What are Enzymes?

Enzymes are biological catalysts or assistants. Enzymes consist of various types of proteins that work to drive the chemical reaction required for a specific action or nutrient. Enzymes can either launch a reaction or speed it up. The chemicals that are transformed with the help of enzymes are called substrates. In the absence of enzymes, these chemicals are called reactants. [1]

Are Enzymes Healthy?

Enzymes are needed to break down food that you digest which are digestible enzymes. These of course are healthy and needed in humans and all animals. There is some talk whether or not artificial enzymes are good or bad for human consumption.
