The immune system is one of the most profoundly complex systems of the body, responsible for ceaseless tasks that keep us strong, healthy, and in balance- every day, all of the time. It is active 24/7, fighting off foreign invaders like bacteria, viruses, microbes, parasites and toxins that we encounter every day.
Essentially, the immune system acts as the “gatekeeper” for our bodies; if anything out of the ordinary makes it’s way into the body, it is the immune system’s job to deal with it, hopefully in time so that we don’t notice anything gone awry in our health.
Most of us tend to take the seamless actions of the immune system for granted, not really giving much thought to our immune systems until something comes along to knock us off our feet, aka: we get sick. Getting sick can be something as common as a cold or flu, or as complex as auto-immune diseases or cancer. Whatever the root of the sickness is, however, it is always a reflection of an immune system that has become weak or out of balance and needs some bolstering.
It is unrealistic for most of us in this day and age to stay in perfect balance all of the time; at some point, we will probably catch a cold or flu. If we’re lucky, that is the worst of it, and we get back on our feet quickly. The reality is, however, that maintaining a strong immune system boils down to more than just luck. Proper self- care is critical to keep our bodies in tip top shape from the inside out. Stress, poor diet, inflammation, lack of sleep and inappropriate exercise or lack of exercise are often the culprits in getting sick, both for acute and chronic stress. In fact, the longer our body remains out of balance due to one or more of these factors, the more prone we are to experiencing some kind of more serious illness. Many auto-immune diseases have shown to be rooted in inflammation in the body, and inflammation, of course, is a reflection of a body in distress; it is a quintessential immune response.
What exactly are systemic enzymes, and how can they help? Enzymes are proteins that are responsible for every chemical reaction that goes on in your body; governing all functions related to your tissues, muscles, bones, organs, and cells, and immunity. Every second of our lives, over 3,000 different enzymes are renewing and changing. Research shows that as we age, our natural enzyme production and supply become depleted, in large part due to the demands that come with living in our modern world. Often when we first notice signs of feeling unwell, it is because of insufficient enzyme production in our bodies.
Vitalzym is a systemic enzyme blend notably high in serrapeptase- an enzyme shown to be particularly effective in supporting better health and immunity. It is incredibly effective in supporting the immune system and can work for both acute illness like a cold or flu, or for chronic illness like auto-immune disorders.
Vitalzym for Viruses and Bacteria
The enzymes in Vitalzym are ideal for boosting the immune system because they are adaptogenic, meaning they restore a steady state to the body. When the immune system is running low, we become susceptible to infectious disease. Vitalzym increases immune response, producing more Natural Killer cells, and improving the efficiency of the white blood cells, all leading to improved immunity. Vitalzym is uniquely effective at fighting pathogens like viruses and bacteria because it can break down the cell wall of the pathogen. Viruses harm us by replicating in our bodies. To do this, a virus must bond itself to the DNA in our cells through the medium of its exterior protein cell wall. Anything that disrupts that cell wall inhibits the ability of viral replication by rendering individual viruses inert. Systemic enzymes can tell the difference between the proteins that are supposed to be in your body and those that are foreign or not supposed to be there, such as viruses. Vitalzym has the strongest protein eating effects of any enzyme due to its Serrapeptase content, which can help improve anti-vials and can actually lower the viral load in your body.
Vitalzym for Autoimmune conditions
The beauty of adaptogenic substances is that they are versatile; they restore homeostasis in the body. Just as systemic enzymes can boost the immune system when it is low, they can also tone down an immune system that has been cranked up too high, as is the case with autoimmune diseases like Multiple Sclerosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Lupus and others. In this case, Vitalzym will tone down immune function and eat away at the antibodies the immune system is making to attack its body's own tissue.
How do enzymes do this? Enzymes have a lock and key mechanism; they fit only with specific proteins in the body. They know which proteins to bind with because the body creates something called circulating immune complexes, or CICs (you can think of CICs as the lock, and of systemic enzymes as the key). Some CICs are necessary, and help to keep the body running balanced and smoothly. Some, however, can cause problems.
When a person is injured or has an acute illness, the body “tags” the injured area or the invader with CICs, and this creates an inflammation response, at which point the immune system steps in to heal and repair us. Generally, this is a rather brilliant system. With auto-immune conditions however, proteins in the body are being inappropriately tagged, creating a hyper active immune response. Vitalzym can essentially “read” the tags, and know which CICs are exogenous, or foreign and should be dealt with, and which CICs are endogenous, or internally made and should be left alone, thus helping to restore proper immune function. In this way, systemic enzymes help to regulate an over burdened, hyper functioning immune system, thus helping to manage auto-immune conditions.
Vitalzym is a brilliantly designed potent natural enzyme product that can help keep our immune systems running like the well oiled machine we need to keep us strong and healthy. Enzymes play a foundational role maintaining health and balance in our bodies. Supplementing with Vitalzym to promote a strong immune system or to help balance a system that is already showing signs of distress is a prudent move that can help keep you well for years to come.
