First introduced in Germany
as a pharmaceutical over 40 years ago, Wobenzym N has been updated but still
features the time-tested, synergistic combination of plant-based enzymes,
pancreatic enzymes and antioxidants. These powerful yet delicate enzymes are
protected by a vegetable-based enteric coating which ensures optimal absorption

Enzymes are fascinating
and essential biological catalysts that are involved in almost every single
process in our bodies. In fact, thousands of enzymes drive trillions of chemical
reactions every second. They are involved in everything from breathing and
blood flow to the transmission of neural impulses to immune system maintenance.
are Enzymes, and how are they organized?
Enzymes are delicate proteins,
catalysts responsible not only for breaking down food, but for a host of other
day-to-day processes, including transforming minerals into alkaline detoxifiers
that neutralize the acid of our highly acidic diet. Enzymes are critically
necessary for achieving our balanced pH, as well as our balanced diet.
Enzymes allow certain
metabolic processes to take place that otherwise would not occur without their
presence. Enzymes assist in converting one substance (called a substrate)
into another substance. During this process, the enzyme itself is not consumed
and is available to perform its function over and over.
The German physician William
Friedrich was the first to use the term "enzyme". Since 1897, the
term is generally used within the scientific realm to refer to all biocatalysts.
Structurally, all enzymes
consist of chains of amino acids. There are 20 amino acids from which all
protein are composed. It is the specific sequence and tridimensional nature
of amino acids that determine the spatial structure and function of an enzyme.
Many enzymes also contain
components that are not amino acids, but are critical to their proper function.
These components are referred to as co-factors. An example of a co-factor
could be a specific vitamin or mineral that helps the enzyme catalyze a particular
may only exert their effect in a certain range of pH values and temperatures.
They are very sensitive, and are typically destroyed to a large extent by
the gastric acid within our stomachs. Active enzymes play a crucial role in
supporting all immune system functions.
How do Enzymes Work?
Science has been able
to identify approximately 3,000 enzymes in the body, each with a very specific
role. Most enzymes are used for the body's normal metabolic processes (digestion,
breathing). Certain enzymes control the production of important hormones in
the body. Enzymes also destroy environmental toxins and free radicals that
are formed both from endogenous and exogenous sources.
reaction: the lock-and-key principle
Enzymes have an active center. Under a powerful microscope, this is the area
that often looks like a concavity or a depression. Certain materials fit into
this depression causing the enzyme to convert and change. In the case of proteolytic
enzymes (which break down protein), protein molecules attach to the active
center of the enzyme, and then the amino acids divide in specific locations.
Each enzyme is substrate specific and catalyzes a small number of reactions.
These reactions often take place in series often referred to as a cascade.
Enzyme cascades allow multiple controls over a large number of processes.
Through a chemical reaction,
enzymes ensure that a specific balance ultimately results between the substrate
and the final product.
" consists of ingesting combinations of
different enzymes, which modulate the natural reactions in the body. Specifically,
these enzymes can help support healthy blood flow and the immune system*.
Enzymes are like the police officers of our bodies that regulate its biochemical
Effectiveness - What does "systemic enzyme support" mean?
The word “systemic”
means body wide. Systemic enzymes are those that operate not just for digestion
but throughout your body in every system and organ.
In order to ensure that
the systemic effect of the enzyme therapy unfolds, active enzyme molecules
must be available in the small intestine for absorption. In order to penetrate
through the acidic environment of the stomach, enzyme tablets must be enteric-coated
in order to reach their appropriate target.
Specific enzymes used
in a systemic enzyme formulation have effects on different functions in the
body. In order to have a maximal effect, a combination of plant-based enzymes
(bromelain and papain), with animal-based enzymes including trypsin and chymotrypsin
body wide proteolytic (protein eating) enzymes have the following actions:
- Natural Anti-Inflammatory
They are the first line
of defense against inflammation. Inflammation is a reaction by the immune
system to an irritation. Let’s say you have an injured right knee.
The immune system sensing the irritation the knee is undergoing creates
a protein chain called a Circulating Immune Complex (CIC for short), tagged
specifically for that right knee. (The Nobel Prize in biology was won in
1999 by a scientist who discovered this tagging mechanism). This CIC floats
down to the right knee and causes pain, redness and swelling are the classic
earmarks for inflammation. This at first is a beneficial reaction; it warns
us that a part of ourselves is hurt and needs attention. But, inflammation
is self-perpetuating, itself creating an irritation that the body makes
CIC’s to in response!
Celebrex, Vioxx and the rest of the Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs
all work by keeping the body from making all CIC's. This ignores the fact
that some CIC’s are vital to life, like those that maintain the lining
of the intestine and those that keep the kidneys functioning! Not to mention
the fact that the NSAID’s, along with acetaminophen, are highly toxic
to the liver. Every year 20,000 Americans die from these over the counter
drugs and another 100,000 will wind up in the hospital with liver damage,
kidney damage or bleeding intestines from the side effects of these drugs.
Systemic enzymes on
the other hand are perfectly safe and free of dangerous side effects. They
have no LD-50, or toxic dose. Best of all systemic enzymes can tell the
difference between the good CIC’s and the bad ones because hydrolytic
enzymes are lock and key mechanisms and their "teeth" will only
fit over the bad CIC’s. So instead of preventing the creation of all
CIC’s, systemic enzymes just “eat” the bad ones and in
so doing lower inflammation everywhere. With that, pain is lowered also.
- Anti Fibrosis
Enzymes eat scar tissue
and fibrosis. Fibrosis is scar tissue and most doctors learn in anatomy
that it is fibrosis that eventually kills us all. Let me explain. As we
age, which starts at 27, we have a diminishing of the bodies’ output
of enzymes. This is because we make a finite amount of enzymes in a lifetime
and we use up a good deal of them by the time we are 27. At that point the
body knows that if it keeps up that rate of consumption we’ll run
out of enzymes and be dead by the time we reach our 40’s. (Cystic
Fibrosis patients who have virtually no enzyme production to speak of, even
as children usually don’t make it past their 20’s before they
die of the restriction and shrinkage in the lungs from the formation of
fibrosis or scar tissue).
So our body in it's
wisdom begins to dole out our enzymes with an eyedropper instead of with
a tablespoon; as a result the repair mechanism of the body goes out of balance
and has nothing to reduce the over abundance of fibrin it deposits in nearly
every thing from simple cuts, to the inside of our internal organs and blood
vessels. This is when most women begin to develop things like fibrocystic
breast disease, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, and we all grow arterial
sclerotic (meaning scar tissue) plaque, and have fibrin beginning to spider
web its way inside of our internal organs reducing their size and function
over time. This is why as we age our wounds heal with thicker, less pliable,
weaker and very visible scars.
If we replace the lost
enzymes we can control and reduce the amount of scar tissue and fibrosis
our bodies have. As physicians in the US are now discovering, even old scar
tissue can be “eaten away” from surgical wounds, pulmonary fibrosis,
kidney fibrosis and even keloids years after their formation. Medical doctors
in Europe and Asia have known this and have used orally administered enzymes
for these situations for over 40 years!
- Blood Cleansing
The blood is not only
the river of life, it is also the river through which the cells and organs
dispose of their garbage and dead material. Enzymes improve circulation
by eating the excess fibrin that causes blood to sometimes get as thick
as catsup or yogurt, creating the perfect environment for the formation
of clots. All of this material is supposed to be cleared by the liver on
its "first pass", or the first time it goes through but given
the sluggish and near toxic or toxic states of everyone's liver these days
that seldom happens. So the sludge remains in the blood waiting for the
liver to have enough free working space and enough enzymes to clean the
trash out of the blood. This can take days, and in some cases, weeks!
When systemic enzymes
are taken, they stand ready in the blood and take the strain off of the liver
- Cleaning excess fibrin
from the blood and reducing the stickiness of blood cells. These two actions
minimize the leading causes of stroke and heart attack causing blood clots.
- Breaking dead material
down small enough that it can immediately pass into the bowel.
- Cleanse the FC receptors
on the white blood cells improving their function and availability to fight
- And here we come to the
only warning we have to give concerning the use of systemic enzymes - don't
use the product if you are a hemophiliac or are on prescription blood thinners
like Coumadin, Heparin and Plavix, without direct medical supervision. The
enzymes cause the drugs to work better so there is the possibility of thinning
the blood too much.
- Immune System
Enzymes are adaptogenic
seeking to restore a steady state to the body. When the immune system is
running low we become susceptible to infectious disease, when it’s
cranked up too high then the system creates antibodies that attack it's
own tissues as are seen in the auto immune diseases of MS, Rheumatoid Arthritis,
and Lupus. Here the enzymes will tone down immune function and eat away
at the antibodies the immune system is making to attack its bodies own tissue.
- Virus Fighting
Viruses harm us by replicating
in our bodies. To do this a virus must bond itself to the DNA in our cells
through the medium of its exterior protein cell wall. Anything that disrupts
that cell wall inhibits the ability of viral replication by rendering individual
viruses inert. Systemic enzymes can tell the difference between the proteins
that are supposed to be in your body and those that are foreign or not supposed
to be there, (again the enzyme lock and key mechanism).
One note: many in the
States have learned in school that enzymes are too big a protein to be absorbed
through the gut. The pioneering research done in the US by Dr. Max Wolf
(MD & PhD x7) at Columbia University in the 40’s through the 70’s
has not made it to the awareness of most doctors. There are currently over
200 peer reviewed research articles dealing with the absorption, utilization
and therapeutic action of orally administered systemic enzymes. A search
through Pub Med using the key words: serrapeptase, papain, bromelain, trypsin,
chymo trypsin, nattokinase and systemic enzyme will yield some of the extensive
work. Systemic enzymes now have a 4 decade plus history of widespread medical
use in central Europe and Japan.
- Where is systemic
enzyme support used?
There are many areas
of application for systemic enzyme support. Enzymes support the body in
a number of areas, including healthy blood flow, immune support, joint health
as well as others.
- Enzymes in tablet
In order for the enzymes
not to be destroyed, the tablet must be coated to allow the enzymes to reach
the small intestine where they can be absorbed.
It is also very important
to take enzyme tablets on an empty stomach, at least 30 minutes to 1 hour
before meals. The enzymes have a better chance of absorption through the
intestinal walls and ultimately into the blood.
should take enzymes only under medical supervision?
