Enzymes and Health

THE POWER OF ENZYMES
Part 2
Copyright © Ron Harder

This is the second part of "The Power Of Enzymes". 
This part will focus on the more important enzymes that your body must have in order for you to maintain your good health.

The following are the eight major digestive enzymes 
that you should have in your body to make sure that 
you maximize your digestion. The first four are 
absolutely essential for optimum health, and the last 
four are generally manufactured by your body on an as-required basis. However, all eight of these enzymes perform a very specific function that cannot be performed by a different enzyme, and so they are all very important.

PROTEASE
Responsible for digesting proteins in your food, which is probably one of the most difficult substances to metabolize. Because of this, protease is considered to be one of the most important enzymes that we have. If the digestive process is incomplete, undigested protein can wind up in your circulatory system, as well as in other parts of your body.

When you take protease in higher quantities, it can help to clean up your body by removing the unwanted protein from your circulatory system. This will help to clean up your blood stream, and restore your energy and balance.

One of the tricks of an invading organism is to wrap itself in a large protein shell that the body would view as being "normal". Large amounts of protease can help to remove this protein shell, and allow the body's defense mechanisms can go into action. With the protective barrier down, your immune system can step in and destroy the invading organism.

Additional amounts of protease are also helpful in fighting such things as colds, flu's, and cancerous tumor growths. Protease helps in the healing and recovery from cancer by dissolving the fibrin coating on cancer cells, and thereby giving your immune system a chance to do its job. It can effectively shrink these tumors by helping to remove the dead and abnormal tissues, and by stimulating healthy tissue growth.

AMYLASE 
The second most important enzyme that we have, amylase is responsible for digesting carbohydrates in food. Because of this, it could be considered a natural antihistamine. Incomplete 
digestion of carbohydrates has been linked to blood sugar imbalances, allergies, and asthma.

Amylase is also very effective in helping to relieve the symptoms of allergic reactions to such things as insect bites, pollen irritation, or contact with poison oak, poison ivy, or sumac. A possible reason why some people appear to be more immune to these poisons is because of a higher amount of amylase within their bodies.

LIPASE 
Responsible for digesting fats in food. When taken in higher quantities it will also find its way into the blood stream and help to remove excess fatty deposits from the inside of your veins and arteries. When this occurs, the arteries and veins are more open and allow the blood to flow more smoothly throughout your body.

It is well understood that clogged arteries cause a rise in blood pressure, and that this in turn leads to heart problems. Using extra lipase during the pre-digestive phase can help with overall fat control both in the stomach and in the arteries of your body.

Additional lipase can also be helpful in a weight management program, because it converts fat to energy instead of allowing it to be stored in your body.

CELLULASE 
Responsible for breaking down fiber. It is also an excellent antioxidant because it binds to heavy metals and other toxins and carries them out of your body.

We generally consume a combination of soluble and insoluble fiber. Soluble fiber is effective in binding to excess cholesterol and toxic material and removing them from the body. Cellulase helps with this process because it breaks down the soluble fiber and allows it to be more efficient.

Insoluble fiber provides the necessary bulk to keep the intestinal tract properly inflated, and acts as a "push broom" to keep the walls of both the small and large intestines clean.

MALTASE 
Responsible for taking the complex sugar found in malt and grain products and changing it into 
glucose.

LACTASE 
Responsible for digesting the milk sugar found in dairy products.

PHYTASE 
Helps with digestion in general, and is especially effective in producing vital nutrients of the B-Complex.

SUCRASE 
Responsible for digesting the sugars that are found in most foods.

You may not always get enough enzymes from the food that you eat, and because of that you may sometimes have problems with your digestion. To help you with that I have included a few suggestions that you may wish to consider.

a) Chew your food well. This will help to break down your food so that your enzymes can do their job more effectively.

b) Eat your meals slowly. This will allow your food to proceed along your digestive tract in an orderly and continuous fashion.

c) Take time to relax after you eat so that your body will have the energy to start the digestive process.

d) Eat smaller more frequent meals during the day to help your digestion, and to promote better metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates and fat.

e) Do not eat a heavy meal within three hours of bedtime.

f) Drink plenty of water or herbal tea with and between your meals to promote better digestion and system regularity.

g) Eat plenty of fresh raw fruits and vegetables to maximize your enzyme intake.

Do your very best to obtain all the enzymes that you can. The more enzymes you consume, the better your digestion will be, and the more value you will obtain from your food. And you do not have to worry about ever getting too many enzymes, they are not something that you can overdose on. Eat well, and be healthy.

TODAY'S FEATURE ARTICLE

 
Why do people experience incredible weight loss on a juice fast?

Before that question can be answered, we have to understand what ‘juice fasting’ is about.

Juice fasting is about abstaining from solid food, for a period of time, while supplying your body with the most nutritious drinks on this planet. By providing essential vitamins and minerals, the juice can actually jump-start the body’s fat-burning mechanisms. One glass of freshly-made fruit or vegetable juice provides you with the equivalent vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids and chlorophyll you would get by eating several pounds of raw fruits and vegetables.

Most of us have heard how thousands are losing up to 10 pounds in 2 days on the best-selling Hollywood 48-Hour Miracle Diet in which you simply juice fast on bottled (dead) juice for 2 days. Well, juice fasting is a healthier version of the Hollywood Diet because you can fast longer than 2 days while supplying your body with live enzymes and nutrient-rich fresh fruit and vegetable juices.

Dr. Shelton, a great advocate of fasting, wrote "The weight lost by overweight patients in the early days of a fast is astounding. I have seen losses of five and six pounds a day for the first few days. A woman who fasted in the Health School in January and February of 1950 lost twenty-five pounds in the first two weeks.
