In my previous post I named the supplements that I take every day.
This time I want to talk more detailed about enzymes. Why is it important to take enzymes every day? What do they do to your body?
Enzymes are very important to our health and beauty. Over the years, our enzyme reserve becomes diminished. Therefore, our body may not be digesting foods, even properly combined food, as well as it once did when we were children. We know that any amount of poorly digested food ferments and putrefied in the digestive tract, stimulating the growth of unfriendly bacteria and the creation of their toxic, acidic by-product and waste, which then become absorbed into the blood and deposited in tissues all around the body, especially soft-tissue areas, such as the joints. Toxins in the blood also negatively affect our skin and our physical appearance.
Digestive enzymes are therefore a critical aid to us. They can be taken daily and right before meals and should be ingested before any meal that contains cooked food. They give our bodies an extra boost of lipase, amylase and protease, to help efficiently digest fats, starches and proteins. We could all use the boost.
Here are some of their specific benefits:
1. Improve the absorption and assimilation of Beauty Minerals and nutrients;
2. Help to slow the aging process by preserving the body’s own enzymes;
3. Promote efficient digestion;
4. Free up Beauty Energy to rebuild and replace damaged cells, including the collagen of the skin;
5. Increase energy;
6. Enhance cleansing, which can improve acne and other imbalances;
7. Decrease bloating, gassiness and constipation.
When you choose a digestive enzyme supplements, be sure to look for one that is vegan and plant-based, rather than one that contains enzymes from bovine animals ( cows or oxen) or other animals or animal products. Plant enzymes may be more active at a fuller pH range than animal-based enzymes. Choose a supplement that contains a blend of lipase, amylase and protease, to help efficiently digest fats, starches and proteins. Cellulase is another category of digestive enzymes and can also be useful in a supplement, as it breaks down cellulose and chitin, a fiber similar to cellulose that is found in the cell wall of candida.
There are a lot of food contains enzymes too.
