These tablets are enteric coated to bypass the stomach and dissolve in the small intestine.
Serving Size: Dependent on case. Common recommendation for systemic inflammation is 3 tablets, 3x/day on an empty stomach (either 45 min before food or 2 hours after)
When taken for digestion, take 1-3 tablets with meals
Servings per Container: 90 tablets (10 days)
Each tablet supplies:
Pancreatin (4x) 100 mg
Bromelain 50 mg
Papain 50 mg
Amylase 10 mg
Trypsin & Alpha Chymotrypsin 100mg
What are Enzymes?
Occurring in every living thing on earth, enzymes are biological molecules that catalyze (increase the rate of) chemical reactions. Almost all chemical reactions in the cell need enzymes in order to occur at rates sufficient for life. They build new proteins, cells, tissues and organs, and also break down these same tissues.
The ability to ward off disease, repair injuries and sustain the body’s homeostasis are all connected to the concentration and strength of enzymes we have in our bodies. There are over 3,000 different types of enzymes in the human body, constantly at work initiating millions of chemical reactions every second. If we did not have enzymes there would be no digestion, no blood coagulation, no reproduction, no breathing and no use of the senses. This gives you an idea of how important enzymes are for the body.
In the body there are many different types of enzymes. We have all heard about digestive enzymes, which help us to digest our food, but there are enzymes that help with all the other functions of the body as well, these are called systemic enzymes. Systemic enzymes work on the entire system.
Benefits of Systemic Enzymes
Systemic enzymes have been shown beneficial for healthy fertility. Some of the beneficial actions systemic enzymes have within the body are to counteract chronic inflammation, reduce the substances in the blood that can trigger a hyper-autoimmune response, break down fibrin (the substance that scar tissue is made from), and improve blood flexibility and flow. All of these actions can help to support healthy reproductive function.
Systemic enzymes help to break down the substances in the blood that create inflammation and infection. This may benefit those experiencing chronic inflammation related to a fertility issue such as endometriosis, uterine fibroids, PID or ovarian cysts.
Chronic inflammation can be caused from and cause injury to the healthy tissues of the reproductive system that are being invaded by foreign tissue or infection. Inflammation and foreign tissue growth can create scar tissue and adhesion formation in the reproductive organs and the surrounding structures within the abdominal cavity. Inflammation can also cause pain. Pain is a common problem for women with chronic inflammation due to fertility issues, especially endometriosis and uterine fibroids. Reducing inflammation with Systemic Enzyme Therapy may in turn help reduce pain.
Regulatory Effect on the Immune System
Systemic enzymes help the body to reduce the occurrence of a hyperimmune response. One study has shown that they may help to prevent the rejection of the fetus (recurrent miscarriage) and help with other issues related to reproductive immunological imbalances.
Systemic enzymes have also been shown to benefit autoimmune hypothyroidism – Hashimoto’s. One study noted that taking a systemic enzyme blend resulted in a reduction of autoimmune antibodies that attack the thyroid. Hypothyroidism can be a cause of infertility or recurrent miscarriages.
Breaks Down Scar Tissue
Systemic enzymes have the ability to break down fibrin, the substance that makes up scar tissue. Scar tissue and adhesion causing fertility issues can form for a variety of reasons including uterine fibroids, pelvic surgery such as Cesarean Section, PID, damage to fallopian tubes, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, IUD, or abortion.
How systemic enzyme blends eliminate scar tissue:
- The systemic enzyme blend works as a biological response modifier; working with the bodies own immune defense system to moderate inflammatory response.
- They support cleansing of the tissues and promote better circulation.
- They break down and remove “fibrin”, the make-up of prolonged inflammation and scar tissue/adhesion formation.
- They break down the proteins in the blood that cause inflammation, this facilitates their removal via the lymphatic and circulatory system.
- They support a reduction in inflammation, an increase in proper blood formation, and an increase in circulation which helps to hinder scar tissue and adhesion formation, while also reducing pain.
Improves Blood Flow
Systemic enzymes cleanse the blood, promote circulation and stimulate the formation of new, healthy tissue.
Proteolytic enzymes improve blood flow by increasing the flexibility of red blood cells, inhibiting the aggregation of platelets, and helping to prevent abnormal blood clotting. Systemic enzymes also help to support cleansing of the tissues and promote better circulation as well as stimulate formation of new, healthy tissue. Simplified they make the blood less “sticky”. This is beneficial for reproductive health in many ways.
The blood cleansing actions of systemic enzymes help to bring proper circulation to the reproductive system and get the “stagnant blood” cleared out, helping to remove toxins and also bringing fresh oxygenated blood to your uterus, ovaries and eggs. Imbalances which are considered stagnant are endometriosis, PCOS, heavy dark menses, ovarian cysts and uterine fibroids. The fresh oxygenated, free flowing blood is also able to transport more nutrients to the eggs, supporting egg health.
