Enzymes Making Headlines

Posted by: Garden of Life on Wednesday, June 06, 2012

Enzymes have invaded the world of the rich and famous, with the spotlight on A-listers who use systemic and digestive enzymes as a natural way to maintain their health, beauty, and energy.

Systemic enzymes, like those found in pineapple and papaya, are popping up all over the beauty industry. Companies like Natura Bissé, Immunocologie, and even plastic surgeon, Dr. Adam R. Kolker, are selling beauty products for people with sensitive skin or those who prefer a natural alternative to chemical exfoliates. As more people become aware of the benefits of enzymes, we can only expect that natural products for skin care and overall beauty will continue to appear on the market.

Stars just can’t seem to get enough of enzymes for outer beauty, but they also praise it for inner health. Big wave surfer Laird Hamilton says that he takes the supplement Wobenzym N for inflammation in the May issue of Men’s Journal, and in the most recent issue of Extraordinary Health magazine he talks a little more on the subject:

“Wobenzym is an amazing natural product,” he says. “[Its] ingredients work synergistically with the body to help break down harmful proteins that cause inflammation.”

Laird’s not the only one talking about Wobenzym N in the media. The enzyme supplement was also mentioned in the May 7 issue of First for Women. The article “Enzyme Breakthrough!” talks about how enzymes boost weight loss, support joint health, and other help with other important body functions. Systemic enzymes such as Wobenzym N are helpful because bromelain, an enzyme found in pineapple, breaks down inflammatory proteins in the body to effectively relieve pain and speed the healing of strain on muscles and tendons.

Inner beauty is aided not just by systemic enzymes, however, but digestive enzymes as well. Celebrity nutritionist, Kimberly Snyder, advises actors and actresses like Channing Tatum and Drew Barrymore to take digestive enzymes daily. Snyder is also featured in Extraordinary Health where she talks extensively about how eating healthy, plant-based foods and taking enzymes can lead to a prettier reflection. Snyder recommends that people should take digestive enzymes to ensure that they get the optimum nutrition they need to fuel their busy lifestyles.

At Garden of Life, we are big believers in digestive enzymes and are glad to see them becoming a household word just like probiotics. Among our products are Omega-Zyme and Omega-Zyme Ultra, which include over 20 digestive enzymes to help process difficult foods like broccoli, nuts, seeds, and beans. The enzymes also relieve stress on the intestinal tract by helping to digest proteins, carbohydrates, sugars, starches, fats, and dairy products. In addition to Omega-Zyme, Garden of Life has a Raw Digestion line of products, including Raw Enzymes for Men and Women as well as those over 50. All of the products support digestion with enzymes and the raw products are uncooked, untreated, unadulterated and free of binders and fillers.

Whether you choose to try systemic enzymes, digestive enzymes, or raw enzymes, we think you’ll love what enzymes can do for your health – inside and out!

I have been taking Wobenzym for several years and think it's an amazing product! I haven't tried digestive enzymes yet, but they are next on my list.

Enzymes are biological molecules that catalyze chemical reactions.A living system controls its activity through enzymes. An enzyme is a protein molecule that is a biological catalyst with three characteristics. First, the basic function of an enzyme is to increase the rate of a reaction. Most cellular reactions occur about a million times faster than they would in the absence of an enzyme. Second, most enzymes act specifically with only one reactant to produce products. In enzymatic reactions, the molecules at the beginning of the process, called substrates, are converted into different molecules, called products. Almost all chemical reactions in a biological cell need enzymes in order to occur at rates sufficient for life. Since enzymes are selective for their substrates and speed up only a few reactions from among many possibilities, the set of enzymes made in a cell determines which metabolic pathways occur in that cell.
