ENZYME NUTRITION

STOP TREATING SYMPTOMS START HEALING

Nutritional deficiency in the diet has been postulated as the major cause of chronic disease in this country. Unfortunately, 99% of doctors are completely unaware of the dietary importance of ENZYMES. The reason for this lack of knowledge among doctors is that the pharmaceutical companies cannot patent their use and thus invest nothing to research ENZYMES.

What are Enzymes?

EZYMES are very large complex protein molecules. They are responsible for the pre-digestion of our food. ENZYMES need to be activated in order for them to do their very specific work. Besides moisture, they require three things to become active: the proper temperature, the proper pH, (acid or alkaline), and the right substrate (or material) to break down. For example, protease, the enzyme that breaks down protein will only work on protein, not carbohydrate.

ENZYMES run every biochemical reaction in our body. This means that enzymes do the “work” in the body whereas vitamins and minerals, also known as coenzymes , are only the building blocks. What is poorly understood is how important enzymes are to digestion and to the concept of staying healthy. Think of ENZYMES as the workers or builders of a house. The house is made up of raw materials called: Proteins, carbohydrates, fats, fiber, vitamins and minerals. The ENZYMES put all of the raw materials together to build the house. If there are no ENZYMES present, the house wont be built. If there are very few enzymes present, it will take years to build the house.

Enzymes also nourish the immune system. The immune system is responsible for keeping us from getting sick by destroying bad bacteria and viruses.
