- Digestive Enzyme
Enzymes perform daily activities that are required to keep us alive. They are responsible for all of the functions of every organ system in the body. Enzymes are found naturally in foods we eat. They make possible the chemical reactions which digest our food and break it down to useable, absorbable nutrients. Enzymes are the life force found in foods and then transferred to our bodies to keep every system functioning.
Enzymes found naturally in foods are destroyed at temperatures of 118Â°F and above. That means that almost any kind of food preparation destroys enzymes. Anytime you cook, microwave, fry, bake, or grill your foods, you are eating enzyme-deficient foods. The human body must produce enzymes to facilitate the biochemical reactions that control the digestive functions of the body. Enzymes perform a specific function in the body that no other can fulfill. Because enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 118Â°F and above, most of the foods we eat are enzyme-deficient. When the body is depleted of enzymes, resources needed for digestion are not readily available to accomplish other tasks; such as warding off disease, delaying the aging process or burning stored body fat. Without adequate enzymes in the body, eating cooked and processed foods can lead to frequent sickness, premature aging and increased storage of body fat. A lack of enzymes can lead to countless other problems such as decreased hormone production, inhibiting cellular repair and can cause chronic digestive problems.
Probiotics are living organisms-also known as friendly bacteria or flora-that colonize and flourish in the healthy intestine. Probiotic are beneficial bacteria normally present in the digestive tract. These friendly bacteria are vital to health and to the proper functioning of the intestinal tract. They are vital for proper digestion and also perform a number of useful functions, such as preventing overgrowth of yeast and other pathogens, and synthesizing vitamin K. Taking probiotics helps to return the intestinal flora to a healthier balance.
As humans we're surrounded by trillions of micro-organismâ€™s every day, some are good and some are harmful. The beneficial ones are â€œProbiotic micro-organisms,â€ which can improve the area around our intestinal tracts. Chances are, you may have considered several solutions to occasional digestive imbalance, including: changing your diet, exercising, stress reduction and relaxation.
A simple solution, such as a daily Probiotic supplement can help restore your natural balance and bring peace to your digestive system. The major benefits of adding probiotic organisms to your daily diet: Immune system boost, inhibits disease causing organisms, improved digestion, vitamin synthesis, detoxification and protection from toxins, prevents diarrhea from various causes, reduced risk of irritable bowel syndromes, cancer-protective effects, increased nutrient absorption, improves resistance to allergies, reduces yeast and other infections.
