How Ayurveda Helps in Lysosomal Storage Disease

Lysosomal storage disease is a group inherited the metabolic disorder, of more than 50 rare diseases, caused by a deficiency of a specific enzyme (Protein that speeds up the reactions in the body). They mainly affect the lysosome, i.e. a structure of the cells that contain hydrolases, which breaks down some biomolecules such as proteins, carbohydrates, and old cell parts so the body can recycle them. In other words, if the lysosome does not function properly, excess substance for decomposition and recycling will remain in the cells. The synthesis of the lysosomal enzyme is controlled by nuclear genes. When a mutation in these genes occurs, it results in 30 different genetic diseases, collectively called lysosomal storage diseases.
