Enzymes Strike Infections Down
Proteolytic enzymes differ from digestive enzymes and if you haven’t considered taking either enzymes, you might want to rethink their importance. Here’s why, enzymes are a key component for regaining health – whenever our bodies are stressed, dealing with chronic disease or low immunity, or poor nutrition enzymes won’t function properly.
Exciting research is continuing on the benefits of enzymes in combatting infectious diseases. HealthCanal posted a recent article on how enzymes are scissor-like, where research is being conducted at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas.
“Our findings provide insight into severe bacterial infectious diseases, as well as some forms of cancer, in which the attachment of fat molecules to proteins is an essential feature of the disease process,” said Dr. Neal Alto, assistant professor of microbiology and senior author of the study in today’s print edition of Nature. The study’s first author is Nikolay Burnaevskiy, a graduate student in microbiology.
The research group discovered a scissor-like enzyme that specifically cuts off functionally-essential fatty acids from proteins.
In a health body, we have approximately 3000 enzymes, but there are roughly 7000 enzyme reactions that take place. Digestive enzymes work strictly with the pancreas and digestive system to breakdown food fats, proteins, and carbohydrates. Proteolytic enzymes work on a systemic level to breakdown pathogenic protiens and biofilms; supports immune system, joints, regulates body temperature, and works on muscle soreness especially after excercise. There are other enzymes that work in the body; such as, proteases and lipases that have vital roles too. The main purpose of this post is a focus on proteolytic enzymes.
I know of someone who is dealing with a terrible Lyme infection; but, after explaining the importance of enzymes they decided to try them because they had nothing to lose. After a short period of time, this person started to experience some improvements with experimental high doses and less herx reaction. The enzymes have made such a difference that they have vowed to take them for life! I have also taken these enzymes and noticed a difference in how my body functions.
Dr. Klinghardt, a leader in Lyme infections, states the effectiveness of three important proteolytic enzymes:
Regarding herx - This creates a toxic state in the body which produces symptoms like:
fever, muscle aches, chills, headaches, skin rashes, excess mucus production, brain fog, increased GI problems (diarrhea, constipation, etc.). These symptoms are often reported by many to feel very flu-like or cold-like. Your whole body is generally sluggish and it usually feels as if your body is working harder, almost fighting something.
Let’s look closer at each of these proteolytic systemic enzymes in understanding their importance because each one’s actions vary slightly. These three enzymes have been used to help with Lyme, parasite infections, and other infectious diseases.
Serrapeptase - An enzyme found in silk worm intestines was discovered and extracted. The digestive fluid dissolves the cocoon of silk worms. The extract is used along with a non-pathogenic baterium to create Serrapetase for neutraceutical purposes. The proteolytic enzyme is known for breaking down blood clots, mucus, toxins, fungus, pathogenic proteins, or cellular waste. Removes swelling, fluid retention, plus an anti-inflammatory. Reduces scars and cysts. It will dissolve dead tissue. Serrapetase is for pain reduction and taken along with other enzymes; such as, bromelain and papain. Protection against strokes and veinous problems, shrinks varicose veins.
Nattokinase - Its origins were discovered in Japan about a thousand years ago in forming Natto which is a natural process of soybean fermentation with an added bacterium. Nattokinase is recommended for cardiovascular use because it increases blood flow throughout the body; more specifically, it will assist in breaking down fibrin blood clots, reduce high blood pressure and thickening of the blood. Additionally, it is an antioxidant protector for LDL treatment. A raw brand manufactuer of Nattokinase will contain Vitamin K along with essential amino acids.
Lumbrokinase - This enzyme has been used successfully for decades in China’s hospitals. The proteolytic enzyme is comprised from the earthworm family, using six extracted enzymes to make up the compound for effectiveness. Lumbrokinase is recognized for its use in blood flow where there might be viscosity or hypercoagulation; anti-platelet and anti-thrombolytic activity. Many people who have used Lumbrokinase noted that it does a better job than the other enzymes at breaking down biofilms.

Last year I did posts about the benefits of digestive enzymes for infections that you may find helpful.
