Proteolytic Enzymes or Proteases refer to a group of enzymes that breaks down proteins into amino acids, the simpler, more active, and more beneficial forms of protein. Studies suggest that proteolytic enzymes like bromelain, papain, serratiopeptidase, and fungal protease are excellently absorbed in the GI tract and into the circulation, so it can facilitate various chemical reactions in the body.

Proteases have been shown to neutralise inflammation. It works by regulating levels of inflammatory biochemicals to a level where normal tissue repair and regeneration can occur. Proteolytic enzymes are thought to support healthy recovery in patients suffering from arthritis, a chronic inflammatory disease of the joints. Common symptoms of arthritis include pain, immobility, and swelling.
Proteolytic Enzymes are also thought to support the body’s responses to physical injuries. By supporting natural anti-inflammatory responses, proteases benefits normal recovery from sports related injuries.
Bromelain, papain, and other proteases promote healthy breast in women during post partum period. Post partum breast engorgement is one of the most common discomforts during the post partum period. Lactating women can use Proteolytic Enzymes supplements to maintain normal breast size and condition.
It appears that proteolytic enzymes are valuable for maintaining immune health. It helps prevent the negative immune reactions from whole protein strands that leaked into the blood stream. Immune reactions produced by these processes include food allergies, lupus, and other autoimmune diseases.
Proteolytic enzymes promote healthy digestion in patients suffering from pancreatic insufficiency and cystic fibrosis. Symptoms of pancreatic insufficiency include malabsorption, impaired digestion, abdominal discomfort, and nutritional discomforts. Healthy digestive function is critical for speedier recovery from these metabolic disorders.
Proteolytic Enzymes or proteases are the enzymes responsible for protein metabolism and breakdown to its more active and beneficial form, amino acids. It converts the long protein molecules into shorter amino acid molecules so it can be readily used for numerous chemical reactions and applications. In the body, the pancreas naturally produces proteolytic enzymes but it can also be found in some foods. Proteolytic enzyme supplements are also standardised sources of these protein-digesting enzymes. The protease enzyme bromelain is richly found in pineapples while papaya contains high concentrations of papain.
Aside from protein metabolism, proteolytic enzymes digest the walls of harmful microorganisms and other toxins, taking some load off the immune system. The most talked about action of proteolytic enzymes is its ability to neutralise inflammation, a very important mechanism in providing relief from chronic inflammatory conditions. It is said that proteases regulate the inflammatory compounds causing the excessive inflammation in arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, sports injuries, and skin burns. Doctor’s Best Proteolytic Enzymes is formulated to contain a broad spectrum of proteases including the most important ones like bromelain, papain, serratiopeptidase, and fungal protease.
