If you want a great natural way to reduce pain and inflammation (back pain, joint pain, muscle soreness, etc), without resorting to dangerous drugs, the answer may lie in Systemic Proteolytic Enzymes.
Proteolytic enzymes, also referred to as “proteases,” are enzymes that break down proteins into their smallest elements. If this breakdown of proteins happens in our gut, we call the enzymes “digestive,” because they help us digest our food. Systemic proteolytic enzymes, however, will pass through the stomach or intestine lining and enter the circulatory system. This is why they are called “systemic” – once they enter the circulatory system, they circulate throughout the body.
The most important thing that systemic proteolytic enzymes do is to break down excess fibrin in your circulatory system and in other connective tissue, such as your muscles. Fibrin is an insoluble protein that is produced in response to bleeding and is the major component of the blood. These enzymes bring nutrients and oxygen-rich blood that remove the metabolic waste produced by inflammation and excess fibrin.
Excess fibrin throughout your circulatory system will severely limit the amount of blood flow to areas that need it the most. Body tries to compensate for this restriction by forcing the heart to work harder and increasing your blood pressure.
Some possible indicators of excess fibrin in your system include: chronic fatigue, slow healing, inflammation and pain, and elevated blood pressure.
The medical community has long known that excess fibrin presents a cardiac and stroke risk. Finally, they have acknowledged a link between excess fibrin and chronic systemic inflammation, the true root cause of virtually every disease and painful condition known to man.
Risks associated with high fibrin in our blood
Excessive fibrin, which causes a reduction in blood flow, can lead to
*High Blood Pressure
*Strains and Sprains
*Post-operative Scar Tissue
Very few pain killers help heal the body, and in most cases the side effects are rather unpleasant. On the other hand, systemic proteolytic enzymes support the body’s ability to heal itself, and they reduce the signs and symptoms of a chronic condition.
Natural sources of Systemic Proteolytic Enzymes
Bromelain – This special natural compound, which is extracted from pineapple, contains several proteolytic enzymes.
Papain – It is extracted from green papaya, and contains a wide range of proteolytic enzymes and works by breaking down proteins.
Serrazime: Serrazime is a proteolytic enzyme which is derived from edible fungi like Aspergillus oryzae and Aspergillus melleus.
Ayurvedic Natural Pain killers
Ayurvedic herbs like Shallaki (Boswellia Serrata), Nirgundi (Vitex Negundo), Rasna (Alpinia Galanga), Garlic, Ginger, Turmeric, etc have been used for centuries to treat pain due to their powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties, besides their property of supporting healthy blood circulation and controlling the viscosity of our blood.
