Ingredient Type: Digestive enzyme

Ribonuclease, also known as RNase, is a type of enzyme that breaks down ribonucleic acid (RNA) molecules into smaller pieces. It is naturally occurring in the body and plays a role in a variety of cellular processes.

In protein powders, ribonuclease is sometimes added as an ingredient to aid in the digestion and absorption of protein. By breaking down RNA molecules, ribonuclease may help increase the bioavailability of dietary protein and improve the efficiency of protein synthesis in the body.

While ribonuclease is generally considered safe when consumed in moderate amounts, high doses of the enzyme may cause digestive side effects like nausea, diarrhea, and stomach cramps.
