Proteins and Amino Acids -- Enzymes
Molecular assembly and molecular disassembly are essential procedures of
life. The synthesis of complex structures from a finite set of raw materials
underlies the prodigious complexity of life on earth. Control of molecular
synthesis is achieved by enzymes, an elite class of protein molecules.
Enzymes know how to grab other molecules and break them apart or stick them
together, according to the very specific blueprint, contained in DNA molecules.
Enzymes themselves are made by other enzymes from the amino acids which food
proteins provide. There are about two thousand different enzymes.
The largest enzyme populations live inside cells where they are attached to
molecular assembly structures. Other enzymes are secreted into body spaces as
mobile chemical workers.
Many enzymes become popular after someone writes an article praising their
wonderful abilities to manipulate molecular behavior - ingestion of the enzyme
is usually recommended. Superoxide dysmutase is one popular enzyme which cannot
be delivered by oral intake to the intercellular sites where it does its useful
things. Ingested proteins tend to get digested, losing their information as
shape and function, or, if they are not digested, may cause allergic
reactions rather than functioning normally.
The next development of molecular engineering may be vehicles to deliver
enzymes to intracellular sites where they will be useful. Delivery vehicles may
be physical structures or carrier molecules that protect the enzymes while
directing them through the GIT, circulation, and filtering systems like the
liver and lungs.
In Alpha AAX nine essential amino acids are complemented by 10 of the
non-essential amino acids. l-form amino acids are provided. Alpha AAX is a
powder to be added to fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables or juices and mixed
in a blender. The formula is useful for special
nutritional needs. Before you order, we want you to be well educated about amino acids and their
proper use as a nutritional supplement. Please read our online information
carefully and download the Alpha AAX eBook.
