Did you know that you could be eating the correct nutrients, but not absorbing them?
In order to build muscle, strengthen your immune system, and get the energy you need throughout the day, the nutrients you eat have to be absorbed in your digestive tract. And that requires enzymes.
There’s the rub. Because there’s something in our modern diet that may be stopping you from producing the enzymes you need.
A high-glucose diet was found to shut down the gene that creates enzymes in the body. Food wouldn’t move through the digestive tract, and it couldn’t be absorbed.
Enzymes turn your food into vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients so your body can absorb your food.
Without enzymes, you can’t take in the nutrients you need to feed your cells. Your cells can’t make the energy they need to stay healthy. When your cells run out of energy, your body breaks down, and you develop disease.
Protease, amylase, and lipase are food enzymes that digest proteins, carbohydrates, and fats:
Protease digests proteins.
But parasites, fungus, bacteria, and viruses are protein. Without protease, you have nothing to eat away at them. You lose your defence against intestinal bugs, candida, infections, or viruses.
Amylase digests carbohydrates.
But amylase also digests things such as pus, which is dead white blood cells. Without amylase, you can develop pus-filled infections such as abscesses or other skin conditions. Or, you could develop a lung condition.
Lipase digests fats.
Lipase digests fat and oils. If you don’t have enough lipase to digest fat-soluble nutrients, you can develop high cholesterol, diabetes, and heart disease.
