They play a vital role in digestion and all life processes!
They are proteins that contain high electrical frequencies and are at the heart of overall super health, catalyzing and regulating all biochemical reactions that occur within the human body.
3 Enzyme Types:
1) Metabolic - present in the organs, cells and tissues 2) Digestive and 3) Food.
The food enzymes are the ones we have the most direct control over.
When we choose a healthy diet plan that incorporates high enzymatic activity with living food, we maximize our levels of nutrient absorption and these foods, in turn, give us more energy.
A diet of over-cooked, processed and refined foods, over time, depletes the body’s metabolic and digestive enzymatic potentials.
In the words of Dr. Edward Howell in his book Enzyme Nutrition he states:
"They are substances that make life possible. They are needed for every chemical reaction that takes place in the human body. Not mineral, vitamin, or hormone can do any work without them. Our bodies, all our organs, tissues, and cells are run by metabolic enzymatic processes."
As we mentioned, when we are not getting the appropriate enzyme action
from our foods, our body starts to draw on our reserves, which over
time, considerably deplete and weaken the entire body and it's vital
The Importance of Minerals
The enzymes present in our body need minerals from the food we eat to be "turned on" and activated, so we can access them. We have thousands of enzymes in our cells that are simply laying dormant because of a diet low in minerals. Eating mineral rich foods is key for two main reasons:
Disease and degeneration is intimately linked to the damaging effects of a diet low in enzymatic activity. It has been suggested by Dr Howell that our longevity and quality of life suffer as a result.
”Humans eating an enzyme-less diet use up a tremendous amount of their potential in lavish secretions of the pancreas and other digestive organs. The result is a shortened lifespan (65 years or less compared with 100 or more), illness, and lowered resistance to stresses of all types, psychological and environmental.”
It is important to eat a diet high in enzyme activity. This is food that remains in it's raw state or is a fermented food.
Most people feel the results almost immediately, because they are simply getting more energy out of the food they eat. It's "enzymatically alive" and it's mineral-rich!
Fermented foods are potent sources of enzymatic action.
Chlorophyll-rich aw juices, like wheatgrass, green juices and other raw vegetable juices are also great for boosting levels and are a most super concentrated way to immediately absorb loads of these essential molecules.
Sometimes it is necessary to take a digestive enzyme super supplement to provide a potent dose of enzymes when you need them, after a big cooked food dinner for example.
These digestive supplements are concentrated plant enzyme extracts that help to minimize toxic, totally undigested, or only partially digested food particles that may be present in the digestive tract.
Most American culture could use more “culture” from cultured and fermented foods.
A poor quality diet of refined, processed foods (SAD) lowers enzyme potential. Including more fermented foods and raw foods in the diet could greatly increase colon health and restore the enzymatic process.
Americans have a high level of undigested proteins, as seen through live cell analysis, which in turn causes poor digestion, producing a toxic and encrusted digestive tract that supports disease.
Increase your enzymatic potentials today by adding in these foods that will give you more nutrition and take less from your own savings of metabolic and digestive energy!
