Unprocessed fruits and vegetables naturally contain enzymes that assist the stomach and digestive system in breaking down food into usable nutrients. Processed food, in contrast, usually lacks these enzymes (they have been denatured or broken down). Insufficient digestive enzymes can lead to indigestion, gas, bloating, and food passing through the digestive tract undigested, nutrients unabsorbed.
Ojas Plant Enzymes is formulated from a wide variety of fruits and vegetables to support the assimilation of nutrients and healthy digestion of fat, protein, carbohydrates, and fiber.
