Suggested Use: To relieve muscle soreness and discomfort due to overexertion and exercise, take 2 tablets two to three times a day between meals. To support optimal digestion, take 2 tablets before each meal. If pregnant, nursing, or taking prescription drugs, consult your healthcare professional prior to use.
If pregnant, nursing, or taking prescription drugs, consult your healthcare practitioner prior to use. Do not exceed 12 tablets daily unless under the direction of a licensed healthcare practitioner.
How Does It Work?
Bio-Zyme is a high-potency pancreatic enzyme complex formulated to support healthy digestion of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins.† While other pancreatin products are often diluted with salt or lactose, Bio-Zyme contains a full-strength pancreatic extract for optimum digestive support.† Taken just before or with a meal, Bio-Zyme helps reduce gas, bloating and fullness after eating.† Taken between meals, the clinically studied formula helps relieve occasional muscle pain due to exercise and overuse.†
Each day, the pancreas produces up to 1.5 quarts of pancreatic juice, containing digestive enzymes to break down carbohydrates, fat and protein. These enzymes, including lipases, amylases, and proteases (i.e., trypsin, chymotrypsin and carboxypeptidase), are secreted by the pancreas into the small intestine.
Supplemental enzymes, particularly pancreatic digestive enzymes, have a long history of use as dietary supplements. In addition to digestive support, pancreatic enzymes have been recommended for immune system support, to support urinary tract health, lung health, and for the relief of occasional pain associated with exercise and overuse.†1
Bio-Zyme contains eight key enzymes, plus 10X strength pancreatic enzymes for maximum digestive support.†10X strength means this pancreatic enzyme complex is 10 times more potent than the minimum activity specified by the United States Pharmacopeia (USP).
The ingredients in Bio-Zyme systemic enzymes are buffered with bicarbonate. Normal pH of the stomach is 2 (acidic), while pancreatic juice is about 8 (basic). Bicarbonates assist in changing the acidic environment to an alkaline environment.
Bio-Zyme was tested in three clinical trials, demonstrating its benefits for relieving muscle pain associated with exercise and overuse.†2–4 In comparison with the placebo group, athletes taking Bio-Zyme before and after intense exercise had less muscle pain and faster recoveries.†2
