Actizyme 90caps Metabolism

  [1] Metabolism is the set of chemical reactions that happen in living organisms to maintain life. These processes allow organisms to grow and reproduce, maintain their structures, and respond to their environments. Metabolism is usually divided into two categories. Catabolism breaks down organic matter, for example to harvest energy in cellular respiration. Anabolism, uses energy to construct components of cells such as proteins and nucleic acids.

[2] The chemical reactions of metabolism are organized into metabolic pathways, in which one chemical is transformed through a series of steps into another chemical, by a sequence of enzymes. Enzymes are crucial to metabolism because they allow organisms to drive desirable reactions that require energy and will not occur by themselves, by coupling them to spontaneous reactions that release energy. As enzymes act as catalysts they allow these reactions to proceed quickly and efficiently. Enzymes also allow the regulation of metabolic pathways in response to changes in the cell's environment or signals from other cells.

[3] The metabolism of an organism determines which substances it will find nutritious and which it will find poisonous. For example, some prokaryotes use hydrogen sulfide as a nutrient, yet this gas is poisonous to animals. The speed of metabolism, the metabolic rate, also influences how much food an organism will require.

The enzyme preparations are derived from non-animal sources and do not contain artificial colours, flavours, sweeteners, preservatives, chemical additives, wheat, yeast, or animal derivatives. The enzymes in Actizyme are carefully prepared to ensure the maximum possible
activity. This is achieved through strict quality control procedures including raw material assays to verify activity. The enzymes are pharmaceutical grade and contain no mycotoxins, fungi or other contaminants and no magnesium stearate has been used during processing.

The enzymes used are derived from non-animal sources and are blended to remain active throughout a broad pH range. (pH 2-12) This means they retain their activity in the acid conditions of the upper and the more alkaline conditions of the lower gastrointestinal tract.
Another consideration in choosing the right blend of enzymes is to utilize enzymes that are active at body temperature (37°C). This is an important but often overlooked factor in enzyme preparations. For example, a protease may have an activity of 60,000 units but only at a temperature of 25°C. At 37°C (body temperature), the same enzyme may only have an activity of 2,000 units, if any at all. The units used to describe the activity of enzymes in Actizyme have been normalized to show their exact activity at 37°C, human body temperature.
