Our immune systems regularly encounter environmental invaders such as viruses, bacteria, fungus, chemical pollution, and environmental toxicity. Maintaining an adequate immune system to elicit a healthy immune response is essential. Enzyme Defense™ contains a high potency proteolytic enzyme blend formulated with vitamin 03, L-lysin and trace minerals to support and promote healthy immune function.*
Enzymes are responsible for catalyzing and regulating biochemical reactions that occur within the human body. Specifically, enzymes are highly involved in regulating the body's digestive and metabolic processes, thus making them essential for cellular function and overall well ness. In particular, proteolytic enzymes, also known as proteases, are responsible for supporting digestion and metabolism by breaking down protein. Supplemental proteolytic enzymes have an established history of use for supporting immunity and promoting general wellbeing.
Supplemental proteases administered orally on an empty stomach have been shown to be absorbed and carried into the bloodstream. While in the bloodstream, proteases bind to alpha-11 macroglobulin (A2M). As a complex, the bound protease circulates through the body to become part of the immune system. The protease functions therapeutically by promoting cellular repair and recovery in addition to encouraging a healthy inflammatory response.*
Undesirable microorganisms including viruses, yeast, fungi, bacteria, and parasites contain a protein matrix or are often protected by protein. Present in the blood stream, the proteindigesting enzyme is capable of digesting the microorganism's protein coating therefore exposing the organism to degradation.* Once digested, the body eliminates remains of the organism through its normal processes of purification.
