- Supplements enzymes from the pancreas, where production declines with age.
- Helps digest protein.
- Offers enteric coating that protects enzymes from harsh stomach acids.
- May benefit athletes by speeding recovery from injury and exercise.
The body utilizes several methods to help it release nutrients from the foods we eat. Physical actions such as chewing and tearing by the teeth or working of stomach muscles begin the process, while enzymes added at different points complete the digestion and release important nutrients. Normally the body can produce enough enzymes for the job.
Additional enzymes can be provided through raw vegetables and fruits. But diets do not always include fresh vegetables, and cooked vegetables lack active enzymes. In addition, usually by the late 20s, the body’s enzyme supplies begin to drop off. Many people may benefit from enzyme supplementation.
Systemic Enzyme Blend is a systemic blend of proteolytic enzymes. The blend includes pancreatin, trypsin, and chymostrypsin, which are all produced by the pancreas, as well as bromelain from pineapple and papain from papaya. The chief function of proteolytic enzymes is the breakdown of protein.
As protein is broken down, amino acids are released. These are the building blocks for new protein in the body in the form of muscles and other tissues.
The word systemic means body wide. Systemic enzymes are not just for digestion; they are used throughout the body in every system and organ. Proteolytic enzymes also offer anti-inflammatory and pain-relief benefits. In European studies the use of proteolytic enzymes sped up the recovery time of injury and exercise. More study is needed before specific health benefits can be established.
The highly acidic conditions in the stomach can deactivate enzymes if they are not properly protected. Systemic Enzyme Blend tablets feature an enteric coating that protects them from the acid and ensure their activity in the intestines.
