Enzymedica - Free Radical Defenze Antioxidant Enzyme Formula - 60 Capsules
Enzymedica Free Radical Defenze helps reduce free radical damage in the body. Free radicals are produced as the normal by-products of digestion and respiration and are also the result of numerous other factors such as exposure to pollutants, cigarette smoke, ultra violet light and X-rays. Free radical damage has been associated with aging and numerous disease states, including atherosclerosis, emphysema, Parkinson's disease, senility, schizophrenia, Alzheimer's disease, cancer, arthritis, and inflammation.
Enzymedica Defenze represents one of the most potent formulas available to neutralize these harmful free radicals. Enzymes are much more effective antioxidants than nutrients alone as is seen in recent research, using various antioxidant markers. Defenze vastly outperformed a buffered form of vitamin C containing bioflavonoids. Among the indications tested were caffeine clearance, liver detoxification and glutathione levels.

Defenze contains a combination of potent antioxidant enzymes including superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase, and our exclusive protease Thera-blend. SOD aids in neutralizing free radicals and is part of the 'oxidative burst' that immune cells release to destroy bacteria and viruses that have gained access to the cells of the body. Catalase is an extremely efficient enzyme that removes toxins from the body. Its primary function is to turn hydrogen peroxide (a free radical compound) into water and oxygen. One molecule of catalase can dismantle millions of hydrogen peroxide molecules each second. Protease has a long history of therapeutic use as a detoxifier that supports immune function.
Defenze also contains glutathione and alpha-lipoic acid (ALA). Glutathione is an antioxidant molecule formed in the liver. Its main functions are to assist in DNA repair, neutralize toxins, protect cells from free radicals, and boost immune function. Deficiencies of this nutrient are associated with aging and various disease states. It also regenerates other antioxidants like vitamin C and E.Cutting Edge Protection!
Defenze has been proven to provide overall immune support with cutting edge protection against free radical damage. It is the most potent and most effective antioxidant enzyme formula available and is backed up by the research required to prove it.
About Enzymedica: The Enzyme Experts
Enzymedica is dedicated to providing exceptional enzyme-focused supplements at the most therapeutic levels available in the natural foods industry and beyond. It is their commitment to provide unprecedented education and research that propels individuals on the path to vibrant health.
In the spring of 1998, Enzymedica was born. The role of Enzymedica is to offer the public the most effective enzyme products available. They utilize the expertise of doctors, researchers and clinicians in formulating each of their products. They are proud of what they have to offer the public, namely therapeutic enzyme supplements that have been health professional proven.
Enzymedica's entire focus and purpose is enzymes. They are the experts. Unlike most of their competitors, Enzymedica does not make vitamin supplements or herbal cleanses. All they manufacture are the highest quality, highest potency enzyme products available.
Enzymedica products are Health Professional proven. Enzymedica products contain the highest therapeutic activities available. No other company uses higher active units in a multiple enzyme line. In addition to a digestive enzyme that is on average three times stronger than their competitors, Enzymedica has a therapeutic digestive enzyme blend, a carbohydrate digestion and allergy assistance blend, a blood purifier, and a fat digestion and cardiovascular product.
Enzymedica is proud to be GMP Registered through NSF International. Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) are guidelines that provide a system of processes, procedures, and documentation to assure the product produced has the identity, strength, composition, quality, and purity that it is represented to possess.
NSF International helps protect you by certifying products and writing standards for food, water and consumer goods. As an independent, not-for-profit organization, NSF's ongoing public health commitment is to encourage everyone to live safer. The NSF GMP Registration for contract manufacturers and internal manufacturing facilities of dietary supplement companies enables contract manufacturers to become independently registered by NSF as complying with GMP requirements as listed in Section 8 of NSF/ANSI Standard 173-2006. NSF's Dietary Supplement Standard is updated to keep pace with FDA GMP regulations.
Enzymedica uses an exclusive Thera-blend process for its protease, lipase, amylase and cellulase. This means that each of these enzymes actually represents multiple strains. For example, there are actually four proteases in the Thera-blend protease. They are blended for their ability to break down numerous bonds of protein in varying pH levels. Enzymedica does this at a considerable expense. From a label description Enzymedica also sacrifices active units to provide the best blend possible. A single protease, for example, could produce more active units per milligram than a multiple protease. However, the active pH would be narrow and the number of protein bonds it could break would be limited.
Enzymedica products are 100% vegan and vegetarian. Enzymedica uses no fillers in any of its enzyme formulations.
You will no doubt notice how small the capsules are in comparison to similar products. This is a result of using concentrates with no fillers.
Enzymedica continues to research the therapeutic effectiveness of plant based enzymes through doctors and clinicians. Currently, the company is coordinating and funding research that is ongoing. Enzymedica has every batch third party tested. This ensures they always meet label claim.
