Every living organism contains enzymes. Enzymes are catalysts. These catalysts help change other substances without being permanently changed themselves.


Some enzymes can work properly only in the presence of other substances. Often these substances are vitamins and minerals. In order for your body's enzymes to function well, your diet must include these important substances.


Other substances can slow or even stop the action of enzymes. Metals such as silver, lead, and mercury and chemicals interfere with the normal actions of enzymes and act as poisons when they enter the body. Radiation and heat can also affect the operation of enzymes, often by causing changes in the shape of the enzyme molecule.


Enzymes can also help monitor the amount of glucose (sugar) in the body.


When a disease has reduced the body's ability to produce digestive enzymes, they can be supplied through pills, the digestive enzymes are free to act just as the body’s own enzymes would.


Enzymes also help the lung congested with thick mucus. These enzymes liquefy the mucus, making it easier to remove it.

Other enzymes are used o dissolve blood clots in certain organs.














Mitochondria are the cell's powerhouses. On the inner membranes are the enzymes that release usable energy from small food molecules.


Ribosomes:  Enzymes are the chemical regulators of cells.


Lysosomes: Most cells have tiny enzyme-filled capsules called lysosomes. Lysosomes circulate in the cytoplasm and use their enzymes as the demolition crew. They dissolve away cellular structures that are no longer needed or foreign substances such as invading bacteria or viruses.


The breakdown of an energy source by cells to obtain usable energy is called cellular respiration. Cellular respiration requires many enzymes. Enzymes are catalysts, substances that help change other substances without being permanently changed themselves. You might think of enzymes as the ‘tools needed to do a job’. Likewise, enzymes are tools used to perform jobs, such as respiration in cells.


During cellular respiration, each enzyme does something different to the sugar molecule. In this case the enzymes work like an assembly line in reverse. This enzyme ‘disassembly line’ takes the sugar apart, periodically releasing small amounts of energy. These small amounts of energy fuel the cell. And all cells require energy to maintain life.


Our body does make enzymes, but it is very important to eat enzymes as well through ‘Living’ food. Problem is, enzymes die when its temperature reaches 110-120 degrees Fahrenheit, such as cooking your food. Just like our bodies, when we get a fever and our temperature rises up to 108-110 our cells start to die. It all makes sense. Take a look at your breakfast plate, lunch plate, and dinner plate… Are you getting the enzymes your body needs? This is junior high science people. You must have raw living food!


Enzymes unmask cancer cells and aid your immune system so your body can kill cancer cells.
