Lipase is an enzyme that is required by your body to break down dietary fats into an absorbable form. Fats are the most difficult component of the diet to digest, and fatty foods are responsible for more indigestion than proteins or starches. Lipase controls the amount of fat being synthesized, reducing fat stores, and in sufficient quantities, it can help move stored fat to be burned as fuel.
Although Lipase helps to breakdown fats, it doesn't damage fat-soluble vitamins or the unsaturated fatty acids in GLA, DHA, and EPA.
Essential fatty acids are required to maintain cell energy and sustain life. Lipase converts dietary fats into essential fatty acids. As we age our body alters the production of key enzymes like lipase, leaving the door open for fatty acid imbalance. Fatty acid imbalance may lead to many common discomforts and ailments associated with aging. Supplementation of lipase, like the enzyme found in Zymitol may bridge this enzyme gap, promoting a healthier, more fulfilling lifestyle.
Serrapeptase is a powerful inflammation normalizer in its own right, so when it's combined with the other impressive ingredients in Zymitol, you can expect results. It is one of the many potent proteolytic enzymes available today that exhibits an unusually high fibrinolytic activity. It is generally well-tolerated.
This enzyme breaks down "non living" matter in your body. This action may promote a reduction in levels of dead tissue, and may also promote normal mucous levels both in the sinus and lung.
Serrapeptase, also known as Serratia peptidase, is a proteolytic enzyme isolated from the non-pathogenic enterobacteria Serratia E15. The enzyme is found naturally in the intestine of the silkworm, which is used by the silkworm to dissolve the cocoon and emerge as a moth. When consumed in unprotected tablets or capsules, the enzyme is destroyed by acid in the stomach. However, when enterically coated the enzyme passes through the stomach unchanged, and can be absorbed in the intestine.
It has many clinical uses including:
- as an anti-inflammatory agent (particularly for post traumatic swelling)
- for dissolving breast lumps
- for loosening and expelling mucus
Serrapeptase digests dead tissue, blood clots, cysts, and arterial plaque. The late German physician Dr. Hans Nieper, used serrapeptase to treat arterial blockage in his coronary patients. Clinical studies show that serrapeptase induces fibrinolytic, anti-inflammatory and anti-edemic (prevents swelling and fluid retention) activity in a number of tissues, and that its anti-inflammatory effects are superior to other proteolytic enzymes (12). Besides reducing inflammation, one of serrapeptase's most profound benefits is reduction of pain, due to its ability to block the release of pain-inducing amines from inflamed tissues (13). Physicians throughout Europe and Asia have recognized the anti-inflammatory band pain-blocking benefits of this naturally occurring substance and are using it in treatment as an alternative to salicylates, ibuprofen, and other NSAIDs(14).
Antioxidants provide your body a defense at the cellular level by stabilizing or deactivating free radicals before they attack cells.
Fulvic Acid is a powerful antioxidant and detoxifier. It fights pathogens, assisting with the elimination of toxins and waste from the lower gastrointestinal tract, as well as the at a cellular level. Additionally, fulvic acid electrolytes greatly increase the percentage rate of the digestive absorption of minerals, nutrients, vitamins and herbs, helping the body better utilize nutrients rather than being starved of nourishment. Fulvic Acid also works to stimulate enzyme activity helping them to work more efficiently and effectively throughout the body.
Flavonoids are in a class of water soluble plant pigments, that may deliver potent antioxidant support, and may promote normal, healthy cellular tissue throughout your body.
Flavonoids support health by strengthening capillaries and other connective tissue, and some function as anti-inflammatory, antihistaminic, and antiviral agents.
Flavonoids are thought to enhance the absorption of Vitamin C, and possibly to prolong its effectiveness.
Rutin is a powerful antioxidant that fights free radicals and seems to have a protective effect against syndromes that lower the body's oxygen supply. It may protect your blood vessels, and was shown to stimulate wound healing in rats, and augment the tensile strength of scar tissue significantly (18). Rutin may help to maintain normal, healthy digestive functions and may promote healthy circulation. It has the unique ability to improve capillaries and veins and it supports the regeneration capacity of human body tissues.
Rutin is a water soluble plant pigment that may deliver potent antioxidant support and may promote normal, healthy, cellular tissue throughout your body.
Like all of the other ingredients in Zymitol, rutin promotes healthy aging.
Amla is useful for stomach problems, it is antipyretic, hair tonic and nerve brain tonic. It's also useful in anemia, hyperacidity and in gynecological problems and epistaxis. Amla is considered to have restorative and preventive properties.
Also known as Indian gooseberry (Emblica officinalis) is the richest source of Vitamin C. It also contains tannic acid, glucose, protein, cellulose and Calcium.
Magnesium is an essential mineral that is commonly deficient in the American diet. A deficiency of magnesium leads to a wide range of health concerns because of its critical role in many enzyme actions. Its presence is critical in over 300 enzyme reactions and estimates for other roles of magnesium in the human body include over 50 different bio-chemical reactions.*
Magnesium assists in the absorption of calcium and potassium and works with calcium to support many different body functions. It has been found to contribute to bone formation and mineralization.*
Magnesium citrate may be used to reduce cravings for sugar and sweet foods while combating acids, toxins, gases, and other impurities in the body. It promotes limber, elastic tissue, it is a natural laxative, and may protect against fatty deposits in arteries. Magnesium may also be used by people experiencing fatigue, migraines and stress.*
