|From Devin Houston: Dosing Enzymes
The amount of enzyme taken in a dose is dependent
upon the amount eaten, not by age or body weight.
No harm can come from taking "too much" enzyme.
The more enzyme taken, the faster the food is
It is preferable to give enzymes with the first few
bites of the meal or just prior to mealtime (10 -15
minutes). But the important point is to take the
enzyme, if not at the beginning, then during or after
eating. Food stays in the stomach from 1 to 3 hours,
therefore, introducing enzymes anytime
during the meal will still provide benefits.
Feel free to experiment with dosing to find the level
that best suits your child?s individual needs. No
toxicity or side effects have been found at any level
of enzyme dosing.
We recently added our Dosing
Chart to the website.
This may be helpful in
