Catalyze Experiment

Research says grey hair is due to build up of h2o2. And Enzyme catalyze breaks down h2o2. As we age of course body produces less enzyme . But there are some fruits , vegetables rich in catalyze. And it’s an easy to experiment with and find out if it’s really rich in catalyze.

Buy H2O2 from drug store and take a little in glass bowl or if you have test tube and throw a piece of vegetable. Wait for 5 minute and if bubbles show up then it has catalyze. All good so far.

This Indian vegetable called Turai also known as ridge gourd is advertised for grey hair. And so I wanted to test if it’s rich in catalyze .

Experimented with onion, broccolis, cilantro, pineapple and last ridge gourd . Guess what ? Ridge gourd made bubbles so fast and most .

After heating and cooking though, I don’t know how much enzyme it will still have. I was just curious to know if it actually had any catalyze and so did this little experiment. For now, I will just keep enjoying Turai as vegetable. Next I will share few dishes with Turai.

Here are the pictures of experiment.
