Enzymes – you need them. Tons of them.

Enzymes are the spark plugs found in food.  Primarily raw food –  like a big salad full of raw veggies.

Enzymes are what make things work.   Your body goes through millions (zillions) of chemical reactions a day.  It’s the enzymes that make those reactions happen.

If you want your body to benefit from its intake of vitamins and minerals (from food and/or supplements) you need enzymes to facilitate this.

If you want all the hormones in your body to function as they are meant to, you need enzymes.

Enzymes are the spark or catalyst that make things happen.  Just as a car needs the spark of ignition in order to run.

Our food supply is loaded with enzymes – on purpose.  Because we need them in order to run.

But here’s the catch.  Enzymes are destroyed when cooked.  Heat is not a friend to the enzyme.

We are meant to eat lots of raw foods in the form of veggies, fruits, nuts, and seeds.

We are NOT meant to eat overly cooked, highly processed foods.  These foods are, in effect, dead.

Eating a diet rich in enzymes means having lots of energy, a strong immune system, great looking skin and healthy digestion.   Eating overly cooked, processed foods means just the opposite.

For me, salads loaded with lots of raw veggies is the easiest way to get plenty of enzymes.  So is a plate of raw veggies and some hummus.   Or a handful of raw nuts and seeds.

And juicing raw veggies and fruits makes for a powerful glass of vitamins, minerals and all the enzymes you need.

It’s crunch time.  Make it raw.
