Heal Injuries Faster with Systemic Enzyme Complex

Heal Injuries Faster with Systemic Enzyme Complex

Pure Encapsulation’s Systemic Enzyme Complex contains specific enzymes that work to enhance muscle tissue recovery and limit joint pain.

Known as proteolytic enyzmes, these nutrients help break down inflammatory proteins that are released by the immune system in response to injury.  Taking enzymes after a hard effort, or after you’ve sustained an injury will help to speed up the repair and limit pain.

Best Uses for Systemic Enzyme Complex:

  • Tendonitis
  • Muscle strains
  • Ligament sprains
  • Tendonitis
  • Overuse injuries
  • Bursitis
  • Delayed onset muscle soreness
  • Rapid healing of tissue injuries (cuts, bruises, abrasions)
  • Pain from injuries

Here's How Systemic Enzyme Complex Works:

When you sustain an injury - whether its something like a fall, cut, overuse injury or even wear and tear from a hard workout or race, your body releases pro-inflammatory chemicals to help repair the injured area.

Initially, these chemicals do their job by bringing inflammatory factors to the injured area - this results in the familiar pain, swelling, redness, warmth and limited mobility where the injury occurred.

But after the initial response, these chemicals can hang around for too long and hold up the healing process. 

Fortunately, we’ve been able to concentrate some of Mother Nature’s most effective natural compounds that speed up tissue and injury repair in the body.

Proteolytic enzymes will degrade pro-inflammatory compounds at the site of an injury, lessening the localized inflammation that can last for weeks after.

This is an important difference from non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like ibuprofen - these drugs do nothing really to speed tissue healing - they only block the pain associated with the injury. And of course they come with significant side effects like gut bleeding! 

Rather, enzymes will clean up the mess and slowly but surely reduce the inflammatory burden at the area.

Taking enzymes after an injury can dramatically speed healing and recovery - remember enzymes can also help your body get over an intense workout or race where you feel sore afterwords.

The only caveat with taking Systemic Enzyme Complex is that you do so on an empty stomach - if taken with food, the enzymes will be used to digest food, rather than be absorbed systemically to work on those injured areas!

Give it a try - your body will be happy you did!
