Proprietary blend contains: Bromelain, papain, rutin, amylase, protease, lipase, amla and serrapeptase. For a full description of these ingredients, see below.

Other ingredients: Medium-chain triglycerides, starch, glycerin, polysaccharides, pH resistant enteric coating (non-gmo corn protein)*, beeswax, glycerin fatty acid ester, soy lecithin**, citric acid.

*The corn protein (pH resistant enteric coating), which derived from non-GMO corn, is part of the enteric coating around the capsule, and comprises less than 1% of the total product. There has not been a single report of an allergic reaction due to the corn protein in Vitalzym, but we suggest that if you have concerns about allergies please contact your healthcare provider regarding your own personal sensitivity levels prior to taking this product. Corn protein was chosen over commonly-used phthalates (a dangerous plasticizer) for the enteric coating of the Vitalzym capsules.

**The soy lecithin acts an emulsifier, and is only in trace amounts - less than 1% of the entire product. Testing of soy lecithin has confirmed that no phytoestrogens are delivered to the body, and therefore there is no impact on hormones. People with a soy allergy have never reported any issues with Vitalzym capsules.

WARNING: DO NOT take Vitalzym without the consent of your physician if you are lactating or currently taking prescription anticoagulants (blood thinners). As always, you should consult with a health care professional and/or pharmacist if you are taking prescription medications and would like to include dietary supplements into your regimen.

  • If you are pregnant, consult with a doctor prior to using.
  • If you are pregnant AND have uterine fibroids, do not take Vitalzym.
  • If you have bleeding ulcers, or are a hemophiliac, avoid using Vitalzym.
  • Discontinue use two weeks prior to surgery.
  • Anyone who has ever suffered intracranial (brain) bleeding, or who has had neurosurgery or ischemic stroke in the previous six months, should avoid these enzymes.
Caution Regarding Serrapeptase

Not everyone should take Serrapeptase. This includes:

  • People with bleeding disorders, such as hemophilia or a group of diseases called "hemorrhagic diathesis", should not use this natural product.

  • People with ongoing bleeding problems, including ulcers, recent surgery, recent major trauma, or hemorrhoids also should not use serrapeptase.

  • Those with severe uncontrolled high blood pressure should also refrain from taking nattokinase and serrapeptase.
Detoxification Effects

During the detoxification process, medications that have been stored in the liver may cause one to experience side effects that are related to its use and would not be considered a side effect from Vitalzym.

Please talk with a health care professional if you feel you may be having symptoms that are unrelated to detoxing. Detoxification effects that can occur when taking Vitalzym can include heart palpitations for some individuals. If this occurs, you can reduce your dose to minimize the cleansing response. If you do experience heart palpitations that you feel may be unrelated to detoxing, please consult with a health care professional.

Medication Interactions

Additionally, Vitalzym can increase the effectiveness of certain medications; another reason to consult with a doctor or pharmacist prior to using them if taking prescription drugs.

Manufactured by World Nutrition, Inc. Vitalzym passes USP (United States Pharmacopeia) testing for disintegration and dissolution.

Vitalzym Ingredients Glossary


Also known as Indian gooseberry, Emblica officinalis is the richest source of Vitamin C. It also contains tannic acid, glucose, protein, cellulose and calcium. Amla is useful for stomach problems, it is antipyretic, hair tonic and nerve brain tonic. It's also useful in anemia, hyperacidity and in gynecological problems and epistaxis. Amla is considered to have restorative and preventive properties.


A digestive enzyme that breaks down carbohydrates and increases absorption of essential nutrients from food.

Bromelain and Papain

Both Bromelain and Papain are plant derived proteolytic enzymes. Bromelain, also known as bromelin, is a protein-digesting enzyme extracted from the flesh and stem of the pineapple plant, Ananas comosus. . Bromelain is most notable for its effectiveness in the reduction of inflammation and decreasing swelling, but the scope of its benefits continues to increase. As a natural enzyme that supports a healthy inflammation response, bromelain has many uses. It promotes bone and joint health as well as improves healthy circulation. The benefit of bromelain occurs over a broad range of doses, and even small amounts may be beneficial to improving cardiovascular health.

Papain, is a proteolytic enzyme isolated from the papaya plant, Carica papaya. Papain has been shown to be effective in promoting wound healing after burn and rejuvenating skin cell health.† Papain is also used for the following:

  • Defibrinate wounds in hospitals†
  • Preventing cornea scar deformation†
  • Used in treatments of jellyfish and insect stings†
  • To promote release of excess fluids†
  • To improve a healthy inflammation response†
  • In low doses as an indigestion medicine†


A digestive enzyme that breaks down fat during the digestive process and increases the absorption of nutrients from food.

Proteolytic enzyme (Protease)

The term "proteolytic" refers to all enzymes that digest protein. In the body, proteolytic digestive enzymes (including amylase and lipase) are produced in the pancreas, but supplemental forms of enzymes may come from fungal or bacterial sources, extraction from the pancreas of livestock animals (trypsin/chymotrypsin) or extraction from plants (such as papain from the papaya and Bromelain from pineapples). The primary uses of proteolytic enzymes in dietary supplements are used as digestive or systemic enzymes.

There are a number of clinical trials showing the benefits of using oral proteolytic enzymes as a digestive aid. Proteolytic enzymes are also believed to help improve allergy-related immunity, support joint and bone health, and maintain a healthy inflammation response.


Is one of the many existing flavonoids. Flavonoids are a class of water-soluble plant pigments. Flavonoids support health by strengthening capillaries and other connective tissue, and some function as support for a healthy inflammation response and immune health. Rutin and several other flavonoids may also improve blood vessel health.


Serrapeptase, also known as Serratiopeptidase, is a proteolytic enzyme isolated from the non-pathogenic enterobacteria Serratia E15. The enzyme is found naturally in the intestine of the silkworm, which is used by the silkworm to dissolve the cocoon and emerge as a moth. The enzymes are then cultured and extracted in a lab from the medium so that not a trace of fungus is left on the enzyme and the purity is assured. This enzyme is able to digest various tissues, yet will not eat away at tissue the body needs.
