Helps break down foods easier & better
Posted by Reviewer2945312 on Oct 20, 2007
I have had to have digestive enzymes for the last 20 years with every meal due to a stomach injury. So, believe me when I say I have tried many brands over the years. And, I have worked in several health food stores, so, I know I have tried them all. But, this one is the prize winner in my book. The quality and price are the best of the best. Ican't tell enough people about this product. Thanks, iHerb Team, Leia V from Oregon

i think the title says it all. these are FAR better than animal based enzymes as they work in the stomach where they really need to be & not only in the lower intestine. i take 1 or 2 with every meal including protein shakes.

I agree with other reviews--this product really works superbly! Just take one whenever you eat and no bloating, gas, discomfort etc! I am absolutely astonished! It really really works! Customer in Washington
Good but can be better as well!

This is definitely one of the better digestive enzymes. Enzymes are needed in every metabolic function in our body. Even the minerals and vitamins required enzymes to work. When we unprocessed, 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 processed 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 processed 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 stress 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 less you use, the healthier, longer your life. Studies have shown that almost everyone over 50 has enlarged pancreas due to overstressed! For those who don’t know about enzymes products, it is considered a low strength digestive blend.. It also contains no specialised enzymes (other than just protease, lipase, amylase) to digest the less common allergy food. The caps are vegetarian, very small and easy to swallow. The best way to take this is to take it 5 min before eating to allow the capsules to dissolve first or uncap and take it just before eating. Generally, I find the dosage is more suitable for a light meal or quick snack. For heavier meal, you probably want to be taking a medium-high strength digestive blend or multiple capsules. As for the price, it’s very cheap for 240 caps. The product does contain magnesium stearate and other binders/flow agents. Whether there is any health effects from magnesium stearate like claimed, it is highly debateable. You can try Now Foods Digest Platinium or Doctor’s Best brand if you want quality enzymes products with specialised enzymes for food that are meant to cause allergy for some people.

The best ever!

I have never before been so content with a product which is vegetarian and helps digest all the difficult food.

They are working better for me and my nursing baby than the Digestive Enzymes. The DE's with HCI were bothering my newborn and making him completely fussy and irriatable. But the Plant Enzymes don't and still work on my digestion. ~Cinnamon

We have found that this product is a great help for digestion. We don't necessarily take it ever meal, but if we forget and then get indigestion, we go back and take some. Each time it has helped clear up the problem. When we remember to take it WITH the meal, we have great results.
Very good price

Very good price.The only drawback to it was that it contained magnesium stearate(vegetable source), MCT (medium chain triglycerides) and silica.
