At last, summer is here. Time once again to share our popular summertime enzyme tips.
Along with the heat, humidity and bugs come more outdoor activities for the kids, which means more chance of bumps, bites and bruises.
We have emphasized how enzymes help digestion, but there are other uses for these enzymes - especially for this time of year.
For minor stings, make a poultice of AFP-Peptizyde onto the sting as quickly as possible. Apple cider vinegar is a good liquid to dissolve the enzymes as the apple cider vinegar itself is often used for insect stings and has a pH of around 5 which is the optimal pH level for the enzymes to work. White vinegar has a pH that may be too low, but water is also a good medium; the enzymes will still do their work. Alternatively, you can soak the finger or area with an enzyme solution (4 capsules per 3 tablespoons of warm water or cider vinegar).
Many of the toxins in bee and wasp stings are peptide in nature, and the protease enzymes in AFP-Peptizyde can break those toxins down as well as reduce the swelling. Make sure the enzyme powder gets moist as the enzymes won't activate until in solution. Of course, this advice is not applicable to those who are highly allergic to insect stings and bites. If you do have anaphylactic reactions to insect stings, remember to keep your "epi pens" handy!
