Something I would like to discuss on here with the experienced guys is proteolytic enzyme supplements. I don't know if anyone on here is aware but there is something called systemic proteolytic enzymes. These are enzymes which are meant to get into your blood stream as opposed to digestive enzymes which is a different type that is meant to help digest food. Some of the systemic enzymes are Serrapeptase and Nattokinase. I believe Bromelain in pineapple might also be a systemic enzyme. I also think Grapefruit Seed Extract might be a systemic enzyme.

If you go online you will see a lot of supplements containing systemic enzymes being advertised as scar tissue destroyers. They are supposedly able to break down fibrin. Vitalzym is one example. In order to supposedly get into your blood stream they have to be enteric coated pills. Otherwise your stomach acid will destroy them. I believe the official name for using these things might be called systemic enzyme therapy.

I'm not aware any studies that support this idea of systemic enzyme supplements destroying scar tissue though. Does anyone know more about this? This is just a guess on my part. Because if Peyronie's Disease is scar tissue, then maybe something that can attack scar tissue can help.

I have bought a bottle of Vitalzy, Serrapeptase, and Nattokinase and am going to take them every day and see if it helps. There is actually a systemic enzyme product called Trebinase that specifically advertises as a treatment for Peyronie's. It's on Amazon and they have a website. Very expensive though.

Does anyone think that Peyronie's Disease is similar to Pulmonary Fibrosis? That is a scar tissue damage to lungs disease. It seems to me like they might share some similarities. Maybe the treatments used for Pulmonary Fibrosis could help us? Fibrenza is a supplement that advertises as a treatment for PF.
31. Western PA. Developed Peyronies Disease seemingly after a few weeks of SSRI (Prozac) use. Always had slight left curve. But now very bad.

Did taking nattokinase etc help? I'm going to try it as well.
- mid 20s
- bend started November 2020
- acute phase? Some pain, not much, but bend to the left 30 to 40 degrees and left side starting to shrink
- not doing traction yet, planning on trying restoreX

26 y. o. Peyronie since 2020: upward congenital curvature from the bottom - 20*; twist and curve to the left - 25*; two visible dents on the left side; multiple plaques everywhere; no pain

Vitamins; Tadafil; traction/bending; VED - nothing worked
