Delivery Systems and Effectiveness
Vegetable-Based Enteric Coated Tablets
In 1960, Wobenzym was launched in Germany to help maintain healthy joints, mobility and flexibility as well as healthy inflammation following exertion. Since then, millions of people in countries all over the world have taken Wobenzym, which is now the #1 most-researched joint-health brand in the world.
Wobenzym N is an authentic systemic enzyme formula used by millions worldwide to provide clinically demonstrated benefits for joint health.† Enteric coated tablets taken twice daily on an empty stomach deliver a synergistic combination of plant-based enzymes, pancreatic (non-vegetarian) enzymes and plant antioxidants to help maintain healthy joints, mobility and flexibility.†
First introduced in Germany as a pharmaceutical over 40 years ago, Wobenzym N has been updated but still features the time-tested, synergistic combination of plant-based enzymes, pancreatic enzymes and antioxidants. These powerful yet delicate enzymes are protected by a vegetable-based enteric coating which ensures optimal absorption and utilization in the bloodstream.†
Vitalzym Extra Strength
Enteric Coated Liquid Enzyme Gel Capsules
In 2008 Vitalzym was introduced into the American market, carefully developed from extensive research into understanding the need for a more effective delivery system, and utilization of a blend of systemic ezymes that would address total system support.
Vitalzym® is the only systemic enzyme on the market today using the revolutionary enteric-coated, liquid-enzyme delivery system. Unlike many of the competitors tablet or powder-based products, Vitalzym’s enteric-coated, liquid-gel delivery system ensures that 100 percent of the enzymes survive the harsh acidic environment of the stomach and reach the small intestine. Here they become available for absorption into the bloodstream and then are dispersed throughout the entire body.
Every enzyme in Vitalzym® was chosen for its unique purpose. The combined enzymes have a synergetic effect upon the body’s function, known as an enzymatic cascade reaction. A single enzyme simply cannot provide the same benefits.
Vitalzym Extra Strength has been formulated with a technologically advanced delivery system that allows for reduced dosage and vastly increased effectiveness as compared to other systemic enzyme products.

Delivery System Benefits of Vitalzym Extra Strength
Looking at the delivery system refers to how the enzymes are manufactured, whether it is a powder inside a capsule, a tablet, or as an enteric coated capsule—which is the most effective, state of the art delivery system on the market today. Include liquid enzymes in that enteric coated capsule, and you have the most effective systemic enzyme product available.
Benefits of Liquid Enzymes
- Provides more uniform dose distribution of the enzymes
- Enzymes with a higher degree of purity and less moisture
- Low heat production to prevent enzyme activity loss
Benefits of Enteric Coating
- Protects capsule contents from acidic environments of stomach.
- After passing through the stomach, the capsule is easily broken down in pancreatic juices in the duodenum.
- Enables absorption of enzymes, at their highest activity levels, in the small intestine.
Not all enzymes are manufactured with enteric coating, and so often a premature release of certain enzymes can cause minimal if any absorption of the ingredients in the bloodstream where they belong. READ MORE about Vitalzym’s manufacturing history and process.
Delivery System Comparison
Over the years, there have been various methods of enteric coating to help protect the enzymes that can be destroyed by stomach acid and some have been proven to be more effective than others. As you will see, the latest technology of enteric coating has been used to protect the enzymes in Vitalzym.
Enteric Coated Tablets
Enteric coated tablets are able to withstand stomach acids; however they must be introduced into a high pH environment for extended periods before dissolving. Since individual pH levels vary, the tablet may dissolve very late in the small intestine or bypass it completely.
Enteric Coated Liquid Enzyme Gel Capsule
The all natural protective coating of Vitalzym® Extra Strength enteric coated liquid gel capsule prevents the enzymes from being destroyed by the stomach acids. The pancreatic juices break down the coating in the duodenum. This makes nearly 100% of the enzyme contents available for absorption into the bloodstream..
