Quoted Text
Dr D:
Paradoxically, although phenylalanine inhibits IAP, it also induces further production of IAP. Since non-secretors don't make very much to inhibit, the amount induced is more significant, since by the time the IAP is produced, the amino
acid is long gone. I think vitamin A does that as well.

For the more technically inclined, phenylalanine is called an 'uncompetitive inhibitor'. It only works when the concentrations of the enzyme substrate (IAP and some fat in this case) is high. On the other hand, the presence of phenylalanine and fat (but minus the IAP) seems to induce some production of IAP.

nutrasweet is a brand name, like splenda or aspartame or all those......better kept as far away as possible.

I was doing some research, because honestly I didn't really know what IAP was..

So I guess "alkaline phosphatase" is a group of enzymes (hence the -ase, which seems to be left off when ppl here have mentioned it) that break down fat and other things in the small intestine.  That's what Dr. D means when he talks about non-secretors lacking "fat-busting enzymes", I assume.   '

So that's exciting to think that we could take a supplement (L-Phen) to increase our utility for oils in the diet!   I bought a bottle today

Aspartame is made from the union of L-phenylalanine and vitamin C, which are both natural substances, although L-phenylalanine will cause black urine in phenylketonurics, which is why anything containing Aspartame has that warning for phenylketonurics.

Anyhow, when Aspartame is metabolized by the body, however, from what I understand, it doesn't break back down into those two things but, rather, into vitamin C, methyl (wood) alcohol, and formaldehyde.

Methyl alcohol (also called "methanol") is not meant for ingestion; the form which we drink to get drunk is ethanol... a two-carbon alcohol, as opposed to methanol, which is a one-carbon alcohol.  And methanol is notorious for causing blindness and nerve damage.

Finally, formaldehyde is a known carcinogen... which may explain a number of these reports of a spike in cancer cases shortly following the introduction of Aspartame into the food supply.  

(Also, FYI, the beer Heineken contains formaldehyde as a preservative.)

My understanding is that, when Aspartame was first being manufactured (by Monsanto, I believe), the off-gasses given off by it in the plants were so horrendously toxic that the workers handling the mixtures were keeling over dead from it and, what's more, it was eating through their rubber boots.

If these rumors are true, that's some fun stuff to be taking into your body.
