Get your daily dose of
best digestive enzymes

(Healingtalks) Some people will argue that you need to get your best digestive enzymes in pill form. But many foods provide them for us naturally.
Use of fire or cooking our foods
Cooking foods or the use of fire for our foods can soften the outer hardness to make them more digestible. We do this with root vegetables and with hard-skinned vegetables like artichokes. They are most often cooked before eating. But excess heat will also devitalize the same foods. If health is the primary concern as opposed to taste, and raw foods can easily be spices, then heating our foods should be limited – such as warming foods to between 110-120 degrees whenever possible and which will harm or kill the enzymes.
Alternative way of heating foods
An alternative way of heating is to use a dehydrator that is preset to a lower temperature. Even tubers, like potatoes, can be prepared for the dehydrator by grating, blending, and other means that do not involve cooking at high temperatures.
What’s the living food diet all about?
The living food diet is all about maximizing the same enzyme intakes or living forces.These natural elements assist the body in catalyzing what is necessary for many body functions, including the digestion and absorption of nutrients. As we get older, our bodies produce less and less enzymes so we need to take them in from outside sources to maintain our body’s vitality.
