Proteolytic Enzymes have been used for more than 40 years in European countries for promoting health in muscles, joints , circulatory, and immune system.
These enteric coated enzymes work ‘systemically’ because they are absorbed intact into the small
intestine and transported through the blood stream degrading inflammatory mediators (proteins) that contribute to
joint pain and soft tissue inflammation.
Most athletes in Contact Sports take 4 to 8 tablets 1 hour before practice and another 4 to 8 tablets immediately
after practice. Always take at least 1 B12 Nitro per day when using XtraEnZymes.
One (1) tablet Three (3) times a day as a dietary supplement or as otherwise recommended by your healthcare professional.

• Other Studies
Recovery from exercise: when systemic enzymes are absorbed intact they travel through the blood stream digesting ‘cell debris’ created during intense exercise. Examples of cell debris include damaged/dead tissue and inflammatory-immune complexes.
Reduce Inflammation and tissue destruction after exercise: Olympic teams from around the world have used systemic enzymes to enhance recovery from muscle and joint pain after strenuous competition. Multiple studies have been conducted over the years on elite athletes of all types, from runners to boxers, have demonstrated that proteolytic enzymes lead to enhanced recovery from exercise.
Supports Healthy Cardiovascular System: systemic enzymes have been shown to break up fibrin, which may reduce the incidence of blood clot formation. Dr. Edward Howell lists several studies in his seminal book “Enzyme Nutrition” regarding the beneficial uses of lipase and other proteolytic enzymes in the maintenance of healthy vasculature, and possibly decreasing plaque formation.

We do NOT use plastic coatings.
XCP Research does not now or ever will use plasticizers as enteric coatings.
XCP uses a food glaze that is obtained from tree sap which contains natural polymers.
XCP Research began over ten years ago warning doctors about the danger of phthalates and now many watch dog agencies are also warning about them.
By definition an enteric coating is a coating that is acid resistant. Enteric coatings are used by many pharmaceutical companies (big pharma) and manufacturers of proteolytic enzymes. If correctly applied, the enteric coating will allow the drug/proteolytic enzyme to be acid resistant for a predetermined period of time (the stomach) and dissolve in an alkaline medium (the small intestine).
To achieve this, many of the pharmaceutical companies and one or more of the supplement manufacturers use enteric coatings that are essentially plastic and most of these contain phthalates. Want to know more about phthalates, do a web search with your key word phthalates.
You will find an ever expanding list of negative health effects including bad effects to the male reproductive system and low sperm counts.
We advise you to take the proteolitic enzymes (Intenzyme Forte) on an empty stomach with a glass of water. In this instance the pyloric valve is not completely closed and in almost every case, the proteolitic enzyme will pass through the stomach in less than 15 minutes and dissolve in the small intestine.
The food glaze contains no plasticizers, is soluble in an alkaline pH (the small intestine) and will dissolve upon continuous agitation.
Studies in Europe have demonstrated that systemic enzymes increase the absorption rate of Whey Protein.
