Proteases also play a key role in the body’s immune function. They can be taken between meals to assist in immune imbalances, inflammatory conditions, circulatory disorders, heart disease, stroke, heavy metal toxicity, constipation, water retention, blood clots, skin disorders and cancer.

Protein is made up of about twenty amino acids. The body can make some amino acids but there are nine, which it can’t make or can’t make in adequate quantity. Each proteiolytic enzyme works on a specific amino acid.



Examples are trypsin that splits the amino acids lysine and arginine and Chyniotrypsin that splits phenyalanine, tyrosine and tryptophan.
