What Are Systemic Proteolytic Enzymes and How Can You Benefit from Them? By Steven Hefferon, CMT, PTA, CPRS
Proteolytic enzymes, also referred to as "proteases," are enzymes that break down proteins into their smallest elements.
If this breakdown of proteins happens in your gut, we call the enzymes "digestive," because they help us digest our food.
Systemic proteolytic enzymes, however, have a completely different purpose, so please don't confuse the two.
When taken on an empty stomach, proteolytic enzymes will pass through the stomach or intestine lining and enter the circulatory system. This is why they are called "systemic" - once they enter the circulatory system, they circulate throughout the body.
Why are systemic proteolytic enzymes important?
The most important thing that systemic proteolytic enzymes do is to break down excess fibrin in your circulatory system and in other connective tissue, such as your muscles. These enzymes
bring nutrients and oxygen-rich blood that remove the metabolic waste produced by inflammation and excess fibrin.
For example, If you have an injury or are recovering from a painful condition of any kind and your blood flow is restricted, you will have a longer recovery process.
In addition, the exchange of nutrients and oxygen in your body will be limited, and there will be not only a longer recovery but an increase in pain and inflammation.
One more important thing to understand: Whenever you're recovering from a muscle irritation, injury, or surgery, the body uses fibrin to help heal itself. This is normal and healthy. The only problem is that with poor blood flow and a lack of enzyme activity, that fibrin will start to accumulate. If the area in question is slow to heal, an excess of fibrin will appear as clumps of scar tissue in the muscle or at the surgical site. Once this happens, your acute condition becomes chronic.
Now that you know that excess fibrin throughout your circulatory system will severely limit the amount of blood flow to areas that need it the most, you may be wondering how the body tries to compensate for this restriction. The answer is simple: by forcing the heart to work harder and increasing your blood pressure....
