“They work thrombolytically to break up blood clots through h the own proteolytic system.”
“The benefits from proteolytic enzymes are that they inhibit inflammation without immunosuppression, reduce pain and edema, inhibit thrombi formation and stimulate thrombolysis, improve the blood supply and therefore the nutrition of the tissue and improve blood circulation.”
“The enzymes accelerate the inflammatory process for the healing of the wound, which means that the work of damage control, damage repair and construction is carried out speedier then without the additional proteolytic enzymes.”
“But proteolytic enzymes are such as pancreatin, papain, petizyme sp and bromelain.”
“The human stomach and small intestine secrete proteolytic enzymes, so the human diet obviously requires foods that actually contain protein.”
“Targeting of genes for endothelial growth factors and proteolytic enzymes have been essential for understanding mechanisms of neoangiogenesis and metastasis of solid tumours and are also used for developing therapeutic strategies to prevent spreading .”
“Enzymes, four capsules twice a day between meals for six weeks bromelain and other proteolytic enzymes.”
“Platelet aggregation and fibrin formation both require the proteolytic enzyme thrombin, plus calcium ions and about a dozen other protein clotting factors.”
“It was still necessary to demonstrate that the process requires energy, and indeed, following our initial characterization of degradation of abnormal hemoglobin in the intact cell, we showed that the process required energy (was published in 1978 in the proceedings of a proteolysis meeting held in Buffalo, NY), and felt that the time was ripe to break the cell open and isolate and characterize the non-lysosomal and ATP-dependent proteolytic enzyme (s).”
