Description Usage Supplement Facts It's a simple fact that systemic enzymes are important to our health. Systemic enzymes are absolutely essential to maintaining a healthy body and an active lifestyle. Your body uses systemic enzymes to rebalance the inflammatory response and fine-tune repair processes to help you recover from injury and disease. Fortunately, you can replenish your supply with the naturally occurring enzymes in Wobenzym. Wobenzym is recommended for: Healthy Joints Improved Mobility Robust circulation Healthy Aging Normalized Inflammation Sports Injury Recuperation While other products - like non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) - offer quick but temporary solutions, Wobenzym empowers your body to heal itself. Wobenzym is the most thoroughly researched systemic enzyme supplement available to support your good health. When you are young, the body produces most of the enzymes it needs to maintain healthy joints, a strong immune system, robust circulation and overall good health. However, in some cases, enzymes can be "used up" faster than the body can manufacture them. Especially with age, the body loses its ability to produce enough enzymes to keep up with its own demand. This can leave a person vulnerable to a wide range of health problems, which is why Wobenzym with bromelain is so important. What are "systemic" enzymes? You may be familiar with digestive enzymes that work in the stomach and intestine to enhance digestion. Wobenzym is different! Each Wobenzym tablet contains bromelain and is enterically coated so that the enzymes pass through the digestive tract and enter the bloodstream in their natural form. As the circulatory system delivers these highly purified enzymes throughout the body along with nutrients and oxygen, Wobenzym exerts its benefits systemically to all your tissues and organs. How does Wobenzym® work? The enzymes in Wobenzym include bromelain, which works to break down certain proteins in the body. It may seem strange to break down proteins, since they are essential to life. However, some proteins can be quite harmful to joints, organs and tissue. Wobenzym works like a biological "vacuum cleaner" to rid the blood of these harmful proteins. Is Wobenzym® safe?
