts. Unlike most of their competitors, Enzymedica does not make vitamin supplements or herbal cleanses. All they manufacture are the highest quality, highest potency enzyme products available.
Enzymedica products are Health Professional proven. Enzymedica products contain the highest therapeutic activities available. No other company uses higher active units in a multiple enzyme line. In addition to a digestive enzyme that is on average three times stronger than their competitors, Enzymedica has a therapeutic digestive enzyme blend, a carbohydrate digestion and allergy assistance blend, a blood purifier, and a fat digestion and cardiovascular product.
Enzymedica is proud to be GMP Registered through NSF International. Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) are guidelines that provide a system of processes, procedures, and documentation to assure the product produced has the identity, strength, composition, quality, and purity that it is represented to possess.
NSF International helps protect you by certifying products and writing standards for food, water and consumer goods. As an independent, not-for-profit organization, NSF's ongoing public health commitment is to encourage everyone to live safer. The NSF GMP Registration for contract manufacturers and internal manufacturing facilities of dietary supplement companies enables contract manufacturers to become independently registered by NSF as complying with GMP requirements as listed in Section 8 of NSF/ANSI Standard 173-2006. NSF's Dietary Supplement Standard is updated to keep pace with FDA GMP regulations.
Enzymedica uses an exclusive Thera-blend process for its protease, lipase, amylase and cellulase. This means that each of these enzymes actually represents multiple strains. For example, there are actually four proteases in the Thera-blend protease. They are blended for their ability to break down numerous bonds of protein in varying pH levels. Enzymedica does this at a considerable expense. From a label description Enzymedica also sacrifices active units to provide the best blend possible. A single protease, for example, could produce more active units per milligram than a multiple protease. However, the active pH would be narrow and the number of protein bonds it could break would be limited.
Enzymedica products are 100% vegan and vegetarian. Enzymedica uses no fillers in any of its enzyme formulations.
You will no doubt notice how small the capsules are in comparison to similar products. This is a result of using concentrates with no fillers.
Enzymedica continues to research the therapeutic effectiveness of plant based enzymes through doctors and clinicians. Currently, the company is coordinating and funding research that is ongoing. Enzymedica has every batch third party tested. This ensures they always meet label claim.
