Making Enzymes Easier to Digest

What are digestive enzymes and why do we need them?
Enzymes are also known as biological catalysts – increasing the speed of a chemical reaction but without ever being used up in the process. Enzymes have active sites made up of amino acids which are responsible for binding to their specific substrate. Once bound, the substrate is turned into product and the enzyme is free to catalyse other molecules.
