The Power Behind Enzymedica and Enzyme Science
Clean, sustainable, and effective. Three words Enzyme Science use to describe themselves, their products, and their mission as a company. Only pure ingredients are used in their products, and each batch is tested thoroughly to ensure potency and effectiveness. Additionally, they make efforts to keep their manufacturing processes as clean and earth-friendly as possible. By applying sustainability and green standards to their business practices, these two supplement giants have the ability to make an impact on the clinical supplement as well as the natural health world. Both supplement manufacturers create and ship out their products from the United States and are based in Florida.
Philanthropy and preservation of the environment are both important aspects of Enzyme Science and Enzymedica’s business model. Organizations that they contribute to are: It's Who We Are, Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium, Vitamin Angels, Autism Hope Alliance, Safe Place and Rape Crisis Center, Beagle Freedom Project, Bless the Children, and American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
Enzyme Science has been the winner of multiple awards. These include Better Nutrition’s Best Supplements Award winner as well as awards given by the Nutrition Business Journal and WholeFoods Magazine. Enzymedica has also won awards in these categories.
Enzyme Science vs. Enzymedica?
These two company titles are used interchangeably on many occasions. They may seem like two separate companies, but they are very connected under the same metaphorical business umbrella. Enzymedica is the parent company, and Enzyme Science is a division that was brought to fruition in 2011. Enzyme Science was created to provide an exclusive brand of formulas for healthcare practitioners, according to an article posted in Chiropractic Economics.
What are enzymes?
Enzymes are made in your body and are also found in raw foods that you eat. Enzymes are needed for almost every cellular process. They are proteins that are known as catalysts. They start and speed up chemical processes in your body. Digestive enzymes are made and released from your pancreas when you eat. Digestive enzymes supplements are taken food so that can break down your meal into smaller molecules. Systemic enzyme supplements are taken on an empty stomach so their action will occur in your bloodstream or body tissues.
Apple Cider Vinegar Capsules
Apple Cider Vinegar is a traditional remedy that has been used since 400 BC during Hippocrates’ time. He prescribed Apple Cider Vinegar for a variety of colds and illnesses. Today, Apple Cider Vinegar Capsules are used to support digestion, weight management, and blood sugar. While Apple Cider Vinegar can have a strong, and sometimes offending, smell and taste, Enzymedica’s formula does not have a bad taste and are easy to swallow small capsules.
The most important ingredient in this formula is the organic quality of the apples used. Unlike other apple cider supplements, Enzymedica uses 10 real apples that are pressed and fermented.
Activated Coconut Charcoal Powder
For thousands of years, the coconut has been used in cultures for health benefits, as well as global trading. Coconuts evoke an image of a sunny paradise vacation, maybe it’s Hawaii or maybe it’s a foreign location like the Philippines or Thailand. The coconut shell is an important part of how this product is created. Indonesia was the largest exporter of coconuts worldwide in 2018, with 290,000 metric tons. With the average coconut weighing at approximately 1.5 pounds, Indonesia exported nearly 426,227,040 coconuts!
The primary benefits of this Activated Coconut Charcoal Powder are natural detoxification and alleviation of occasional gas/bloating. Now, you may be wondering: how is coconut related to bloating? Activated coconut uses their millions of tiny pores to absorb toxins and safely and naturally transport them out of your body. The pores from activated charcoal are formed when heat is applied. This heat source also applies to the coconut. Did you know that activated coconut shell charcoal can also be used in air purification? This is a vegan-friendly formula that is created without dairy, gluten, and soy. Also, it is non-GMO!
This is likely one the messiest supplements you might take, but also one of the most versatile. Charcoal is a remedy for everything from food poisoning to diarrhea. It can also be used to whiten your teeth. Charcoal is effective at mopping up just about any toxin that is causing your symptoms. I have used charcoal as part of my wellness regime for years. I usually rotate different binders to keep my gut and body detoxified.
Binders refers to anything that binds to a toxin and takes it out of your body. Fiber is a natural binder that helps to clear your colon. But sometimes, fiber isn’t enough to clear the amount and types of toxins in your body. In the case of CIRS, or mold exposure illness, the toxins that need to be excreted are best captured by charcoal or clay binders.
Enzyme Defense Extra Strength
Our immune systems are constantly on the defense, protecting us from environmental threats and pathogens. From pollution to illness, our immune system works hard 24/7 to be on the offense and the defense. Proteolytic enzymes are the ones that break down proteins. From cleaning skin wounds to helping with digestion, these enzymes are powerful ways to protect your body.
These enzymes can help reduce symptoms of low enzyme counts like bloating, gas, cramps following a meal, and unintended weight loss. Two of the best food sources of these enzymes are papaya and pineapple. However, there are supplements that can increase and support the presence of proteolytic enzymes in the body, like this Enzyme Defense Extra Strength formula.
One of the most important ingredients in this formula by Enzymedica is their Protease Therablend. In 1998, Enzymedica introduced Therablend to the world. Therablend is an innovative way to bring multiple strains of enzymes together in one ingredient. Protease Therablend is meant to break down proteins and has no less than three strains of protease. One of its main goals is to support the function and strength of the immune system.
Immune Max Black Elderberry with Vitamins C & D3 + Zinc
This Immune Max formula includes ingredients that have been proven to be important in boosting immune health and overall wellbeing. This formula is representative of the saying, “kill two birds with one stone.” So many benefits in one capsule? You better believe it!
The first beneficial ingredient comes from Europe - the Haschberg Elderberry. Usually found in Germany and Austria, this fruit is produced in abundance in orchards and creates large clusters of berries. Rich in a flavonoid called anthocyanin, this strain of elderberry is full of antioxidants and vitamins, minerals, and trace elements. As described in a small study in 2004, elderberries can help alleviate symptoms of influenza A and B infections. Over 1000 studies show the immune benefits of elderberry.
The next key ingredients are Vitamins C and D3. As I’ve described in other blog posts, these vitamins are essential to our immune health as well as physical, emotional, and mental health. The last ingredient that I wanted to make note of is zinc picolinate. Zinc supplements in general have immune-boosting capabilities. Because zinc can’t be stored in excess in the body, it must be obtained from one’s diet, whether it be through food or supplements.
MucoStop is considered a systemic enzyme supplement. It must be taken on an empty stomach or the enzymes power will be used to digest food as opposed to getting into your bloodstream. I recommend 2 capsules on empty stomach up to 3 times per day. MucoStop contains the enzyme mucolase, which digests and breaks down mucus. MucoStop is a great non-drowsy alternative to over-the-counter allergy or cold medications. It can also be used for the congestion and post nasal drip that accompany seasonal allergies.
