Digestive enzymes
Hi,

I've been reading a lot about taking digestive enzyme supplements. I am just concerned that long-term use could reduce the body's own natural production of enzymes. Can this happen?

thanks

hi

One needs to correct your diet and possibly include pineapple and fenugreek to aid digestion.Also not drink fluids whilst eating . My opinion is also that your digestive enzymes might be weaken over time.
