Alpha-galactosidase is a natural enzyme which assists in both preventing flatulence, abdominal bloating, stomach pain, and a distended stomach. The Alpha-galactosidase enzyme is a homodimeric glycoprotein that hydrolyses the terminal alpha-galactosyl moieties from glycolipids and glycoproteins. It predominantly hydrolyzes ceramide trihexoside, and it can catalyze the hydrolysis of melibiose into galactose and glucose.
