Vitalzym Enzyme Supplements Promotes a Balanced Lifestyle
Recommended by Drunvalo
Systemic enzymes operate throughout the body, in every system and organ. They function as biocatalysts — in other words, they make things work, or work faster. Without enzymes, the chemical reactions that are necessary to maintain bodily health would not take place.
Most of these enzymes are derived from what we think of as the protein digesting enzymes. While digestion is an important part of what these biocatalysts do, it is their absolute last function — first and foremost, body wide, proteolytic (protein eating) enzymes have the following functions:
Inflammation is the way the immune system reacts to an irritation. Enzymes are the first line of defense against any sort of inflammation. Let's say you injure your right knee. Sensing the irritation, the immune system creates a protein chain, called a Circulating Immune Complex (CIC) tagged specifically for that part of the body. This CIC floats down to the right knee, causing pain, inflammation, and swelling — the classic earmarks for inflammation. At first this action is beneficial, in that it sends a signal that part of the body is injured and needs attention — but, inflammation is self-perpetuating, and it leads to an irritation that causes the body to create more CIC's, and thus, more pain.
Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Celebrex, Vioxx, and the rest of the Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory drugs all work by preventing the body from making all CIC's. This ignores the fact that some CIC's are beneficial, and vital to life — like those that maintain the intestinal lining and those that keep the kidneys functioning! Not to mention the fact that all Anti Inflammatory drugs, along with Acetaminophen, are highly toxic to the liver. Every year, 20,000 Americans die from these over the counter medications and another 100,000 wind up in the hospital with liver damage, kidney damage, or intestinal bleeding.
On the other hand, systematic enzymes are perfectly safe and free from dangerous side effects. They have no LD-50, or toxic dose. But, best of all, systematic enzymes can tell the difference between the good CIC's and the bad ones — hydrolytic enzymes have a lock and key mechanism and their 'teeth' will only fit over the bad CIC's. Instead of prohibiting the creation of all CIC's, systemic enzymes attack and eat up only the bad ones. In so doing they lower inflammation everywhere and reduce pain in the process.
Fibrosis is scar tissue that forms in the body every time we get any type of internal or external injury. A simple cut creates a fibrotic condition on the surface of the skin. Over time and through neglect or abuse, our muscular system and our internal organs become afflicted by this condition as well. Anyone who over uses their muscles through work or exercise is loaded with fibrosis. Very early in their medical career every doctor learns through their anatomical studies that it is systematic fibrosis that eventually kills us all.
Systemic enzymes eat scar tissue and fibrosis — but because we are allotted a finite amount of enzymes at birth, as we age (which begins at 27) we use up most of them before we are 30 — around that time the body begins to dispense these bio-catalysts in smaller amounts. As a result the physical repair mechanism goes out of balance and the over abundance of fibrin accumulates in nearly everything from simple cuts to the inside of our internal organs and blood vessels. This is when most women begin to develop things like fibrocystic breast disease, uterine fibroids, and endometriosis — and when all of us begin to grow arterio-sclerotic plaque, and when fibrin begins to spider-web its way into our internal organs, reducing their size and function over time. This is why, as we age, our wounds heal with less pliable, weaker, and very visible scars.
By replacing the lost enzymes we can control and reduce the amount of fibrosis and scar tissue in our bodies. Physicians in the U.S. have discovered that even old scar tissue from surgical wounds, pulmonary fibrosis, kidney fibrosis, and keloids will be eaten away when systemic enzymes are introduced.
The blood is not only the river of life — it is also the river through which the cells and the organs dispose of garbage and waste material. Enzymes improve circulation by eating the excess fibrin that causes blood to sometimes get thicker than catsup or yogurt — a condition that makes it easy for clotting to take place. All of this waste material is supposedly cleared by the liver on its first pass — but given the sluggish and nearly toxic state's of our livers these days, this seldom happens — so the sludge remains in the blood stream waiting for the liver to have enough free working space and enough enzymes to 'Take out the trash', so to speak. This can take days, and in some cases, weeks.
When systemic enzymes are taken on a daily basis they stand ready in the blood to take the strain off the liver by:
1) Cleaning excess fibrin in the blood and reducing the stickiness of the cells. These two actions minimize the potential for clotting — the leading cause of strokes and heart attacks.
2) Breaking dead waste matter down so that it's small enough to pass immediately into the bowel.
3) Cleansing the FC receptors on the white blood cells, improving their efficiency and their ability to fight off infection
The only warning that we have to give concerning the use of Vitalzym, or any other brand of systemic enzyme is that it should not be used if you are a hemophiliac, or if you are currently taking prescription blood thinners like Coumadin, Heparin, and Plavix without direct medical supervision. The enzymes will cause these drugs to work better and there is a risk of thinning the blood too much.
IMMUNE SYSTEM MODULATION
Enzymes are adaptogenic — in other words they seek to restore a steady, balanced state to the body. When the immune system is weakened we become susceptible to infectious diseases. When it's cranked up too high, our systems create antibodies that attack our own tissues and conditions like MS, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Lupus develop. Here, the enzymes tone down the immune function and eat away at the antibodies the immune system generates to attack the body's own tissue.
Viruses do harm by replicating in our bodies. They do this by bonding themselves to the DNA in our cells through the medium of its exterior protein cell wall. Anything that disrupts that cell wall inhibits the ability of viral replication by rendering individual viruses inert. Systemic enzymes can tell the difference between the proteins that are supposed to be in your body and those that aren't (again this is the lock and key mechanism). Due to its high concentration of Serrapeptase, Vitalzym has the strongest and fastest protein eating effect of any enzyme product on the planet.
This version of the product is good for people who are concerned with their cardiovascular health. With a high concentration of the soybean derivative, Nattokinase, VITALZYM-CARDIO is a vegetarian formula that attacks and dissolves fibrous deposits in the arteries, and literally eats up arterial plaque. Bodybuilders and people who work physically hard for a living have so much fibrin in their muscular system, the Nattokinase in this formula dissolves those deposits, eliminates the build up of scar tissue, and restores the muscles to a healthy, youthful state. C-Reactive Protein levels, which are used to measure vascular inflammation, have been shown to go way down when this product is taken as prescribed.
The researchers at World Nutrition have been busy reformulating the Vitalzym-CARDIO product. In the meantime they made a decision to let the original formula sell out. Due to delays in the research and development process, the new, enteric version of this product will not be available for a few more months. For this reason, our Vitalzym distributor has informed us that they have decided to reissue a limited edition of the original Vitalzym-CARDIO formula. Those of you who rely on this product will be pleased to know that it will be on sale in the Ma'at Shop while supplies last.
