Sore Muscles? Enzyme Supplement Improves Recovery

Muscles damaged by exercise can become sore and painful later, slowing training and reducing performance. In this study, 72 male athletes, age 20 to 50, took the supplement Wobenzym--a combination of the enzymes bromelain, papain, pancreatin, and trypsin--or a placebo 72 hours before and 72 hours after a day of exhausting quadriceps exercises designed to damage muscle. Some of the men were less resistance-trained, others were endurance trained.

Compared to placebo, the less resistance-trained men who took the enzyme supplement were able to maintain strength and had less pain after exercise. The endurance athletes had less inflammation, and signs of beneficial effects on metabolic and immune function.

While Wobenzym is in fact an enzyme mixture, these proteolytic enzymes are not designed to provide digestive support. Instead, they are designed to exert a systemic anti-inflammatory action.
