IS ENZYME THERAPY?
Enzyme therapy is a form of therapy that has evolved
from naturopathy. Today it has a firm place in the
spectrum of treatment available under the aegis of
mainstream medicine. Extensive research made this
ARE SYSTEMIC ENZYMES?
The correct term for the therapeutic use of
natural enzymes is “Systemic Enzyme Therapy.”
This means that enzymes flow throughout our body,
producing the desire effects.
DO ENZYMES WORK?
Enzymes work by virtue of their shape. An enzyme
molecule can be compared, in shape at least, to
many short strings of pearls (amino acids) strung
together. This long string folds in on itself as
certain sequences of amino acids (pearls) are more
attracted to each other than to other sequences,
thus giving the enzymes a specific shape. At one
point on the surface of this string of pearls
there exists something, which looks like a
keyhole. This is called the “active site” on
the enzyme. When matched with its specific
coenzyme (a vitamin, mineral, or trace element)
this “lock” has the exact inverse contour of
the “key” which is contained in the molecule
of the enzyme’s “substrate” (the molecule
the enzyme wants to transform into a different
molecule). When the substrate appears, it inserts
the “key” into the “lock.” The molecular
structure of the substrate is transformed into a
different molecular structure and both enzyme and
the newly transformed molecule go on their merry
IS A DIGESTIVE ENZYME?
The job of a digestive enzyme is to break down
food during the digestive process. The intestine
is more able to absorb food, which is thus broken
down into smaller units, and the rest of the body
is more easily able to utilize food, which is in
this form. There are three basic types of
digestive enzymes, one for each class of food:
lipase for fat, protease for protein and amylase
LONG BEFORE THE VITALZYM TAKES EFFECT?
It may depend on the individual’s physiological
make-up. Everyone is different. Testimonials from
some of our customers reported positive effects
ranging from 3 days to 2 weeks.
ARE VITALZYM’S CAPSULES MADE OF?
Vitalzyme capsules are made from cellulose which
is plant derived. Cellulose is a complex
carbohydrate, (C6H10O5)n that is composed of
glucose units forms the main constituent of the
cell wall in most plants.
IS THE RECOMMENDED DOSAGE OF VITALZYM™?
The recommended dosage to be taken at least 45
minutes prior to or after meals is 3 capsules once
a day. However, since each individual is different
a higher or lower dosage may be appropriate for
each particular need. (Click here to see
“Vitalzyme Dosing”). There is no toxicity
associated with the product at any level.
IS A PROTEOLYTIC ENZYME AS COMPARED TO A DIGESTIVE
The term “proteolytic” is a catchall term
referring to enzymes that digest protein.
IS VITALZYM MADE?
Vitalzym is manufactured in Phoenix, Arizona. We
have a commitment to excellence.
ingredients from the purest sources. Our
manufacturing facility meets the Good
Manufacturing Practices (GMP) set for supplements
by the industry. We also operate under the
standards and guidelines of the United States
THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS AT ALL WITH VITALZYM?
You should not take this product with out the
consent of your physician if you are currently
taking anti-coagulants. We currently have no
documented evidence of any adverse side effects
based on the use of Vitalzym.
VITALZYM HELP WITH SEXUAL DISORDERS?
There is no scientific data, no clinical studies
to support this at this time.
THERE BEEN ANY SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH DONE WITH YOUR
A clinical study involving Vitalzym is under way
at this time. Result will be published upon
completion. Click here for studies involving
Vitalzym’s main ingredient, serrapeptase.
DON’T YOU MAKE CLAIMS ABOUT VITALZYM?
The FDA does not allow the Nutraceuticals Industry
to make claims about their products without
scientific studies being performed that
substantiate the claims.
IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN VITALZYM AND OTHER
ENZYME BASED PRODUCTS?
The enzymes used in Vitalzym are plant derived;
where some other enzyme therapies are derive from
WEATHER AFFECT YOUR PRODUCT?
Severe heat can destroy the enzymes. Store in a
cool, dry place, with the lid of the bottle
ENZYMES CONSIDERED “ANTI-INFLAMMATORY DRUGS?”
Proteolytic enzymes are considered
THERE ANY INMOMPATIBILITY ISSUES WITH OTHER
No. In fact since vitamins are actually coenzymes
and minerals are cofactors to enzymes, enzymes are
needed in the body for them to be able to have
their full effect. In other words, Systemic Enzyme
use enhances the effect of any program of
THERE ANY INCOMPATIBILITY ISSUES WITH ANY
Yes. Customers on prescription blood thinners
should not use Vitalzym or any other Systemic
Enzyme concurrent with the drug use. The enzymes
enhance the effects of the blood thinning
medications making them stronger.
