Enzymes - do you need them? Tools for Health
April 21, 2007

When was the last time you gave any thought to the seemingly lowly enzyme? Never? Well, you're not alone, however once you understand them; you will want to give them some serious thought on a daily basis.

I bring this up because in the span of about a week and a half I had 3 separate calls, each one, if not the whole subject, at least part of the issue was an uncomfortable feeling in the stomach after eating. The age ranges of these three people are from 3 to about 21.

Could something as simple as enzymes be the answer?

Do you ever have that heavy, leaden "my food is not digesting" feeling? The food just seems to be sitting there? I'm not saying this is definitely the problem with each of the above people, nor is it the only issue, but outside of a more specific consultation there is one easy thing to try and you guessed it it is enzymes!

Here is a personal example:

A couple years ago some friends and I took a "girls time off" and went to the beach. We ate a delicious lunch then headed out to have fun. The trouble is, within a short time, two of us had "that feeling." Not a good start when we were only a few hours into our fun mini-vacation.

Since we had rented a kitchenette we went grocery shopping for our dinner late that afternoon, and I was able to pick up some tasty enzymes in the form of fresh pineapple. My friend and I had some right away and that uncomfortable, heavy feeling disappeared quickly.

Give it a try next time you are out to eat, especially at a buffet, and your digestion needs some help. Keep in mind it does have to be fresh pineapple, though. You need the live enzyme bromelain which is not available in the canned version.

Whole foods are usually the first thing I like to try, as in our use of pineapple. Unfortunately we can't carry things like that around with us without them spoiling. And the older we get, pretty much all of us need extra digestive enzymes in order for our bodies to be able to actually use the good things in those healthy foods we are eating and vitamins and herbs we are taking.

So what to do? One of my favorite things when traveling is Papaya Mints. Truth be known, I carry a few in my purse all the time because we use them for breath fresheners, too. Here are some other enzyme products for people who, like me, want to feel good after they eat.

  • Food Enzymes
    These are my husbands favorites.
  • Proactazyme Plus
    I use this one every day, actually with every meal, to avoid that 'heavy feeling' I used to have. I also like that it comes from plants.
  • Protease Plus
    These come from plants too, and work nicely on proteins.
