Digestive Enzymes

Dr. Edward Howell has devoted his life to research on enzymes. He says that enzymes, and in particular herbal-based enzymes, are the missing and essential link to attaining and maintaining radiant health. Enzymes are involved in every metabolic process in the body. They increase our stamina, energy level, increase our ability to utilize vitamins, minerals, herbs and other nutrients. They enhance our immune system to heal the blood, organs and tissues in the body. If enzymes are not present to digest food or the supplementation being taken, the body will be unable to extract the nutrients in food. If enzymes are not available for work in the tissues, the nutrients cannot be assimilated or effectively put to work. Also, by taking digestive enzymes, it makes your other supplements more accessible to the body.*

There are two categories of enzymes, metabolic and digestive. When we have exhausted our supply of dietary enzymes, we then rob the metabolic pool of enzymes. When we must use our metabolic enzymes to digest our food, we cause our body to age more quickly and we increase the number of ailments in the body. Metabolic enzymes are needed to remove fat from our blood vessels, to make hormones, to make neurotransmitters in the brain, to think, and so much more. Metabolic enzymes are active in every organ, tissue and fluid of the body and determine every biochemical action and reaction. Our body is a series of thousands of enzymatic reactions, and without them, the body would be nothing but inorganic matter.*

Enzymes are very fragile and are very heat sensitive. When you cook your food over 118o F. the enzymes are destroyed, even though there are still other nutrients in the food. If we do not have the enzymes, we cannot make use of these other nutrients. Even the fresh, raw foods we eat may be enzyme deficient. The way our food is raised with minimal amounts of nutrients added back to the soil, pesticides used, and harvesting foods too early produces plants and their fruits which otherwise look healthy enough, but when tested are very deficient in nutrients and enzymes. Dr. Howell concludes in his research that the decreasing enzyme activity is directly related to the increase of disease and chronic “the length and quality of life is directly proportional to the level of enzyme activity in the body”.
