Wobenzym N & Traveler's Risk of Blood Clots

"International Carriers Address New Threat: Coach Class Syndrome" was the Wednesday, June 27, 2001 headline in the Wall Street Journal. It's just one of dozens of stories being reported about passengers concerned about DVT, deep vein thrombosis. DVT occurs when blood clots deep in the tissues of the calves or groin travel to other parts of the body. DVT is dangerous because when the blood clot travels to a person's lungs, it can lead to death. Now, Naturally Vitamins, a Phoenix Arizona based nutraceutical company, is offering two ways to help people lower their risk for this problem. The first is the use of Wobenzym in the days before the
flight. The second is some simple exercises demonstrated in a free brochure.

Wobenzym: Systemic enzymes like the ones in Wobenzym, are necessary for the regeneration of cells and the health and functionality of all organs and tissues. As people age, enzymes are lost and should be replaced. More than 150 clinical studies have shown Wobenzym helps to keep the body running smoothly by enhancing circulation and breaking down harmful proteins that can lead to stiffness, swelling and joint discomfort. It's this circulation enhancement that may lessen the risk of DVT for long haul airline passengers.

Brochure: A recent study in the British Medical Journal recommends that
during flight, passengers stretch or flex the calf muscles while seated, drink plenty of water and avoid alcohol and caffeine that can cause dehydration. Naturally Vitamins is taking the lead in passenger education by publishing a free brochure demonstrating simple exercises. The brochure features Dr. William Wong, a naturopath, a PhD exercise physiologist, and a
 certified sports medicine trainer.
