Helps Digest Fats and Sugars in the Diet
Enzymes are the sparks that cause or speed up the essential chemical reactions our bodies need to live. The human body produces millions of enzymes every second. Enzymes are necessary for providing cellular energy, for repairing all tissues, organs and cells, for stimulating the brain and for digesting foods. This includes the absorption, transportation and metabolism of nutrients as well as the elimination of waste.
Three classes of Enzymes
Three classes of enzymes are metabolic enzymes, digestive enzymes and food enzymes.
Metabolic enzyme catalyze, or spark the reactions within the cells. The body's organs, tissues and cells are run by metabolic enzymes. Without them our bodies would not work. Among their chores are helping to turn phosphorus into bone, attaching iron to our red blood cells, healing wounds and seeing that our hearts beat.
Digestive enzymes are secreted by the pancreas and break down foods, allowing their nutrients to be absorbed into the bloodstream and used in body functions. They ensure that we get the greatest possible nutritional value from our foods. Digestive enzymes include protease, which digests protein; amylase, which digests carbohydrates; lipase, which digests fats and oils; and maltase, which digests malt sugars and grains.
Food enzymes are enzymes supplied to us through the foods we eat. They include digestive enzymes, but also enzymes unique to the particular foods. Food enzymes help us "predigest" foods; that is start breaking down foods before our bodies; enzymes begin to do so.
The importance of enzymes
Enzyme theory is based on the pioneering work of Dr. Edward Howell in the 1920s. He wrote two books on the subject and theorized that humans are given a limited supply of enzyme energy at birth and that it is up to us to replenish our supply of enzymes to ensure that their vital jobs get done. If we don't replenish our supply, we run the risk of ill health. Current research shows that as we age, we produce a reduced number of enzymes.
Enzyme theory became more popular as the Western diet became more dependent on processed and cooked foods. Enzymes are extremely sensitive to heat; food enzymes are destroyed at temperatures above 118F. Pasteurizing, canning and microwaving all destroy enzymes. This means that cooked and processed foods contain few, if any enzymes and that the typical diet found in industrialized countries is enzyme-deficient.
Nutritional studies have shown that a regular diet of cooked and canned foods causes the development of chronic degenerative diseases. This points back to the importance of eating raw fruits and vegetables. Only few foods have functional "live" enzymes and the more raw foods you eat, the more live enzymes you get.
The benefits of enzymes
The benefits of providing the body with more enzymes are many. As noted, getting more enzymes aids the body's own enzyme supply, which may lead to a healthier life.
Most widely known is that digestive enzymes help us digest foods more completely. This means that we utilise more nutrients (which might mean that we eat less and maintain a stable weight) and experience better health.
There is another advantage to being sure that foods are well-digested. When foods are not well-digested, they remain in the stomach and can rot and putrefy. This results in a buildup of waste in the colon. This fecal matter begins to decay, producing bacteria and toxins. The toxins eventually seep through the bowel wall, where blood capillaries pick them up and distribute them throughout the body. This can result in health problems. These problems include constipation, stomach bloat, poor digestion, gas, fatigue, weight gain and weight loss, headaches and more. Using digestive enzymes ensures that your foods are more completely digested, helping to eliminate potential problems due to toxins.
AIM PrepZymes ®
AIM PrepZymes® combines cultured enzymes with papaya fruit and alpine wild garlic for the best possible digestive product: one that provides you with important enzymes to help you digest the foods you eat as well as the materials to fight metabolic damage.
Papaya fruit and alpine wild garlic
The papaya fruit found in AIM PrepZymes® contains papain. Papain is an enzyme that sticks to proteins, aids in protein digestion and has a soothing effect on the stomach. Alpine wild garlic aids in digestion and also contributes antioxidant activity to the formula.
Cultured enzymes are valuable because they have a wide work environment; that is they are active in both acidic and alkaline environments. The enzymes are cultivated, strained off and purified so that no fungi, bacteria or yeast remain in the product.
The unique combination of enzymes in AIM PrepZymes® has been specially formulated to
