High-Potency Protease enhances protein digestion and increases nutrient absorption, supporting the immune, digestive and circulatory systems.

From Nature's Sunshine - Enzymes that break down proteins shells. Undigested proteins have been linked to a variety of unsavory health concerns.



  • Enhances protein digestion.
  • Provides trace minerals.
  • Supports the digestive system.

How It Works:

Enzymes are essential for digestion and normal metabolic function. Enzymes that break down proteins are especially critical to good health because undigested and foreign proteins can impact your overall health. Taken with meals, High-Potency Protease helps digest high-protein foods. This product delivers 180,000 HUT protease that breaks down proteins at pH levels from 3.0 to 6.0. It also contains a full spectrum of plant-derived trace minerals. One capsule of High-Potency Protease provides the same benefits as three capsules of Protease Plus.


Protease (180,000 HUT), beet root fiber and trace mineral concentrate.

Recommended Use:

Take 1 capsule between meals up to three times daily.



High Potency is "3" times Stronger than the regular Protease Plus.

This High-Potency Protease delivers 180,000 HUT's (Hemoglobin units, tyrosine basis) with a full spectrum of trace minerals.

Doctors agree that as we grow older, our bodies are able to produce fewer enzymes. Enzymes that break down proteins are especially critical to good health because undigested proteins have been linked to a variety of unsavory health concerns.

Proteases are a type of digestive enzyme that is designed to break down proteins into smaller proteins and amino acids. Protease enzymes are found in the stomach and in the pancreatic and intestinal juices. They are especially important because they break down proteins into amino acids.

Any time a deficiency of protease exists, proteins can go through the intestinal tract and remain undigested. At the same time, malabsorption of nutrients and chronic health conditions increase.

Taking supplemental enzymes can help to ensure that the body receives full nutritional value from food intake.

SCIENTIFIC SUPPORT: Studies show that protease helps keep the intestines protected from parasites and other organisms that may weaken the intestinal system.

INGREDIENTS: Each capsule of NSP Protease Plus contains: 60,000 HUT protease in a base of beetroot fiber and full spectrum plant-sourced trace mineral concentrate.


Choice 1

Take 1 capsule with a meal, three times daily.

Choice 2

To maximize its ability to break down protein invaders in the bloodstream: should be taken on an empty stomach. Take one to three daily between meals.

When food enters the stomach, hydrochloric acid and digestive enzymes break down food into molecules and substances that the body can assimilate. From there, the food moves to the small intestine, where it comes in contact with digestive juices secreted by the gallbladder and pancreas.

Enzymes are proteins that act as catalysts, they accelerate and precipitate any biochemical reaction that is part of the body processes.

Other comments from(other) informed sources (Stephen Horne)

In 1998, Joan Vandergriff's father was diagnosed with stage four lymphoma and given two weeks to live. That wasnt acceptable to Joan. She put aside her natural health practice for several months and began the full-time endeavor to save her father's life. The outcome of her research was not only her father becoming cancer free, but also this amazing product by NSP, Protease Plus, as well as another NSP product, Nature's Immune Stimulator.

Here is what Joans study brought out.

Many illnesses, both acute and chronic, begin with the digestive system and a lack of enzymes. When we are born, we have plenty of enzymes, but by the time we are 70, we may only have 20% of the enzymes we were born with.

The digestive system should function like a smoothly flowing river that has fresh, clean water with no debris. But like a river that gets stopped up, the digestive system can become like a "swamp," in that it becomes sluggish and prone to the growth of unfriendly microorganisms. Enzymes are used in ponds, pools and sewer systems to degrade and clear out debris and algae by balancing the pH of the water.

It works the same in our bodies.

No enzymes and an unbalanced pH, whether in a pond or in the body, means unhealthy conditions.

Enzyme action begins when food substances first enter the mouth, continues in the stomach, then the small intestine, pancreas and liver before the digestive process moves to the large intestines,

The pancreas produces protease, which is designed to break down proteins into smaller proteins and amino acids. Protease enzymes are also found in the stomach and the intestinal fluids.

When a deficiency of protease exists, proteins can remain undigested as they move through the intestinal tract. This also contributes to malabsorption of nutrients and many chronic health problems.

Since studies have shown that protease also helps to counteract parasites, viruses and other organisms that can weaken the intestinal systems it stands to reason that when protease levels are abnormally low these problems will proliferate.

Drs. Gonzales and Isaacs of New York have recently published their pioneering work on pancreatic cancer and the connection that taking pancreatic enzyme supplementation, together with an intensive natural health-care program, can cure cancer. According to Dr. Gonzales, the single most important part of their program for preventing cancer, is to take pancreatic enzymes.

Lack of protease enzymes can be a causal factor, in a wide variety of symptoms, among them are aching joints, allergies-both food and sinus - autoimmune disorders, back weakness, bacterial infections, candidiasis, constipation, diarrhea, fungal and yeast infestations, gum disorders, hearing problems, hepatitis/liver disorders, herpes, hormonal imbalances, parasites, sinusitis, skin eruptions, sports injuries, urinary infections, viruses, and weakened immunity.

Adequate enzymes in the body are the key to living longer and better with plenty of energy. Protease breaks down protein-based invaders in the blood stream leaving them vulnerable for destruction by the immune system;

Parasites, fungi and bacteria are all protein-based organisms.

Viruses have a protein-based film covering the nucleic acids inside them, Protease breaks up these proteins so the immune system can do its job of destroying them and clearing them out of the body.

Enzymes are known to accelerate the healing process and the formation of new, healthy tissue. Hundreds of studies have been done that show pancreatic enzymes act quickly to reduce inflammation and swelling of sports injuries.

Enzymes are completely safe-there are no drug reactions.

Protease Plus, in addition to 60,000 HUT protease, also contains a concentrate of full-spectrum plant-derived trace-minerals to help activate the enzymes, which can double their activity in breaking down proteins.


Protease Plus may be taken safely by children, but in smaller doses.

For children, mix the desired dosage of powder from the capsule with liquid. Base the decrease in the amount of powder used according to the child's age and body weight.

Protease Plus should be taken on an empty stomach to maximize its ability to break down protein invaders in the bloodstream. Take one to three daily between meals.

CAUTION: Start with small doses and work up, as this product can create a healing crisis.
