I found this an interesting read about enzymes for acne which helps the body to break down foods. It is also said that enzyme treatment can help skin conditions. Read on to find out more.
The human body contains two kinds of enzymes: metabolic, which are found in every cell of the body and cause various chemical reactions, and digestive, which are released in the stomach and intestines and help break food down into usable nutrients. A third kind, known as food enzymes, are found in uncooked nuts, vegetables and fruit. Raw-food advocates argue that, when eaten, food enzymes can help “predigest” nutrients, a process they claim allows the body to use less of its own digestive enzymes and direct more energy to other functions, like organ repair and detoxification.
But the science behind this is dubious. “Most people digest just fine,” said Dr. Donald Kirby, the director of the Center for Human Nutrition at Cleveland Clinic’s Digestive Disease Institute. “If you really need an enzyme supplement, then you have a medical condition and are probably under the care of a physician.”

The question remains whether taking enzyme supplements will have an benefits to your health. Personally, I feel that the best way is through your diet, buy eating more raw foods such as vegetables, or if you cannot eat raw then just steam them a little to make them more palatable.
