Our immune systems regularly encounter environmental invaders such as viruses‚ bacteria‚ fungus‚ chemical pollution‚ and environmental toxicity. Maintaining an adequate immune system to elicit a healthy immune response is essential. Enzyme Defense contains a high potency proteolytic enzyme blend formulated with vitamin D3‚ L-lysine‚ and trace minerals to support and promote healthy immune function.Enzymes are responsible for catalyzing and regulating biochemical reactions that occur within the human body. Specifically,‚ enzymes are highly involved in regulating the body's digestive and metabolic processes‚ thus making them essential for cellular function and overall wellness. In particular‚ proteolytic enzymes‚ also known as proteases‚ are responsible for supporting digestion and metabolism by breaking down protein. Supplemental proteolytic enzymes have an established history of use for supporting immunity and promoting general wellbeing.
Nattokinase NSK-SD has been known to support healthy circulation as a result of its high fibrinolytic (breaks down fibrin) and antioxidant activity. Similarly,‚ serratiopeptidase works to support vascular health through improved circulation‚ tissue repair‚ and anti-edema qualities.
Enzyme Defense also includes Vitamin D3‚ well-studied for its support of healthy cardiovascular function and immunity. Considered the natural form of vitamin D‚ D3 is also synthesized in the skin in response to exposure to the sun's ultraviolet rays. Research indicates that low levels of Vitamin D may be associated with increased risk for respiratory illness‚, therefore, supplementation is encouraged to promote seasonal well-being.
Critical to the synergy of the Enzyme Defense formula is the addition of L-lysine‚ an essential amino acid which must be obtained from food and supplements. Lysine is a building block for proteins‚ and as a result, it plays an important role in maintaining proper growth and repair. Lysine aids the body's recovery from injury and illness‚ and supports seasonal wellness and a healthy immune response. Some research suggests that regular lysine supplementation may prevent the outbreak of cold sores and herpes simplex.
