Nature's Gift Chitosanase Enzyme Formula
This is a multi purpose enzyme formula to break down chitin and break up bio-film
First. Chitin is found in the mouth parts of mites and Collembola as well as shells of the eggs they lay. It is also found in the cellular walls of all fungi including candida.
Second. The simple answer is that it breaks down biofilm protecting bacteria from being destroyed by antibiotics. The technical explanation follows:
Biofilm consists of microorganisms encased within a self-produced matrix of exopolysaccharides and exoproteins that strongly adheres to interfaces and resists dislodgement. Microorganisms residing within biofilms are highly resistant to antimicrobials including antibiotics and bacteriocins produced by probiotics. Chitosanase is a unique enzyme formulation that is especially designed to disrupt the biofilm matrix that embeds gastrointestinal organisms.† Enzymes in the formula are selected for their ability to lyse the extracellular polymers commonly found in biofilm as well as degrade bacterial and yeast cell wall structures. The enzyme blend was developed using in vitro testing of antibiofilm activity and was found to have significant antibiofilm activity resulting in meaningful degradation of undesirable biofilm communities. This product is intended for use in conjunction with efforts to support normal gastrointestinal function and microbiota. As an adjunct, it is best combined with a diet of prebiotics for the formation of healthy intestinal microbial biofilm communities. The capsules should be taken away from meals to maximize the enzyme effects.
