Vitalzym (Choose a formula)
$39.00 – $149.99
Formulated to Support:
Hybrid formulas are designed for those looking for both systemic and digestive benefits to provide total system support.* The Vitalzym Original Hybrid powder-filled capsule begins to break down in the stomach providing digestive support, while the buffer enteric-coated serrapeptase survives the acidic environment of the stomach to be released in the small intestine. From there it is absorbed into the bloodstream and distributed throughout the body for systemic support.* The inclusion of digestive enzymes also provides assistance with digestion and assimilation of important nutrients.
The Purpose of Enzymes
Enzymes are said to be the “sparks of life.” They are considered keys that can unlock the door to a healthier you because they not only help improve digestion and nutrient absorption—they are also responsible for millions of bodily functions.
What exactly are enzymes? They are proteins that are responsible for every chemical reaction that goes on in the body. Enzymes govern all functions related to tissues, muscles, bones, organs, and cells. Every second of our lives, over 3,000 different enzymes are constantly renewing and changing, often at unbelievable speeds.
Our bodies have a variety of functional units, such as a digestive system, an immune system, a cardiovascular system, and a circulatory system, just to name a few. Each system requires energy in order to perform optimally. It just so happens that enzymes provide this much needed energy for the successful completion of each biological function.
Enzymes are responsible for everyday bodily processes, such as:
- Liver function
- Immune regulation
- Viscosity of blood
- Cellular detoxification
- Energy production
- Ability to utilize vitamins and minerals
The History of Enzymes
Enzymes have been studied since the early 1900s. Even though there is over a century’s worth of information regarding their use, there is still a lot to learn about them. However, one certainty is that we would not exist without them.
Over the last decade, science has uncovered numerous roles for enzymes than ever thought possible. They initiate millions of reactions within your body. In fact, many health care professionals are now advocating the use of enzymes for various conditions and post-operative healing.
When referring to enzymatic supplements, it’s important to distinguish between those used for digestion and those used systemically.
- Digestive enzymes are taken orally with food in order to help break down fats, carbohydrates, and proteins for improved digestive function and nutrient absorption. Original Vitalzym can assist with digestion, but are not primarily a digestive enzyme.
- Systemic enzymes, such as those in original Vitalzym, are taken orally in between meals on an empty stomach. This way they can be absorbed by the intestines into the bloodstream where the body can utilize them for countless bodily processes.
