Code: 26000627

Amylase is an enzyme that can break down starch and convert it into sugars. It was  the very first enzyme to be found and isolated in 1833 by scientists Anselme Payen. Amylase is additionally made by the pancreas to hydrolyse dietary starch into trisaccharides and disaccharides which are afterwards transformed by dissimilar enzymes into glucose thus offering necessary energy for the human body. If the system has an amylase deficiency, there are various supplements to replace it and maintain the process of glucose production.
