Why are Enzymes So Important to Everyday Life?
Enzymes, and their Importance in life!
Enzymes are the foundation of energy and the life force in all living things. They are responsible for building, detoxifying, and healing the body. They are also the force that allows your body to digest and absorb food.
Enzymes also regulate tens of thousands of other biochemical functions that take place in the body every day. Even thinking involves "enzymes". Without enzymes, seeds would not sprout, fruit would not ripen, leaves would not change color, and life would not exist.
Classifications of Enzymes
Throughout nature, there are many classifications of enzymes. Our focus is on two of these classifications, namely dietary enzymes, and digestive enzymes.
Dietary Enzymes - All natural foods contain Living Dietary Enzymes. They are a powerful nutritional factor that supports the digestive process and the assimilation and distribution of key nutrients. They activate to strengthen the body's immune functions and natural metabolism. Living Dietary Enzymes provide the body with a resource, enabling it to produce a whole series of metabolic enzymes, primarily the defensive frontline Antioxidant enzymes:
These enzymes are critical in the fight against free-radical damage and in maintaining healthy cellular functioning. The cells are the building blocks of life, and key to health and vitality.
The reason it is so important to supplement with Dietary enzymes is that cooked and processed foods have these enzymes destroyed thru heat and during processing. Without an adequate supply, the body lacks the necessary resources to keep pace with the body's demands for daily restoration and repair. This scenario leads to a downward spiral in general health and wellness.
Digestive Enzymes- Are found within living foods. They are there to help our bodies process (break-down for absorption) the foods we consume each day. The pancreas is also involved in the body's own production of digestive enzymes. Each enzyme produced plays a specific role in breaking down the various components of the food that we consume. These digestive enzymes include the following:
However, these digestive enzymes suffer the same forces as their dietary brothers when they are processed with heat or chemicals. This scenario leaves our bodies with limited resources to digest we eat each day. This enzyme deficit often leads to problematic nutritional deficiencies that play havoc with our bodies and health.
Digestive enzymes can be supplemented daily very easily. They are an integral part of daily micro-flora products called NZYMES Bak-Pac Plus for Pets, and NZYMES Pro-B for People.
