Enzymes.

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.

This months I got:

IMG_8647

1.CocoaVia. Heart Healthy Mix.

This mix supports cardio-vascular health with the natural taste of rich chocolate packed with cocoa flavarons. You suppose to mix it into your milk, oatmeal, yogurt or protein shake.

I saw it at the store before, but didn’t want to buy the whole package, so I was happy to try it from the Bulu Box. It tastes pretty good, and I might have it sometimes in my protein shake.

The ingredients though didn’t make me happy: soy lecithin, carrageenan, sucralose etc. NATURALLY FLAVORED on the package flashes the RED LIGHT for me. This ingredient always hides tons of chemicals in it:(

2. Shapeology Burn Blend.

I got it this month again. I already said what I think about supplements like this.

Never tried it.

3. PowerBar Performance Energy Blend.

Fuel your body before, during and after exercise with natural ingredients like bananas and blueberries. Energy Blends make the perfect on-the-go boost for the endurance athlete in you.

Sounds good, and tastes good, but it’s easier for me just eat the real fruits. If I don’t have anyhing to snack on, and can’t get any fresh fruit, I would probably go with it. But you can also buy just baby puree food and have it as a snack.

4. Twin Lab Power Fuel.

Power Fuel intensifies your muscle pump to boost performance and ignite strenght gains. It utilizes four types of carbohydrates, absorbed sequentially, to put your muscles into overdrive and keep them there rather than spiking and crashing.

It’s a good supplement for heavy-weight lifters. I can use it from time to time, but in general, I feel totally ok during exercising without it.

5. Garden of Life RAW Organic Protein Powder.

Packed with protein, vitamins and live probiotics, Garden of Life Raw Protein is a great meal replacement or post workout drink. Raw Protein is vegan, gluten, dairy, soy free and still tastes delicious.

I love Garden of Life. I had their protein powder(chocolate) before, and it tastes good. This time I got Vanilla Spiced Chai and it tastes delicious. This sample was good.

6. Online Training. Daily Burn.

Get your sweat on and burn fat anywhere with access to an enormous library of workouts spanning all areas of fitness at DailyBurn.com.

I got the gift card to use on this site, to upload different workouts and exercises and use them for 1 months for free, and 20$ store credit to spend on nutritional supplements .

I always look for new workouts and exercises to try, so this gift card is used already:)

In general I like my first box more than the second one, but I still found some nice samples in August box to use. I will definetely share my experience with the next month BULUBOX.
