The 4 Types Of Enzymes

Sunday, September 5th, 2010

Essentially there are four different kinds of enzymes, they are:

  • Food enzymes: These are found in raw foods.  There are sufficient enzymes in each raw food to digest it.  The level of active enzymes in a food is affected by many things – including:  food additives, radiation, long term storage, and any kind of food processing, especially heat.  Enzymes in foods are destroyed when they reach a heat over 116°F.


  • Digestive enzymes:  These help break food down into basic components so you can absorb the nutrients that are required to build cells, maintain organs and repair tissue.  These types of enzymes are present in the digestive juices your body produces, starting with the saliva in the mouth continuing down to and including the intestines.  These enzymes include protease, amylase, lipase, malt diastase, invertase, lactase, pectinase and alpha galactosidase.  Digestive enzymes break down different food groups.


  • Metabolic enzymes: These enzymes enhance and support metabolic processes. They are made by the body and drive chemical reactions within the cells.  On a cellular level,  metabolic enzymes direct body systems and are interconnected with every functional organ and biological system in the body.


  • Supplemental enzymes: These are cultured from plant enzymes. Plant enzymes are grown from food such as mushrooms, soy and wheat in a laboratory setting with specific actions rendered in units.  They are nonpathogenic Aspergillus Niger species and are free of mycelium contamination.  Removal of all aspergilli and fungi leave only the enzymatic action.  Supplemental enzymes are a concentrated form of enzymatic action.

What Are Plant Based Enzymes?

Saturday, September 4th, 2010

At Abundant Health Center, LLC, we choose to use only the highest pharmaceutical-grade enzymes, vitamins and minerals, from natural sources.  In our search for the highest quality product and the most congruent company we found Enzyme Research Products.  Their products are scientifically formulated in highly concentrated, precisely balanced combinations.

All of the products from Enzyme Research are laboratory-grown using the strictest quality controls. The great thing about this company is that they require a certificate of analysis for every ingredient in all of their blends from a reputable testing laboratory.

We have found Enzyme Research Products to be the ideal choice for the widest spectrum of clients including vegetarians, children and patients with ulcers, allergies and sensitivities.  We have even had customers with poorly functioning digestive systems, nutritional deficiencies or chronic health problems that have shared with us the benefits they have experienced from using the plant based enzyme products developed by Enzyme Research.

One of the great things about plant based enzymes is how effective they are in a wide pH range levels, unlike enzymes from animal sources.  The Enzyme Research products are free of fillers, artificial colors, flavors and preservatives.

Lastly, enzymes are needed for every chemical reaction that takes place in your body.  Enzymes are connected with every working organ and facilitate all metabolism. Currently science has identified over 5,000 enzymes and there are thousands more yet undiscovered. Enzymes are biocatalysts, making internal chemical reactions work faster and more efficiently.
