This is definitely one of the best digestive enzymes and one of the most competitive in pricings. Enzymes are needed in every metabolic function in our body. Even the minerals and vitamins required enzymes to work. When we unproces sed, uncooked raw food, the enzymes in the food will naturally help to break down the food and leaving little work for our stomach to break it. However, when we eat proces sed or cooked food, all the enzymes are dead and our body will need a lot of enzymes to finish the work. Our pancreas (main enzyme producer) will have to work hard to produce the enzymes and even divert the enzymes needed for other bodily function. Even wonder why we feel so sleepy, sluggish and having energy crash after a heavy proces sed or cooked meal, this is the reason why! You will notice that this is not same when you eat a lot of raw fruits and vegetables instead. When your body has to divert the enzymes for production for food, it actually compromises your physical and mental energy, immune system, stamina and etc! Taking digestive enzymes helps to make your food nutrients bioavailable for absorption, reduce food allergies, reduce stomach discomfort, loose stools, bloating etc and takes stres s off your pancreas. It is believed that we can only produce a limited amount of enzymes in our life and you certainly don’t want to exhaust it in on your food. The les s you use, the healthier, longer your life. Studies have shown that almost everyone over 50 has enlarged pancreas due to overstres sed! For those who don’t know about enzymes products, it is considered a high strength digestive blend. Basically, it contains 3x times a normal digestive blend will contain and it’s the highest pos sible strength available. It also contains specialised enzymes (other than just protease, lipase, amylase) to digest every food pos sible. It comes with 0.5 billion of probiotics which I think isn’t a lot and it’s unneces sary in an enzyme product but no harm though. The caps are vegetarian, not too big and easy to swallow. This product also contains multiple strains of protease and amylase. This is because different enzymes function between pH value range. It is to ensure that you can enjoy food acros s different digestive organs (eg stomach is acidic, small intestine is mild alkaline). The best way to take this is to take it 5 min before eating to allow the capsules to dis solve first or uncap and take it just before eating. Generally, I take 1 for a normal meal, 2 when I overeat and 3 when I am eating a buffet. It would be nice if they actually indicate what Fibrazyme consists of. Otherwise, it is hard to compare it to other products. I also like that it comes in a glas s bottle which means that there is les s leakage of oxygen compared to plastic bottle and glas s bottle are recyclable as well. Check out my page for more reviews!

This is a comprehensive digestive enzyme, which can be taken as capsules or poured into smoothies. I take it before eating any large meal, especially one containing a lot of protein.
Very Good Product

When you compare it's ingredients to some of the other enzymes on the market, this one is a bit stronger, and it's vegan. After using these with a moderate to heavy meal, you can feel the difference.
