Body Ecology Assist Enzymes
Body Ecology Assist Enzymes is a powerful, fast-acting, high-potency enzyme formula. It is formulated to provide a wide range of useful digestive enzymes to help break down food, absorb nutrients, and prevent gas and bloating. Five different types of protease are included to assure digestion of proteins over the entire pH range, from 2.0 to 11.0, as found in the stomach and small intestine.
Assist Enzymes is formulated by Donna Gates, well-known nutritional consultant, lecturer, and author of The Body Ecology Diet, who specializes in the new field of intestinal ecology. It is a vegetarian product, and comes in capsules.
Body Ecology Assist contains the following:
- Protease blend
- Malt Diastase (Maltase)
- Invertase (Sucrase)
- Peptidase FP
Enzymes may be our most important nutrients. They are protein-like substances responsible for nearly every facet of life and health. When we eat raw foods, we are consuming food enzymes that enable proper digestion. However, food enzymes are destroyed at temperatures above 118 degrees, and cooked foods and processed foods are devoid of them.
Without the food enzymes to help break down our foods, the pancreas must create all the enzymes necessary to digest the cooked foods. This constant need depletes our store of enzymes, strains the body, and causes the pancreas to enlarge. And as we age, there is a slow and constant decrease in the enzyme content of our bodies.
If we do not consume proper levels of enzymes, the following symptoms may occur:
- • Excessive gas and bloating
- • Diarrhea and/or constipation
- • Heartburn
- • Low energy
- • Acne
- • Arthritis
- • Allergies
- • Insomnia
- • High cholesterol levels
- • Impaired immunity
The best way to assure your body gets an adequate amount of enzymes on a daily basis is to maintain a diet high in raw and fermented foods, and to supplement with a high-quality digestive enzyme product.

About Body Ecology, the company
After years of extensive study, Body Ecology founder Donna Gates created a back-to-basics approach to restoring health and vitality by understanding the invaluable balance of the human body's "inner ecology".
Donna Gates is a respected authority in the field of digestive health, diet, and nutrition. Donna coined the phrase “inner ecosystem” to describe the network of microbes that maintain our basic physiological processes from digestion to immunity.
In her 30s, Donna began searching for answers to lifetime of health issues. Several years of research and examination of her own diet led her to slowly heal from years of sensitivity and infection. She replaced her standard American diet with one rich in probiotics and fermented foods and beverages. Donna decided to put together everything she had learned into a book that would be easy for others to follow, and the Body Ecology Diet was born. Through Body Ecology, Donna is able to bring the best of medical science, naturopathy, and ancient Chinese medicine together so that everyone can access her system of health and healing.
Body Ecology offers products geared to one fundamental law of nature: the fact that our digestive systems are intimately linked to our immune, endocrine, circulatory and central nervous systems. Profoundly affecting all these interlocking systems is an amazing world of benevolent bacteria: the microscopic “good guys” that must be present in your intestines for you to be healthy.
Often forgotten or unconsidered, probiotics and enzymes are crucial to a healthy and efficient internal system. When this system is out of balance, a host of medical issues and conditions can arise.
Body Ecology's products are all designed to help cultivate, nourish, cleanse and repair the body's abundant inner ecosystem.
The Body Ecology system of health and healing is comprised of three simple dietary principals that can have a profound impact on how you feel:
• The addition of cultured foods to your diet
• Changing the quality of fats and oils you consume
• Drastically reducing your intake of carbohydrates and sugars
Body Ecology products are designed to restore your system’s harmony through effective nutritional therapy.
