- Helps Support Blood Vessel and Cardiovascular Health
Octozyme, a comprehensive multi-enzyme formula, helps support normal blood circulation and vessel function, and maintains normal inflammatory balance. It also promotes recovery from exercise and physical stress by supporting the breakdown of unwanted proteins, aiding the body’s natural repair processes. For a normal recovery process, Octozyme has applications for a broad range of health needs. VOctozyme’s enzyme blend includes, protease, amylase, papain, trypsin, lipase, chymotrypsin, bromelain and peptidase enzymes, along with quercetin and rutin, two well-known flavonoids.
Enzymes are complex proteins that catalyze metabolic reactions throughout the body, and sufficient levels are required for optimizing many of the body’s functions. Although the body produces its own supply of enzymes, the amount produced can vary from person to person and is affected by age, diet, biochemistry and stress. Enzymes fall into three broad categories: metabolic enzymes, manufactured by cells to carry out various functions; digestive enzymes, primarily manufactured by the pancreas to digest foods and absorb nutrients and food enzymes; and exogenous (from outside the body) enzymes from plants and animals, also necessary for aiding and accelerating digestion. Systemic enzymes support the breakdown of unneeded proteins, which research has shown to be an important component of cardiovascular health and supporting optimal blood vessel function. In cases of soft tissue discomfort from post-exercise pain, systemic enzymes help break down fibrin to support areas of inflammation and reduce recovery times. Research has shown that proteolytic enzymes are well-absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract into the systemic circulation.

Studies have highlighted the efficacy of systemic enzyme therapy for a variety of uses, including maintaining normal inflammatory balance, nasal passage health, bronchial health, musculoskeletal health and exercise-related recovery. Research has also shown that flavonoids, such as rutin and quercetin, maintain normal inflammatory balance.
Strong peptidase enzymes have been used in both Japan and Europe for maintaining normal inflammatory balance since the early 1980’s, with systematic reviews supporting their beneficial role in lowering the release of harmful amines in various tissues, balance the bodies systemic inflammatory burden, as well as supporting the breakdown of unwanted proteins without affecting healthy tissues.
