ENZYMES – INSPIRATION FOR THE BODY
Have you ever wondered what stands behind the Eskimos’ excellent health? The fact is that generations of Greenland Eskimos had never suffered from a number of known modern society diseases such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, cardiovascular disease, cancer, kidney stones, etc., before they started eating cooked food. Their name derives from the word “eskimasen” that the Indians used to call their northern neighbours, and means “people who eat raw meat”.” Generations of Greenland Eskimos ate raw meat and fish exclusively. Their health deteriorated after changing their eating habits – a number of diseases appeared, and their life expectancy got greatly reduced.
Most diseases are rooted in the food we eat and in poor digestion. Cooking our food further destroys the enzymes contained therein. The production of enzymes by the body decreases with age, also as a result of trauma, stress, etc.
At any given moment, millions of enzymes are at work in our bodies, supporting our vital functions, rejuvenating and protecting us from infections. Essentially, these are proteins which have the function to catalyze chemical reactions in the human body, sometimes accelerating them over 1000 times. Enzymes increase the number of natural killer cells by 1300% and the number of macrophages by 700%; they also stimulate the proliferation of adult stem cells. They facilitate the biochemical metabolic reactions in the body and help detoxify the body. There are thousands of enzymes and each of them has a very specific function associated with the digestion and absorption of food, with energy supply, cells repair, tissues and organs. A disruption in the functioning of even one of the 2000-3000 enzymes in the body can cause diseases.
The enzymes are divided into two main groups, metabolic or digestive.
Metabolic enzymes give us energy, accelerate the progress of chemical reactions and the body’s ability to clear toxins. They are present in every living cell and it is thanks to them that we can breathe, see, hear, think …
Digestive enzymes work for the full absorption of various substances we take with food. The most important digestive enzymes are:
- Amylase, which breaks down starch.
- Lipase, which helps the body break down fat.
- Protease, which hydrolyzes proteins in acidic environment.
- Alpha-galactosidase, which helps break down complex carbohydrates.
- Lactase, which helps break down lactose in milk.
- Cellulase which breaks down cellulose.
- Bromelain, which helps overall digestion and absorption of nutrients. It suppresses inflammation, reduces swelling and has a cleansing effect.
The special feature of enzymes is that some of them are produced by the body, while others can be procured from certain raw foods only, such as fresh fruit and vegetables, soaked and sprouted nuts and seeds, fermented foods, honey, raw milk, etc. The capacity of the human body to produce enzymes is limited and it is determined by its needs. In our diet of cooked foods, fats, dairy products and starch, the body begins to produce too many digestive enzymes. That means that only a limited capacity remains in the body for the production of metabolic enzymes; therefore our health deteriorates and our vitality is reduced. So, it is very important to supplement our daily diet with digestive enzymes.
THE GOLDEN APPLE’s tested recipe
THE GOLDEN APPLE created EnzSpiru, a synergetic formula of 13 digestive enzymes of plant origin and the minerals and vitamins of the world’s highest quality spirulina. EnzSpiru is a powerful coenzyme product that contains many important enzymes necessary for the complete absorption and digestion of food. The thirteen enzymes, Amilase, Protease, Invertase, Lipase, Protease 6.0, Glucoamylase, Lactase, Bromelain, Phytase, Papain, Hemicellulase, Cellulase and Alphagalactosidase, enable the body to absorb otherwise inaccessible nutrients in fruits and vegetables, pulses, meat and milk. EnzSpiru is unique because it gives your body not only a powerful formula of 13 digestive enzymes but also over 6,000 metabolic enzymes contained in spirulina, and SOD (superoxide dismutase) – a unique antioxidant enzyme. The spirulina in EnzSpiru will give your body all the vitamins, minerals, amino acids, saturated fatty acids and many pigments. Spirulina gives energy to the body, puts the immune system in balance, has a positive effect on the joints, and stimulates stem cells.
