Our Enzyme capsules are not enteric-coated; they are made from cellulose. These capsules have the ability to dissolve faster within the stomach and can release its contents to be utilized by the body at a more effective pace.
However, the Serrapeptase powder within the Systemic Enzyme is enteric coated. This coating allows the powder to pass through the stomach and dissolve in the small intestine where the enzymes are then released.
For the Systemic Enzyme to be highly effective, they need to be taken on a completely empty stomach! (Take 30-60 minutes before, or two hours after, eating.) This, in turn, allows the Serrepeptase to pass through the stomach, into the villi (membrane) of the small intestines. From there, it passes into the bloodstream, specifically into the capillaries (very small vessels) where the serrapeptase gets to work in your body.
