I'm doing a project on catalase. I found out that it is possible for someone to 
be unable to produce this enzyme, but I couldn't find out about any treatments. 
So I was wondering if there could be oral supplements which contain catalase 
extracted from other sources (i.e.: beef liver). Would the enzyme even reach 
the cells? What would a pill like this be made of? How would you extract the 
catalase? Is my thinking completely screwed? Thanks in advance.
