Altazyme Plus

Life could not exist without enzymes as they promote chemical reaction, cellular repair and growth. There have to date been over 2,700 enzymes that have been identified but many more remain to be discovered; they work in all areas and systems of the body.

One of the most important functions of vitamins and minerals is to provide co-enzymes; these in turn are the building blocks of enzymes. Often the symptoms of vitamin or mineral deficiency can be understood as enzyme deficiency.
There are three major groups of biological enzymes:
  • Food Enzymes,
  • Digestive Enzymes
  • Metabolic Enzymes.
In the past, the therapeutic use of enzymes has largely focused on the use of digestive enzymes; these aid digestion of food but also mop up and dissolve dead material such as proteins and fats that accumulate in the tissues, organs, arteries and all blood vessels in the body.  Research has shown that by combining a range of enzymes, with different actions, we can achieve greater, longer lasting, health benefits associated with the use of enzymes (as listed below). To this end we have formulated Altazyn
  • Clearing out old dead proteins from the body
  • Clearing the arteries
  • Removing fibrosis
  • Relieving auto-immune disorders
  • Digesting food
  • General rejuvenation
Two tablets of Altazym Plus contain:
  • Serrapeptase 40,000IU
  • Nattokinase 1,000FU
  • Protease 20,000HUT
  • Lipase 1,000LU
  • Amylase 4,000SKB
  • Cellulase 600ALV
  • Lactase 600CV

Primary Functions of the Ingredients

Serrapeptase is a proteolytic enzyme isolated from the micro-organism, Serratia E15. Histologic studies have revealed the powerful anti-inflammatory effects of this naturally occurring enzyme.  It has had wide clinical use, spanning over 30 years, throughout Europe and Asia. Full article

Nattokinase is a very potent fibrinolytic (breaks down fibrin, a blood clotting protein) enzyme, which has shown remarkable ability to affect blood clotting and a possible ability to regulate and activate various other metabolic enzymes. It is also the worlds number one food source of Vitamin K2, an essential but often forgotten vitamin. We strongly recommend a look at the Vitamin K article 

Protease is responsible for digesting proteins in your food.  Proteins are probably one of the most difficult substances to metabolize.  Because of this, protease is considered to be the most important plant based digestive enzyme that we have.  If the digestive process is incomplete, undigested protein can wind up in your circulatory system.  When you take protease in higher quantities, it can also help to clean up your body by removing the unwanted protein from your circulatory system and all other tissues and organs of the body.

Lipase is responsible for digesting fats in food.  When taken in higher quantities it will also find its way into the blood stream and help to remove excess fatty deposits from the inside of your veins and arteries.  When this occurs, the arteries and veins are more open and allow the blood to flow more smoothly throughout your body.  It is well understood that clogged arteries cause a rise in blood pressure, and that this in turn leads to heart problems.  Using extra lipase during the pre-digestive phase can help with overall fat control both in the stomach and in the arteries of your body.  Additional lipase can also be helpful in a weight management program, because it converts fat to energy instead of allowing it to be stored in your body.

Amylase is the second most important plant based digestive enzyme that we have.  Amylase is responsible for digesting carbohydrates in food.  Because of this, it could be considered a natural antihistamine.  Incomplete digestion of carbohydrates has been linked to blood sugar imbalances, allergies, and asthma.  Amylase is also very effective in helping to relieve the symptoms of allergic reactions to such things as insect bites, pollen irritation, or contact with poison oak, poison ivy, or sumac.  A possible reason why some people appear to be more immune to these poisons is because of a higher amount of amylase within their bodies.

Cellulase is responsible for breaking down fibre.  It is also an excellent antioxidant because it binds to heavy metals and other toxins and carries them out of your body.

Lactase is responsible for digesting the milk sugar found in dairy products.  Supplementing the diet with Lactase Enzyme makes milk products more readily digestible, helping to relieve discomfort caused by lactose intolerance.

Pectinase breaks down carbohydrates such as pectin (found in many plants); Pectinases are produced during the natural ripening process of some fruits to soften cell walls.

Alpha Galactosidase is derived from the fungus Aspergillus Niger, this enzyme hydrolyzes residues from saccharides which pass unabsorbed into the large intestine and can cause bloating, and general discomfort

Invertase exhibits relatively high activity over a broad range of pH. It hydrolyzes sucrose and is often lacking in those with a weak digestion

Malt Diastase hydrolyzes amylose and other polysaccharides, studies have shown it is useful for digestive support and general nutritional support, also breaks down unused glycogen in muscle tissue.

The Other Ingredients are, L-Arginine HCL, Vitamin C (as calcium ascorbite)  Green Tea Extract (as 99.2% Polyphenols), Alpha Liopic Acid, Grapeseed Extract , Natural Vitamin E and Coenzyme 10 to ensure a balanced formula and increase the body’s ability to make maximum use of the enzymes.  The Vitamin C and bioflavonoids act as anti-oxidants and to help to strengthen the collagen of the blood vessels, this is important as Altyzyme Pluss will clear out debris from the blood vessels. Vitamin C deficiency as well as silica deficiency renders the blood vessels weak, and liable to haemorrhage or rupture, especially as we age, so we need to protect them with these nutrients.

There is a very simple rule to follow with plant based digestive enzyme products....
The higher the activity level of the ingredients the better the product. Unlike most other nutritional ingredients that are measured by weight, the correct labelling for enzymes is in activity units.

The Health Benefits of Enzyme Therapy

Raw food contains enzymes required to help break down, assimilate and deliver the contents of the food we eat. When we cook food we ‘kill’ the sensitive ‘live’ enzymes. The only way we can then digest and absorb the food we eat is to produce our own enzymes instead (although bacteria do have a role lower down in the gut to help break down food and make it easier to assimilate). The ability to do this varies with each individual and also reduces with age. One of the single biggest factors in all chronic (long term) disease is the failure to produce the necessary enzymes required to replace those we lose by cooking food. The failure to produce sufficient protein digesting enzymes from the pancreas has been implicated as one of the major causes of cancer. Many naturopaths and those educated in the natural healing arts, recognise that the build up of muco-protein, i.e. mucus/catarrh in the system is a contributory factor in most chronic disease. The reason for this build up is a failure to sufficiently break down food especially the protein content. A raw food diet, or failing that the consumption of digestive enzymes with food can prevent this happening.
