Why choose Similase?

Similase contains a broad range of digestive enzymes including protease, amylase and lipase, to help support the breakdown of protein, carbohydrate and fat. Digestive enzymes are produced naturally by the body and act as catalysts to break down food so our bodies can absorb essential nutrients and utilise them for growth, repair and energy. Similase also supports the breakdown of dietary fibres and sugars, with enzymes such as cellulase and lactase, which help to breakdown lactose. As our bodies get older, our ability to create the necessary digestive enzymes may decline.

Similase has been a favourite amongst our healthcare practitioners and their patients for many years now. A high potency, broad-spectrum formula that works in a range of pH conditions from 2 - 12, found in the acidic stomach to the alkaline intestine, it supports optimal digestion of proteins, carbohydrates and fats. It works very well as part of a 5R gut restoration programme and can be taken alongside our other popular digestive products, including our Ultra Probioplex™ range of probiotics. Similase also contains artichoke extract, which helps to support healthy digestive function.


Why might we need digestive enzymes?

Digestive enzymes are needed for the breakdown of the food we eat, and are produced by our bodies and secreted into the digestive system. However, as we age, or during periods of illness, our enzyme activity may decline, and as a result, the breakdown and therefore the absorption of vital nutrients may be compromised. Taking a supplement containing enzymes such as protease, lipase and amylase can help to support optimal breakdown of the nutrients in the food we eat.


1-2 capsules taken at the beginning of each meal, an average total intake of 6 capsules daily, or as directed. It can also be used occasionally as relief for over-indulgence.
