Why is enzyme supplementation important?

As much as we try to get all the enzymes we need without supplementation, there are a lot of things working against us:

  • The process of cooking our food destroys its enzymes, and the processing that gas ripened and irradiated food goes through destroys their enzymes, too.
  • As we age, our body’s natural ability to make enzymes decreases.
  • Nuts that are raw contain an enzyme inhibitor (as do most beans).
  • Many grains and flour are processed, robbing them of their enzymes.
    In a world with so many factors keeping us from getting the enzymes we need, enzyme supplements provide support for more complete digestion and nutrient absorption.
