Everybody Needs a Healthy Body
Elimination of potentially toxic substances from the body is a crucial part in the metabolic processes for optimal health. A variety of health issues can develop if toxins within the body impair enzyme function or availability or without a proper store of enzymes.
For instance, the immune system can be overwhelmed with bacteria, fungi, toxins and even food particles that don’t get completely digested in the gastro-intestinal tract. In many instances, proteins created by these distresses found within the body, which the body detects as foreign, can initiate an immune response. Recognized as antigens, the immune system produces antibodies to start the process of the proteins’ degradation and removal. After coupling with one another, these antigens and antibodies form circulating immune complexes (CICs), which induce attack and destruction by the immune system’s macrophages (white blood cells specifically designed to destroy CICs). This process is known as inflammation – the body’s natural healing mechanism
In cases where inflammation is prolonged or when CICs are predominant within the body’s tissues and organs, the body may not have enough enzyme potential to begin the next process of renewal and recovery. Moreover, research has demonstrated that a lack of proteolytic enzymes may not cause an adequate response to a large accumulation of CIC’s in the body.
Exclzyme® for Total Body Support
To address this problem, Exclzyme has been formulated with an ample supply of various proteases to facilitate the body’s immune defenses and breakdown free-roaming CICs that can keep the body in a constant state of discomfort.
Enteric-coated serrapeptase highlights this powerful mix of proteolytic enzymes with its scientifically proven fibrinolytic power 1 (to learn more about enteric coating used in AST Enzymes products, please click the "Compare" tab). Exclzyme also contains papain and bromelain, enzymes known for their potent systemic properties.
In addition to these systemic and digestive proteases, lipase and amylase also offer their own enzyme activity to bolster the body with extra catalytic energy, especially for the digestion of fats, sugar and protein complexes. And for extra synergy, Exclzyme is rounded with anti-oxidant support in the form of rutin and amla, herbs well known for their unique bioflavanoid content, especially useful for tissue rejuvenation and recovery.2 *The entire systemic enzyme blend is manufactured in a ISO 9001:2000 and GMP certified facilities using our Bioactive Protein Peptide System® (BPPS).
The Original Systemic Enzyme Formula
Exclzyme is a proven systemic enzyme therapy for overall health. A powerful blend of serrapeptase, proteases and herbs, Exclzyme supports the body’s response to imbalances, metabolic activity, blood, joints and circulation.
The Exclzyme formula has been used for more than a decade by thousands of people as a daily dietary supplement. In fact, you may have been using the original formula for years without knowing it (to learn more about Exclzyme vs. Vitalzym®, please click the "Compare" tab).**
AST Enzymes’ family of companies is among the largest manufacturers of enzymes in the world. For decades, we have supplied enzymes to marketing companies who have built their businesses on enzyme supplements our experts formulated and manufactured. The Exclzyme formulation has been commercially available since 1999 and is the most successful non-animal derived systemic enzyme blend on the market today.
For best results, begin enzyme regiment at a low dosage of 1 capsule three times a day. After three days, increase your Exclzyme dosage to 2 capsules three times a day. After the first week, doses should be adjusted to a therapeutic level of 3 or more capsules three times a day (amount is dependent upon desired benefit).
NOTE: It is important to continue therapeutic doses until results are realized. This should then be reduced to a maintenance dose of 1-3 capsules three times a day.
Complementing your Exclzyme with additional serrapeptase can increase proteolytic activity, as well as increase therapeutic benifits. Peptizyme-SP contains 80,000 units of professional-strength serrapeptase per capsule.

How can Exclzyme become even stronger?
Combining the intestinal cleansing power of Floracor-GI, which removes toxic material and food debris that is trapped in the intestinal villi, with an Exclzyme regiment can increase absorption and enhance the effectiveness of the systemic enzyme formula, while supporting a healthy gastro-intestinal tract.
