Supplements

You can’t replace metabolic enzymes you lack by taking a pill, but you can use supplements or supplemental digestive enzymes to supply your body with the energy it needs. If they’re taken at other times then with eating they’re called therapeutic enzymes. They’re the same enzymes but the timing makes the difference. When you take them before a meal they’ll assist in digestion and breaking down of your food. When you take them on an empty stomach between meals they are absorbed into your body and are used systemically. The most important utilization of supplemental enzymes is for digestion,

because your body uses so much energy in the digestion of your food. This benefits your body because it helps your body utilize nutrients and gives more energy to your other systems. This is especially important if you’re ill. Illness means your other systems are not functioning efficiently.

It’s important that if you’re going to use enzymes therapeutically you must also use them for digestion. If you don’t they will digest the food in your gut and will be less potent therapeutically. It is especially important if you’re sick because you must reduce demand on your digestive system so that your body can heal.




If you want to take supplemental enzymes as therapeutic enzymes you should take them on an empty stomach one-half hour before or two hours after eating. When you take them in this manner they aren’t intended to digest your food. They're intended to be absorbed into your blood stream. They can then benefit your other systems such as circulatory, cardiovascular, immune or reproductive. Although they don’t function directly as metabolic enzymes they improve metabolic function. They make up for any deficiency you might have in a specific enzyme. In this manner they improve your health. For example, protease can act as raw material to manufacture white blood cells or it can digest dead or damaged cells that are mainly protein, which would lessen the demand for metabolic protease.
