Enzymes are often referred as the sparks of life. Without them we simply cannot function.
Most people are deficient in digestive enzymes and start borrowing from their metabolic stores. As we age our ability to produce digestive enzymes in the pancreas, stomach and small intestine decreases. This is why it is so important to include raw food (vegetables and fruits) in or daily diet as they are loaded in live enzymes. Cooked and processed food is death food. If we don’t eat enough raw food it is good to supplement that.
Enzymes are therapeutic and supportive when taken on empty stomach away from meals. In cancer therapy proteolytic enzymes have the ability to digest the protective membrane known as fibrin around cancer cells allowing the immune system to identity and destroy them. Protease enzymes have the ability to be absorbed in the blood were they bind to a large protein called Alpha II macroglobulin and then able to break viruses, fungal forms such as Candida, bacteria and parasites.
Every day we should contribute to our depleted enzyme bank accounts, by taking few servings of raw veggies and fruits or simply by taking a proper supplement...for some of us taking a pill it is easier :))
...so I’m just ready to make a healthy shake for breakfast: I cup of Kefir, one leaf of fresh organic kale and a spoon of organic sprouted milled flax seed powder...(everything mixed in a blender)
