Perhaps you've heard people talking about enzymes. Perhaps you know nothing about them. Perhaps you're already well-informed. Wherever you stand on the subject, I've got a little something that you might be interested in.
Myomend is one of my favorite products from Enzyme Science. Think of it as a replacement for your standard pain-killer, but made out of enzymes. No weird chemicals, no liver-eating side effects, just enzymes. The best thing about it: it works.
MyoMend offers a unique blend of vegetarian enzymes with benefits from the antioxidant properties of rutin. This high-potency enzyme blend includes plant enzymes bromelain and papain along with protease, serratiopeptidase, nattokinase and catalase enzymes. This combination of ingredients assists with capillary, tissue and muscle function, as well as promoting healthy inflammatory responses for cardiovascular well-being. MyoMend was formulated to work with the bodyís immune system for encouraging accelerated recovery and repair.
Capillary blood flow plays a major role in generating a healthy inflammatory response. The small blood vessels are responsible for carrying oxygen and nutrients to the cells while removing waste. After an injury, some of these capillaries may be damaged making them incapable of carrying fluid to and from damaged tissue. Symptoms like localized pain, swelling, redness, heat and loss of function may result. Research studies suggest proteolytic enzymes such as nattokinase and serratiopeptidase, support healthy circulation and speed recovery. Proteases may also contributed to the expulsion of harmful particles by stimulating phagocytes (cell that ingest foreign particles and debris) and accelerating elimination by way of the lymphatic system.
Fibrin is a protein in the blood produced in response to inflammation. This protein is essential to stop excess blood loss in the event of bodily trauma or injury. Excessive inflammation due to injury may encourage cross-linked fibrin to circulate through the bloodstream and stick to the walls of blood vessels. The nattokinase enzyme blend in MyoMend supports healthy circulation by breaking down fibrin and helping increase antioxidant activity. Nattokinase NSK-SD, sourced from the fermented soy bean product natto, has been the subject of 17 studies. Two small clinical trials associated with some studies showed results indicating a heightened ability to dissolved blood clots and promote healthy blood pressure.
Serratiopeptidase, like nattokinase, functions as a proteolytic and fibrinolytic enzyme. The enzyme offers support for healthy circulation by accelerating tissue repair to calm joint discomfort and maintain balanced secretion of interstitial fluid.
The tropical plant enzymes bromelain (from pineapple) and papain (from papaya) have an established history for supporting healthy inflammation, circulation, and recovery. Typically more active in an elevated temperature, these enzymes may be effective in supporting the body's immune system during inflammatory responses. Recent research indicates beneficial effects of tropical plant enzymes for joint health.
Rutin is an antioxidant found in various fruits and vegetables and from leaves of several plant species. Research also indicates the benefits of rutin in combination with bromelain for joint health.
While animal-based pancreatic enzymes are common, many doctors and patients seek out vegan or vegetarian enzyme options due to religious, moral, or dietary lifestyle choices.
Sooooooo, the next time your knee starts to hurt or you start to get a splitting headache, avoid those liver killing "other" meds and grab a bottle of Myomend instead. You'll be surprised at how effective it is.
