Systemic enzymes offer various health benefits, they support all systems of your body and help to heal and repair, too.
Every cell in the body uses enzymes for building, maintenance, and repair. Since enzyme combinations benefit your cardiovascular system, circulatory system, and joint health, it is important to keep the enzymes protected from the acids of the stomach that can reduce, or destroy, their healing properties.
To show the effectiveness of systemic enzymes and the coating used by Vitälzym, scientific tests have been performed. These tests show that with the enteric coating it is possible for the enzyme combination to pass safely through the stomach so the enzymes are able to be absorbed into the small intestine, for maximum effectiveness.
Effectiveness of Systemic Enzymes
The effectiveness of any systemic enzyme combination is determined by the activity level in the bloodstream after the enzyme has been absorbed by the small intestine. That is why the enteric coating protecting each capsule of Vitälzym is so important, because enzyme activity is significantly reduced in the acidic environment of the stomach. Enzymes begin to significantly lose their activity once introduced into even low pH levels.
The amount of activity loss is dependent upon the individual enzyme and the amount of time it spends in the stomach. Studies prove that unprotected enzymes can lose up to 100% of their activity in fewer than 30 minutes. This is true in pH levels below 3.0 and stomach acidity is typically in the 1.5 to 3.5 range. To ensure enzymes are not destroyed by the stomach acids, enteric-coated capsules are essential.
Under laboratory conditions, enzyme activity levels were analyzed. These tests were performed on various enzyme products to illustrate what happens to enzyme activity levels in the acidic environment of the stomach.
The disintegration and dissolution test simulated the acid conditions of the stomach and tested the sample capsules over a specific period of time. When the test was performed with Vitalzym, the results indicated that the product performed well under the criteria illustrated. Of course, the actual enzyme activity levels of these products when absorbed into the bloodstream may vary. This is because individual bodies respond to enzymes differently due to shifts in individual metabolism and pH levels.
It is true that your body creates systemic enzymes naturally, but the production of these building blocks of life diminishes over time. This is problematic because an individual with low enzyme production levels may have a harder time fighting off inflammation and repairing itself after workouts or injuries. Since all of your bodily systems rely on enzymes, supplement you diet with an enzyme combination you trust. Opt for enteric coating to ensure your enzymes are reaching their point of maximum effectiveness.
