ENZYMESks_wsid = 0;
Most enzymes come from foods and need to be replenished. Every cell has 100.000 enzymes. Enzymes break down every part of the food we eat (proteins, fats, and sugars).
Enzymes are proteins that speed up all biological and chemical reactions but do not start these reactions. They require nutrient helpers as vitamins, minerals and other proteins (co enzymes).
The most important enzymes come from the pancreas. If inadequate supplies are present, foods will pass undigested. Enzymes in the bowel have lactase to break down the sugar in milk and milk products.
If deficient in lactase there is as and bloating. If there is an alpha galactodase deficiency there is gas and cramping after eating beans, cabbage and cauliflower.
PANCREATIC ENZYMES are used to kill viruses by digesting their protein coats. They also dissolve the coating of cancer cells so the white blood cells and immune system can destroy the cancer
Should a healthy person take enzymes? Plant enzymes are found in raw vegetables, nuts, and seeds. They act on the food in the stomach and help predigest the food. (Acid in the stomach neutralizes the plant enzymes).
However if you only eat cooked food, you lose the benefit of predigestion. Plant enzymes are deactivated by pasteurization, canning, micro waving, and cooking above 118 degrees.
If the pancreas must make more enzymes and cannot keep up, the colon becomes toxic with wastes and toxins. These toxins get to the liver and the immune system is disturbed.
This results in infection, cancer, allergies, or acne. The solution is to get some added enzymes from fresh uncooked foods.
