"Revolutionary. The same powerful ingredients as the original Vitalzym, but in a gel cap form. We don’t know of any other vegetarian systemic enzyme that completely bypasses the stomach acids. This one can even be taken close to meals. Try them about 20 minutes before a meal for best enzyme absorption. These new capsules were launched last year and feedback has been tremendous."
Vegetarian - All Natural - Non-toxic - Non-GMO
Vitalzym Liquid-Filled Gel Capsules are protected by a technologically advanced enteric coated capsule that is used by today's most advanced pharmaceuticals. The all natural, non-toxic coating allows the enzymes to bypass the stomach acids so that they are 100% available in the small intestine. This delivery system is revolutionary to systemic enzyme blends, in that there is no loss of enzyme due to digestion or stomach acidity. Most users will experience at least double the enzyme potency of the original Vitalzym, whereas some users may experience an exponentially greater effect. The difference is dependent upon each user's pH levels and dosaging habits. If you are currently taking the original Vitalzym, World Nutrition recommends first trying to reduce your dosage by 50%.
Enteric Coated Liquid-Filled Capsule
The effectiveness of any systemic enzyme is determined by the amount of activity level in the bloodstream after the enzyme has been absorbed from the small intestine. Enzymes, whose activity is significantly reduced in an acidic environment, must be protected from it for their utmost effectiveness. Enzymes will begin to lose their activity once introduced into the low pH (1.0-3.0) acids of the stomach. The amount of activity loss is dependent upon the individual enzyme and the amount of time it spends in the stomach. Studies have shown that unprotected enzymes can lose up to 100% of their activity in fewer than 30 minutes in pH levels below 3.0. The only reliable method of ensuring that 100% of the enzymes are not destroyed by the stomach acids is to enteric-coat the enzymes. This Vitalzym blend has been formulated to use an enteric coated gel capsule manufactured under pharmaceutical-grade guidelines.*
Though revolutionary to nutritional enzyme blends, this enteric coating process is similar to that used in today’s most advanced products. The capsule has an all-natural shell barrier that allows it to withstand the extremely low pH levels found in the stomach. Once introduced to the pancreatic juices in the duodenum (upper small intestine), the shell barrier breaks down to release the enzymes it contains. The enzymes are then absorbed into the bloodstream through the lining of the small intestine.*
The enteric coated gel capsule has been designed to pass both the USP (United States Pharmacopeia) and JP (Japan Pharmacopeia) disintegration tests for enteric coated capsules. Every batch is tested to ensure it meets the agency guidelines before exportation to the U.S.*
Vitalzym is recommended by healthcare professionals worldwide. The unique blend of vegetarian enzymes, flavonoids, and antioxidants has been formulated for 100% absorption in the small intestine.*
Serrapeptase - A key ingredient in Vitalzym, was originally discovered in Japan and is commercially produced there for health applications. It has been used as a substitute for animal-derived enzymes, such as chymotrypsin, due to its stronger effect in terms of bradykinin-decomposing activity (a measurement of the enzyme activity level needed to degrade bradykinin, a protein found in the body that causes an inflammatory response).*
Protease - Any enzyme that catalyzes the splitting of proteins into smaller peptide fractions and amino acids by a process known as proteolysis.
Bromelain - An enzyme found in pineapples that breaks down other proteins, such as collagen and has anti-inflammatory properties.
Papain - A proteolytic enzyme obtained from unripe papaya.
Lipase - Lipase digests fat. It is an enzyme secreted in the digestive tract that catalyzes the breakdown of fats into individual fatty acids that can be absorbed into the bloodstream.
Amylase - Any of a group of proteins found in saliva and pancreatic
juice and parts of plants, Amylase digests carbohydrates and helps convert starch to sugar.
Amla - The world’s richest source of Vitamin C. It also contains tannic acid, glucose, protein, cellulose and calcium. Amla is considered to have restorative and preventive
Rutin - One of the many existing flavonoids. Flavonoids support health by strengthening capillaries and other connective tissue, and some function as anti-inflammatory, anti-histaminic, and antiviral agents.
Made in Japan
Vitalzym is regulated by the Pharmaceutical and Food Safety Bureau under the Ministry of Health, Labor, and Welfare in Japan. This agency is the Japanese equivalent of the FDA of the United States Department of Health and Human Services. Since Vitalzym is regulated in Japan, it must adhere to manufacturing requirements that are far more stringent than dietary supplements manufactured in the United States. Supplements manufactured in the United States are considered food grade, and thus, are not regulated as stringently as in Japan.
Quality control requirements of a licensed manufacturing facility in Japan are considered the most hygienic of any industry. Extreme measures are taken to avoid any possibility of contamination. Precautions include clean rooms, dust particle control, and sophisticated air filtration systems. During frequent site facility inspections, the government inspects all laboratory equipment and safety measures. Each inspection must be passed in order to retain the export licensure.
World Nutrition is also required to notify the Japanese Pharmaceutical and Food Safety Bureau of any variance to the registered ingredient blend. Any blend change would require a new registration for export. Every batch of product must be inspected before and after mixing to test adherence to the registered blend. In addition, every lot of raw materials received by our manufacturing facility must be tested independently of the supplier for safety, impurities, potency, and accuracy. These records must be disclosed upon facility inspections.
These Japanese manufacturing guidelines unique to the manufacturing of Vitalzym ensure that each and every capsule is of the utmost purity, potency and safety.*
This dosage recommendation is for most users. The dosage recommended by your healthcare professional may differ. As a dietary supplement, take 3 capsules daily with water. Your healthcare professional may also recommend a higher activation dosage.
Warning: If you are currently taking prescription drugs, consult your healthcare professional prior to use.
Systemic enzymes may help rid the body of toxins. Some users will experience a detoxification reaction to the enzymes, including short-term fatigue, nausea, fogginess, or headache. Though uncomfortable, this detoxification is beneficial to the body. Increased water intake can assist in the process, or reduced enzyme dosage will slow the rate of detoxification. If symptoms persist, contact your healthcare professional.*
Vitalzym Gel Caps are manufactured to have a 5-year shelf life with no loss of activity when properly stored in a cool, dry place with the lid tightly closed.*
