Fertility Benefits of Wobenzym N

Fertility Benefits of Wobenzym N

Systemic Enzyme Therapy for Fertility - Wobenzym NI am excited to share with all of you some important information about a systemic enzyme blend, backed by years of scientific research for a variety of fertility issues. Wobenzym N is an enzyme blend we like to use for Systemic Enzyme Therapy because it has been shown through research to be safe for use during pregnancy. This makes Wobenzym N a viable choice for women who desire to use Systemic Enzyme Therapy when trying to conceive.

Wobenzym is the only systemic enzyme formula that has been shown to safely reduce the incidence of immune-related recurrent miscarriage during pregnancy. The research also shows no negative side effects on either the mother or baby through long-term use during pregnancy. Other studies have given hope to the healing of Chlamydia, Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, Blocked Fallopian Tubes, scar tissue, and adhesions, and increases the chance of healing other immune-related fertility issues, such as antisperm antibodies.

79% Success in Preventing Immunological Induced Miscarriage…

Recently we shared with you a wonderful study on the use of systemic enzyme therapy for women whose bodies attack their fetus, which eventually leads to miscarriage. Many of these women have had multiple miscarriages until it was determined their bodies would trigger an immune response once they became pregnant. Doctors and scientists can’t explain why the body does this, but they do know that in women with immune-related miscarriage, the body sends attack cells to destroy the fetus. Wobenzym N was shown in this study to greatly reduce the incidence of miscarriage in women with immunological response to pregnancy resulting in miscarriage. In the 2000 study performed by Dr. F.-W. Dittmar, there were 144 women treated using the systemic enzyme blend Wobenzym N. Of these 144, 114 were able to carry out their pregnancies and gave birth to healthy babies. This is a 79% success rate with no adverse side-effects.

If you are one of these women who suffer from immunological-induced miscarriage, talk to your doctor about this study and the proven safety of using Wobenzym N throughout pregnancy!

Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) Treatment with Wobenzym N

Dr. F.-W. Dittmar also performed another study on women with Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID). PID is a general term used to describe inflammation of the uterus, ovaries, and/or fallopian tubes. PID can be caused by parasitic, viral, fungal, but most often is a bacterial infection. If left untreated PID, can lead to scar tissue and adhesion formation. If PID advances to this stage it may lead to blocked fallopian tubes and sterility in women. PID often comes from Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD’s). 2/3 of women who have undergone laparoscopic surgery to determine infertility cause who were found to have PID were unaware they even had PID.

Dr. Dittmar performed a randomized double -blind study on 100 female patients with PID. One group was given 5 tablets of Wobenzym N, three times a day. The control group was given an NSAID drug in the usual dosage. Both groups were also given antibiotics (PID requires antibiotics). The patients were given the treatment for 16 or 17 days. Wobenzym N performed with amazing results in fighting damage to tissues, pain, inflammation and overall pelvic congestion. 57% of women using Wobenzym N were without any complaints, whereas only 6% of women who took NSAIDs were without complaints. Overall, 100% of the patients who use Wobenzym N reported their condition as substantially improved, compared to only 73.5 % using the NSAIDs. In addition, studies have shown Wobenzym N enhances the body’s response to use of antibiotic medications.

Wobenzym N in Combination with Antibiotics Helps to Eradicate Chlamydia

Chlamydia is one of the most curious STDs today. This is because it is not a bacterium, fungus or virus, but yet it can do the most damage to fertility, resulting in sterility. Chlamydia can lead to PID, which may lead to blocked fallopian tubes, scar tissue, and adhesion as discussed above. It not only effects women, but men also. All of this may decrease your chances for a successful pregnancy. Chlamydia infection can also be very painful and damaging to the body. Chlamydia is always treated with a round of antibiotic treatment and it is usually successful, especially when caught very early. But in 30 to 50% of the cases, there is no elimination of the Chlamydia. Instead the use of antibiotics may transform the infection into a latent chronic form and can increase the likelihood for it to transform in to a drug-resistant infection.

In the case of Chlamydia infection, Wobenzym N was used in a study in Russia in 1997 to see if it could wipe-out any traces of Chlamydia infection when combined with antibiotic drug therapy. The study was done on both men and women. It is important to note that a Chlamydia infection, when advanced, can be very uncomfortable. In women, it can cause painful vaginal discharge, joint pain, itching, painful urination, and inflammation of the cervix and inner surface of the eyelid. In the study 57% of the women were diagnosed as infertile, 35% had suffered recurrent miscarriages. For the men, they were experiencing painful urination, pain in the perineum, anus and lumbar region, some urethral discharge, and hyperemia. Some of the men also had erectile dysfunction and an 80.9% of reduction in sperm quality, count, and health. Many of the sperm were deformed. This is a major concern for men with Chlamydia who are desiring to have children.

The first group of women who only used a course of antibiotic treatment had a success rate of only 17.2% eradication, with 72.4 percent still showing a pap smear with Chlamydia present.

Women who received antibiotics and Wobenzym N resulted in a 66.7% complete recovery rate.

Men who received both antibiotics and Wobenzym N had an 89.5% complete recovery rate.

“The most expressive clinical effect was received using the combination of the antibiotic, enzymes and immuno-correction.”- 10/2006 report in the Russian language publication of the Georgia Medical News Report.

Healing Scar Tissue and Adhesion Formation

Scar tissue and adhesions causing fertility issues can form for a variety of reasons: uterine fibroids, pelvic surgery such as Cesarean Section, PID, damage to fallopian tubes, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, IUD, or abortion.

How systemic enzyme blends eliminate scar tissue:

  • The systemic enzyme blend works as a biological response modifier; working with the body’s own immune defense system to moderate the inflammatory response.
  • They support cleansing of the tissues, and promote better circulation.
  • They break down and remove “fibrin”, the make-up of prolonged inflammation and scar tissue/adhesion formation.
  • They break down the proteins in the blood that cause inflammation; this facilitates their removal via the lymphatic and circulatory system.
  • Reduction in inflammation, increase in proper blood formation, and increase in proper circulation hinders scar tissue and adhesion formation, while reducing pain.

Using Wobenzym N Properly

It is important to realize that systemic enzyme blends work slowly over time. They are not like medications, either over the counter or prescription. Systemic enzyme blends are also much safer than medication and often just as effective. Systemic enzyme blends must be taken on an empty stomach 45 minutes to 1 hour prior to eating or 1-2 hours after consuming a meal. Drink with at least 8oz of water. It is better to take your dosage spread out in the day rather than all at once. Follow the directions on the product label or as directed in a therapeutic dose as suggested by your health care practitioner. Wobenzym is best used for 1-3 months consistently for most conditions. It has been shown safe for long term use even in pregnancy under the supervision of your doctor. Do not use this product without consulting your doctor if you are on blood thinners or other NSAID prescribed therapy. Click here to learn more about Fertility Enzyme Therapy…

“Wobenzym N is the most thoroughly researched enzyme mixture available worldwide. Wobenzym N contains five potent enzymes including pancreatin, trypsin, chymotrypsin, bromelain, and papain, as well as the bioflavanoind rutin. Wobenzym is clearly the most scientifically and clinically validated enzyme formula in the world.” -Michael Loes, M.D., M.D. (H.)

    I’m confused. The bottle says do not take while pregnant or breastfeeding. So is it not safe then? And I have tried to find studies on how this is suppose to help with pregnancy and miscarriage while taking this and I cannot find the study you are referring to. And also i’ve found that when I take this I feel achy. No other side effects just achy. Should I not take it? Is my immune system not happy with it? When I stop taking it the achy body goes away.

    • Dear Brook,

      This product is not marketed for fertility health purposes. Most supplements and herbs will say not to take while pregnant or breastfeeding and with many of them we would suggest the same, unless you are working with a doctor, herbalist or midwife who will guide you. We share information about the use of Wobenzym N preconception, prior to pregnancy. The study about women with immune related infertility is here… Here too are additional references about systemic enzymes and fertility...

      All that said, seek support from your healthcare provider if you wish to take this product in pregnancy. About how it is making you feel, I can not know if this is your immune system. It may be best to reach out to Garden of Life, the makers of Wobenzym N, would be best to learn if this is a side effect or the body responding to its actions. I have not had a client feel achey when taking Wobenzym N, so I can’t be sure.

      My best!

    I have recently had a 5th miscarriage and am looking for things to try. I had 3 miscarriages, then had a healthy, full-term pregnancy resulting in my son, and have had 2 more miscarriages. We were tested after 3 miscarriages for clotting issues, chromosomal abnormalities and hormone levels and everything came back clear. I’m unclear as to whether it’s even possible that I could be having immunological issues contributing to miscarriage since I’ve been able to carry to term. Would it be worth trying Wobenzym N anyway?

    • Dear Rebekah,

      I am very sorry for your losses! I can not know if immunological issues are at play. It does seem as though perhaps not given you did carry to term, but I am not a doctor who can know this for you.

      I guess my best advice is to continue to learn all that you can about Wobenzym N in order to decide if its right for you. Consider also learning about the tips we discuss in our guide 5 Steps To Decreasing the Chance of Recurrent Miscarriages.

      I hope this shares with you things you feel you can try!

    Can I use serrapeptase and wobenzym together to unblock my Fallopian tubes ?

    • Dear Nicole,

      Serrapeptase and Wobenzym N can be combined. The effectiveness of natural therapies alone however will depend on the location and/or severity of the blockage, in addition to what has led to, or is contributing to the blockage. Consider asking your healthcare provider if he can help you understand these factors as you contemplate the best plan for you.

      Given the small size and a fallopian tube and how delicate these organs are, any sort of trauma can alter their function and damage the tubal tissues. Once they are damaged it may be difficult to reverse that damage.Fallopian tubes that are severely damaged need special care and we would suggest you work with a specialist who will be able to evaluate your unique situation and determine the best possible course of care.

      The good news is that natural therapies can be used alongside any type of treatment options you are considering, which may greatly help to improve outcome.

      The guide that our founder wrote about naturally supporting fallopian tube health offers further explanation.

    I saw that another user asked if Wobenzym contains pork products, to which Elizabeth responded that it does. While it seems very effective, I would like to avoid anything with pig in it. Is VeganZyme a comparable supplement? It seems legitimate and has good reviews on their website, Global Healing Center.

    Thank you,

    • Dear Rachel,

      While they are not the same product, VeganZyme or Serrapeptase would be vegetarian/vegan alternative to Wobenzym N to continue to learn more about. VeganZyme has not been studied in relation to fertility health as Wobenzym N.

    I used wobenzym after laparoscopy in October and in December I got pregnant. Pregnancy was ectopic and stopped progressing to 6 weeks without methotrexate. My doctor said I could try again after the first cycle. May take further wobenzym? How many pills I take?

    • Dear Sim,

      I am sorry for your loss!

      It is up to you whether you try Wobenzym N or not, but it would be worth considering. It along with the tips in our guide Healing From Ectopic Pregnancy may all be supportive.

      While I understanding wanting to try again soon, do also consider allowing time for the body to heal and for any natural therapies you decide to try to be as effective as they can be.

      Best wishes!

    I am 44. Just got married 5 months ago. Found out I have multiple uterine fibroids with a submucosal which supposedly prevents pregnancy. Have been taking serrapeptase, DIM, Vit D, Chinese herbs for the last 2 months. Was scheduled for surgery and then found out I’m actually 2 months pregnant! Should I keep taking systemic enzyme therapy? Just Wobenzym or in conjunction with serrapeptase? Any advice is appreciated. I want my baby to have the best chance possible!

    • Dear Sheila,


      It truly would be best to discuss the continued use of systemic or proteolytic enzymes with your doctor, a midwife or naturopath with whom you can work one on one. I am sure your healthcare provider will monitor fibroid growth, your health and the fetus’ health throughout pregnancy.

      Our guide, Should You Continue Nutritional Supplements During Pregnancy?, shares a link to a study showing that Wobenym N has been shown to be helpful throughout pregnancy to help prevent recurrent miscarriage due to immunological imbalances.

      Many women have healthy pregnancies with uterine fibroids, however there are some risks, but your doctor can help you to determine if these may be a problem for you or not. However the fibroids are addressed in pregnancy, following a Pregnancy Diet is important… a diet that includes a daily whole food prenatal multivitamin and quality omega-3 supplement like Cod Liver Oil in part because of its anti-inflammatory action

      If you experience pain or bleeding in pregnancy at any time, contact your doctor immediately!

Should i continue to have WN during periods? or should i stop having WN untill my period stops. I don’t wanna see OB GYN as they will give Birth control to stop. Since i want to get pregnant.

    • Dear Sara,

      Wobenzym N can be taken all cycle long, even during menstruation if menstruation is not heavy. If it is every heavy, pause taking Wobenzym N until menstruation returns to “normal”.

      Has menstruation changed since you began Wobenzym N? Was it absent before beginning the program you are on? Have you had your thyroid health rechecked since beginning the supplements? It could be that more or less Levothyroxine is needed. It is best to have support from your healthcare provider in determining this (you can say no to the suggested use of birth control should it be suggested).

      It may be most helpful however to consider working one on one with a fertility herbalist who can guide you in the right direction, on the right program, for your specific fertility health needs. This if offered through a Fertility Consultation.

    • Dear Michal,

      Wobenzym N is marketed for joint health. It is important to remember, other sites that sell Wobenzym N, are not focused on fertility issues, that is likely to be why you aren’t seeing the information we share.

      The makers of Wobenzym N, Garden of Life have provided this link to studies where this product has been used in studies for infertility, you can read that here:

      We sell Wobenyzm N as our #1 choice for Systemic Enzyme Therapy. Systemic Fertility Enzyme Therapy may be beneficial for those experiencing blocked fallopian tubes, ovarian cysts, scar tissue, Asherman’s syndrome, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, immunologically induced recurrent miscarriage or miscarriage due to blood clotting issues.

    • Hi Fleur,

      Wobenzym N is fine to take all month long, unless you have heavy menstrual bleeding. If you have heavy menstrual bleeding, avoid taking it during your period. If you wish to take Wobenzym N while on medical fertility treatments, you will need to get your doctor’s approval. If you are going for a surgical medical fertility treatment, discontinue use of Wobenzym N 2 weeks prior to the surgery.

    I am currently in a process of IVF with donor egg and preparing for FET. I will soon start the estrogen treatment to grow the endometrium, and I was wondering if taking Wobenzym in the same time and the days after embryo transfer was safe or if it could interfere with the treatment.
    I found out about Wobenzym as I had started the treatment already 2 months ago but had to interrupt as I was found with Polyps in the uterus, and got them removed. Thought it could help now to not have polyps growing again. Thanks a lots
    PS : I would not rely on my fertility doctor to answer the question, as I know they will not even look at the product and advise to not take anything as they don’t know it

    I have scar tissue on the cervix which in my opinion is preventing me from getting pregnant (the sperm can’t get through) Can Wobenzym N help to break down this scar tissue?

    • Dear Amy,

      The systemic enzyme blend Wobenzym N is known to help in part support the body’s ability to break down fibrin (the substance that makes up scar tissue). Wobenzy N is also known to help support the body’s natural inflammation response, providing relief for occasional discomfort in the reproductive system and its natural ability to reduce tissue buildup in the uterus, as well as to encourage normal circulation to the reproductive system.

    I just started taking Wobenzym N about a week ago and its given me moderate intestinal cramping and bloating. It the cramping usually occurs in the afternoon after lunch time. I know that it is the Wobenzym N because nothing else about my diet has changed. I also read reviews on amazon of other people having this issue.

    I’m taking it as suggested on the bottle: 3 tablets in the morning 45 minutes before breakfast and in the evening 45 minutes before dinner.

    Any idea why it would cause cramping?

    • Dear Dee,

      I have not heard from our customers of intestinal cramping or bloating as a result of taking Wobenzym N. I am sorry you are experiencing this! I have however read on other sites that very rare cases of minor gastrointestinal upset have been reported. What is thought is that for some people taking a protease enzyme blend, stomach pain may be experienced when eating. The amount being taken could be lowered to see if that helps, or the product stopped for several days before trying it again.

      I hope an alteration in the dose helps!

      Drinking that much water helps to ensure that the tablets get where they need to be in the digestive track to be broken down and utilized by the body correctly. Also, the tables have a special coating to allow for this as well and the water helps to dissolve the coating.

    • Dear Barbara,

      I have not ever heard or read account of Wobenzym N impairing vitamin D absorption. These enzymes are the same enzymes the body naturally contains. This may be a better questions asked of the makers of Wobenzym N or your healthcare provider.

      There are a variety of reasons for a person’s vitamin D levels to be low, from poor nutrition and lack of exposure to sunlight to an underlying health condition. Learn more in our article Fertility and Vitamin D – The Connection.

      Systemic Enzyme Therapy using Wobenzym N has been found to work to support the bodies inflammation response, healthy function of the immune system, break down fibrin (the substance that makes up a scar), and improve blood flow. This therapy does not directly effect FSH and AMH levels, but can be used by those with high FSH and low AMH levels who also need support in the ways I just mentioned.

It’s helped tremendously for my endo but since I won’t be menstruating while pregnant, I may not need it. If I do decide to stop, do you have any suggestions on how wean off? Or do you just stop altogether? The last thing I’d want to do is shock my system in any way while pregnant. Thanks!

    I started taking wobenzym n about two months ago now, the second month I began feeling aching and passion in my uterine area… back story we have been ttp for 3 years and no luck, I have massive pain during period and extensive family history of endometriosis, working on getting diagnosed… after the first month taking wob my cycle was very manageable, barely any pain and nice flow. This month I have had intermediate aching, pain and swelling in my lower abdomen. I was tested for pcos and it came back negative.

    Im wondering if it is normal to have this pain/aching when taking wob. Could it be breaking down the scare tissue?

      Hi Alisha!

      This could be a sign that your body is responding to the ways in which you are supporting it. There is actually no way for me to know if in fact it is breaking down scar tissue. There are so many variables that play a part in the menstrual experience that it is hard to say if Wobenyam N alone is causing what you are experiencing. It is important to realize that systemic enzyme blends work slowly over time. Wobenzym N is best used for 1-3 months consistently for most conditions.

      In health~ Liz

    Thank you so much for the response on the wobenzyme question. You are very helpful! A little about me , I’m 34 and have had children in my lower 20s with my first husband, been getting pg almost constantly for the last 7 yrs. Always end in a miscarriage. I do have one more question. I have always been anemic and also have a blood clotting problem. Been to countless drs and we dont get anywhere and the losses just continue! I’ve been taking the wobenzyme for almost 3 months now and am still experiencing repeat losses. I get pregnant literally every other month, just can’t keep these babies in! Would you recommend a baby aspirin a day to help with clotting along with the wobenzyme? Or do you suggest another natural product to help with that? I love natural herbs. Would an herb like dong quai be OK to take if I become pg and continue taking it throughout? Thank again!

    • Hi Amanda,

      Have you read our article on Recurrent Miscarriages? If not, that may be very helpful in guiding you to the best natural therapies for those specific issues you describe.

      That article lists many things to consider regarding miscarriage. If you don’t address the root cause of the anemia and blood clotting issues (what may be causing that for you….MTHFR gene defect, homocysteine levels, or the anemia itself?) systemic enzymes are only going to be able to help you so much. They are supportive for blood clotting issues, but don’t address the root cause.

      You have a lot going on and to fully address your issues, I would suggest you consider a consultation with one of our fertility herbalists. You can receive personalized guidance based on your unique fertility issues. Since you are wanting a clear, natural approach to your fertility health, our consultations sound like a great fit!

      I am sorry to hear of your recurrent losses. This article on honoring your losses may also help you to move forward: Sending you lots of love!

    Question concerning Wobenzyme N. Would I take it all month long? Through ovulation and menstruation? I’ve read that it can stop ovulation because inflammation is required in order for ovulation to take place. I’ve been taking it for two months ( whole cycle) now. Also would you recommend men who have had vasectomy reversals and have anti sperm antibodies to also take Wobenzyme N? He’s already taking tribulus , multi vitamin , all bee products, should he also take WN? Would it help men as well as woman? Thanks for any response.

    • Hi Amanda,

      Yes, systemic enzymes are best taken all month long. This type of therapy doesn’t stop the inflammation response, it helps to promote proper inflammation response, so there isn’t an overactive response. This therapy has been shown to also mediate immune system response, which may be helpful for antisperm antibodies. Systemic enzymes are fine for both men and women. I am not sure that systemic enzymes are going to be effective for your husband or not. Vasectomy reversal is typically quite successful and I am not sure that systemic enzyme therapy would be necessary for that in regard to scar tissue development, though it may be.

      Studies show that the herb Tribulus is most effective for antisperm antibodies when both partners to take it.

  38. Avatar suffering from PID 2 years ago and the doctor said that my organ are sticking to each other which i believe what they call the inflamation and scar tissue..the infection however has been treated by using antibiotic.

    my question is, can my block falopion tube can be open after consuming this wobenzyme if let say i want to consume it for about 4 months?

    What brand of Wobenzym N do you recommend. Do you recommend “Garden of life” or “Mucos Pharma”.

    • It is my understanding that Mucos Pharma is the manufacturer/maker of Wobenzym N and Garden of Life is the U.S. distributor. They are the same.

    I have an ovarian cyst and having no menstural flow this month. i have consulted two different doctors just to confirm ovarian cyst , both are athentic doctors. One has suggested to take family planning medicines(Famila 28). while the otherone has recomended wobenzyme. I cant make decision what should i take, whereas i dont want to take hormones(famila28), Should i take wobenzyme safely, will it cover my problem and will it cause any fertility problem in future,I m also married since two year and having no kids as my husbend was having varicocoel, now he is recovering.

    • Hi great scientist,

      Wobenzym N may be a great choice, but it may be best to follow a complete program for ovarian cysts that also works to balance hormones. Ovarian cyst are often due to hormonal imbalance. While Wobenzym may greatly help to reduce inflammation, scar tissue and adhesion formation, while promoting healing, this product does not address hormonal balance.

    Do you know what the protocol is for using Wobenzym N with IVF. Some sites say you have to stop Wobenzym prior to the transfer. And what is the daily protocol (your video says three times a day the bottle says 3 tables twice a day.)
    3 Ivfs, miscarriages on 2 of them… implantation failure on the 3rd… and 2 LITs in Mexico later… we are hoping this would really help us.

    Thank you

    • Hi MJ in Jersey,

      Suggested Usage: Adults take three (3) tablets, twice daily, on an empty stomach at least 45 minutes before meals with water.

      Advanced Usage: Adults may gradually increase to 12 per day by taking 3 tablets 4 times per day on an empty stomach.

      If you would like to continue Wobenzym into pregnancy (after transfer), you will need to show your doctor the study that proves it’s safety for use in pregnancy and get his/her approval to continue it.

      Best Wishes,

    Hello. I have suffered 6 pregnancy losses. Three tubal and three miscarriage. Me and my husband have been trying for years to concieve. Now i have had the cesarian and i have scar tissues, one fallopian tube left that had two previous tubal pregnancies. I believe i am infertile and have tried all i could and cried all i could. What do you recommend to help me? I bought wobenzyme…but how do you know when it’s working?

  45. Are there ingredients in Wobenzym®N that may affect my food allergies?

    • Hi Ian bell,

      You did not list what food allergies you have. If you are allergic to any of the following, it is best to avoid this product: Pineapple, papaya, rutin, trypsin, and chymotrypsin (derived enzyme from pancreas).

    Hello just wondering if this is safe to take if i have a hypothyroid condition and taking synthroid? Also can I take a multivitamin along with it and DMI? Which supplements are good and safe to take for my husband to fortify or strengthen the quality of his sperm? He doesn’t have any health issues but just wanted to check out any supplements that might naturally aid in aiming at my fertility. What is zinc good for? Thanks for your help. Thanks. God bless you all! Blessings!

    • Hi Sandra,

      It may be okay to take Wobenzym N with hypothyroid, but it would be best to get your doctor’s approval first. Wobenzym has been shown safe to take with multivitamins and DIM. You can learn the best diet tips for sustaining men’s fertility here at this link: You can learn ways to improve sperm health by reading our Men’s Fertility article, your husband may or not benefit from the tips in this article.

      Having a zinc deficiency can actually reduce testosterone levels; for men with low testosterone – zinc was shown to raise testosterone and increase fertility. Zinc deficiencies are some of the most common deficiencies found in both men and women. The reason for this is that zinc can be damaged when foods are cooked or processed. So it is important to eat a diet that is at least 50% raw foods (this is easy to do, take a look at the daily diet suggestions later in this article). Foods rich in zinc are meats like beef tenderloin, lamb, oysters, shrimp, venison (deer), but since we do not want to eat meat raw some sources of easy to get/eat sources of zinc are sesame seeds, raw pumpkin seeds, and green peas.

      Best Wishes,
