Zymex II Description

Suggested use: 6-12/day

Zymex II is a good choice to begin to deal with a parasitic issue in the gut. It contains digestive enzymes to support healthy gastrointestinal function and encourages a healthy intestinal environment to maintain proper gastrointestinal flora.

What are enzymes?

Zymex II contains important digestive enzymes to support healthy gastrointestinal function. The word “enzyme” comes from Greek words that mean in yeast. Enzymes were given this name when they were discovered while scientists were studying the process of fermentation. Enzymes help sustain life. Almost every chemical reaction that takes place in all living cells of plants, animals, humans, and even of some bacteria begins by the stimulation of some specific enzyme. Enzymes are catalysts, meaning they speed up chemical reactions without changing themselves. They are the catalysts that set off multitudes of specific activities and processes throughout the human body. While hundreds of different enzymes have been discovered to date, each enzyme performs a singular function. Although the enzymes are each responsible for initiating a process that only that particular enzyme can accomplish, they are related to one another enough to allow classification into one of six categories.The proteolytic enzymes, for example, work to break down proteins in the digestive tract like in Zymex II.

How Zymex II keeps you healthy:

  • Promotes healthy digestive function and encourages a healthy intestinal environment to maintain proper gastrointestinal flora. As food is taken into the mouth and begins its journey down the alimentary tract, it is met by a series of different enzymes. Each is responsible to initiate a different chemical reaction in the digestive process and each is dependent upon a certain acid or alkaline environment in order to perform its respective function. The human body requires adequate amounts of these digestive enzymes in order to break down ingested nutrients into substances suitable for absorption. The proteolytic enzymes work in the digestive system and at the cellular level to help digest proteins. Zymex II contains the proteolytic enzymes papain and bromelain, which are historically isolated from papaya and pineapple, respectively. In addition to proteolytic enzymes, Zymex II also contains amylase, another hydrolytic enzyme that triggers the process of breaking down starch into smaller carbohydrate molecules. Zymex II also contains lipase, an enzyme produced by organs of the digestive system to stimulate the breakdown of lipids.

  • Provides alkaline-based digestive support for the acid-sensitive individual All enzymes, whether of the proteolytic variety or not, are extremely sensitive to acid and alkaline surroundings. Zymex II contains bromelain and papain. Both enjoy an optimum pH value of between 6 and 7.5 and remain stable in temperatures of up to 60° and 80° C. These characteristics offer the acid-sensitive individual digestive support without adding acid to the body. Zymex11 does not contain pancreatin or betaine hydrochloride and developed for the acid-sensitive individual.

  • Supports the body's natural inflammatory response after strenuous exercise when taken between meals. It is clinically useful in addressing acute musculoskeletal tissue trauma to modulate the inflammatory response.
