Robynzyme is a formula designed by Dr. Mitchell after studying with the "Father of Nutritional Medicine," Jonathan Wright, MD. Robynzyme combines hydrochloric acid with digestive enzymes and B vitamins. Hydrochloric acid is normally produced in response to every meal we eat. Hydrochloric acid acts like a meat tenderizer in breaking down proteins into their amino acid building blocks. Think of proteins as a strand of pearls with each pearl being an amino acid. If a protein is not totally broken down into individual amino acids, undigested proteins can make it into the blood stream. Hydrochloric acid levels decline with age but it’s common for people to be born not producing enough. This is especially true for people whose mothers were over age 27 when they were born.
Hydrochloric acid may also act to sterilize everything we eat. Although you can't see them, everything you put into your mouth is covered with germs. When this food reaches the stomach, the stomach sprays it with hydrochloric acid to kill bacteria, viruses and fungi. Hydrochloric acid also keeps down the population of Candida yeast which normally resides in everyone's colon. If hydrochloric acid levels get low, bacteria and yeast overgrow and feed off the food you eat. Additionally, the "good bacteria" in your gut, acidophilous, does not do well unless there is plenty of hydrochloric acid (the name "acidophilous" means "acid loving"). Hydrochloric acid supports the absorption of nutritional building blocks such as amino acids, vitamins and minerals. Vitamin B12, for instance, cannot be absorbed unless there is adequate hydrochloric acid. Robynzyme replaces the hydrochloric acid to allow for adequate absorption of B-12.
Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. Hydrochloric acid breaks down proteins into individual amino acids. These amino acid building blocks can then be used to make other proteins needed by the body or other compound molecules needed for normal functioning. Healthy hair, skin and nails require adequate absorption of amino acids. Muscle and bones are made of protein. The antibodies that protect us from germs are made of protein. Chemicals made in the brain called "neurotransmitters" control our ability to think, remember, and control our mood. Homocysteine is an amino acid that is an important building block. The B vitamins: B12, B6, folate, and B1 are important to keep homocysteine levels normal.
The Robynzyme formula is completed by the addition of pancreatic enzymes. You need separate enzymes for the breakdown of proteins, fats, carbohydrates and fiber. Begin by taking five Robynzyme capsules each meal. The more animal protein you eat, the more hydrochloric acid you will need. Increase by one capsule each day until you feel a slight warm sensation in your stomach, then decrease the number by one.
