Why use Wobenzym N?

1) Joint HealthWobenzym N has been shown in studies to be an effective means of combating joint pain. The systemic enzyme support provided by Wobenzym N controls the inflammation that leads to pain, soreness, and mobility challenges.

2) Inflammation

3) Sports and Exercise Injuries
Both Boris Becker and Steffi Graf, two of Germany's leading internationally recognized tennis stars, use Wobenzym N to help battle the aches and pains of sports injuries. Even more incredible, the German and Austrian Olympic teams ordered one million Wobenzym N tablets for the 1998 Winter Olympics. The reason behind this is simply because they wanted to win, and combination oral enzymes can offer a super competitive edge in the sports field.

The majority of sports and exercise injuries are usually one of two things. Either contusions involving injuries just below the surface of the skin, or sprains in which the ligaments around a joint are injured. In almost all cases, if you are injured, initial therapy should consist of a series of first cooling, then compression, and last sufficient rest. After that initial treatment, your choice of pain reliever is key to whether your injury will continue to hamper you for a while or will quickly heal.

Typically, a doctor may prescribe a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or another type of pain reliever, for sports and exercise injuries, especially when there is inflammation involved. NSAIDs work well for quickly relieving pain and inflammation, and people generally can safely use NSAIDs for up to a few days at a time. However, when these same NSAIDs are used chronically, these medications can have many severe complications. NSAIDs are irritating to the stomach, and based on lots of clinical experience, they will cause microscopic bleeding after only about three days of use. This can even further progress into causing ulcers and other gastrointestinal problems when used for extended periods of time.

The metabolism of the cartilage may be impaired and the degenerative process accelerated using these NSAID drugs such as aspirin and ibuprofen. If your pain is severe, aspirin or ibuprofen can be used, but this should only be for a short while, up to around three days. Then it would be best to switch over to enzymes such as Wobenzym N.

In Germany as elsewhere in Europe, sports medicine doctors have discovered a natural, safer pathway for healing sports and exercise related injuries. For athletes that are always sore days after their workout, a quality enzyme mixture is by far the superior choice for safety and reducing inflammation.

Enzymes are one of the most powerful, yet little known secrets that are currently available to American consumers who are concerned with reducing inflammation and speeding up the recovery process from sports injuries. Enzymes are often recommended to athletes over any other type of pain reliever because they work so well and are so safe.

In 1979, Wobenzym N was tested on 45 people who had sustained significant sports injuries. Doses ranging from three to ten enteric coated tablets were given to each, and substantial improvement was seen in each of them. In a second study, similar good results were obtained for 38 of the 56 individuals with typical sports injuries. These 38 responded "very well" to the Wobenzym while eight other athletes responded "well" with Wobenzym N enteric coated tablets. Thus 46 of the 56 individuals have significant improvement while taking Wobenzym.

Boxing may be the most physically punishing sport in the world today. Enzymes have proven to be more than a match for inflammation and pain in boxers. In one study, published in The Practitioner, enzymes were shown to significantly reduce a variety of injuries such as cuts, scrapes, broken blood vessels, bruising, and sprains when used prior to entering the ring. A boxer could benefit significantly from this not only during fights, but also during regular daily training and sparring.

Enzymes are in fact so effective that the American Boxing Association (ABA) stipulates that athletes should take enzyme preparations several days before a fight in order to subdue the inflammation that is inevitably caused by the head trauma, and to accelerate the healing process.

Similar excellent findings were reported in The Practitioner concerning British football (soccer) players. Among these players, the ones who used enzymes missed fewer games and recovered quicker.

Other good results have been found when enzymes were used for both prevention and for stimulating quicker healing among many German martial arts competitors. Athletes suffering hematomas, swelling, pain, tenderness and impaired mobility experienced much greater improvement in every parameter compared to those athletes that did not receive the enzyme mixture.

When the same enzyme mixture was given to members of the German National Ice Hockey League, it was found that injured players that took Wobenzym were able to return to competition more rapidly than those that did not take the enteric coated enzymes.

Sprained or twisted ankles are one of the most common of all sports injuries. In one placebo-controlled study, 22 of the 44 people with sprained ankles received Wobenzym N for a period of 10 days. The results showed that swelling and pain were significantly reduced and mobility of the injured joint was substantially restored more rapidly in individuals taking the Wobenzym enzyme mixture.

More than 20 additional studies have further confirmed that the enzymes contained in Wobenzym help to stimulate reductions in swelling, immobility, inflammation, tenderness, and pain along with helping to improve recovery time.
