Enzyme Safety

Globally conscious herbal teas and supplements

Enzyme Safety…..How safe are enzymes? The use of enzymes in food and dietary supplements dates back to the early 1900s. In the 1920s, Dr. Edward Howell did extensive research on the health benefits of enzyme supplements and reported no adverse side effects. Thousands of health care professionals have prescribed or recommended vegetarian enzymes as a treatment for digestive disorders or inflammation since the 1950s and they too haven’t reported any adverse side effects.

The FDA’s Generally Regarded Safe (GRS) list includes vegetarian enzymes. This means they are safe and acceptable for use in food or dietary supplements. Both animal and human studies have shown vegetarian enzymes to be extremely safe having no toxic limit, no matter what the size of the dose or the duration of treatment. There is also no evidence that vegetarian enzymes interact with other ingredients in the supplement, with other nutritional supplements or with medications.

Recent studies have compared enzyme supplements with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) as a treatment for inflammation. The enzymes had an extremely more favorable safety profile then the NSAIDS. This would make them a safe alternative to NSAIDS. One supplement called Wobenzym N manufactured in Germany is very popular in Europe for this purpose.
