How to take enzymes for your Thanksgiving Day meal

Another year zooms by and the holidays are upon us once again. Time to get out the roasters, the good dinner plates, and flip through the recipe book to create that amazing Thanksgiving Day dinner. If you are like my family, you will make way too much of everything and never eat those leftovers you stuff back into the fridge.

We at Houston Enzymes are, of course, all about eating, well, at least as far as how what we eat gets digested.  And while we want your holiday to be wonderful, we also want you to spend your time with family and friends and not knocked out on the couch by the 3500 calories in that Thanksgiving meal!
That's right, the average Turkey Day meal is around 3500 calories and by the end of the day you will probably have consumed  anywhere from 5000 to 6000 calories total.  Now I'm not going to lecture you about eating to excess; we can do that once or twice a year and not feel bad about it.  But consider that you are putting quite a strain on a GI tract that is used to much less intake.

You can help yourself immensely by using enzymes to help break down those foods more quickly and thoroughly.  Remember also that because you are eating larger portions this Thursday you will need larger doses of enzymes to process that amount of food.  You may find that you don't feel as tired and the bloating and gassiness should be much diminished.

This year we have our high-lipase formula Lypazyme available for targeting fats.  Thanksgiving is a perfect opportunity to try this product as the fat content of a Thanksgiving meal averages around 75 to 100 grams!  Lipase helps break those fats apart which in turn helps the stomach to empty quicker (so you can eat more, yay!).

Just remember to be careful, eat wisely, get out and enjoy the Fall weather, and be thankful for seeing another year through.

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Houston Enzymes!
