Alpha Galactosidase Enzyme                  Alpha Galactosidase

Contents: ALPHA GALACTOSIDASE and GLUCANASE GUMASE supplements are generally used for gas, bloating, pain and general discomfort

Function: Provides relief from gas, upset stomach and promotes digestion

ALPHA 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 and produce gas resulting in bloating, pain and general discomfort.

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 Alpha Galactosidase Units (AGSU)

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)
