New Studies on Enzymedica’s Unique Thera-blend Process

Recent findings by a researcher at the National University of Ireland, Galway, have reconfirmed the efficacy and function of Enzymedica’s trademarked Thera-blend™ process.

Figure 1 illustrates how a blend of one type of enzyme (such as protease) enhance the range of activity for a Thera-Blend™. Notice that there are three proteases shown. All have a slightly different optimal pH at normal body temperature. By combining the three we are able to achieve greater activity over a broader pH range (this is not an exact graph it is simply meant to illustrate the benefit of Thera-Blend™).

Thera-blend is Enzymedica’s exclusive blending process used for the protease, lipase, amylase, and cellulase enzymes in the company’s formulas. The goal of the process is to blend several strains of each enzyme to achieve greater activity over a broader pH range. The end result of the Thera-blend method is increased potency, as enzymes are enabled to break down more bonds throughout the entire digestive system. The variety of strains also makes the formulas more effective systemically.

The positive correlation was validated by Dr. Maria Tuohy, while studying an unrelated enzymatic assay obtained from Enzymedica’s GlutenEase™ formula for its starch-modifying and proteolytic activities. [Its ability to break down starches and proteins.]

Scott Sensenbrenner, CEO of Enzymedica shares, “These recent findings corroborate previous tests by the manufacturer and Enzymedica is excited to share the news. As a science-based company we will continue to pursue research to further substantiate our product claims.”

In Figure 2 Notice how a multiple blend of one enzyme has the ability to break more protein, carbohydrates or fat bonds than a single enzyme.

The Miracle Enzyme

Proteolytic enzymes have been used for the management of many differing issues, being found effective for fighting protein pathogens (bacteria, virus’, fungi, toxins), treating injuries, speeding circulation and so on. Recently, one protease in particular named serratiopeptidase has gained quite a bit of attention. Although its application has been around for quite some time in European countries, like Germany, interest has only recently increased in the United States.

The Miracle EnzymeEnzymedica's enzyme rings of energy = Thera-Blend

Serratiopeptidase’ profound achievements are now being recognized and can be found in some medications. It has even been called “the miracle enzyme”. This is such a multifunctional enzyme and it works on many different levels, addressing varying conditions. Serratiopeptidase was originally discovered in the intestinal tracts of Japanese silkworms, who used the enzyme to dissolve their cocoon.

Inflammation and Pain

One of the main areas serratiopeptidase assists with is pain and inflammation. Its use has proven time and time again to be effective in the treatment of conditions ranging from carpal tunnel, arthritis, post-operative swelling and so on.

How does it bring down this inflammation and pain? Well, it helps in this regard by speeding the recovery time of the inflamed tissues by thinning the fluids and increasing drainage, which is formed by inflammation and injury. It also helps to block pain by inhibiting the release of certain amines from the inflamed tissues.

Cardiovascular Health

Yet another remarkable quality this enzyme has is its ability to support cardiovascular health. It does so by dissolving fibrin, a protein that can excessively form in the blood, resulting in blood clotting, blood stickiness, plaque, high blood pressure and the like. Serratiopeptidase has the ability to directly dissolve fibrin, eliminating these situations from occurring. We can see that this enzyme covers a multitude of areas.

SerraGold

Enzymedica SerraGold Enzymedica SerraGold is a proteolytic enzyme blend that contains Serratiopeptidase, or Serrapeptase, as it is sometimes called. It represents one of the most potent enzyme formulas available in the category. SerraGold has been formulated using the potent Serratiopeptidase enzyme and Enzymedica’s unique Protease Thera-blend and is intended for those seeking the highest potency Serratiopeptidase available.

Neutralizing Harmful Free Radicals

Free radicals are produced naturally as the normal by-products of digestion and respiration, but can also be the result of environmental exposure to pollutants, cigarette smoke, ultraviolet light and X-rays. Although a normal part of life, free radical damage has been associated with aging and numerous disease states.

How Enzymedica's Defenze Can Help

How Defenze Can Help

Defenze contains a combination of potent antioxidant enzymes including superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase, and our exclusive protease Thera-blend™.

· SOD aids in neutralizing free radicals and is part of the ‘oxidative burst’ that immune cells release to destroy bacteria and viruses that have gained access to the cells of the body.

· Catalase is an extremely efficient enzyme that removes toxins from the body. Its primary function is to turn hydrogen peroxide (a free radical compound) into water and oxygen. One molecule of catalase can dismantle millions of hydrogen peroxide molecules each second.

· Protease has a long history of therapeutic use as a detoxifier that supports immune function.

Neutralizing Harmful Free Radicals With Enzymedica's Products

Defenze also contains glutathione and alpha-lipoic acid (ALA). Glutathione is an antioxidant molecule formed in the liver. Its main functions are to assist in DNA repair, neutralize toxins, protect cells from free radicals, and boost immune function. Deficiencies of this nutrient are associated with aging and various disease states. ALA is an antioxidant that works inside and outside cells. It also regenerates other antioxidants like vitamin C and E.

Overall Immune Support

In addition to neutralizing free radicals, Defenze also assists the body in overall immune support. Defenze is the most potent antioxidant formula available on the market.

Enhancing Vitamin and Mineral Absorption

Many of the health issues faced by people today can be attributed to nutritional deficiencies. Malabsorption is a common problem where nutrients from food or supplements are not properly utilized within the gastrointestinal tract. A lack of nutrients may lead to serious health conditions, which is why it is important to have proper absorption of vitamins, minerals, herbs and nutrients.

Optimize What?

Enzymedica has been a leader in enhancing digestion, absorbability, and thus the nutritional status of the consumer through the use of plant based enzymes. Enzymedica now goes a step further in enhancing the absorption of vitamins, minerals, herbs as well as nutrients with Vitamin & Mineral Optimize.

Bioperine

The active ingredient in Vitamin & Mineral Optimize is Bioperine, a standardized extract from the fruit of Piper nigrum L (black pepper). Bioperine is fat soluble so it is able to penetrate intestinal cell membranes, leading to better absorption. It is regarded as a thermonutrient that can stimulate thermogenesis. This means that it can increase energy available for nutrient absorption by increasing the activity of enzymes, and may also increase blood flow to the gastrointestinal tract and increase the levels of enzymes involved in transport of nutrients into intestinal cells.

Enhancing Supplements

The potency in Vitamin & Mineral Optimize is specifically designed for supplemental vitamin, mineral and herb absorption when taken on an empty stomach. Vitamin & Mineral Optimize can help you get the most out of the nutrients you consume. To learn more about absorption of supplements, read volume 3, issue 2 of the Enzymedica newsletter.
