WHAT IS RAW FOOD?

Raw foods are free from animal products and haven’t been heated over the temperature at which most enzymes are lost (approximately 40 - 46°C). Raw foods are consumed the way nature intended, without diminishing essential nutrients such as the vitamins, minerals and other proteins that degrade or become destroyed when heated at higher temperatures.

 

WHY EAT RAW FOODS?

Increasing the amount of organic, raw food into your lifestyle results in an abundance of health benefits including increased energy, clearer skin, enhanced concentration, productive sleep, better digestion, weight loss and reduced risk of heart disease. Personally, I (Maz Valcorza) noticed that incorporating a high amount of raw foods into my diet resulted in many positive changes, ranging from increased energy levels, to more muscle tone, to improved mood. In this case, the proof really is in the (chia) pudding.

 

what are ENZYMES?

Enzymes are comprised of various proteins (which can be thought of as the building blocks of everything in our bodies) and are an essential part of all bodily functions, including all five senses and of course, digestion. Our own body produces some enzymes, however we also get enzymes from the food we eat. This is why eating raw foods is so beneficial. If you eat food with the enzymes still intact your body doesn’t have to use its natural reserves to digest food, which means the body’s own enzymes are freed up to fulfill all the functions they were meant for – repairing and regenerating. Nature has thankfully accounted for our need of digestive enzymes by placing them within each unique food, so if you’re eating broccoli, there are exactly the type of enzymes within its chemistry that allows you to digest it. In the same process, you are absorbing the maximum amount of vital nutrients.
