Zymitol is a broad spectrum systemic enzyme formulation with important additions like, MSM, alpha lipoic acid, magnesium, and rutin.
It’s true that enzymes sustain life. Without them, we could not exist. They are catalysts for virtually every biological and chemical reaction in the body. Normal enzyme levels may help the body to activate its internal repair processes, contributing to a healthier, more productive lifestyle.
Is a systemic enzyme combination product like Zymitol a necessity?
One may question whether a dietary supplement is necessary to acquire proper nutrient intake, but if you consider the following, we are sure you will agree that supplementation of Zymitol may promote a higher quality of life.
As we approach our late twenties, our body’s production of enzymes slows, and by the time we reach our forties our body’s production of key antioxidants drastically reduces. The flavonoids and organic sulfur found in Zymitol are not even produced by our body.
The best external source for enzymes, antioxidants, flavonoids and organic sulfur is raw and living foods that are not processed, dried, cooked or preserved. Cooked food is virtually absent of enzymes and may reduce the presence of antioxidants, flavonoids and sulfurs. Cooking also changes the molecular structure of food, making it difficult for our body to properly digest and eliminate it. We know that complete digestion and proper elimination of what we ingest are critical in maintaining optimum health.
If you eat primarily cooked foods, your body may not be able to process that food efficiently. This would be one of the many reasons you may be a prime candidate for Zymitol.
Why are enzymes so important?
Enzymes sustain life. Without them, we could not exist. They are catalysts for virtually every biological and chemical reaction in the body.
Protease is a form of proteolytic enzymes which demonstrates the ability to breakdown protein. Its role is critical as incomplete protein digestion creates problems for the body including the development of allergies and the formation of toxic substances. Undigested proteins have been linked to many health concerns and foreign invaders in the intestinal tract. Some of these foreign invaders are parasites. Protease is largely responsible for keeping the small intestines free from parasites. A lack of protease increases the risk of intestinal infection including an overgrowth of the yeast Candida. Protease also delivers the specific nutrients necessary to promote healthy muscle tissue, and may promote vibrant immune system function.
As a rule, enzymes do not attack living cells. Enzymes are generally unable to pass through the cell wall when the cell is alive. However, as soon as a cell dies, its wall becomes permeable, so enzymes can easily enter the cell.
Serrapeptase is one of the many potent proteolytic enzymes available today that exhibits an unusually high fibrinolytic activity and is generally well-tolerated. Serrapeptase is a powerful inflammation normalizer in its own right, so naturally when it’s combined with the other impressive ingredients in Zymitol, you can expect results. This enzyme, like the other enzymes used in Zymitol, breaks down “non living” matter in the human body. This action may promote a reduction in levels of dead tissue, and may also promote normal mucous levels both in the sinus and lung. Serrapeptase is a super protein digesting enzyme which has many implications as to its high level of performance.
Bromelain is a powerful protein-digesting or “proteolytic” enzyme. It is extracted from the stem of pineapple. The Bromelain in Zymitol can help to promote a healthy lifestyle. Unlike most enzymes, Bromelain is active both in the acid environment of the stomach and the alkaline environment of the small intestine. Bromelain may guard against the formation of fibrin, and once in the blood, it may promote normal inflammation levels, maintain healthy blood flow, and may support the immune system. Bromelain appears to be essentially nontoxic, and it seldom causes side effects other than occasional mild gastrointestinal distress or allergic reactions.
Papain is a proteolytic enzyme derived from the papaya. It is capable of cleaving and splicing proteins and peptides into free form amino acids, which are necessary for many biochemical reactions in the body. Papain may also be useful in the elimination of parasites in the gastrointestinal tract by simply digesting them. Papain has acquired the reputation of a “biological scalpel” because it selectively digests dead tissue without affecting the surrounding live tissue. Papain comes to the rescue when the body requires a cleansing of the dead cellular material.
Lipase is an enzyme that is required by the body to break down dietary fats into an absorbable form. Fats are the most difficult component of the diet to digest and fatty foods are responsible for more indigestion than proteins or starches.
Although Lipase helps to breakdown fats, it doesn’t damage fat-soluble vitamins or the unsaturated fatty acids in GLA, DHA, and EPA.
Essential fatty acids are required to maintain cell energy and sustain life. Lipase converts dietary fats into essential fatty acids. As we age our body alters the production of key enzymes like lipase, leaving the door open for fatty acid imbalance. Fatty acid imbalance may lead to many common discomforts and ailments associated with aging. Supplementation of lipase, like the enzyme found in Zymitolmay bridge this enzyme gap, promoting a healthier more fulfilling lifestyle.
Lipase controls the amount of fat being synthesized, reducing fat stores and in sufficient quantities, it can help move stored fat to be burned as fuel. It will not only activate this burning of the stored body fat but may also effectively inhibit fat storage all together.
Amylase refers to a group of enzymes whose function is to hydrolyze (breakdown) sugar and starch (carbohydrates). If carbohydrates are not properly hydrolyzed, the potential for serious health concerns may develop. Amylase will act with Protease to stimulate immune system function. It also works with lipase to digest certain toxins.
We know that our body begins to produce considerably less amylase and fewer other enzymes as we grow older. Our body switches from continual enzyme production, to a mode which may lay in wait for food to enter the body to initiate certain enzyme production responses. If we supplement with Zymitol then some of the burden on the body to produce extra enzymes will be relieved.
Why does my body require minerals?
Magnesium is instrumental in the reaction of more than 300 enzymes. Magnesium is an essential mineral that is commonly deficient in the American diet. A deficiency of magnesium leads to a wide range of health concerns because of its critical role in many enzyme actions. Its presence is critical in over 300 enzyme reactions and estimates for other roles of magnesium in the human body include over 50 different bio-chemical reactions.
Magnesium assists in the absorption of calcium and potassium and works with calcium to support many different body functions. It has been found to contribute to bone formation and mineralization.
Magnesium citrate may be used to reduce cravings for sugar and sweet foods while combating acids, toxins, gases, and other impurities in the body. It promotes limber, elastic tissue, it is a natural laxative, and may protect against fatty deposits in arteries. Magnesium may also be used by people experiencing fatigue, migraines and stress.
Why do we need antioxidants?
Antioxidants provide your body a defense at the cellular level by stabilizing or deactivating free radicals before they attack cells.
Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a vitamin-like antioxidant, sometimes referred to as the “universal antioxidant,” and is readily absorbed by the body as a supplement. ALA is both fat and water soluble, which enables it to function in many different tissues providing you with protection against the oxidative damage of free radicals.
ALA may also promote healthy blood flow to nerves, which may promote normal transmission of nerve impulses. It is also capable of binding and helping to eliminate heavy metals, repairing damaged molecules and may also promote healthy liver function. ALA also has the unique ability to directly recycle, re-activate, and extend the lifespan of other antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E, Glutathione, and Coenzyme Q10, creating an antioxidant framework that is second to none. Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a component of several human enzyme systems, functioning to convert food into energy. This hard working nutrient breaks down food and impedes fat production by redirecting calories to be used as energy.
What is organic sulfur?
MSM supplies biologically active sulfur. Sulfur is a necessary building block for enzymes, proteins and connective tissues, helping them to perform their functions. MSM or methylsulfonylmethane is a natural form of organic sulfur and is the prime source of bio-available sulfur, which is lost from our food by processing, drying, cooking and preserving.
The body utilizes MSM for proper enzyme activity and hormone balance support, along with the promotion of proper immune system functions. MSM is a component of over 150 compounds, including proteins, especially those found in the hair, skin, muscles, and connective tissue of the joints. It promotes and maintains a healthy stomach and digestive tract, cell vitality, and absorption. MSM also promotes healthy joints and helps maintain healthy circulation.
Additionally, MSM promotes and maintains the ability of the body to eliminate wastes and toxins at the cellular level, where good health begins.
What are flavonoids?
Flavonoids are in a class of water soluble plant pigments that may deliver potent antioxidant support, and may promote normal, healthy cellular tissue throughout the body.
Rutin is a water soluble plant pigment that may deliver potent antioxidant support and may promote normal, healthy, cellular tissue throughout the body. Flavonoids like rutin are thought to enhance the absorption of Vitamin C, and possibly to prolong the effectiveness of it as well. Rutin may help to maintain normal, healthy digestive functions and may promote healthy circulation. It has the unique ability to improve capillaries and veins and it supports the regeneration capacity of human body tissues.
Rutin is a powerful antioxidant that fights free radicals and seems to have a protective effect against syndromes that lower the body’s oxygen supply. Like all of the other ingredients in Zymitol, rutin promotes healthy aging.
