Despite the present of sufficient amounts of vitamins, minerals, water and proteins, life cannot be sustained without enzymes. Scientists are unable to manufacture enzyme synthetically.
All of the body organs, tissues and cells are run by metabolic enzyme. They are the workers that build the body from proteins, carbohydrates and fats. If the body must produce sufficient amounts of enzymes for digestive function, then production of enzymes for proper metabolic function may be lacking.
Those who do not eat raw foods or supplement their diets with enzymes put undue strain on the supply of enzymes in their bodies. Because enzymes are the only nutrients that can supply the body with energy needed for its activities, overuse can impair the functioning capacity of the body, making it susceptible to cancer, obesity, cardiovascular disease and a host of other illnesses.
