“Fungal” candida produces lipase to digest fats and to degrade fatty tissue. This enzyme along with its protease enzyme can cause irritation and inflammation to our tissues. They use these enzymes for their virulence and their decomposing of matter and tissue. If you take lipase with a meal it should help digest the fats instead of helping candida. You’ll have to play around with the dosage to see what amount you need to take with how much fat you eat at each meal. Taking some of those enzymes in excess can cause some irritation if you already have a gut that is inflamed. Depends on the individual.

Sf722 is a already broken down fat that does not require much of anything to be digested. Each capsule is only 50mg of undecenoic acid.

Lipase will be more beneficial for harder to digest fats…Long-chain fats/viscous fats etc….if it helps at all.

Bitters can help increase bile production which helps to breakdown fats. Some supplement with bile salts to help break down fats. Bile salts also have to be used with caution because excess bile salts can cause some irritation in the gut.
