Enzymes are proteins that facilitate chemical reactions in living organisms. In fact, they are required for every single chemical action that takes place in your body. All of your tissues, muscles, bones, organs, and cells are run by enzymes. Your digestive system, immune system, blood stream, liver, kidneys, spleen, and pancreas, as well as your ability to see, think, feel, and breathe, (in fact, the very functioning of each and every cell in your body) all depend on enzymes. All of the minerals and vitamins you eat and all of the hormones your body produces need enzymes in order to work properly. In fact, every single metabolic function in your body is governed by enzymes. Your stamina, your energy level, your ability to utilize vitamins and minerals, and your immune system are all governed by enzymes.
Modern man is the only animal that eats a diet almost entirely devoid of live enzymes, mainly due to a high consumption of processed and cooked foods, which forces the pancreas and stomach to make up for the difference. As a result, virtually every American has an enlarged pancreas by the time he/she is 40, and significantly diminished stomach acid production by the time they are 50, as well as systemic inflammation, allergies, heart disease, and more. Supplementing with both digestive and proteolytic enzymes, therefore, is a key natural health remedy.
