Premier Protease - from Premier Research Labs (PRL)
Premiere Protease helps support the proper digestion of protein and helps activate macrophages and other natural killer cells. It plays a role in better immune system response, better blood glucose levels, and improved mineral absorption. Protease helps reduce blood triglyceride levels and may even help prevent tooth decay.
In digestion, enzymes are produced by the body to help completely break down food for proper absorption. Enzymes in the body are critical to all known life processes. Without enzymes, life could not exist.
Raw Food Vs. Cooked Food:
All uncooked foods naturally contain a wide variety of enzymes. When we eat uncooked food, these enzymes are highly active and promote the digestion of the food itself. Recent research has now shown that our digestive enzyme systems gradually wear out with use, especially if we eat a predominantly cooked food diet. The process of cooking food destroys the enzymes inherent to the food, which requires our body to produce larger amounts of these enzymes in order to digest the food. A lifetime of eating mostly cooked food hastens the failure of our natural enzyme production systems.
When cooking food, the higher the heat, the worse the destruction of enzymes. For example, whole wheat bread baked at 350 degrees requires our bodies to make far more digestive enzymes than eating soup that was heated only at boiling temperature (212 degrees F.).
The Digestive Process:
To digest food properly, especially cooked food, the body first releases ptyalin in the mouth as you chew the food. Next, as the food enters the stomach, the stomach secretes hydrochloric acid and pepsin to continue breaking down the food. Then, the food travels to the small intestine, where it will spend several hours being digested. Upon entering the small intestine, the pancreas releases 3 main digestive enzymes: protease to digest protein; lipase to digest fat; and amylase to digest carbohydrates.
Unfortunately, the ability of the pancreas to produce these enzymes slowly declines with age. The more cooked food we consume, the sooner the body’s capacity to make enzymes declines. In addition the body’s ability to produce enzymes can diminish dramatically with stress, illness and exposure to toxic chemicals.
