Muscular Skeletal Health

Muscular skeletal disorders bring discomfort to everyday life. When discomfort becomes prolonged, it manifests into chronic conditions. Severe Muscular and Skeletal Conditions often include chronic discomfort throughout the body. Without taking action right away seemingly simple day to day tasks become overwhelmingly painful and difficult. The muscles and soft tissue tend to experience extreme discomfort, muscle ache, fatigue, and tender or trigger points. Living with chronic muscular skeletal conditions bring daily challenges, including:

  • Overall body discomfort
  • Difficult mobility
  • Psychological stress
  • Digestive issues
  • Exercise Intolerance

Systemic Enzyme therapy has become a crucial factor in supporting muscular skeletal and nerve conditions. Supplementing your body with these naturally occurring enzymes is necessary to support your body back to health.* Staying as healthy as possible with the use of systemic enzymes is essential to improving the quality of life.

Many times when a system in our body malfunctions, we look for the first source of immediate relief. This is usually a pain reliever such as aspirin or a visit to the doctor’s office that lands with more prescription medication. The hidden dangers of prescription medication is that they do more harm than good. Naturally occurring systemic enzymes provide a non-invasive, natural and effective choice without the negative side effects. 

The Purpose of Enzymes

Enzymes are found in every cell of every living human. Enzymes are catalysts that either begin a chemical reaction or cause a reaction to speed up. Approximately 3,000 enzymes have been identified in the human body so far. As we age, our bodies may not produce adequate amounts of enzymes needed to sustain our bodily functions. By supplementing enzymes to our bodies, they help regulate all functions of the body such as your metabolism, breathing, and even our heart rate. It is imperative for us to supplement with necessary enzymes to prevent havoc. Without enzymes, life would not exist.

Systemic Enzyme Therapy

Excellacor & Serrapeptase 80,000 SPU

Excellacor supports the body’s overall metabolic health, and muscle & joint health.* For typical muscular skeletal issues Excellacor alone often would suffice. However, for the more serious and unforgiving muscular skeletal conditions pairing Excellacor with an added dose of Serrapeptase is important. The added dose of Serrapeptase supports respiratory health, muscle, joint, and tissue health.* When the combination of Excellacor and Serrapeptase are taken together the enzymes produce a synergistic effect and amplify the beneficial properties of both enzymes collectively. This provides the patient with the most aggressive tactic to address the conditions and perhaps, most effectively.

Excellacor and Serrapeptase 80,000 SPU contain enteric-coated serrapeptase. The enteric coated allows enzymes to bypass the acidic environment of the stomach and reach the small intestine, where absorption occurs. This is a key factor to determine the efficiency of any systemic enzyme. Our enteric-coated serrapeptase has been formulated with the use of Methacrylic Acid Copolymer (MAAC), a safe food-grade compound used in the pharmaceutical industry with no reported side effects. Without enteric coating, enzymes will denature in the stomach, and simply be a really expensive digestive enzyme.

The Excellacor formulation has been commercially available for nearly 20 years. This original proprietary formula created by our master enzymologist has been used with much success.  Serrapeptase 80,000 SPU is one of the most potent doses of Serrapeptase on the market today. Our systemic enzyme blend is manufactured in an ISO 9001:2000 and GMP certified facility.

What is systemic enzyme therapy?

Systemic enzyme therapy refers to the therapeutic use of natural enzymes to produce desired healing effects. Systemic enzymes are absorbed in the small intestine where they enter the bloodstream. Then they carry out desired benefits throughout the body. Their crucial role in normal inflammatory response assists and supports the body in accelerated healing.

What are proteolytic enzymes?

Proteolytic enzymes break down proteins into their building-blocks, which are called amino acids. Systemic proteolytic enzymes are responsible for breaking down accumulated protein and waste substances found in the circulatory system and connective tissue.

Why is it important to take Excellacor and Serrapeptase on an empty stomach?

Since most absorption occurs in the small intestine, the systemic enzymes must bypass the stomach to gain access there. If the enzymes are taken with food, they will likely begin working to break down your food within the stomach, rather than passing through to the small intestine. Taking systemic enzymes like Excellacor with food will compromise their absorption, as well as their effectiveness.

Does Excellacor have an enteric coating?

Yes, the serrapeptase in Excellacor is enterically coated. While similar systemic enzymes may have the same active ingredients, most do not utilize enteric coating. The purpose of enteric coating is to protect the enzyme from the acidic environment of the stomach. High activity level is preserved until the enzymes reach the small intestine, where absorption into the bloodstream takes place. While the enteric coating can withstand the acidic environment of the stomach, the alkaline environment of the small intestine will disintegrate the enteric coating, allowing the enzyme to be active within the bloodstream.

Do you use phthalates in your enteric coating?

No, our enteric coating does not use or contain phthalates. At AST Enzymes, we use Methacrylic Acid Copolymer (MAAC) for our enteric coating. Compared to other commonly used enteric coating agents such as Cellulose Acetate Phthalate (CAP) and Hydroxypropyl Methycellulose Phthalate (HPMCP), MAAC is the most gastro-resistant and does not carry the same risks. Additionally, MAAC is considered GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) by the FDA and is approved for use by the European Food Safety Authority.

How long should I take Excellacor before feeling results?

Since people experience varying ailments and severity of disease, the length of time to include systemic enzymes in your regimen may vary as well. As an overall guideline, it is typically recommended that new systemic enzyme users start off slow. A starter dose is generally one capsule, three times daily. After three to four days of proven tolerance, the dose can be increased to a therapeutic dose of 3 capsules, 3 times per day. At this point, results may be monitored, and dosage should be adjusted accordingly. Some consumers find their therapeutic dose between 9-15 capsules per day, while others only need 3-6. There are several factors that may affect results and required dosage, including:

  • Height
  • Weight
  • Age
  • Severity of symptoms
  • Tolerance
  • Time of administration (Better absorbed on an empty stomach)
  • Adherence to regimen
  • Nutritional state

What if I miss a dose?

Regular, consistent use of systemic enzymes will provide the best results. However, missed doses of systemic enzymes do not have serious repercussions. Although symptoms alleviated by systemic enzyme therapy may resurface, getting back on track by remembering to take your next dose will suffice. There is no need to “double up,” on one dose – and remember, systemic enzymes are best absorbed on an empty stomach.

Are there any side effects involved with Excellacor?

The use of Excellacor has not been shown to exhibit detrimental effects, neither long term nor short term. Just as dosage requirements vary, side effects may vary.  Although gastrointestinal disturbances have been stated by a small percentage of new users, tolerance is maintained once the dosage is adjusted. Minor allergic reactions, like reddening of the skin, are also rare occurrences, and can be seen with extremely high doses. There are no known interactions with prescription or over the counter drugs while using systemic enzyme therapy. However, it is recommended that you consult with your physician about starting systemic enzymes, especially if you are on blood-thinning medications or if you are pregnant or nursing.

Can I take Excelacor with other systemic enzymes?

Systemic enzymes may be taken together, yielding desirable results, as long as they are taken on an empty stomach. In fact, it is often recommended that systemic enzymes be combined. Products like Excellacor and Serrapeptase often have synergistic effects when taken together. This means that the separate products work together to produce advantageous results. By combining and enhancing the activity of the enzymes, their effects on the healing process are more attainable.

Can I take Excellacor with digestive enzymes?

Although digestive and systemic enzymes are not contraindicated in terms of ingredients, they cannot be taken at the same time. The purpose of digestive enzymes is to aid in digestion of specific foods, so taking them with food is an obvious recommendation. Because systemic enzymes require an empty stomach for maximum absorption, they must be taken separately from digestive enzymes. There are no adverse interactions between systemic and digestive enzymes, but they serve different purposes and thus should be taken as directed for best results.

    I’ve learned that practically nothing is 100%; however, after testing this product my ability to get thru the day has been made much easier,and attribute the Excellacor and Serrapeptase. My ability to endure walking any lengthy distance,and even climbing stairs has been impacted a good deal the last few years. I noticed that I no longer have as much resistance to either after testing out these products. It is amazing, for the one thing I tried to avoid almost 100% was going up stairs. I no longer fear that feat! It’s a joy to be able to accomplish what is an every day occurrence to most, but has been preventative to me!!! I am amazed!!!!!! And am grateful I have discovered these products. Thank you.
