- Systemic approach to proper enzyme levels throughout the body
- Enzymes are necessary for life
- Serrapeptase may help dissolve fibrin, chief component of blood clots.
- Proteolytic enzymes help reduce inflammation and pain and support quicker healing
- Protease, Amylase, Lipase help digest food and release nutrients and energy
- Diets lack raw, fresh vegetables, another source of enzymes
Most people do not give enzymes a second thought yet they are vital for your health. Enzymes are proteins that cause chemical reactions to speed up. Scientists have identified nearly 4,000 chemical reactions in the body that rely on enzymes. They are necessary for nearly every process in the biological cell if it is to occur at significant rates. They are necessary for life itself! Enzymes are central to the digestive process, helping to break down the foods we eat, releasing energy and nutrients. When enzymes are in short supply improper digestion can result and lead to poor absorption of nutrients as well as problems like stomach disorders, bowel problems, gas, nausea, and allergies to certain foods.
While the body can produce most of the enzymes needed for these chemical reactions, its ability to adequately meet demands begins to decline after age 27. Historically our need for additional enzymes was met by eating raw, fresh vegetables, but these items are often missing in diets today and modern processing methods kill most enzymes in processed foods. To ensure proper enzyme levels we may need to supplement our diet much like we do with vitamins, minerals, and other herbal products.
Vitalzym is a unique proprietary blend of beneficial enzymes designed to support good health. Using pure high-potency enzymes instead of extracts, Vitalzym is a natural product containing no lactose or talc. It also is free of animal products, artificial flavors, yeast or gluten. The enzyme has an enteric coating to allow it to survive environments that otherwise would destroy it.
Vitalzym’s proprietary blend provides a systemic approach to enzyme therapy raising enzyme levels throughout the body.
Serrapeptase is a unique enzyme supplied by Vitalzym. It is found in nature in the digestive system of the silkworm which uses it to dissolve the silk cocoon. Doctors in both Europe and Asia have prescribed serrapeptase for more than 25 years for several reasons. First, serrapeptase is a fibrinolytic. In this capacity it helps remove fibrin, the chief element of blood clots, from the blood stream. Secondly, serrapeptase is an anti-inflammatory and can prevent associated pain. Thirdly, the enzyme helps minimize fluid retention and swelling.
Protease, like serrapeptase, is a proteolytic enzyme assisting the digestion of protein. Proteolytic enzymes provide other valuable benefits in addition to breaking down protein. These benefits come from their anti-inflammatory and pain relieving capacities. Extensive studies conducted in Europe confirmed proteolytics sped up recovery from exercise or injury. Bruises and other tissue injuries in athletes responded more rapidly when proteolytic enzymes were part of the regimen. Proteolytic enzymes reduced swelling, bruising, and stiffness in patients undergoing facial or reconstructive surgery.
Bromelain and papain are both plant enzymes. Bromelain is found in pineapple and papain in papaya. Papain has the features associated with proteolytic enzymes but also has the ability to prevent burn wound infections and accelerate wound healing in general. Bromelain helps reduce platelet clumping providing benefit to individuals who may be susceptible to heart attacks or strokes. Its ability to reduce swelling and inflammation may benefit arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome sufferers.
Amylase and lipase are two enzymes which occur naturally in the body. Amylase breaks down carbohydrates helping convert starch into usable energy. Lipase helps digest fats making them available to the body through the blood stream.
Amla, also called Indian Gooseberry, is a fruit with one of the highest concentrations of Vitamin C. It is purported to have restorative and preventive properties.
Rutin is a flavonoid which contributes to capillary strength.
