Enzymes are the component missing from most foods today, and are vital to your health, and to life itself! Enzymes are necessary for every chemical reaction in your body and the workings of your cells, organs, and tissues. They are essential for digesting your food, transporting vitamins and minerals where they are needed in your body, and creating the energy you need to function every day!
Enzymes come in three different types — metabolic enzymes, pancreatic enzymes, and plant or food enzymes. Your body needs all three to stay healthy. Metabolic enzymes run the body’s chemistry and are vital for functions like breathing, talking, thinking and moving. Pancreatic and food enzymes are digestive enzymes that control the entire digestive process and ensure your body is getting vital nutrients from the food you eat. While pancreatic enzymes are made by the pancreas, food enzymes are found in all raw foods and are also available in supplements.
Digestive enzymes generally fall into these major categories:
• Protease digests proteins
• Amylase digests carbohydrates
• Lipase digests fats
• Cellulase digests fiber
If you are missing just one type of enzyme, your digestive process will be thrown into chaos! If your body is unable to properly digest certain foods, you will experience consequences like food allergies, food intolerance, heartburn, vitamin deficiencies, and more!
