In this section of Seattle Organic Restaurants I’m going to talk about enzymes. Enzymes have an important role in all of the biochemical activities in the body. Enzymes are necessary for brain stimulation, organ and cell repair, food digestion and providing energy for the body. Without enzymes, life as we know wpuldn't exist, even if minerals, vitamins and water still did exist. Enzymes take apart in thousands of biochemical reactions in our bodies; if enzymes didn’t exist, most of these reactions will take much longer in order to sustain a life.

Enzymes are involved in many actions in our bodies, for example our food is digested and broken down by our liver. Enzymes can help lungs, colon, skin, kidneys and liver. Enzymes also can deliver the nutrients in the body to skin, bone, nerve cells and muscle tissues.

For example, phosphorous can be converted to bone by one enzyme. The blood is protected from chemical wastes by enzymes and enzymes create energy for cells. There are two groups of enzymes; metabolic and digestive enzymes. Metabolic enzymes control different chemical reactions in cell such as detoxification; metabolic enzymes are also energizer. The cell, organs and tissues’ activities in the body are all managed by metabolic enzymes. There are two types of metabolic enzymes; catalase and superoxide dismutase (SOD).

Digestive enzymes break down the food and enable nutrients to be absorbed in the blood by body. There are three types of digestive enzymes called protease, lipase and amylase. Amylase is responsible of breaking down carbohydrates and specific types of sugar.

Enzymes are sensitive to heat, even moderate or low heat destroys enzymes in foods. Eating raw foods and taking enzyme supplements can help to prevent the depletion of live enzymes in the body and can reduce stress. Superfoods like pineapple, bananas, mangos, papaya and avocados are full of enzymes.
