Essentialzymes-4 is one of my absolute favorite supplements! This product has been life changing for me, and is one of the YL products I am ALWAYS sharing with my friends and family. This product is a multi-spectrum enzyme complex that helps to break down dietary fats, proteins, fiber, and carbohydrates.
First, lets talk about enzymes. Our bodies do not absorb food. Instead, they absorb the nutrients in our food. Digestive enzymes play a critical role in breaking down our food so our bodies can absorb the nutrients from our diet. If our food is not broken down correctly, one could be eating a very healthy diet and still be missing out on many nutrients a healthy diet offers. Every single person is born with different digestive enzymes, and on the flip side, everyone is born with different enzyme needs. This is one of the many reasons I LOVE Essentialzymes-4.
Essentialzymes-4 is a Young Living product that combines 4 previous digestive enzyme products into one. This product supports the breakdown of fats, carbs, proteins, and fiber…in one supplement. It supplements our bodies with a wide variety of digestive enzymes. It come packaged with two different capsules, a natural-colored capsule and a yellow capsule. The yellow capsule is an immediate release and disintegrates within 20 minutes of entering the stomach. This capsule will aide in the breakdown of food in our stomach. The natural-colored capsule is a delayed release and disintegrates in the small intestine. This capsule was designed to support the breakdown of food in our intestine. Because of the two different capsules, you have support in TWO digestive organs instead of just one.
This product is meant to be taken with your two largest meals. We recommend taking it within 15 minutes before or after these two meals. The two capsules (one yellow, one natural-colored) come packaged together in perforated sections for easy on-the-go travel packs. I always have at least one full sleeve of Essentialzymes-4 in my purse! One serving size is one yellow and one natural-colored capsule—two capsules total.
Here are some answers to a few common questions about Essentialzymes-4:
- It is not a vegetarian supplement. Although, Detoxzyme and Allerzyme are both vegan friendly products.
- This product can make your urine turn neon yellow! It is because of Riboflavin, a water soluble vitamin that can cause yellowing of urine. Rest assured there is no harm associated with this reaction! Because of this reaction, I can always tell when I have taken my Essentialzymes-4.
