Digestive Enzymes

Digestive enzymes may or may not help you with your bloating but it has definitely been a great natural supplement for me when dealing with my bloating issues.  

What Are Digestive Enzymes?

If you are looking for a more medical terminology or lingo, you can definitely do a search for them and find numerous definitions.  But my explanation is simply that they help break down the foods that your body can no longer digest.   

At one point, I could eat absolutely anything and not be affected but now that is a different story.  

I discovered digestive enzymes just by doing my research on trying to find healthier options that could ease my stomach issues and pain.  When I came across them, I thought to myself, "Why not just give them a try?" And I did.  

Why Enzymes?

Well for me, I just wanted something, again, that was natural versus taking a prescribed medication that does not work or gulping down the pink stuff, ugh!  

It's important to me to put good things in my body that is not going to cause me further damage or harm-something that is more part of the natural process.  And using a digestive enzyme is just that.  

Another Reason:  When your food is not being broken down properly, your body is not able to absorb the proper minerals and nutrients when then causing stagnant food not going anywhere which then turns into toxic waste in your body.  Hmmm, not so good. 

When Can Enzymes Be Taken?

I try to take them at least 30 minutes before I eat something that I know could cause me bloating:

  • dairy
  • certain raw fruits and veggies 

I also take them afterwards to aid in breaking down the food so that they can easily be digested.  

Where Can I Get Enzymes For My Stomach?

You can find them at any health food store in the tablet form. I am partial to mine because they come in a powder form which mixes easily with water.  It absorbs quicker and gets to the issue fast versus waiting around for the tablet to dissolve. Love it!

Quick, Easy, Done, Feeling Better! 

How Much Enzymes Should I Take?

Well, it simply depends on the brand you decide to purchase.  Look at the labeling to determine how much you need.

For me, I may take a couple of caps before and then afterwards.  The Isotonix brand also comes in easy packets that I can carry around in my purse.  I can just whip one out and take 1/2 packet or whole depending on how much I think I will need.
