Jorge, I wonder if mannanase could help break down this protein and degrade it before it entered our blood stream. Whats interesting is that there are some bacterial strains that produce b-mannanase. Some labortories sell b-mannanase which has been produced by some bacterial strains. I cant find any products that have a decent amount of mannanase in it. It would be nice to find something that could break down this mannan before it suppresses the immune system. A company called speciality enzymes specializes in enzymes. They might be a good company to call to try to get some info.Found this link interesting: http://www.360ip.com/uploads/docs/2_PRO%20739%20-%20B-Mannanase_Technology_Summary_Dec_22.pdf Example of how microbes degrade mannan: http://journal.biotrop.org/index.php/biotropia/article /viewFile/211/180 Anti-nutrient effects of mannan: http://www.habio.net/product.php?id=16&menuId=4
Interesting studies. So it seems like a two step approach would be to: --- degrade the mannan and chelate the copper/reduce copper levels? The question is---is their a product /powder that can degrade mannan and remain stable in the GI tract. Seems like some of the b-mannanase powders are questionable with its stability and how far it can travel in the intestines? I've yet to find a product that specializes in mannan degrading. I e-mailed speciality enzymes to see if they can sell mannanase by itself..waiting for response. Then again how stable is this powder going to be??? Hmmm
The constant release of acetaldehyde and ammonia can cause constant fatigue as well. According to wikipedia acetaldehyde can be 10 to 30 times more toxic than alcohol. Not to mention candida's ability to constantly interfere with digestion and nutrient absorption.
