Do a bit better: Please wash your utensils with soap and water and then soak in alcohol. It is preferable to get the sanitazion formulas from a beauty equipment store and after thoroughly cleaning soaking in that liquid. Do not share utensils with others. Fungal infections come from this behavior. ...Read more

why aren't the proteins we eat denatured in the acidic stomach? how are enzymes able to connect to the proteins, low stomach PH doesnt denature them?

why aren't the proteins we eat denatured in the acidic stomach? how are enzymes able to connect to the proteins, low stomach PH doesnt denature them?

Thoughtful question!: Enzymatic digestion occurs predominantly in the small bowel due to the action of "pancreatic juice" which contains many enzymes, including trypsinogen, chymotrypsinogen, elastase, carboxypeptidase, pancreatic lipase, nucleases & amylase. The pancreas also expresses bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) to neutralize stomach acid, thereby promoting enzymatic action. ...Read more

I read that pasteurized milk, has its protein denatured, in which the structure changes and cant be absorbed in the intestines.is milk protein useless?

I read that pasteurized milk, has its protein denatured, in which the structure changes and cant be absorbed in the intestines.is milk protein useless?

Milk: The caseins (one of the milk proteins) are stable to heat treatment. Typical high temperature short time (HTST) pasteurization conditions will not affect the functional and nutritional properties of the casein proteins. High temperature treatments can cause interactions between casein and whey proteins that affect the functional but not the nutritional properties. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Doesn't protein get digested by protease in the stomach/denatured by the HCL in the stomach so how can it enter the body through ingestion?

Doesn't protein get digested by protease in the stomach/denatured by the HCL in the stomach so how can it enter the body through ingestion?

Digest then absorb: Proteins are made up of long chains of dozens or hundreds of amino acids. HCL and pepsin in the stomach & protease breaks the proteins down into individual amino acids, which can then be absorbed through the intestinal lining into our bloodstream.

How long would it take to completely recover from alcohol hepatitis?

Weeks to month: It can take many weeks to a few months to recover from alcoholic hepatitis and that is if you stop drinking completely. I can take quite a long time for the liver to come back closer to normal and would require good nutrition as well as abstinence from alcohol. ...Read more
