How to Get the Enzymes Your Body Needs©by Arlene Wright-Correll

March has been National Nutrition Month and eating healthy is part of that official proclamation. Make every month your own personal nutrition month and make eating healthy part of your life. You can start with an apple a day and as the saying goes keeps a doctor away.
Each of us knows yet seems to forget that the fresher the food, the more enzymatic Enzymes is the key to a healthy life. These enzymes provide your body with energy and longevity. They are also one of the main keys to slow down aging.
With that in mind remember that your local farmers markets will help you to get plenty through fresh, uncooked foods, daily you want. Smart healthy daily meals contain at least two servings of fresh fruit, and one big salad every day for everyone. Cooked foods are great also, but just remember we need the uncooked ones daily to get our daily dose of anti-aging enzymes. You can get yours through green-based juices, smoothies with veggies, salads and fresh fruit.
All of the local farmers markets vendors are required to wash their produce before they sell it to you and you probably re-wash it at home. However, that doesn’t eliminate toxins if the produce you buy or even grow are sprayed with pesticides because the pesticides go into the soil and up through the roots into the produce and no amount of washing will reduce them.
So shop organic and check with your vendor because more and more locally and sustainable chemical free produce is being distributed at reasonable prices through CSAs (community supported agriculture) and farmer’s markets. When you buy from a local Farmers Market food vendor who grows organically you are buying for freshness (more enzymes!) and reduction of carbon footprint, international fuel dependence and for other eco-earth benefits. Just ask the vendor or look for their signs that say Organic!
You may think by exercising and drinking lots of water you are reducing your toxic load but you aren’t unless you are eating toxin free produce and any other foods that have some kind of toxins in their growth chain.
Pesticide and chemical free food and drink should be part of you and your family’s every day life style or we will be growing a generation of children who will not live as long as today’s generation of adults have lived.
