Enzymes serve as the body’s labor force to perform every single function required for our daily activities—they are required to keep us alive! To an amazingly large extent, enzymes are responsible for your health. They are needed for every chemical reaction that takes place in your body and are connected to every organ in your body. Enzymes run all of your life processes. They are catalysts and are required by your body to digest food and ensure the delivery of vitamins and minerals. They work within the cells to regulate detoxification and produce energy. Enzymes can prevent partially digested proteins from putrefying, carbohydrates from fermenting, and fats from turning rancid within your body. They have been described as the ‘live energy’ of all organisms. Cooking, chemicals, and food processing destroy the natural enzymes found in the foods you eat and therefore, enzymes are by far the most important supplement to be taken.
Enzymes from a plant-based source become active as soon as they enter the body whereas animal sources are only active within the small intestine in an alkaline setting. The following plant-based enzymes are included in our TOTAL ENZYME:
Peptidase: breaks down proteins, causing the release of amino acids.
Papin: breaks down protein and reduces inflammation in the body.
Amylase: breaks down carbohydrates, especially raw vegetables and beans.
Lactase: breaks down milk sugar and is used for lactose intolerance.
Malt Diastase: breaks down carbohydrates, specifically malt and grain sugars.
Bromelain: breaks down proteins and is beneficial for reducing inflammation.
Cellulase: breaks down fiber and frees nutrients in fruits and vegetables.
Lipase: breaks down fats and supports gallbladder function for fat utilization.
Betain: breaks down proteins and calcium in the stomach.
Pancreatin: assists the pancreas in breaking down starches, proteins and fats.
Collectively, these enzymes ensure the assimilation of vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats and carbohydrates and can help the body by supporting gall bladder function reducing inflammation decreasing lactose intolerance, and aiding general indigestion. In addition, ourformula facilitates the breakdown of calcium and protein in the stomach s well as the breakdown of fiber throughout the body.
The enzyme theory goes like this…your length of life is inversely proportional to the rate of exhaustion of your enzyme potential. The increased use of food enzymes promotes a decreased rate of exhaustion of the enzyme potential. In simple terms this means, the more enzymes you use at mealtime, the more you save the enzymes that run your organs and tissues, and you get to live longer and healthier.
Purpose: This formula compliments our Total Health Formula and Fatigue Formula when there is a need for additional enzymes.
Suggested Usage: Take 1-2 capsules before each meal.
