Enzyme activation is done by several minerals. Different minerals are used to activate different enzymes depending when and where.
“…thrombin (a sodium‐activated enzyme), pyruvate kinase, dialkylglycine decarboxylase, diol dehydrase, inosine monophosphate dehydrogenase, and tryptophanase (all potassium‐activated enzymes), and alkaline phosphatase (a magnesium‐activated enzyme)”1
I personally have a feeling different minerals can be used when we are very low on others. If so, this would cause enzymes to run at different speeds and frequencies.
