View Full Version : Does anyone take enzymes?

I just purchased a bottle of Mega-Zyme at my health food store.
I have heard that it will help you to digest your food better. I seem to have a problem with my raw veggies such as broccoli, cabbage, carrots and other tough vegetables. I became bloated and it binds me up.
Then my stomach swells and around the sides. It doesn't get better until these vegetables move through my system.

YES!!!! I never eat wtihout my enzymes. They help me digest so much better it's amazing. I have a sort of sluggish digestive system, so I really need the enzymes. I think MegaZyme is by Enzymatica, isn't it? Enzymatica is a really good brand.

:) I have such a difficult time with bloating and being only 5 feet you can see if i am gaining around the middle and sides.
Have you noticed that it helps with bloating? I eat around 85% raw and i love it but my stomach swells and i guess it is because my food is not digesting properly. You have been very helpful, thank you again.

Enzymes definitely help with bloating and digestive pains and gas, everything really.

Yes. Been using Garden Of Life Omegazyme for awhile now.

:D I have been struggling ever since going raw. Weight going up and down, food just laying there, gas sometimes so bad it was uncomfortable being around at times.
You all have made my day.
Thank you, i will never be without them again.
How do you take them, before you eat or after and how many?
Thank you again.
Ann :D :D

Because Omegazyme is one of the stronger formulas, I take just one and with my meal. Most say before, during or after a meal within 15 min. There are other types of enzymes that may be taken away from meals.

The number I take depends on how hard a meal I am trying to digest. If it's something easy to digest I just take a couple, but if something is really awful food combining and fatty and sugary, I'll take up to ten.

How's that work when most (i think) raw folks don't eat meals? They graze. At least I know I do.
