Systemic Enzyme Blend

by Vitabase

  • Provides important enzymes that may decline with age
  • Proteolytic enzymes help digest protein and release amino acids
  • Offers anti-inflammatory and pain relief
  • May speed injury and exercise recovery time benefiting athletes
  • Enteric coating protects enzymes from harsh stomach acid

The body utilizes several methods to help it release nutrients from the foods we eat. Physical actions like chewing and tearing by teeth or the working of stomach muscles begin the process while enzymes are added at different points to 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 20’s, 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 break down of protein.

As protein is broken down, amino acids are released. These are the building blocks for new protein in the body like muscles and other tissues. The word systemic means body wide. Systemic enzymes are not just for digestion, but are used throughout your 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 injury and exercise recovery time. More study is needed before specific health benefits can be established.

The highly acidic conditions found in the stomach can deactivate enzymes if they are not properly protected. Systemic Enzyme Blend tablets have an enteric coating to protect them from the acid and ensure their activity in the intestines.

Other Ingredients: Dicalcium phosphate, modified cellulose, cellulose, modified cellulose gum, vegetable stearin, magnesium stearate, silica and aqueous based enteric coating. Ultra Proteo-ZimesTM contains powerful enzymes that may be useful after experiencing the stress of strenuous physical activity. They help support and maintain the health and mobility of joints.† Many enzymes are de-activated when exposed to the highly acidic conditions found in the stomach. Ultra Proteo- ZimesTM tablets are enteric coated to protect the activity of the enzymes. **USP units are determined through standardized tests outlined in the United States Pharmacopoeia. ***GDU’s (Gelatin Digestion Units) measure the digestive activity of an enzyme ingredient. ****MCU’s (Milk Clotting Units) measure the activity of an enzyme by its ability to cause clotting in a standardized amount of milk.

Caution: Keep out of reach of children.
