What You Eat, " but few realize it promotes a principle that is somewhat flawed. In reality, " You Are What You Assimilate. " Even the healthiest of diets are without value if the body cannot properly digest and assimilate its nutrients. To that end, vital biological catalysts called enzymes (meaning " in yeast " , since the first enzymes were discovered in yeast cells) break down protein, carbohydrates, and fats. Through this action they facilitate the digestive process and are essential to… 
Medicinal Plants: Dual source of enzymes and enzyme modulators
TLDR
Medicinal plants are a rich source of enzymes or bioactive natural products which could be used as enzyme modulators for the management of various disorders, and Papaya-derived protease commercialized as Gluten-Ade is efficient in some cases of gluten intolerance.
Characterization of lipase from Trichoderma viride and its role in the management of pancreatic exocrine insufficiency
TLDR
The enzyme has been tested for its ability in the management of pancreatic exocrine insufficiency using L-arginine induced acute pancreatitis mice models and has the ability to decrease the weight loss and enhance fat digestion in this case.
EFFECTS OF A PROTEASE SUPPLEMENT ON ECCENTRIC EXERCISE‐INDUCED MARKERS OF DELAYED‐ONSET MUSCLE SORENESS AND MUSCLE DAMAGE
TLDR
Findings provided initial evidence that the protease supplement may be useful for reducing strength loss immediately after eccentric exercise and for aiding in short-term strength recovery.

Enzyme Nutrition: The Food Enzyme Concept
TLDR
The body regains its strength and vigor, its capacity to maintain its normal weight, fight disease, and heal itself is enhanced, and the most vital nutritional discovery since that of vitamins and minerals-food enzymes is presented.
Degradation of amino acids to short-chain fatty acids in humans. An in vitro study.
TLDR
This study indicates that a part of the intestinal SCFA may originate from polypeptides, which apparently are the major source of those SCFA only found in small amounts in the healthy colon.
Effective reduction of lactose maldigestion in preschool children by direct addition of beta-galactosidases to milk at mealtime.
We examined the efficiency of two beta-galactosidase preparations--one derived from the yeast, Kluyveromyces lactis (Lactaid), the other derived from the fungus, Aspergillus oryzae (Takamine)--to
Gastrointestinal absorption of intact proteins.
TLDR
Interest has developed in the assessment of intestinal permeability to small- and medium-sized molecules, and it is hoped that equally simple methods for studying macromolecular permeability will be developed and applied.
Enzyme Replacement Therapy of Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency in Man
TLDR
Lipase activity in vitro correlated with potency in vivo for tablet and capsules, with tablets and capsules being effective in reducing steatorrhea by 56.1±9 per cent and 48.6±10 per cent.
Transport of large breakdown products of dietary protein through the gut wall.
TLDR
Quantitative studies using various proteins labelled with radioiodine show that large amounts of protein bound radioactivity may be demonstrated in the tissues after feeding the labelled protein to adult rats by stomach tube.
Absorption of exogenous and endogenousproteolytic enzymes
TLDR
The method described does not seem to be useful as a pancreatic function test because it indicates absorption of the enzymes administered rather than release of secondary enzymes from the intestinal tract.
Acid resistant lipase as replacement therapy in chronic pancreatic exocrine insufficiency: a study in dogs.
TLDR
A markedly diminished treatment volume, in the form of fungal lipase, is as effective in controlling steatorrhoea as pancreatin and may prove to be a potentially valuable therapy for patients with pancreatic insufficiency.
Coeliac disease: the abolition of gliadin toxicity by enzymes from Aspergillus niger.
TLDR
Gliadin treated with carbohydrases did not damage the intestinal mucosa of the coeliac patients and the primary structure of the gliadin proteins was not altered by the enzyme treatment.
