    hmm....well, need a lot of typin.... Actually Your body, relies on substances called enzymes in order for chemical reactions to take place. Enzymes are not actually used in the reaction, but they do help to speed it along. One example of an enzyme used in many chemical reactions is protease. Knowing how this enzyme affects your body can help you to understand any symptoms you could have related to poor digestion. Significance: Protease is an enzyme that breaks down proteins, specifically digestive proteins according to Enzyme Essentials an enzyme educational website. Protein is a vital part of your diet-an estimated 20 percent to 25 percent of your calories should come from it. Protein is a necessary building block for your muscles, skin, hormones and more. This makes the action of protease very important.
