Are You Deficient In Digestive Enzymes?
If So, It’s Inevitable That You Will Succumb To Degeneration & Disease!
Compiled By Crusador Staff
“Enzymes are vital to health – to life itself. These special proteins are necessary for every chemical reaction in your body and the normal activity of your cells, tissues, fluids, and organs. Enzymes digest the food you eat and are essential for the production of energy required to run your body. Vitamins, minerals, and hormones can do nothing without enzymes….” – Lita Lee, PhD, The Enzyme Cure
Do you suffer from any of these conditions?
· Acid Reflux
· Intestinal Disorders
· Food Cravings
These are just a few of the many tell-tale signs of enzyme deficiency in your diet. Pay attention to these intelligent warning signals and correct your enzyme deficient diet before your symptoms manifest into a full-blown health crisis.
What Are Enzymes?
Enzymes are unique protein molecules that act as catalysts, meaning every nutrient and bodily chemical action that takes place requires them to perform their task. All of your cells, organs, bones, muscles, and tissues are run by enzymes. Simply put, without enzymes, life would not exist. Although vitamins, minerals, hormones, proteins and other substances are essential to life, it is enzymes that perform the work and utilize these substances in restoring, repairing and maintaining health and life. It is a proven fact that Individuals who are enzyme deficient are subject to disease and degeneration.
When it comes to the subject of maintaining quality health through diet and nutrition enzymes must be an area where top priority is given because no dietary/nutritional regimen will be successful without the aid of digestive enzymes. Digestive enzymes are required to efficiently break down the foods we eat, and the supplements we take, so the nutrition can make its way past the digestive system into the bloodstream, and eventually into the cells to sustain life.
Enzymes are one of the most important elements of your health!

A large segment of the population understands the need for vitamins and minerals to maintain health, however, few seem to understand that you can pop all the supplements in the world, but if your diet doesn’t consist primarily of raw “living foods” abundant in enzymes, or you aren’t supplementing with digestive enzymes with each meal, chances are you are lacking the enzymes needed to make those dietary supplements work. The end result could just be a bunch of expensive urine.
Digestive enzymes are present in all raw, unprocessed foods. Your body was designed to live on a diet that consists primarily of raw, un-cooked, enzyme-rich foods. The explosion in disease over the past hundred years is directly related to the massive increase in consumption of processed foods that are termed “dead foods” because they lack living vitamins, minerals, enzymes, essential fats and amino acids. Cooked, microwaved and irradiated foods only add to this deficiency burden. When enzymes are abundant in the foods you eat they “predigest” themselves and are quickly assimilated into the bloodstream, requiring little energy from your body.
Modern food processing destroys nearly all of the naturally-occurring enzymes in food. With the prevalence of cooked and processed foods, the average American diet is essentially devoid of food enzymes. When you eat cooked or processed foods regularly your body is eventually forced into a compensation mode where it literally robs from its systemic enzyme reserves in an attempt to supply the enzymes needed to digest that food. This requires an enormous amount of energy and is quite taxing on the body. That’s why it’s very common to be tired after eating a large cooked meal compared to how you feel after eating a healthy salad or smoothie chock full of fresh fruits or veggies that still have their enzymes intact.
After years of consuming enzyme-deficient foods your body will eventually exhibit health problems that typically manifest in the digestive and intestinal system first. Since digestive related disorders are the #1 complaint to doctors it is essential for you to learn all you can about digestive enzymes and make sure your diet is supplemented with a well rounded, high quality enzyme supplement so you maximize the foods you eat and the supplements you consume. A person's lifespan is directly related to the exhaustion of their enzyme potential. The use of food enzymes decreases that rate of exhaustion, and thus, results in a longer, healthier, and more vital life.
Which Enzymes Should You Use For Digestion?
There are a wide range of enzymes that can be beneficial for aiding with digestion. Vegetarians, Vegans and those that observe Kosher laws will typically have concerns with a large percentage of the digestive enzyme formulas on the market because they contain animal derived enzymes from the pig and ox. The thought of ingesting Ox bile just doesn’t sound too appetizing! While some of these questionable enzymes can aid in digestion it is our belief that a more biblically based, vegetarian sourced enzyme supplement is best.
That’s why we developed FULL SPECTRUM ENZYMES. When considering enzyme formulas we wanted to develop one that was broad spectrum; meaning it would help digest protein, fats and carbohydrates. Furthermore we wanted to create an enzyme formula that would not get destroyed in the gut but rather had the ability to survive and function across a broad pH range (2-12) in the digestive tract.
Here is a list of the enzymes you will find in FULL SPECTRUM ENZYMES and what the specific role each of them plays in the digestive process.
Glucoamylase – A multi-domain enzyme that cleaves or breaks off a free glucose molecule from the complex sugar-based chains that form starch or from the simpler sugar, maltose. The glucose that is freed can then be used as a source of energy for the body. This enzyme, when combined with other enzymes has been shown to aid in easing the negative effects of irritable bowel syndrome. Other studies have shown a positive effect on various digestive related issues.
Lipase – An enzyme that the body uses to break down fats in food so they can be absorbed in the intestines. Lipase is primarily produced in the pancreas but is also in the mouth and stomach. Most people produce enough pancreatic lipase, but people with cystic fibrosis, Crohn's disease, and celiac disease may not have enough lipase to get the nutrition they need from their food.
Bromelain – A miracle enzyme found in pineapples that digests protein. Bromelain is very beneficial for the body as a whole -- particularly in terms of reducing inflammation and swelling in joints. Bromelain can digest proteins and may help relieve stomach upset or heartburn, particularly when used in conjunction with other enzymes such as amylase (which digests starch) and lipase (which digests fat). One animal study suggests that the antibacterial effects of bromelain may help control diarrhea caused by bacteria. Another study suggests bromelain may be a novel therapy for inflammatory bowel disease.
Cellulase – An enzyme that is invaluable in breaking down cellulose, the carbohydrate that is the main part of the cell walls of plants, into beta-glucose. Cellulose is non-digestible by humans because they do not produce the enzyme cellulase. As an addition to an enzyme supplement it can help break down plant material better, thereby getting the most from the plants that we eat.
Alpha-Galactosidase – An enzyme that helps to relieve various stomach related problems such as gas and bloating. It also promotes overall digestion. Alpha-Galactosidase helps hydrolyze polysaccharides that are typically found in legumes and are not digestible in the small intestine. As these sugars are not absorbed they pass into the large intestine where they ferment and produce gas resulting in bloating, pain and general discomfort.
Xylanese – This enzyme deconstructs plant structural material by breaking down hemicellulose, a major component of the plant cell wall. Xylanese is produced by fermentation and consists of 190 amino acids. Xylanases belong to the glucanase enzyme family and are characterized by their ability to break down various xylans to produce short-chain xylo-oligosaccharides.
Lactase – An essential digestive enzyme for digestive hydrolysis of lactose in milk. Deficiency of lactase causes lactose intolerance. Lactase, like many other enzymes, serves as a catalyst within living organisms to facilitate the breakdown of complex sugars that our bodies can not use, such as disaccharides, into simple sugars that our bodies can use, such as galactose (milk sugar) and glucose (sweet sugar).
Hemicellulase – An enzyme that breaks down hemicellulose. Hemicellulose catagorizes a variety of polysaccharides that are more complex than sugars and less complex than cellulose, that are found in plant walls. It is a mixture of enzymes which can hydrolyze the indigestible components of plant fibers.
Invertase – Ayeast-derived enzyme that splits sucrose into glucose and fructose. Invertase is an overall beneficial digestive enzyme that helps to minimize gas and bloating.
Peptidase – An enzyme that helps with protein digestion. Peptidase splits peptides into their constituent amino acids.
“In their primary role, enzymes are catalysts – substances that accelerate and precipitate the hundreds of thousands of biochemical reactions in the body that control life’s processes. If it were not for the catalytic action of enzymes, most of these reactions would take place far too slowly to sustain life…” -- Prescription For Nutritional Healing
