TPPTM Protease is a proprietary blend of highly active proteolytic enzymes with a wide range of pH stability. Proteolytic enzymes taken orally under certain conditions have been shown to be absorbed in substantial quantities into the blood. Once in the blood circulation, the enzymes in this blend bind to serum proteins, particularly alpha 2-macroglobulin (a2M), and impart immunomodulatory benefits. One of the best-established functions served by the oral proteases in TPPTM blend is in the maintenance of normal blood flow. This is accomplished by breaking down blood clots (fibrinolysis) and platelet aggregation within blood vessels and breaking down excess extra-vascular plasma proteins as in edema. TPPTM Protease will also enhance the hydrolysis of food proteins for enhanced bio-availability of amino acids.
