Ω-Zyme™ Digestive Enzyme
Ω-Zyme™(pronounced Omega-Zyme) is a highly
effective digestive enzyme product that helps the body
process proteins, carbohydrates, fats and dairy. With
more than 20 different digestive enzymes, Ω-Zyme
is effective even with difficult-to-digest foods such
as broccoli, nuts, seeds and beans. Ω-Zyme also
has up to 20 times more lipase for fat digestion than
According to the Surgeon General's report on
nutrition and health, eight out of 10 leading causes
of death in the U.S. are diet related. Digestive
problems, rare or non-existent less than a century
ago, now represent one of the most important health
issues in North America. Consuming enzyme rich foods
and "live" enzyme supplements like Ω-Zyme
is the best way to ensure your body gets the enzymes
it needs for proper metabolism and good health.

What are enzymes and why
do I need them?
Enzymes are protein-like substances that help
maintain the body's tissues, orchestrate its functions
and digest food. There are three kinds of enzymes:
- Digestive enzymes secreted by the pancreas break
down the nutrients in the foods we eat.
- Metabolic enzymes spark many of the reactions
inside cells, enabling our organs, tissues and
cells to work properly.
- Food enzymes supplied by what we eat help break
down food before our digestive enzymes are called
upon. Food enzymes are destroyed at temperatures
above 118 degrees, so all cooked and processed
foods are devoid of them.
Enzymes are perhaps our most important nutrients.
When we eat raw foods, we consume the enzymes they
contain, making them easy to digest. However, when we
eat cooked or processed foods, the body must create
the enzymes necessary to digest them. This constant
demand for enzymes depletes our supply, strains the
body and enlarges the pancreas. Without the proper
levels of enzymes from foods or supplements, you are
susceptible to excessive gas and bloating, diarrhea,
constipation, heartburn, low energy, acne, arthritis,
allergies, insomnia, high cholesterol and many other
Since enzymes are destroyed once they complete
their tasks, we must constantly replenish our supply
for life to continue. The best ways to get the enzymes
you need are to consume a diet high in
"live" raw and fermented foods, and to
consume a high-potency digestive enzyme supplement
such as Ω-Zyme™.
The State of our Digestion
According to the Surgeon General's Report on
Nutrition and Health, eight out of 10 leading causes
of death in the United States are diet related.
Digestive problems comprise the number one health
problem in North America. Digestive complaints
including everything from hemorrhoids to colon cancer
result in more time lost at work, school, and play
than any other health-related problem. Many of these
digestive problems were rare or non-existent less than
a century ago.
Why is this? And how can we return to the health of
our ancestors? Consume enzyme-rich foods and
"live" enzyme supplements.
It is easy to understand that a stable supply of
all enzymes is necessary for the human body and is of
paramount importance. "Alas, our increasingly
toxic eating habits and lifestyle not only deprives us
from the enzymes we must import into our body, but
also deteriorates the organs in charge of producing
the body's own enzymes," notes Dr. Peter R.
Rothschild, of the Faculty of Natural Medicine at the
Peoples University of the Americas. "The
progressive, overall depletion of enzymes leads to a
situation in which we can neither digest the food we
eat, nor can our body synthesize the materials
required for cell repair and maintenance.
"Therefore, not only general but also a
partial, specific enzyme deficit is unquestionably
responsible for many of the diseases that escalate in
the wake of our relentlessly deteriorating lifestyle.
"Summing up the situation, the corollary to
our increasingly worsening enzyme deficiencies is a
progressive failure to digest proteins, fats, sugars,
starches and other carbohydrates, which causes a great
variety of diseases."
Lymph Gland Blockages
It is in the area of lymph gland blockage that the
work of Dr. Rothschild truly shines and should grab
the attention of both health-conscious consumers and a
wide range of health professionals.
"Incompletely digested protein and/or
carbohydrate molecules trigger a domino-effect insofar
that the fragmentary breakdown compounds produce a
secondary carbohydrate- polysaccharides-which condense
in the tissue fluids of the body, and combine with
excess proteins forming a substance known as
mucoproteins," says Dr. Rothschild. "This is
an aggregate of undigested proteins, forming long
chains of polypeptides that adhere to unassimilated
carbohydrates. In a worst-case scenario, mucoproteins
can also condense in plasma. The accretion of
mucoprotein is the main cause of lymphatic congestion,
which is the foremost trigger factor of a great
variety of severe pathologies…"
It's worth taking the time to explore the
consequences of lymph gland blockages. The lymphatic
system defends the body from foreign invasion by
disease-causing agents such as viruses, bacteria, or
fungi. The lymph system contains a network of vessels
that assists in circulating body fluids. These vessels
transport excess fluids away from interstitial spaces
in body tissue and return it to the bloodstream for
eventual elimination. Lymphatic vessels prevent the
backflow of the lymph fluid. They have specialized
bean-shaped organs called lymph nodes that filter out
destroyed microorganisms. If your lymph system is
malfunctioning, internal toxicity is quite likely. And
that will lead to disease.

in any room temperature liquid or sprinkled directly
onto room temperature or cold food.
A great test to
experience the effectiveness of digestive enzymes is
to perform the oatmeal test. Simply take 1/2 cup of
cooked oatmeal or other cooked cereal and allow it to
cool to room temperature. Add 1 caplet (crushed) or
scoop of W-ZYMETM
and begin to stir. Watch as the enzymes break down
the starches, protein and fiber contained in the
oatmeal. Seeing is believing!

Enzyme Activity Per Dosage
Smart Shopper Tips
One of the true advantages of OmegaZyme
is its potency compared to other digestive enzyme
formulas. It is worthwhile mentioning that many
digestive enzyme formulas have so little enzymatic
activity, that they simply don't have the power to
break down the amount of food you are eating at the
time. For example, it takes approximately 1,000 ALUs
of lactase to digest the lactose contained in eight
ounces of milk in about 30 minutes. Each and every
enzyme included in a formula needs to be provided in
an effective dosage but most products do not do this.
This is why the OmegaZyme formula is certainly among
the best digestive enzyme formulations now available
Repeated laboratory assays as well as regular
quality control tests reveal that Garden Of Life's
OmegaZyme contains very high levels of proteases
for protein breakdown and other proteolytic functions;
lipase for fat-breakdown; and amylase for digesting
starches. These and other enzymes present in this
supplement do not only effectively aid digestion in
general, but also help to remove accumulated, sticky
waste adhered to the lining of the intestines and
colon, that originate a whole array of
Another reason OmegaZyme is unquestionably the
premier digestive enzyme formula now available to
consumers is the Poten-Zyme™ process. By utilizing
our unique Homeostatic Soil Organisms™ and
additional organic beneficial bacterial cultures,
Garden of Life is able to ferment our botanical blend
of cat's claw, ginger, turmeric, and barley grass
juice. Fermentation with Poten-Zyme™ produces a
powerful array of beneficial enzymes, antioxidants,
and other unique substances that also aid digestion.
This is the "alchemy" present in all Garden
of Life formulas.
In brief, OmegaZyme participates in both cleansing
and maintaining both the small and large intestinal
environment of toxic residues and waste. This is an
essential condition for achieving appropriate
assimilation of nutrients.
