scientists and used by millions of people worldwide, Wobenzym® N has proven to be a safe and useful
In the human body, hundreds of chemical reactions occur during the course of normal metabolic processes.
Many chemical reactions require significant energy in order to take place, and therefore need a catalyst to
allow the reaction to proceed. The catalyst acts to lower the energy needed for the reaction to move forward. In
the body, enzymes play the role of the catalyst and allow reactions to take place that otherwise would not
occur. The enzyme itself is not consumed in this process and can be utilized again and again. Enzymes are
relatively unique to each reaction and different enzymes will catalyze different reactions. Structurally, enzymes
are complex molecules that are comprised of amino acid chains and can sometimes include co-factors which
assist the enzyme in the chemical reaction. Some enzymes are sensitive to changes in pH and temperature
and can be destroyed if exposed to less than ideal conditions.
Wobenzym® N is a systemic enzyme formulation that contains enzymes from both plants and animals that
haves been clinically studied for supporting numerous processes in the body. Systemic enzyme supplements
work directly in the body once they are absorbed in the small intestine, and are not intended to aid in digestion.
Consequently, these enzymes can be utilized to assist the body’s various regulatory and communications
systems. Wobenzym® N can help to support healthy joints and muscles, support healthy circulation, support
the immune system, and also can help support processes that are involved in healthy aging.† Wobenzym® N
tablets are enteric coated to ensure that the enzymes are protected and are not broken down in the stomach.
This allows the enzymes to reach the small intestine where absorption may occur.
