What are enzymes?

There are approximately 1300 different enzymes found in the human body. Every organ, every tissue, and all cells in our body depend upon the reactions of all types of existing enzymes. Enzymes have been described as the energy and life and are vital to all living organisms. Enzymes help to digest and absorb the food we eat and maintain the functions of all internal organs. The vital role of enzymes consists in their catalyst effect in the body’s biochemical reactions.

 

Types of Enzymes

There are three types of enzymes. Our bodies naturally produce two types, digestive and metabolic enzymes, while food enzymes can only be consumed from the food we eat.

 

 
  • Metabolic Enzymes are produced by every living cell in our organs and tissues and are responsible for detoxification and energy production in the body.

 

  • Digestive Enzymes are secreted along the digestive tract to break food down into nutrients and waste. This allows nutrients to be absorbed into the blood stream and the waste to be discarded. Human digestive enzymes include ptyalin, pepsin, trypsin, lipase, protease, and amylase. The body does not make cellulose, an enzyme necessary for proper digestion of fiber, and can be taken only through the raw foods we eat.

 

  • Food Enzymes are introduced to the body through the raw foods we eat and through consumption of supplemental enzyme fortifiers. Raw foods naturally contain enzymes, providing a source of digestive enzymes when ingested. However, enzymes are inactivated above body temperature and are destroyed by the heat of food processing. Bread has no enzymes after baking, canned juice has no enzymes, breakfast cereals have no enzymes, and vegetables lose their enzymes once boiled. In other words, any food that is canned, pasteurized, baked, broiled, stewed, boiled, or fried has lost its inherent enzymes. Since most of the foods we eat are cooked or processed in some way and since even the raw foods we do eat does not contain enough enzymes to process that particular food, our bodies must produce the majority of the digestive enzymes we require.


How we lose enzymes?

There are two causes of enzyme deficiencies nowadays due to our modern lifestyle.

 

 
  • Cooked food and Processed food

    At above 55 degrees Celsius all the natural enzymes are destroyed. Cooked food is basically food without any live enzymes left for nutrition. In addition, it is suspected that various chemical food additives in highly processed food, devoid of any enzymes, can interfere with digestive enzyme function.

 

 

  • Non-biological, Non-organic Agriculture

    All food (plant or animal source) contains various types of enzymes. However, even raw foods today do not contain natural levels of enzymes because poor farming techniques that have depleted the soil of nutrients needed for their synthesis. Enzymes from plants, roots and fruits are destroyed with use of insecticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers as its affects the plant and the soil. Scientific research shows that chemically cultured crops have a low level of enzymes.

 

According to researches done in Japan:

 

Spinach

During the 1950’s every 100 g spinach leaves contained 98 mg calcium. In 2000, calcium content dropped to 55 mg (reduced by 43.9%)

Celery

Calcium content in 100 g celery from 85 mg to 33 mg ---reduction of 61.6%

Green Pepper

Total nutrient content for every 100 g green pepper – from200 mg to 80 mg ----reduction of 60%

Cabbage

Total nutrient content in cabbage ----reduction of 50%

Meat

Animals that are not raised in natural farms and raised with antibiotics will have a total different nutrient profile for their meat. Artificial feed may be a source of meat toxins. That means low enzymes concentration, low nutrients, low quality meat, high pesticide residue, and high toxins. Without natural feed, animals are not able to detoxify therefore high amount of toxins accumulates in internal organs and muscle.

 
What constitutes a healthy body?

Good health is reflected by our own individual enzyme system. The health of our organs and glands is completely dependent upon our enzyme producing abilities. Our health is influenced by the absence or deficiency of metabolic enzymes. Also our normal enzymes potential and ability to produce metabolic enzymes decrease as we age.

Diet has a crucial influence on the health of our glands and organs. Enzymes from food are vital to the ability of glands and organs to receive the specific nutrients they require to function properly.


Simply explained, good nutrition is the body's ability to consume nutrients in their proper amounts, digest these nutrients, absorb these nutrients, carry these nutrients into the cells, metabolize these nutrients, and eliminate the waste without getting fat. The well-known nutrients are: carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, amino-acids, vitamins, minerals. Enzymes are responsible for digesting, absorbing, transporting, metabolizing, and eliminating the waste of these nutrients.

 

Our Enzyme Potential
It is well-known that our ability to produce enzymes gets weaker as we grow older. The enzyme deficiency of the older people is due to exhaustion in the cells of the organs (stomach, pancreas, liver etc). Our internal organs need to produce and secrete plenty of enzymes to digest the food and that leads to premature degeneration and ageing. Hence the definition of "old age" would be “a debilitated metabolic enzyme activity”. Delaying the aging process will be possible by replenishment of body enzymes natural reserve.

 

Why taking an enzyme product?
For these reasons it is recommended that we supplement our diet with enzymes. Enzyme supplementation is important for anyone eating cooked or processed foods. The enzymes products will have the ability to assist the body by breaking down or digesting food we consume, without putting a pressure on our own digestive system.

All bodily functions can be enhanced and improved by supplemental enzymes. Enzyme products are helping digest food, support energy increase and alleviating the metabolic burden of an inefficient digestive system.

 
 
Risks and harms of enzyme deficiency

 

The importance of healthy digestion
Digestion is a complex process that decomposes the food and prepares it for absorption.

Without proper digestion, absorption of vitamins, minerals and essential nutrients from food is going to be impaired and it will determine the energy production, immune function and other body repairing processes. Hence proper nutrition is realized by proper diet, eating whole raw food rich in natural enzymes helping with healthy digestion.

 

Enzymes Support Healthy Digestion
Enzymes supplementation will enhance the digestion in the digestive tract. This takes stress off the stomach, gallbladder, liver, and pancreas. Digestive enzymes are ultimately the catalysts to the digestion process and biochemical reaction in our bodies. Taking enzymes supplements is a great way to preserve the own body “enzymes potential”. That means to reduce the amount of energy that we spend on digestion. By some estimates, we spend up to 80% of all of the energy we have at our disposal digesting our food. Take a high quality plant based enzyme supplement with every meal. The choice is yours!
Also we recommend eating more raw food, with plenty of natural digestive enzymes. By eating foods that have not been cooked, processed, irradiated or heated above 118 degrees, we are extending our “enzymes potential”.

 


 

Symptoms of poor digestion

Gas, bloating, indigestion, heartburn, fatigue, poor sleep, allergies, candida.

 

Increase your energy with enzymes

It has been found that 80% of all our body energy we will use in our entire lifetime will be spent on the amazing process of digestion. This leaves only 20% to handle all other processes of the body (immune, endocrine, cardiovascular functions etc).

 

Enzymes in general deliver nutrients from food intake, carry away toxic wastes, digest food, purify the blood, fortify the endocrine system, balance cholesterol and triglyceride levels, feed the brain and cause no harm to the body. All of these factors contribute to the overall wellbeing, energy and strengthening of the immune system.

 

Enzymes are powerful anti-oxidants
An adequate supply of enzymes is absolutely essential for fighting the free radical damage. According to research, enzymes fight the aging process by increasing blood flow, bringing essential nutrients and carrying away waste products that can damage your body, thus fighting oxidative damage in body cells and tissues.

 

Enzymes can help in weight management

Scientific research shows that obese individuals have deficiency in the enzyme lipase, the enzyme that aids the body in breaking down and storing fats. Without lipase, our fat stagnates and accumulates in our arteries, which could lead to heart disease. Lipase also helps us to burn fat for energy. Cooked foods will have no enzymes, in comparison with raw foods. Raw food nutrients are relatively non-stimulating to endocrine glands also and stabilize body weight more so than cooked food.


Enzymes can help lower cholesterol

Cholesterol is a form of fat. Consuming animal fats tend to cause cholesterol to settle in the arteries and cause artherosclerosis (clogged arteries). Current researches showed that a shortage of enzymes is part of a mechanism, which allows cholesterol deposits to accumulate in the inner-part of the arterial walls. Also it was found a progressive decline in lipase enzyme in the blood of atherosclerotic patients with advancing middle and old age. Taking plant enzyme lipase or eating raw food will normally lower your cholesterol and may protect you against heart disease showing improvements in the body’s fat utilization.

 

Enzymes support in diabetes

Research has shown that when there is a lack of blood enzyme called amylase, blood sugar levels can be higher than normal. When the enzyme amylase is administered, blood sugar levels drop significantly. One research showed that 86% of the diabetics that he examined had a deficiency of amylase in their intestinal secretions. Amylase may help with storage and utilization of sugar in the blood.

Some other researchers showed that cooked starchy foods, where amylase and other enzymes had been destroyed, caused the blood sugar levels to rise significantly in one-half hour after ingestion. After two hours the cooked food starch eaters' blood sugar level fell quickly and significantly. This resulted in fatigue, anxiety, and sluggishness.

The healthy recommendation in diabetes would be a raw foods diet or supplementation with plant enzymes products.

 

Boosting Immunity with Enzymes

Good health is dependent on a healthy digestive and immune system. Based on scientific medical research, there is a critical connection between immunity and digestive health. It has been agreed by the medical doctors that 70% of your immune system is in your gut. Taking supplemental enzymes, especially when eating processed and overly cooked food, will reduce stress to the digestive system, support the proper uptake of nutrients in the body and thus will create an ideal environment for 70% of your immune system.


When the digestive system is working properly it serves as a natural barrier to bacteria, viruses and pathogens of all kinds. Medication, unhealthy diet will negatively impact our ability to digest protein, which is an essential component of our immune cells, but it also, permits pathogens to pass into our small intestine where they are absorbed into the blood stream.

The small intestine contains a large portion of our immune system. The outer layer of the small intestine contains mucus, produced by special cells lining the digestive tract. Mucus serves as a barrier to prevent pathogens access to our blood stream. Poor food choices and improper digestion can lead to a decrease in this mucosal lining leaving us vulnerable to infection. This lining also houses antibacterial and antiviral substances that reside in your intestinal walls. When the lining of your intestines are compromised, your immunity is also compromised and there is a greater risk of becoming sick.
 

A simple approach to maintaining a healthy gut is the use of a high quality plant based supplemental enzymes and probiotics.

 
 

Why is enzyme supplementation important?
Anyone who eats cooked or processed food requires supplementation to assist digestion. Most people will choose cooked foods over raw foods but processed foods have no enzyme activity. As we age, our body’s ability to produce enzymes decreases. Enzyme supplements assure an adequate daily enzyme supply.

Where do we get enzymes?
Our body makes enzymes called metabolic enzymes. They are responsible for every action that takes place in our body including digestion. Enzymes are found in raw foods and will assist in the breakdown of that food. Supplemental plant based enzymes are grown from whole foods and measured by their action. They are sold in capsules or powder form. These enzymes can be ingested with food to assist in the digestion of food and the absorption of the nutrients. They can also be taken between meals to energize the body, fortify organs and build our biological defense system.

How can we preserve our body's enzyme level?
To fortify your enzyme potential, you must eat raw foods as much and often as possible and/or take certain enzyme supplements in order to avoid serious illness.

Will enzymes interfere with medication?
Plant source enzymes only breakdown and deliver natural food nutrients. Enzymes do not deliver synthetics so they do not interfere with any medication.

How quickly will I see results with the use of enzymes?
Digestive effects of enzymes work relatively fast in comparison to many alternative therapies. We recommend a minimum of 3 weeks regular use because of the speed of results with enzymes.

Are supplemental enzymes destroyed by stomach acid?
Plant based enzymes tolerate stomach acid well. They are not completely denatured by it and a few even maintain activity in stomach acid. The same cannot be said for animal based enzymes, which many times become denatured in stomach acid.
