It seems that enzymes are the fountain of life. Enzymes serve as the labor force to perform every single function required for our daily activities and are required to keep us alive. Digestive enzymes are only a part of the total amount of enzymes in the body. There are about 3000 known enzymes. They are responsible for all the functions of every organ system in our bodies. At the same time they are most important in supporting our body defenses and immune system to protect us from harmful forces and specific dangers to our health. The immune system depends heavily on enzymes to conduct its protective function. In addition we require enzymes not only to eat, digest and absorb our nutrients, but also to see, hear, smell, taste, breathe and move. Enzymes are required for our blood and coagulation system, cardiovascular functions, kidneys, liver, elimination of toxic products, excretion, reproduction, etc. They are required even to think, dream or for sexual excitement. When enzyme activity stops, life stops and the person or organism dies!

There are two major enzyme systems in the human body. One is digestive and the other is metabolic. The digestive enzymes help break down all of the food that we eat so that it can be absorbed by the body. The metabolic enzymes help to run all of the systems of the body from respiratory system to the nervous system.

The seven categories of food (digestive) enzymes and their activities are:

* Amylase: breaks down starches.
* Cellulase: breaks down fibers.
*Lactase: breaks down dairy products.
* Lipase: breaks down fats.
*Maltase: breaks down grains.
* Protease: breaks down proteins.
*Sucrase: breaks down sugars

." Enzymes are at work in our bodies; - Just eat something.One enzyme is already at work in your mouth while you chew; Amylases break down starch into smaller sugars - dextrins and maltose. Typical starchy foods are potatoes, pasta and rice. When the food reaches your stomach, acidic gastric juices start to flow from special glands. An important component of these juices is the enzyme pepsin. This is a protein splitting enzyme and it works best in the conditions of high acidity found in the stomach. The partly digested food and gastric juices are then churned around in your stomach and propelled into the duodenum. It is here that another important part of digestion takes place. Pancreatic juice is released from the pancreas and this neutralizes the acid. An enzyme contained in the juice chops starch into its simplest sugars, and another breaks the protein down further into amino acids, which are one of the main building blocks of all living matter. So far, any fat has remained untouched, but now an enzyme made in the pancreas, a lipase, digests the fat. About seven hours after you have eaten your food, it passes from the duodenum into the small intestine where most of the nutrients liberated by the enzymes are absorbed and pass into your blood. The work of the enzymes is over. They have performed a small miracle. They have helped to transform food into tiny nutrients that the body can absorb and use to renew aging cells and to provide energy. Each day muscles burn up several hundred grams of carbohydrate and fat for energy. Without enzymes, our bodies would cease to function.
