Now to find that natural something needed for jump starting and/or boosting that lysosome function.
And about 10 minutes later, I find what I'm looking for...
Lysosomal Activity Declines With Aging
A lysosome (derived from the Greek words lysis, meaning "to loosen", and soma, "body") is a membrane-bound cell organelle found in most animal cells (they are absent in red blood cells). Structurally and chemically, they are spherical vesicles containing hydrolytic enzymes capable of breaking down virtually all kinds of biomolecules, including proteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates, lipids, and cellular debris.
Enzymes of the lysosomes are synthesised in the rough endoplasmic reticulum.
This newest volume in the impressive New Comprehensive Biochemistry series presents up-to-date discussions of six types of hydrolytic enzyme that are well characterized structurally: aspartic-, cysteins-, and serine-proteinases, carboxypeptidase A, pancreatic ribonuclease A, and the phosphomonoesterases. The emphasis is on molecular mechanisms deduced by crystallographic, kinetic, spectroscopic and molecular genetic studies. The chapters on the various types of proteinases are complemented by others on proteinase inhibitors and intracellular proteolysis. This book will prove valuable to researchers in general biochemistry, particularly those with interest in enzyme mechanism and protein chemistry, and to Honours and Postgraduate students.
Useful hydrolytic enzymes: Proteases, lipases and nitrilases
Okay, that would be the systemic enzymes blends that I ALREADY know about. Like Fibrenza for instance.
Had a hunch it would be that, and that's something I already knew, except it wasn't put into all those words exactly. But I've know about the protein eating proteases and that serrapeptases eats up excess fibrosis, fibrin, scar tissue inflammation, etc...
Digestive enzymes are also important, and of course certain fresh fruits and vegetables can be an excellent Way to boost digestive enzyme levels. And supplementing with Cellfood.
Digestive enzymes are classified by their substrates. These include the following (2):
* Proteases and peptidases, which split proteins into amino acids.
* Lipases, which split fats into three fatty acids and glycerols.
* Carbohydrases, which split carbohydrates such as starches into sugars.
* Nucleases, which split nucleic acids into nucleotides.
Proteases & Peptidases:
Proteases break down proteins. A protease is any enzyme that conducts proteolysis, that is, begins protein catabolism by hydrolysis of the peptide bonds that link amino acids together in the polypeptide chain, which form a molecule of protein. (Like protease and serrapeptase)
A lipase is a water-soluble enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of ester bonds in water-insoluble, lipid substrates. Lipases thus comprise a subclass of the esterases.
Carbohydrase acts on carbohydrates of which are made from the elements carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. After reacting these elements are arranged into rings, where 1 ring is a monosaccharide, 2 rings are disaccharides and three or more rings are polysaccharides.
A nuclease is an enzyme capable of cleaving the phosphodiester bonds between the nucleotide subunits of nucleic acids. Older publications may use terms such as "polynucleotidase" or "nucleodepolymerase".
Serrapeptase is an enzyme derived from silk worms
Serrapeptase is an enzyme derived from silk worms. Its greatest benefit is its ability to dissolve amyloid plaque one of the main Aging symptoms in the body. I use the Serra Enzyme™ High Strength Serrapeptase 250,000 IU strength, in addition to the Fibrenza, and especially when I can't afford Fibrenza. Being able to take BOTH is ideal.
So Lysosomal Activity Declines With Aging because systemic enzymes also decline with aging. Usually around age 29 -35, give or take. http://www.newswithviews.com/Howenstine/james174.htm
And if there's anything else that I missed, I'll come back and add to this.
