How can we help children combat enzyme depletion? When children do not get sufficient enzymes, they become vulnerable to digestive disorders that can result in abnormalities of growth, poor health, ADD/ADHD and emotional problems. The depletion of enzymes in the body can also cause other health related problems for children, as well as adults:
- food allergies
- lactose intolerance
Enzyme depletion occurs when the body does not receive the right nutrients to keep the body functioning properly and when enzymes are not replenished in the body. Enzymes are the ‘work force” of the body and are necessary in order for a child’s body to utilize all the raw materials in its life-supporting activities of metabolism. Digestive enzymes, for example, break down food after it has been passed through the stomach and turns food into energy.
When young bodies do not naturally produce both digestive enzymes and metabolic enzymes, as they are needed, enzyme depletion can occur, and can cause disease and other illnesses. On Dec. 13, 2010, President Obama signed the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, the bill that reauthorizes the Child Nutrition Act.
Nutrition for kids is based on the same principles as nutrition for adults. In today’s fast-paced world, nutrition is often one of the first things to go. An unhealthy diet of processed and fast foods destroys enzymes-protein molecules crucial to digestion, breathing, and virtually every metabolic function necessary for life.
One of the things that goes along with storing toxins in the body is loss of its ability to extract nutrients from the foods you eat and enzymes play a crucial role in the digestive process. Their job is found in the small intestine where they break down food after it has passed through the stomach. To prevent enzyme depletion, it is important for children to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. Eating the right foods can help prevent against diseases, in later life, such as, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, etc.
