What do enzymes in saliva do?
The only enzymes I am aware of in saliva are Amylase enzymes.
These enzymes break down Carbohydrates.
Hope this helps!
Amylase and lysozyme are enzymes found in the saliva. The former initiates the breakdown of starch into smaller carboydrate units, while the latter inhibits bacterial growth in the oral cavity. There are several other pathogen inhibiting enzymes in saliva. Saliva also contains a lipase enzyme for the breakdown of lipids, but it is not very active until it reaches the low pH of the stomach. Saliva also contains ptyalin.
