Enzymes are a BIG DEAL…
When thinking about enzymes, most people think about digestive enzymes that help with digestion.
Enzymes, however, are much more than that, and in fact are required not only for digestion but for every chemical reaction within the body. They impact every single cell and organ in our body and are essential to life and good health.
Dr. Edward Howell, perhaps the world’s top authority in enzymes research and one of the leading pioneers in this field, said that “Without enzymes, no activity at all would take place. Neither vitamins, minerals, or hormone can do any work – without enzymes.”
Enzymes are the “labor force” that builds your body just like construction workers are the labor force that builds your house. You may have all the necessary building materials and lumber, but to build a house you need workers, which represent the vital life element. Similarly, you may have all the nutrients – vitamins, proteins, minerals, etc., for your body, but you still need the enzymes – the life element – to keep the body alive and well.Dr. Edward Howell
Enzymes are naturally found in raw foods, such as raw fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds, just as nature intended. When foods are microwaved or heated above 120 °F, the enzymes in them are no longer active.
Why this is so important? When we eat cooked foods, the body needs enzymes to digest and break down these foods, but since their enzymes got destroyed by the heat, it has no choice and is forced to produce the enzymes needed for digestion. This eventually depletes the body’s limited enzyme capacity.
Producing enzymes in order to support digestion of cooked foods come instead of producing enzymes to support the repair and health of other organs and tissues in the body.
The result as research suggests, is premature aging as well as many degenerative diseases we have today. In fact – in many diseases it is possible to link to the exact enzyme that is deficient that caused the disease.
Are you low on Enzymes ? Take the Test and Find Out!
Our experts developed a simple test so you can tell if you may have enzyme deficiency.
We also included an expert guide on what does it actually mean, how does it impact your health and what can you do about it. Start the Test
Did you know ? You can eat the healthiest foods in the world, but without sufficient digestive enzymes, your body will not absorb the nutrients from the foods.
