About Us

Lifestyle Enzymes are passionate about your health

Who is Lifestyle Enzymes?

Lifestyle Enzymes is an Australian owned and operated family wholesale distribution business that specialises in digestive enzymes. We are based in Noosaville, Queensland and service health food stores, pharmacies and healthcare practitioners.

We passionately believe that Digestive Enzymes are vital to ensure proper nutrition by means of improved digestion, an essential building block to restore people to good health.

The founder of Lifestyle Enzymes, Robert C McIlroy ND (retired), practiced in Noosa Heads for over nineteen years, and used Digestive Enzymes as a primary therapy in his clinic for over fifteen years. By various means of testing and using a questionnaire process, Robert found the majority of his patients, including small children, were showing signs of being enzyme deficient. This enzyme deficiency can be inherited and/or individually developed as a result of poor diets which consist of mostly cooked and highly processed foods, and through stress.

In this day and age of fast-food diets and busy lifestyles it is very important to support the digestive process in every way possible.

Kerri Jensen

Our history

DID YOU KNOW that there would not be any approved digestive enzymes available for sale in Australia if it had not been for the vision and dedication of our founder, Robert McIlroy? Robert’s belief in digestive enzymes and the benefits of enzyme therapy meant he worked tirelessly to have Amylase, Protease, Lipase, Cellulase and Tilactase approved for the Australian market place, a process which took several years to achieve. This process became the cornerstone of our business.

In 2016 Kerri Jensen, and her husband, Wayne, purchased Lifestyle Enzymes from Robert when he retired. Kerri has worked alongside Robert for 15 years in all aspects of the business and shares Robert’s passion and belief in enzyme therapy by seeing firsthand the rewarding improvement of patients in Robert’s clinic who suffered from all sorts of ailments by the simple remedy of taking digestive enzymes. As Robert also developed his own proprietary enzyme formulas for health practitioners, Kerri was closely involved in growing and transitioning the business from a very successful practitioner clinic through to an equally successful distribution business Australia-wide and throughout New Zealand.
