Enzymes are complex proteins that catalyze metabolic reactions throughout the body, and sufficient levels are required for optimizing many of the body’s functions. Although the body produces its own supply of enzymes, the amount produced can vary from person to person and is affected by age, diet, biochemistry, and stress. Enzymes fall into three broad categories: metabolic enzymes, manufactured by cells to carry out various functions; digestive enzymes, primarily manufactured by the pancreas to digest foods and absorb nutrients and food enzymes; and exogenous (from outside the body) enzymes from plants and animals, also necessary for aiding and accelerating digestion.
A comprehensive multi-enzyme formula, Vascuzyme helps support normal blood circulation, vessel function, a normal inflammatory response, and promotes recovery from exercise and physical stress. By supporting the breakdown of unwanted proteins generated during injury and tissue damage for a normal recovery process, Vascuzyme has applications for a broad range of health needs. Vascuzyme’s enzyme blend includes protease, amylase, papain, trypsin, lipase, chymotrypsin, bromelain, along with quercetin and rutin, two well-known flavonoids. It is formulated with a unique delayed-release delivery system to ensure the enzymes are released intact in the small intestines.
