This year I’ve been focused heavily on improving my own health. This past spring I continued with another detox, and I started taking systemic enzymes again. I’m honestly not sure why I had ever stopped. Systemic enzymes are not your average digestive enzymes. These enzymes actually work on healing and balancing the ENTIRE body, not just the digestion system alone.
The reason why our wounds don’t heal as quickly as when we were much younger is simply because our body slows down the amount of systemic enzymes in which is produced heavily prior to the age of 27. I believe that this age most likely varies for everyone, yet that our body slows down in enzyme production is still a fact. Enzymes simply make everything in the body work faster and more efficiently.
Systemic Enzymes are natural whole body anti-inflammatory, anti-fibrosis, blood cleansing, immune system modulating, and virus fighting.
Chronic inflammation is the leading cause of many body ailments and diseases. Systemic enzymes keep our immune system and inflammation responses in check and balanced. Systemic enzymes also help to break down scar tissue and fibrosis, and in turn help us to heal even faster while eliminating an over abundance of fibrin in the body.
These same enzymes assist the liver by helping to keep our blood clean of the toxins that a sluggish liver may be overloaded with. So in essence they take out the trash. Blood filled with toxins definitely isn’t healthy and can cause numerous health issues. Systemic enzymes will also adapt to what the body needs creating balance within the immune system while also eating away at foreign substances, viruses, or any dead material that will later be passed through the digestive system, our main source of elimination.
Systemic enzymes will definitely improve digestion, yet they work on balancing the entire body as a whole.
They are intended to be taken on an empty stomach inbetween meals. If taken with food, they will only act as a very expensive digestive enzyme. Please note that systemic enzymes are not to be used if you are taking blood thinners or are a hemophiliac without direct medical supervision.
Systemic enzymes have been key for me for healing from dance injuries and soreness, healing scar tissue faster, improving my gut health, and keeping my immune system from being overactive. I’ve taken various brands of systemic enzymes and currently Wobenzym N by Garden of Life is my go-to as well as the very first systemic enzyme I ever tried. I haven’t found a cheaper version that is as effective.
Lastly this summer I have been preparing to work towards my goals of designing a zero waste household. Although I do intend to recycle, I am definitely planning to minimize my plastic consumption in general as recycling is not the answer to environmental crisis. With that said Wobenzyme N is one of the items that I will continue to use despite the plastic recyclable bottle that it comes in. Maybe writing a letter to the company about the packaging would be a more proactive step instead. Read more on systemic enzymes here.
