The goal with systemic enzymes is to create a healthy blood flow by removing the excess fibrin which forms in the tissues, blood and throughout the body as we age - noticeably in our 40’s and 50’s since our natural production of enzymes decreases. Also for those of us who's digestion is not working optimally there may be large particles of protein floating in the blood, and systemic enzymes can break these down small enough to be filtered out. Fibrin and debris in the blood can clog arteries, and lead to inflammatory conditions such as chronic pain, chronic fatigue, cardiovascular issues, autoimmune disorders, sclerosis and inflamed joints etc. This is the reason many adults are put on blood thinning medications.
Obviously it is not helpful if we are also eating the Standard American Diet; but in any case top quality systemic enzymes such as Neprinol can be very beneficial.
We have recently switched from Vitalzym to Neprionol which contains 10 times more active ingredients such as:
Nattokinase and Serrapeptase - These break down fibrin and are the most potent fibrin-degrading enzymes helping to reduce blood clots, unclump platelets and digest scar tissue.
Bromelain - Also helps reduce fibrin and increases the conversion of plasminogen into plasmin; but does not dissolve fibrin clumps that have already formed.
As the blood begins to thicken with age, our blood pressure can increase putting a strain on our arteries. Reducing the concentration of fibrinogen in the blood can lead to the reduction of arterial plaque and blood clots.
For this reason keeping our blood clean is vitally important to take the strain off the arteries and to improve circulation into the very tiny capillaries so that all the vitamins, minerals, stem cells and nourishment can more easily reach tissues needing healing and repair.
NOTE: Consult your healthcare professional before taking Neprinol or systemic enzymes if you are a hemophiliac or on drugs for blood coagulation such as prescription blood thinners i.e. Coumadin and Heparin, and others, because the enzymes in Neprinol can cause the drugs to work better and your medications might thin the blood too much.
Consult your physician if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
My Personal Experience
I have used a synergistic blend of systemic enzymes for 10 years now ever since I had my blood viewed live under a microscope. The clumping platelets and fibrin build up was quite significant and I was only 45 years old at that time with a diagnosis of pre-cancer of the liver. I started with many supplements including systemic enzymes to digest the debris and fibrin in my blood. Two months later, the microscopic view of my blood was significantly improved and I no longer had the pre-cancerous condtion. I did take triple the dosage of systemic enzymes at first to speed up the serious conditions I had at the time. My holistic medical doctor and I agreed upon this higher dosage as I was on the fast track to heal a very ill body as I had been suffering with chronic fatigue, systemic candida and significant body pain for over twenty years. All a memory now !
I remember how revealing it was viewing my blood under that microscope as my doctor showed me the excess clumping of platelets, oxidative stress and the significant increase in fibrin tissue. As my blood values improved, symptoms were alleviated and I lowered the dosages of systemic enzymes.
Keeping The Blood Clean
I still continue to have my blood viewed every so often with the dark field analysis. Two winters ago I chose to stop the systemic enzymes and 6 months later the microscope revealed my platelets were beginning to clump slightly, so I have chosen to stay on a daily regime of a low dosage, 4 capsules in the early am. I am currently 55 years old and this is often needed at this age to maintain healthy fibrin levels.
Excess fibrin develops as we age. We are born with a finite amount of enzymes which digest and dissolve the fibrin naturally. If we have lived our life eating mostly plants (fruits and vegetables which contain rich sources of enzymes), and little animal products, we may have adequate enzymes to last us our entire lifetime.
Since most of us have lived on cooked and processed foods, the enzymes we were born with have been used up by our late 20’s. As we age the body’s ability to manufacture enzymes diminishes. However, when we consume raw plants and algae, these naturally contain enzymes to digest our meals which will support keeping the blood cleaner.
Clogged Arteries and Capillaries Sclerosis or Fibrosis Oxidative stress Inflammation
The first thing systemic enzymes offer is the digestion of fibrin that may help with sclerosis or fibrosis which is hardening of bodily tissues and organs, clogged arteries and capillaries, oxidative stress, sticky platelets which often develop into pain and inflammation in the body. The goal is to improve blood viscosity so it more resembles a clear running brook as opposed to a swamp.
Nattokinase is one of these fibrin digesting enzymes derived from fermented soybeans enhancing the body’s ability to dissolve blood clots and maintain blood viscosity and cardiovascular health. Serrapeptase is a protein-degrading enzyme derived from a species of bacteria known as Serratia Mercesans originally found in the intestines of silkworms and is a major enzyme with an anti-coagulating function necessary to dissolve arterial plaque and fibrin, breaking down blood clots as well. These two combined work remarkably well in a synergistic blend of bromelain, protease and lipase.
Why is Neprinol More Effective than other brands?
Neprinol starts off with at least 10 times more of these fibrinolytic enzymes than any other
brand we have looked at. Two of these enzymes are nattokinase and serrapeptase.
Neprinol contains a potent synergistic blend of…
Serrapeptase- breaks down blood clots and arterial plaque
Nattokinase- maintains blood viscosity and cardiovascular health
Lipase- digests fat in the blood stream and converts it to energy
Protease- supports a healthy immune system
Amla- maintains normal acid and pH balance in nerves, brain and hair tonic
Papain- expedites healing of bruises and tissue injuries
Bromelain- helps maintain healthy skin
Rutin- builds strong capillaries and connective tissue
Many systemic enzymes have very little serrapeptase and nattokinase in them and
these ingredients should be at the top of the ingredient list.
Systemic Enzymes are used for ~
Digesting debris from the cardiovascular system
Reducing chronic Pain
Arthritis – Fibromyalgia
Cleaning debris in the blood
Clogged arteries – poor blood circulation
Post – Operative Scarring
Fibrosis of organs
What Else Can I do To Cleanse My Blood?
Plants naturally contain enzymes. When we eat them, they digest easily because they contain their own enzymes. When we eat raw vegetables and some fruits, the digestive organs i.e. liver, gall bladder, kidneys and intestines are not put under stress as they are when we eat meat, poultry, dairy and the like. This is why eating more vegetarian meals is recommended.
How much to use is a personal decision. Depending on age and health conditions everyone’s dosing is a little bit different. Consider discussing the following with your healthcare expert.
For some people, starting with 3 capsules 3x per day or 5 capsules 3x a day, for one or two months (depending on the recommendation of your nutritional consultant) has been quite effective to reduce the fibrin tissue and clean the blood and unstick the platelets. Once symptoms improve dosages are reduced and eventually as low as a few capsules daily are taken for maintenance.
Other people choose to start slowly with 2 capsules 2x a day and then build up to higher dosages. The older generation usually have more cardiovascular issues and more fibrin and debris in the blood especially those who have been eating sugary diets, animal based diets and less raw fruits and vegetables.
