There are several enzymes in your body with specialized roles –
they fall into general categories: lipases that break down fat, amylases that handle carbohydrates, and proteases that work on proteins. All aid in the digestion of our food. Some people take digestive enzymes to help break down food easier. Without taking digestive enzymes, you can't digest food properly, especially when the food is cooked. Because the enzymes in the food have been deactivated by heating. Even fresh fruits and vegetables, unless they are organically grown, are usually irradiated, which destroys the enzymes in them.
This destruction of the enzymes in food causes or makes worse, virtually
every digestive disorder there is. Gas, indigestion, acid reflux, you name it.
It is an underlying cause of many different types of health problems throughout
your body. Lack of live enzymes in our diet causes many degenerative diseases like diabetes and heart disease. So think about enzymes when you prepare food and when you choose what you are going to eat. Always choose something raw and uncooked to bring fresh enzymes into your gut along with the other food you consume. Your body will be happier. Can anyone think of an examples of foods we can choose to eat that have live enzymes in them?
