PrepZymes combines cultured
enzymes with papaya and alpine wild garlic. This breakthrough product has
been specially formulated to
replace the naturally occurring enzymes lost during
food processing, food preparation, and cooking, as well as due to
irradiating or the cultivation of depleted soils; and
meet the digestive needs of the diet found in
industrialized countries, which typically includes fats and proteins,
hidden sugars, dairy products, snack foods, and processed foods.
Each capsule of AIM
PrepZymes contains enzymes to help you
digest the foods you eat, plus two special features. The enzymes are
The lipase in AIM PrepZymes® ensures that fats and
oils are properly broken down early in the digestive
process. This eliminates the possibilities of proteins
becoming coated with oil and escaping predigestive
action. The maltase and invertase address the high
amounts of “hidden” sugars found in processed foods and
snack foods high in dairy, malt, and white sugars.
protease I & II for protein digestion,
alpha/beta amylase for carbohydrate digestion,
lipase for fats and oils digestion,
cellulase for dietary fiber digestion,
lactase for dairy products digestion,
invertase for white sugar digestion and to complement
amylase (Amylase first breaks down carbohydrates and starches into
simple sugars, and sucrase finishes the process.), and
maltase for malt sugars and grain digestion.
AIM PrepZymes contains cultured
enzymes, which are a breakthrough in enzyme production. Most enzymes are
derived from animal organs, notably the pancreas. Although these
pancreatic enzymes can be valuable, they are inefficient as digestive
enzymes. This is because pancreatic enzymes are limited by their
environment—they require an alkaline environment of pH 7.5 or more before
they begin to work. This makes predigestion impossible, as the stomach is
acidic, with a pH of well below 6.
Cultured enzymes have a very wide work environment: from
2.0 to 12.0 pH. In other words, they are active in both acidic and
alkaline environments. This makes them the best possible choice for
Papaya leaf and alpine garlicAIM PrepZymes contains papain, an enzyme similar
to pepsin, which helps break down protein. This is helpful for those who
may not have enough hydrochloric acid to activate pepsin in the stomach.
Alpine wild garlic aids in digestion and also contributes antioxidant
activity to the formula.
The papaya leaf found in
When you combine cultured enzymes with papaya and alpine
wild garlic, you get the best possible digestive product: one that
provides you with important digestive enzymes, as well as the materials to
fight metabolic damage.
The unique combination of enzymes (and more) found in
PrepZymes means better digestion for you. Of particular importance is the
digestion of fats and sugars.
The lipase found in AIM PrepZymes ensures that fats and oils are
properly broken down early in the digestive process. This eliminates the
possibilities of proteins becoming coated with oil, which means they may
escape predigestive action.
The sucrase and maltase address the high amounts of
"hidden" sugars found in processed foods and snack foods high in
dairy, malt, and white sugars.

Prepare a bowl of oatmeal, and let it sit overnight. Then
mix into the oatmeal the ingredients of one capsule of AIM PrepZymes .
Within 15 minutes, you will notice that the oatmeal
becomes more "liquid." Within one hour, you will practically be
able to drink it! This is the action of the enzymes breaking down the
oatmeal. This is what AIM PrepZymes does for the foods you eat!How to use AIM PrepZymes
To aid in digestion, take 1 capsule before or during
each meal. You may take more or less depending on your needs.
Shelf life is 3 years, sealed. Store in a cool, dry,
dark place (70-75 °F; 20.1-23.8 °C). Do not refrigerate.
Q & A
Who should use PrepZymes ?
If you believe that you are not digesting foods
well, you should use digestive enzymes. In addition, we have fewer enzymes
as we age, so we should always consider using digestive enzymes as we grow
May children and pregnant women use PrepZymes ?
Yes, they can. Both children and pregnant women should take the usual adult serving of one capsule before or during each
Is there anyone who should not take PrepZymes ?
Yes, it is recommended that those with
gastritis or gastric/duodenal ulcers not use AIM PrepZymes.
If we take enzymes orally, aren't they distroyed by the stomach acid before they do anything ?
According to Santillo, this is not true. In his
book Food Enzymes, he cites university research that has shown that
supplemental enzymes pass through the stomach uninjured. In one study, the
enzyme amylase digested starch in the stomach and then moved into the
small intestine, where it continued digestion.
Santillo also notes that foods are predigested by enzymes
in the upper portion of the stomach, which is known as the cardiac
stomach. According to Gray’s Anatomy, "The cardiac portion of
the stomach is a food reservoir in which salivary digestion continues. The
pyloric [lower stomach] portion is the seat of active gastric
What is the source of the enzymes found in PrepZymes ?AIM
PrepZymes are cultured from Aspergillus
niger and Aspergillus oryzac, Trichoderma types of fungi. The invertase is cultured from saccharomyces cerevisiae, a yeast.
AIM PrepZymes should be taken just
before or during meals. Prepzymes can also be taken in large amount between meals for non-digestive benefits.
The enzymes found in
