3 Tips for Timing Enzymes

We have a few timing tips to help you get the most from taking enzymes:

  1. Take enzymes with the first few bites of the meal or just prior to mealtime. If you cannot dose at the beginning of the meal, then take your enzymes during or after eating. Food stays in the stomach for up to 3 hours, so introducing enzymes anytime during the meal will still provide benefits.
  2. If you are a "grazer", that is, you like to eat smaller amounts frequently throughout the day, you may wish to take the enzymes at fixed dosing intervals -- such as every 4 or 5 hours during the day.
  3. Taking enzymes with snacks is a judgment call. If the snack is a type of food that is particularly bothersome for you, then you may want to take a dose of enzymes with it. Though for most people, dosing with only the main meals may be adequate.
