Having good digestive health is key to overall health and energy. Although a healthy diet and lifestyle are the the most important factors in maintaining good digestive health, digestive enzymes can help, especially during times when it is not possible to have the best diet or lifestyle.
If a person is experiencing symptoms such as bloating and gas after meal, a feeling of fullness after eating only a little bit of food, finding undigested pieces of food in the stool, or floating stools, it is time to consider using digestive enzymes. There are tests to check to what extent a person is digesting and whether the pancreas is producing the enzymes.
Even if a person experiencing symptoms does not want to get tested, it is safe and fairly inexpensive to try digestive enzymes and see if digestion improves.
