Types of Enzymes

Metabolic

Metabolic enzymes are produced internally and are responsible for maintaining the body’s blood, tissues and organs. They are responsible for making new cells as well as repairing and removing material from old ones.

Food

Provided solely through food and supplements, food enzymes work with digestive enzymes to break food down; however, food enzymes are killed through heating, processing and other preparation methods in the modern world. Vitamins and minerals work as co-enzymes to further increase the activity of food enzymes, but because food enzymes are frequently compromised, co-enzymes are not utilized to their full potential.

Digestive

Produced internally and available through supplements, digestive enzymes help break down, deliver and absorb food and its nutrients. With each enzyme’s function to target a specific compound, there are three primary groups of digestive enzymes: proteases, lipases and carbohydrases (amylases), which initiate the digestion of protein, fats and carbohydrates, respectively.
