It is estimated that 70 million people in the U.S. have digestive issues. Taking supplements could be beneficial to your gut health. Learn the difference between digestive enzymes and probiotics, and their impact on your gut health.
Digestive enzymes are microscopic protein molecules that have unique shapes and are found all over the body. Each enzyme has an "active site" that attracts and connects certain molecules. The main role of digestive enzymes is to break down different types of food into their "building block" so they can easily be absorbed through the gut wall and into the bloodstream.
Probiotics are live microorganisms made up of good live bacteria and/or yeast that naturally lives in your body. The good bacteria help to eliminate extra bad bacteria, and returns the balance. Good bacteria in probiotics helps support the cells that line your gut to prevent bad bacteria that may have been consumed.
When your body does not have the enzymes it needs, it can lead to food sensitives such as:
Acid reflux and indigestion
Bloating and gas
Digestive enzymes are produced naturally, predominantly by the pancreas, stomach, and small intestine.
Factors that can potentially slow down enzyme production:
"Good" Bacteria in Probiotics:
The following can damage bacterial systems:
Probiotics need to make it to the gut. Therefore it is recommended to take them in the morning when stomach acid levels are low, so that the good bacteria is able to survive.
Probiotics are not produced by the body naturally and do not contribute to the overall breakdown and digestion of food.
Which Supplement is best for you?
Probiotics can aid in keeping your gut clean and free of undigested material, but they do not contribute to the digestion of food. Digestive enzymes assist the body's digestion process.
When the stomach is unable to produce enough enzymes, digestion can take much longer, resulting in discomfort. Digestive Enzymes were designed to improve and reduce those symptoms.
Your gut is the core of your body and it is connected to everything. By repairing your gut, you are treating your indigestion and bloating as well as supporting your immune system, hormones, mood and overall health.
Bad digestion is the root of many serious health concerns. Probiotics just aren't enough anymore.

I have some digestive issues due to food allergies. It's difficult for me to eat out without coming into contact with dairy, no matter how hard I try. As long as I take these routinely everything keeps moving and I find that I'm not bloated for as long, if at all. Not to mention for the price they're really high quality.
Great for my stomach! Exactly what I had hoped for. My bloating and gas after eating is diminished significantly, if not gone. I also don't feel like I need a nap after every small meal anymore! Bonus perk...I've dropped 2 pant sizes.
