Why is eating food in its natural state, unprocessed and unrefined, so vital to the maintenance of good health? What is lacking in our modern diet that makes us so susceptible to degenerative disease? What natural elements in food may play a key role in unlocking the secrets of life extension? These fascinating questions, and many more, are answered in Enzyme Nutrition. Written by one of America’s pioneering biochemists and nutrition researchers, Dr. Edward Howell, Enzyme Nutrition presents the most vital nutritional discovery since that of vitamins and minerals—food enzymes. Our digestive organs produce some enzymes internally, however food enzymes are necessary for optimal health and must come from uncooked foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables, raw sprouted grains, unpasteurized dairy products, and food enzyme supplements. Enzyme Nutrition represents more than fifty years of research and experimentation by Dr. Howell. He shows us how to conserve our enzymes and maintain internal balance. As the body regains its strength and vigor, its capacity to maintain its normal weight, fight disease, and heal itself is enhanced.
Agreat many processes take place in your body to allow you to move just a single limb. These processes begin with the mental decision you make, becoming ever more complex in only a few instants. The series of reactions that begins with an urge arising in your brain may number in the billions, the countless enzymes in your body carry out every one of them. For even a very ordinary movement that you may want to perform, a vast number of processes occur, one after the other, inside each of your cells. Even while these thousands of reactions take place to enable that single movement, your brain carries on, and your heart beats, and the blood circulates at full speed. Foods entering your body are digested, your cells carry on their tasks, and all your organs continue to function in a flawless, systematic manner.
"Body weight is an intensely personal thing. There's no escaping it. It greets you every morning in the bathroom mirror, it follows you throughout the day by the reflections in the eyes of everyone you meet, and it whispers a 'good night' benediction as you put out your vanity light. It is your second face." Dr. Allan C. Somersall
This book contains 16 chapters by individual authors reviewing feed enzymes within the context of their mode of action, interaction with intestinal physiology, economic and environmental impacts, and application of the technology to the diets of various livestock species.
