ALPHA GALACTOSIDASE and GLUCANASE GUMASE supplements
are generally used for gas,
bloating, pain and general discomfort
Function: Provides relief from an
upset stomach and promotes digestion
GALATOSIDASE is an enzyme derived
from the fungus Aspergillus niger. It hydrolyzes the a 1-6
nun-reducing galactocide residues from poly and oligosaccharides in an
exo-fashion. These poly-saccharides (primarily raffinose, stacchiose,
and melibiosc) are typically found in legumes and are not digestible
in the small intestine. As these sugars are not absorbed, they pass
into the large intestine. In the large intestine, these sugars are
fermented by native microbial flora anti produce gas resulting in
bloating, pain and general

Alpha Galactosidase: Alpha-galactosidase
(AGS) is produced by the controlled fermentation of
Aspergillus niger and is characterized by its ability to hydrolyze the
chemical bonds (alpha 1-6 bonds) found in melibiose, raffinose, and
stachyose. These carbohydrates are widely distributed in plants,
mainly beans, legumes, seeds, roots, soy products, and underground
stems. AGS can be used in any application where the hydrolysis of
these particular carbohydrates is desired. AGS activity is measured in

Enzymes play a role in
virtually all biochemical processes that take place in the
human body everyday. Without them, life could not continue, even in
the presence of sufficient amounts of vitamins, minerals, and other
nutrients. Essentially, enzymes are complex protein structures that
have a specific shape and function. Their high specificity for a
particular substance (the substances that enzymes act on are often
referred to as substrates) means that a multitude of enzymes must be
produced to carry out the reactions between the many different
substrates within the body. Enzymes truly are the "engines of life."
The function of enzymes are to act as catalysts, that
is, to facilitate or speed up the reaction between products that would
otherwise not occur or would proceed at a very slow rate. too slow to
sustain life. Imagine how long it would take to digest breakfast
without enzymes, perhaps months or even years. Enzymes speed up these
reactions so that the digestion of food takes place in just hours.
Enzymes themselves fall under two categories: metabolic and digestive.
Metabolic enzymes catalyze the various chemical reactions within the
cells such as energy production and detoxification.
Digestive enzymes, as the name implies, breakdown
food, enabling nutrients to be absorbed from the gastrointestinal
tract. There are hundreds, if not thousands of metabolic enzymes but
only three basic types of digestive enzymes: amylase, protease, and
lipase. Amylase, found in the saliva and pancreatic digestive juices,
breakdown carbohydrates, particularly starches, into smaller units
called saccharides (sac-a-rides). Protease facilitate the breakdown of
proteins to amino acids and smaller protein units (such as dipeptides
and tripeptides) and are found in the stomach as well as pancreatic
secretions. Lipase breaks down fat from the diet into diglycerides,
triglycerides, free fatty acids, glycerin, and various other lipid
subunits. Lipid digestion occurs primarily in the small intestines and
to some extent in the stomach. The body is only able to absorb
nutrients that have been broken down sufficiently enough to pass
through the intestinal wall. Thus, the body is only able to absorb
nutrients with the aid of enzymes.
Carbohydrate Digestive Enzymes : Amylase enzyme,
or more specifically alpha-amylase, is a carbohydrate-degrading enzyme
produced by fermentation of Aspergillus oryzae. Alpha-amylase is
effective in acidic environments, such as the stomach, where other
amylase enzymes tend to be less stable. This particular enzyme's
activity is measured in Sandstedt Kneen Blish Units (SKBU)
