For over 60 years, Wobenzym® N has been a trusted name for enzyme supplementation. Developed by leading scientists and used by millions of people worldwide, Wobenzym® N is a systemic enzyme formulation that contains five clinically studied enzymes from both plants and animals, as well as the antioxidant rutin.
Hundreds of chemical reactions occur during the course of normal metabolic processes. Many chemical reactions require significant energy to take place, and therefore need a catalyst to lower the activation energy. In the body, enzymes play the role of the catalyst and allow reactions to take place that would otherwise not occur. The enzyme itself is not consumed in this process and can be utilized repeatedly. Enzymes are relatively unique to each reaction; different enzymes catalyze different reactions. Some enzymes are sensitive to changes in pH and temperature, and can be destroyed if exposed to less than ideal conditions.
Once absorbed in the small intestine, systemic enzyme supplements work directly in the body and are not intended to aid digestion. Consequently, these enzymes assist the body’s various regulatory and communications systems. Wobenzym® N helps to support healthy joints, including the relief of pain associated with osteoarthritis of the knee and hip, and ankle joint injury recuperation. Wobenzym® N tablets entericcoated to prevent dissolution in the stomach. This allows the enzymes to reach the small intestine, where absorption may occur.
