What Are Enzymes?
Enzymes are substances, mainly proteins, that work to speed up chemical reactions in the body, such as digestion.
Enzymes Are Natural
All natural, raw foods contain enzymes. Thorough chewing releases enzymes in raw foods, allowing our bodies to digest and absorb nutrients, vitamins and minerals.
Most Diets Lack Enzymes
Cooking destroys enzymes. Processed foods have their enzymes and vitamins removed to extend shelf life. In processed foods the vitamins are replaced but the enzymes are not. When we eat foods that are devoid of enzymes it is a stress to the digestive system. Supplemental enzymes can reduce stress on the digestive system and enhance absorption of nutrients.
The Immune System Runs On Enzymes
The immune system is also a focus of Enzyme Nutrition. All functions of the immune system, including healing damaged tissues and fighting disease, are fueled by enzymes. Supplemental enzymes can improve the body’s ability to heal and stay in balance.
People Have Individual Needs
At Back to Life Chiropractic each patient is evaluated for their unique nutritional needs. We primarily use supplements that are made from whole food ingredients.
