The ageing process and certain health issues cause a reduction in the body’s production of digestive enzymes. One effect of this reduction is a bloated feeling soon after eating a large meal. Digestive enzymes are essential to the body’s absorption and full use of food. The primary digestive enzymes are protease (to digest protein), amylase (to digest carbohydrate), and lipase (to digest fat). These enzymes function as biological catalysts to speed the reactions that break down food. Raw foods also provide enzymes that naturally break down food for proper absorption. The capacity of the living organism to make enzymes diminishes with age.
The complete breakdown of foods also helps with concerns such as halitosis (bad breath) and body odours because food does not stagnate in the gut. The complete digestion of foods also results in enhanced energy production due to the increase in nutrient availability.
