The balance of ingredients in your food makes or breaks your body’s own benefit from the food you’re eating. Let’s look at the role of the enzyme through this example:

If you put a bean in a plastic bag together with some water, it’s pretty much how it would look like (unchewed) in your stomach. How long do you think it will take until the bean is broken down so that your body can benefit from its nutrients? If you add the acids your stomach naturally holds to the plastic bag, it will still take forever because the physical form of the bean is the only thing changing: it’s dissolving, but the parts are only floating around in the acidic water. The lack of enzymes is to blame for this lack of unbeneficial reaction. But when we add enzymes, the process speeds up millions of times when compared to the un-catalyzed reactions. The enzymes will attach themselves to the bean, and break it down to its nutritional components so your body can absorb them. What most people aren’t aware of is the ongoing internal competition to react with the enzyme meaning that the balance of ingredients in your food plays a leading role in what your body will actually benefit from.

People talk about antioxidants like everyone knows what they are. Here is an explanation to remember:

An antioxidant is a molecule that inhibits the oxidation of other molecules. Oxidation is what happens when an apple quickly turns brown after you have taken a bite from it. Antioxidants inhibit this process by being oxidized themselves, and when they are diminished the apple will turn brown. +Health

The only food solution that provides Optimal Nutrition and Total Calorie Control.
Introduction
ON Food was made exactly with you in mind. Whether you’re trying to lose weight, build muscle, make the team or simply want to live your best, ON Food has you covered. Our meals allow you the ability to monitor your caloric intake, while not compromising on taste in a convenient way. Staying healthy and on track has never been so easy.

ON Food meals can be stored at room temperature for up to 18 months. Long shelf life is made possible by using the latest "retort" bowl technology that locks in freshness and provides better taste and added convenience. ON Food contains no preservatives.

All meals can be eaten hot or cold. For easy heating instructions, use a microwave - take the plastic cap off the bowl, remove the metal lid, place the plastic cap back on and heat for 60-90 seconds.
