Our Vision: To be a catalyst for improved global nutrition and immune health.
Our Mission: Through research and development of nutritional supplements, we aim to unlock the benefits of nutrient absorption and strengthen human potential.
GoodPhyte was developed by Amy Puzey: a holistic nutritionist, competitive trail runner, and past CEO of 5Peaks Trail Running Canada. Amy lives in Invermere, British Columbia, Canada and she has been passionate about health, wellness and competitive trail running all of her life. In 2009, Amy was the Canadian Mountain Running Champion and represented Canada twice at the World Mountain Running Trophy on the Canadian Mountain Running team.
Amy began her education in nursing at University of Alberta and a few years into her degree realized she wanted to work on the preventative side of health and switched to study holistic nutrition. She became a holistic nutritionist in 2005 and CEO and National Race Director of 5Peaks in 2013 to take the Canadian trail running community to the next level. She sold 5Peaks in 2021 to fully dedicate herself to Goodphyte.
In 2008, Amy started researching how the enzyme phytase could neutralize the anti-nutrient, phytate, and the result is GoodPhyte. While not all GoodPhyte customers are athletes, this innovative digestive enzyme has found a beloved home within that community, with many customers reporting marked improvements to their ability to train and perform.
How does GoodPhyte work?
It uses phytase to counteract the anti-nutrient phytate.
Phytate is present on ALL grains, nuts, beans, and seeds. Think of it like a self-protective coating that plants use to stop their seeds from being eaten before they have a chance to sprout. Phytate can make you feel bloated and uncomfortable, can impair your use of amino acids and protein, and, even more importantly, block you from absorbing important nutrients like zinc, iron, magnesium, and calcium. While ruminants like cattle, sheep, and deer have stomachs that can deplete phytate, we humans with only one stomach, need some extra help. Phytase — the key ingredient in GoodPhyte — is the enzyme which breaks down phytate, giving you access to those nutrients.
You’re doing all the right things, but you still don’t feel right — blame phytate
Even though we try hard to eat well, exercise, and get enough sleep, feeling depleted, exhausted and bloated is a daily reality for many. No matter what we do, we still don’t feel good. That’s because the phytate in our diet is causing digestive discomfort, and it’s also preventing us from absorbing the nutrients from our food or our vitamin supplements — hence the low energy. Without the ability to absorb zinc, iron, calcium, magnesium and amino acids, our everyday health can be severely impacted.
There are two ways to dissolve phytate:
Soak, sprout, slow-cook, or ferment your food ahead of time. This can remove 50%-70% of phytate from your food. It’s a great option, but can be challenging with a busy schedule and it still doesn't counteract all the phytate.
Take 1-3 GoodPhyte capsules per day to counteract all the phytate in your food. Everyone’s dose is different and depends on your diet. Vegans typically need 3-4 capsules of phytase per day, whereas omnivores may only need 1-2.
Why take a digestive enzyme?
Digestion takes up to 70% of your energy in a day.
That’s a lot, and it’s important to make sure your body is working as efficiently as it can. Enzymes are the catalysts for every reaction in your body, and are present in freshly picked raw vegetables and fresh meat. Our gut bacteria also produce some enzymes. Many of us eat large amounts of cooked food, previously frozen food, and not enough raw foods. And even when we do eat the ‘right’ things like pulses and lentils, the presence of phytate can hinder digestion. That means we’re not getting the micronutrients we need. Our bodies need a low-stress environment to work well and they also need access to nutrients in our foods to be our best and healthiest selves.
If you regularly find yourself run down, have low energy or deal with occasional digestive discomfort, bloating or indigestion, consider setting yourself up for digestive success, by taking GoodPhyte to make the nutrients in your food and vitamins bioavailable.
What makes our digestive enzyme different?
Why choose GoodPhyte over another supplement?
GoodPhyte is different from other enzymes and supplements but you don’t have to choose, as it actually makes all other vitamin supplements more effective:
Phytase allows other vitamin supplements to reach their full potential in the body, while also making minerals in food more bioavailable.
We aren’t competing with other supplements, we’re supporting them. Keep taking your other supplements and vitamins as your health practitioner recommended. See how your energy levels, sleep levels, and stomach health improves with time.
Even for people who don’t (or can’t) take vitamins or supplements, our phytase enzyme gives you full access to the nutrients naturally present in your food. It also allows you to access the endogenous (meaning inside the body) pool of zinc. Zinc is known to be a critical piece of a strong immune system.
“I started taking GoodPhyte in August. Since I have started taking GoodPhyte, I have had the first diarrhea free month in well over 20 years. I have more energy and am working at a higher level at work. To say I am excited is an understatement.”
“Since starting GoodPhyte my ferritin has stabilized around the 90's (without infusions) my recovery/energy has never been better. I seriously have not felt this good in years. Honestly I'm so grateful for this product because I truly believe this gave me my life back.“
“I started taking GoodPhyte six weeks ago and noticed the change within two weeks. I wasn't groggy in the morning and felt rested, my body seemed to respond better to clean foods (no bloat) and I was fuller faster and able to transition to smaller meals throughout the day. I finally feel like I am getting my feet back under me!”
“GoodPhyte has allowed my body to maximize the energy provided by the healthy meals I take so much care and love preparing for myself and family. This has been a game changer for my health, my family and workplace. Life is too wonderful to sleep through. Consider giving GoodPhyte a try to see if you can feel even better than you do now.”
“Almost immediately I felt more energy earlier in the day. I started drinking WAY less coffee than normal. This is amazing news as my stomach had been wrecked from all the coffee. Once I started taking two a day, I started noticing even more benefits. This month I have felt very little in the way of PMS mood swings and bloating. Also bloating after eating has decreased and it feels great. No more rush to get the work pants off because I am about to explode. Thank you!”
“Just finishing my period, and I had wayyyy less breast tenderness the week before, wayyyy less cramping throughout, and no discomfort during. TMI, but I often get somewhat tender “down there” during the heaviest parts and I didn’t at all this time. Actually, it really wasn't even as heavy as usual.”
“I am a believer in this product!!! I haven't had an inflammatory flare for many weeks now and my energy has increased by at least 50% and I contribute that to my diet and the enzyme that allows my body to utilize the foods I put into it. I wish I had known about this stuff sooner!”
“I've been using GoodPhyte now for a month and definitely feel more sustained and steady energy throughout my day. The best benefit I've found so far is that when my son, and husband, who aren't taking GoodPhyte yet, both got a really bad cold this month, myself and my daughter (who are taking it) completely avoided it.”
“I have been taking GoodPhyte daily now for over 2 months and I am actually surprised how much better I am feeling. It was subtle for me. My digestive system started to feel better. I noticed that I was more regular. My energy levels started to creep up. It is hard to put my finger on it, but I am not feeling the mid afternoon/evening fatigue anymore!”
“After a month of using GoodPhyte I’ve noticed at least a 60% increase in my energy levels, particularly toward the end of my workday. I no longer have a 2-3 p.m. crash and have energy at 5 p.m. to run, lift, and go shopping. At first I didn’t see a significant change in my energy, but after timing the GoodPhyte more closely to my meal times, I started to feel the benefits. On a scale of 1-10, I’d say my afternoon energy is usually a 4-5 and lately has been more like an 8.”
"I totally notice a difference and have noticed for over a week. Napping no longer runs my life! I got through my days by thinking about when my next nap would be. Now that I take GoodPhyte, I don’t need to nap AT ALL any more and I have way more energy. I haven't napped for over a week. I would say my energy levels have gone from a 2 to a 9 in just a few weeks."
“Trying to maximize nutrition and energy can be hard, especially as I’m always on the go. I’ve only been taking GoodPhyte for a month now and am surprised at how much more sustained energy I have throughout the day. My energy and alertness are consistent day to day and my runners gut has settled down. I am extremely happy and thankful to have added GoodPhyte to my diet and lifestyle because it has only helped me be a better father, fire fighter and athlete.”
“I'm 62 years old. I started taking your product in July of 2022. At the time, I was in such a bad place that I couldn't even leave the house without a diaper on. Within 5 days of starting your product, my flares stopped and I haven't had a single one since then. I've tried every diet on the planet, and nothing has worked until now. And now I can eat absolutely anything and I still don't flare! I can't thank you enough for this product. It has given me my life back!”
“GoodPhyte has given me quality of life back so I can enjoy my kids and my farm without being constantly tired, sore and worn down.”
“About 2 years ago, I started taking GoodPhyte. My overall health has significantly improved. I have been able to become more physically active, experienced a lot of energy and gained back some weight. I am a busy dad with three kids and I run my own company. I like to workout regularly and chase my kids around. GoodPhyte has allowed me to live my life.”
“As a runner who has suffered low Ferritin for at least 10 years I knew this was a product I had to try. Once I started using GoodPhyte I started to notice an increase in my energy levels.”
“Shawn and I started taking GoodPhyte about 4 months ago. I have struggled my entire life with lack of energy, depression and anxiety. I increased the amount I was taking about 3 weeks ago because I think I may need to just get to a “normal” level before I can say I am truly feeling better but I have noticed I am gradually doing better. I know it’s not an overnight night recovery for me so I am steadfast on keeping this as part of my healing process and am hopeful for the first time in a long time.”
“Seriously worth checking out if you have inflammation issues , stomach issues or you just want to feel more energy!”
