Many of you are probably familiar with enzymes, but I'd like to discuss why we've devoted so much of our focus to them at Karyn's and why they're featured so prominently in our supplement line. First of all, let's look at ourselves as entities endowed with biochemical energy. That's the difference between us and lifeless organic material. Some people, of course, have more life in them than others, and certain factors are associated with more or less of this life energy (being young vs. old, eating plant-based/raw/whole unprocessed foods vs. animal-based/cooked/refined processed foods, low alcohol/synthetic drug use vs. high use, being calm and relaxed vs. agitated and hysterical, etc.) These factors can all be observed in terms of enzyme abundance vs. deficiency.
Enzymes are the biochemical carriers of the energy that we require for all of our activities, voluntary and involuntary. Metabolic enzymes are produced in our bodies to power all of our organs and biological systems. Digestive enzymes are produced in our bodies to chemically break down complex organic ingested matter into simpler substances that can be absorbed into the bloodstream and distributed throughout the body where they can be further converted, stored, and/or used to synthesize the more complex structures of which we're composed. Food enzymes, if available, predigest food in the early stages of digestion before we secrete digestive enzymes.
Our energetic capacity to synthesize enzymes is not unlimited or unchanging, but varies in accordance with the demands we place on it. These demands are the very same factors that are associated with diminished life energy (consumption of animal-based/cooked/refined processed foods, alcohol/synthetic drug use, agitation and hysteria) because they require high levels of enzyme production to neutralize. It therefore stands to reason that by minimizing such enzyme/energy loss we will maximize enzyme/energy retention and will live longer, healthier, calmer and happier than otherwise.
A plant-based diet consisting of whole unprocessed raw foods that we teach, encourage and facilitate at Karyn's will certainly minimize the enzymatic strain that we subject ourselves to. However, many of us have a lot of damage resulting from inefficient enzyme use to repair, and may not be currently free of habits that deplete high levels of enzymatic energy. Fortunately we have the means of assistance in repairing past damage and in lessening current damage caused by any less-than-ideal habits which we may have yet to abandon entirely.
I refer, of course, to enzyme supplementation. Karyn's Digestive Enzyme blend (more will be offered on the systemic blend in another blog entry) features a broad spectrum of plant-derived enzymes formulated by Viktoras Kulvinskas (author of "Survival in the 21st Century" and co-founder of the Hippocrates Institute) and available exclusively at Karyn's. Taken with food (and beverages), these enzymes predigest it before the gastric and pancreatic digestive fluids are secreted, and digestion can then proceed with less internal digestive enzyme secretion.
By adopting a supplement regimen of this premium quality blend we preserve our energetic capacity and allow for greater metabolic activity in systems that would otherwise suffer enzymatic neglect.
May we all live long, healthy, calm and happy!
