Ox Bile Extract is a natural fat emulsifier and stimulant for secretion of fat digesting enzymes. Cholic acid is manufactured from bovine bile.
Blood plasma is used as an additive in the food sector as well as in the pharmaceutical and pet food industries. Blood plasma comes from bovine, ovine and porcine blood sources and is separated from the hemoglobin. Blood is composed of cellular and liquid components. Plasma remains when the corpuscles are removed from liquid blood. To prevent the blood from clotting, an anticoagulant is added when the blood is collected from the arteries of slaughtered animals. Calcium-binding substances such as citrates are suitable for this purpose. Clotting is unable to start as a result of thrombin formation being inhibited
Cucurbitacins are a family of compounds characterised by oxygenated triterpenoid structures. The family consist of several compounds with small differences. The primary source of these compounds are from within the Cucurbitaceae family however several other plants species have now been found to produce the compounds including traditional plants used in Chinese medicine.
Liver Extract is produced from specific fraction of bovine liver. Liver Extract is rich in vital nutrients including energy producing B Vitamins and serve as an excellent source of proteins. Liver Extract is capable of stimulating the production of red blood cells. Liver Extract may also be used as homeopathic medicine or as a micro nutrition only. Liver Extract may be helpful in treating hepatic (Liver) dysfunction and other viral infections. Liver extract can also be used for treating certain forms of cancer.
Oleuropein is a compound found in olive varieties at varying levels. Much interest in these compounds has been stemmed from a belief of them to have antioxidant and other medicinal properties, particularly due to the low incidence of atherosclerosis and heart disease in the Mediterranean population.
Pancreatin (also referred to as pancreatic acid) is a type of digestive enzyme combination (produced by blending several digestive enzymes made by the pancreas' exocrine cells). Pancreatin is commonly used for supplementing insufficient levels of digestive enzymes in the body. There are many different uses for pancreatin, including treating people with cystic fibrosis, treating autoimmune disorders, celiac disease, allergies to certain foods, weight loss and cancer. Pancreatine is sourced from bovine pancreas.
Pepsin is a digestive enzyme that is released in the stomach as pepsinogen. The release of hydrochloric acid stimulates the release of this basic form of pepsin. When pepsinogen is exposed to the hydrochloric acid in the stomach, the pepsinogen unfolds and breaks into pepsin.
The main function of pepsin is to break down proteins that are found in foods such as meat and eggs into smaller pieces (polypeptides). It breaks down proteins only at certain points, so the protein is not digested completely to the amino acid level. In order for that to occur, the food has to pass into the intestines, where other enzymes complete the digestion process.
Trypsin is a type of enzyme used in the digestive process to break down proteins into their component parts of peptides and amino acids for easy absorption into the body. Trypsin is just one of many important but little known enzymes that make digestion possible. Trypsin is classified as either a proteolytic enzyme or a proteinase, due to its function of breaking down protein compounds. It is one of the three main proteinases at work in the digestive system, joining pepsin (found in the stomach lining) and chymotrypsin (found throughout the intestines of mammals). Trypsin is manufactured by the pancreas, but it is active in the small intestine, continuing the breakdown of proteins begun in the stomach. It is there that the mildly basic pH (which hovers around 8) allows the enzyme to reach optimal performance, with the most successful reactions.
