Lumbrokinase consists of a group of proteolytic enzymes, and is derived from the earthworm Lumbricus rubellus. In acid-resistant, delayed-release, phthalate-free vegetarian capsules.
Suggested use: As a dietary supplement, 1 or 2 capsules in the morning, 1 or 2 capsules in the afternoon, and 2 capsules at bedtime, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner. Take with 8-10 oz of water, with or without food. Use under medical supervision if taking anticoagulant drugs. Contraindicated in any conditions associated with bleeding.
Other ingredients: Rice dextrin, medium chain triglycerides, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, water, gellan gum.
Note: Recently steps were taken to improve the delivery of Lumbrokinase (as of May, 2016). The previous version’s ‘enteric-coated’ capsules utilized a phthalate-coating to create a form of acid-resistance. Now acid resistant capsules are used that are FREE of phthalate and other coatings. Instead, gellan gum serves to buffer the enzymes as they pass through the stomach acid.
The potency of the enzymes and the bottle sizes have not changed. The lumbrokinase is slightly more concentrated, so each serving of 600,000 IU require 32 mg instead of 40 mg (by weight). The potency of the lumbrokinase (IU activity) is what matters, and is unchanged.
Keep in a cool, dry place, tightly capped.
