As a holistic health coach, I am always searching for common questions and concerns. Recently, people want to know What exactly are enzymes? What are enzymes made of? And, How do enzymes work? When I hear "What exactly are enzymes?" I immediately think of raw foods like fruits, vegetables, and fish. From my knowledge, enzymes are made of proteins and amino acids and work to help the organs in our bodies break down food. This breakdown process is what gives us energy and how much energy, which is essential to our livelihood. Live Science says," Enzymes are biological molecules (typically proteins) that significantly speed up the rate of virtually all of the chemical reactions that take place within cells." Let's see what other facts are out there.
By googles' definition from the Oxford Dictionary, enzymes are a substance produced by a living organism that acts as a catalyst to bring about a specific reaction. Is it starting to make sense? The space in which this energy is occurring is the enzyme! Enzymes are the catalyst to life! They help carry food-energy and provide space for it to transform within our cells. In raw, living, organic foods, the transformation of this energy is occurring. Therefore, we can note, cooked and processed food is dead. It does not contain living transformational enzymes or sufficient energy carriers. Now that we understand What exactly are enzymes? And, that they are in raw foods. We want to know, What are enzymes made of?
Enzymes are made of proteins and amino acids that come from all living organisms. Search engines say, "Enzymes form by compounding approximately 100 and 1,000 amino acids in a specific order creating a unique shape." https://science.howstuffworks.com/life/cellular-microscopic/cell2.htm This unique shape of proteins and amino acids is the enzyme/energy carrier we were discussing in the previous paragraph. Now it's time to pull this all together to perceive How do enzymes work?
Enzymes work by providing space for raw, living, organic food material to attach, break down, and process, creating energy within our cells. Scientifically speaking, enzymes are proteins that attach to reactants called sub straights. Once the enzyme and sub straight link together it reacts as one molecule. Energy transformation occurs. Then the sub straight returns to its original state. Say there are approximately 25,000 reactions per cell every second. With 40 trillion cells in the body, we need 50%-70% raw food in our diet to obtain a minimal amount of enzymes. I know I don't eat that way. But, without enzymes, our body cannot and does not function correctly. If food is already processed and broken down, it affects our energy levels significantly.
Are you wondering, What are the symptoms of enzyme deficiency? How do I know if I need enzymes? Here are some common signs: being weak, tired, fatigued, often having an upset stomach, gas, bloating, intestinal issues, inflammation, chronic vomiting, or diarrhea. Sound like you? Don't worry you're not alone. The majority of us are not eating enough enzymes in our diet. As we learned, enzymes are the carriers to reacters that attach and process, creating energy through each organ of our body. We can see the norm in our modern food society; additives, preservatives, cooking, microwaving, and processing, eliminating all the enzymes, or all of the life out of our everyday food.
Over time, lack of enzymes leads to mal-absorption, loss of nutrients, and increased sensitivity to diseases. If we can consume 50%-60% delicious raw foods in our diet, we are most likely on the safe side in terms of good health. If that seems impossible for you, natural supplements are a great go-to.
