Anti-Nutrients, Phytates and GoodPhyte with Amy Puzey

Who is Amy Puzey and what is her mission?? 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 enzyme has found a beloved home within that community, with many customers reporting marked improvements to their ability to train, perform and recover much faster than they could without it.

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.
