What are systemic enzymes?
Systemic enzymes (particularly those that digest protein, known as “proteolytic enzymes”) have the amazing ability to target proteins in the blood stream, break them down, and convert them into useable amino acids. This process helps reduce inflammation and prevent allergic reactions to organic proteins in the body. Organic proteins may include: dust mite feces, pollen, dander, mold, and/or partially digested food that leaks through the gut wall (also known as “leaky gut syndrome”).
If taken on an empty stomach:
Proteolytic enzymes will work systemically breaking down proteins located throughout the blood stream. This includes protein based allergens.
If taken with food:
Proteolytic enzymes will digest the protein found in the food first. Any leftover proteolytic enzymes will be used systemically in the blood stream.
It is important to remember when supplementing your pet with Pet-Enzymes Plus® to wait at least one hour before or after feeding in order for the enzymes to work systemically.
Can I use Total-Zymes® as a systemic enzyme?
Question: Can I use Total-Zymes® digestive enzymes as a systemic enzyme by giving it to my pet on an empty stomach?
Answer: Total-Zymes® is an excellent tool to digest any pet food, however it does not contain all of the ingredients necessary to benefit pets with severe allergies, joint pain, or muscle pain. Pet-Enzymes Plus® is formulated with a large amount of high performance proteolytic enzymes (or, protein-digesting enzymes) to maximize the anti-inflammatory and healing properties for your pet.
Systemic enzymes for joint support
When not digested completely, protein molecules wander through the bloodstream in an effort to find a lodging place. Most commonly, proteins will gather in the shoulders, elbows, hind feet and paws, creating pressure and inflammation. This inflammation in turn causes joint aches, pain, and in some extreme cases gout or arthritis.
Systemic enzymes have the amazing ability to target proteins in the blood stream, break them down, and convert them into useable amino acids. This process can help reduce inflammation, joint aches and muscle soreness.
Systemic enzymes for allergy support
Organic proteins (also known as allergens) include things such as: dust mite feces, pollen, dander, and mold. When these foreign molecules enter the body unannounced, the body’s immune system releases antibodies into the blood stream to rid the body’s system of the allergen, thus resulting in an allergic reaction. This is evident when pets experience excessive itching and gnawing at the paws.
Again, systemic enzymes target proteins in the blood stream, break them down, and convert them into usable amino acids, which provides your pet with natural relief from allergens.
