    I'm trying to find a completely plan based, organic digestive enzyme. I used to take this stuff called digestzyme and I think it worked pretty well, but I was curious if there were any organic enzyme supps out there. Gracias

    Most people recommend acidophilus or that probiotic yogurt shit. Both will make you shit like a goose.

    According to some BBC study I watched they found that improving the environment that you anal bacteria lives, in does a much better job than just adding more bacteria. They found that simply eating a banana per day improved teh amount/quality of beneficial bacteria in the digestive track over those fancy yogurts. If you poop isn't sticking together right, eat more fiberous fruit and vegitables, less fake sugars, etc.

    Get a probiotic. It's cheap and effective. Trader Joe's has a good one.

    probiotics are not enzymes


    supplemental digestive enzymes are used when a person has issues with digestion and would require additional enzymes that the body is unable to provide for proper nutrient breakdown.

    I use them with heavy meals (i.e. a meal with 50+ grams of protein, or heavy in fats) to insure that I can utilize all available nutrients.
