Enzycore is a comprehensive blend of enzymes, glutamine, and whole food ingredients designed to support healthy digestion and maximize nutrient absorption.

  • Contains microbial enzymes for action within a broad range of pH
  • Contains a blend of enzymes that comprehensively break down fats, protein, and carbohydrates
  • Kale and beet powder included to support healthy digestive process
  • Contains 350 mg L-glutamine, an amino acid used as a building block for other amino acids; also provides energy to cells with high energy needs (like those in the intestines)
  • Provides support during both gastric and intestinal phases of digestion*
What enzymes does Enzycore contain?

Our comprehensive proprietary enzyme blend is derived from microbial sources, whole food and other ingredients. Clinical studies suggest that this type of enzyme may be used at a lower dose than animal-derived enzymes with similar results. Also microbial enzymes work within a broader range of pH than animal enzymes. Our blend supports the breakdown of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates and contains:

Protein Enzymes Fat Enzymes Carbohydrate Enzymes
Peptidase Lipase Acid maltase
Proteases   Alpha galactosidase
How does bromelain support digestion?

An enzyme complex extracted from pineapple stems and juice, bromelain has a long history of use in Central American and South American traditional medicine. When taken with meals, as recommended for Enzycore, bromelain helps break down protein into its component amino acids.

How does glutamine support intestinal health?

An amino acid, glutamine is used as a building block for other amino acids and compounds like glutathione. Cells that require a lot of energy (like those in the small intestine) can use glutamine as an energy source. In this way, glutamine supports the integrity of the intestinal lining and the immune cells associated with the intestines. This amino acid can be depleted by stress, which can in turn slow the body's natural regeneration and healing process.*

Whole Food Nutrient Solutions

Since 1929, Standard Process has been the visionary leader in whole food nutrient solutions. We apply systems thinking to holistic nutrition that empowers practitioners to transform lives. Dedicated to the whole food philosophy of our founder, Dr. Royal Lee, our goal is to carry on his mission to provide nutrients for the body that are as close as possible to how they are found in nature.

Our products include foods that are prepared in a way that safeguards their nutritional value. The majority of these ingredients are grown locally on our certified organic farm and may require chopping, dicing, juicing, and/or drying for use in our products. The resulting whole food ingredients are then added to a formula that may include whole food extracts, animal tissue extracts and concentrates, botanicals, whole food isolates, and synthetic ingredients. These highly complex combinations contain a variety of elements designed to trigger trophic effects that support the body’s healthy balance and wellness.*


Suggested Use: One capsule three times per day with meals, or as directed.
