Enzymes are active proteins found in all living cells. They perform an incredibly important role in our bodies by speeding up the chemical reactions that keep us alive, so without them, we couldn’t survive.

Enzymes are essential for our metabolism, respiration, digestion, energy production, nerve and muscle function, as well as our body’s ability to maintain and repair itself.

We naturally produce enzymes ourselves, but their production reduces as we age. To boost our enzyme potential, we can provide our bodies with digestive enzymes by eating raw, sprouted and fermented food; and we can take supplemental enzymes.
