Supportive Function: Disc-zym is an exciting two-phase proteolytic enzyme and mineral formula that technologically addresses two separate phases of digestion (stomach and small intestine), in order to optimize absorption and assimilation of nutrients necessary for support of healthy spinal discs and optimization of flexibility and movement.

When is Disc Support helpful? Back, neck and shoulder pain, laxity of ligaments, disc injury, ligament support; difficulty holding adjustments, TMJ problems.
Clinical Applications Research: Calcium (as ascorbate) and Magnesium (as aspartate): Calcium and magnesium act synergistically in hundreds of reactions in the body, and they must both be respected and taken in balance. As important as calcium is in muscle function, the contraction-relaxation phase cannot operate without magnesium. Bones also need healthy balances of both calcium and magnesium.

Manganese (as aspartate): Principle uses include: trauma and injury (sprains and strains), inflammation, ligament support, osteoporosis, epilepsy and diabetes. Manganese is an important component of Manganese Superoxide Dismutase (MnSOD), which is an enzyme that battles the damaging free radicals that cause swelling. Immediately after trauma, the body starts coding for more MnSOD to be produced (J Biol Chem. 1992; 267:10625-30). Repletion of manganese after inflammatory trauma is necessary to keep up the free radical defense system. Recent research has shown MnSOD to be an efficient anti-inflammatory agent in models of acute and chronic inflammation; administration has decreased swelling up to 50-70% (Free Rad Res Comm. 1991: 15:297-301). In another study, “MnSOD at 5 micrograms produced a significant suppression (44% p<0.05) in knee joint swelling at 24 hours... “These findings support a therapeutic potential of MnSOD in inflammatory disorders...” (Free Rad Res Comm. 1993; 18:291-8). Low levels have been found in epileptics/diabetics.

Enzymes: Enzymes have been shown to be helpful for inflammation and injury when taken away from meals, and for digestive problems when taken with meals.
Contraindications: Avoid at least one week prior to, and one week after, surgery.
