Carbohydrates, proteins and fats are the primary essential macronutrient molecules for a healthy life. Proteases break down large proteins molecules into smaller peptides and amino acids. The smaller peptides and amino acids ensure higher bioavailability of essential nutrients, thus acting as a digestive aid. For the oral administration of proteases, proteases need to retain its activity upon exposure to low gastric pH. Fruzyme Biotech’s Bioavailyst™ at low pH shows conformational transformation to molten state at pH 2 of the stomach, that instantly converts to its native state at pH 4-10, of the intestine thus retaining its activity.
Bioavailyst™ finds application in the production of plant and animal hydrolysates, digestive aid medications, nutritional and dietary supplements and sports nutrition. Bioavailyst™ is also used in combating dyspepsia and other digestive disorders and disturbances of the gastrointestinal tract. Fruzyme protease also presents antifungal, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
