Why Digestive Enzymes Are Vital To Good Health!
Most digestive disorders develop because of the body’s inability to produce sufficient enzymes for health-enhancing digestion and proper nutrient absorption. Enzyme depletion results in improper digestion and absorption, leading to chronic disorders
Malabsorption is the inability of the cells of the body to obtain nutrients from the foods consumed. This inaction causes loss of vitamins, minerals, fiber and the caloric value (energy) of foods, resulting in cellular deprivation. Digestive malabsorption can occur as a result of the following condition:
- Insufficient time for large food molecules (protein, starch, fat) to be broken down by specific digestive enzymes.
- Improperly-functioning Pancreas, not capable of delivering enough digestive enzymes to the small intestine to break down large molecules; thus, nutrient absorption becomes minimal or nonexistent.
- The development of a condition known as Cleaky gut syndrome in which the membrane walls of the intestine lining become permeable, allowing undigested food to be leaded into the bloodstream.
The work of digestive enzymes is to break down food materials into components that are absorbable and, in addition, produce substances that assist in emulsifying fats into forms that can be readily absorbed into the blood.
Enzymes are necessary for life!
Everything that lives requires enzymes including humans, plants and animals.
Enzymes are a protein-based substance found in every living cell.
Important Life-Enhancing Functions of Enzymes:
Aids digestive functioning
Assists healing abilities.
Assists respiratory function.
Assists glucose balance.
Dissolves blood clots.
Immune stimulator to build-up natural resistance to disease
The actions of enzymes facilitate all of lifes processes and molecular integrity.
Another effect of low enzyme activity is fermentation, the basis for intestinal disorders. This process is encouraged when the diet contains carbohydrates and sugars that remain in the intestinal tract rather than being absorbed into the bloodstream. These unabsorbed substances constitute the most common source of intestinal gas and discomfort.
