Assuring optimal protein digestion and proper blood flow is necessary for effective nutrient delivery, a healthy immune response, and detoxification. Protease enzymes are therefore a must. This formula is uniquely designed with protease to promote systemic balance.*
Protease Enzymes. The proteolytic activity in PureZyme™ assists the body in maximum digestion of nutrients, production of energy, and aid in immune support.*
Gentle Formula. PureZyme™ is formulated with calcium for improved tolerance on an empty stomach and includes a smaller but equally effective protease activity per capsule compared to Transformation's Professional Protocol Protease™ for those who need a more gradual introduction to the benefits of proteolytic enzymes.*
Protein Digestion. May be taken with meals for additional support with digesting proteins.* For those who have difficulty swallowing capsules, PureZyme™ may be pulled apart and mixed in a small amount of tepid water and/or with the first bite of food.
Health Benefits: Transformation’s PureZyme™ is well-tolerated, GI and pH stable proteolytic enzymes designed for natural support of the cardiovascular system for supporting muscular health, immune system health, urinary health, and healthy elimination.*
I take PureZyme every day, and have for several years, but I mostly took it for my body type with food. Dr. DicQie Fuller's book, The Healing Power of Enzymes presents one of the first body-type approaches to nutrition in the field. Dr. Fuller noted that the way a body stores fat or not, and where was a signal of certain enzyme needs or chronic deficiencies. By taking a simple survey, a body type can be determined and the deficiency corrected.
When I initially began this enzyme regimen I lost 30 pounds and kept it off, and have continued using the PureZyme with my meals. However, that is not the subject of this essay. Instead, it is using PureZyme between meals and/or during fasting.
When PureZyme (a high dose of the enzyme protease) is used between meals or for fasting, the protease enters the blood stream instead of remaining in the digestive tract to digest the food immediately consumed. Protease in the blood stream does two remarkable things: 1. It breaks down bacteria, viruses and other protein-based debris floating around the cardiovascular system, and 2. It reduces inflammation wherever it goes. Inflammation in the body has been found to be caused by undigested particles of food, fauna, and abnormal cells stimulating the immune system into an immune response. It is the primary cause of arthritis, gout, and many other auto-immune disorders.
I bring this up because I had rather overlooked this property of PureZyme and recently applied it to great result.
I decided to start doing intermittent fasting--where I'm basically eating two meals: One, late in the afternoon made up of vegetable juices and/or avocado, or a protein shake and, two, a regular-sized meal before bedtime. This means that from the time I finish the last meal until I begin the late-afternoon meal, I've spent 16-18 hours fasting.
There is a lot of recent scientific study on this mode of eating, but I'm finding it works well for me. By adding in the PureZyme during the fasting period, those nagging aches and pains we usually attribute to "age" subside, and my yoga practice has become much deeper and less painful.
Intermittent fasting in this way de-stresses the liver and kidneys so they can more thoroughly do the work of ridding the body of toxins, plus it increases the natural oxygen level of the body, tending to alkalize it.
Using PureZyme to amplify the fasting effects, amplifies the benefits, too, and is well worth the extra dosages. With food, it is recommended to take 2-3 caps per meal. Using it for fasting, it is recommended to take 3-4 every 3 hours. Check it out!
