Biology professor Vic Arcus is trying to tease out how enzymes are able to speed chemical reactions up.
Enzymes are globular proteins that control biological reactions. Digestive enzymes speed up the breakdown (hydrolysis) of food molecules into their ‘building block’ components.
While some supplements, such as Beano, have been around a long time and studied, newer unregulated formulations are raising concerns.
A single enzyme might be key to the body's 'decision' to burn or store fat, says a new study from the University of California. So how can we work with it?
Do you buy bagged bread in the grocery store? There are usually several options including bread made with whole grains or containing several different kinds of grain. You have probably noticed that such breads stay nice and soft for quite a while. Some people are even suspicious about that imagining that the bread might be “loaded with preservatives.” They are not.
