The Many Health Benefits of Proteolytic Enzymes

Story at-a-glance -

  • Enzymes are necessary for all physiological processes. They catalyze biological functions that otherwise would not occur at physiological temperatures, so they’re absolutely vital for optimal health and life
  • By lowering the amount of energy needed for a reaction to occur, they allow for reactions that otherwise would not be possible, or would be too slow to keep up with your body’s demands
  • Activities that require enzymes include energy production, absorption of oxygen, reducing inflammation and fighting infections, getting nutrients into your cells and removal of toxic waste, hormone regulation and much more
  • Proteolytic enzymes break down dietary protein and protein-based foreign bodies. In your gut, they function as digestive aids; in your blood, they act as blood cleansers that combat inflammation and rebalance your immune system
  • When taken with a meal, proteolytic enzymes will work as digestive aids; when taken on an empty stomach, they pass through your digestive system and enter your blood circulation and provide systemic benefits
