Enzymes are not food. But without them, our food would not be assimilated. They are tiny protein compounds that change the structure of what we eat, breaking it down into nutrients, which can finally be absorbed. The human body produces up to 1.300 different enzymes, which catalyse more than 5.000 chemical reactions. Without them, you would not be reading this text. They enable us to see, hear, feel, move, write, digest food and think. Enzymes are companion elements. It is through building alliances that they work. Food alone does not do the job, neither do enzymes. It is their entanglement that makes life-supporting reactions possible. After all, you are not what you eat. You are what you absorb.
