I'll confine my remarks to the observation that enzymes are proteins, and the notion that a protein can be bioactive after digestion is just silly.

Peptidases might help with digestion..... but no way are they getting inside the body.

The description is flat out wrong. If proteins had inflammatory decreasing effects they would help out by downstream effects on joints, muscles, etc (like fish oil for example) but peptidases don't really do that so....... yeah.

Do not buy.
