    Default Enzmes.com for Bovine papilloma

    Has anyone used or know anything about "Enzmes" which is the name of the product? I'm asking specifically about Bovine papilloma virus

    No, it is going to be used on a horse or cow?

    Couldn't find the website. Sure it's spelled correctly?

    What product is being considered? what is the ratioale behind using it?
    From what I've seen on the page referenced above, they're trying to convince people that consuming "enzymes" (which will be broken down by the acids and gasp--the *enzymes* in your or the horse's GI tract) will cause miraculous things to happen.

    NZYMES.com sorry for the misspelling. It's for animals and people and someone sent me a recipe for horses with Bovine Papilloma with NZYMES.

    8 oz Noni Tahati
    4 oz Wolfberry
    4 oz POM pomegranate
    6 t fish oil
    1 tsp Pomegranate concentrate
    Vita flex
    5 t NZYMES

    Voodoo?

    As far as I know the only thing Bovine Papillomavirus type 2 causes in horses is sarcoids. Is this what you are trying to treat?

    Sounds like a bunch of nonsense.

    Yes, we tried xterra and it stopped spreading, but did not go away. Another discussion with the vet is next. In the meantime a friend of mine sent me the above recipe. I think I'll pass. . .

    The above, from a British veterinary practice, seems like a good overview. A horse here just had a sarcoid on his shoulder frozen off with liquid nitrogen.

    I've used Sarcoid Salve by Carefree Enzymes. They came back the first time, but after a second treatment, they're gone and have stayed gone for about 3 to 4 years.

    I see their recommendations are different and they're promoting it as a pre and post surgical cream. Maybe I just got lucky, but one of the sarcoids was right next to my QH's eye. It's completely gone with no scar.

    There are certain instances where enzymes are great and have been proven in legitimate studies to be beneficial (for digestion mainly), but I don't see how any effect would be seen on a virus... I'm curious as to their concept behind it, though.

    Life is impossible without enzymes. But their use medicinally is EXTREMELY limited, and generally only in cases of . . . some sort of enzyme deficiency and extremely focused, "niche" applications. Beyond that, especially in terms of ingesting them, enzymes can be considered fancy bits of protein and not much else. They require just the right environment and substrate to do anything at all, and if those things are not in place they are functionally useless.
