What is the Mirosinase enzyme and why is it so important?
Have you ever heard of the enzyme myrosinase? Probably not, yet it plays a fundamental role in the plant world and not only ...
But what is it and why is it so important?
In the sub-cellular compartments of plant cells, there is an enzyme, called myrosinase, which is usually released and activated when plant tissues are attacked by parasites or any other factor that leads to the laceration of the latter.
The escape of this enzyme and its subsequent activation determines the conversion of glucosinolates converting them into isothiocyanates, bioactive molecules fundamental for the implementation of plant defense mechanisms against external agents that determine tissue lesion.
With our processing techniques, we were able to activate glucosinolates, abundantly present in the oil species, converting them into isothiocyanates, bioactive and bioavailable molecules known for their powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial and antitumor properties [1,2] that make the Moringa oleifera a functional food.
Ours is pure powder of Moringa oleifera leaves, processed at 300 Mesh without the addition of anti-caking agents: the perfect grain size for the release of the enzyme Mirosinase.
The strictly vegetable capsule is made of transparent hpmc (hydroxypropyl methylcellulose): the product appears a bright green color, a very high quality index.
