How do these enzymes work?
Well to get technical for a moment, the enzyme amyloglucosidase breaks down glucans (e.g. starches in the plaque matrix). It also boosts the effect of the enzyme lactoperoxidase in the saliva. As a reaction, hypothiocyanite ions are formed from thiocyanate ions and hydrogen peroxide and these have superb bacteriostatic properties.
Thanks to the three enzymes in Enzycal, this lactoperoxidase system is additionally supported and bacterial growth is naturally restricted.
Enzyme 1= Amyloglucosidase: Changes polyglucans (plaque matrix) into glucose.
Enzyme 2 = Glucoseoxidase: Changes glucose in competition with the plaque bacteria into gluconate, thereby reducing the spread of bacteria.
Enzyme 3 = Lactoperoxidase with thiocyanate: the H2O2 from the glucose transformation reacts with thiocyanate to become hypothiocyanate, a naturally occurring antibacterial substance in saliva.
