Cellulase is the enzyme that breaks down fiber. It is also the only digestive enzyme our body does not make. Fungi (Candida) is a group of organisms formerly regarded as plants lacking chlorophyll. They can either exist as single cells or make up a multi-cellular body called a mycelium, which consists of filaments known as hyphae. The cell wall of yeast and fungi contains some fungal cellulose or a compound called chitin. Chitin is a polysaccharide, or carbohydrate, which is structurally very similar to cellulose. Supplemental cellulase may help break down this "cellulose-like" chitin, aiding the body's natural systems of purification and detoxification.*
Additionally, in individuals with Candida imbalance there is often a large amount of undigested fiber in the large intestine . It is believed that the mucus that the body naturally produces as a result of this impaired fiber (cellulose) digestion may protect the Candida from our body's immune system. By adding cellulase to the diet we provide support for fiber digestion, allowing it to be removed along with inappropriate mucus, allowing our body to achieve balance.*
Protease: The inside of the cell of yeast is mostly protein. Proteases are proteolytic, meaning they have the ability to hydrolyze (digest) protein. Protease enzymes have a long history of beneficial use for detoxification and purification. The addition of protease to this formula helps the body deal with excess "die-off" or common symptoms of cleansing.
