What makes AFC Ultimate Enzyme superior in its ability to be fully digested and absorbed?
AFC Ultimate Enzyme is a premium enzyme drink that has undergone 2 years of fermentation and maturation. This results in all the nutrients being broken down into smaller molecules for optimal absorption by the body.
Instead of using white sugar, Okinawa brown sugar is used in the culturing process, which retains the enzymes more than those cultured using white sugar.
During the fermentation process, large amount of lactic acid bacteria is produced which supports digestion. The low acidity of the drink prevents valuable enzymes from being destroyed by gastric juices.
Can enzymes be used for healthy weight management?
Enzyme drinks are usually low in calories and high in full spectrum of nutrients. Taking it before meals helps in digestion and nutrient absorption.
Lipase is the enzyme that breaks down (digests) fat. When added to your meal as a supplement, it is able to perform this function in the digestive tract. To further enhance the effect of weight reduction, one may follow a diet plan, replacing unhealthy, high-calorie food intake with an enzyme drink for desirable results.
Can I make and consume DIY enzyme drinks?
Yes. However, there are some precautions you need to consider.
The process of fermentation and maturation of enzymes is a delicate one. Home-made fermented drink is susceptible to contamination from harmful bacteria and mold due to mis-handling and may affect the safety of the final product. Incomplete and inappropriate fermentation and maturation methods can result in home-made enzyme drinks developing into alcohol.
Moreover, the selection of raw ingredients are limited to few types of common fruits and vegetables. The cutting and preparation methods may result in oxidation and hence, compromise the nutrition value.
Are there side effects resulting from enzyme drink consumption? Can it be taken daily?
Some people may experience nausea, skin rashes, and changes in bowel movement patterns. These are normal responses to the therapeutic effect of the enzyme drink. In general, these symptoms will disappear after 10 days or when the body has adjusted well to the therapeutic effects.
Taking enzyme drinks is recommended as part of our daily dietary habit to support health, beauty and longevity.
Are enzyme drinks suitable for children?
Yes, especially if the child has a weak body disposition, poor appetite or imbalanced diet.
1-3 years : 5ml + 50ml water/juice
4-7 years : 10ml - 15ml + 100ml water/juice
“My skin rashes reduced significantly and the itch is gone!”
I had a 14-day body detox regime in October 2015; during which I consumed only fruits and vegetables smoothies. Then I decided to include AFC Ultimate Enzyme to my menu for variety. Throughout the 14 days, I drank 90ml of AFC Ultimate Enzyme 3 times a day. I realised that adding AFC Ultimate Enzyme to my diet makes me more energetic. I didn’t feel hungry at all, and still have the energy for exercise. Prior to the regime, I had rashes on my skin which required traditional Chinese medicine once a week to ease the itch. On the first week after I started on AFC Ultimate Enzyme, I found that my rashes were under control, I didn’t need any medication. As I progressed into the second week with AFC Ultimate Enzyme as part of my diet, I saw that my rashes had reduced significantly and no longer itched. My skin had healed naturally on its own without any medication. I’m really inspired by the effects of AFC Ultimate Enzyme on me, it had improved my immune system. I would recommend this wonderful supplement to my friends and share with them to add it to their meals. I love AFC Ultimate Enzyme, I am still taking 30 ml every morning for health maintenance. Thank you AFC!

Enzymes are essentially the backbone of proper nutrition and digestion. They are the bio-catalysts for the functioning of many important bodily activities such as digestion, circulation, healing, detoxification and metabolism.
The amount of the enzymes in the body is also closely related to the body's health, rate of ageing and susceptibility to diseases. Therefore, the higher the level of enzymes in the body would also mean the healthier we will be.
3 Types of Enzymes
Food Enzymes (External): Exist naturally in raw food.
Digestive Enzymes (Internal): Found in the digestive system to help breakdown proteins, fats and carbohydrates in food. Need to be replenished through food intake and supplementation.
Metabolic Enzymes (Internal): Present in liver and all living body cells to support cellular metabolism. Need to be replenished through food intake and supplementation.
Poor / Imbalanced diet
Cooking and processing destroy enzymes present in food. Modern diet containing canned food, fast food and processed food do not contain enzymes. As a result, most people are lacking in enzymes, leading to health problems.
Contaminants & Additives
In order to react to additional contaminants in polluted air, water, additives and pesticide-contaminated food, enzyme use is sped up, which leads to enzyme exhaustion.
The human body makes its own internal enzymes, the amount of which is dependent on genes and age. Our body produces lesser enzymes as we age.
Stressful and hectic lifestyles deplete more enzymes without giving time for our bodies to regenerate worn out and damaged cells and tissues or to keep our body systems strong.
A person with compromised health conditions and taking excess antibiotics requires extra enzymes to fight against the illness in order to maintain healthy bodily functions.
Supports Digestion And Nutrient Absorption
Digestion is the foundation of health. Enzymes are the backbone of proper nutrition and digestion. The body’s ability to digest, absorb and utilize nutrients depends on the presence of enzymes.
All foods serve little functions in the body until they can be broken down into smaller molecules to be fully absorbed and utilized by the body.
Researchers found that many toxins derived from incomplete digestion of food, accumulates in the intestines and blood, causing poor circulation and burden other vital internal organs. Enzymes play a critical role to ensure that foods are digested completely.
Enzymes are responsible in the removal of old cells that may interrupt your body’s normal metabolic processes. It also helps in digestion of food to prevent undigested food from accumulating as toxins in our body. An optimum level of enzyme stores in the body will efficiently remove and counteract waste products and toxins.
An acidic body constitution may leads to a weakened immunity and health. It is important to maintain a slightly alkaline body pH for optimal health. Enzymes help to maintain acid/alkaline balance.
Reduces Risk Of Chronic Diseases
Enzymes help to strengthen our cells and enhance our body’s resistance against bacterial infections by eliminating the buildup of toxins that challenges our immune system. Hence, a person with low enzymes level may be more susceptible to degenerative diseases. A person with weak immunity or those suffering from chronic illnesses will also require more enzymes than a healthy individual to promote recovery.
Enzymes help to relieve the burden of vital organs by aiding the breakdown and absorption of food that our body need to remain healthy and energized. By giving your body its maximum ability to absorb nutrients, this helps to elevate and increase one’s physical vitality and energy stores.
Clinically Proven Health Benefits of Ultimate Enzyme
Case study on the beneficial effect of Ultimate Enzyme on bowel movement, skin hydration level and total wellbeing
Study conducted on a group of 15 Japanese females, aged 20 to 49 years old who have constipation issues and dry skin.
Female subjects were asked to consume 30ml of Ultimate Enzyme, twice a day (after breakfast and dinner) for 8 weeks. The results showed significant improvement in bowel movement (better frequency and stool quality) after the consumption of Ultimate Enzyme. Better skin hydration and improvement in overall health was also observed.
1. Selection Of Raw Foods
106 top-quality whole, uncut raw ingredients are carefully selected and prepared.
2. Rinsing Of Raw Foods
Chlorine-free water is used to thoroughly wash the ingredients, no chemical detergent is involved.
3. Obtain Extract
Whole foods are placed in fiberglass barrels and fermented using Okinawa brown sugar. (Okinawa brown sugar is used instead of white sugar; this improves dissolving of cell materials of raw ingredients and facilitate furthers fermentation. Therefore, better quality and quantity of enzymes can be achieved.)
4. Full Fermentation Of The Extract (1 year)
Essences are being leached out instead of squeezing out to retain nutrients from each ingredient. (During the fermentation process, prestigious live bacteria “pre-digest” the nutrients, giving the drink a unique taste and elevating the enzyme levels.)
5. Aged Maturation Of The Extract (1 year)
In order to obtain purer and more concentrated botanical juice, at least 180days of maturation is required. No additives (preservatives, colouring and flavouring) are added. (Thousands of types of enzymes are collected, containing abundant essential amino acids, vitamins, minerals and active ingredients)
6. Filling, Sterilization And Packaging
Stringent control in filling, sterilisation and packing.
“While our bodies naturally produce these digestive enzymes, the ability to do so decreases significantly with age and lifestyle factors. With modern taste preferences for cooked and processed foods, essential enzymes found in raw food sources are destroyed by the cooking process. At the same time, the body is required to channel more digestive enzymes towards the breaking down of complex and processed food. The lack of enzymes together with the additional load on the body to digest complex food creates stress on the body and manifests into chronic health problems.”
