Zymessence® is part of an emerging "new
breed" of products in the field of Systemic Enzyme Therapy.
It combines the best of both the "Old School" and
the "New School" science of proteolytic enzymes (systemic enzymes) to
form a super effective and affordable blend.
The "Old School" Systemic Enzymes,
blended animal pancreatin (usually a 4X, 6X, 8X or 10X dilution)
with fruit enzymes and then added Trypsin and Chymotrypsin
extracts (also from Pancreatin) to create a wide-ranging
and effective action.
The drawback is Trypsin and Chymotrypsin are extremely expensive
so not a lot is put into each tablet or capsule! The upside
to using animal based pancreatin is research and clinical
experience show that these enzyme blends last 24 to 36 hours
in the body.
The "New School" Systemic Enzymes,
blend fruit, vegetable and fermented fungal based enzymes (such
as fermented Serrapeptase), to increase the action of their
product. As Serrapeptase is substantially stronger than Trypsin
or Chymotrypsin, it does in fact increase the effectiveness
of these enzyme blends several fold. The drawback is that clinical
experience and research both show that these enzyme products
only have 4 to 6 hours of action before they leave the body.
The upside is Serrapeptase, though stronger, is far less expensive
than Chymotrypsin and Trypsin so more can be put into each
tablet or capsule!
Zymessence® takes a page from the "Old School":
The Zymessence® blend uses undiluted,
full strength animal (porcine) based Pancreatin (with
its naturally occurring Trypsin and Chymotrypsin) for
its longer lasting effects.
Then Zymessence® takes a page from the "New School":
Zymessence® combines Serrapeptidase
Bromelain and Papain (the usual fruit enzymes) to greatly increase its effectiveness
while keeping costs low!
Finally... Zymessence® uses an advanced pharmaceutical "enteric
Common enteric coatings
just on the outside of a tablet or capsule are meant
to protect the contents against destruction by stomach
acid. Most enzymes are very sensitive to acids and are
easily destroyed. But mere enteric coatings on the outside
can be scratched or pitted just by the tablets knocking
around inside their bottle! This allows stomach acid
to enter the product and deactivate it before it has a chance
to do any good. The advanced pharmaceutical "Enteric Matrix Technology" used
in the production of Zymessence® means the entire enzyme blend
is protected by an enteric film that runs
through every micro-granule within it, thus ensuring
greater protection of the enzymes and increased absorption
