Vitälzӯm is a systemic enzyme supplement. What are enzymes?

Enzymes are proteins that are the biocatalysts for thousands of chemical reactions associated with all of our bodies’ most important functions. Breathing, growth, reproduction, digestion and many other metabolic functions rely on enzymes. Simply put, without enzymes, we can not live.

How do enzymes benefit me?

Enzymes serve six major functions. They are a natural anti-inflammatory, eat scar tissue and fibrosis, help keep our immune system in a steady state, cleanse our blood, fight viruses and regulate our metabolism.

What does the word “systemic” mean as it relates to systemic enzymes?

The word “systemic” in “systemic enzymes” refers to an enzyme’s utilization throughout the entire body. In other words, systemic enzymes don’t merely focus on one area of the body like digestive enzymes do, for example. Systemic enzymes work throughout your entire body to provide a variety of different benefits.

Why are systemic enzyme supplements important?

Generally speaking, the body has a sufficient supply of enzymes through age 25. But once a person reaches their mid-twenties, enzyme production beings to diminish, which can reduce the efficiency of normal body functions. Taking a systemic enzyme supplement can help restore your enzyme levels and promote natural healing.

What conditions should I take Vitälzӯm for?

Vitälzӯm may help defend against pain, inflammation, fibromyalgia, fibroids, scar tissue, arthritis, hypertension and more.*

What is the key to Systemic Enzyme effectiveness?

The amount of enzyme activity level in the bloodstream after the enzyme has been absorbed into the small intestine determines its effectiveness.

Why is an enteric coating so important?

Enzymes can lose activity when exposed to stomach acids. Studies have shown that unprotected enzymes can lose up to 100 percent of their effectiveness in less than 30 minutes when exposed to conditions like those found in the stomach.

Enteric coating is the only method available to ensure that none of the enzymes in the capsule are destroyed. The enteric coating allows the enzyme capsule to survive its pass through the stomach and reach the small intestine where nearly 100 percent of the enzymes are then released into the small intestine for more complete absorption into the bloodstream and dispersed throughout the body. Enteric coating is the best and most effective oral delivery system for systemic enzymes.

What is the benefit of a liquid formulation?

Enzymes may begin to degrade when exposed to high temperatures like those utilized in manufacturing tablet-based enzymes. Vitälzӯm’s liquid base is manufactured under strictly-controlled temperatures, resulting in no activity loss caused by heat.

Liquid enzyme formulations also provide for more ingredient consistency in every capsule and a shelf life of at least three years, which is double the industry average.

Vitälzӯm is the only systemic enzyme supplement on the market that boasts a delivery system which combines both an enteric coating and a liquid formulation.

What is the proprietary Vitälzӯm blend comprised of?

Vitälzӯm is a unique blend of enzymes, flavonoids and antioxidants that includes Serrapeptase, Bromelain, Papain, Rutin, Amylase, Protease, Lipase and Amla.

What is Serrapeptase?

Vitälzӯm’s key ingredient is Serrapeptase, which is a proteolytic enzyme that is able to digest dead tissue, blood clots and cysts. Clinical studies show that Serrapeptase induces fibrinolytic, anti-inflammatory and anti-edemic activity in a number of tissues, and its anti-inflammatory effects are superior to other proteolytic enzymes.

Where do Vitälzӯm enzymes come from?

The enzymes in Vitälzӯm are taken from two sources – fruit and enzymes that are cultured in a lab setting in a protein medium. The enzymes are then extracted from the protein medium in a process that assures they remain pure.

What is the suggested Vitälzӯm dose?

For general maintenance, the recommended Vitälzӯm dose is three capsules a day. However, every individual is different and a higher or lower dosage may be appropriate depending on the conditions you are dealing with. Your dosage can be taken at one time or in several dosages throughout the day.

Can I take too much Vitälzӯm?

Enzymes are non-toxic so you can not overdose on them.

When is the best time to take Vitälzӯm?

To achieve maximum absorption, it is always best to take systemic enzymes on an empty stomach. You should take Vitälzӯm at least 30 minutes before a meal or 60 minutes after a meal.

How long will I have to take Vitälzӯm before I see results?

Everyone is different, and the timeframe usually depends on an individual’s physiological makeup. Users have reported positive effects in as little as three days and usually no longer than four weeks.

Are there any side effects with Vitälzӯm?

With the exception of minor detoxification reactions experienced by a very few  users (usually mild to moderate flu-like symptoms), there is no documented evidence of any adverse side effects resulting from the use of Vitälzӯm.

Are there any compatibility issues with any prescribed drugs?

Patients using anticoagulants, or blood thinners, should not use Vitälzӯm without the consent of their physician.

Are the components of Vitälzӯm derived from non-GMO sources?

Yes, all ingredients in Vitälzӯm are derived from non-GMO (non-genetically modified organism) sources. Vitälzӯm is also all-natural and contains no titanium dioxide or talc.

Is Vitälzӯm a vegetarian product?

Yes. Animal products are not used in the manufacture of Vitälzӯm. The enzymes are derived from plants and lab-grown cultures. Other enzymes on the market use trypsin and chymotrypsin in their formulations, which are porcine and bovine derived.

How should Vitälzӯm be stored?

You should store Vitälzӯm in a cool, dry place, with the bottle’s  lid tightly closed. Exposure to heat over 150 degrees for an extended period of time can destroy enzymes.

Does using a systemic enzyme supplement eliminate the need to take aspirin?

Aspirin is effective in keeping your platelets from aggregating, which helps reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke. But long-term use of aspirin can be toxic to the liver and kidneys. Every year, close to 20,000 Americans die and more than 100,000 are hospitalized due to complications from taking aspirin and other Non Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) such as Ibuprofen, Celebrex and Viox. Enzymes, meanwhile, have no toxic effects and are 100 percent safe.
