Authorized Reseller of World Nutrition

 

Take Vitalzym Systemic Enzymes for your immune system to be the strongest it can be! Plus watch your pain, inflammation, fibroids tumors and scar tissue disappear, along with killing viruses, lowering  cholesterol. killing candida... just a few of of it's amazing benefits! Vitalzym is truly the most miraculous health supplement on the market and World Nutrition is the company that made systemic enzymes famous! KI've taken this for over 7-8 years and will never stop! 

Have you just had surgery or an injury? Did you know that inside of your body, it became so inflamed after that injury, that scar tissue is growing and growing and growing and will NOT stop unless YOU do something??! Most people do not realize that about scar tissue. There is a LOT of important things that Vitalzym systemic enzymes do, but this is one that is not talked about as much. And it's CRITICAL to STOP the growth of scar tissue.

The miracle of Vitalzym is that the enzymes only go after EXCESS scar tissue. It doesn't keep eating away at fibrous tissue that is NEEDED by the body to cover up a wound because that would actually reopen the wound. Endogenous means that it is NEEDED fibrous tissue. Exogenous means that the fibrous tissue is NOT needed and doesn't belong in your body. Somehow, the enzymes can tell the difference and they only go after the exogenous (not needed) fibrous tissue.

I knew this before I had a surgery on my knee and could hardly wait to get home to start on my Vitalzym systemic enzymes again, because I have heard the stories from doctors on how our bodies will immediately begin to grow scar tissue over the wound's area after surgery. That is a actually a GOOD thing. It pads the area and helps it to heal. The problem is that our bodies aren't smart enough to STOP growing scar tissue. Eventually, we can barely move around as we grow older without pain or discomfort because of the buildup of scar tissue in our bodies.

Over the years, we have grown scar tissue from every wound (surgery or otherwise) that we've experienced. This is just the first of MANY reasons systemic enzymes are a MUST-HAVE for every living person. I'll be telling you lots more about the BEST systemic enzymes on the market - Vitalzym - in just a minute, so keep reading! Plus there are lots of testimonies you can read near the end which will help you understand how Vitalzym works.

At Winning Edge, we sell all 3 different types of Vitalzym. First, is the Original Hybrid Vitalzym 450 ct powder capsules systemic enzymes, which give you both systemic & digestive support. The Vitalzym Hybrid product is the original formulation that helped push World Nutrition to the forefront of the systemic enzyme market in 2001. It contains a proprietary blend of systemic enzymes, antioxidants, and flavonoids which helps support: GI and Digestive Function, Normal Pain & Inflammatory Response, Fibrin and Scar Tissue Levels, Immune Function, Circulatory Function & Metabolic Function. (Systemic means BODY-WIDE)

We also have the Extra Strength Vitalzym Enteric Coated Gel Caps systemic enzymes (3 sizes: 60, 180 & 360 ct), which are a technologically advanced, liquid filled, enteric coated, TINY get capsule that no other company has! They are TWICE as strong as the Hybrid Original Vitalzym! These types of capsules are used by today's most advanced pharmaceuticals. The all natural, non-toxic coating on the Extra Strength Vitalzym allows the enzymes to bypass the stomach acids so that they are 100% available in the small intestine.
This delivery system is revolutionary to systemic enzyme blends, in that there is no loss of enzyme due to digestion or stomach acidity.


Most users will experience at least DOUBLE the enzyme potency of the original Hybrid Vitalzym systemic enzymes when they take the Extra Strength Vitalzym gelcaps. Some users may experience an even greater effect. The difference in potency is dependent upon each user's pH levels as well as the users's dosaging habits. If you are currently taking the original Hybrid Vitalzym systemic enzymes, World Nutrition recommends reducing your dosage by at least 50% with the Extra Strength Vitalzym. I would suggest starting at an even LOWER dose and working up to the highest needed dose of around 12 Vitalzym capsules a day (if you have a serious issue going on). They should be divided up either 3 times a day or twice a day (AM and PM on a empty stomach, 1 hour away from food, other health supplements or medicine, for the BEST absorption possible.)

We also have the VitalzymXe 180 ct which is a physician's product and is FOUR times as strong as the Original Hybrid formula. For that, you need to call us for the price and to order since it is a doctor's product.

Information on Vitalzym!

Vitalzym, (no matter which one you choose) from World Nutrition, is an all-natural, 100% vegetarian, systemic enzyme supplement with a unique blend of enzymes that helps balance the body's natural chemistry to decrease inflammation and pain, eat away scar tissue and remove toxins, sludge and impurities in the blood. Based on more than 40 years of research and endorsed by renowned healthcare professionals, Vitalzym is the most popular systemic enzyme supplement on the market today. Dr. Max Wolf, M.D., who researched enzymes and hormones at Columbia University from the 1930's through the 1960's, determined that enzyme production capacity diminishes significantly in humans after the age of 27!

Systemic enzymes are essential and must be included in our diets. We need potent enzymes like Vitalzym Systemic Enzymes, that will offer full system-wide benefits. With today’s fast lifestyle and longevity, just as we supplement vitamins and minerals, systemic enzymes are also necessary to maintain good health as we age.

Vitälzým is safe and has NO toxicity - NO side-effects. The more enzymes you take, the faster your body may achieve the full benefits and results you are seeking.
Systemic enzymes are NEVER wasted in our bodies. If an excess amount is taken, they will be utilized in priority order (they know what to do first and what is of utmost importance!) Managing your digestive system is one of their lowest priorities, which is why you want to take a digestive enzyme like OmegaZyme or Omega Zyme ULTRA from Garden of Life for your GI tract. Vitalzym's enzymes go after scar tissue, blood cleansing, pain, inflammation, fibroid tumors and so many more serious issues.


 

The Extra Strength Vitalzym has been reformulated with a technologically advanced delivery system that allows for reduced dosage and vastly increased effectiveness. This improved Extra Strength Vitalzym comes in a stronger, more potent, 100% enteric coated tiny capsule! The unique blend of these Vitalzym's vegetarian enzymes, flavonoids, and antioxidants have been formulated for 100% absorption in the small intestine!

What are Vitalzym Systemic Enzymes?

Vitalzym Authorized Internet Reseller

Vitalzym is one of the most powerful and fast working systemic proteolytic enzymes on the market. Enzymes are needed for each of the millions of biochemical reactions that make life possible. Without enzymes, life could not exist. "Systemic" means whole-body therapy, not just a digestive therapy.

Vitalyzm is a blend of enzymes that work synergistically to provide a total system support. It contains Serrapeptase, Bromelain and Papain. It also contains Amylase and Lipase. In addition to enzymes, it is supplemented with antioxidants Amla and Rutin.

Vitalzym helps remove scar tissue and excess fibrin in the blood, modulate immune function, fight viruses, cleanse the blood and detoxifying the liver. Vitalzym with Serrapeptase will lessen the incidence of injury, maintain our bone and muscle mass, increase our circulation, lubricate the joints, and feed our brain better. Vitalzym has made MANY believers, from sufferers of arthritis, fibromylagia, arteriosclerosis, auto immune disorders, traumatic injuries, fibroids, and other conditions too numerous to name them all!

Vitalzym's serrapeptase based blend of enzymes is the strongest and FASTEST WORKING systemic enzyme on the planet with research to prove it. VITALZYM ... often copied, but never equaled.

One of the most exciting things for women to learn about Vitalzym, is what I'm about to share with you now.

Did you know that most women over 30 years of age are estrogen dominant, because we lose practically all the progesterone in our body? Estrogen dominance is very dangerous....I've been studying this seriously for years...that's what causes many cancers women deal with (Read "What Your Doctor Doesn't Tell You About Menopause" by John R. Lee and Virginia Hopkins)....another problem it causes is fibroid tumors!

Uterine fibroid tumors are found most often in the uterus of women in their 30's and 40's. Between 20-50% of women of childbearing age have uterine fibroids. They are usually benign (non-cancerous) tumors. The enzymes in Vitalzym eat fibrin in the body, and fibroid tumors are made of fibrin! Thousands of women have Vitalzym to thank for shrinking their fibroids tumors, saving them from needless surgeries. I, personally, know some of these women. Maybe you'll be next! Read about it HERE!

New Improved Vitalzym Enteric Coated Liquid Gel Capsules

NEW & Improved Extra Strength Vitalzym

Enteric Coated Liquid Gel Capsules


World Nutrition Home Page

Vitalzym has been reformulated with a technologically advanced delivery system that allows for reduced dosage and vastly increased effectiveness.

The Extra Strength Vitalzym (in the silver bottle) has an Enteric Coating! - The effectiveness of any systemic enzyme is determined by the amount of activity level in the brood stream (in vivo) after being absorbed from small intestine. Enzymes, whose activities are significantly lost in an acidic environment, must be protected for their utmost effectiveness. Enzymes will begin to lose their activity once introduced into the low pH (1.0 - 3.0) acids of the stomach. The amount of activity loss is dependent upon the individual enzyme and the amount of time in the stomach. Studies have shown that unprotected enzymes can lose up to 100% of their activity in fewer than 30 minutes in pH levels below 3.0. The only method to ensure that 100% of the ingredients are not destroyed by the stomach acids is to enteric coat the enzymes. Vitalzym has been reformulated to use a pharmaceutical grade enteric coated gel capsule.

Vitalzym's Extra Strength enteric coated gel capsule has been designed to pass tests for enteric coated capsules. Though revolutionary to nutritional enzyme blends, this enteric coating process is similar to those used in today's most advanced pharmaceuticals. Vitalzym's gelcap has a corn protein shell barrier that allows it to withstand the extremely low pH levels found in the stomach. Once introduced to the pancreatic juices in the duodenum (upper small intestine), the shell barrier breaks down to release its enzymes. The enzymes are then absorbed into the blood stream through the lining of the small intestine.

Vitalzym Enteric Coated Gel Capsule Digestion Benefits

Vitalzym Gel Capsule Digestion

Vitalzym's enteric coated liquid-filled gelcap has an all-natural protective coating which prevents the enzymes from being destroyed by your stomach acids. The pancreatic juices break down the coating in the duodenum. This makes 100% of the Extra Strength Vitalzym enzyme contents available for absorption into the bloodstream.

Extra Strength Vitalzym Solubilized Liquid Filled Gel Capsule - At the center of the advanced delivery system is a new Solubilized Liquid Filled Gel Capsule. The technology of liquid enzymes is superior to that of capsules filled with powder due to low heat production, more uniform dose distribution and prolonged enzyme activity.

  • Protease - Any enzyme that catalyzes the splitting of proteins into smaller peptide fractions and amino acids by a process known as proteolysis.
  • Bromelain - An enzyme found in pineapples that breaks down other proteins, such as collagen.
  • Papain - A proteolytic enzyme obtained from unripe papaya.
  • Amylase - Any of a group of proteins found in saliva and pancreatic juice and parts of plants, Amylase digests carbohydrates and helps convert starch to sugar.
  • Lipase - Lipase digests fat. It is an enzyme secreted in the digestive tract that catalyzes the breakdown of fats into individual fatty acids that can be absorbed into the bloodstream.
  • Amla - Amla is a great source of Vitamin C.
  • Rutin - One of the many existing flavonoids. Flavonoids support health by strengthening capillaries and other connective tissue.

NOTE: I truly believe anyone taking World Nutrition's Vitalzym regularly, should supplement it with World Nutrition's Vitalzym Cardio (see below) to make SURE your cardiovascular health stays in perfect shape as you age, plus stop any clogging of your arteries and Vitalzym Cardio can even help eliminate varicose veins!

Do NOT take more than 3 Vitalzym Cardio a day and space them out by taking them 2-3 separate times a day on an empty stomach, one hour away from food or medicine. You can take as many of the Vitalzym gel capsules as your body needs!! Any questions, just call us about the dosage you should be taking (719-598-5050, but you will receive a dosage chart along with your order so you aren't confused!).

Since Vitalzym needs to be taken on an empty stomach with a full glass of water, you'll be happy to know that you can take them  at the same time as your Vitalzym Cardio! Order on our Vitalzym order page.


Enzyme Overview by Dr. Donese Worden, N.M.D.
 


Vitalzym - Systemic Enzymes Class 101

Vitalzym systemic enzymes eat away scar tissue and fibrosis. Fibrosis is dead tissue and most doctors learn in anatomy that it is fibrosis that eventually kills us all. As we age, which starts at 27, we have a diminishing of the bodies' output of enzymes. This is because we make a finite amount of enzymes in a lifetime and we use up most of them by the time we are age 27. At that point the body knows that if it keeps up that rate of consumption we'll run out of enzymes and be dead by the time we reach our 40's. (Cystic Fibrosis patients who have virtually no enzyme production to speak of, even as children usually don't make it past their 20's before they die of the restriction and shrinkage in the lungs from the formation of fibrosis or scar tissue).

So, our body in it's "wisdom" begins to dole out our enzymes with an eyedropper instead of with a tablespoon; as a result, the repair mechanism of the body goes out of balance and, therefore, has nothing to reduce the over abundance of fibrin it deposits in nearly every thing from simple cuts, to the inside of our internal organs and blood vessels. This is when most women begin to develop things like fibrocystic breast disease, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, and we all grow arterial sclerotic (meaning scar tissue) plaque, and have fibrin beginning to spider web its way inside of our internal organs reducing their size and function over time. This is why as we age our wounds heal with thicker, less pliable, weaker and very visible scars.

If we replace the lost enzymes we can control and reduce the amount of scar tissue and fibrosis our bodies have. As physicians in the US are now discovering, even old scar tissue can be "eaten away " from surgical wounds, pulmonary fibrosis, kidney fibrosis and even keloids years after their formation. Medical doctors in Europe and Asia have known this and have used orally administered enzymes for these situations for over 40 years! So, finally companies like World Nutrition have sprung up and these enzymes are now available to us in America.Do NOT bypass studying Vitalzym. It can seriously save YOUR life, or a loved one's!

Fibroid Tumors GONE Because of Vitalzym!

"I have fibroids - hundreds of them, 4 that are 15cm and others that are between 4cm to 10cm, and 3 in my tubes as well. I was in severe pain, the cramping and sharp pain in my uterus, was horrible, excessive menstural bleeding that was lasting for months; I think the longest was 3 months. Everytime I thought it stopped, it started up again. I was desperate, because I had no life, could not do anything because of the bleeding, my iron was low, my B12, calcuim, vitamin D - everything was low! Then the specialist told me she did not feel comfortable operating because I had too many and I should consider a hysterectomy. I am only in my 30's and want kids, so I am awaiting a second opinion. In the meantime, I did my research and I ordered Vitalzym. It's been a month now, and I noticed a huge difference. At first I started off with an insane amount. I was taking 15 New Vitalzym a day for two weeks, I was in such severe pain. I noticed stuff passing out of my body - it was painful, then all of a sudden, I noticed no pain, and the bleeding stopped! I am still in shock, and also along with taking Vitalzym, I also worked with medical intutive, who helped me as well, and the large fibroid that I could see and feel in my stomach is gone. Once I see the other specialist, I will get another ultrasound and maybe a sonohystergram and I will see if they have shrunk. All I know is I am functioning finally, and I can go into work. Thank you Vitalzym, I am glad I gave it a chance, because its not cheap, and I guess I am thankful, the Canadian dollar is doing well, otherwise I would paying a lot more, but its worth the money. If you have Fibroids you know the pain I am taking about, don't give up, if you are trying this, give it time to work, I am glad I continued and was patient."

Carpal Tunnel Relief From Vitalzym!

"I have taken 3 capsules, 3 times a day for 2 days now. Whatever those Vitalzyme enzymes do to eat fibrin & inflammation, they sure act quickly to do their thing. Last night I mowed our entire yard and usually when I do this (& I do it weekly), the next morning my feet are all screwed up and hurting (from the hills and unlevel footing) and my right hand is in so much pain & numb due to my seasonal carpal tunnel (again from the motion of holding the mower handle etc) ... this morning for the first time since mowing season began my feet didn't ache and I could actually write with my right hand (I normally cannot hold a pen until about ten in the morning). God bless you and your company!"
Susan Shipe, July 2009

Why Should I Take Systemic Enzymes, Like Vitalzym?

Vitalzym Systemic Enzymes are responsible for everyday bodily processes, such as:

  • Metabolism
  • Digestion
  • Breathing
  • Movement
  • Liver function
  • Immune regulation
  • Viscosity of blood
  • Cellular detoxification
  • Energy production
  • Stamina
  • Ability to utilize vitamins and minerals

As you may know, enzymes are the essential building blocks of life. They are key to the body's ability to properly digest and benefit from the food we eat, and they provide the energy we use to rebuild muscles, cells, nerves, tissue, bone, and glands. As such, these enzymes spark the chemical reactions responsible for breathing, digestion, growth, reproduction, and most other body functions.

Dr. Max Wolf, M.D., who researched enzymes and hormones at Columbia University from the 1930's through the 1960's, determined that enzyme production diminishes in humans AFTER age 27. While humans have historically supplemented their enzyme levels by consuming fresh, raw foods, modern preservation and preparation techniques often destroy the enzymes these foods contain. These conditions create an enzyme deficiency that causes our bodies and normal body functions to break down.

This means we MUST supplement our diets with systemic enzymes like Vitalzym – those that offer system-wide benefits – just as we supplement the vitamins, minerals, and herbs that are essential for good health.

What ARE Vitalzym Systemic Enzymes?

They are proteins that are responsible for every chemical reaction that goes on in your body; governing all functions related to your tissues, muscles, bones, organs, and cells.  Every second of our lives, over 3,000 different enzymes are constantly renewing and changing, often at unbelievable speeds.

In a nutshell, enzymes are proteins that act as catalysts, speeding the rate at which biochemical reactions proceed but not altering the direction or nature of the reactions. Enzymes are found in every cell of EVERY living plant and animal, including humans! As biocatalysts, they either begin a reaction OR cause a reaction to speed up. Without enzymes, life would not exist, period!

The Enzymatic Process Explained

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 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 resembling 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" contained in the molecule of the enzyme's "substrate" (the molecule that 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 are free to part.

The Huge Benefits of Taking Vitalzym Systemic Enzymes

There are so many benefits to taking systemic enzymes like Vitalzym, that it's impossible to list them all. Briefly here are a few:

  • Speeds recovery from exercise and injury
  • Prevents the build up of excess fibrin and scar tissue
  • Cleanses the blood and gets rid of the sludge that will keep it thin and flowing properly
  • Accelerates tissue repair and significantly reduces swelling, bruising, and stiffness in patients following surgery
  • Reduces inflammation, speeds healing of bruises and other tissue injuries (including fractures), and reduces overall recovery time
  • Digests dead tissue such as cysts and arterial plaque, fibroids
  • Prevents swelling and fluid retention
  • Reduces pain, due to its ability to block the release of pain-inducing amines from inflamed tissues

What Happens During Vitalzym Systemic Enzyme Therapy
 

Systemic enzyme therapy utilizes enzyme supplementation to majorly increase the enzymes throughout our bodies, and restore your body to health. Even though you may THINK you are healthy you are missing thousands of systemic enzymes ever since the age of 27! Systemic enzymes have a multitude of uses. Most of us need to learn how to become familiar with controlling inflammation, fibrosis (which is scarring of our inner tissues), etc. We want to help you realize the importance of enzymes, which can help the liver get rid of toxins it's been holding onto.

The liver is the filter for all our bodies. The liver removes toxic material and either releases it into the colon for disposal or stores the toxins in the fat cells of the liver. If the liver's fat cells are already overburdened with toxins (which they usually are), then the organ will create fat cells elsewhere in the body in which to store toxins.

The negative symptoms associated with detox are generally due to the inability of the colon being unable to eliminate these toxins as rapidly as the liver excretes all the built up "junk" for disposal. If these symptoms of detoxing occur, then make sure you are drinking LOTS of water and increase your use of green foods. IT'S WORTH IT!!! LOOK AT WHAT SYSTEMIC ENZYMES WILL DO FOR YOU:

  • Vitalzym is a Natural Anti-Inflammatory

    Enzymes are the first line of defense against inflammation. Inflammation is known to be a reaction by the immune system to an irritation. Something like, let's say, an injury to your knee. Your immune system senses the irritation and creates a protein chain called a Circulating Immune Complex (CIC). This particular CIC is tagged specifically for the right knee (or wherever your injury is). (Nobel Prize in biology was won in 1999 by a scientist who found the tagging mechanism). Getting back to the CIC associated with that injured right knee, this specific CIC floats down to the injured knee. It causes redness, soreness and PAIN! These symptoms are in fact a signature of inflammation. At first the soreness, redness and pain are beneficial because we now have official warning we have been injured and we need to take care of the problem. The problem is, inflammation is self-perpetuating. Meaning, inflammation creates an irritation and in response the body makes CIC's.

    Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Celebrex, formerly Viox and the rest of the Non Steroidal anti Inflammatory Drugs all work by keeping the body from from making all the CIC's. The fact is, some CIC's are essential and vital to life. There are CIC's like those that maintain the lining of the intestine and those that keep the kidneys functioning properly! Not to mention the fact that they, along with acetaminophen, are highly toxic to our livers. Statistically, about 20,000 Americans die from these over the counter drugs and another 100,000 will wind up in the hospital with liver damage, kidney damage or bleeding intestines from the side effects of these drugs.

    Systemic enzymes like Vitalzym, however, have been shown to be perfectly safe and free of dangerous side effects. They have no LD-50, or toxic dosages. Best of all, systemic enzymes have also been shown to have a predisposition to tell the difference between the good CIC's and the bad CIC's. That's not all though, because best of all, systemic enzymes can tell the difference between the good CIC's and the bad ones. This is due to the fact that hydrolytic enzymes are lock and key mechanisms. Their "teeth" will only fit over the bad CIC's. Instead of preventing the creation of all CIC's, systemic enzymes "simply eat the bad CIC's. What does this do? This eliminates the bad and leaves the good CIC's to do their intended job of lowering inflammation everywhere in the body. With that, we can expect to lower pain which is a part of inflammation.

  • Vitalzym is Anti Fibrosis

    Here is the crux of the entire beauty of systemic enzymes - they "EAT'" scar tissue and fibrosis. Fibrosis is scar tissue and most doctors learn in anatomy it is fibrosis that eventually kills us all. In explanation, as we all age, and at about age 27 or thereabout, we have a diminishing number of natural occurring enzymes available in our bodies. Instead of our bodies releasing a good amount of enzymes each day, at about age 27, our bodies begin to dole out miniscule drops of enzymes. If our bodies continued to use the higher level of natural occurring enzymes, we would all be dead by age 40 or thereabout because we would be just about totally out of our own enzymes. For instance, Cystic Fibrosis patients who have virtually no enzyme production to speak of, even as little children, usually don't make it past their 20's. They die very young from restriction and shrinkage in their lungs from the formation of fibrosis or scar tissue.

    So our bodies begin, once again, to "dole" out our enzymes with an eyedropper instead of a tablespoon. The result of this is that the repair mechanism of your body goes off balance and has nothing to reduce the over abundance of fibrin it deposits in nearly everything from simple cuts, to the inside of internal organs and blood vessels.  In other words, every injury we sustain, no matter how slight, is a potential scar tissue or fibroid making event. Even plaque is an issue about which many people must be concerned. When the body begins to dole out minute drops of enzymes, this is when most women begin to have deposits of fibrin in the body. Women also suffer fibrin like fibrocystic breast disease, uterine fibroids and endometriosis. Detailed research indicates most all of us begin to grow arterial sclerotic (meaning scar tissue) plaque. Then spider web type fibrin winds it's way through our organs.  When this occurs, is when our organs begin to show a reduction in size, capacity and finally their efficient function over time. This then is why, when we age, our wounds heal with thicker, less pliable, weaker and very visible scars.

    If we replace the lost enzymes with Vitalzym, we can finally expect to control and reduce the amount of scar tissue and fibrosis in our bodies. Physicians in the U.S. are now discovering that even old scar tissue can be "removed" from surgical wounds, pulmonary fibrosis, kidney fibrosis and even keloids, years after their formation. Medical doctors in Europe and Asia have known this and used orally administered enzymes for such for over 40 years!

  • Vitalzym is Blood Cleansing

    The blood is not only the river of life; it's also the river through which the cells and organs dispose of their waste. Enzymes improve circulation by disposing of the excess fibrin that causes blood to sometimes get as thick as catsup or yogurt, creating the perfect environment for the formation of those dangerous blood clots. All of this material is supposed to be cleaned off by the liver on a "first pass" basis. (This simply means cleansing should occur the first time it passes through the liver).

    Looking at our world today, however, we are living in a seriously toxic world! Therefore, our livers are also subject to the toxic impact so prevalent in this world. The result is that the toxins remain in the liver instead of being eliminated as Nature intended. The result being, the waste remains in our livers and is passed on to the blood while it is awaiting enough room in that liver of ours to be eliminated naturally. The enzymes have been shown to help clean out our systems in many scientific research projects but our livers have to wait for enough room in the "toxic liver" to clean out that liver!

    Here is what happens, when systemic enzymes, like Vitalzym, are taken. They are ready to take the stress off the liver by being in the blood; they then do the following:

    • Cleaning excess fibrin from the blood and reducing the stickiness of blood cells. These two actions reduce the leading causes of stroke and heart attack; blood clots being a major cause of disablement and death in the world today. In this way, these two actions minimize the leading causes of stroke and heart attack - BLOOD CLOTS!

    • Breaking dead material down small enough so that it can immediately pass into the bowel.

    • Cleansing the FC receptors on the white blood cells, improving their function and availability to fight off infection.

    And here we come to the ONLY warning we have to give concerning the use of system enzymes like Vitalzym or any other systemic enzyme - DO NOT USE Systemic Enzymes (Vitalzym) IF YOU ARE A HEMOPHILIAC OR ARE ON PRESCRIPTION BLOOD THINNERS LIKE COUMADIN, HEPARIN AND PLAVIX. This type (like Vitalzym) of systemic enzymes cause the drugs to work better, so there is the possibility of thinning the blood too much.

  • Vitalzym is Immune System Modulating

    Enzymes are adaptogenic, seeking to restore a steady state to the body. When the immune system is running low, we become susceptible to infectious disease. When it's cranked up too high, then the system creates anti-bodies that attack it's own tissues, as are seen in the autoimmune diseases. Autoimmune diseases like Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis and Rheumatoid Arthritis are prime examples of immune system deficiencies. Systemic enzymes like Vitalzym "tone down immune function and eat away at the antibodies the immune system is making to attack its body's own immune system.

  • Vitalzym is Virus Fighting

    Viruses harm us by replicating in our bodies. To do this, a virus must bond itself to the DNA in our cells through the medium of its exterior protein cell wall. Anything that disrupts that cell wall inhibits the ability of viral replication by rendering individual viruses inert. Systemic enzymes can tell the difference between the proteins that are supposed to be in our bodies and those that are foreign or not supposed to be there again, the enzyme lock and key mechanisms. Vitalzym has the strongest protein eating effect of any enzyme due to its Serrapeptase content and can be of help in combating viruses.

Vitalzym Scientific Articles

Vitalzym REALLY WORKS!

"My husband sprained his ankle on Saturday and by Sunday his ankle had swollen to three times its normal size. On Sunday, I gave him 3 Vitalzym instead of the advil he requested. I told him it would work better for the inflammation and pain. Within an hour he was convinced Vitalzym was helping, so he started searching the web for the "correct" activation dose for a sprain. We discovered he should take 5 Vitalzym, three times a day, which he did on Monday. Within 24 hours of his first dose ALL of the swelling and inflammation was gone along with the throbbing pain. Vitalzym really works!!!!"
Nat D., Colorado Springs, March 2009

Vitalzym Testimonials

"I am very excited about Vitalzym and how it got rid of my fibroids within 2 months. I've already passed the word on to others about this fantastic product. Wish I'd known about Vitalzym a long time ago."
S.F., Bermuda

 

"I just started taking Vitalzym a few months ago and wanted to tell you all the things it's done for me so far. I was in a car accident that left a deep bone bruise on my leg. This happened to me before and it took almost a year to heal. This time it was gone in one week! Also, my blood pressure has gone done and my good cholesterol has increased. Best of all, the arthritic pain and inflammation in my hands has improved tremendously. Thank you Vitalzym!"
Eleanor Bates, Lockport, NY, 12/13/07

 

"Just wanted to drop you a line and thank you for the really excellent information on the Vitalzym CD. This stuff is as close to a miracle cure as any pharmaceutical drug I've ever used. I started using Vitalzym in an attempt to deal with Peyroines disease. An interesting side benefit has been that most of my acne scarring from a severe case of cystic acne as a youth has disappeared. My complexion is as clear now as it has been in my entire adult life I'm 52 now!! Vitalzym has helped the Peyroines problem but I still have the condition to some degree, in addition to BHP. Thought I might ask your advice on practitioners in my area "Houston" in your area of medical practice, or possible if you can recommend a good preparation of the quality of Vitalzym for BHP. The Urologists keep prescribing stuff that makes me sicker so I'm not taking their advice any longer. Well thanks anyway for your genuine interest in peoples health."
Brian R. - A very satisfied Vitalzym customer... 3/12/07

 

"I just had to write and tell you that I went back today for a recheck of a liver cyst and it was gone. I tried to tell the doctor that the only thing I've done differently is add Vitalzym, but he would not listen......Thank you so much for your work."
D. B. 10/13/06

 

"God Bless you all for such great work. Vitalzym is amazing, and the articles, including one on aspirin & poison seed: Soy.........In one month my fibroid has been reduced from grapefruit to lemon size. Your work is most amazing!"
L.H., 1/30/07

 

"I've given Vitalzym to my 14 year old dog who recently broke his left hind femur. He is running and walking within 3 weeks of surgery, so I know it works."
P.T., Las Vegas, NV

 

"I appreciated speaking with you this April. The information you gave me proved very valuable and useful; I have incorporated much of it into my health care program. By using the Vitalzym, I have been able to stop my asthma medications. More importantly to me, it has definitely helped my Parkinson's. I am taking 30 Vitalzym per day. Again, thanks very much for your help. Respectfully"
Dr. K.S., Ohio 8/4/2006

 

"WOW!!! Vitalzym sure has helped. I have suffered with Rheumatoid Arthris for the past 5 years. I was told I would have to be on arthritis meds for the rest of my life. 3 years ago my mother thought I would be in a wheel chair within a year. After taking about a dozen RX meds, I quit it all and went to see a Naturalpathic MD. He got me started with an elimination diet, fish oil, Glutamine powder and Chinese herbs. From there I kept trying things. I tried another brand of systemic enzymes. I saw a great improvement. When I went to buy another bottle, the woman at the health food store reccommended Vitalzym. Now I can crochet, ride my quad, my Harley Davidson, hike, and get through the day with NO PAIN!! I am very impressed and happy! ........."
MaryJo B.....

 

"About a month ago I sprained my ankle while dirt biking. My friend thought it was broken because it was very swollen. I went to the doctor and was told that I had strained ligaments in my ankle as well as a pulled calf muscle. He told me that often times sprains take much longer to heal than broken bones and scheduled me for rehab. At about the same time that I sprained my ankle, I also found your web site and ordered a couple of bottles of Vitalyzm. I started taking 5 pills 3 times daily and almost immediately noticed the swelling on my ankle subsiding. On my second rehab session my therapist was amazed that the swelling had subsided so much and said that I was a "fast healer". He also told me at my first session that it would probably be between 3-4 months at best for my ankle to heal completely. My chiropractor said in his experience that it would take about a year to heal. It's been three weeks since I started on the Vitalzym and I would say that my ankle is close to 90% healed! There is no swelling at all (actually, there hasn't been swelling for quite some time). I am even able to do workouts for my legs using weights! This product is fantastic! Thank you so much."
Ken G - 9/7/2006

 

"I am still taking the Vitalzym and it is still shrinking the fibroid! I'm taking 10-15 pills a day, & it feels as thought the fibroids have shrunk at least 50%...maybe more. I have (or had) multiple tumors! Thanks sooooooo much for getting back to me with all of you information in previous e-mails! It has been extremely helpful!!!!!!! God Bless"
D.H. - 7/31/2006

 

"I was in AZ the end of July 2006 and I was in a health food store looking for something to cleanse my system. While I was talking to the clerk on the best product to use she found out I had fibromyalgia. She introduced me to your product and told me this worked for you. After trying a million things over the past 15 years I said why not. I have been taking for a month now and I have eliminated the following pills; flexeral 10 mg, cymbaltat 60 mg, celebrex 200 mg & tramadol 37.5/325. Not all sure how it works but I have been pain free for the first time in 15 years. I am a firm believer in your product, Thank you for giving me back the control of my life."
J. V. H. - Overland Park, KS - 9/8/2006

 

"Thought you might be interested to know that Vitalzym seems to have cleared up a small patch of chronic dermatitus I had (which was not why I was taking them!). Cortisone cream only seemed to make it go away for a while and then it would come back. The only thing I changed was that I started taking Vitalzym (3x3 daily) and havent needed to use the cream since I started taking them."
B.S. 8/17/2006

 

"After taking just 2 bottles of Vitalzym together with Myomin according to your advice, I've lost 10 cm from around my belly where my large 11 x 9 inch fibroids were protruding. So, that's approximately half the fibroids gone! I shall start with Natural Progesterone Cream soon. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
N.Y. 12/31/06

 

"Thank you so much. Personally I take vitalzym 5 x a day and myomim. It has changed my life. I was told by a cardiologist 5 years ago that in 10 years I would have a stroke. I saw the same cardiologist last week and he was full of praises. My blood pressure was normal and I was in excellent shape and health. Thanks again for all your help and support."

The Extra Strength Vitalzym Label: (It's the shorter label, below and 2-3 times stronger than the Vitalzym Hybrid!)

World Nutrition Note: The corn protein is NOW changed on the label to: "ph resistant enteric coating)" (See below for details on NON-GMO corn protein). 

The corn protein (pH resistant enteric coating), which derived from non-GMO corn, is part of the enteric coating around the capsule, and comprises less than 1% of the total product. There has not been a single report of an allergic reaction due to the corn protein in Vitalzym, but we suggest that if you have concerns about allergies please contact your healthcare provider regarding your own personal sensitivity levels prior to taking this product. Corn protein was chosen over commonly-used phthalates (a dangerous plasticizer) for the enteric coating of the Vitalzym capsules.

The soy lecithin acts an emulsifier, and is only in trace amounts - less than 1% of the entire product. Testing of soy lecithin has confirmed that no phytoestrogens are delivered to the body, and therefore there is no impact on hormones. People with a soy allergy have never reported any issues with Vitalzym capsules.
NEW Vitalzym Ingredients Original Hybrid Vitalzym Ingredients

Vitalzym
Hybrid Ingredients:

Proteolytic enzyme (Protease):

The label to the right is for the Original Hybrid Vitalzym. The term "proteolytic" refers to all enzymes that digest protein. Other classes of enzymes include Amylase a digestive enzyme that breaks down carbohydrates and Lipase a digestive enzyme that breaks down fat during the digestive process. Each of these help in the digestion of food which in turn helps with absorption of those essential nutrients in the diet. In the body, proteolytic digestive enzymes are produced in the pancreas, but supplemental forms of enzymes may come from fungal or bacterial sources, extraction from the pancreas of livestock animals (trypsin/chymotrypsin) or extraction from plants (such as papain from the papaya and Bromelain from pineapples).

The primary uses of proteolytic enzymes in dietary supplements are used as digestive enzymes, anti-inflammatory agents and pain relievers. There are a number of clinical trials showing the benefit of using oral proteolytic enzymes as a digestive aid. Proteolytic enzymes are also theorized to help reduce symptoms of food allergies and as a treatment for rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune diseases.

Perhaps the strongest evidence for benefits of proteolytic enzyme supplements come from numerous European studies showing various enzyme blends to be effective in accelerating recovery from exercise and injury in sportsmen as well as tissue repair in patients following surgery. In one study of footballers suffering from ankle injuries, proteolytic enzyme supplements accelerated healing and got players back on the field about 50% faster than athletes assigned to receive a placebo tablet(1). A handful of other small trials in athletes have shown enzymes can help reduce inflammation, speed healing of bruises and other tissue injuries (including fractures) and reduce overall recovery time when compared to athletes taking a placebo(2-8). In patients recovering from facial and various reconstructive surgeries, treatment with proteolytic enzymes significantly reduced swelling, bruising and stiffness compared to placebo groups (9-11).
 

VITALZYM HYBRID 450 CT FORMULA

(See label above)
Vitalzym Hybrid 450 ct powder capsules

 

Serrapeptase in Vitalzym:

Also known as Serratia peptidase, Serrapeptase is a proteolytic enzyme isolated from the non-pathogenic enterobacteria Serratia E15. The enzyme is found naturally in the intestine of the silkworm, which is used by the silkworm to dissolve the cocoon and emerge as a moth. When consumed in unprotected tablets or capsules, the enzyme is destroyed by acid in the stomach. However, when enterically coated the enzyme passes through the stomach unchanged, and can be absorbed in the intestine.

It has many clinical uses including: as an anti-inflammatory agent (particularly for post traumatic swelling) for Fibrocystic breast disease. for Bronchitis (Serrapeptase loosens and expels mucous). Serrapeptase digests dead tissue, blood clots, cysts, and arterial plaque. The late German physician Dr. Hans Nieper, used serrapeptase to treat arterial blockage in his coronary patients.

Clinical studies show that serrapeptase induces fibrinolytic, anti-inflammatory and anti-edemic (prevents swelling and fluid retention) activity in a number of tissues, and that its anti-inflammatory effects are superior to other proteolytic enzymes (12). Besides reducing inflammation, one of serrapeptase's most profound benefits is reduction of pain, due to its ability to block the release of pain-inducing amines from inflamed tissues.(13) Physicians throughout Europe and Asia have recognized the anti-inflammatory and pain-blocking benefits of this naturally occurring substance and are using it in treatment as an alternative to salicylates, ibuprofen, and other NSAIDs(14).

Bromelain & Papain in Vitalzym:

Both Bromelain and Papain are plant derived proteolytic enzymes. Bromelain, also known as bromelin, is a protein-digesting enzyme extracted from the flesh and stem of the pineapple plant, Ananas comosus. Papain, is a proteolytic enzyme isolated from the papaya plant, Carica papaya.

Bromelain is most notable for its effectiveness in the reduction of inflammation and decreasing swelling, but the scope of its benefits continues to increase. As a natural anti-inflammatory enzyme, bromelain has many uses. Arthritis patients may reduce the swelling that causes joint pain by taking bromelain. 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) (15,16). Prevention of the adhesiveness of platelets to endothelial cell walls was accomplished with 0.1 mcg/ml of Bromelain(16a). Thus the benefit of bromelain occurs over a broad range of doses, and even small amounts may be beneficial to anyone at risk to thrombotic heart attack or stroke.

Papain has been shown to be effective in preventing burn wound infection and helping remove dead cells(17). Papain is also used for the following: Defibrinating wounds in hospitals Preventing cornea scar deformation Used in treatments of jellyfish and insect stings To treat edemas, inflammatory processes, and in the acceleration of wound healing In low doses as an indigestion medicine Papain has been used to treat ulcers, dissolve membranes in diphtheria and reduce swelling, fever and adhesions after surgery.

Amla in Vitalzym:

Amla, also known as Indian gooseberry (Emblica officinalis) is the richest source of Vitamin C. It also contains tannic acid, glucose, protein, cellulose and Calcium. Amla is useful for stomach problems, it is antipyretic, hair tonic and nerve brain tonic. It's also useful in anemia, hyperacidity and in gynecological problems and epistaxis. Amla is considered to have restorative and preventive properties.

Rutin in Vitalzym:

One of the many existing Flavonoids. Flavonoids are a class of water-soluble plant pigments. Flavonoids support health by strengthening capillaries and other connective tissue, and some function as anti-inflammatory, antihistaminic, and antiviral agents. Rutin and several other flavonoids may also protect blood vessels. Rutin was shown to stimulate wound healing in rats and augment the tensile strength of scar tissue significantly(18).

How to Take Vitalzym - Read Carefully!

Take Vitalzym on an empty stomach - Do not take Vitalzym systemic enzymes with food or they will become just a very expensive digestive enzyme. These are SYSTEMIC enzymes, not digestive enzymes, so wait at least half an hour before eating (preferably 1 hour), or 1 hour or more after eating.

Drink plenty of water with Vitalzym - You should drink LOTS of water when you take Vitalzym systemic enzymes, and also other times during the day, to assist your body in flushing out the toxins and debris (of which their will be TONS!)

Try to spread your Vitalzym doses over a 18 to 24 hour period – Most people take their daily Vitalzym dose in three sessions – first thing in the morning, last thing at night, and the rest in between. That way you'll have these very important systemic enzymes working in your body almost continuously. If you have any stomach reactions, you may take it with a small carbohydrate snack to help.

When Vitalzym "kicks in" there will be no doubt in your mind that it is working! An activation dose is the amount of enzymes you need to begin to feel a benefit from the product. The recommended dosage given on the label is meant as a maintenance dose for those with out any complaints. Consumers with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, arthritis, auto immune conditions, fibrosis complaints and inflammation symptoms need to find the dose at which they begin to feel better. They can then maintain that dosage of systemic enzymes, or after 3 months try to reduce the dose and see if the benefits are still felt.

Finding the Right Vitalzym Dosage for You:

Start taking 1 capsule of Vitalzym (or less) 3 times a day, in-between meals, at least 1 hour away from food. (If you know your body is highly acidic, you may want to start with an even lower dose and work up.) If in 3 days no benefits are felt, increase the dose by 1 extra capsule every day. Continue increasing the number of capsules taken until a benefit is felt. Most will feel the Vitalzym kick in somewhere between 3 - 6 or more Vitalzym capsules, 3 times a day. There is no toxicity from systemic enzymes, (no LD-50). Some customers who have suffered accidents have been placed on 5 or more Vitalzym capsules 3 times a day by their doctors for a few weeks until the bulk of their inflammation and its resultant pain are gone. Then they are brought down to a much lower maintenance dose to prevent the formation of scar tissue. Vitalzym Cardio directions are entirely different, (only 3 a day!!!) so check those out also!

WARNING: Hemophiliacs and those on prescription blood thinners should not use Vitalzym or any other systemic enzyme without a doctor's supervision, as the enzymes help the drugs to work better and may overly thin the blood.

FINDING YOUR ACTIVATION DOSE FOR VITALZYM

Suggested Dosing for Common and Chronic Conditions:

When Vitalzym systemic enzymes "kick in" there will be no doubt in your mind that it is working! An activation dose is the amount of enzymes you need to take before you begin to feel a benefit from the product. Vitalzym's recommended dosage given on the label is meant as a maintenance dose for those without ANY complaints. Consumers with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, arthritis, auto immune conditions, fibrosis complaints and inflammation symptoms should be endeavoring to find the dose at which they begin to feel better, which will be MUCH higher! They then can elect to maintain that dose, and after 3 months, try to reduce the dose and see if the benefits are still felt. If not, go back up to the higher dose of Vitalzym. You don't have to worry about taking too high a dose of Vitalzym - only the Vitalzym Cardio should stay at the lower levels.

The therapeutic doses listed below are generalizations of what has worked for most consumers of VITALZYM with the conditions below. Your final activation dose may vary. Please remember; to accomplish the following, Vitalzym systemic enzymes MUST be taken on an empty stomach, that is, in between meals on an empty stomach.

What Are Systemic Enzymes and What Do They Do?

By: Dr. William Wong ND, PhD

The word "systemic" means body wide. Systemic enzymes are those that operate not just for digestion but throughout your body in every system and organ. But let's take first things first, what is an enzyme?

An enzyme is a biocatalyst - something that makes something else work or work faster. Chemical reactions are generally slow things, enzymes speed them up. Without enzymes the chemical reactions that make up our life would be too slow for life as we know it. (As slow as sap running down a tree in winter). For life to manifest as we know it, enzymes are essential to speed up the reactions. We have roughly some 3000 enzymes in our bodies and that results in over 7000 enzymic reactions. Most of these enzymes are derived or created from what we think of as the protein digesting enzymes. But while digestion is an important part of what enzymes do, it's almost the absolute last function. First and foremost these body wide proteolytic (protein eating) enzymes have the following actions:

Vitalzym is a Natural Anti-Inflammatory

They are the first line of defense against inflammation. (1,2,3). Inflammation is a reaction by the immune system to an irritation. Let's say you have an injured right knee. The immune system sensing the irritation the knee is undergoing creates a protein chain called a Circulating Immune Complex (CIC for short), tagged specifically for that right knee. (The Nobel Prize in biology was won in 1999 by a scientist who discovered this tagging mechanism). This CIC floats down to the right knee and causes pain, redness and swelling are the classic earmarks for inflammation. This at first is a beneficial reaction; it warns us that a part of ourselves is hurt and needs attention. But, inflammation is self-perpetuating, itself creating an irritation that the body makes CIC's to in response!

Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Celebrex, Vioxx and the rest of the Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs all work by keeping the body from making all CIC's. This ignores the fact that some CIC's are vital to life, like those that maintain the lining of the intestine and those that keep the kidneys functioning! Not to mention the fact that the NSAID's, along with acetaminophen, are highly toxic to the liver. Every year 20,000 Americans die from these over the counter drugs and another 100,000 will wind up in the hospital with liver damage, kidney damage or bleeding intestines from the side effects of these drugs. (4,5).

Systemic enzymes on the other hand are perfectly safe and free of dangerous side effects. They have no LD-50, or toxic dose. (6). Best of all systemic enzymes can tell the difference between the good CIC's and the bad ones because hydrolytic enzymes are lock and key mechanisms and their "teeth" will only fit over the bad CIC's. So instead of preventing the creation of all CIC's, systemic enzymes just "eat" the bad ones and in so doing lower inflammation everywhere. With that, pain is lowered also.

Vitalzym is Anti Fibrosis

Enzymes eat scar tissue and fibrosis. (7). Fibrosis is scar tissue and most doctors learn in anatomy that it is fibrosis that eventually kills us all. Let me explain. As we age, which starts at 27, we have a diminishing of the bodies' output of enzymes. This is because we make a finite amount of enzymes in a lifetime and we use up a good deal of them by the time we are 27. At that point the body knows that if it keeps up that rate of consumption we'll run out of enzymes and be dead by the time we reach our 40's. (Cystic Fibrosis patients who have virtually no enzyme production to speak of, even as children usually don't make it past their 20's before they die of the restriction and shrinkage in the lungs from the formation of fibrosis or scar tissue).

So our body, in it's wisdom, begins to dole out our enzymes with an eyedropper instead of with a tablespoon; as a result the repair mechanism of the body goes out of balance and is unable to reduce the over abundance of fibrin it deposits in nearly every thing from simple cuts, to the inside of our internal organs and blood vessels. This is when most women begin to develop things like fibrocystic breast disease, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, and we all grow arterial sclerotic (meaning scar tissue) plaque, and have fibrin beginning to spider web its way inside of our internal organs reducing their size and function over time. This is why as we age our wounds heal with thicker, less pliable, weaker and very visible scars.

If we replace the lost enzymes, we can control and reduce the amount of scar tissue and fibrosis our bodies have. As physicians in the US are now discovering, even old scar tissue can be "eaten away" from surgical wounds, pulmonary fibrosis, kidney fibrosis and even keloids years after their formation. Medical doctors in Europe and Asia have known this and have used orally administered enzymes for these situations for over 40 years!

Vitalzym is Blood Cleansing

The blood is not only the river of life, it is also the river through which the cells and organs dispose of their garbage and dead material. Enzymes improve circulation by eating the excess fibrin that causes blood to sometimes get as thick as catsup or yogurt, creating the perfect environment for the formation of clots. All of this material is supposed to be cleared by the liver on its "first pass", or the first time it goes through but given the sluggish and near toxic or toxic states of everyone's liver these days that seldom happens. So the sludge remains in the blood waiting for the liver to have enough free working space and enough enzymes to clean the trash out of the blood. This can take days, and in some cases, weeks! (8).

When systemic enzymes are taken, they stand ready in the blood and take the strain off of the liver by:

  1. Cleaning excess fibrin from the blood and reducing the stickiness of blood cells. These two actions minimize the leading causes of stroke and heart attack causing blood clots. (8).
  2. Breaking dead material down small enough that it can immediately pass into the bowel. (8).
  3. Cleanse the FC receptors on the white blood cells improving their function and availability to fight off infection. (9).

And here we come to the only warning we have to give concerning the use of Vitalzym or any other systemic enzyme - don't use the product if you are a hemophiliac or are on prescription blood thinners like Coumadin, Heparin and Plavix, without direct medical supervision. The enzymes cause the drugs to work better so there is the possibility of thinning the blood too much.

Vitalzym is Immune System Modulating

Enzymes are adaptogenic seeking to restore a steady state to the body. (9). When the immune system is running low we become susceptible to infectious disease, when it's cranked up too high then the system creates antibodies that attack it's own tissues as are seen in the auto immune diseases of MS, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Lupus. Here the enzymes will tone down immune function and eat away at the antibodies the immune system is making to attack its bodies own tissue.

Vitalzym is Virus Fighting

Viruses harm us by replicating in our bodies. To do this a virus must bond itself to the DNA in our cells through the medium of its exterior protein cell wall. Anything that disrupts that cell wall inhibits the ability of viral replication by rendering individual viruses inert. (10,11). Systemic enzymes can tell the difference between the proteins that are supposed to be in your body and those that are foreign or not supposed to be there, (again the enzyme lock and key mechanism). Vitalzym has the strongest protein eating effect of any enzyme due to its Serrapeptase content and can be of help in combating viruses.

One note: many in the States have learned in school that enzymes are too big a protein to be absorbed through the gut. The pioneering research done in the US by Dr. Max Wolf (MD & PhD x7) at Columbia University in the 40's through the 70's has not made it to the awareness of most doctors. There are currently over 200 peer reviewed research articles dealing with the absorption, utilization and therapeutic action of orally administered systemic enzymes. A search through Pub Med using the key words: serrapeptase, papain, bromelain, trypsin, chymo trypsin, nattokinase and systemic enzyme will yield some of the extensive work. Systemic enzymes now have a 4 decade plus history of widespread medical use in central Europe and Japan.

Vitalzym with it's serrapeptase based blend of enzymes is the strongest and fastest working systemic enzyme on the planet with research to prove it.

Vitalzym Systemic Enzymes

One of the most powerful systemic enzymes on the market.

Systemic enzymes vs. digestive enzymes Digestive enzymes conduct their actions in the stomach to digest food, while systemic enzymes are enteric coated, or designed to survive the stomach's acid. This way they pass through the stomach into the intestines, where they are absorbed into the body.

Vitalyzm is a blend of enzymes that work synergistically to provide a total system support. It contains Serrapeptase, Bromelain and Papain. It also contains Amylase and Lipase. In addition to enzymes, it is supplemented with antioxidants Amla and Rutin.

Vitalzym is recommended to help remove scar tissue and excess fibrin in the blood, modulate immune function, fight viruses, cleanse the blood and detoxifying the liver. The supplement is believed by many suffers of arthritis, fibromylagia, arteriosclerosis, auto immune disorders, traumatic injuries, fibroids, and other conditions.

Benefits of Vitalzym Systemic Enzymes

  • Speeds recovery from exercise and injury
  • Prevents the build up of excess fibrin and scar tissue
  • Accelerates tissue repair and significantly reduces swelling, bruising, and stiffness in patients following surgery
  • Reduces inflammation, speeds healing of bruises and other tissue injuries(including fractures), and reduces overall recovery time
  • May digest dead tissue such as cysts and arterial plaque
  • Prevents swelling and fluid retention
  • Reduces pain, due to its ability to block the release of pain-inducing amines from inflamed tissues

The Highlights to Vitalzym Systemic Enzymes

  • Vitalzym is NATURAL; it contains no animal derivatives, artificial flavors, artificial colors, yeast or gluten.
  • Vitalzym is lactose free and contains no harmful talc.
  • Vitalzym is produced with enterically coated enzymes - no refrigeration needed!
  • Vitalzym's formulation permits it to operate in an extremely wide pH range, allowing for better absorption in the intestines.
  • Vitalzym uses pure, high- potency enzymes rather than extracts.

Vitalzym Systemic Enzymes vs. Digestive Enzymes

Digestive enzymes conduct their actions in the stomach to digest food, while systemic enzymes are enteric coated, or designed to survive the stomach's acid. This way they pass through the stomach into the intestines, where they are absorbed into the body.

"The Essentials of Life and Wellness"

By: Dr. William Wong ND, PhD

For at least the last 40 years most of us have been taking vitamin and mineral supplements and have been doing and feeling somewhat better. Almost daily now there is more and more information on the function of some nutrient and on it's place in the overall scheme of health.

But I've got a question! If these nutrients fill their allotted functions then why don't they seem to work the same for everyone? In other words, they seem to help some folks and not to work at all in others! Is there some underlying thing that allows these nutrient substances to perform their actions? Are vitamins, minerals and herbs the do all end all of attaining wellness or, are they the bricks and cement that must be placed on a solid foundation before they can take up their tasks solidly?

Let's redefine some terms. In 1913, Dr. Funk discovered nutritional substances he called "Vital Amines" or Vitamins for short. Without getting into biochemistry it turns out that vitamins are not amines but coenzymes, substances that help enzymes to work. An enzyme is a huge protein that speeds up chemical reactions. Without enzymes, chemical reactions would happen so slowly that life would not be able to exist at all. The human body has some 3000+ enzymes and over 7000 enzymic reactions.

Most folks think of enzymes as being involved only in digestion. This is among the last things that enzymes do. Of all the enzymes in the body, the protein cleaving (or cutting-eating) ones are the most important. These have 4 primary actions, they:

  • Reduce inflammation
  • Balance the repair mechanism and prevent fibrosis, (the buildup of scar tissue)
  • Clean the blood
  • Modulate the immune system

Folks who do not experience the beneficial reactions expected from their coenzymes (vitamins) possibly don't have the enzymes that the coenzyme is supposed to help! The human body produces a finite amount of enzymes. From the age of 27 on, that enzyme production begins to wane. Dr. Max Wolf, an MD with 7 other Ph.D.'s after his name, researched enzymes and hormones at Columbia University from the 1930's through the 1960's. He found that round about 27 most folks stop making as many enzymes as they used to and that this event started the cycle of aging. In physiology we are taught that old age begins at 27!

The progression of aging goes like this:

Round about age 27: Enzyme production drops - 27-35 marks the time when most of our aches, pains and arthritic changes begin to set in. Fibrosis begins building in the organs, blood vessels and muscles. Immune function begins to lag which is further complicated by high stress lifestyles. Blood begins to become thicker and harder to circulate.

From 35 to 45 the drop in enzymes and stress of lifestyle causes a reduction in the all-important sexual hormones of testosterone and progesterone. Sex drive, mental drive, zest for life, bone density, muscle mass and overall energy go down significantly.

At 45, we begin to have trouble absorbing the nutrients we need to maintain the 4 types of tissue we have in our bodies and these tissues begin to break down and malfunction. Here also from lack of proper eating and exercise complicated by smoking or air pollution, our blood is as thick as catsup. We don't have great circulation and oxygen is not getting every where we need to get it to! Especially up to our brains.

From 50 through 60, we lose an estimated 10% muscle mass a year so that by the time we are 60 we are at bare bones minimal muscle mass to move us around - getting out of bed, off the potty or out of a deep chair becomes a chore. If the thighs and pelvic muscles, which are the strongest ones in the body are weak and have trouble getting you up then how are the other muscles doing?

From 60 onward, our internal organs begin to shrink and further malefaction. That goes as well for the brain. The brain is 60 to 70% cholesterol. Everything we think with is based on a fat linked to a protein. If we are lacking for the good fats needed to produce neurotransmitters and maintain itself, then the brain begins to shrink and malfunction. If you've ever seen the MRI picture of an Alzheimer patient's brain, it looks like a dried, shrunken, cracked jello mold someone left out on the kitchen table under a ceiling fan for a week! The last 30 years of the low cholesterol craze has done nothing to lower the rate of heart disease and everything to increase the rate of the formerly rare Alzheimer's! Look in any Alzheimer's ward, are there any fat people there?

How do we stave off these ravages? If we are in the midst of them, how do we slow their progress down? And how do we make the vitamins and minerals we are taking work better. We need to go back to the beginning of the degeneration and replace what we're missing.

Let's touch on again why vitamins, minerals and herbs alone don't work. Let's look at the lives or deaths rather, of some of the greatest nutritional teachers and practitioners of our time: Dr. Paul Kellogg - heart attack. Dr. Bernard Jenkins - prostate cancer. Dr. Carlton Frederick's - lung cancer. Dr. Pavo Aerola - stroke. Dr. Paul Bragg drowned after being knocked unconscious in the water by his surfboard at the age of 93! What differentiated Dr. Bragg from the rest?

Look at the bodies of some of the better known nutritional teachers and "natural" doctors now...go ahead think of them. Their faces and pictures are on books and television constantly. Are they severely overweight? Or, are they so thin and worn that they look as if they've just stepped out of a Siberian prison camp? If taking all of these good vitamins, minerals and herbs do it all then why did Kellogg, Jenkins** (See Note), Fredericks and Aerola get sick and die. Why are the current gurus of "integrative medicine" overweight or emaciated, why don't they look like Dr. Bragg did, a handsome, muscular, vibrant man glowing with energy and power even in his 90's.

Here we go back to Dr. Wolfs' work and we start with, you guessed it, enzymes. If we maintained a high enzyme intake from our young years then we held off the changes that low enzyme levels precipitated. This is what Dr. Bragg did, through his mainly raw fruit and vegetable diet he replaced or substituted for many of the enzymes his body lagged in making.

This kept his hormone levels high throughout his life. Testosterone maintained the size and mass of his bone structure, his muscle mass and most importantly his brain. In men it has been found that the brain structure known as the medial amygdala is larger that it is in women. This is where a mans drive and zest for life come from.

As men age and testosterone levels go down (round about 35 to 45) estrogen levels go up. This causes the medial amygdala to shrink and with the shrinking goes a mans mental energy. A man in his 50's has more estrogen than his wife! High estrogen levels bring depression, anger, weight gain, lack of libido, mood swings and decreased erection size. We now know that it is estrogen that converts to the dreaded hormone Di Hydro testosterone (DHT) that wrecks our prostate and causes us to lose our hair! (Studies have confirmed this - swollen prostates and severe hair loss don't happen to testosterone dominant men in their teens and 20's).

With gals, the drop in progesterone levels to near 0 before and after menopause causes much the same effects, i.e. lack of mental drive, depression, moodiness, loss of bone and muscle mass, weight gain, etc. For decades MD's have concentrated on the estrogen after menopause. While it is true that estrogen levels in these women are lower than they previously were, their progesterone and testosterone levels are practically nonexistent making them still estrogen dominant. Estrogen is the fuel that sparks fibrocystic breast disease, breast cancer, uterine fibroids and cervical cancer.

OK, so we did not do what Dr. Bragg did and eat enzymes from a young age. So, once they are gone, we'll need to replace them. What Next?

Oxygen. We have been 'plagued' by all the nutritional data about antioxidants for at least 15 years leading most folks to think that oxygenation is a bad thing. The strongest antioxidant you can find is to wrap your lips around a tailpipe! Life is an oxidative process! All disease states arise from, are fed by or are complicated by a lack of oxygen.

Oxygen not only feeds tissue and is vital to life, oxygen will also; kill viruses, burn bacteria, singe yeast, and dissolve cancer. Disease states are anaerobic. All bugs hate oxygen. Cancer cells for example, feed off of glycogen (anaerobic respiration), and die in the strong presence of oxygen! Part of a healthy immune system is to have the circulation, rich red blood cells and clean thin blood needed to carry oxygen throughout the body to every nook and cranny thereby killing off anything that may be thinking of festering there due to the lack of sufficient oxygen.

So we add Oxygen to our mix.

Finally we need to have an efficient outside to efficiently and painlessly carry our efficient insides around! For this, aerobic training will not do. All of the jazz exercise, yoga, karate aerobics, and even swimming and walking simply will not do. For this we have to strength train! Mind you I said strength training not body building. There is a huge difference I'll get to explain in a bit.

First let's look at something known as Wolfes' (a different Wolf this time) physiological law. A physiological law is an uncontested truth. That's the way it works - no questions about it! Wolfes' law states: "Mineralization is laid into bone along axial lines of stress". What that means is that unless we compress hard, tug hard and yank hard on a bone, it will not fill well with minerals or maintain it's mineral mass. Most MD's think Wolfes' law can be fulfilled by simple weight bearing as in walking,,,they are dead wrong. For one thing, while walking, what weight bearing do the arms, shoulders and mid back do? How can they benefit from the walking? For another, the first principle of exercise is that a muscle prefers to get its exercise in its primary range of motion in as great a range of motion as it can safely do. This will stress the bones sufficiently to produce the adaptive response of mineralizing. Walking has a mere 13 degrees of range of motion at the hip and knee when the hip is capable of 160 degrees of range and the knee 135 degrees. So how much exercise is 13 degrees? Not much. For walking to be a good exercise in bone building for the pelvis and lower extremity, you would have to going very fast up hill both ways....coming and going. Not likely to happen.

Now -- what's this difference between strength training and body building? A heck of a lot. Body building bloats muscles through a process known as hypertrophy and does not produce a lot of strength for the size. Real strength training on the other hand produces dense strong muscle through a process called hyperplasia. Do any of the lightweight Olympic weight lifting champions look like bodybuilders do? No. Do the men in the "Worlds Strongest Man" competitions look like bodybuilders? No. Look at the bantam and lightweight class of Olympic lifters. Yet these small men and women are some 3 to 4 times stronger and more able than the biggest of bodybuilders. We are not going for kissable beautiful biceps. We are shooting for useable strength for the Activities of Daily Living (ADL's) and:

  • to keep our circulation up,
  • our bones strong,
  • and very importantly increase the number of mitochondria in the muscle cells.

The energy we use for everything in our lives is produced by mitochondria. It is these furnaces of the cells where Adenosine Tri Phosphate is produced (ATP). ATP is the sugar everything in our bodies is powered by. Most all of the ATP in the body is made in the muscles. The brain uses 33% of the bodies' daily energy, the eyes 33% and the remainder of our body the rest! If we have lowered numbers of mitochondria, as in Mononucleosis, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue or due to age and loss of muscle, then all of our energy is significantly reduced and we are in a fog.

The only thing that can significantly increase the number of mitochondria in our bodies is STRENGTH TRAINING. Period. And yes, I know that for the last 20 years the medical emphasis has been on the aerobic training of the heart. Again research now shows that couch potatoes are living as long as their marathon running cousins and, that runners are dying of heart disease anyway while they sink their immune systems and wreck their joints with all the aerobic work! As we age, frame strength becomes more important than heart endurance. When was the last time you ran after the postman because he forgot to pick up a letter? But you arise from bed, the toilet and chairs every day. Strength is important not only in maintaining the circulation to our extremities but to perform all of the activities of daily living from blow drying our hair, to serving the table, to picking the skillet up from that bottom shelf! Nuff said.

Let's put this all together: When we only take vitamins, minerals and herbs, as important as they are, we are skirting around the outside of the essentials for health. If we just take supplements and not replace the enzymes we are wasting a good bit of money, expectation and time.

If we don't raise our levels of the sexual hormones, i.e. progesterone and testosterone, then we cannot stop or reverse the bone and muscle loss; we'll be depressed, gain fat and have no drive for life.

If we don't have high levels of circulating oxygen, we'll have bugs grow and fester throughout our bodies and have low energy and shortened life span.

If we don't maintain our frame, we can forget the rest of the program as it will give out and disease regardless of whatever else we do.

So again the cornerstones of life and wellness are:

Enzymes from juicing, raw foods and most importantly from supplementation. We need the supplements as the most essential enzymes for avoiding or combating the catastrophic diseases are the enzymes we may no longer make as much of. Pancreatin is essential in the prevention and fight against all cancers and inflammations. Eating raw pancreas and meat is out of the question. So, we have to find the finest enzyme supplement and take it liberally. Today VitalZym from World Nutrition is the greatest systemic enzyme on the planet!

Progesterone and testosterone. With simple saliva tests we can determine just how low or off we are in our hormone balance and then safely supplement the loss with topical creams that are natural and without side effects. Testosterone has gotten a bad rap in the last 20 years as a cancer producer and aggression maker. The latest research shows the truth. Natural testosterone; protects the heart from disease, is the greatest antidepressant known, maintains sex drive, bone mass and muscle mass, lowers cholesterol and levels of body fat, protects the prostate and maintains mental drive! Life Flo makes the purest most utilizable proto - hormone supplement creams on the market today. The Progesta Care for women and the Andro - Edge are the products to look for. Oxygen. We first clean the blood with the enzymes. Then we make the blood rich with oxygen carrying red blood cells. We then increase the circulation by opening up clogged blood vessels with enzymes and then make miles and miles of new blood vessels through weight training. On top of that, to make sure we are always oxygen rich to fight off bugs despite air pollution and the rest we'll supplement with a rich oxygen source. Aerobic 0-7 and K 0-7 are the industry standards for oxygen supplementation.

Finally we'll shore up our frames and boost our energy producing structures with strength training. This will lessen the incidence of injury, maintain our bone and muscle mass, increase our circulation, lubricate the joints, feed our brain better and give us the ability to carry ourselves around for life without being a burden to ourselves and others.

Does all that sound reasonable? Well stay tuned. We're in this for Life!
