Enzymes are natures catalysts which greatly speed up chemical processes and reactions. In doing so, enzymes make life possible. In some cases, reaction speeds are increased by more than one billion times, making possible functions such as digesting food, complex brain functions and the repairing of tissues.
There are two basic types of enzymes:
- Systemic or metabolic enzymes
- Digestive enzymes
Metabolic enzymes spark the reactions within the cells of the body. The body's organs, tissues, and cells are enabled by metabolic enzymes. Without them, the body's functions would not exist.
Digestive enzymes are found in raw foods, as well as produced in the body. Their function is to break down food particles so they can be absorbed.
Processing food puts a strain on our digestion. Enzymes that can break down food are present in all foods including animal products. However, the heat from cooking and processing kills these enzymes (including pasteurization in the case of milk). If enzymes are not present when we eat, food will not be broken down completely, and a greater strain is put on the digestive system. We are more likely to suffer from indigestion and stomach discomfort - the bloated/heavy feeling and embarrassing gas. Additionally, as the body ages, the digestive enzymes produced in our bodies decreases, which makes the indigestion problem even worse.
