Definition of Cellulase:

Cellulases describes a group of enzymes that break down cellulose.  Cellulose is a complex polymer of glucose and is considered a polysaccharide.  It is the chief constituent of the fiber of plants and is considered indigestible in humans.  By supplying cellulase, some of the nutrients locked in these plant structures can be made available during digestion.  Once cellulase is absorbed, it may then be able to break down certain polysaccharide deposits.  It is usually found in supplements combined with other enzymes for use as a digestive aid or enzyme therapy.
