ENZYMES MAKE YOUR INSIDES WORK
Enzymes are energized proteins found in all living cells. They catalyze and regulate biochemical reactions. These proteins make digestion possible. They remove toxins so your body can use good nutrients.
Enzyme supplements provide a broad spectrum of enzymes because there is a particular enzyme for every snack, fruit, vegetable and buffet plate.* The reason many people are lactose intolerant is because they lack the enzyme lactase, which digests milk sugars. Digestive enzymes make food more bio-accessible, support healthy bacterial growth in the gut, encourage healthy digestive and immune system function, promote increased energy and may help skin health by supporting healthy blood flow.*
All Things Great and Small
Digestive enzymes are the most important proteins in your body. Everything you ingest encounters enzymes which are built specifically to break down certain foods. In the intestines, pancreas and gallbladder, enzymes separate nutrients from waste, assimilate nutrients into the multifarious organs, tissues and cells throughout the body, and then send waste out the bum-bum.
Enzymes are connected to every organ, tissue and cell in the body.
Our bodies use up digestive enzymes, so we have to get more from raw foods and supplements.* Any cooked, processed or treated foods are often devoid of enzymes.
A Light for Every Star
The pancreas produces fewer and fewer enzymes as we age, which means the older we get, the less easily we're able to digest food. More nutrients pass through the digestive tract unheeded, and quickly become waste or get stored as fat.
No two people are alike, and no two digestive systems function the same way. Some people break down food better than others. If you lack digestive enzyme production or eat large quantities of food, digestive enzyme supplementation may help.* You need to ingest proper enzymes to match your diet. If you are carb-loading, you need to take an enzyme which breaks down carbs.
These Different Proteins Function Differently
Each of these digestive enzymes is involved in the digestion of proteins, fats, sugars and carbohydrates.
Protease: digestion for dietary proteins; supports healthy immune system function on an empty stomach.*
Peptidase: catalyzes the splitting of proteins into smaller peptide reactions and amino acids.*
Papain: breaks down protein found in meat fibers.*
Invertase: breaks down sucrose.*
Amylase: digests carbs, starches, glycogen and polysaccharides.*
Lipase: digests fats, lipids and improves fat utilization; supports gallbladder function; takes stress off the pancreas, gallbladder and liver.*
Lactase: digests the milk sugar lactose.*
Cellulase: breaks down fiber; the body doesn't produce cellulose--we get it through the foods we eat.*
A Few More Facts About Enzymes
Digestive enzymes can prevent partially-digested proteins from putrefying, carbohydrates from fermenting, and fats from turning rancid in your systems.* Plant-based enzymes become active as soon as they enter the body. Animal source enzymes are digested only in the small intestine.
If food isn't properly digested it can become waste product. A proper system processes fat efficiently.
All foods must be digested by enzymes. The quality of that digestion depends on the presence of the proper enzymes in your system. If you don't have the proper enzyme for a specific food type, your body cannot digest it. That's where supplementation can save the day, or at least limit waste.*
