Peppermint Leaf Powder
Peppermint has a long history of use in aromatherapy and folk medicine for ailments such as vomiting, abdominal pain, indigestion and bloating. In Germany, the Commisson E monographs show peppermint leaf as being used to treat irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), in addition to other health concerns.
Cellulase is an enzyme that breaks down cellulose (major component of plant cell walls). Since humans do not produce cellulase, we can only partially break down cellulose through fermentation by the flora in the intestines which greatly reduces the nutrients we can utilize. As a result, in order to properly digest leafy greens, sprouts and herbs, we need to supplement Cellulase in our diet.
Amylase: Breaks down starches into sugars to be utilized by the body as energy.
Lipase: Breaks down fats

Papain breaks down proteins (meat fibres).
Pepsin breaks down proteins (meat fibres). It is one of the three primary protein-degrading enzymes in the digestive system. Allowing them to be more easily absorbed in the intestines.
