Initially, enzyme supplements were most commonly produced in tablet form. These were soon followed by powder-filled capsules. As our company and technology evolved, World Nutrition introduced what’s been proven as the most effective form of systemic enzyme delivery – the enteric-coated liquid-filled gel capsule. The enteric-coating allows enzymes to survive the acidic environment of the stomach and perform at maximum levels in the small intestine.
Each Vitälzӯm™ liquid-filled gel capsule is armored with a natural protective layer, shielding the enzymes from the aggressive journey through the stomach. Without this protective shield, enzymes are exposed to harsh environments and are instantly destroyed by stomach acids before any major absorption takes place. Stomach acidity is greater in the presence of food. Ingesting systemic enzymes without food further protects the enzyme activity by traveling through a less acidic stomach environment.
Enteric-coated enzyme supplements provide the most superior formulation available and are the most reliable method to ensure nearly 100% enzyme activity and absorption in the small intestine. There is still a large market of consumers, however, that are looking for both systemic and digestive benefits in a single product. Those consumers enjoy our original Vitälzӯm™ – a hybrid powder-filled capsule product designed to be taken with food to aid digestion as well as deliver systemic enzymes to the small intestine.* To learn more, please visit The Vitälzӯm™ Difference.
Whether you’re looking for the highest-quality enteric-coated systemic enzyme product or the best hybrid enzyme formulation, World Nutrition is proud to offer pure, potent, and powerful solutions for your health and well-being.
