BodyZyme Systemic Enzyme 90 Capsules, 90 caps
BodyZyme is a potent systemic enzyme. What are Enzymes? Enzymes are protein based sustances found in every cell of every plant and animal. Millions of these timy enzymes work throughout our bodies causing reactions to take place... aiding our breathing, circulation, digestion... helping to reduce inflammation, fight disease, look good, and live longer. Enzymes are catalysts, they either start or accelerate chemical reactions. They can be found in the food we eat, especially in fresh fruits, vegetables, and grains.Product Research
If I have them naturally and eat them with my food, why should I take enzyme supplements?
As we age, the activity level and quantity of our enzymes decreases. Even if we all ate the USDA recommended 3-5 servings of vegetables and 2-3 servings of fruit daily (only 10% of Americans actually do), the fruit and vegetables that most of us have access to have been in storage for at least a day or two. The enzymatic level of food is reduced by storage, as well as pesticides and other toxins in our food, water, and air.
What symptoms can be associated with enzyme deficiency?
According to Dr Anthony J Cichoke, fatigue, heartburn, indegestion, allergies, gas, and weight problems can all be symptoms of a lack of enzymes (usually as a result of an unhealthy lifestyle). Dr Chicoke tells us that "Supplemental enzymes can aid digestion, dissolve blood clots, fight back paindecrease swelling, speed up healing, fight wrinkles, clean surfaces of dirty wounds, help in delicate surgery, ease hindered breathingstimulate the immune system... Enzymes are being added to toothpaste for more cleaning power and to skin and nail products to make you look better..."
How can I make sure to have plenty of enzymes in my body?
Eat plenty of fresh, organically grown, enzyme rich foods (pineapple and papaya are 2 examples of particularly enzyme rich foods). Even with a perfect diet, however, you may have a problem digesting or absorbing the nutrients in your food. And even with perfect digestion, you may have a cholesterol buildup or immune system deficiency. In any of these cases, supplemental enzymes can be extremely beneficial.
What are enzymes?
Enzymes are protein based molecules that start or enhance the chemical reactions of all living organisms. Our bodies alone have over 3000 different knd of enzymes, each with a specific and unique function. All of our metabolic functions depend on enzyme availability. They allow us to function properly and slow down the aging process.
There are six categories of enzymes, depending on what they act upon and the reaction they effect.
Hydrolases (protease, amylase and lipase): Brake down proteins, carbohydrates and fats respectively.
Isomerasses: Break down chemical groups within the same molecule.
Ligases: Enable the formation of bonds between two substrate molecules.
Lyases: Split double bonds between atoms.
Oxidoreductases: Make oxidation and reduction possible.
Transferases: Transfer chemical groups between molecules.
Our bodies ability to function is directly dependent on the strength and number of enzymes available.
Enzymes lose strength and die off as their life span expires. Some enzymes have a life-span of around twenty minutes, while others for several weeks.
How are these enzymes replaced?
Some of the enzymes are produced by our own bodies. Other enzymes are ingested when we eat fresh unprocessed, unheated, untainted foods, most of which are unavailable in our modern diet (in the quantities we require). Also, this production decreases by illness, injury, stress and aging. In addition, some substances we ingest or come into contact with, can act as enzyme depleters: Alcohol, coffee, unsoaked beans and nuts, dried (dehydrated) foods, canned foods, milled foods, refined foods, frozen foods radiated foods tobacco, many of the drugs we use, food preservatives, colorants, flavorings and flavor enhancers, pesticides, organic solvents often found in household products (i.e. methanol, ethanol, propenol, formic acid, ethylene glycol, hexane, benzene and butanol).
Living in this day and age, enzyme insufficiency has become the rule, rather than the exception, with no real solution in sight. Our dependence on quickly processed foods, contaminants and exposure to enzyme inhibitors, as well as increased stress levels are most likely to only become more common, resulting in even more acute enzyme deficiencies. Now you may ask: Why isn't this condition more publicized? Why isn’t there more awareness? Most of the time, our illness, or absence of health, is attributed not so much to the causal factor, as it is to a symptomatic condition. Heart attacks are attributed to blood vessels clogged by cholesterol, rather than to the hardening of the vessels and decreased flexibility that enzymatic deficiency can bring about. Digestive distress is blamed on acidity, constipation, etc. not to our inability to break down and absorb our foods with proper enzymatic assistance. We are not recommending that you not seek medical help when an acute or life threatening condition is present. What we are saying is that by maintaining proper enzymes levels, you may avoid or postpone many of the chronic degenerative diseases by maintaining optimal enzyme levels.
How do I know if I am enzyme deficient?
As our enzymatic levels gradually decrease over time, most of us do not notice (until we supplement our bodies enzymes and notice the difference). However, one of the most obvious signs of enzyme deficiency is indigestion (including an upset stomach, gas, and a bloated feeling after eating certain foods). Many of the foods containing complex sugars will sit in the large intestine and putrefy when they cannot be broken down. This is easily rectified by taking enzyme supplements (ie BodyZyme). Premature aging and Illness are two other indicators of enzyme deficiency. Premature aging can be slowed by antioxidant enzymes, which fight the free radicals that destroy our bodies (environmental free radicals and pollutants cause our bodies to 'rust' and age). And according to Dr Anthony Cichoke, "Any illness or disease process, such as cardiovascular disease, degenerative diseases, cancer, or even a slow recovery rate after an injury are all indications that your body's enzymes are not working properly."
