Enzymes are magic molecules that catalyze biochemical reactions in every cell of the body. Our body produces enzymes to break down the food we eat, so that it can be absorbed and converted into energy. These processes all involve enzymes. Enzymes are heat sensitive and are destroyed at temperatures over 40 degrees celsius.
When we eat cooked food our body uses (loses) energy in order to digest food. When we eat raw food, our body retains and gains energy because raw foods naturally contain the enzymes needed for digestion. So instead of using all its energy into digesting food, the body can carry on creating energy for you to function optimally all day long!
