If you were to ask someone what enzymes are, and how they work, the majority of people wouldn't be able to give a correct answer, however we can not exist without enzymes.
Enzymes are complex protein substances that participate in every chemical reaction in every cell of our body. They are essential for all metabolic, reproductive, and defensive processes inside our body.
Enzymes play a great role as a biocatalysts – they speed up chemical reactions. Without enzymes the chemical reactions that make up our life would be too slow for life as we know it. Millions of chemical processes in our body are taking place every second – and without enzymes these processes would’ve taken hundreds of years.
More then 3000 enzymes provide normal vital functions in our body – most of them are proteolytic (protein-splitting). They are produced by our body or enter with the food we eat – fresh, not thermally processed.
The enzyme is highly specific in its action. Enzymes work like a key and a lock - just as a key only works for one specifically programmed lock, an enzyme is programmed for one specific function. This particular enzyme only works with one particular chemical, and interacts with that chemical only. The human body contains a huge number of different enzymes working like clocks, providing an unlimited number of vital complicated processes.
To sustain all normal vital functions a human body needs to have an adequate number of enzymes. Nowadays almost everyone suffers from enzyme’s deficiency as a consequence of eating thermally processed food. Enzyme deficiency can happen because of genetic changes, and can cause serious health problems.
Medical scientists predict the big future in the development of new methods of enzyme therapy in maintaining good health and well-being and disease prevention.
Exclzyme®EN – the new Santegra®’s exclusive systemic enzyme formula.
• Only high quality enzymes mostly plant derived are used in Exclzyme®EN. Plant derived enzymes provide a broad range of activity within the wide pH range (from 3 to 9), unlike animal enzymes.
• Exclzyme®EN has high enzymatic activity – 30,000 ExcIU per one tablet.
• Enzymes in Exclzyme®EN act synergetically – the phenomenon in which two or more agents acting together to create an effect greater than the predicted by the separate effects of the individual agents.
Peptizyme SP® EN – Serrapeptase – proteolytic enzyme produced in silkworm’s stomach. Silkworms use it to dissolve cocoons in their transmutation into a butterfly.
Clinical trials proved fibrinolytic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-edematous effect of Serrapeptase.
Many clinical trials showed the effectiveness of using Serrapeptase as an anti-inflammatory agent (especially in post-traumatic edemas). This enzyme has an ability to clean up dead tissue, grume, and arterial thrombus.
Anti-inflammatory properties of Serrapeptase exceed all other proteolytic enzymes (10) and its pain relieving abilities (11) are well documented. Considering these anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties Serrapeptase is widely used as an alternative to non-steroid anti-inflammatory products. (12)
Peptizyme SP® EN is the only enzyme in Exclzyme®EN, that is sensitive to the acidic environment of the stomach, and therefore it is protected by a special coat, that dissolves only in the small intestine where absorption takes place. After the enzymes are absorbed in the blood stream, they spread out throughout the body, wherever they are the most needed.
Bromeline is a proteolytic enzyme extracted from the flesh and stem of the pineapple plant, Ananas comosus.
Bromelain is most notable for its effectiveness in the reduction of inflammation and decreasing swelling.
As a natural anti-inflammatory, it is widely used to reduce arthritic pain and edema. Bromelain may also be helpful for the pain, numbness, tingling, aching, and loss of motor and sensory function in the fingers resulting from carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) (13, 14), and for prophylaxis of thrombosis (clot formations). (15) Even a small dose of bromeline is beneficial for cardio-vascular support, improves digestion, has a positive effect on metabolic functions, and helps with excessive weight reduction.
Papain is one of the proteolytic enzymes found in milk juice of papaya tree (Carica papaya L.). Papain is a broad spectrum enzyme that has a special function of splitting proteins into aminoacids.
• prevents clot formation;
• helps to speed up wound healing;
• decreases joint’s inflammation;
• stimulates enzymes production in the body;
• improves metabolism;
• helps with excessive weight reduction.
Amla (Emblica, Indian gooseberry) – one of the most celebrated herbs in the traditional Indian medicine.
Amla is well known as the richest source of Vitamin C, which is resistant to storage and heat damage due to cooking. Besides that, amla contains bioflavonoids and carotenoids with antioxidant properties. Glycosides and saponins in the plant normalize bowel’s functions; eliminate constipation, wind, and gastrointestinal colic.
Amla improves immune protection and hemoglobin synthesis. The chemicals in this plant’s fruits have a unique ability to support enzyme activity.
Rutin – bioflavonoid, with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, decreases the capillary wall permeability, increases its density.
Proteolytic enzymes are perfectly digested and do not cause any side effects. Their application does not reduce the ability of a pancreas to produce its own enzymes. (16)
The efficiency of enzymotherapy is confirmed by clinical researches in more than 20 different areas of medicine, including obstetrics-gynecology, urology, surgery, etc.
Exclzyme®EN helps body to support well being the natural way, without negative effect of antibiotics, hormones and other chemical substances.
