Why It’s Important!
Excess Fibrin Can Cause:
Proteolytic enzyme supplements have recently grown in popularity due to their many health benefits.
What does The Systemic (Body-Wide) Enzyme Therapeutic mean?
Systemic Enzyme Therapeutic refers to the therapeutic use of natural enzymes to produce a desired effect. Systemic enzymes are absorbed from the small intestine where they enter the bloodstream and execute their effects on the entire body as a system. Their crucial role in normal inflammatory response assists and supports the body in accelerating healing.
Why is taking proteolytic enzymes so essential?
Proteolytic enzymes help keep your blood clean, your blood vessels clear of plaque and blood clots and reduce systemic inflammation, all of which can address the #1 cause of death – heart disease. Proteolytic enzymes are responsible for catalyzing the conversion of the foods you eat and breaking them down into smaller molecules that your body can actually absorb and use. In the case of food proteins, proteolytic enzymes break these proteins down into smaller peptides that your digestive system then converts into amino acids. Amino acids function not only as the basic building blocks of proteins but also muscle tissue, organs, and life itself. Data suggest they play a big role in improving recovery from injuries past and present, keep you active and pain free which improves your quality of life. Without proteolytic enzymes your body would very quickly die.
How should Bio Defense – E be used?
Take with a large glass of water on an empty stomach 30 – 50 minutes before or 2 hours after meals. For Maintenance take 1-2 capsules 3 times per day. For a Therapeutic dose take 3 capsules 3 times per day until the symptoms subside, then go back to the maintenance dose.
Why is it important to take Bio Defense – E on an empty stomach?
Since most absorption occurs in the small intestine, the systemic enzymes must bypass the stomach to gain access there. If the enzymes are taken with food, they will likely begin working to break down your food within the stomach, rather than passing through to the small intestine. Taking systemic enzymes with food will compromise their absorption, as well as their effectiveness.
What is fibrin?
Fibrin is a protein-based substance that is needed to help clot one’s blood, playing a substantial role in immune response and healing. When the body responds to injury or chronic inflammation, fibrin is recruited to the damaged area to form scar tissue. Although the body is equipped with plasmin, a naturally occurring enzyme responsible for breaking down excess fibrin, some people are at a disadvantage – as aging occurs, plasmin levels progressively decrease. This actually increases the risk for excessive, undesirable scar tissue formation in the body.
Why is taking Bio Defense – E so important in reducing excess fibrin?
Fibrin is an insoluble protein the body produces in response to injury or trauma. It is the body’s natural response to recovery. Fibrin performs important functions in the body. Although fibrin has many functions, the most important include clotting and wound healing. One of the first steps to wound healing is the process of blood clotting. The protein precursor fibrinogen is converted into fibrin, which forms a layer of connective tissue inside the damaged blood vessel. This is a normal process. To do this, the fibrin strands assemble into a net-like structure over the damaged vessel and harden, forming a “patch” or small clot to prevent further damage. While fibrin is meant to work as a protective function, too much fibrin build up can cause problems such as:
The human body produces enzymes responsible to support all biological reactions within the body. The different systems in our bodies including our cardiovascular, digestive, and immune systems, would not be able to function without the support of these proteolytic enzymes. Enzymes carry out chemical reactions necessary for simple everyday functions such as our metabolism, breathing, and even our heart rate. It is important for us to supplement with necessary enzymes when our bodies fail to supply adequately.
As we age, our bodies gradually become unable to meet the daily demand of producing enzymes. When this occurs, it is imperative for us to begin to supplement our body with the necessary enzymes to prevent havoc within. With the use of proteolytic systemic enzymes, they can increase the support of many conditions including:
Can I take Bio Defense – E with digestive enzymes?
Although digestive and systemic enzymes are not contraindicated in terms of ingredients, they should not be taken at the same time. The purpose of digestive enzymes is to aid in digestion of specific foods, so taking them with food is an obvious recommendation. Because systemic enzymes require an empty stomach for maximum absorption, they must be taken separately from digestive enzymes. There are no adverse interactions between systemic and digestive enzymes, but they serve different purposes and thus should be taken as directed for best results.
How long should I take Bio Defense – E before I feel results?
Since people experience varying ailments and severity of disease, the length of time to include systemic enzymes in your regimen may vary as well. As an overall guideline, it is typically recommended that new systemic enzyme users start off slow. A starter dose is generally one capsule, three times daily. After three to four days of proven tolerance, the dose can be increased to a therapeutic dose of 3 capsules, 3 times per day. At this point, results may be monitored, and dosage should be adjusted accordingly. Some consumers find their therapeutic dose between 9-12 capsules per day, while others only need 3-6. There are several factors that may affect results and required dosage, including:
What if I miss a dose?
Regular, consistent use of systemic enzymes will provide the best results, however missed doses of systemic enzymes do not have serious repercussions. Although symptoms alleviated by systemic enzyme therapy may resurface if not being fully addressed, getting back on track by remembering to take your next dose will suffice. There is also the option of incorporating another dose during the day. There is no need to “double up,” on one dose – and remember, systemic enzymes are best absorbed on an empty stomach with plenty of water.
Are there any side effects?
At first you may experience short lived nausea and or diarrhea.
Can I take them with pharmaceutical drugs?
Research suggests they are safe, but it’s best to always consult your doctor first if you are taking prescription drugs.
Can I take them long term?
Yes. They are a natural occurrence in our food and body. They increasingly diminish with age so supplementation is key for healthy aging and keeping the body healthy.
Why are enzymes so expensive?
It comes down to production and purification costs. These are not regular digestive enzymes that are far less expensive. These types of enzymes are highly specialized and are far more expensive to make and, go through extensive purification processes that make up 90% of the total cost of goods. These enzymes have a very specific job to do and need proper treatment in production to make them effective. Less expensive proteolytic enzymes are available but you get what you pay for, and in most cases you will not get the desired result you want – leading you to believe they do not work and robbing you of a potential solution to your health issues.
How is Bio Defense E different from a single enzyme product?
Bio Defense E is designed to have broader health benefits than a single ingredient product. A formula consisting of multiple ingredients is far more effective because the compounds work synergistically, or in alliance with one another to create a more powerful effect. Also, each ingredient has its own primary healing properties that create a wider range of health benefits.
