Mechanism of action:

      Although different kinds of cells may conduct specialised metabolic processes, all cells perform certain basic reactions such as the anabolism and catabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. These reactions actually include hundreds of very specific chemical changes that must occur in an orderly fashion. They are controlled by mechanisms involving the presence of enzymes.1

      Enzymes are globular proteins that promote specific chemical reactions within cells by lowering the amount of energy (activation energy) needed to start these reactions. They achieve this by temporarily binding with the molecules upon which they act. This somehow strains or distorts the chemical structure of these molecules thereby increasing the likelihood of a chemical change. Thus, in the presence of enzymes, metabolic reactions are often sped up by a factor of a million or more. Commonly, enzyme names are derived from the substrate upon which they act, for example lipid-splitting enzymes are named lipases, protein-splitting enzymes are named proteases, starch(amylase)-splitting enzymes are named amylases.1

      Most food substances are composed of chemicals whose molecules cannot pass easily through membranes and consequently cannot be effectively absorbed by cells. The digestive system and it’s digestive enzymes solve this problem, it’s parts and functions are adapted to ingest foods, break larger particles into smaller ones, secrete enzymes that decompose the smaller particles for absorption, and to eliminate the unused residues.1

      To maintain health, the human body must obtain a variety of chemicals from it’s environment in adequate amounts. These chemicals which include carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins and minerals are called nutrients. They supply energy for cellular processes, play vital roles in metabolic reactions, and provide the building materials for growth, repair, and maintenance of tissues. Taken together the processes by which nutrients are ingested, digested, absorbed, assimilated, and utilised by the body are called nutrition.1

      Biochemists agree that enzymes are the key to body power and vitality, and that they will help our bodies work more efficiently but with less effort. Absolutely nothing takes place within the body that does not involve enzymes in some way or another. The way the heart beats, the brain thinks, the stomach digests food, your muscles move, are all affected by the specific behaviours of a number of different enzymes. They literally jumpstart your system into a variety of actions that keep you alive and moving about.2

      Traditionally speaking, enzymes should come from the foods we eat. But very few individuals live entirely on a raw, whole food diet; human preference is to eat cooked meals. Heat is a well-known enzyme "killer" and even if food was not cooked, we would still be getting a majority of food that is lacking in enzymes (preservation of food with chemical additives, irradiation, canning, freezing and drying reduce natural enzyme activity by an alarming rate).2

      Supplementation, with digestive enzymes, is the key to ensuring that the body receives an adequate supply of enzymes on a daily basis to guarantee intestinal health. Without adequate digestion the molecules that have not been ingested completely can be inappropriately absorbed into systemic circulation causing various diseases, the development of food allergies, malabsorption disorders and nutritional deficits.2
