What Are Enzymes? 

 

Enzymes are complex chemical compounds made up of proteins which act as catalysts in our body i.e. the enzymes increase the rate of chemical reactions taking place in our body. For example, the digestion of food in our takes place in 4-5 hours due to action of enzymes. In the absence of these enzymes it is estimated that the digestion of food will take place in approximately 50 years.
