Cytolyse - Actions
protease 1, protease: protease enzymes hydrolyze large protein molecules into smaller polypeptides and amino acids. If protein is not properly digested, it cannot be utilized by the body to build and repair tissue such as muscles, blood, bone, skin and internal organs. protein is the main constituent of all cell membranes. Structural proteins provide the contractile mechanism of muscle and support characteristics of collagen found in connective tissue and spinal discs. In order to maintain a strong immune system, protein is needed for the production of antibodies, fibrin and phagocytic enzymes, all part of the body's defense mechanisms. The inability to properly digest protein is not a simple problem. Since protein is required for the production of digestive enzymes, an inability to digest protein probably means no food is being digested with optimal efficiency.
It is known that proteases are able to dissolve almost all proteins as long as they are not components of living cells. Normal, living cells are protected against lysis by an inhibitor mechanism. Viruses are cell parasites consisting of nucleic acids covered by a protein film which, in their extracellular phase, do not show any of the characteristics of life. Studies have found that the protein cover of the viruses during their extracellular phase can be dissolved or at least inactivated by proteolytic activity which leads to a loss of viral infectivity. Therefore, the elevation of the proteolytic enzymes in the blood and plasma represents an efficient means to control viral infections. This type of therapy has been found to inhibit the infectivity of several types of viruses in man including six different influenza Type A viruses and cold viruses. Although bacteria and parasites cannot be inactivated directly by exogenous proteolytic enzymes (due to a protective mechanism in their cell membranes), proteolytic enzymes can break down undigested protein, cellular debris and toxins in the blood, sparing the immune system from this task. For example, protease breaks down undigested dietary protein that enters the blood through openings made in the intestinal wall by toxins and mycelia of candida. This spares the blood's lymphocytes the task of cleansing the blood, allowing the immune system to concentrate its full action on controlling the invasion of candida and other organisms.
protease assists in breaking up waste protein that occurs in an area of injury and also breaks up the protein portion of fibrin mass (thrombocyte aggregation) in order to complete the breakdown of all activated fibrins. protease 1 is coordinated with a second protease which does a more complete job of actually breaking down proteins to amino acids so that the body can either re-assimilate or eliminate as needed. Glyco-proteins rebuild disrupted connective tissue and eliminate injured connective tissues. They also determine the efficiency of the body in rebuilding damaged disk areas.
potassium Citrate, potassium phosphate: provides a buffering system to disallow continued persistence of acid waste (uric acid, lactic acid, etc.) that is created from injury, faulty metabolism, enzyme insufficiencies, etc. Alleviates the blood aggregation related to trauma, stress or other forms of abnormal clotting or collection of acid in the area of stressed tissue.
Magnesium Chelate: Contributes to the buffering activity.
Niacinamide: Vitamin B3 allows the body to prevent a loss of circulation - especially peripheral circulation in capillaries. A well proven factor and needed in any formulation dealing with circulation problems.
Lycopene Tomato Extract, Valerian Root: Natural anti-inflammatory action. Both are known to have a relaxing effect on smooth muscle tissue due to the effect on pH balance. Also aids in combating and removing excess uric acid. A muscle relaxant and good for nervousness.
Whole Licorice Root: Included to assist in soothing the GI tract and improving the body's ability to accept a potent enzyme formula and to tolerate and assimilate without conflict.
Chelate Activated Delivery System (CADS): Necessary to assure no barriers to assimilation. All of the minerals and other co-factors that were in the nutrient compound naturally are added back into the formulation. Minerals are chelated (patented process).
Assured Enzyme Activity (AEA): To assure that nothing is depleted or leached from the body with high amounts of enzymes.
Lipase: Aids in breaking down fatty acids.
