Enzymes

"You are what you eat," has never been a more important statement, given the latest science in digestive health. Decades of research has confirmed the role the gut plays in your health. A healthy gut can boost your mood, energize your metabolism, and support a vigorous immune system, among other things. On the other hand, an unhealthy gut may do the opposite.[1] And yet it all comes down to this: you need an ample supply of digestive enzymes to break down food into nutrients the body can use.

Whether breaking down foods or healing from injury, nearly every process in the human body involves chemical reactions. Enzymes are proteins that act as the catalysts for chemical reactions. Every cell in the body uses enzymes for building, maintenance, and repair. Enzymes are available in food, and the human body produces many enzymes on its own. However, your body's natural production of enzymes begins to decline as early as age 25. Joint pain, circulatory concerns, slower healing, and an increase in the incidence of disease are all too common with […]

Did you know that no animal can digest plant fiber? A large portion of a plant is fibrous, tough cellulose, which makes up its cell walls. The cell walls of fungi, including Candida, is also made of cellulose. For humans or other animals to digest plant cellulose, we need the enzyme cellulase.[1] (more…)

Glutamine is an amino acid that is vitally important to health and well-being. As the most abundant amino acid in the body, it supports more metabolic processes than any other.[1, 2] Glutamine encourages a healthy gut, promotes normal blood sugar levels, and is a building block for muscles.[3, 4] In the body, glutamine is stored in skeletal muscle; it circulates in the blood to the kidneys, liver, intestines, and immune cells where it helps perform critical functions.[5] (more…)
