Let’s be honest — systemic enzyme therapy doesn’t sound like the safest kind of therapy around. Maybe it’s because of the way it sounds, or maybe it’s because most people don’t know much about enzymes in general, let alone systemic enzymes. Because of that, we have decided to dedicate an entire article to one of the most commonly asked questions related to systemic enzyme therapy.
Is systemic enzyme therapy safe?
This question is probably the most important question that people have because it is the only one that can truly deter them away from systemic enzyme therapy. This is perfectly acceptable, and this is why we encourage people to read as much as they possibly can on this topic instead of diving headfirst into it.
With that being said, systemic enzyme therapy has always been safe, is currently completely safe and will remain safe until the ends of times. Here is what Dr. William Wong ND, PhD, a strong advocate for systemic enzyme therapy as well as a reliable source of information on this topic has to say about the safety of systemic enzymes:
[Systemic enzymes] are perfectly safe and free of dangerous side effects. They have no LD-50, or toxic dose.
But while systemic enzyme therapy has no side effects, it is still not recommended for people on blood-thinning medications such as Plavix or Heparin. This is due to systemic enzymes breaking down the proteins that lead to clot formation, which in turn leads to a thinner and overall healthier blood. If you are on a blood-thinning medication like the ones listed above then we highly encourage that you consult with a doctor before hopping on the systemic enzyme therapy train. Chances are that you will be able to enjoy its full benefits while at the same time cutting back on your medication.
Also remember to always read the labels of systemic enzyme products carefully before purchasing them.
Happy (and safe) therapy!
