Understanding Naturally Occurring Antioxidant Enzymes of the Body
There is an entire series of naturally occurring Metabolic enzymes that the body (human or animal) produces which are then responsible for a myriad of antioxidant processes
that need to occur within the body - such as removal of toxins that build up in tissues or cells, or clearing of free-radicals that are
constantly being created whenever energy is produced or used. Before we get into further explanation about these enzymes, a little more explanation may help clarify why certain other enzyme resources
can play a helpful role in this realm.
In humans, for example, the body of a young person regularly produces large quantities of its antioxidant enzymes. After the PEAK of a persons youth (age 25 to 30), the bodys' production of these enzymes will begin to decline - beginning the aging process. By age 50, for example, the body may only produce half the quantity that it did for a young person. This phenomenon can be a big factor in the aging process - as much of the aging process can be tied to free-radical damage or toxin buildup in the body. You have likely witnessed this just by noticing how some people age more rapidly than others - they likely need extra assistance with antioxidant enzyme production.
SUPPLY 'DIETARY' ENZYMES: AND THE BODY CREATES ANTIOXIDANT ENZYMES
The NZYMES® formula for 'live nutrition' supplements can play a key role in providing elements the body can use efficiently. Since the body's production of its own antioxidant enzymes slows with aging, any good resource - such as this form of 'live nutrition' - that can help the body boost production of its own enzymes can likely have a measurable affect on how well the body's metabolic mechanisms perform their critical tasks. Though the NZYMES® actually provide some of these enzymes as well, the major factor is what the body can produce as a result.
The NZYMES® Antioxidant products, by providing specially formulated and nutrient-rich food to the body - loaded with live dietary enzymes - thereby become the special resource that the body needs to produce the antioxidant enzymes (outlined in the next paragraph) that are responsible for important metabolic activities within the body. Understand this process, and you will then better understand the term 'Antioxidant' in referrence to the product labeling of the Granules, Treats, or Human Complex.
THE ANTIOXIDANT ENZYMES OF THE BODY
So, you should now have a better understanding of how 'antioxidant' applies with the NZYMES products - as they become a resource used by the body to manufacture a complete series of important metabolic (Antioxidant) enzymes, which include SuperOxide Dismutase (SOD) and counter parts of Catalase, Glutathione Peroxidase, and Methionine Reductase. These four enzymes then comprise the body’s primary antioxidant enzymes which perform a complex series of cleansing processes. As such, the N'ZYMES® Granules, Treats or Human Complex products become major contributors to the body's primary antioxidant support system.
REALM OF BENEFITS
Combined, all these factors help the body increase its ability to restore and repair, cleanse toxins and dangerous free radicals, and also strengthen or support the immune system. The same enzymes are also instrumental in providing proper metabolic management of the critical Synovial Fluid (see diagram) - maintaining proper levels, cleanliness and viscosity. This fluid is critical to proper joint operation, including spacing and lubrication, as it is the fluid that occupies the synovial membrane - where the spacing and lubrication provide the virtual 'gliding surface' for the joints. No matter what source of mobility issue a pet or person may experience, an improved bodily processes we're speaking of will normally result in greater range of motion, some natural abatement of discomfort, and subsequent enhanced mobility. Also, since the synovial fluid is an essential part of proper Lanolin levels for hair folicles, proper management of synovial fluid will produce healthier folicles, which can help reduce shedding problems in pets. What we typically see, in addition, is more shiney and luxurious coats.
What all this means, is that these simple 'live nutritional' supplements prove themselves effective at producing a better quality of life in almost every case - be it person or pet.
