Q: Enzymes from raw foods?

Q: If [my son] eats an apple a day would that be enough enzymes for a five-year-old? If I added some kiwi between meals would that be enough? A: No, the amount of enzyme present is not enough for digestion. Digestion occurs in a matter of hours; fruit enzymes work over a period of days. Using enzyme supplements provides about a million- to billion-fold increase in enzyme potency. Much easier to use supplements, as they are standardized to set activities. Fruits and veggies' enzyme levels are much lower and would vary greatly.
