Time it right

from Dr. Devin Houston, Ph.D.


Dr. Devin Houston Give enzymes with the first few bites of the meal or just prior to mealtime. But more important is to take the enzyme, if not at the beginning, then during or after eating. Food stays in the stomach for up to 3 hours, therefore, introducing enzymes anytime during the meal will still provide benefits.
If one is a "grazer", that is, eats constantly during the day, you may wish to give the enzymes at fixed dosing intervals, such as every 4 or 5 hours during the day.
Giving enzymes with snacks is a judgment call. Obviously, if the snack is wheat or dairy, then giving AFP-Peptizyde would be helpful. Other types of snack may not require the additional enzyme dosing. 
Q and A with Dr. H

Your questions answered by Dr. Houston

Q:  How should I train my body to produce the enzymes itself?
A: Your pancreas produces enzymes continuously and stores them in the pancreatic duct.  When food is emptied by the stomach, the duct shoots the enzymes into the small intestine.  
You can't really "train" your body to make enzymes, it is controlled by your metabolism.

Q:   I recently bought some No-Fenol for my 8 year old son, who I discovered in the last year reacts to salicylates (and wheat or gluten). It is a godsend! I had such joy buying fruit and corn chips and spiced breakfast sausage for him! I am now not so concerned about his nutrition, and also it just makes all kinds of things easier. I'm now wondering if there is some way that No-Fenol would prevent a reaction to lotions, soaps, etc. containing salicylates. I assume not, since No-Fenol does its work in the digestive tract. But I thought I'd ask. 

A:  Your question about No-Fenol is a good one, and your own answer is most likely correct.  However, I have been surprised at how the enzymes work so I never say never.  It may be something you want to experiment with on your own.  But, it is great that your son can at least have more variety in his diet.
