Let’s talk about my newest favorite supplements and why EVERYONE can benefit from this. It’s simple. Do you eat food? You need Essentialzyme-4.
Young Living has four different enzyme supplements but I’m going to tell you specifically about this one because it is the most universal and complete.
(To summarize the differences in the 4 different enzyme supplements YL has: Two of them are vegetarian options and two are made from animal products. One of each is a quick release meant to be taken at mealtime and the other of each is meant to be taken once a day, preferably in the morning.)
So. What’s it for? It’s for breaking down food! Protease, Lipase, Cellulase, are all enzymes contained in this supplement which help break down their counterpoint foods. Protease breaks down protein. Lipase breaks down lipids (aka fats), cellulase breaks down… yep, cellulose (aka plant matter, aka veggies).
Essentailzyme-4 also contains amylase, peptidase, acid protease, phytase, bromelain, papain and an essential oil blend designed to support digestion (anise, ginger, rosemary, tarragon and fennel).
After the age of 25, our bodies slow down their natural production of enzymes. Less enzymes, means a lessened ability to break down the food we eat and get the benefit of its nutrients. It also means that uncomfortable feeling and bloating and a sluggish digestive system.
Want to do a cool experiment? Make 2 bowls of oatmeal. Bust open your E4 capsules and mix into one of the bowls.

Bonus: Check out Detoxzyme, which includes lactase… for those that have a hard time digesting lactose!
