Los Angeles, CA, March 22, 2004 — Los Angeles-based Jarrow Formulas® today announced the unveiling of its all-new over-the-counter dietary supplement Flex-Zyme™. Jarrow Formulas’ Flex-Zyme™ is a blend of various proteases (enzymes that hydrolyze protein) from Serratia and is combined with bromelain and rutin for optimum joint and muscle function.
Proteases support joint health by affecting protein turnover in the body, including proteins found in joint tissue. The proteases in Flex-Zyme™ are bromelain, papain and Peptizyme SP©, which is naturally derived from the Serratia plant. Bromelain is a protein-digesting enzyme from pineapple. Flex-Zyme™ also contains Amla (gooseberry, Emblica officinalis) and rutin, which are rich in flavonoids that promote tissue repair.
“Flex-Zyme™ is the latest among many recent additions to the Jarrow Formulas line of products,” says Mark Becker, Director of Advertising/Communications for Jarrow Formulas. “Product innovation is always a Jarrow Formulas’ objective and Flex-Zyme™ has not disappointed.”
