The Importance of Digestive Enzymes

Enzymes are one of the few supplements on my "must have" list. Here's a great little article, written by David Favor of RadicalHealth.com and SunFire Superfoods, explaining why enzyme supplementation is so important. As always, make sure your supplements are free of non-nutrients and anti-nutrients, such as magnesium stearate and ascorbic acid, to name a few.

Advanced Enzyme Use

Our brains and eyes require only one fuel - Sugar. This is why alcoholism is
best approached by first focusing on enzymes and sugar metabolism. The reason
alcoholics stay in a "constantly recovering" state, where they simply manage
their cravings, usually relates to poor sugar metabolism.

Our brains and eyes require sugar. Massive quantities of sugar.

Constant use of alcohol and sugar simple relate to our brains staying alive in
the best way they know how. Increasing Enzymatic Fire can many times reverse
these trends/habits in a few days, even if they've been going on for years.

As people's enzyme reserves deplete from years of eating cooked and processed
food, their ability to convert food into massive, high quality sugar reduces,
atrophies and sometimes completely interrupts.

Refined sugar and alcohol require little processing and in down regulated
systems are required to sustain brain function. This is why long time alcoholics
and sugarholics loose their taste for both after a few weeks of using enzymes
and eating Super Foods.

It's interesting to note:

Diabetes, ADD, Hyperactivity, Hypo/Hyper-Glycemia, Depression, Alcoholism,
Sugarholism and many forms of Chronic Fatigue are all different faces or
stages of sugar metabolism imbalance. There may also be emotional or
psycho-spiritual components and best to balance sugar metabolism at a
physiological level first, then see if other refinements are required.

Here are the types of enzymes I'd experiment with:

1) Digestive: These ensure food is broken down quickly and sugar
metabolism operates at peak. This offloads the pancreas and
allows it to regenerate and rebuild enzyme reserves.

2) Protease: These are some of the enzymes the pancreas creates
when there is no requirement to produce digestive enzymes, as
when a person eats cooked/processed foods. Flooding the body
with food grade, high potency, Protease can many times reverse
the challenges created by years of producing low levels of
Protease internally.

3) Metabolic: These are produced internally. There are very few
sources of food based metabolic enzymes. The first focus here
are Super Foods like Cacao, Gojis and Camu to provide subtle
nutrients for optimal metabolic enzyme production.

Also Bee Pollen, as Bee Pollen contains 5,000+ enzymes.

Contrary to urban myth, Bee Pollen harvesting is a friendly
comfortable process for bees and all smart bee keepers harvest
Bee Pollen both to eat and refeed their bees when climate changes
occur which diminish bees' natural food sources.

The trick with Bee Pollen is it must be harvested, processed and
stored properly or it becomes a mass of fungus and like mushrooms
can create massive Candida overgrowth.

Be very careful of your Bee Pollen source.

Enjoy the best day ever biggrin
