Living Live Enzymes are the only substances capable of digesting food, Enzymes can only be created from living organic material, when food is cooked above 45 degrees Celsius or 118 degrees Fahrenheit for more than 15 minutes the naturally occurring enzymes are destroyed, As a result the body must produce its own enzymes using up energy and nutrients (eg. minerals) in order to digest and assimilate the food ingested.
When cooked food is consumed the body must use up more energy, when food is cooked it is void of enzymes and depleted in nutrients compared to live raw food, protein for example is depleted by over 50%, eating food cooked above a certain temperature or if it is not possible to digest the food consumed, the body acts as if it were a toxic substance and a pathogenic response is set up within the being, called digestive leukocytosis, where the body’s white blood cells are used to digest food similar to how they would attack a foreign substance.
