Your metabolism refers to how food is broken down, releasing the energy your body needs to perform its daily functions. If you do not have the right balance of enzymes, your body can either break down foods too quickly or too slowly – both of which can result in unwanted symptoms. Experiencing real fatigue can be a sign that your body’s enzymes may not be sufficiently metabolizing the foods you digest.
The chemical reactions of metabolism are organized into metabolic pathways, in which one chemical is transformed through a series of steps into another chemical, with the help of a sequence of enzymes. Enzymes are crucial to metabolism because they allow organisms to drive desirable reactions that require energy and will not occur by themselves, by coupling them to spontaneous reactions which in turn release energy. As enzymes act as catalysts, they allow these reactions to proceed quickly, and efficiently. Enzymes also allow the regulation of metabolic pathways in response to changes in the cell’s environment or signals from other cells.
The role of Enzymes in Diets
Enzymes act as the ignition, which start the essential chemical reactions that our bodies depend on to survive. They are necessary for digesting food, for stimulating the brain, for providing cellular energy, and for repairing all tissues, organs, and cells. It is important to remember that some theorises that humans are given a limited supply of enzyme energy at birth. Thus, 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 and laboured metabolism.
Enzymes can be very effective in enhancing whatever diet one is following – even if it’s not a specific or special-needs diet. Enzymes improve digestion and overall digestive health, so whatever we eat, or whatever supplements we take, can be better absorbed and used by the body. Supplements, nor foods, are going to do any good simply passing through the body, from the point of view of nutrient absorption. Many diets come about because particular foods are not sufficiently digested, or cause digestion issues. Diets attempt to work around these issues by eliminating the problematic foods. However, a different and more effective strategy to consider, is taking enzymes so the digestive problem is solved at the source.
Supplements versus Foods
The idea, of course, of supplementing is that they are in addition to a good whole-food diet, never ever instead of one! If fact, enzymes we consume through food can ensure that the supplements we take are much more effective and more efficiently absorbed. This in turn works the other way around and the enzyme supplements we take will ensure that the food enzymes we eat are broken down and absorbed in the best way possible. In other terms – ‘You scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours!’
The End Result
Simply put, enzymes will make any diet more efficient and will ensure that maximum absorption is achieved. This helps to avoid unnecessary deficiencies, mal-nourishment caused by a strict regimen and the risk of abandoning of a diet before you’ve given it a proper chance. Taking digestive enzyme supplements, whether on a specific diet or simply following your every-day routine, will help you obtain as much as possible from what you’re consuming and act as building blocks for a stronger digestive and immune system over all.
