Enzymes are critical in your body help to perform very important tasks. These include building muscle, destroying toxins, and breaking down food particles during digestion. Unfortunately our food supply is greatly depleted of the enzymes we need, this it is important to supplement. With the many Enzyme options Young Living offers, it may get a bit confusing of which to take.

Open capsules: all capsules can be open and sprinkled on any food or mixed in any liquid.
Combinations: If more than one is recommended, you may take any combination or just one and see how your body responds, any combination of enzymes is acceptable.
Example: If you eat chicken with your evening meal, salad, vegetable, bread, juice, apple pie, you will need more enzymes to digest during the night:
2 Essentialzyme-4, 2 Essentialzyme, 1 Allerzyme, and 6 Detoxzyme (if you feel that’s too much reduce to what you feel comfortable with). For kids: 3 Mightyzyme, 1 Detoxzyme
(adults take 2-4, children take 1-2 or MightyZyme 1-3)
Essentialzyme is an overall enzyme that supports the pancreas which produces glucose the body needs throughout the day for energy.

I love finding articles that were written based on Gary's lectures. Here's some interesting information from Gary on enzymes and gut health:
"How many of you know that if you don’t eat after 3 o’clock, you sleep better? That’s because your stomach is not in turmoil. It is believed that if you can get into the 4th stage of sleep, you need to sleep for only 2½ hours to totally rejuvenate your body. You cannot get in the 4th stage of sleep with enzyme deficiency. It’s impossible. Build up those enzymes!
And here are many more surprising benefits of taking quality enzymes. Watch to learn from Dr. Vonn Harting:

Have you been hearing a lot about the essential oil trend? Even though they are becoming very popular recently, essential oils are not new by any stretch of the imagination.
Someone once told me, "we all die one day what's the point of all this natural stuff". Well for me it's not about living forever but it is about living well. I want to spend my time on this earth feeling strong, happy, and energized. The truth is everyday toxins rob us of our vitality.
A toxin is a chemical or poison that is known to have harmful effects on the body.
