The only digestive enzymes that really work!
What is an enzyme? It has been said that enzymes are the protein molecules responsible for certain functions in the body, such as digesting food, building bones and other tissues, and aiding in detoxification. A protein molecule is actually the carrier of enzyme activity. In his book, "Food Enzymes", Dr. Humbert Santillo gives the analogy that proteins are like a light bulb and that enzymes are the electrical current that makes the light bulb work. How all this ties in with nutrition is that the natural foods that we eat contain their own enzymes and are really healthy and great for your body - until you cook, microwave or process them. The food then becomes like the light bulb with no electrical current to make it do its job.
Cooking our food at over 118 degrees, microwaving and processing kills all the enzymes in that food. We can eat all the healthy food and take all the vitamins and supplements we want but unless the enzymes are there they are not very effective in maintaining a healthy body. We'll cover more of this later but first lets go over the different types of enzymes, what they are and what they do.
There are basically three types of enzymes: food enzymes, digestive enzymes and metabolic enzymes. Food enzymes are found in any kind of natural unprocessed food and are said to aid in the digestion or breakdown of that food. Take an apple for example. If you take a bite out of an apple and set it on the counter for a while it will start to turn brown and soft. That is the enzyme amalayse in the apple that is causing the apple to breakdown and digest itself. The same thing happens to meat and fats. When an animal dies, the enzyme cathepsin begins the digestion process on the meat and the enzyme lipase breaks down the fats. All of these enzymes, amalayse, cathepsin and lipase occur naturally in the plants and animals that we eat.
The second type of enzymes are digestive enzymes. These are enzymes that we are born with, they occur naturally in the body, and their purpose is to aid the food enzymes in digestion. The most commonly known digestive enzymes are secreted from the pancreas into the stomach and small intestine. They are protease, which breaks down protiens, amalayse for breaking down carbohydrates, lipase for the breakdown of fats, and cellulase for fiber.
The third type are metabolic enzymes which are responsible for the rebuilding of the body. Every organ, every bone, every hair is rejuvinated or replaced and its all done by metabolic enzymes. Every function of the body depends on these enzymes as well as breathing, moving your limbs, and even thinking takes metabolic enzymes.
As mentioned above, the body is born with it's own supply of digestive enzymes. Another way to think about it is like having your own bank account of enzymes. By putting cooked, microwaved or processed foods (foods with no live enzymes left) into your body, your body is then forced to draw on it's own account of enzymes, metabolic and digestive, to do the job. Eventually we deplete our account and the body has to completey rely on itself, pulling from the enzyme and immune system to digest food instead of rebuilding the body and fighting illness.
Many of todays food allergies stem from the lack of certain enzymes. Joint pain and gout come from undigested protiens, fats and minerals that form uric acid crystals, that in turn get caught in joints. Yeast and fungal growth can start with undigested foods in the blood stream and are compounded by the white flour and sugars we eat which feed the yeast and fungus. Extreme fatigue may be caused by an inability to digest protiens and fats, which cause the blood cells to clump together and not circulate like they should. When the blood is clumped it can not carry as much oxygen and can result in fatigue and slow and muddled thinking. The white blood cells have a difficult time moving around and getting where they need to be when they're caught in the sluggish, clumped blood as well. These are just a few of the many examples of what can and does happen to our bodies as a direct result of what we ingest.
This may give you the idea that you need to eat all of your foods raw and that is not necessarily so. Another consideration we have to take is the environment that we live in. It is not what it used to be, with all the population that is so prevalent and with soil deprivation, our foods are only a fraction as nutritious as they might have been a century ago. It is also completely unsafe (not to mention unappealing) to eat raw meat. There are too many deadly viruses in raw meat so please don't do that! And don't be discouraged. Through all the technology out there today we have at least found a way to put back what we take away. Just by taking enzymes with the meals that we eat can start replenishing our already taxed, and in some cases depleted, enzyme accounts. Continue to eat healthy foods, and eat raw fruits and vegetables as much as possible that provide your light bulb. Then when you take your enzyme supplements with each meal-- You will give the bulb the new power it needs to do it's job-- to give off light and energy.
Plant enzymes are more precious than gold or diamonds. Your body requires enzymes to regulate every biochemical and metabolic process in our bodies as well as all living things. Why plant enzymes versus animal or fruit derived enzymes like Papain, Pancreatin, Oxbile? First of all, plant enzymes are active in a broad pH range of 2 to 12 and temperature ranges of 75 to 122ºF, well within the human body's normal temperature and pH ranges. Animal enzymes do not activate until they reach the higher pH of the small intestinal tract so they are not going to very effective at aiding the body in pre-digestion or be active in the upper alkaline portion of the stomach. Papains optimum temperature of activity is between 140º and 158ºF. way too high above the body's temperature, to be utilized in aiding in digestion.
The Health Nuts group utilizes only plant based enzymes from the aspergillus source. These enzymes are Protease, Lipase, Amylase, Cellulase, Sucrase, Invertase (Maltase), Lactase. Ultimate EnzymesTM also contains Bromelain. This is a full spectrum complete formulation.
ONE OF A KIND: Ultimate EnzymesTM containes the following enzymes and activity in each 400 mg capsule:
|75,000||HUT Protease||Digests Protien into amino acids|
|15,000||SKB Amylase||Digests complex carbohydrates|
|5,000||LU Lipase||Digests fats and denatured fatty oils|
|200||CU Cellulase||Digests fibers from soluble sources|
|100||SU Sucrase||Digests complex sugars and starches|
|250||DP Maltase||Digests disaccharides to mono saccharides|
|500||Lac U Lactase||Digests Lactose or dairy sugars|
|100||GDU Bromalain||Is a protein enzyme that also digests proteins|
|15 MG||Ionic minerals||w/Alfalfa|
Protalase enzymes have also been found to increase the immune systems macrophage (or white blood cell) activity by up to 700 percent and increase T-cell (cancer fighting cell) production and activity by as much as 1300 percent with a very short period of time after ingestion. Also, plant enzymes have been shown in clinical studies to help with the following symptoms: It may relieve heartburn, gas, bloating, indegestion, belching, headaches, diarrhea, constipation, chronic fatigue, yeast infections, nutritional deficiencies, stomach problems, colon, liver, and pancreas problems. May also help with obesity, cancers, heart disease, cholesterol, diabetes, allergies, plaque build up, high blood pressure, and a host of other degenerative conditions including arthritis.
Almost all degenerative diseases stem from a lack of complete digestion and improper elimination of what we ingest into our bodies. So for the highest activity and complete digestion take 2 to 3 Ultimate EnzymesTM capsules with every meal and snack and start living the life you were genetically designed for.
