    Hi guys, you say you’d love feedback.- This is a topic I have researched exhaustively and yes I have tried taking something to help with digestion, try 14 different brands of enzymes! The best I’ve encountered so far, and what I’m currently taking, are the range by Enzymedica. They specialise in digestive enzymes, that’s all they do! Therefore they have a very comprehensive and highly effective range. eg. test it by breaking open a capsule and stirring the powder into some cooked porridge… it will start to dissolve (ie digest) the rolled oats and turn to liquid. (I’ve tried this with other brands and nothing happens).

    It would be great if you stocked it. I buy it online elsewhere. I am currently looking for a supplier who can do a good price as it is something I have to take with every meal, therefore I buy bottles of it regularly.

    Thanks for your consideration.

    cheers

    Enzymes are proteins and proteins are de-natured by the 1 M stomach acid as a general rule – are the pancreatic enzymes in your blend, not so denatured? This would appear to be likely – so why not encapsulate them so that they are only released in the alkaline environment of the intestine? It would appear to be wasting the consumers’ money otherwise.

      Many thanks Murphy for your comment. Here’s some further discussion from the Senior Naturopath at Sanofi Consumer Healthcare: “Bioavailability (of exogenous, supplemental) Pancreatic Enzymes-The Nature’s Own Digestive Ease with Ginger contains vegetable sourced pancreatic enzymes that possess high stability and activity through a wide range of pH conditions. Although it was once assumed that orally-administered enzymes were destroyed by the body during the process of digestion, recent studies have shown that supplemental, orally-administered pancreatic enzymes especially non-animal ones do not need to be in enteric coated supplements to be efficacious.” We hope this is useful for your research. Best wishes, Toni (HealthPost)

        Thank you for your reply – I’d really appreciate a reference or link to the research you quote if that was possible please? The stability though a wide range of pH could be a two edged sword – being neither denatured in the stomach nor absorbed in the small intestine!
