How to Put the Brakes on Aging Through Full-Spectrum Enzyme Supplementation
Many enzyme researchers now believe that the aging process is nothing more than a severe enzyme deficiency, and that aging can be delayed by taking enzyme supplements.
As we age, our bodies produce fewer enzymes. That’s important because systemic enzymes are vital to our capacity to maintain optimal physical function. If we don’t produce enough enzymes, we slow down and become susceptible to systemic stresses and chronic conditions—the aging process kicks in with a vengeance.
Scientists have categorized aging into 4 active problems:
- Chronic inflammation
- A build-up of fibrous tissue
- Thickening of blood
- Weakening of the immune system
Enzymes play a role in all of these conditions. When we’re younger, enzymes help stimulate and regulate processes like …
- Metabolism (properly converting food into fuel)
- Healing, such as tissue regeneration and cell repair
- Cleansing, where enzymes devour and flush out toxins in our blood and digestive systems
Systemic enzymes work like switches on an electrical grid, directing actions and sending power when and where the body needs it. The result is a finely tuned system while we are young.
But we get older … and enzyme production starts to decline.
FACT : Enzyme production in adults drops 13% for every 10 years we age. For example, a 70-year-old has only 25% of the enzymes present in a 20-year-old, resulting in a failing digestive system that absorbs too few nutrients.
Without enzymes, breakdowns start to occur. Our bodies become overwhelmed. We age, not just because another year goes by, but because we no longer have the key enzyme controllers that keep us vital. As systemic enzymes are depleted, our immune systems can no longer differentiate between harmless substances and potentially dangerous intrusions.
This dysfunction leads to a wide array of autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and ulcerative colitis.
FACT : New research indicates that even Alzheimer’s disease is the result of a nutritional enzyme deficiency of CDP-choline (citicoline). Citicoline provides key developmental structure and functions like stem cells, supporting lifelong memory function along with brain and spinal cord development.
But just as enzyme depletion speeds aging, so does enzyme supplementation arrest the aging process!
The key is taking the right quantity and combination of high-quality systemic enzymes. Medical practitioners knowledgeable in enzymatic therapy can provide enzyme testing. The advantage to testing is that it can reveal specific deficiencies, so you’ll know the best combination and quantity of enzymes to take.
You can target problem areas and supplement levels of core enzymes to maintain and regulate daily good health. From there, you can build your own personalized daily systemic enzyme plan.
Targeted enzyme supplementation can…
- Speed recovery from exercise and injury
- Eliminate fluid retention and swelling
- Digest dead tissues such as cysts and blood clots
- Prevent build-up of excess fibrin and scar tissue
- Alleviate pain and inflammation
- Accelerate tissue repair (including bruising and stiffness)
- Heal post-operative injuries
- Reduce recovery time for bone fractures
- Enhance blood flow for better nutrient absorption
While the aging process is clearly linked to systemic enzymes, a growing body of research points to the power of enzymatic regulation in a number of other serious diseases. Enzymes also play key roles in preventing …
- Cardiovascular diseases
- Cystic Fibrosis
Every day, more research highlights the value of systemic enzymes to recover and maintain good health—especially as we get older. It’s never too late to get yourself tested, make a plan for enzyme supplementation, and start improving your health.
As an alternative to enzyme testing, you can opt for the recommended daily dose of a high-quality full-spectrum enzyme supplement. The best full-spectrum enzyme supplements provide protein digestion through all portions of the digestive tract … digestion of fats and oils of vegetable and animal origins … and aid digestion of excessive fat in today’s typical high-fat, high-carb diet. Full-spectrum enzyme supplements also improve digestion of carbohydrate-rich foods, such as grains and vegetables, including those in the legume and cruciferous families, and the sugars found in milk and dairy products.
Full-spectrum enzyme supplements are available at many health food stores and from online retailers. Type “full spectrum enzyme supplement” into any search engine, and you’ll find an array of suppliers and resources.
