Protease the enzyme responsible for digesting protein, contributes to general good health in many ways. It breaks up molecules called circulating immune complexes, which can disrupt immune function; reduces edema (swelling) and inflammation; and prevents the accumulation of excess fibrin, which can cause dangerous blood clots. It purifies the blood and clears it of old, dead tissue and is highly beneficial for preventing and treating all manner of infections, whether caused by viruses, bacteria, fungi or parasites.
I suggest taking one protease capsule two or three times a day, 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal for general health maintenance. Timing is important; when using protease as a systemic therapy rather than for digestive support, you do not want the enzyme to start acting on food in the intestines. Rather, it should travel intact from the intestines into the bloodstream, where it can act on the blood and lymph systems. Washing down your protease supplement with a generous glass of water should help.
