Great broad spectrum digestive aid for protein, carbs, fats, and fiber. Can be taken as an unopened capsule or sprinkled on food. Just don't put it on hot food or it will deactivate the enzymes. You can tell if they are working by adding to milk (or milk substitute) and note the change in smell and flavor as the enzymes go to work. Just a note some may find the change objectionable. :-)
I have IBS and lactose intolerance and I’m vegan. I used to take the NOW super enzymes because I bought them before I was vegan and took them when I felt a stomach ache or I was bloated due to the IBS, decided to change to these because of the enzymes that help digest fiber and the lactase, couldn’t be happier, they really help me when I eat lactose by accident!
Source Naturals is a brand I trust with high quality. Daily Essential Enzymes help my body break down those foods that are naturally hard to digest like vegetables, legumes and some dairy. I feel like my body is receiving all the nutrients from foods I eat when I complement them with these enzymes.
I was suffering from chronic constipation, bloating and looked into the cause of it. As we age, we make less protein digestive enzymes which could cause constipation and bloating. Also, I was taking too much protein when the daily requirement is only 50 g a day. I feel better as I started taking the enzymes.
These essential enzymes have been fantastic for my digestion. I started taking them (smaller bottle) last year. I'm a big eater. But sometimes the food would sit in my belly for hours. And the aches were terrible. I got maximum relief with 5 caps during the meal. I eventually reduced to 4 caps. The enzymes also help when I have lots of raw lettuce. Simply, this is my go-to brand for digestion relief. My rating: Great!
These are my favorite digestive enzymes! I believe they make a difference. It is nice that the ingredient label states what each specific enzyme is for. I LOVE that I can get them in a VEGETARIAN capsule. I don't know why supplement manufacturers even use gelatin capsules since there are soooo many vegetarians now! I try to avoid gelatin capsules even if they are cheaper. I appreciate getting these in the large 240 capsule bottle also - much more economical, convenient for ordering frequency, and better for the environment also!
The Daily Essential Enzymes seem to assist me. It has a wide range of ingredients that are designed to assist with my digestive issues. I appreciate the larger number of capsules available in this size at a fairer price than offered elsewhere at a higher comparative price per capsule. I am better able to find relief for my stomach and gut issues.
I've experienced gastrointestinal discomfort for a couple reasons. One is that I'm now firmly into middle age, the other is the fact that I eat many, many fruits and vegetables. Essential Enzymes has solved the uncomfortable bloated feeling. Two tablet twice/day is now a part of my daily routine.
I take one capsule for every meal, these were recommended to me among other things to help my gut and I trust theyre doing their job, have all the ingredients needed for better digestion. My gut needs all the help it can get as despite a healthy diet Im not absorbing vitamins and minerals as I should, suffered with a bloated stomach after meals for too long. Effect is subtle and it will take time for results but these do seem to help and no bad side effects at all.
