    The MOST underrated supplement


    Digestive Enzymes! EVERYONE should be using these, pick up Super Enzymes by NOW from NP, it doesn't matter how much food you eat it's what you ABSORB, so make sure your absorbing all your protein, carbs and efa's by using a digestive enzyme blend. Now's blend is second to none, it also help betaine in it to help increase stomach acid, which most are low on, this will further help to breakdown your food. Since taking these steady for 2 months now i don't get bloated or gasy, and i just FEEL better after meals, like i'm digesting things better. I first read the importance of these in articles by Charles Poliquin and it totally makes sence that it only matters what you absorb. Seriously guys buy some of these and they are SUPER cheap, like $10 on nutraplanet and thank me later .

    I'm actually pretty blessed in this department. I can knock back 200+ grams of carbs in one sitting and feel fine, and be hungry again in two hours. I also don't take whey or multis though

    Speaking of enzymes being used to utilize your meals better, have you guys seen the ingredients in SyntheSIZE? It's got Betaine HCl AND Aminogen for just that purpose.

    Anabolic Primer 1.5 grams
    Magnesium citrate, calcium lactate, n-acetyl-cysteine, AMINOGEN® a Registered Trademark of Triarco Industries

    Osmo-anabolic Matrix 3.7 grams
    Creatine ethyl-ester, creatine monohydrate, betaine hydrochloride

    Anabolic Amplification 3 grams
    IP6, L-leucine, inositol, zinc gluconate
    If that's not a complete, cell volumizing, meal optimizing creatine formula, then I don't know what is.

    The one I use uses five different plant-based enzymes to optimize digestion of all the foods you eat dairy products, gas-causing vegetables, proteins, starchy carbohydrates, and fats. Looking at nows product its not too specific at what it will help digest.

    Reading the pamplet i got with it and it says this.
    • Includes targeted enzymes to help digest common
    “problem” foods such as dairy and gas-producing
    vegetables, including beans and broccoli*
    • Supports complete digestion of the fat, protein, and
    carbohydrates in all foods, with a concentrated,
    multi-enzyme formula that addresses all food groups*

    Shameless brag:
    I recently checked out my Vitamin Shoppe's nearly expired table. I found a large, white bottle with a $0.50 sticker on top. Examining it I found it to be American Biologics "Inf-Zyme Forte," 500ct. "For fifty cents...sure," I said.
    As I'm checking out the girl says, "Oh wow, you saved $95." Removing the fifty cent sticker showed me the original price of $95.99.

    I don't know what's crazier, my deal, or the fact that someone ever paid that much for 500 digestive enzyme pills. That being said, digestive enzymes are pretty nice.

    Copy the label's ingredients or shoot me a pm, if it doesn't have betaine in it, it's not going to be as effective, and Now's does contain everything you need to digest protein carbs and fats, minus lactase which would help digest milk sugar (lactose)

    I just take miracle greens, it seems to keep the gas down and provides other benefits. If I were to invest in a probiotic only product, I'd have to give my money to gut health.

    that is excessive, if you are going to be so anal please don't bother bringing up your "superior" product.


    Just a name and ingredients is good enough, there are no rules against that.

    I use digestive enzymes quite a bit as well as all my protein comes from whole food, since I don't use shakes at all (lactose intolerant).

    I started using enzymes and probiotics about 6 weeks ago and have stop using Aciphex for acid reflux and bloating, which kicks ass, I hate prescribed meds if there is a natural option. I received Gut Health today and will use this in place of the other two and see how they compare.........

    Lactobacillus Casei doesn't do anything for me, unfortunately. Saccharomyces boulardii on the other hand works wonders.

    I always liked GNC's sport's enzyme formula just because I could ususally find it on the clearence rack, but they've discountined it. I recently found one in a mall store with an expiration date of 9/07 which was just fine with me, but they wouldn't sell it to me after I brought it to their attention. I wish more teenagers knew if they just got a good multivitamin, digestive enzyme, probiotic and ate like a four hundred pound gorilla and trained their balls off how much they could grow without any hormones,n02, or even protein supplements.

    Me too man, I have the digestive system of a horse.

    But I do agree with the topicstarter, it's all about absorption.

    Anybody can binge on carbs, champ. That's how this country got so fat.

    Now try it with real food, F+P only and see how you feel.

    I strongly agree regarding the importance of digestive supps. The most effective I've used has to be Apple Cider Vinegar (liquid and tablets), followed by NOW Super Enzymes.
    1 tbsp. of ACV downed after a meal will make you digest anything, even rotten meat (if you were so inclined). This has been tested in the past.

    When is the appropriate time to take digestive enzymes, before, during or after meals?

    Also, with something like ACV, I always heard to take a drink with it in it prior to meals to aid digestion by increasing stomach acid. Why is it better to take after?
