Enzymes outdo Coca-Cola for fighting phytobezoar

What is a phytobezoar and what does soda pop have to do with it, you may ask? A phytobezoar is an indigestible mass of vegetable fiber. Coca-Cola has been used at times to help dissolve such fibers.

Medpage Today reports that in one man's case, a mass in the upper gastrointestinal tract was from ingesting aloe vera as a "natural medicine". Doctors tried to dissolve the phytobezoar with Coca-Cola and finally, cellulase enzymes. 


Food combining theory doesn't add up


Gurus of "food combining" claim that eating certain foods together affects their ability to be digested. US News & World Report debunks the myth of food combining in a recent health blog post. 

Ketogenic diet and fats: Q and A


Q: Dr. Houston, which enzyme would be suitable for the ketogenic diet which is very low in carbohydrates and protein and high in fats?

A: Definitely our Lypazyme. Lypazyme is a combination of 3 lipase enzymes that help break down fats found in foods. It should help in decreasing the greasy stools, diarrhea and nausea that often occur with the ketogenic diet.


I suggest starting with 1 capsule per meal. Increase after a couple of days if you don't see changes in loose stools. There isn't any upper limit on dosing and no side effects or toxicity.

Are there times I shouldn't take an enzyme? 

What are the signs that certain enzymes should be avoided or taken at lower doses?
