Food Enzymes In Digestion & Absorption

Digestive System Enzyme Supplements Amylase Lipase Cellulase Amyloglucosidase Protease Lactobacillus AcidophilusINutriteck Health Through Natural Nutritionn general foods must be broken down (hydrolyzed) or simplified chemically before they can be assimilated by the body. This Is true of the carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, It is not true of water and inorganic ions, for they pass from the digestive tract and are absorbed In their original form. This simplification or breakdown of food Is accomplished by the action of different enzymes, which are active In the mouth, esophagus, stomach and the small and large intestines.

Scientists estimate that the human body produces over 100,000 different types of enzymes each one accomplishing an entirely Independent function in sustaining life. The enzymes produced In the pancreas and small intestine which are so important in digestion are Protease (act on protein), lipase (act on fat) and Amylase (act on starch). These enzymes catalyze (bring about) the hydrolysis of native protein to amino acids, starches to simple sugar, and fats to glycerol and fatty acids.It is probable in the course of these digestive reactions that minerals and vitamins of food a stuffs are also made more assimilable. This is certainly true of fat-soluble vitamins, which are not absorbed unless fat digestion is proceeding normally.

The physiological activity of man changes greatly with advancing years. Age brings In a gradual retardation of cell division, cell excretions and overall body function. Studies have shown that 35 % of people over 60 years old have some sort of digestive malfunction. In fact disturbances of the all alimentary tract rank second only to cardiovascular disorders as causes of morbidity in the aged.

Good health at any age, and especially in the old, depends on proper nutrition. Since efficient digestion Is a prerequisite for adequate absorption then if sufficient enzymes to breakdown food are not produced by the body In the pancreas, stomach, and small intestine then complications such as weight loss, flatulence, chronic constipation, non infectious diarrhea and abdominal discomfortwill occur.

The Function of Enzymes

To understand the function of an enzyme without getting into a complex discussion of molecular chemistry simply consider the enzyme as similar to a knife slicing a loaf of bread. The knife, "undergoing no change" acts as a catalyst causing a "chemical reaction" The breaking down of the loaf of bread - Thereby putting the bread into a more useful form. Essentially, enzymes accomplish what the knife does in our example. Their catalytic action breaks down food into particles small enough to be absorbed and used by the body.

To fully a appreciate how important and efficient enzymes are, consider the following. In order for a chemist to break down the white of an egg, which is protein in nature, he must first add to it about ten tines its weight in concentrated acid. He must then boil this mixture for twenty hours!

Polyenzyme Plus

Is a combnation of different fungal and vegetable produced enzymes designed to supplement the bodies naturally produced digestive enzymes. It consists of Vegetable Protease (Papain), Acid Stable Protease, Fungal Protease (as pancreatic protease), Fungal Lipase, Fungal Amylase, and Fungal Cellulase. The combination of the above enzymes and the activity and strength in which they are formulated will insure that digested food will be properly hydrolyzed and absorbed. Since the above enzymes are stable and active in both the acid medium of the stomach mid the neutral environment of the small intestine they do not need a special treatment or coating for stability. All of the enzymes in Polyenzyme Plus are considered GRAS by the FDA.

The Protease contained in one 400 mg Polyenzyme Plus tablet (capsule) is capable of hydrolysing (breaking down) 125 gms of casein (milk protein) in one hour at 37 degrees C.

The Amylase in one 400 mg tablet will hydrolyze 100 gms of starch/hour at 37 degrees C. This amount starch is equivalent to the starch in three potatoes.

The Lipase in one 400 mg tablet will hydrolyze and produce 60 moles of free fatty acid from fat in 1 hour at 37 degrees C.

The Cellulase & Hemi-Cellulase are added to the formula even though humans do not produce cellulase enzymes because they assist in breaking down the cellular wall of vegetable foods. This is important since it avoids excessive fermentation by intestinal microorganisms. The Cellulase & Hemi - Cellulase in one 400 mg tablet will digest 530 parts of dry vegetable solids for each partofenzyme in 1 hour at 37 degrees C. It should be remembered thatonly about 25% of vegetable matter is cellulose.

The Plus factor in Polyenzyme Plus Is the incorporation with the enzymes of a pure strain of Lactobacillus Acidophilus. It has been known for many years that the Lactobacillus microbe plays an important role In human nutrition. One only has to look at the large number of people in the world who consume fermented type dairy products (yogurt, cheeses) on a daily basis to realize the beneficial effect this bacteria has on our digestive process. Some experts on age feel the longevity of the people in south west Russia can be attributed to the quantity of fermented type mile products they consume.

In the intestines there are numerous types of bacteria and it has been estimated that 25 % of the dry weight of feces is composed of intestinal flora. Essentially in the normal adult, and the following will vary from person to person based on the diet he consumes, the prominent forms of bacteria present are gram negative coliform bacilli, gram negative anaerobes called Bacteroides, Clostridia, Enterococci, Streptococci and small numbers of Loctobacilli, Proteus, Pseudomonas and Yeast.

Although the numbers of Lactobacilli are known to be small they play an important part in maintaining the pH of the intestine by producing lactic acid from carbohydrates particularly Glycogen.

The production of acid helps to maintain a normal flora by suppressing the growth of acid sensitive microbes which could proliferate at a higher pH and produce various toxic substances such as choline; related toxic amine and cause in some cases acute or chronic enteritis, diarrhea, constipation and indigestion.

Since the number of lactobacilli in the intestines is small it is essential that the human body maintain proper level or number of this particular culture. When a person because of some type of illness requires oral antimicrobial drugs they suppress the drugs susceptible components of the fecal flora and allow drug resistant strains such as staphylococci and aerobacter to become predominate in the intestine. This in turn causes the later bacteria to produce toxins and gases and causes the loss of the benefits derived from normal bacterial activity in the intestinal synthesis of certain vitamins particularly vitamin K and certain members of the B complex.
