Enzymes are crucial for human life. Enzymes, referred to as catalysts, combine with vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients to prompt the physiological processes that occur throughout the body. Some examples of the chemical changes that enzymes help promote are digestion, energy products, blood coagulation, absorption, circulation, etc. Enzymes can be divided into categories according to the reactions that they provoke. The enzymes, which are protein molecules, alter the rate of reactions according to the substrates (molecules) with which they combine. There are 3,000 kinds of enzymes that work within our body to speed up or regulate various processes, primarily digestion. There is also evidence of some enzymes having anti-inflammatory and anticarcinogenic abilities. Some enzymes that are available include alpha-galactosidase, amylase, bromelain, cellulase, chymotrypsin, lactase, pancreatin, pancrelipase, papain, pepsin, trypsin, superoxide dismutase, wobe-mugos, and wobenzyme. Enzymes promote healthy well-being with a properly functioning body.
There are many different types of enzymes that may all have different reactions to other substances. It is important to read all information on labels before taking anything. Enzymes should not be taken with acarbose, anticoagulants (warfarin), or antithrombotic agents (aspirin) as the effectiveness of the drugs is decreased. Enzymes, especiall pancreatin and pancrelipase, should not be taken with folic acid as the absorption of both supplements is reduced. Also, the activity of soy oligosaccharides is hindered by enzymes and the two supplements should not be used simultaneously.
Each enzyme has a unique chemical make-up that may interact with different individuals in various ways. Please check all labels and consult a health care professional before use of any drug or supplement. Some reported side effects for different enzymes: alpha-galactosidase may cause cramping or diarrhea and in allergic reactions a rash or pruritis; amylase has reported allergy-type effects such as a rash or pruritis; bromelain has been connected to nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, cramping, and occasionally metrorrhagia and menorrhagia; pancreatin may cause diarrhea, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting; pancrelipase has seen diarrhea, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, constipation, melena, and perianal irritation and in extreme cases hyperuricemia and hyperuricosuria; wobe-mugos/ wobenzyme may cause diarrhea, abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting.
