Why Are Enzymes Important?
Enzymes are proteins that are found in all living things either within the cells or dissolved in the fluids surrounding all cells. Enzymes make it possible to control metabolic reactions that otherwise either would not take place under normal physiological conditions, or which would only take place very slowly. The body’s entire metabolic process is based on the activation, inhibition, and control of enzymes. Enzymes sustain life by controlling the chemical reactions needed for every process in the body. One of the main reasons some people don’t digest food well is because their diets contain a large amount of processed foods. Processing and cooking destroys nearly all of the enzymes naturally present in food. Digestive enzymes break down food into basic components so that the body can absorb the nutrients required to build cells, tissues, and organs. New Earth’s SBG Zymes Plus help break down fats, carbohydrates, and fiber, and support many other vital functions. Our proprietary formula contains a wide range of enzymes with high activity levels for optimal aid in the digestion process. Zymes Plus uses lipase to break down fat, protease to break down protein, cellulase to assist in the breakdown of fiber, and amylase to break down starch.With thirteen active enzymes (including MycoProZyme™, the first enzyme on the market that works in a low pH environment), as well as Super Blue Green® Algae, fennel, ginger, and cayenne, SBG Zymes Plus are a strong addition to any diet.
Two Kinds of Enzymes
Enzymes can be grouped into two main categories. First are metabolic enzymes, which are present in every cell, tissue, and organ in the body, and act as biochemical catalysts in the moment-to-moment functioning of living cells. These enzymes are responsible for keeping the body in proper balance by controlling almost every chemical reaction associated with metabolism.The second category of enzymes is digestive enzymes, which can be separated into intrinsic and extrinsic digestive enzymes. The body manufactures and secretes intrinsic digestive enzymes to break down food. The salivary glands in the mouth, the gastric glands in the stomach, and specific cells in the pancreas secrete the enzymes that work to digest proteins, fats, and sugars present in the food we eat. Examples of digestive enzymes are protease, which digests protein; amylase, which digests starch; and lipase, which digests fat.Extrinsic digestive enzymes (also called food enzymes) come from raw foods like fruits and vegetables. Most food that is grown fresh contains enough active enzymes to digest the proteins, starches, or fats found in that food. This makes digestion of these raw foods easier for the body.
What Happens Without Food Enzymes?
Poor digestive activity due to a lack of food enzymes can be the indirect cause of many health problems. The immune system is put under undue stress due to the constant day-to-day stimulation of the immune system by unwanted food particles and this adds to tiring the whole body. This often explains the energy drain many people experience following a meal. Furthermore, some food particles can trigger the production of antibodies that may cross-react with proteins in the body, leading to autoimmune disorders. Putrefaction in the gut caused by undigested food may jeopardize the wall of the intestine, allowing various environmental toxins present in food to find their way into the blood and the body. Our cells then have to work overtime to get rid of potentially harmful toxins and that causes unnecessary stress for our bodies.Processing or cooking foods with heat destroys enzymes which means they can not act in the process of pre-digestion. Under these conditions, food that passes into the intestine has not been properly predigested, causing the pancreatic enzymes to not handled them efficiently.These undigested particles may be detrimental to health in two ways. First, they become fuel for unfriendly intestinal bacteria, which can lead to intestinal fermentation, bloating, and discomfort. Second, undigested particles of food may cross the intestinal wall and reach the blood stream where the immune system identifies them as foreign substances. When this happens, the body’s immune system wastes precious defense resources on a “false alarm” rather than defending the body from true hazards.
Adding Enzymes to Diet
Adding food enzymes to your diet aids in pre-digestion occurring in the stomach, which ensures efficient digestion and healthy absorption of nutrients throughout the intestine.
When food is predigested adequately in the stomach, the particles of food passed down into the intestine are in a form suitable for the pancreatic enzymes to take action. Pancreatic enzymes can then properly digest food into single nutrients that are absorbed into the blood.
