Frequently Asked Questions
Neprinol is a proprietary combination of Serrapeptase, Nattokinase, Protease, Lipase, Bromelain, Papain, Rutin, Amla and other proteolytic enzymes that are specially formulated to support healthy fibrin levels. Neprinol has been used to support the immune and circulatory systems, maintain a healthy inflammatory response and to support the body's natural recovery process.*
Enzymes are proteins (or protein-based molecules) that act as catalysts in biochemical reactions. Every enzyme has a specific reactant known as a substrate, which can be thought of like a lock and a key. Only a specific enzyme (or key) will react (or unlock) its substrate. This is the reason why enzymes are unable to break down necessary and vital tissue, as they only react with certain harmful proteins in the body.
When enzymes are introduced into the bloodstream, they work “systemically”, or throughout the entire body. Taking enzymes on an empty stomach allows them to work systemically since they will bypass the upper digestive process and enter the bloodstream through the intestine. Systemic enzymes are similar to digestive enzymes, though certain enzymes are better designed for systemic activity as opposed to digestion due to the materials they react with, such as Serrapeptase and Nattokinase. These two enzymes are very efficient with the breakdown of a particular substance known as Fibrin.
Fibrin is a protein substance naturally formed in the human body that plays a significant role in our health and general well-being. Fibrin is responsible for scar tissue formation, and is produced as a reaction to injury. Our bodies naturally maintain healthy fibrin levels with enzymes (principally plasmin) whose role is to attack and break down any excessive fibrin. As fibrin builds up in the body, it can cause many unhealthy conditions.
As we age, our natural enzyme production decreases while the need for these enzymes is of increasing importance. Supplementing these valuable enzymes can combat enzyme deficiencies that can lead to a wide variety of health concerns. Healthy levels of these enzymes can assist the body in maintaining a healthy immune system, healthy joints, proper circulation and an overall balanced reaction to injury.
By supplementing and replenishing the body's diminishing enzymes, Neprinol provides one of our most essential and basic biochemical needs. It supplements the body's natural fibrinolytic enzyme levels thereby helping to maintain healthy fibrin levels: an underlying causative agent for many unhealthy conditions in the body.*
Enteric coatings are designed to protect enzymes and other supplements from stomach acid. Plastic-like chemicals known as phthalates are often used in this coating process. Phthalates are actually banned in children's toys in Europe and Mexico, so why would we ever include these in our formulas? Arthur Andrew Medical has instead developed an all-natural, chemical-free Acid Armor capsule. These capsules are comprised of an extra-thick layer of cellulose (vegetable capsules) with a micro threaded locking mechanism to prevent leaking. Acid Armor capsules have been designed to delay the release of the capsule's contents for up to an hour without the use of potentially harmful chemicals.
No serious or adverse side effects have been reported from taking systemic enzymes such as Neprinol*. If you are taking blood-thinning medication, you should consult with your physician before taking Neprinol.
