"People who are lactose intolerant do not produce this enzyme. For this reason, L. acidophilus supplements may be beneficial for these individuals."2 LACTOBACILLUS CASEI ţ"Lactobacillus casei is effective in the treatment of intestinal infections. It inhibits tumors in mice and increases immunity in humans against bacterial and viral infections. L. casei encourages proper gastrointestinal function and elimination and maintains the balance of the gastrointestinal terrain."3 ţ"Oral administration of Lactobacillus casei has been found to enhance innate immunity by stimulating the activity of. . ."

"Enzyme—An enzyme is a protein found in living cells that brings about chemical changes. A coenzyme works with an enzyme to produce a particular reaction. Some of the supplements that I discuss are either enzymes or coenzymes. How to Take Supplements Unless otherwise noted, you should take your supplements after meals, since a full stomach enables your body to better absorb the nutrients. Some supplements, however, such as digestive enzymes, should be taken prior to meals, and in these rare instances, I will note the exception."

"Back in his day, enzyme supplements did not yet exist. I am convinced that had they been available, Dr. Walker would have valued them as he would a winning lottery ticket! As precious as powdered gold, enzymes are extremely valuable for the Raw Foodist. Simply said, they prolong life! Although best known for their power as a digestive aid, their hidden potential far surpasses that function. There are two types of enzymes produced by and in our body: (1) Metabolic enzymes - which we depend on for life (2) Digestive enzymes ?"

"This enzyme is manufactured commercially today through fermentation, but was originally found in the silkworm intestine. The Silkworm uses it for instantly dissolving the hard cocoon to allow the moth to escape and fly away. It also uses it to help digest the tough mulberry leaves that it feeds on. This truly is the "2nd Gift from the Silkworm." Serrapeptase digests non-living tissue, blood clots, cysts, and arterial plaque and inflammation in all forms. The uses are wide ranging and cover just about every condition that is affected by inflammation and/or non-living tissue."

"Is it safe for him to take this enzyme to keep any further blood clots from developing? I already take Serrapeptase for cardiovascular problems. Yes it is safe for him. I would like to offer some other advice if I may. While there may be a genetic reason for his condition, factors that will make it worse are invariably common to many diseases. It is now thought that the cause of diseases is chronic inflammation. Chronic inflammation results in thick blood."

"Sprouting of the grain significantly increases the protein, vitamin, and enzyme content of the breads, while complex starches in the grain are converted to natural sugars, providing the body with an easily digested rich energy source. At Sunnyvale, because they use the whole grain, the breads contain 100% of the bran fiber and wheat germ of the original grain, naturally producing typically almost double the fiber content of everyday bread. The resulting bread is highly nutritious, traditional, filling, as well as full of flavor. Eat Right For Your Type: Research in the USA by Dr."

"Cystic Breast Disease In another double-blind study, the anti-inflammatory enzyme, Serrapeptase, was evaluated in a group of 70 patients with evidence of cystic breast disease. These patients were randomly divided into a treatment group and a placebo group. Serrapeptase was noted to be superior to placebo for improvement of breast pain, breast swelling and induration, with 85.7% of the patients receiving Serrapeptase reporting moderate to marked improvement. No adverse reactions were reported with the use of Serrapeptase."

"The speed and quality of cell reconstruction after exercise depend in part on the body's enzyme levels. If the body does not have enough enzymes to draw on, the reconstructive process will slow, speeding signs of aging. Low enzymatic levels, due partly to stress, slow the repair of stress-related damage, using up more energy over the course of more time. That means that more stress will be created over that period than if the body had the enzymes to speed the recovery in the first place. Since it's a stress, this in turn can lower enzyme levels, creating a vicious circle."

"As with hormones, enzyme production in the body diminishes with age, leaving us reliant on diet to provide them. In the distant past, that was of little concern, as enzymes were plentiful in food. But today enzymes are not so abundant in our foods. As our fresh whole-food choices dwindle, making way for highly refined, processed options, enzymes in our foods diminish. Meanwhile, our ailments are on the rise. Coincidence? Probably not. I believe poor dietary habits and stress are again at the root of the problem."

"People with the RR genotype have two copies of the R variant of the PON1 gene, producing a PON1 enzyme that is more resistant to pesticide exposure because the enzyme helps to break down and eliminate pesticides from the body. The PON1 enzyme also varies by ethnicity. Approximately 50 percent of whites have the QQ genotype, compared with 25 to 35 percent of the Latino population and 10 to 20 percent of African Americans—making Caucasians most susceptible to the ill effects of pesticides."

"The enzyme bromelain dissolved the mucus "glue" and allowed the woman's ball to unravel by itself. Enzyme Dysfunction. An enzyme is a protein, secreted by cells, that acts as a catalyst to induce chemical changes in other substances, itself remaining apparently unchanged by the process. When there is any disturbance of normal enzyme function (including a genetic deficiency of key enzymes),this condition is called enzymopathy; but to keep it simple I've designated it merely as "enzyme dysfunction."

"Scientists at Merck and at Searle, a company later bought by Pharmacia, developed the medicines on the basis of research into cyclooxygenase, an enzyme in the body that is often referred to as Cox. Pain relievers like aspirin and ibuprofen inhibit the Cox enzymes as they reduce pain. At the same time, these drugs often wreak havoc in the stomach and, in the worst cases, cause bleeding ulcers that kill. Merck and Searle scientists developed the new drugs on the theory that there were two kinds of Cox enzymes, Cox-1 and Cox-2."

"Laboratory studies show that sulforaphane may also block an enzyme that triggers inflammation and joint pain. This is great news for those who suffer from arthritis or give their bones and joints a beating by running on hard surfaces or playing contact sports. Prolonged pressure on the joints can suppress the function of helpful phase two enzymes, but sulforaphane may regenerate and reenergize these wonderful enzymes. Your knees and elbows will thank you for eating broccoli!"

"In the few cases where liver enzyme tests were conducted, no deficiencies were found. Since each group of liver enzymes metabolizes many different drugs, when two or more drugs are overloading the same enzyme system it can lead to severe toxicity Dangerous drug combinations can usually be identified in sections labeled "Drug Interactions" in pharmacology handbooks and in the annual Physicians' Desk Reference or Drug Facts and Comparisons. Doctors very often fail to take into account that the recommended dose of a drug is based entirely on the premise that the patient is taking no other drugs."

"Heartburn can also be helped by taking digestive enzyme supplements containing HCL (hydrochloric acid). This extra acid can help with digestion and ease the load on your stomach. However, the long-term solution to this condition is found in changing your diet, not relying on digestive enzymes at each meal.

"Fred Bisci's Therapeutic Enzymes, available in the Resource Guide of this book, is the most powerful and effective enzyme blend on the market. If you are interested in a more packaged over-the-counter product, Vitalzym?could be an alternative.

When there is any disturbance of normal enzyme function (including a genetic deficiency of key enzymes),this condition is called enzymopathy; but to keep it simple I've designated it merely as "enzyme dysfunction." Several tropical fruit juices are rich in specific enzymes: pineapple, which contains bromelain; and papaya, which contains papain."

"This is done by an enzyme called an isomerase, which attaches to the molecule in such a way that it causes the bond to 'pop' from one orientation to another like donking a biscuit tin. To bind molecules, enzymes must have pockets big enough for the molecule to fit in. Consequently, enzymes tend to be a great deal larger than the things they bind to. One such isomerase is shown below, together with the much smaller coumarin that it binds. Though this is a small enzyme by biological standards, it is still a very large molecule for a * Science is about making dreams come true."

"Researchers looked at blood samples taken from these women and measured them for levels of an enzyme known as paraoxonase 1, or PON1, which is able to break down the toxic metabolites of organophosphate pesticides. That's an important function for your body to have: those who have a certain type of the PON1 enzyme are much more protected against the damaging health effects of pesticides. Having this protective feature of the PON1 enzyme depends on whether you have the Q or R form of the PON1 gene."

"Antinutrients" or enzyme inhibitors that inhibit enzymes needed for protein digestion and amino acid uptake. • Haemaggluttin, which causes red blood cells to clump together and inhibits oxygen uptake and growth. • Trypsin inhibitors that can cause pancreatic enlargement and, eventually, cancer. In the U.S., 80% of all soy beans come from genetically engineered soy plants. Phytoestrogens are potent anti-thyroid agents which are present in vast quantities in soy."

"It includes: New potatoes Parsnips Squash Sweet potatoes Oats Rice Rye Spelt Yams Turnips Whole grains: Barley Bulgur wheat raw and low-temperature cooked foods enzyme enhancement Food that has not been heated above about 118 degrees Fahrenheit is considered to be raw. High-temperature cooking and processing of food destroys the enzymes and nutrients that allow the food to be efficiently digested. Therefore, before the body can make use of cooked food, it must produce enzymes to aid in the digestion process. That takes work—an energy draw that creates a nominal amount of stress."

"Enzymes Enzymes are organic catalysts produced by animal and vegetable cells. An enzyme usually acts to break down or build up the molecules of one substance or group, since it is specific for a particular linkage. They are soluble in water, and insoluble in alcohol. Enzymes are rendered inactive in alcoholic solutions and are destroyed by high temperature. The addition of alcohol to a fresh plant extract containing glycosides prevents the destruction of the glycosides by enzymes. Flavonoids Flavonoids are a widely distributed group of plant constituents based on two phenolic rings."

"For grazing animals, the odds are that they are not going to eat enough of any single semi-toxic food to chronically overwhelm their enzyme systems. If one plant doesn't agree with them, most animals naturally just move on to another kind. Raw vegetables are loaded with these "toxins." Am I saying you shouldn't eat plenty of raw vegetables? No way. But you do need to evolve your eating pattern to allow your liver enzymes to handle the additional load of plant toxins."

"I like to think of each enzyme as a little Pac-Man chomping the used neurotransmitters. The other mechanism that prevents neurotransmitter overload is a sort of vacuum cleaner that sucks up the used messengers and deposits them back in the sending cell to be recycled for later use. These "vacuum cleaners," called reuptake pumps, are, like the Pac-Man enzymes, usually very effective in doing this cleanup. Your brain not only wants things cleaned up, it also wants them orderly and organized."

"While omega-3s partner with enzymes to reduce cancer-promoting compounds, omega-6s pair with an enzyme that promotes inflammation, encourages cells to multiply, and decreases cancer cell death. ţSome studies have shown that omega-6s can cause small decreases in HDL cholesterol levels, compared with monounsaturated fats. ţThey can spur the production of hormonelike substances called eicosanoids that can lead to inflammation and damage blood vessels, eventually leading to blood clots and constricted arteries."
