    Hi, I have a question Raster, if you have a minute. I started taking enzymes, and was wondering, should I take them for every meal? What about if I eat a snack? Do you take more for a large meal? I did notice as soon as I started taking them, I broke out a bit. It’s not bad, but that is how I react to allergens – as well as a stuffy nose. How quickly do they turn off my own enzyme production? Is there a way to get this going again once it’s turned off?

    Thank you again for all of your help, and all you do for everyone on this site. Happy holidays!!

    I have been taking it indefinitely for a few months now. I take it 3 times a day, 1 per meal (of the pro-gest brand). However, I cannot supply additional info about enzyme production because I don’t know enough about it and haven’t done any research. All I know is that it has many positives and can help digestion.

    I only take 3 per day and don’t eat them with snacks.

    MG, I hate to butt in here since this is addressed to Raster, but if you’re taking an enzyme that will stop your body’s production of its own enzymes, then you’re just taking the wrong type. Swedish bitters (non-alcohol) will not do this; instead, they allow your body to continue to produce its own enzymes in the amounts and types that are specifically needed at a particular meal. Should you decide to purchase these, the dosage on the bottle is not necessary because of how they’re used by the body.

    Since the principle of bitters is to stimulate the bitter receptors on the back of the tongue, you only need to taste the bitterness of the herbs in order for them to perform; therefore 1/2 a dropper full or 1/2 of a teaspoon dropped onto the tongue after a meal, not a snack but a good meal, will be enough to do the job, regardless of what the label may say. If you decide to purchase these, no matter what you read from here on out, you will not need to purchase artificial enzymes as long as you use the bitters. Your body will not become dependent on them as the body does not stop producing its own enzymes. Remember that you’ll need to drink plenty of water during the day while using these bitters, as they will also flush the toxins from your liver.

    Amazon and the Vitamin Shoppe both carry the Swedish bitters online.

    I think mygutleaks was allergic to bitters so he wanted to try something else to heal the gut and maybe for other reasons; however I don’t think the digestive enzymes will do this (heal the gut) but it will do other things such as getting more energy out of your food.

    To heal the gut, the bitters are recommended as well as other things I suggested in another post from last week.

    I haven’t been advocating the digestive enzymes because I am not a medical doctor and don’t know about their consequences (if any).

    thanks guys. Correct, I am allergic to ginger and cinnamon and probably other things in the bitters. Oh, I had thought enzymes would heal the gut. oh man, back to square 1.

    I was wrong on that statement as well: I read up on this website that enzymes do heal the gut. I am pretty tired today (its monday) and don’t have my facts straight.
