What are Systemic Enzymes?
Many of us are familiar with the digestive enzymes found in the stomach and intestines; they process the various foods we eat. However, other types of enzymes are reaction-causing agents which make breathing, growth, healing and other body functions possible.
Enzymes more than just sustain life, they are catalysts for virtually every biological and chemical reaction in the body. Without enzymes, life itself could not exist. As we age however, our own internal enzyme production significantly declines. The enzymes we need to maintain healthy joints, a strong immune system, normal circulation and overall balanced well-being are less available.*
During the aging process, the natural production of enzymes begins to slow down. As we further mature our reduced enzyme levels make us subject to enzyme deficiencies. This can lead to wide variety of health issues, including unhealthy amounts of fibrin accumulating in our joints, our blood and veins and throughout our system.*Why are Systemic Enzymes Important?
Systemic enzymes operate throughout every system and organ in our body. Unlike digestive enzymes found in the gastrointestinal tract, systemic enzymes create or accelerate biochemical reactions. Basically, they are “agents of change”.
Unlike the digestive enzymes found in the stomach and intestines which are responsible for processing food. Published research indicates that Systemic Enzymes are reaction-causing agents allowing cells to regenerate, enable breathing, healing and make other body functions possible. They are often also known as Proteolytic Enzymes.*
Proteolytic Enzymes Explained
Proteolytic enzymes (meaning "protein-dissolving") often in the form of Serrapeptase are ubiquitous in nature. They are found in animals, plants, bacteria, and fungi. Human beings produce enzymes to help digest our food, but we also produce numerous other types, which act to control virtually every regulatory mechanism in our bodies. These complex enzymes breakdown and digest proteins into fragments.
Recent scientific evidence supports the use of proteolytic enzyme supplements for enhancing digestive function and for speeding recovery from injury/surgery and maintaining normal, healthy levels of inflammation.
Protease is one form of proteolytic enzyme which demonstrates such an ability. Its role is critical as incomplete protein digestion creates problems for the body including the development of allergies and the formation of toxins. Undigested proteins have been linked to many health concerns, including foreign invaders in the intestinal tract. Some of these foreign invaders are parasites. Protease is largely responsible for keeping the small intestines free from parasites. A lack of protease increases the risk of intestinal infection including an overgrowth of the yeast Candida. Protease also delivers the specific nutrients necessary to promote healthy muscle tissue and vibrant immune system function.*
