CereCalase® is formulated to combat the anti-nutritive effects of non-starch polysaccharides (NSPs). Hemicelluloses, betaglucans and phytic acid can all act as anti-nutritive factors. These constituents of plants can bind minerals and other nutrients effectively blocking their absorption in our bodies. CereCalase combines the enzymes necessary to disrupt the structure of these NSPs, releasing bound nutrients and increasing the availability of nutrients for absorption.

Phytic acid is one of these anti-nutritive factors. Phytic acid binds to minerals and blocks their absorption. The bioavailability of minerals such as calcium, zinc, iron and phosphorus is significantly reduced in the presence of phytic acid. This anti-nutritive factor is commonly found in grains, legumes, nuts, seeds and other vegetables. Unfortunately, our bodies don’t produce phytase and cannot reap the nutritional benefits of phytic acid-bound minerals. Both animal and human trials indicate that supplementation of phytase can release these nutrients and improve the nutritional status of the consumer. CereCalase provides phytase to break down phytic acid and release bound minerals.

Hemicelluloses and beta-glucans can also affect our nutritional status. These NSPs can bind vitamins, minerals and even the body’s digestive enzymes thus limiting (altering) the nutritional value of the food we eat. CereCalase provides hemicellulase and beta-glucanase to help degrade these NSPs and supports the release of trapped nutrients. Studies indicate that these enzymes support improved digestibility and nutrient profiles of grains, fruits and vegetables.

Eating a diet high in fruits and vegetables provides many nutrients and potential health benefits. CereCalase helps ensure you get the most nutritional benefit possible.
