Give Me Enzymes or Give Me Death!

Let’s talk a little about enzymes. First, what are enzymes? These amazing complex molecules are catalysts; in other words, they make chemical reactions happen, or happen much faster than they otherwise would. As such, they are an extremely important part of your body physiology. Active in every cell of the body, thousands of unique enzymes together constitute the stuff that makes things happen, different enzymes being found in different cells, depending on the function of that cell. Life as we know it could not exist without the constant activity of our enzymes.
For our purposes here, we are interested in digestive enzymes, those that help us digest the various things we take into our bodies. Our bodies create enzymes that help us digest proteins, others that work on carbohydrates, and others that are specific for fats. They are created in the stomach, the small intestine, the liver and the pancreas – even in the mouth. Proper digestion would simply not be possible without the enzymes found in our digestive tract and thus we would derive no nutrition from our food.
Unfortunately, due to various factors such as age or illness, for example, our bodies sometimes fail to produce enough enzymes to do the job of digesting everything we eat. Foods acquired in nature come with their own enzymes that help with their digestion, but the highly unnatural foods that we commonly pick up at the supermarket usually have been grown with chemical fertilizers and pesticides, subjected to heat in processing, modified beyond all recognition, and pasteurized or sterilized. As a result, they have lost their natural enzymes, making the job of digestion more difficult or even impossible for our bodies. As a result, we end up with sludgy, slow, sick bowels, organs that cannot carry out their proper functions, and poor nutrition. Other signs of digestive enzyme deficiency include fatigue, heartburn, gas, constipation, yeast infections and eczema, to name just a few.
We may also take in substances that the body was not designed to digest, for which it does not naturally make useful enzymes, including genetically-modified (GMO) foods, and food additives. These things, not found in nature, add to the burden on our organs. In addition, the body’s enzymes can be rendered ineffective by other molecules called inhibitors. These may enter our body by way of drugs, heavy metals and environmental toxins. Besides interfering with enzymatic activity, they are indigestible and difficult to eliminate from the body. Thus cleansing is critical, and enzymes are essential.
Here is where Young Living enzyme products come in, assisting us to digest these unnatural foods that have been stripped of whatever enzymes they may have had originally. Each product is formulated for a specific purpose, but they overlap in their usefulness.
Allerzyme™ is a complex, vegetarian blend of enzymes and essential oils designed to combat allergies and problems arising from poor bowel function, such as gas, fermentation, poor absorption, water retention and irritable bowel syndrome. In addition to a powerful array of essential oils, it contains enzymes that help break down proteins, sugars, starches and fats, and to make minerals more available. The name Allerzyme reflects the fact that 80 percent of the immune system is in the gut.
Detoxzyme® is a combination of essential oils that work to detoxify and cleanse the digestive system, including the liver and the gallbladder duct, together with specific enzymes to help digest fats, starches and proteins. It also contains phytase to promote absorption of important minerals found in nuts, seeds and grains. In addition, Detoxyme may help keep support healthy cholesterol  and triglyceride levels as well as candida/yeast overgrowth.
Essentialzyme™ is aimed at the reduction of mucus buildup throughout the body and the elimination of toxic waste. The enzymes in Essentialzyme are particularly vital for anyone who has reduced or blocked pancreatic or gallbladder function, acting to restore proper enzyme balance. With its wide array of enzymes, essential oils and botanical ingredients, it helps promote digestion, re-establishment of beneficial flora in the gut and elimination of toxic waste.
Essentialzymes-4 is actually a combination of three former Young Living products: Carbozyme, Lypozyme and Polyzyme. As such, it combines the actions of those products to assist in digesting carbohydrates, fats, and proteins found in modern overly-processed foods and promote the absorption of nutrients for increased vitality. It incorporates dual-time release of enzymes at appropriate phases of the digestive process for enhanced effectiveness.
Any of these products will help digestion and improve nutrition. If you don’t have the one that is most indicated for your condition, “in case of fire, break glass.” In other words, use what you have.
