Enzymes are needed in the body because they help in most of the activities in the body,i.e they speed up the rate of reactions in the body,just like in a chemical reaction were a catalyst is needed for the reaction to proceed very fast,so our body catalyst is the enzymes

Enzymes are required for the proper and normal functioning of every organ system. They direct, accelerate, modify or retard all body functions. They do so in a unique, economical manner. This step-by-step function insures safety, efficiency, and in terms of energy expenditure, economy.

The immune system depends heavily on enzymes to conduct its protective functions. For example, in the complement system, one of the most important 'defense/attack' branches of the immune system that will be discussed latter in the book, there are nine step-by-step primary components involving 27 known subproteins, 22 of which are enzymes!

It is obvious that medical science should have as much knowledge as possible regarding a body system so important to our health, to our lives and to our body's ability to protect us from illnesses. By measuring enzymes present in our body and other tissues, physicians learn how the body the body functioning, alert us about illness and monitor response to the various treatments.

A healthy enzymes system is also important in disease prevention. Physicians are continuously learning to better evaluate how our bodies are functioning, which enzymes are involve in the various function and which abnormal enzyme mechanisms in our bodies result in diseases.

They are enzymes we already know a great deal about. They can help us to re-established and protect out health.All 3000 or more different enzymes are constantly being produced on the mass by our body. That is the fantastic performance but there is small drawback, some of these enzymes lack of small portion to perfect the shape making up the active side so that the substrate would simply escape again from the hole making up the reaction site.

A complementary piece, known as a coenzyme, is required to complete the fit of the active site. In order to produce the coenzyme needed to complete the template of active site, we have to consume the material essential for its construction, since our bodies, unfortunately, are incapable of making the coenzymes from the available components.

We have to ingest the material for the constructing the coenzymes in our food. Even when the quantities involved are sometimes tiny certain enzymes cannot be manufactured in the absence of a coenzyme. Further more furthermore, without these particular enzymes (functionally complete with their coenzymes), the whole enzymatic system falls out of the equilibrium and we become ill. If the materials required are unavailable for a longer period of time, we may even die.

Enzymes ar used to break down carbohydrate ( which are what you have when you eat breads, rices , vegetables and stuff) into maltose sugar and then into glucose sugar. You can try eating a piece of bread without jam, just nothing. Try! It will turn sweet once you keep chewing for a few minutes because it turned into sugar and sugar are used for energy in our body.
I hope this helps. And I'm only 12.

Coenzymes are small natural non-protein molecules so as to carry chemical groups flanked by enzymes. The term coenzymes are normally used loosely, and coenzymes be able to also be distinct as natural, non-protein cofactors. Coenzymes are too sometimes referred to as co substrates, but this custom is curious.

Coenzymes are obsessive in the reactions in which they are substrates, for example: the coenzyme NADH is transformed to NAD+ by means of oxidoreductases. Coenzymes are nevertheless regenerated in addition to their attentiveness maintained at a steady position in the cell. A special subset of coenzymes is prosthetic groups. These have more in frequent with cofactors since they are tightly bound to enzymes and are not released as part of the reaction. Prosthetic groups include molybdopterin, lipoamide and biotin.

Metabolism involves a vast collection of chemical reactions, but nearly everyone fall under a few basic types of grouping transfer reactions. This common chemistry allows cells to use a little set of metabolic intermediates to carry chemical groups between dissimilar reactions. These group transport intermediates be called coenzymes. Each class of group-transfer response is carried out by a meticulous coenzyme, which is the substrate for a put of enzymes that make it, and a set of enzymes that eat it.
