Enzymes are complex proteins produced by all living thing. Enzymes are substances that help carry out a number of the body’s function like transforming food and chemical elements into other needed substances. Enzymes help eliminating toxins in the colon, kidneys, liver, lungs and skin.
Enzymes can be obtained from fruits and vegetables. While all raw foods contain enzymes, the most powerful enzyme-rich food is sprouted seeds. Sprouting increases the enzyme content in the food enormously. Like all proteins, enzymes are very sensitive to high temperature or high levels of acids. Therefore, when vegetables are cooked or boiled, the enzymes can be destroyed and become non-functional.
As we age, it is more and more difficult for us to produce the enzymes we need. Lack of digestive enzymes can be a factor in food sensitivities. Symptoms of digestive enzymes depletion are bloating, bowel disorders, abdominal cramping and food sensitivities.
Juicing as a quick way to obtain enzymes & nutrient
The nutritional value and energy from raw Foods can be absorbed by human body very fast when it is fully micronized. Are your children reluctant vegetable consumers? Blending vegetable juice with fruit tends to make vegetables more palatable. Blending also helps to release the beneficial phytochemicals and enzyme locked inside the cells of fruit peels and seeds. This can only make possible when using a blender of high speed for a short period of time.
