AIM PrepZymes
digestive enzymes, protease, amylase, lipase, cellulase, lactase, invertase


  • Supplements body’s enzyme supply
  • Aids digestion
  • Improves assimilation and utilization of food
  • Increases energy


  • Specially made for high-sugar, high-fat diets commonly found in "industrialized" countries
  • Contains cultured enzymes
  • Unique formula contains 50 mg of alpine wild garlic and 40 mg of papaya leaf
  • 100-count bottles

PrepZymes combines cultured enzymes with papaya and alpine wild garlic. This breakthrough product has been specially formulated to

  • replace the naturally occurring enzymes lost during food processing, food preparation, and cooking, as well as due to irradiating or the cultivation of depleted soils; and

  • meet the digestive needs of the diet found in industrialized countries, which typically includes fats and proteins, hidden sugars, dairy products, snack foods, and processed foods.

Each capsule of AIM PrepZymes contains enzymes to help you digest the foods you eat, plus two special features. The enzymes are

  • protease I & II for protein digestion,

  • amylase for carbohydrate digestion,

  • lipase for fats and oils digestion,

  • cellulase for dietary fiber digestion,

  • lactase for dairy products digestion,

  • invertase for white sugar digestion

  • maltase for malt sugars and grain digestion.

Special Features

Cultured Enzymes
AIM PrepZymes contains cultured enzymes, which are a breakthrough in enzyme production. Most enzymes are derived from animal organs, notably the pancreas. Although these pancreatic enzymes can be valuable, they are inefficient as digestive enzymes. This is because pancreatic enzymes are limited by their environment—they require an alkaline environment of pH 7.5 or more before they begin to work. This makes predigestion impossible, as the stomach is acidic, with a pH of well below 6.

Cultured enzymes have a very wide work environment: from 2.0 to 12.0 pH. In other words, they are active in both acidic and alkaline environments. This makes them the best possible choice for predigestion.

Papaya leaf and alpine garlic
The papaya leaf found in
AIM PrepZymes contains papain, an enzyme similar to pepsin, which helps break down protein. This is helpful for those who may not have enough hydrochloric acid to activate pepsin in the stomach. Alpine wild garlic aids in digestion and also contributes antioxidant activity to the formula.

When you combine cultured enzymes with papaya and alpine wild garlic, you get the best possible digestive product: one that provides you with important digestive enzymes, as well as the materials to fight metabolic damage.

Enhanced Digestion
The unique combination of enzymes (and more) found in PrepZymes means better digestion for you. Of particular importance is the digestion of fats and sugars.

The lipase found in AIM PrepZymesensures that fats and oils are properly broken down early in the digestive process. This eliminates the possibilities of proteins becoming coated with oil, which means they may escape predigestive action.

The invertase and maltase address the high amounts of "hidden" sugars found in processed foods and snack foods high in dairy, malt, and white sugars.

Try this
To see firsthand the power of
AIM PrepZymes, try this experiment.

Prepare a bowl of oatmeal, and let it sit overnight. Then mix into the oatmeal the ingredients of one capsule of PrepZymes.

Within 15 minutes, you will notice that the oatmeal becomes more "liquid." Within one hour, you will practically be able to drink it! This is the action of the enzymes breaking down the oatmeal. This is what AIM PrepZymes does for the foods you eat!

How to use PrepZymes
  • To aid in digestion, take 1 capsule before or during each meal. You may take more or less depending on your needs.

  • Shelf life is 3 years, sealed. Store in a cool, dry, dark place (70-75 F; 20.1-23.8 C). Do not refrigerate.

Q & A

Who should use PrepZymes ?
If you believe that you are not digesting foods well, you should use digestive enzymes. In addition, we have fewer enzymes as we age, so we should always consider using digestive enzymes as we grow older.

May children and pregnant women use PrepZymes ?
Yes, they can. Both children and pregnant women should take the usual adult serving of one capsule before or during each meal.

Is there anyone who should not take PrepZymes ?
Yes, it is recommended that those with gastritis or gastric/duodenal ulcers not use AIM PrepZymes.

If we take enzymes orally, aren't they distroyed by the stomach acid before they do anything ?
According to Santillo, this is not true. In his book Food Enzymes, he cites university research that has shown that supplemental enzymes pass through the stomach uninjured. In one study, the enzyme amylase digested starch in the stomach and then moved into the small intestine, where it continued digestion.

Santillo also notes that foods are predigested by enzymes in the upper portion of the stomach, which is known as the cardiac stomach. According to Gray’s Anatomy, "The cardiac portion of the stomach is a food reservoir in which salivary digestion continues. The pyloric [lower stomach] portion is the seat of active gastric digestion."

What is the source of the enzymes found in PrepZymes ?
The enzymes found in
AIM PrepZymes are cultured from Aspergillus niger and Aspergillus oryzac, two types of fungi.

How many active units does each enzyme have ?
PrepZymes was specially designed to meet specific needs, and the exact amount of active units for each enzyme is proprietary information.

May I take PrepZymes with FloraFood ?
Yes, although not at the same time.
FloraFood should be taken on an empty stomach, 30 minutes before or two hours after a meal. PrepZymes should be taken just before or during meals.

May I take PrepZymes with other AIM products?
Yes, you may.
