Should children take enzymes?
Updated over a week ago

Yes. Children usually eat the same enzyme deficient foods as their parents. It should be pointed out the importance of breastfeeding in comparison to bottle feeding and acquiring enzymes. Children that are breast-fed acquire dozens of enzymes from their mother’s milk.

Bottle-fed babies receive pasteurized milk that has been heated, which destroys the milk enzymes. This causes the baby’s own enzyme factory to begin using up its enzyme potential from day one. Research indicates that this could be harmful to the child. Their study involved 20,061 babies that were divided into three groups (breastfed, partially breastfed, and bottle-fed). They studied the morbidity (sickness) rate for the first nine months of the infant’s life. They found that 37.4% of the breastfed babies had sickness in comparison to 53.8% of the partially breastfed and 63.6% of the bottle-fed.

It is obvious that babies who were entirely breastfed had far less sickness than babies who were only partially breastfed or who were bottle-fed. Research is trying to tell us that children must eat raw foods that contain enzymes and/or take supplemental enzymes.
