are protein molecules which are responsible for
all biological activities in human cells.
Nearly everyone has enzyme depletion
because our diets do not consist of mainly raw
fruit and vegetables. Enzymes are destroyed by
heat and most people eat cooked food - fast food,
junk food, boxed food, canned food.
"The human body
can do nothing without enzymes. All
metabolic functions require enzymes. Enzyme
levels, particularly in our immune system,
are depleted due to the overconsumption of
processed and cooked foods and the toll of
stress and environmental pollutants on our

reactions. They are responsible for supporting
almost all of the chemical reactions in living
cells. Their role is to maintain life process.

functions, all organs begin to weaken. They are

Howell, a noted pioneer in the field of enzyme
research, discovered enzyme depletion results

lowered resistance to stress of all types. He
points out that humans and animals on a diet
comprised largely of cooked food have enlarged
pancreas organs while other glands and organs,
notably the brain, actually shrink in size.

IMPORTANCE OF ENZYMES TO YOUR HEALTH:
Generally speaking, you will be healthy if the
enzymes in your body are functioning properly.
Once enzymes fail to perform their important
functions, all organs begin to weaken. This can
cause shoulder pain, general weakness of the
extremities, dizziness, poor appetite, etc. You
might not even be aware that you are sick. We
call this a state of "semi-health" - not really
healthy, yet not quite bad enough to call you
truly sick. If this situation continues, the
human body will be unable to fight off bacterial
invasion, then various sorts of diseases will
naturally follow including cancer.
- WHAT ARE THEY EXACTLY:
Enzymes are catalytic proteins - independent
molecules that have specific roles to play.
Scientists have discovered over 5,000 enzymes.
a) They spawn chemical reactions between two
substances to generate a new substance.
b) They regulate chemical processes in living
cells - All living cells contain enzymes.
Simply put, enzymes regulate the complex
processes of life itself.
regulate the normal processes of digestion,
absorption, waste removal and are essential to
the every function that makes human life
possible. Enzymes are not only the foundation
of human life, they are fundamental to health.
FALL INTO ONE OF THREE MAJOR CLASSIFICATIONS -
METABOLIC, DIGESTIVE OR FOOD:
1) The largest is the metabolic enzymes which
play a role in all bodily processes including
breathing, talking, moving, thinking, behavior
and maintenance of the immune system. A subset
of these metabolic enzymes acts to neutralize
poisons and carcinogens such as pollutants, DDT
and tobacco smoke, changing them into less toxic
forms that the body can eliminate.
2) The second category is the digestive enzymes, of which
there are about 22 in number. Most of these are
manufactured by the pancreas. They are secreted
by glands in the duodenum (a valve that
separates the stomach from the small intestine)
and work to break down the bulk of partially
digested food leaving the stomach.
3) The enzymes we need to
consider when planning our diets are the
third category, the food enzymes. These are
present in raw foods and they initiate the
process of digestion in the mouth and upper
stomach. Food enzymes include proteases for
digesting protein, lipases for digesting
fats and amylases for digesting
What do Enzymes Do:
Regulate Internal Functions.
Enzymes buffer internal acidity, maintain the
proper balance of beneficial bacteria in the
body, aid digestion, and strengthen resistance
to harmful bacteria. They serve to maintain and
enhance internal functions, and help restore you
to a state of living more complete rather than
living with just mediocre health.
Purify the Blood.
Cleansing: Enzymes are able to help
remove unwanted substances from the blood,
dissolve cholesterol attached to artery walls,
and prevent cardiovascular diseases caused by
high blood pressure.
Fighter: When good cells are damaged
and germs attack, enzymes in the body rally to
counter and fend off the bacteria. They then
break down and remove the festering germ and
alleviate the infection of the afflicted area.
At the same time, nutrients in your body are
induced to generate new cells and bring about
Bactericide: Enzymes not only enhance
the effectiveness of your leukocytes (white
blood cells) in killing harmful germs, they also
have anti-bacterial properties themselves.
Improve Digestion and Absorption.
Enzymes are able to metabolize nutrients thus
making them more easily digested, absorbed, and
oxidized - better utilized by the human body -
and so produce the needed energy and heat. They
also help to maintain hormonal balance.
a) Overeating - Enzymes
cleanse the stomach.
b) Intoxication - Enzymes
quickly break down the blood alcohol, preventing
inebriation or helping the recovery process
c) Poor gastrointestinal function
- Enzymes block the growth of the germs that
cause putrefaction in the intestines, promoting
the proliferation of lactic acid bacteria and
other beneficial bacteria, and aiding
d) Postoperative recuperation
- Enzymes aid food digestion and conversion into
products more easily absorbed. Especially
beneficial in the recovery of patients with
gastric and duodenal ulcers and ulcers of the

hemorrhoids - Enzymes aid in clearing
Sperm enzymes break down the wall surrounding

Improve Metabolic Cell

cells must be replaced by new ones every four
months. Only when the enzymes in the body are in
good balance is this process and the chemical
functions completed with a smooth transition
between cell decomposition and restoration. If
the enzymes don't work properly, disease may

Enzymes are one of the most
essential elements in your body for the
health and wellness of every bodily
function. Every breath you take and every
action you have both mentally and

Coconut flesh (not oil)
Yogurt (Greek, plain, unsweetened)
Shitake, Reishi, and Maitake mushrooms
Focus on an alkaline diet with lots of daily
raw veggies and fruit. Smoothies and Juicing
are the most effective and delicious way to
do this. Enzymes
are organic catalysts that increase the rate
at which foods are broken down and absorbed by
the body and help various metabolic
functions in the body take place.
