Douglas Laboratories Proteozyme Forte is a dietary supplement with a wide range of nutritional factors, including vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and botanicals that are involved in the normal wound healing process.
Proteozyme Forte™ contains several proteolytic enzymes, i.e. proteases, including bromelain, papain, pepsin, trypsin, and chymotrypsin as well as other nutrients all specifically formulated to help expedite the healing process that follows injury to tissue structure and function.
Proteolytic enzymes are naturally present in many unprocessed foods, and studies show that most of these enzymes are absorbed in the intestine to varying degrees, and remain active after entering the circulatory system. Absorption tends to be better in the absence of protein-containing foods.
Fresh, uncooked foods, especially fruits and vegetables are good sources of biologically active enzymes. However, processing, storage and cooking destroy the enzymes and some scientists believe that the modern way of eating is causing a general enzyme deficiency.
These proteases are continuously active in reshaping the tissues throughout the body as they participate in the normal wound healing process. They help remove cellular debris, blood clots and scar tissue, thus facilitating the re-growth of healthy tissue. Proteolytic enzymes are also involved in the physiological removal of immune complexes.
In addition to proteolytic enzymes, Proteozyme Forte™ also provides several nutritional factors that have important biochemical roles in normal wound healing. Vitamin C and bioflavonoids, such as rutin and hesperidin, have functions in the formation and maintenance of healthy connective tissue. Zinc is important for normal immune function, and calcium, magnesium, and manganese, as well as glucosamine sulfate are supportive in bone and cartilage repair. Bovine cartilage is added as a source of glucosamine sugars and proteoglycans for connective tissue formation.
Bromelain, a protease from the pineapple plant, reduces the production of proinflammatory prostaglandins by modulating the arachidonate cascade. Its ability to support normal inflammatory processes may reduce the discomfort associated with injuries.
Proteozyme Forte™ may be a useful nutritional adjunct for individuals who wish to supplement their diets with proteolytic enzymes and other factors that provide nutritional support after injuries.
