Due to popular demand, World Nutrition continues to make the original metabolic enzyme formula that madeVitlzym famous.  We now carry both the originalVitlzym vegicaps and the new Vitlzym Softgels. Read the full description of both enzymes below.

NEW Vitlzym Softgels

The new enteric-coated gel capsule has been designed towithstand the extremely low pH levels found in the stomach.The effectiveness of any systemic enzyme is determined by the amount of activity level in the blood stream after being absorbed from small intestine. Enzymes, whose activities are significantly lost in an acidic environment, must be protected for their utmost effectiveness.World Nutritionhas reformulatedVitlzym with a new softgel that uses a pharmaceutical grade enteric coated capsule to ensure that 100% of the enzyme activity is absorbed into the blood stream through the lining of the small intestine.

Vitlzym is a blend of systemic enzymes that work synergistically together providing total system support. This exciting formula contains Bromelain, Papain, Amylase, Lipase, and Serrapeptase. Serrapeptase is a peptidase that is used worldwide as an anti-inflammatory enzyme, replacing bovine derived trypsin and chymotrypsin. In addition to enzymes, Vitlzym is supplemented with Amla, found naturally in the gooseberry. This unique ingredient provides very synergistic support to the enzymatic activity of Vitlzym and is well known for its antioxidant properties. It also contains Rutin, which is highly regarded as nature's super anti-oxidant. Vitlzym does not contain any animal derivatives, which opens the door to vegetarians. It is produced with enterically coated enzymes, and is formulated to operate in an extremely wide pH range, allowing for better absorption.

Digestive Enzymes vs. Systemic Enzymes:
Digestive enzymes conduct their actions in the stomach to digest food while systemic enzymes are enterically coated to prevent contact with the stomach acid. This way they pass through the stomach in to the intestines where they are absorbed in to the body.

The primary functions of systemic enzymes:

  • Fight inflammation
  • Fight fibrosis (scar tissue)
  • Modulate the immune system
  • Cleanse the blood
  • Fight Viruses

Vitlzym Ingredients:

Proteolytic enzyme (Protease)
The term "proteolytic" refers to all enzymes that digest protein. Other classes of enzymes include Amylase a digestive enzyme that breaks down carbohydrates and Lipase a digestive enzyme that breaks down fat during the digestive process. Each of these help in the digestion of food which in turn helps with absorption of those essential nutrients in the diet. In the body, proteolytic digestive enzymes are produced in the pancreas, but supplemental forms of enzymes may come from fungal or bacterial sources, extraction from the pancreas of livestock animals (trypsin/chymotrypsin) or extraction from plants (such as papain from the papaya and Bromelain from pineapples). The primary uses of proteolytic enzymes in dietary supplements are used as digestive enzymes, anti-inflammatory agents and pain relievers.

There are a number of clinical trials showing the benefit of using oral proteolytic enzymes as a digestive aid. Proteolytic enzymes are also theorized to help reduce symptoms of food allergies and as a treatment for rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune diseases

Perhaps the strongest evidence for benefits of proteolytic enzyme supplements come from numerous European studies showing various enzyme blends to be effective in accelerating recovery from exercise and injury in sportsmen as well as tissue repair in patients following surgery. In one study of footballers suffering from ankle injuries, proteolytic enzyme supplements accelerated healing and got players back on the field about 50% faster than athletes assigned to receive a placebo tablet. A handful of other small trials in athletes have shown enzymes can help reduce inflammation, speed healing of bruises and other tissue injuries (including fractures) and reduce overall recovery time when compared to athletes taking a placebo. In patients recovering from facial and various reconstructive surgeries, treatment with proteolytic enzymes significantly reduced swelling, bruising and stiffness compared to placebo groups.

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 Fibrocystic breast disease
  • for Bronchitis (Serrapeptase loosens and expels mucous)

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. 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. Physicians throughout Europe and Asia have recognized the anti-inflammatory and pain-blocking benefits of this naturally occurring substance and are using it in treatment as an alternative to salicylates, ibuprofen, and other NSAIDs.

Bromelain & Papain
Both Bromelain and Papain are plant derived proteolytic enzymes. Bromelain, also known as bromelin, is a protein-digesting enzyme extracted from the flesh and stem of the pineapple plant, Ananas comosus. Papain, is a proteolytic enzyme isolated from the papaya plant, Carica papaya. Bromelain is most notable for its effectiveness in the reduction of inflammation and decreasing swelling, but the scope of its benefits continues to increase. As a natural anti-inflammatory enzyme, bromelain has many uses. Arthritis patients may reduce the swelling that causes joint pain by taking bromelain. Bromelain may also be helpful for the pain, numbness, tingling, aching, and loss of motor and sensory function in the fingers resulting from carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). Prevention of the adhesiveness of platelets to endothelial cell walls was accomplished with 0.1 mcg/ml of Bromelian. Thus the benefit of bromelain occurs over a broad range of doses, and even small amounts may be beneficial to anyone at risk to thrombotic heart attack or stroke. Papain has been shown to be effective in preventing burn wound infection and helping remove dead cells. Papain is also used for the following:

  • Defibrinating wounds in hospitals
  • Preventing cornea scar deformation
  • Used in treatments of jellyfish and insect stings
  • To treat edemas, inflammatory processes, and in the acceleration of wound healing
  • In low doses as an indigestion medicine

Papain has been used to treat ulcers, dissolve membranes in diphtheria and reduce swelling, fever and adhesions after surgery.

Also known as Indian gooseberry (Emblica officinalis) is the richest source of Vitamin C. It also contains tannic acid, glucose, protein, cellulose and Calcium. 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.

Is one of the many existing Flavonoids. Flavonoids are a class of water-soluble plant pigments. Flavonoids support health by strengthening capillaries and other connective tissue, and some function as anti-inflammatory, antihistaminic, and antiviral agents. Rutin and several other flavonoids may also protect blood vessels. Rutin was shown to stimulate wound healing in rats and augment the tensile strength of scar tissue significantly.
