What is the recommended dosage of a Systemic Enzymes? The recommended dosage to be taken at 2 hours after or 30 minutes prior to meals is 3 capsules, once a day. However, since each individual is different and enzyme strength varies from product to product, a higher or lower dosage may be appropriate.
How long before a Systemic Enzymes takes effect? It may depend on the individual’s physiological make-up. Everyone is different. Testimonials from some of our customers reported positive effects ranging from 3 days to 2 weeks. Taking the right activation dosage is critical to the success of the product.
What claims do you make about the effectiveness of Systemic Enzymes? The FDA does not allow the neutraceutical industry to make claims about their products without scientific studies being performed that substantiate the claims. Our customers can share their experience with the product, but Return 2 Health Ltd (and the product manufacturer) do not make specific claims.
Are there any side effects of a Systemic Enzyme? We currently have no documented evidence of any adverse side effects based on the use of a Systemic Enzyme. You should not take this product without the consent of your physician if you are currently taking anti-coagulants, commonly known as blood thinners or if you are pregnant, lactating or trying to conceive.
Are there any compatibility issues with other neutraceuticals? No. In fact, since vitamins are coenzymes and minerals are cofactors to enzymes, enzymes are needed in the body for them to be able to have their full effect. In addition, the vitamins and minerals assist the enzymes. Thus, systemic enzyme use enhances the effect of other supplementation programs.
Are there any compatibility issues with any prescribed drugs? Yes. People using anti-coagulants, or blood thinners, should not use a Systemic Enzyme without the consent of their health practitioner. The enzymes enhance the effects of the blood thinning medications making them stronger. If you are on any prescribed medication it is always advisable to discuss your intended use of a Systemic Enzyme with your prescribing practitioner.
Why are some Systemic Enzymes called a vegetarian product? The enzymes used in most Systemic Enzymes are plant derived with no animal products. This allows everyone, including strict vegetarians, to take them. Some enzyme products use ingredients that are derived from bovine (cows).
How are Systemic Enzymes grown? Is the process ecologically safe? Does the process use any chemicals? The enzymes in Vitalzym come from two sources; the fruit enzymes along with the Amla and Rutin are from fruit grown in organic plantations; the Protease and Serrapeptase are each lab grown in a protein (fungus) medium. The enzymes are then extracted from the medium so that not a trace of fungus is left on the enzyme and the purity is assured.
What is Serrapeptase and where does it come from? Serrapeptase is a powerful proteolytic enzyme. Serrapeptase is laboratory grown.
Does the weather or temperature affect Systemic Enzymes? Exposure to heat over 60° C (150° F ) for an extended period can destroy the enzymes. Store Systemic Enzymes in a cool, dry place, with the lid of the bottle tightly closed.
