FAQ’s Regarding Enzymes

What are enzymes?

Enzymes are found in every cell of every living plant and animal, including humans. Enzymes are biocatalysts; which means that they either begin a reaction or cause a reaction to speed up. Without enzymes life would not exist.

How do enzymes work?

Enzymes work by virtue of their shape. An enzyme molecule can be compared, in shape at least, to many short strings of pearls (amino acids) strung together. This long string folds in on itself as certain sequences of amino acids (pearls) are more attracted to each other than to other sequences, thus giving the enzymes a specific shape. At one point on the surface of this string of pearls there exists something, which looks like a keyhole. This is called the “active site” on the enzyme. When matched with its specific coenzyme (a vitamin, mineral, or trace element) this “lock” has the exact inverse contour of the “key” which is contained in the molecule of the enzyme’s “substrate” (the molecule that the enzyme wants to transform into a different molecule). When the substrate appears, it inserts the “key” into the “lock.” The molecular structure of the substrate is transformed into a different molecular structure and both enzyme and the newly transformed molecule go on their merry ways.

What is a digestive enzyme?

A digestive enzyme breaks down the proteins, fats and carbohydrates in food during the digestive process allowing the body to better utilize the food you eat.

What is a proteolytic enzyme?

The proteolytic enzyme digests protein. Some examples of proteolytic enzymes are protease, serrapeptase, bromelain, and papain.

What is a lipase enzyme?

Lipase enzymes digest fat.

What is an amylase enzyme?

Amylase enzymes digest carbohydrates.

What is systemic enzyme therapy?

Systemic enzyme therapy is utilizing enzyme supplementation to increase the enzymes throughout your body to assist in restoring the body to health.

Are enzymes considered “anti-inflammatory drugs”?

Proteolytic Enzymes are considered anti-inflammatory agents.

How long does it take before you notice a change from taking enzymes?

It really depends on the individual’s physiological make-up. Everyone is different. Testimonials from some of our customers reported positive effects ranging from 3 days to 2 weeks. Taking the right activation dosage is critical to the success of the product. Being consistent with your regimen is also paramount to helping you achieve the outcomes you have laid out for yourself.

Are there any side effects at all with your product?

We currently have no documented evidence of any adverse side effects based on the use of enzymes. You should not take this product or begin any exercise or supplementation program without the consent of your physician.

Are there any compatibility issues with other nutraceuticals?

No. In fact, since vitamins are coenzymes and minerals are cofactors to enzymes, enzymes are needed in the body for them to be able to have their full effect. In addition, the vitamins and minerals assist the enzymes. Thus, systemic enzyme use enhances the effect of other supplementation programs.

    Thanks for explaining.

    One of the things we love about natural products (we sell herbal tinctures, mainly), is the fact there are no side-effects, unlike with the chemical-based drugs.

    If only we could get the word out to even more people.

  2. Hi Gary,

    What a great explanation of what enzymes are. Having that metaphor of their being biocatalysts is really helpful for aiding in how we think about enzymes and how they contribute to our total health.
