The essential oils can be an excellent choice to improve our health, beauty, slow down aging, etc. yet they cannot do the job alone. Their partner in bringing about change are enzymes, nutrients, PH, good water, lifestyle, etc. If you have been using essential oils and you have not achieved the desired goal for using them, the following information may give you the missing link.
Enzymes why? The following information is from different sources I trust.
Enzymes are essential to life and good health. You need enzymes to perform even the simplest body functions, and they are particularly important for maintaining healthy digestion and absorption of nutrients, detoxification, rebuilding of tissue and so much more.
As we age, our body's ability to make its own enzymes lessens. Valuable enzymes are also lost every day through our sweat and other metabolic processes. Because processing and cooking the food robs it of it's vital enzymes, it's unlikely that we are getting all the enzymes our body needs to function each day.
Examples of the most known enzymes:
The enzyme Protease breaks down protein into smaller units called amino acids, which are the building blocks of important chemicals like hormones, neurotransmitter, they build cells, muscles, skin , flesh, nerves, etc..
Amylase breaks down starch and other carbohydrates into useable fuel for our body.
Papain and Bromelain assists with the breakdown of proteins in the body.
Cellulase, the only enzyme our body can't produce on its own, is needed to break fibers and starches down into smaller units.
Lipase helps to digest fats, as well as fat-soluble vitamins and fatty acids. It helps with fat absorption and with burning fat for energy.
Following are conditions that may be caused by enzyme deficiency:
To maximize our own enzyme production have at least one fresh salad a day. Fresh, raw foods not only require much less digestive work by our digestive system, they can provide many more of their own enzymes to work with ours.
Actually many nutrient deficiencies result from the body's inability to absorb them, not from thelack of the nutrients themselves. Lack of enzymes and lack of energy is the reason for most of us to not be able to absorb them.
