Guide to Enzymes

Enzymes are your body’s engineering, building, maintenance, and demolition crews, all in one. These biological molecules are almost exclusively proteins, although some are actually more specialized RNA molecules that fill specific roles. There are three basic categories of enzymes – metabolic, digestive, and food-based.
