Life solves the problem of maximizing the entropy increase
rate, while using part of the released energy for
preventing  the increase of its own entropy (e.g. decomposition).

Evolution is optimization towards solving this problem
therefor all parts of life (where enzyme are some of the
most critical once) are optimized accordingly.
