The Importance of
Most people lack enzymes,
the spark plugs of the body, and critical
Enzymes are protein
molecules which are responsible for all
biological activities in human cells.
Nearly everyone has enzyme depletion because our
diets do not consist of mainly raw fruit and
vegetables. Enzymes are destroyed by heat and
most people eat cooked food - fast food, junk
food, boxed food, canned food.
"The human body can do
nothing without enzymes. All metabolic functions
require enzymes. Enzyme levels, particularly in
our immune system, are depleted due to the
overconsumption of processed and cooked foods
and the toll of stress and environmental
pollutants on our bodies."

"Enzymes are proteins that catalyze chemical
reactions. They are responsible for supporting
almost all of the chemical reactions in living
cells. Their role is to maintain life process.
Once enzymes fail to perform their important
functions, all organs begin to weaken. They are
critical to health."

Enzymes aid digestion and nutritional
absorption, release vital nutrients, protect
cells, boost energy and more.

- Suffer from malnutrition.
- Take prescription medications - many drugs
are enzyme inhibitors.
- Are sick or are recovering from an illness -
have a poor immune system.

enhance longevity, energy levels and
weight loss. All living
cells contain enzymes, the
body's 'spark plugs'.
Enzymes are destroyed by
Dr. Edward Howell, a noted pioneer in the field
of enzyme research, discovered enzyme depletion
results in is a shortened life-span, illness,
and lowered resistance to stress of all types.
He points out that humans and
animals on a diet comprised largely of cooked
food have enlarged pancreas organs while
other glands and organs, notably the brain,
actually shrink in size.
Children and enzyme
Learning disabilities are often caused by
nutrient deficiencies. The majority of
deficiencies are caused by foods that lack
enzymes - too much cooked food, junk food,
processed food, etc. The child's body becomes
toxic and the nerves become irritated. - Source:

The importance of enzymes:
Generally speaking, you will be healthy if the
enzymes in your body are functioning properly.
Once enzymes fail to perform their important
functions, all organs begin to weaken. This can
cause shoulder pain, general weakness of the
extremities, dizziness, poor appetite, etc.
You might not even be aware
that you are sick. We call this a state of
"semi-health" - not really healthy, yet not
quite bad enough to call you truly sick. If this
situation continues, the human body will be
unable to fight off bacterial invasion, then
various sorts of diseases will naturally follow
What are enzymes exactly:
Enzymes are catalytic proteins -
independent molecules that have specific roles
to play. Scientists have discovered over 5,000
spawn chemical reactions between two substances
to generate a new substance.
regulate chemical processes in living cells -
All living cells contain enzymes.
Simply put, enzymes regulate
the complex processes of life itself.
Enzymes regulate the normal
processes of digestion, absorption, waste
removal and are essential to the every function
that makes human life possible. Enzymes are not
only the foundation of human life, they are
fundamental to health.
fall into one of three major classifications
- metabolic, digestive or food:
1) The largest is
the metabolic enzymes which
play a role in all bodily processes including
breathing, talking, moving, thinking, behavior
and maintenance of the immune system. A subset
of these metabolic enzymes acts to neutralize
poisons and carcinogens such as pollutants, DDT
and tobacco smoke, changing them into less toxic
forms that the body can eliminate.
second category is the digestive
enzymes, of which there are about 22
in number. Most of these are manufactured by the
pancreas. They are secreted by glands in the
duodenum (a valve that separates the stomach
from the small intestine) and work to break down
the bulk of partially digested food leaving the
enzymes we need to consider when planning our
diets are the third category, the food
enzymes. These are present in raw
foods and they initiate the process of digestion
in the mouth and upper stomach.
include proteases for digesting protein,
lipases for digesting fats and amylases for
What do enzymes do:
1) Regulate Internal
Enzymes buffer internal acidity, maintain the
proper balance of beneficial bacteria in the
body, aid digestion, and strengthen resistance
to harmful bacteria. They serve to maintain and
enhance internal functions, and help restore you
to a state of living more complete rather than
living with just mediocre health.
2) Purify the
a) Blood Cleansing: Enzymes are able to help
remove unwanted substances from the blood,
dissolve cholesterol attached to artery walls,
and prevent cardiovascular diseases caused by
high blood pressure.
b) Infection Fighter: When
good cells are damaged and germs attack, enzymes
in the body rally to counter and fend off the
bacteria. They then break down and remove the
festering germ and alleviate the infection of
the afflicted area. At the same time, nutrients
in your body are induced to generate new cells
and bring about full recovery.
c) Bactericide: Enzymes not
only enhance the effectiveness of your
leukocytes (white blood cells) in killing
harmful germs, they also have anti-bacterial
Digestion and Absorption.
Enzymes are able to metabolize nutrients thus
making them more easily digested, absorbed, and
oxidized - better utilized by the human body -
and so produce the needed energy and heat. They
also help to maintain hormonal balance.
- Enzymes cleanse the stomach.
- Enzymes quickly break down the blood alcohol,
preventing inebriation or helping the recovery
process after intoxication.
gastrointestinal function - Enzymes
block the growth of the germs that cause
putrefaction in the intestines, promoting the
proliferation of lactic acid bacteria and other
beneficial bacteria, and aiding gastrointestinal
recuperation - Enzymes aid food
digestion and conversion into products more
easily absorbed. Especially beneficial in the
recovery of patients with gastric and duodenal
ulcers and ulcers of the large intestine.
e) Constipation and
hemorrhoids - Enzymes aid in clearing
f) Sperm enzymes break
down the wall surrounding the ovum enabling the
two to combine and generate new life.
Metabolic Cell Function.
Human body cells have metabolic functions, Old
cells must be replaced by new ones every four
months. Only when the enzymes in the body are in
good balance is this process and the chemical
functions completed with a smooth transition
between cell decomposition and restoration. If
the enzymes don't work properly, disease may
a. Promotes smooth, fine-textured, beautiful
b. Removes freckles, black spots and prevents
c. Removes rashes, and is good for skin
allergies and hives.
d. Clears red eyes and is effective in promoting
e. Nourishes and promotes hair and nail growth.
7) Enzymes and
Preventative Health Care.
a. Promote long life through normal cell
b. Promote re-activation of cells to prevent
c. Effective in preventing, combating and
eliminating cancer, and also for the prevention
of infections associated with AIDS.
Enzymes should be consumed
To avoid illness and disease, obesity and to
slow aging, you have to change lifestyle habits,
eat a balanced
diet and get proper exercise.
Despite your best intentions,
there are going to be the unavoidable late
nights, the occasional excessive eating, lack of
and the stress and pressure of daily life. Any
one of these can have the direct or cumulative
effect of weakening the normal functioning of
one of the most essential elements in your
body for the health and wellness of every
bodily function. Every breath you take and
every action you have both mentally and
physically, requires enzymes.
for daily enzymes:
Include these foods in your diet as often as
Coconut flesh (not oil)
Yogurt (Greek, plain, unsweetened)
Shitake, Reishi, and Maitake mushrooms
Focus on an alkaline diet with lots of daily
raw veggies and fruit. Smoothies and Juicing
are the most effective and delicious way to do
this. Enzymes are organic catalysts that
increase the rate at which foods are broken
down and absorbed by the body and help various
metabolic functions in the body take place.
and Green Smoothies
- a total health formula.
Use a banana as the base, then add seasonal
berries or other fruit of choice.
Frozen fruit can be used, but drink will become
like home-made ice cream - defrost first.
Green (Veggie) Smoothies:
Use banana as base, then add veggies such as
spinach, kale, cucumber, carrot, avocado etc.
Apples and pears are a good choice to combine
with green smoothies veggies.
About half cup of Almond Milk is then added to
either smoothie to blend ingredients. Plain
Greek Yogurt or Coconut Milk are also choices.
Coconut Flakes, Walnuts or Almonds plus Bee
Pollen, Hemp Seeds or Chi Seeds may be added by
Research the internet for ingredient
combinations to try.
Expect? Health and Anti-aging!
Not only will your body and brain be boosted
with enzyme activity, your skin will glow, your
eyes shine, wrinkles will diminish, your nails
and hair will grow faster, fat and cellulite may
be lessened, energy levels will rise, mental
focus will sharpen.
