What is an Enzyme?

Enzymes are proteins (long chains of amino acids that differ in order and number) made by living cells to promote specific metabolic reactions. Digestive Enzymes are enzymes that specifically work in the digestive system to help the digestion, absorption, energy production, metabolism, transportation of nutrients to cells, and elimination of toxins among many other functions.
There are more than 3,000 known enzymes in the human body. The body’s ability to function and repair itself is directly related to the strength and number of enzymes that are present. Every second, they are changing and renewing, sometimes at unbelievable rates. This is why an enzyme deficiency can be so devastating.
They also work to promote the efficient elimination of digestive waste products that are not of use to the body. Without enzymes, our cells would not get adequate nutrition and we would not survive
