The combination of these enzymes works to help you digest food better, thereby allowing maximum nutrimental benefit of each nutrient. Each enzyme breaks down different foods. For instance, lipase, which is a pancreatic enzyme, and the enzymes phytase, invertase, and hemicellulase, break down carbohydrates. The enzyme papain digests proteins, and helps with the absorption of nutrients. Cellulase breaks down the plant fiber cellulose, whereas beta-glucanase helps with the breakdown of glucose bonds found in whole grains such as oats and wheat. In addition, bacillus substilis helps to keep the gut healthy, and supports a good immune system, as well as ensuring effective digestion.
The manufacturer suggests that 1 (one) capsule be taken with each meal, daily. As each bottle contains 90 capsules, this supply only refers to a three-meal maximum daily intake of food.
A 90-capsule bottle (one month’s supply) is available to buy online at third party sites, not directly from the manufacturer. For instance, on Amazon, this product is sold at $23.66 which includes shipping. A subscription offer is also available on which you can save 5%, or 15% if you subscribe to a minimum of five products. However, you will be locked in, and the fees will be automatically be deducted from your credit card when the shipment has been sent. No other discounts or package deals are offered.
Despite our research efforts, we were unable to locate a manufacturer’s guarantee. Therefore, the return policy depends on the third-party sites on which the item has been bought. For example, with Amazon, the standard return policy is that the items be returned within 30 days of purchase, unused, to receive a refund. The lack of a guarantee does raise some concerns about the effectiveness of this product.
Digestive Enzymes Review – The Bottom Line
This product, which is filled with enzymes that help to digest and keep the gut healthy, has a considerable number of reviews. According to our research, 90% of the reviews on Amazon alone are of high quality. More so, this formula contains bacillus subtilis which is extremely important for gut health and for support of the immune system. However, it should also be mentioned that this product lacks a guarantee, meaning that if it doesn’t work for you, you will not have your money returned. Furthermore, as it is a product that should be used daily, over the long term it can become extremely pricey. There are no discounts available unless you wish to be locked into a subscription service.
