WHAT ARE ENZYMES?

Enzymes are protein-like molecules found in all living cells of humans, animals and plants. They must be present in order to catalyze all biochemical processes in our body. If our bodies were light bulbs, and minerals were electrical wires, enzymes would be electricity. This means that all vital physical processes – from eating and sleeping to breathing and even thinking – depend on enzymes. Without enzymes, no amount of vitamins and minerals, no matter how large or how pure, will ever make the slightest improvement to your health.

What ENZYMES exactly do in our body?

Enzymes are your body’s workforce. They industriously build, repairs, and clean up our bodies. There are two different classes of enzyme that occur naturally in the body – digestive enzymes, which break down and digest food, and metabolic enzymes, which regulate all other physical processes. Food enzymes are present in raw foods, and are usually just sufficient to help the body digest that particular food. They are destroyed by cooking. The body requires and adequate supply of both metabolic and digestive enzymes in order to function properly and remain healthy.

Each enzyme has a specific function to perform in the body. For example, some enzymes:

Aid digestion – by ensuring the complete digestion of dietary carbohydrates, fat and protein, these enzymes prevent them from causing toxicity by fermenting or putrefying in the system. Aid elimination – these enzymes regulate the bowels and improve the health of the colon while maintaining a healthy balance of intestinal flora within the gastrointestinal tract. Aid in circulation – by breaking down clots and purifying the blood, enzymes improve circulation and increase oxygen delivery. Strengthen the immune system – some enzymes work to provide anti-oxidant protection, deliver nutritional support, carry away toxic waste and reduce inflammation. Enhance the endocrine system – Lipase, by breaking down and digesting fat helps to keep your weight in check as well as keeping cholesterol and triglyceride levels balanced. Other enzymes enhance your mental capacity and promote healing, restful sleep. Improve aging skin – enzymes smoothen and improve the complexion of skin by fighting free radicals, infusing cells with oxygen and increasing the blood supply to the skin.

Where do ENZYMES come from?

There are two sources of enzymes: Endogenous enzymes – are made within the various cells of the body, and depending on the cell type and function, are produced at different rates. Exogenous enzymes – are those that we consume in raw food or in the form of enzyme supplements. Supplemental plant enzymes are enzymes that have been extracted from plants. The best plant enzymes come from different varieties of carefully cultivated aspergillums, and contain protease to digest proteins, amylase to digest complex carbohydrates, and lipase to digest fats. Unlike animal-extracted enzymes, which only work in an alkaline environment, plant enzymes are active in a pH range of 2 to 12. They work in the stomach, helping us predigest our food, and continue working throughout the digestive system.
