Product Information Menu
The aging process and certain health issues cause a reduction in the body’s production of digestive enzymes. One effect of this reduction is a bloated feeling soon after eating a large meal. Digestive enzymes are essential to the body’s absorption and full use of food.1-2 The primary digestive enzymes are protease (to digest protein), amylase (to digest carbohydrate), and lipase (to digest fat). These enzymes function as biological catalysts to speed the reactions that break down food. Raw foods also provide enzymes that naturally break down food for proper absorption. The capacity of the living organism to make enzymes diminishes with age.
Supplementing with enzymes can help promote optimal digestion and better absorption of nutrients.27-30 Enhanced Super Digestive Enzymes provides a potent array of the amylase, protease and lipase enzymes that are designed to adapt to a variety of stomach acid pH conditions and provide powerful digestion of protein, fat, carbohydrates, milk lactose and vegetable cellulose.1

Older people, like my husband and myself, have a deficit of digestive abilities. In order to get maximum nutrition from our best food choices, we absolutely need the help that Enhanced Super Digestive Enzymes gives. They are helping keep my immune system strong. We've taken it for years, and will continue to do so. The cost is minimal, and the effects maximal!

As I am in good health I find that I do not notice any specific benefits from any of the many supplements that I take each day. This does not mean that the supplements are not working and the test would be to stop taking everything and see how I feel. My guess is that long term all the supplements are beneficial.

I take it if I am eating a high fat meal.

By Sunny Girl
I have found this product along with the use of your other product Carnosoothe to be be very effective! I can now enjoy eating raw and cooked vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, and carrots with out discomfort. I also like the fact that I can take it right before a meal or after with good results.I have had problems with my stomach for a number of years and have had to take over the counter medications on a regular bases. I believe that the side effects of the medications have reduced my ability to digest my food, also I realize that being over 65 may also be a contributing factor. The bottom line is that I feel so much better, and can now enjoy vegetables I had to avoid. I have also been able to avoid taking the Zantac as often as I did in the past.

This product has allowed me to eat things that I couldn't before taking it; like spaghetti sauce! I have even introduced others to Super Digestive Enzymes, and like me, they are repeat buyers.
