Enzymes..Have You Lost Your Spark?



Did you know research has shown that our body’s ability to
produce enzymes decreases as we age? And, while this is taking
place, malabsorption of nutrients, the breakdown of tissue, and
chronic health conditions as a whole increase. Some folks
believe that enzyme supplementation is vital for elderly people.
Well, yikes! I’m not young, young, but I do have to admit I am
slowing down some. I feel sluggish a lot. So what exactly does
this mean? What’s all this talk about enzymes anyway? I read
that the late Dr. Edward Howell, a physician and pioneer in
enzyme research, called enzymes the “sparks of life”. Enzymes
assist us in most all bodily functions. Each enzyme has a
specific function and each one has a specialized chemical shape.
They can only initiate a reaction in a certain substance or
group of related substances. Basically the body must produce a
great number of different enzymes. Some of the different enzymes
would be: digestive enzymes which break down food particles for
storage in our muscles and liver, blood enzymes which allow iron
to concentrate in our blood and also blood enzymes to help the
blood coagulate to stop bleeding, uricolytic enzymes catalyze
the conversion of uric acid, respiratory enzymes facilitate the
elimination of carbon dioxide from the lungs, enzymes also
assist the kidneys, liver, lungs, colon, and skin in removing
wastes and toxins from the body. Enzymes also help with the
construction of new muscle tissue, nerve cells, bone, skin, and
gland tissue. Enzymes do all this and more! Enzymes are so
crucial to our health that I am awestruck. Scientists break
enzymes down into two groups: digestive enzymes and metabolic
enzymes. The digestive enzymes break down foods. There are three
categories of digestive enzymes. The Amylase break down
carbohydrates, and then different types of amylase break down
specific types of sugar. Protease helps to digest protein.
Lipase aids in fat digestion. The metabolic enzymes are the
enzymes that have to do with various chemical reactions with the
cells, such as energy production and detoxification. So if we
want more energy it appears more enzymes are the key. Well the
fact is that our body manufactures a supply of enzymes and we
also obtain enzymes from the food that we eat. The problem is
these enzymes are very sensitive to heat. Actually, they are
extremely sensitive to heat. A temperature of 118 degrees or
above destroys most enzymes in food. This would mean that in
order to prevent depleting our body of enzymes we would have to
eat raw foods or take enzyme supplements. So where can we find
enzymes if we eat raw foods? Enzymes are in foods from both
plant and animal sources. Some great sources would be avocados,
papayas, pineapples, bananas, and mangos. These are all high in
enzymes. Sprouts and blue-green algae are the richest source.
Unripe papaya and pineapple are also good sources of enzymes.
Now it all makes sense to me. Why am I so tired and sluggish all
the time? It has to do with the lack of enzymes. I want my
“spark” back! The great thing is, it isn’t impossible to do. As
a matter of fact it is relatively easy to do. And, considering
the importance of enzymes to our overall health, I decided to
get my “spark“ back! I now have a goal, and that is to help
others find their spark. My hope is for each and everyone to be
able to make their life work better.The best place to start is
with your health. If you find a health solution that works for
you then trust me, everything else will fall into place.
