Enzymes

Enzymes are proteins and are essential to life. Actually enzymes are necessary for life since it is an enzyme that allows the sperm to enter the ovum. The human immune system depends upon the proper amount of enzymes to function properly. With the beginning of modern medicine over 200 years ago, the influence of enzymes on the metabolic processes was finally discovered. Enzymes reduce the energy required for chemical reactions. They regulate and even make a directed transformation of substances possible (metabolism) which would not occur at all or could only proceed very slowly in the organism under physiological conditions.

From the approximately 12,000 enzymes which regulate life's processes, only about 3,000 are known today . Significantly, every individual is born with a fixed number of enzymes in their system. Dr. Edward Howell referred to this as the ""enzyme bank"". The body requires outside and frequent deposits to the enzyme account in the form of fresh foods. Unfortunately, the more processed our foods become and the more carbonated drinks, caffeine, hormones, antibiotics, etc., we ingest the more strain it puts upon the enzyme bank account.

Since enzymes are destroyed at temperatures over 118° it is easy to see that our modern food processing techniques effectively eliminates the very things our body's require to exist. Further, so called fresh vegetables and fruits (which are often picked green for transportation and storage purposes) lack the required enzymes for proper metabolism.

Unless one grows their own food it is highly unlikely that the proper amount of enzymes are being ingested to contribute to a healthy physiological environment.

This partially accounts for the increase in adult onset diabetes as most individuals over the age of 30 or 35 have so depleted their account that the pancreas is called upon to do work for which it was never intended. In fact, the average American's pancreas is often 2-3 times normal size by age 40.

Can We Observe This Activity?

With the microscopic observation of the living blood (Vital Hematology), degradation or improvement in the blood flow (blood rheology, hematoma degradation, atherosclerosis), can be seen). An improvement in the blood flow and oxygen supply to the tissues, and improvement in the degradation of fibrinogen and fibrin, as well as that of other globular serum proteins (alpha2-macroglobulin), can be made through the daily use of enzymes. An improvement in the deformability (cell wall deficient forms and free radical damage) of the erythrocytes can be reversed by ingesting several important enzymes prior to meals.

Enzymes accelerate the fibrinolysis and reduces the thrombocyte aggregation (an observable precursor to stroke and heart attack), inhibits the over-expression of adhesion molecules, reduces the concentration of plasma lipids, reduces the risk of thrombembolic complications, inhibits metastasis and increases the immunogeneity of tumor cells, exposes the antigenic structures of the tumor cells (demasking), reduces the fibrin-dependent cancer cell stickiness, inhibits the adhesion molecules and improves the response to hormone therapy.

In a word, adding enzymes to one's diet can effectively improve digestion, immune function and, in a very essential way, help slow the aging process. That is why we always recommend a protocol which includes enzymes in the supplemental program for anti-aging.
