COMPLETE DIGESTIVE ENZYME
Digestion is the process by which the body breaks down food, extracting energy and nutrients from carbohydrates, protein and fats and discarding unusable components. This break down process involves a coordinated set of events, combining mechanical breakdown through mastication (properly chewing your food), chemical responses and enzymes.
Enzymes are protein molecules in plants, animals, and people that make life processes happen by initiating biochemical reactions that take place in the body.
Digestion is a critically important role of enzymes in the body. This is where the breakdown of food starts that will provide useable nutrients that the body requires to stay healthy and alive. When processed, packaged, overcooked, and canned foods compose the greater part of our diet (the Standard American Diet), the body becomes depleted of living enzymes, which naturally occur in whole foods.
Without adequate enzymes the body cannot break down and assimilate food molecules effectively. Without the life giving qualities of these naturally occurring enzymes, the food is effectively dead. When we lack digestive enzymes unhealthy strain is put on the pancreas to secrete greater amounts of pancreatic enzymes than normal. The result is an exhausted pancreas. Enzymes supplements taken with your meals will aid the digestive process, helping your body utilize the nutrients for needed fuel.
Incomplete digestion will occur if the digestive tract cannot supply all of the enzymes necessary to break down protein, fat, and carbohydrates. When this happens it is possible for partially digested food particles to pass through the intestinal lining and into the blood stream. The body’s immune system then recognizes these undigested particles as foreign invaders and attacks. This causes an allergic response. When the body is burdened with an accumulation of food that it cannot efficiently digest and assimilate, food allergies and intolerances, indigestion, gas, bloating, heartburn, constipation, and diarrhea can result.
If food is properly digested, it is broken down into substances that the body recognizes and is used accordingly.
Proper enzyme status and function is essential, especially as we age and we become more susceptible to impaired digestive function. However, it is necessary to regularly supplement with enzymes to eliminate various related digestive challenges at any age.

Obtaining the needed minerals via the food we eat is a chronic problem today. This is primarily due to our deficient soils and over processing and over cooking of our foods. Drinking ultra-purified water can also strip our body of these essential minerals. It is important to be aware of the fact that reverse osmosis and distilled water will actually act in reverse of what nature intended our water to do. Instead of being a mineral delivery system, the minerals are taken out of the water and this puts additional stress on the body tissue to compensate for the lack of minerals in the water. The minerals must then be taken from our healthy reserves in bone and muscle, thus leaving our system deficient and vulnerable. Replacement is essential!
