Zymactive® provides a spectrum of protein-digesting enzymes useful in supporting proper digestive function as well as nutritional support for individuals experiencing inflammation or cancer.

Zymactive is a unique enzyme complex that is more than twice as potent in protein digesting activity as the leading brand. Peptizyme SP®, a proprietary enzyme referred to as the “silk worm enzyme” has a more powerful and broader pH stability than chymotrypsin and trypsin. It has been used in Europe and Japan for more than 25 years for inflammation, post-surgical swelling, carpal tunnel syndrome, and ear, nose, and throat disorders, with good clinical research behind it.

Zymactive is the finest therapeutic enzyme blend available.

Zymactive is more than twice as potent in protein-digesting activity as other brands.

Zymactive contains the proprietary Serratia Peptidase enzyme. Serrapeptase is an enzyme that is produced in the intestines of silk worms to break down cocoon walls. This enzyme is proving to be a superior alternative to the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents (NSAIDs) traditionally used to treat rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Its uses have also been extended to the treatment of chronic sinusitis and postoperative inflammation, and some researchers believe the substance can play an important role in arterial plaque prevention and removal. Besides reducing inflammation, one of serrapeptase's most profound benefits is reduction of pain, due to its ability to block the release of pain-inducing amines from inflamed tissues.

Zymactive tablets are enteric-coated (wrapped a protective coating), to protect them from stomach acid that can destroy pancreatic enzymes. Thus protected, the enzymes are able to enter the blood stream in their natural form for greater effectiveness.

Zymactive with Serratia Peptidase improves or eliminates the following conditions:

Inflammatory Conditions:
Zymactive’s enzyme action reduces inflammation, which is a major factor in:
Joint Pain
Carpel Tunnel Syndrome


Cancer cures and advice Index















Food supplements

Sports injuries and trauma
Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s Disease
Sinusitis, Asthma, Bronchitis, and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
Post-surgical swelling

Autoimmune Disorders:
Zymactive containing Serratia Peptidase and the other enzymes, break down immune complexes
that cause the body to attack its own cells, which is common in many inflammatory and autoimmune conditions.

Rheumatoid Arthritis
Food and other allergies
Herpes Zoster (shingles)
Fibrocystic Breast Disease
Multiple Sclerosis

Hardening of the Arteries/Stroke:
Serratia Peptidase (serrapeptase) and the other enzymes in Zymactive, have been shown to effectively remove the plaque that can build up in arteries (atherosclerosis), which causes heart attacks and strokes.

Digestive Problems:
The effective action of proteolytic enzymes in digesting proteins reduces bloating, flatulence and other digestive discomforts. Zymactive can also enhance absorption of nutrients from food for overall health enhancement.

Numerous clinical trials have been conducted using proteolytic enzymes in patients with cancers of the breast, lung, stomach, head and neck, ovaries, cervix, colon, lymphomas and multiple myeloma. Patients showed improvement in their general condition, quality of life and modest to significant improvements in life expectancy. Currently, the National Cancer Institute is conducting a large-scale study on the benefits of proteolytic enzymes in patients with advanced pancreatic cancer. Proteolytic enzymes have been used safely and effectively with conventional therapies including surgery, chemotherapy and radiation.
