Biochemical processes and enzymes

Enzymes have often been referred to as the missing link to health. Even in the presence of sufficient amounts of vitamins and minerals (which act as coenzymes and cofactors) water and other nutrients, life as we know it could not exist without the action of enzymes. Enzymes are proteins that catalyze (i.e. accelerate) chemical reactions. Enzymes are present in every cell and are responsible for regulating virtually all of the biochemical processes carried out,...

Enzymes and metabolic health

Enzymes act as catalysts in the body, enabling the release of energy and the operation of metabolic processes to occur at lightning speed. Unlike simple chemical catalysts, enzymes are consumed in the metabolic processes and must constantly be replaced; for this purpose the body requires an adequate supply of minerals, vitamins and amino acids with which to make them.Powered by carbon and hydrogen (from food), combining with the oxygen from the atmosphere, are the microscopic cells of the body,...
