Enzymes for Digestive Health

Enzymes for Digestive Health

Digestive health is of such importance to me. I have posted about  AIM Herbal Fiberblend for cleansing, detoxification and toning your digestive system and about AIM Flora Food for replenishing the beneficial bacteria that help to devour pesky parasites such as yeast and harmful bacteria. Now I want to talk about the importance of digestive enzymes.

Enzymes help almost every bodily function.  The late Edward Howell, a doctor and enzyme research pioneer, called enzymes the “spark of life”.

There are three types of enzymes: metabolic enzymes, food enzymes and digestive enzymes.

Metabolic enzymes spark reactions inside the cell to run the body organs, tissues and cells. Without these enzymes the body will not work.  Metabolic enzymes turn phosphorus into bone; attach iron to our red blood cells; heal wounds and make sure that our heart beats.

Food enzymes are in the food that we eat.  These enzymes include digestive enzymes and specific enzymes that will help break down the food in which they are found.  These enzymes help to start the process of breaking down the food before our digestion can do the rest. The cooking process will destroy these beneficial enzymes.  This is one reason why we need to eat more raw fruits and vegetables when possible.  The popular documentary “Food Matters” recommends that we eat 51% raw foods daily.

Digestive enzymes are secreted along the digestive tract to break down foods making the nutrients from that food more easily absorbed and used by the body.  The Pancreas is of major importance since it secretes digestive enzymes at a critical point in digestion.  I like to think about my pancreas when I eat. Am I making it work overtime?  Have I eating some raw food today?  Am I chewing slowly and long enough to develop adequate digestive juices and mash up the food as small as possible?  Don’t make your pancreas work overtime.  Give some help.

Digestive enzymes include:

  • Protease for protein digestion
  • Amylase for carbohydrate digestion
  • Lipase for fats and oils digestion
  • Cellulase for dietary fiber digestion
  • Lactase for dairy products digestion
  • Sucrase for white sugar digestion and compliments amylase
  • Maltase for malt sugar and grain digestion

When food is not properly digested it will remain in the stomach where it will rot and putrefy.  The results in a build up of waste in the colon. The decaying fecal matter produces bacteria and toxins which can seep into the bowel wall to be picked up by the blood and distributed throughout the entire body.  Can you see how poor digestion can lead to health problems?

Using digestive enzymes helps your body digest food. This also helps to prevent issues such as constipation, bloat, gas, fatigue, weight-gain, headaches and more.

AIM Prepzymes contain cultured enzymes which work will in a pH environment that ranges from 2.0-12.0 pH. They are active in both acidic and alklane environments making them ideal for predigestion.

Prepzymes also contains papaya and wild garlic. Papaya leaf contains papain and enzyme similar to pepsin which helps break down protein especially for those who may not have enough hydrochloric acid which normally activates pepsin in the stomach.  Alpin wild garlic aids in digestion and contributes antioxidant activity and yeast fighting abilities.

The unique product from AIM helps to replace the naturally occurring enzymes lost during food processing, food preparation and cooking. We also need to recognize that enzymes are destroyed when food is irradiated.  Many foods are grown in such poor soils that they do not even develop the proper enzymes needed or they are harvested far too early before proper ripening can occur.

In today’s industrialized countries foods are filled with all types of additives, hydrogenated fats, hydrolyzed proteins, starches, high fructose corn syrup, food colorings etc.  Snack foods and processed foods are normal menu’s for many people today.  The need for digestive enzymes could not be greater.

Try this test when you get your bottle of AIM Prepzymes. This is a great science experiment for the kids too.

Prepare a bowl of oatmeal, and let it sit overnight.  The next day mix into the bowl of oatmeal the contents of one capsule of PrepZymes.  Within 15 minutes, you will notice that the oatmeal becomes more liquid. Within one hour, you will practically be able to drink it. Tis is the action of the enzymes breaking down the oatmeal. This is what PrepZymes can do for the food that you eat.
