Most of us probably didn’t know we had an enzyme potential! I know I didn’t!
Now for the bad news. Our bodies can’t make our own enzymes.
Raw foods contain the enzymes for digestion. More bad news… Cooking destroys enzymes. All forms of cooking, destroy all enzymes.
So how can we replenish our enzyme bank?
Suggestion 1 – eat all raw food – this is not a doable solution for almost everyone , can you imagine eating raw meat, seafood and all raw vegetables? I sure can’t.
Suggestion 2 – eat a good quantity of raw food – OK I can probably do this some of the time, I love raw carrots and salad veges, but I couldn’t eat raw potatoes and lots of other veges.
Suggestion 3 – supplement with a rich source of natural enzymes – OK this is easy to do if I can find the right product. And I can tell you that I have. Click on the TurboZymes link below to find out more.
Bio Enzymes may be something you associate with getting stains out of your clothes “in the wash”, but I’m talking about something else entirely.
And it’s important! Here are the facts:-
We are all born with an inbuilt “enzyme potential”.
Our inbuilt enzyme potential is a limited resource.
Our enzyme “bank” It gets depleted by:-
Eating cooked foods
Having an unhealthy lifestyle.
What are enzymes and what do they do for us?
Enzymes are energized protein molecules. They are responsible for all biological activities in our 60 trillion cells. They are essential for every chemical reaction in our bodies.
As Dr Edward Howell says – “It runs down, health suffers and if it runs out, life ends”
In his book Enzyme Nutrition, he describes the effects of depleting your body’s enzyme bank as, ” . . . one of the paramount causes of premature aging and early death. I also believe it’s the underlying cause of almost all degenerative disease.”
Dr. Howell continues, “To begin with, if the body is overburdened [in supplying] enzymes to the saliva, gastric juice, pancreatic juice and intestinal juice, then it must curtail the production of enzymes for other purposes. If this occurs, then how can the body also make enough enzymes to run the brain, heart, kidneys, lungs, muscles and other organs and tissues?” According to Dr. Howell, “This ‘stealing’ of enzymes from other parts of the body to service the digestive tract sets up a competition for enzymes among the various organ systems and tissues of the body. The resulting metabolic dislocations may be the direct cause of cancer, coronary heart disease, diabetes, and many other chronic incurable disease.”
It our own responsibility to replenish our own enzymes to improve our health, longevity and quality of life. In this series I will be letting you know how to replenish your enzyme bank, naturally.
Enzyme Deficiency, what is it and how do you avoid it?
It’s something you probably never heard of, or thought about. I know I didn’t. So what is it about? Enzymes are the miracle nutrient vital for health.
We are all born with an “enzyme potential”. Our personal enzyme potential depends on our genes, something we can’t control. When our enzyme “bank” runs out, health suffers and life ends.
Every function of your body requires enzymes to make it happen. Without enzymes we wouldn’t be able to:-
Basically we wouldn’t be able to exist. Put simply, we would die.
It all sounds a bit dramatic, but it’s true. Our cells degenerate fast if you have an enzyme deficiency, causing aging and sickness.
However, enzymes aren’t forever, they have a limited life and must be replaced regularly. The problem is that you can’t get enzymes from cooked food. Every time we eat cooked food we make a withdrawal from your enzyme bank. Conversely each time you take an enzyme supplement you make a deposit. Eating enzyme-rich raw food is a good start, but it doesn’t count as a deposit as the enzymes required to digest a certain food are contained in that food.
So how can you increase the balance at your enzyme bank? Enzyme supplements. What is the best type of supplement? A complex bio enzyme supplement created using many fresh, raw fruits and vegetables to deliver a broad range of enzymes, in a pre-digested liquid form.
