Lysozyme Plus is a blend of "proteolytic enzymes," enzymes that break down proteins. Proteolytic enzymes reduce inflammation, prevent blood clots, prevent the formation of scar tissue and can initiate breakdown of tumors. They also have an antiviral effect. The pain from acute injuries and even from chronic conditions like arthritis is from inflammation resulting from the immune system trying to break down dead tissue. The immune system uses proteolytic enzymes from the pancreas for this purpose. Adding extra enzymes from food sources accelerates this process; extra enzymes help the process of inflammation do what it is supposed to do: dissolve and remove damaged tissue. Enzymes break down and remove the barrier to circulation caused by swelling and the debris from tissue injury.
Proteolytic enzymes have been used to treat inflammation, for tumor reduction and also as a preventive for thrombotic disease. Formation of clots is the cause of heart attacks (myocardial infarction) and strokes. Inflammation of arteries may cause swelling and be the cause of or contribute to elevation of blood pressure. Proteolytic enzymes are used more commonly by doctors in Germany, Austria, and the Netherlands. There is a substantial research literature on their use.
