The Food supplement is a multiple, balanced enzyme nutrient supplement formulated as a dry feed additive for all animals. It is designed to help breakdown feed faster and make more nutrients available for more rapid absorption. This supplement is designed specifically to keep the digestive system working at its most efficient level, conserving feed and promoting animal health.
Formulated to include a balanced blend of enzymes and water-soluble, trace mineral electrolytes, it is an essential part of modern feed programs.
This product improves profitability for livestock producers by providing the following benefits:
- Reduces the need for hormones, steroids and antibiotics
- Improving feed efficiency and digestion
- Improving weight gain
- Improving reproduction
- Improving growth, vigor and productivity
- Reducing illness
- Reducing feed consumption
- Reducing stress
- Reducing fly populations
- Reducing odors
- Reducing parasite problems
What are Enzymes?
Enzymes are a delicate lifelike substance found in all living cells, whether animal or vegetable. Enzymes are energized protein molecules necessary for life. They catalyze and regulate nearly all biochemical reactions that occur within the body. Enzymes turn the food that is eaten into energy and unlock this energy for use in the body. There are three basic types of enzymes. The body naturally produce two types, digestive and metabolic enzymes as they are needed, while food enzymes can only be consumed orally.
Metabolic enzymes speed up the chemical reaction within the cells for detoxification and energy production. They enable us to see, hear, feel, move and think. Every organ, every tissue, and all 100 trillion cells in our body depend upon the reaction of metabolic enzymes and their energy factor. Metabolic enzymes are produced in the liver, pancreas, gallbladder, and other organs.
Digestive Enzymes are secreted along the digestive tract to break food down into nutrients and waste. This allows nutrients to be absorbed into the blood stream and the waste to be discarded. Humans, swine, and poultry do not produce cellulase, an enzyme necessary for proper digestion of fiber, so it must be introduced through raw foods or supplemented.
What do enzymes do?
Enzymes deliver nutrients, carry away toxic wastes, digest food, purify the blood, deliver hormones by feeding and fortifying the endocrine system, balance cholesterol and triglyceride levels, feed the brain and cause no harm to the body. All these factors contribute to the strengthening of the immune system.
Why are enzymes important?
Humans and animals are born with the ability to produce a finite number of enzymes. This enzyme-making potential gives the body organs the ability to produce either metabolic enzymes or digestive enzymes. The body’s enzyme-making machinery must work overtime and often still cannot meet the demand for all of the enzyme requirements the body may have. Since digestion always takes precedence over nearly everything else, many body functions requiring metabolic enzymes are often short-changed during these times. The result is a lower disease-fighting capability and a general weakening of the body’s ability to mend itself. A deficiency in digestive enzyme production can lead to malabsorption and poor nutrition, plus many digestive tract problems and conditions.
Why supplement diets with enzymes?
This enzyme potential concept clearly supports the case for supplementing diets with enzymes. If the body can get the necessary extra digestive enzymes it needs to complete the digestive process without overstressing the body’s enzyme-making potential, then a metabolic enzyme shortage will not occur and the body will be in a much more favorable position to fight biologic and genetic malfunctions and disease as they occur. Using too much of the enzyme potential to produce digestive enzymes limits the ability to produce metabolic enzymes making the body susceptible to disease. Using supplemented enzymes to promote digestion reduces the need to produce digestive enzymes allowing the body to produce the metabolic enzymes needed to operate efficiently.
It is a known fact that fungal forms, parasites, and bacteria are made up of protein, and the shell that protects a virus in the body is in fact a protein coating. The enzyme protease breaks down proteins and since the invaders of our blood system are protein, it would make sense that ingesting protease would help purify the blood of protein invaders.
