The Importance of Taking Digestive Enzymes in Spiruzyme D Before Each Meal
“You are what you digest and absorb.” – Amy Myers, MD
You may be eating good food and even taking Spirulina Filipina at this point, but what you may not know is that you are not fully absorbing nutrients from both. This is the reason why we have a new campaign, started by our Vice-President, Ma’am Shiela Tiru, that all should begin to take Spiruzyme D, before even taking Spirulina Filipina.
For weight maintenance: One capsule 30 minutes before each meal.
For weight loss: Two capsules 30 minutes BEFORE each meal.
For weight gain: Two capsules right AFTER each meal.
Why are digestive enzymes crucial?
“Enzymes break down fat, carbohydrate, and protein into their basic building blocks so that the body can digest and use them. Without enzymes, even the most balanced natural foods diet would be worthless - because the food cannot be digested and used by the body.” (customers.hbci.com)
Why do diseases occur when the body is deficient in digestive enzymes?
“When the body receives foods deficient in enzymes, it increases its number of white blood cells as a defense mechanism. Enzymes are then released from these cells as well as from the lymphatic tissue and spleen, where they also are stored in the blood to digest toxins resulting from eating processed foods.
When white blood cells are continually elevated due to a diet high in processed food, the immune system is weakened. This is because enzymes, normally held in reserve to help fight infection, are instead pulled out of storage from white blood cells and other storage sites to digest the processed food.” (customers.hcbi.com)
Why do all need to supplement first with digestive enzymes in Spiruzyme D, before taking other SFF products, including Spirulina Filipina?
Let us face the fact that all have compromised digestive tracts and systems, which need to be repaired first. Digestive enzyme storages are depleted, and the stomach lining and intestinal tract are damaged because of the following reasons:
* processed food – The human body is designed to absorb only raw or fermented foods, which contain natural digestive enzymes. Cooked and processed foods do not contain enzymes; so, when these are consumed, they deplete the body’s enzyme storage or enzyme “bank,” paving the way for the occurrence of digestive issues, lack of absorption of food, and an overworked pancreas which is stressed to release more enzymes.
“Although enzymes are present in all raw foods, they become devitalized in cooked or highly processed foods. Temperatures greater than 118° F. kill enzymes. Even steaming vegetables kills enzymes, as does irradiate or microwaving them. Freezing, however, does not affect enzymes. If we ate a diet consisting of 75 percent raw foods, supplemental enzymes would not be required.” (customers.hcbi.com)
* drugs– Drugs are highly acidic and also block the absorption of nutrients. “Certain medications reduce the absorption of specific nutrients in the gastrointestinal tract by binding them before they’re absorbed into the bloodstream.” (nutritionreview.org)
* stress - “Stress can also have the opposite effect on your digestive tract. For some constitutions, it can cause food to move too quickly through your system, not leaving enough time for the nutrients to be absorbed, which leads to nutritional deficiencies.” (psychologyofeating.com)
The stomach lining must be repaired, and the digestive enzymes that are depleted, for the reasons stated above, must be restored, or else the body absorbs very little nutrition.When nutrition is inadequate, diseases come by more easily.
Constipation, bloating and other digestive issues, autoimmune diseases, arthritis, hardening of the arteries, high cholesterol, diabetes, high blood pressure are all caused by a deficiency of digestive enzymes. The most dreaded would be cancer. It is thus critical for all to take the pancreatic digestive enzymes in Spiruzyme D daily (with each meal taken).
"Pancreatic Proteolytic enzymes are capable of bursting those cancer cell walls.
If we use up what our pancreas can produce solely to digest food because our foods are lacking sufficient digestive enzymes, we rob the pancreas of its metabolic and proteolytic enzymes.
Pancreatic Proteolytic enzymes are capable of destroying individual cancer cells, and other metabolic enzymes are important for non-cancerous cells' ability to metabolize oxygen." (pancan.org)
