Our bodies require enzymes to improve skin health, reduce pain, and, in general, function. Look better and feel healthier by healing the body with enzymes.
Enzymes are protein molecules that act as biological catalysts for all functions of the body. Every mode of cellular mechanics all the way to the movement patterns of our extremities requires an enzymatic spark to initiate. At birth, we’re provided an enzyme blueprint called metabolic or life enzymes. This is the body’s enzyme set-point intended to last your entire life. Due to the intensity of modern day living, our biological clocks are sped up, causing an acceleration of enzyme usage. When someone who was once very healthy or even reasonably healthy starts experiences chronic aches, pains, muscular tension, joint pain, and overall delayed healing, this indicates their enzyme supply has begun to tank out. This can also be applied to skin issues that lead to the degradation of your natural beauty.
The life cycles of all organisms begin and end with enzymes. Well educated physicians can test someone for a pre-morbid (pre-death) state by the level of proteolytic enzymes in their blood. We know excessive undigested proteins are the leading cause of kidney failure worldwide. If the body becomes unable to enzymatically break down protein molecules floating in our vascular system, they will accumulate and lodge in the tissue matrix of the body. The most visible use of enzyme supplementation is for digestion. The role of dig7estion is carried out by enzymes as a last resort and only done when you eat an improper diet that does not match their unique design.
The foundational study of enzymes was brought forth by the late, world-renowned enzymologist Dr. Edward Howell. The principle difference between raw foods and cooked foods is that when high heat treatment (115–120 degrees Fahrenheit) is applied to food, its enzyme count is diminished. This causes a biological compromise where the body must compensate in order to metabolize enzyme-deficient foods. This compromise comes in the form of donating metabolic enzymes from all over the body to the digestive system in order to break down accumulated food. Normally those metabolic enzymes would carry out functions of healing such as patching up scar tissue, clearing arterial blockages, reducing inflammation, and knitting together torn tendons, ligaments, and muscle fibers. When the body is unable to digest stored calories (fats, proteins) these worker enzymes are distributed to the digestive terrain, thus leaving inflammation to proliferate. Dr. Edward Howell has maintained that all forms of bodily breakdown and physiological disease are largely in part to a diet lacking in enzymes.
It has been estimated by the American Nutrition Association that approximately 107,000 patients are hospitalized annually for non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). The New England Journal of Medicine in June 1999 stated, "It has been estimated conservatively that 16,500 NSAID-related deaths occur among patients with rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis every year in the United States.” Of all the NSAID injuries, Gastrointestinal hemorrhaging ranks as the most common in association with liver failure, kidney failure, and severe dehydration. This is a massively unnecessary risk to take for something that may be as simple as increasing medium to high dosages of systemic enzymes and water rich fruits, vegetables, and superfoods.
When looking to purchase enzymes, make sure they are proteolytic dominant, meaning they are protein-based enzymes and not amylase dominant. Proteolytic enzymes are largely responsible for systemic healing, reduced inflammation, and increased digestive recovery.
