Amylase is a digestive enzyme that breaks down carbohydrates (polysaccharides) into smaller units (disaccharides) and eventually converting them into even smaller units (monosaccharides) such as glucose.
helps to digest dead white blood cells (pus). If your body is low on it, you are a candidate for abscesses (inflamed areas with pus).
Amylase is involved in anti-inflammatory reactions such as those caused by the release of
histamine. It helps clear up outbreaks of psoriasis, eczema, hives, insect bites, and all types of herpes.
