Traditionally, the foods that you eat contain in them the enzymes that are necessary for their own digestion. The processed foods that most people sustain themselves on, however, are completely deficient of these crucial enzymes & this is the big problem. Enzymes act as the biochemical machinery that break down the proteins, fats & carbs that we ingest, and provide numerous other roles in controlling inflammation & other metabolic processes. While our bodies can make many of these enzymes endogenously, this can be strenuous for the body if we do not also get enzymes from our diet.
Fruits such as papaya & pineapple, leafy-green vegetables, apple cider vinegar & other raw foods are the best sources of these enzymes. It is important that these foods be eaten raw because enzymes are very sensitive to heat & can be easily destroyed by the cooking process.
