back-ordered on TriEnza. The next
shipment should be ready around November

What is TriEnza?
- the enzymes from AFP-Peptizyde for proteins
- the enzymes from Zyme Prime for carbohydrates,
fats, and proteins
- half the enzymes from No-Fenol (Xylanase) for
and vegetables high in phenols
- high DPP IV activity for gluten and casein
Our next shipment will have a slight formula
change from the first shipment. At customers'
requests, there will be an increase in the amount of
enzymes for protein. It will include the full
complement of proteases (for proteins) from the
Zyme Prime formula.
Who should use TriEnza?
Anyone who uses 2 or more of our current
products (Peptizyde, AFP-Peptizyde, Zyme Prime,
Prime, and No-Fenol) will most likely benefit

gluteomorphin and casomorphin and may be an
alternative to the GFCF (gluten-free,

| "The Missing Piece of the Puzzle"
by Mary Ann Mood
While researching how to help my then 7-year-old son
with digestive, sleep, and behavior issues, I stumbled
onto some articles regarding enzymes and decided
they were worth a try. I bought some enzymes at the
local health food store and didn't see any
improvement. So I decided to try Houston
Nutraceuticals - I had seen them mentioned in my
Within days of putting our son on Zyme Prime and
Peptizyde we saw changes in behavior. My son
immediately started sleeping through the night. He
hadn't slept through the night on any type of regular
basis his entire life! After a few weeks on enzymes,
he seemed much more in control of himself and more
able to cope with frustration.
Within a few months he started eating a greater variety
of foods. He now eats fish - not fish sticks, but actual
fish - sea bass and salmon. And he started putting
lettuce on his burgers and tacos - something green -
A year later we are still using the enzymes. Anytime I
have gotten lazy in giving them to him or have forgotten
to order them - we see the behavior decline within a
day or so. He gets agitated a lot easier and just can't
recover when he gets frustrated. And the sleep gets
completely thrown off - he has a much harder time
falling asleep. It's like he can't turn his body off - it
just needs to keep moving.
Would I recommend enzymes to other parents?
My friend and I run a support group for parents of
children with sensory processing disorders. I am
pleased to let everyone know that Dr.Houston recently
came and spoke to our support group in September at
our request - at no charge. I am still getting emails
about how much people appreciated him coming out.
I can't thank Dr. Houston enough - I feel like we found
the missing piece of the puzzle for our son.
