These are proteolytic enzymes, which cleave other proteins. While under normal physiological condition, proteolytic enzymes maintain homeostasis in the healthy body, they also break down aberrant proteins that may arise during various diseases. Thus, in basic research and several tens of clinical studies carried out over the years under the auspices of MUCOS Pharma, Wobenzym has been found to degrade, for example, harmful and abnormal immune complexes that precipitate autoimmune diseases.

Systemic enzymes such as bromelain, papain, trypsin and pancreatin help to destroy and break up proteins. While most proteins are good, other proteins known as Circulating Immune Complexes (CICs) are at the root of most joint inflammation. The enzymes in Wobenzym N destroy CICs, clearing the way for the body's natural repair process.

Our bodies naturally produce these enzymes, but we lose this ability with age.This is the main reason why we don't recover as quickly from strains and sprains as we did when we were younger. Our joints no longer repair themselves properly, which can lead to osteoarthritis.

Each Capsule Contains :
Pancreatin* – 56,000 USP units protease (pancreas) Sus scrofa 300 mg
Papain* – 492 FIP-unit** Carica papaya 180 mg
Bromelain* - 675 FIP-unit** Ananus comosus 135 mg
Trypsin* – 2160 FIP-unit** (pancreas) Sus scrofa 72 mg
Chymotrypsin* – 900 FIP-unit** (pancreas) Bos Taurus 3 mg
Rutosid* – 3 H20 (Rutin) Sophora japonica 150 mg
you can see the whole thing at

something tells me you can probably find your own enzyme combinations cheaper than that. But I am back on the enzyme bandwagon lately using at night and AM on empty stomach for recovery. (not using for digestion issues at the moment)
