Digestion

Enzymes
Lifecouldnotexistwithoutenzymes.Enzymesconvertthefoodweeatintochemical structuresthatcanpassthroughthemembranesofthecellsliningthedigestivetractand intothebloodstream.Foodmustbedigestedsothatitcanultimatelypassthroughcell membranes.Enzymesalsoaidinconvertingthepreparedfoodintonewmuscle,flesh,bone, nerves,andglands.Workingwiththeliver,theyhelpstoreexcessfoodforfutureenergy andbuildingneeds.Theyalsoassistthekidneys,lungs,liver,skinandcolonintheir importanteliminativetasks.Perhapsitwouldbeeasiertowriteaboutwhatenzymesdon't do,fortheyareinvolvedinalmosteveryaspectoflife. Therearethreemaintypesofenzymes:1)metabolicenzymes,whichperformcountless tasksinsideourbodies,2)digestiveenzymes,whichdigestthefoodsthatweeat,and3) enzymespresentinlivingandrawfoodswhichinitiatedigestion,helpingusdigestourfood. Metabolicanddigestiveenzymesaremanufacturedbyourbodieswhiletheenzymes presentinlivingfoodsaremanufacturedbytheplants.Byconsumingfoodsrichinlive enzymes,weallowourbodiestousetheenergyofmanufacturingdigestiveenzymesfor othermetabolicfunctions. Theheatingoffoodabove118degreesFahrenheit(47degreesCelsius)destroysthe naturallyoccurringenzymesinthefood. Alluncookedfoodscontainanabundanceoffoodenzymeswhichcorrespondtothe nutritionalhighlightsoffood.Forexample,dairyfoods,oils,seedsandnuts,whichare relativelyhighinfatcontent,alsocontainrelativelyhigherconcentrationsoftheenzyme lipasewhichaidsinthedigestionoftheirfats.Carbohydrates,suchasgrains,containa higherconcentrationofamylase[digestscarbohydrates]andlesseramountsoflipaseand protease[digestsprotein].Thebananaisanexcellentexampleofhowafoodis capableofdigestingitsowningredients.Thebananahasabout20percentstarchwhen green.Theenzymeamylasechangesthebananainto20percentsugarwhenthefruitiskept warmforafewdaysandbecomesspeckled.Theamylaseinbananasworksonbanana starch,butnotreadilyonotherstarches,suchaspotatostarch.

Vitamins
Vitaminsareorganicsubstanceswhichthebodyrequiresinsmallamountstocarryout thousandsofbuildingupandbreakingdownfunctions.Unfortunately,thevitaminsinour foodsareoftenrenderedinactivebeforewegetachancetoconsumethem.TheTabers CyclopediaMedicalDictionaryhasthistosayaboutvitaminloss:lossofvitamincontent [occurs]infoodproductsbecauseofvitamininstability,especiallyinoxidationand duringheating.Methodsofpreservingfoodsaddtothelossofvitamins.Pickling,salting, curingorfermentingprocessesusuallycausecompletelossofVitaminC.Commercial canningdestroysfromfiftytoeightyfivepercentofVitaminCcontainedinpeas,lima beans,spinachandasparagus.Pasteurization,unlessspecialprecautionsareobserved, causesalossoffromthirtytosixtypercentofVitaminC.

Protein
AccordingtotheMaxPlanckInstituteforNutritionalResearchinGermany,protein,when cooked,isonly50percentbioavailable.Inotherwords,abouthalftheaminoacids(the buildingblocksofprotein)areunusablebythebodybecausetheyaredestroyedbycooking. TheWorldHealthOrganizationrecommendsthat5percentofonestotaldailycalories comefromprotein.Thisleveliseasilyreachedonaplantbaseddiet.Forexample,9percent ofcaloriesinanorangearederivedfromprotein,fromzucchini17percent,strawberries8, broccoli42,cauliflower31andcorn13.Thefactisthatthecommonlyconsumedplantfoods contain6to45percentoftheircaloriesasprotein.ThisresearchcomesfromJohn McDougall,MD.Hesays,Proteinissoabundantinplantfoodsthatitisimpossibleforany dieticianorscientisttodesignadietthatiscomposedofunprocessedplantfoods(starches andvegetables)and,atthesametime,bedeficientinprotein.Wewouldnothavesurvived asaspeciesifthiswerenottrue.

Essential Fats(Omega3,6,9,GLA,EPA,AA,DHA)
Essentialfatsandfattyacidsareextremelyimportantforhealthandvitality.Essential fatdeficienciesarecorrelatedwithdegenerativediseasesincludingcardiovasculardisease, cancer,diabetes,multiplesclerosis,skinafflictions,dryskin,premenstrualsyndrome, behaviouralproblems,poorwoundhealing,arthritis,glandularatrophy,weakenedimmune functionsandsterility. Theunsaturatedfattyacidscannotbesynthesizedinthebodyandhavebeenconsideredto beessentialtomaintainhealth.
