PROTEASES: Some of the most important enzymes in your dog’s digestion for catalyzing the digestion of proteins and their reduction into amino acids. Processed proteins in dog food are difficult for your dog to digest and create an “immune reaction” when the proper enzymes are not present. With plant-based protease 3.0, 6.0, and 4.5 added to the meal, the breaking down of these robust proteins into amino acids happens earlier and make them more bio-available to your dog.
AMYLASE: Responsible for breaking down carbohydrates into sugars for energy and body systems.
DIASTASE: (also a type of amylase) A key enzyme for breaking down certain carbohydrates to maltose, making more energy available from your dog’s meal.
LIPASE: Metabolizes fats and triglycerides for best cardiovascular and neural health.
CELLULASE: Breaks down fiber, which is a difficult process for dogs naturally. Without cellulase present in the diet, your dog relies mostly on fermentation to break down cellulose fiber which limits his ability to use its energy and eliminate toxins.
HEMICELLULASE: A sub-class of cellulase which breaks down the cell walls of plants. Plant fibers can be a challenge for dogs, hemicellulase remove the internal fermentation process many dogs use to break down the modern diet.
BROMELAIN: Has both systemic and digestive enzyme properties. Bromelain is a protein digesting enzyme which is also an anti-inflammatory agent. Excellent for aging or arthritic dogs.
BETA-GLUCANASE: A systemic and digestive enzyme necessary for breaking down fiber, fungi, yeast, and bacteria. Hugely beneficial for dogs battling yeast, candida, and gas associated with poor digestion.
PEPTIDASE: A sub-call of proteolytic metabolizing enzymes (protein digesting), catalyzes peptides to amino acids.
