Cleaning solvents, antibiotics, household cleaners, microwaves, radiation, and heating over 120 degrees are elements that kill enzymes and enzyme activity and prevent enzyme development in our bodies. Our magnificent bodies create over 3,000 different kinds of enzymes, all with their own job description. Isn’t that interesting.
Within the cells of our lungs, liver, brain, and digestive system, we should have millions of enzymes when we are healthy—literally millions and millions. No one, no scientist, has ever been able to document or determine how many millions of enzymes actually exist in a healthy human body, and part of that is because they are having a hard time finding a healthy subject to study.
If you build up your enzyme storage reserve and maintain it, you will discover that you will enjoy good health. I get asked constantly how I go into a country, go into the jungle, deal with what I do, come back, and just keep going and going and going and not get sick. I eat more enzymes than I eat anything else, and I have ever since I made Essentialzyme in 1984. That and the oils are my mainstays. I rub oils on and drink them.
When you do that, you reduce the chance of being sick, and you are able to do more, perform more, think better, and think more clearly. One of my young colleagues just two days ago was traveling with me, and he asked me how I remember all the things I have to remember. I told him that it’s easy, because enzymes stimulate the brain for memory retention, memory alertness, and articulating.
