Douglas Labs Vegetarian Protezyme Forte is a synergistic blend of several proteolytic enzymes designed to support the body’s normal inflammatory and healing processes. The enzymes present in Vegetarian Protezyme Forte are derived from non-animal sources, making this product suitable for vegetarians and those individuals wishing to avoid animal-derived enzymes.
Proteolytic enzymes are naturally present in many unprocessed foods, and studies show that many of these enzymes are absorbed in the intestine to varying degrees, and in fact 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 normal wound healing processes. They help remove cellular debris and facilitate healthy inflammatory processes. Vegetarian Protezyme Forte contains several proteolytic enzymes all specifically formulated to help support the body’s normal inflammatory process and help expedite normal wound healing.
Protease 4.5 and 6.0: A mixture of acid, neutral and alkaline proteases that demonstrate both exo-peptidase and endo-peptidase activity. These proteases have an effective pH range from 2.5 to 7.0. Bromelain: Obtained from the lower stems of the pineapple plant, it is a combination of proteolytic enzymes which differ in their specificity and optimal environments. Bromleain has an effective pH range of 4.0 – 9.0 and has been extensively studied for its ability to support normal inflammatory processes.* Papain: Derived from the papaya fruit, papain contains a wide variety of proteolytic enzymes and can effectively hydrolyze most soluble protein, yielding peptides and amino acids. Papain has an effective pH range of 3.0 to 10.5.
Serrazimes: A proprietary proteolytic enzyme system derived from Aspergillus oryzae and Aspergillus melleus and designed as an alternative to serrapeptidase. Aspergillus melleus has been shown to support normal inflammatory processes similar to serrapeptidase but with fewer reported side effects. Serrazimes may also help support immune function and promote a healthy response to stress.
Rutin: Rutin is a bioflavonoid that is naturally found in many plants and dietary sources including black tea and apples. Bioflaovnoids act as potent antioxidant in the body, neutralizing the potentially harmful proliferation of free radicals. This in turn can help minimize the cellular damage that can affect normal inflammatory processes.
Vegetarian Protezyme Forte may be a useful dietary supplement for individuals wishing to supplement their diets with proteolytic enzymes to support the body’s normal inflammatory processes.
