Shogun Zenzym – Multi Enzymes

Zenzym is a Multi-enzyme product that immediately reinvigorates worn-out media with swift breakdown of dead root matter and other untoward residue left from previous grows. This media recycling powerhouse consists of a mixture of cellulase, xylanase, pectinase and glucanase for the breakdown of dead root material and releases nutrients for the plant while promoting root growth.  

When your media is used for the full length of the growing cycle, it will undoubtedly be left with debris and old plant matter shed by that harvest. Zenzym works by accelerating the break down of dead root matter. Consequently, Zenzym helps plants realise their uptake potential, by freeing up absorption sites on root surfaces. up nutrients and increases the resistance against diseases. Enzymes are substances that speed up the reactions in living organisms.

Zenzym is a specially crafted enzyme product that is designed to give your root zone a deep clean. It consists of multiple enzymes that have different roles when breaking down dead root matter. This includes cellulase, xylanase, pectinase, beta-glucanase and hemicellulase to name a few. The division of labour between these enzymes are what makes our product so efficient at breaking down dead roots fast.

The Science

What are Enzymes? – Enzymes are organic molecules which have biological activity, they do not take part in the reaction, they only add to speed them up. They are essentially catalysts. They are proteins which have a specific shape and structure, which allows the combination with specific activation molecule. This process works like a lock and key, as many other molecules may fit into the enzyme, they will not activate them. 

This product originates from Trichoderma sp and Humicola sp of fungus, and contains many impactful enzymes, here are 5 of the most important ones in the formula. 

Cellulase – Breaks down cellulose, the starchy material in plant matter, by a process known as hydrolysis. Glucose or other sugars are produced as a result.
Xylanase – Breaks down one of the major components in plant cell walls, the polysaccharide xylan into xylose.
Pectinase – Breaks down pectin, a polysaccharide found in plant cell walls. 
Beta glucanase – The enzyme aids in autolysis of yeast cells to release polysaccharides and mannoproteins.
Ferulic acid esterase (Hemicellulase) – Releases Ferulic acid from cell walls. Ferulic acid aids with cell wall rigidity, acting as a crosslink between the lignin’s and polysaccharides found in lignocellulose of plant cell walls. This works best in the presences of xylanase and other enzymes.
You can start using Zenzym from your rooting cube all the way through your vegetative growth cycle. You can continue all the way through flowering until final flush. Remember Zenzym can be used outside of the growth cycle to prepare or recondition media as well.
Can be used with organics but don’t use with hydrogen peroxide.
Zenzym can also be applied to used coco to recondition the media.
