World Nutrition Vitalzym Extra Strength Systemic Enzyme - 180 Capsules
Introducing the world's first enteric coated enzyme in liquid-filled gel capsule form...World Nutrition Vitalzym. The highest quality systemic enzymes are rendered ineffective without a proper enteric coated delivery system. Enteric coatings allow the capsule to bypass the stomach acids so that the enzymes can be absorbed into the bloodstream through the walls of the small intestine. Without an effective enteric coating, the majority of the contents are used by the body primarily as digestive aids or are simply destroyed by the stomach's acids.
- Vitalzym is natural.
- Promotes a Balanced Lifestyle.
- New Enteric Coated Liquid Gel Capsules.
- Extra Strength Systemic Enzyme Dietary Supplement.
Enzymes normally found in the body are needed for each of the millions of biochemical reactions in our body. Without these enzymes, human life could not exist.
Why Systemic Enzymes
Enzymes are the building blocks of life. Enzymes are the biocatalysts necessary for the chemical reactions associated with breathing, growth, reproduction, digestion and all other metabolic functions. For most people under the age of 25, enzymes are efficiently produced by the body to maintain optimal health. As we age, our levels of enzyme production begin to decelerate. This reduction of enzyme levels may cause our bodies and normal body functions to break down.
Supplementation with systemic enzymes may help the body to more efficiently use its own metabolic enzymes, thereby reducing the physiological effects of aging. Vitalzym is a unique blend of powerful systemic enzymes that may help the body to more efficiently use its own metabolic enzymes.
Physicians in Europe and Asia have long prescribed systemic enzyme supplements to restore enzyme levels and promote natural healing. Combined with professional healthcare, proper diet and exercise, Vitalzym may help you to maintain proper enzyme amounts and balance your body's own repair mechanisms.

Vitalzym is recommended by healthcare professionals worldwide. The unique blend of vegetarian enzymes, f1avonoids, and antioxidants has been formulated for 100% bioavailability.
Serrapeptase, a key ingredient in Vitalzym, was originally discovered in Japan and is commercially produced there for medical applications. It has been used as a substitute for animal-derived enzymes, such as chymotrypsin, due to its stronger effect in terms of bradykinin-decomposing activity. The serrapeptase used in Vitalzym is the same as that used by the Japanese pharmaceutical blend of serrapeptase.
New Advanced Delivery System - Enteric Coated Liquid Filled Capsule
Vitalzym has been reformulated with a technologically advanced delivery system that allows for reduced dosage and vastly increased effectiveness.
The effectiveness of any systemic enzyme is determined by the amount of activity level in the brood stream (in vivo) after being absorbed from small intestine. Enzymes, whose activities are significantly lost in an acidic environment, must be protected for their utmost effectiveness. Enzymes will begin to lose their activity once introduced into the low pH (1.0 - 3.0) acids of the stomach. The amount of activity loss is dependent upon the individual enzyme and the amount of time in the stomach. Studies have shown that unprotected enzymes can lose up to 100% of their activity in fewer than 30 minutes in pH levels below 3.0. The only method to ensure that 100% of the ingredients are not destroyed by the stomach acids is to enteric coat the enzymes. Vitalzym has been reformulated to use a pharmaceutical grade enteric coated gel capsule.
The new enteric coated gel capsule has been designed to pass both the USP (United States Pharmacopeia) and JP (Japan Pharmacopeia) disintegration tests for enteric coated capsules. Every production batch is tested to meet the agency guidelines before exportation to the US. Though revolutionary to nutritional enzyme blends, this enteric coating process is similar to those used in today's most advanced pharmaceuticals. The capsule has a corn protein shell barrier that allows it to withstand the extremely low pH levels found in the stomach. Once introduced to the pancreatic juices in the duodenum (upper small intestine), the shell barrier breaks down to release its enzymes. The enzymes are then absorbed into the blood stream through the lining of the small intestine. The corn protein barrier is the same as that used by the Japanese pharmaceutical blend of serrapeptase.

Solubilized Liquid Filled Gel Capsule
At the center of the advanced delivery system is a new Solubilized Liquid Filled Gel Capsule. The technology of liquid enzymes is superior to that of capsules filled with powder due to low heat production, more uniform dose distribution and prolonged enzyme activity.
Low Heat Production
Enzyme blends are available today that use an enteric coating, however they are in tablet form. The disadvantage of these blends is the amount of heat created when compressing the ingredients in to a tablet. Enzymes are susceptible to high temperatures and may begin to degrade during the manufacturing process. Solubilized Liquid Filled Capsules allow for an enteric coated enzyme without activity loss from heat. Throughout all of the processes, Vitalzym is produced under strictly controlled temperature ranges.
Prolonged Enzyme Activity
Liquid enzymes are able to provide a more uniform dose consistency because the mixing of liquids allows for optimal particle distribution. In powder formulations, each particle of a different enzyme is different in size, causing greater friction between particles when mixing. Excipients are introduced to powder formulations to help increase the mixability, however liquids still prove to be far more evenly distributed allowing for more consistent dosages in each capsule.
Enzyme blends retain moisture from water when they are produced. When tested using the industry standard "loss on drying" measurement, these blends typically have a 5-10% moisture content. Powder enzyme blends will lose activity as this moisture dries, resulting in a loss of up to 20% of activity over a 12 month period. Vitalzym uses enzymes with higher purity and less moisture that are combined with Medium-Chain Triglycerides (MCT). The process of combining with the MCT's causes the moisture to separate from the enzyme blend so that it can be removed before encapsulation. As a result, there is no loss of enzyme activity after production due to moisture drying. Users will also experience the many health benefits of MCT's.

The Benefits of Solubilized Liquid-Filled Gel Capsule Technology.
- All Natural Enteric Coating - The effectiveness of any systemic enzyme is determined by the amount of activity level in the bloodstream after the enzyme has been absorbed from the small intestine. Enzymes that are susceptible to destruction in acidic conditions must be protected for delivery to the small intestine. Systemic enzymes will begin to lose their activity once introduced into the low pH (1.0-3.0) acids of the stomach. The amount of activity loss is dependent upon the individual enzyme and the amount of time it spends in the stomach. Studies have shown that unprotected enzymes can lose up to 100% of their activity in fewer than 30 minutes in pH levels below 3.0. The only reliable method of ensuring that 100% of the enzymes are not destroyed by the stomach acids is to enteric-coat the enzymes. Vitalzym has been formulated to use an enteric coated gel capsule manufactured under pharmaceutical-grade guidelines.
Though revolutionary to nutritional enzyme blends, this enteric coating process is similar to that used in today's most advanced products. The capsule has an all-natural shell barrier that allows it to withstand the extremely low pH levels found in the stomach. Once introduced to the pancreatic juices in the duodenum (upper small intestine), the shell barrier breaks down to release the enzymes it contains. The enzymes are then absorbed into the bloodstream through the lining of the small intestine.

Every batch is tested to ensure it meets the agency guidelines before exportation to the U.S.
- More Concentrated. More Activity. More Stability. - Powder enzyme blends are available today that use an enteric coating, but they are typically in tablet form (see fig. 1). The disadvantage of these blends is the amount of heat created with compressing the ingredients into a tablet. Enzymes are susceptible to high temperatures and may begin to degrade during the manufacturing process.
Vitalzym is produced under strictly controlled temperature ranges and because of this our Liquid-Filled Gel Capsules allow for an enteric coated enzyme to be developed without activity loss from heat. There are also enzyme formulations available in vegetable and gelatin capsules that claim to have an enteric coating (see fig. 2). An independent laboratory has put these to the test and has yet to find one that passes the US Pharmacopeia standard for enteric coating.
In fact, the best performing vegetable capsule tested lost more than 85% of its enzyme activity after being subjected to stomach conditions. In other words, less than 15% of its concentration was available for absorption to the bloodstream. Liquid enzyme blends also provide a more uniform dose consistency, because the mixing of liquids allows for optimal particle distribution. In powder formulations, each particle of a different enzyme is different in size, causing greater friction between particles during mixing. Excipients are introduced to powder formulations to increase the mixability, but liquids still provide far more even distribution of ingredients, allowing for more consistent dosages in each capsule.
Enzymes always retain some amount of moisture when they are produced. Enzymes, as proteins, are more susceptible to denaturation at higher moisture. Enzyme powders typically have lower (5-10%) moisture. However, even with lower moisture, enzyme powders will lose some of their activity over time, resulting in a loss of up to 20% of activity over a 12-month period. Vitalzym contains enzymes with a higher degree of purity and less moisture that, when combined with Medium-Chain Triglycerides (MCT), then decompressed during the manufacturing process, removes the moisture completely. As a result, loss of enzyme activity over time due to moisture will not occur after Vitalzym is produced. Vitalzym is manufactured to have a 5-year shelf life with no loss of activity when properly stored in a cool, dry place.
- Best Value - There are many cheap enzyme products available today. However, when comparing the value of each blend, Vitalzym continues to prove to be the least expensive option due to its unmatched efficacy. High concentrations of active, stable enzymes delivered to the bloodstream allows for the least amount of waste in an oral systemic enzyme supplement. When comparing the amount of pure enzymes delivered to the bloodstream for systemic effect, Vitalzym offers the best value of any systemic enzyme supplement available today.
- Serrapeptase - Also known as Serratia peptidase; a proteolytic enzyme isolated from the non-pathogenic enterobacteria Serratia E15. Serrapeptase has been shown to be one of the most popular enzymes available today.
- Protease - Any enzyme that catalyzes the splitting of proteins into smaller peptide fractions and amino acids by a process known as proteolysis.
- Bromelain - An enzyme found in pineapples that breaks down other proteins, such as collagen.
- Papain - A proteolytic enzyme obtained from unripe papaya.
- Amylase - Any of a group of proteins found in saliva and pancreatic juice and parts of plants, Amylase digests carbohydrates and helps convert starch to sugar.
- Lipase - Lipase digests fat. It is an enzyme secreted in the digestive tract that catalyzes the breakdown of fats into individual fatty acids that can be absorbed into the bloodstream.
- Amla - Amla is a great source of Vitamin C.
- Rutin - One of the many existing flavonoids. Flavonoids support health by strengthening capillaries and other connective tissue.
World Nutrition Questions & Answers
Vitälzym is a systemic enzyme supplement. What are enzymes?
Enzymes are proteins that are the biocatalysts for thousands of chemical reactions associated with all of our bodies’ most important functions. Breathing, growth, reproduction, digestion and many other metabolic functions rely on enzymes. Simply put, without enzymes, we can not live.
How do enzymes benefit me?
Enzymes serve six major functions. They are a natural anti-inflammatory, eat scar tissue and fibrosis, help keep our immune system in a steady state, cleanse our blood, fight viruses and regulate our metabolism.
What does the word “systemic” mean as it relates to systemic enzymes?
The word “systemic” in “systemic enzymes” refers to an enzyme’s utilization throughout the entire body. In other words, systemic enzymes don’t merely focus on one area of the body like digestive enzymes do, for example. Systemic enzymes work throughout your entire body to provide a variety of different benefits.
Why are systemic enzyme supplements important?
Generally speaking, the body has a sufficient supply of enzymes through age 25. But once a person reaches their mid-twenties, enzyme production begins to diminish, which can reduce the efficiency of normal body functions. Taking a systemic enzyme supplement can help restore your enzyme levels and promote natural healing.
What conditions should I take Vitälzym for?
Vitälzym may help defend against pain, inflammation, fibromyalgia, fibroids, scar tissue, arthritis, hypertension and more.
What is the key to Systemic Enzyme effectiveness?
The amount of enzyme activity level in the bloodstream after the enzyme has been absorbed into the small intestine determines its effectiveness.
Why is an enteric coating so important?
Enzymes can lose activity when exposed to stomach acids. Studies have shown that unprotected enzymes can lose up to 100 percent of their effectiveness in less than 30 minutes when exposed to conditions like those found in the stomach.
Enteric coating is the only method available to ensure that none of the enzymes in the capsule are destroyed. The enteric coating allows the enzyme capsule to survive its pass through the stomach and reach the small intestine where nearly 100 percent of the enzymes are then released into the small intestine for more complete absorption into the bloodstream and dispersed throughout the body. Enteric coating is the best and most effective oral delivery system for systemic enzymes.
What is the benefit of a liquid formulation?
Enzymes may begin to degrade when exposed to high temperatures like those utilized in manufacturing tablet-based enzymes. Vitälzym’s liquid base is manufactured under strictly-controlled temperatures, resulting in no activity loss caused by heat.
Liquid enzyme formulations also provide for more ingredient consistency in every capsule and a shelf life of at least three years, which is double the industry average. Vitälzym is the only systemic enzyme supplement on the market that boasts a delivery system which combines both an enteric coating and a liquid formulation.
What is the proprietary Vitälzym blend comprised of?
Vitälzym is a unique blend of enzymes, flavonoids and antioxidants that includes Serrapeptase, Bromelain, Papain, Rutin, Amylase, Protease, Lipase and Amla.
What is Serrapeptase?
Vitälzym’s key ingredient is Serrapeptase, which is a proteolytic enzyme that is able to digest dead tissue, blood clots and cysts. Clinical studies show that Serrapeptase induces fibrinolytic, anti-inflammatory and anti-edemic activity in a number of tissues, and its anti-inflammatory effects are superior to other proteolytic enzymes.
Where do Vitälzym enzymes come from?
The enzymes in Vitälzym are taken from two sources – fruit and enzymes that are cultured in a lab setting in a protein medium. The enzymes are then extracted from the protein medium in a process that assures they remain pure.
What is the suggested Vitälzym dose?
For general maintenance, the recommended Vitälz?m dose is three capsules a day. However, every individual is different and a higher or lower dosage may be appropriate depending on the conditions you are dealing with. Your dosage can be taken at one time or in several dosages throughout the day.
Can I take too much Vitälzym?
Enzymes are non-toxic so you can not overdose on them.
When is the best time to take Vitälzym?
To achieve maximum absorption, it is always best to take systemic enzymes on an empty stomach. You should take Vitälzym at least 30 minutes before a meal or 60 minutes after a meal.
How long will I have to take Vitälzym before I see results?
Everyone is different, and the timeframe usually depends on an individual’s physiological makeup. Users have reported positive effects in as little as three days and usually no longer than four weeks.
Are there any side effects with Vitälzym?
With the exception of minor detoxification reactions experienced by a very few users (usually mild to moderate flu-like symptoms), there is no documented evidence of any adverse side effects resulting from the use of Vitälzym.
Are there any compatibility issues with any prescribed drugs?
Patients using anticoagulants, or blood thinners, should not use Vitälzym without the consent of their physician.
Are the components of Vitälzym derived from non-GMO sources?
Yes, all ingredients in Vitälzym are derived from non-GMO (non-genetically modified organism) sources. Vitälzym is also all-natural and contains no titanium dioxide or talc.
Is Vitälzym a vegetarian product?
Yes. Animal products are not used in the manufacture of Vitälzym. The enzymes are derived from plants and lab-grown cultures. Other enzymes on the market use trypsin and chymotrypsin in their formulations, which are porcine and bovine derived.
How should Vitälzym be stored?
You should store Vitälzym in a cool, dry place, with the bottle’s lid tightly closed. Exposure to heat over 150 degrees for an extended period of time can destroy enzymes.
Does using a systemic enzyme supplement eliminate the need to take aspirin?
Aspirin is effective in keeping your platelets from aggregating, which helps reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke. But long-term use of aspirin can be toxic to the liver and kidneys. Every year, close to 20,000 Americans die and more than 100,000 are hospitalized due to complications from taking aspirin and other Non Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) such as Ibuprofen, Celebrex and Viox. Enzymes, meanwhile, have no toxic effects and are 100 percent safe.
