Natural Enzyme's Role in Optimal Health Detailed in New Book

User-Friendly Book, "Enzymes: What the Experts Know," Available Nationwide

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla., August 22, 2006 – Enzyme expert Tom Bohager announced today the release of his book, "Enzymes: What the Experts Know," which discusses the role of enzyme therapy in restoring, promoting and maintaining optimal health. Published by One World Press, the book is available in select health food stores nationwide and has a suggested retail price of $14.95.

Bohager presents the science of enzymes at an understandable level by explaining the basics of enzymes, including: what they are, their history and the differences between animal and plant-based enzymes.
The book also includes information on the various health conditions enzyme therapy can address, criteria to determine the quality and potency of available enzyme supplements and an "enzyme deficiency test" that allows readers to obtain a profile of their past and present nutritional habits as they relate to the enzyme levels within the body.

The book's release is timely as enzymes are becoming more popular amongst both health-savvy and mainstream consumers. Digestive aids and enzyme sales in natural supermarkets grew from $85.3 million to
$98.9 million over the last year. In relation to the 5.1 percent increase the total supplement industry experienced from May 2005 through May 2006, the digestive aids and enzymes category grew an impressive 17.8 percent.

"I hope that readers gain a better understanding of enzymes and how they can benefit their everyday health," said author Tom Bohager. "This book is designed for use as an everyday resource that addresses many health issues."

The book has already received accolades from fellow health authors. Harvey Diamond, the author of "Fit for Life," said it is "the most useful and comprehensive book on the subject of enzymes available today." Author of "Enzymes for Autism and other Neurological Conditions," Karen DeFelice, said, "The author does an excellent job of walking that fine line of giving information specific enough to be useful and relevant while at the same time not being totally tied to specific product recommendations."
