Systemic Enzyme Complex
Our pancreas is responsible for the production of many digestive and systemic enzymes. When the pancreas’s production of these enzymes deteriorates, our health and well being may feel the effects. Supplementing with systemic enzymes hs shown to support muscle recovery, lessoning pain and maintaining a health inflammatory response. Pure Encapsulations Systemic Enzyme Complex contains pancreatin derived from porcine sources as well as trypsin from porcine and chymotipsin from bovine sources. Boswellia, bromelain and papain, help fight inflammation. Taken on an empty stomach between meals, this systemic complex may increase the body”s own defense system to combat inflammation and promote injury healing.
What Is It?
A synergistic enzyme formula that provides support for muscle, joint and overall tissue health. The proteolytic enzymes included in this formula support physiological homeostasis of musculoskeletal and other tissues for wide range systemic support.*
Uses For Systemic Enzyme Complex
Promotes Overall Tissue Health and Immune Support: Enzymes included in this formula have the potential to influence bradykinin formation, modulate the arachidonic cascade and prostaglandin E2 production, and provide fibrinolytic support. All of these actions contribute to the potential of proteolytic enzymes to maintain healthy immune mediator activity at the cellular level and overall tissue health.*
Muscle Support: Proteolytic enzymes have also been found to support muscle comfort and recovery of contractile function, as indicated in one placebo controlled human study involving athletes. Animal studies have indicated that some proteolytic enzymes may result in enhanced muscle recovery.*
Joint Support: Proteolytic enzymes support joint and cartilage comfort. Rutin, a flavonol, was shown in several animal studies to promote joint health better than other flavonols and is included in this formula to complement both its musculoskeletal and tissue support potential. Boswellia serrata is an Ayurvedic herb that has a long history of use for connective tissue and joint support. Boswellic acids, the terpenoid constituents of boswellia, maintain healthy 5–lipoxygenase enzyme activity and healthy leukotriene metabolism. In addition, boswellic acids may maintain healthy human leukocyte elastase enzyme activity, preserving the integrity of healthy connective tissue. Serrazimes®, a serrapeptidasecomparable enzyme blend, helps lessen minor pain and maintain a healthy inflammatory response.*
What Is The Source?
Pancreatin, trypsin and chymotrypsin are bovine derived and lactose-free. Protease 6.0 and Serrazimes® are derived from the digestion of a nutrient source by Aspergillus oryzae and Aspergillus melleus. Bromelain and papain are derived from pineapple and papaya, respectively. Rutin is sourced from the Fava danta tree found in Brazil. Boswellia serrata is standardized to contain 70% boswellic acids. Vitamin C (ascorbyl palmitate) is derived from corn dextrose fermentation and palm oil. Serrazimes® is a registered trademark of National Enzyme Company.
Are There Any Potential Side Effects Or Precautions?
Not to be taken by pregnant or lactating women. Individuals with an allergy to pineapple or papaya should not take this product. While there is no fungi present in the final product, individuals with candida may be sensitive to this product. Rare side effects of boswellia include diarrhea, skin rash, acid reflux and nausea and may be contraindicated in those with pre-existing gastritis or gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD).
Are There Any Potential Drug Interactions?
Studies suggest boswellia moderates 5-lipoxygenase and therefore may interact with leukotriene inhibitors.
