I. The Benefits of Super Enzymes:
Over the last 6 months, I have been experiencing with Super Enzymes to help with my digestion, and also help with the breakdown of the macronutrients with inside my body. I was skeptical at first, but since I have been taking it, I have not only felt better, but I have lost 3 inches in my hips, and also 2 inches within my waist. Also my sleep pattern has increasingly gotten better, and my late wake ups in the middle of the night, have subsided.  I have posted some positives of taking this supplement, and highly recommend it to everyone within the gym. You can find this supplement on iherb.com for a relatively cheap price, and the benefits are great!
Purifies the blood.
All pathogen (virus, fungus and bacteria) are made up of protein, or use a protein coating to protect themselves (as a virus does). The enzyme protease breaks down proteins, and since the invaders of our blood system are protein, it makes sense that ingesting protease could break down the protein invaders.
Strengthens the immune system.
Enzymes deliver nutrients to our cells, carry away toxic debris, digest our food, purify our blood, deliver hormones by feeding and fortifying our endocrine system and balance our cholesterol and triglycerides levels while doing no harm to our body
Breaks down fats.
The enzyme lipase breaks down and digests fat. This takes stress off our gallbladder, liver and pancreas. This will enhance weight loss.
Enzymes lower cholesterol and triglycerides levels.
Cholesterol and triglycerides are fats that circulate in our blood stream. The enzyme lipase will control the release of these fats which could protect us from certain forms of heart disease, like atherosclerosis.
Enzymes enhance mental capacity.
Our body uses glucose from the liver to feed and fortify the hypothalamus. Our red blood cells carry oxygen to the brain, along with glucose to feed the brain cells. When there is a dysfunction with this mechanism we become fatigued and are unable to think clearly. The hypothalamus directs our endocrine system and is responsible for our water balance, body temperature and appetite.
Enzymes cleanse the colon.
Foods that are not digested properly are stored in our colon and digestive problems can begin. Some researchers estimate that nearly 70% of all illness starts in our colon. Undigested protein putrefies, carbohydrates ferment, and fats turn rancid in our colon. Enzymes will break down our foods properly and keep our colon free of these toxins.
Enzymes help us sleep.
Enzymes enhance our endocrine glands. The under nourished endocrine system may create a malfunction in our hormonal system which can upset our nervous system and sleep patterns. When we are unable to digest our food or deliver the nutrients to keep our endocrine and nervous system in balance, we cannot rebuild our body or it’s energy level.
Enzymes help us shed excess weight and fat.
Many overweight people have a metabolic imbalance. Remember, our endocrine system regulates our metabolism. Once we are able to fortify the endocrine system, have our bowels working regularly and can digest our food rather than turning it into fat, we have a successful combination. Enzymes, especially lipase, will break down our fats properly, which will help us bum fat, thus promoting weight loss.
Improves aging skin.
An adequate supply of enzymes is absolutely essential for keeping the skin young looking and healthy. Enzymes fight the aging process by increasing blood supply to the skin, bringing with it life giving nutrients and carrying away waste products that can make your skin look dull and wrinkled. Our circulation slows down as we get older. To counteract this we need to consume more enzymes.
Maintains proper pH balance in our Gl tract.
Friendly flora such as L. Acidophilus and bifidobacerium are important to the intestinal tract for maintaining proper pH and also for controlling the population of potential pathogenic organisms like clostridium and Candida. Enzymes have been proven to be very effective in the control of beneficial bacteria. Another role of beneficial bacteria is the actual synthesis of highly favorable natural chemicals in the colon through the fermentation process.
These fermentive products include such molecular species as natural antibiotics and very importantly, digestive enzymes. These enzymes can play an extremely important role in the digestion of otherwise incompletely digested food substances, especially proteins.
Enzymes maintain proper pH balance in the urine.
Research has shown that a balance of the plant enzymes (lipase, protease, and amylase) eaten by individuals produce a proper urine pH of 6.3 to 6.6 in 24 hour urinalysis
