Every biochemical reaction is driven or controlled by the presence of energy-rich protein molecules known as enzymes. Enzymes, as catalysts, increase the rate at which a reaction reaches equilibrium and, like other catalysts, are not changed during the reaction. Digestive enzymes break down the food we eat into a form the body’s cells recognize and can use. Supplemental digestive enzymes can therefore enhance the bioavailability of the nutrients we ingest. The benefits include overall improved nutritional status, resulting in enhanced immune function, decreased allergic reactions, and better elimination of toxic waste. Learn more »»
Nutrition for human bodies, including your own, provides to living cells those elements and compounds necessary for the cell to thrive. LOHAD approaches nutrition not only from the perspective of what you eat, but how you can assimilate essential elements for life into your cells. In many situations, people are being advised to take various supplements, herbs, or vitamins or to eat a certain diet, and yet no focus is placed on ensuring that whatever is being taken is also being digested and absorbed.
