The Benefits of Enzymes by Prof Celene Bernstein

There are 2 kinds of enzymes – Proteolytic Enzymes that break down proteins into their smallest elements, and Digestive Enzymes that help us digest our food. Systemic proteolytic enzymes, however, have a completely different purpose to digestive enzymes, because they pass through the stomach or intestine lining and enter the circulatory system. This is why they are called “systemic” – once they enter the circulatory system, they circulate throughout the body.

Why are systemic proteolytic enzymes important?

The most important thing that systemic proteolytic enzymes do is to break down excess fibrin in your circulatory system and in other connective tissue, such as your muscles. These enzymes bring nutrients and oxygen-rich blood that removes the metabolic waste produced by inflammation and excess fibrin. Systemic Proteolytic enzymes improve the flow characteristics of the blood and increase the flexibility of red blood cells, improving their ability to pass through the arteries. They inhibit the aggregation of platelets and increase the fibrinolytic activity in the blood to help prevent abnormal clotting.

Systemic oral enzymes have a regulatory effect on the immune system. They activate macrophages and natural killer cells. The result is that the body’s immune system is better equipped in numbers to deal with inflammation by cleansing itself of cellular debris and to quickly neutralize errant cancer cells. They regulate the metabolism of cell mediator substances such as tumor necrosis factor and interleukins. These tough agents kill dangerous cells and tissues circulating in the body-including foreign proteins, and inflammatory debris.

The dangers of too much fibrin:

The body uses fibrin to help heal itself after injury or surgery. This is normal and healthy. The only problem is that with poor blood flow and a lack of enzyme activity, that fibrin will start to accumulate. If the area in question is slow to heal, an excess of fibrin will appear as clumps of scar tissue in the muscle or at the surgical site. Once this happens, the acute condition becomes chronic.

The excess fibrin throughout the circulatory system will severely limit the amount of blood flow to areas that need it the most and the body tries to compensate for this restriction by forcing the heart to work harder and thereby increasing the blood pressure. The medical community has long known that excess fibrin presents a cardiac and stroke risk and finally, they have acknowledged a link between excess fibrin and chronic systemic inflammation, the true root cause of virtually every disease and painful condition know to man.

Which conditions do proteolytic enzymes help and how?

Systemic proteolytic enzymes accelerate the healing process They support the cleansing of the tissues, promote better circulation and stimulate the formation of new, healthy tissue.

The list below is only a sample of the types of conditions that can be addressed with systemic proteolytic enzymes that all have one thing in common – excess fibrin, which causes a reduction in blood flow:



Back Pain

Chronic Fatigue

Chronic Pain

Fibrocystic Breast


High Blood Pressure

Herniated Disc



Spinal Stenosis

Strains and Sprains

Post-operative Scar Tissue

Traumatic Inflammation

Uterine Fibroids


How long does it take to start to work?

Enzymes go to work immediately. There are a number of factors that bear on how fast the enzymes will work for you, including dosage, quality of sleep, diet, and physical activity. Even the very treatments you are undergoing to try to get better could be holding you back.
