These are my favorite digestive enzymes. I formulated these to be the best of the best. Take a look at the product ingredients and you’ll see that they have an unusually complete, and very broad blend of plant and microbial based digestive enzymes. Many manufacturers skimp on enzyme types and strains to save on costs. I made sure when customizing my Complete Enzymes that they were specifically designed for those of you with digestive issues, food sensitivities, and nutrient absorption challenges. These enzymes break down everything from protein and protein peptides, to carbohydrates, disaccharides, sugars, lipids/fats, and even vegetable fibers.
Have you ever been dining at a friend’s house or a restaurant and been “glutened”? I can’t count on two hands the number of times this has happened to me. As those of you with Celiac Disease and gluten sensitivities or intolerances know, it really is the absolute pits. When formulating my complete enzymes, I made certain to include DPP-IV, a protease enzyme that actually breaks down gluten! I never travel or dine-out without taking a bottle of Complete Enzymes along with me. While I certainly wouldn’t consider it a ‘free pass’ to eat all the gluten you want, it’s paramount when dealing with an accidental exposure or cross contamination.
My Complete Enzymes do more than just ‘digest’. In fact, I formulated my Complete Enzymes to assist with tackling GI tract issues as well. The broad spectrum blend of proteolytic enzymes I selected assist with breaking down inflammatory antigens, such as lectins. They also help support healthy levels of inflammation, as well as have a beneficial effect on undesirable microorganism levels that opportunistically inhabit the digestive tract. If you’re dealing with dysbiosis, parasites, or fungal overgrowth, i.e. Candida, the correct blend and potency of enzymes can go a long way!
Digestive enzyme production weakens as you age. That’s right, your pancreas’ enzyme production gradually slows down as you grow older. This impacts the health of your entire digestive tract, as well as becomes a limiting factor with regard to the nutrients you are able to absorb and utilize. Employing a broad spectrum digestive enzyme can not only help ensure you are properly digesting the food you take in throughout life, but also help ensure you are able absorb and utilize the valuable vitamins, minerals, and micronutrients these foods contain!
My Complete Enzymes are perfect for anyone who:
- Wants the very best digestive enzyme available that is equipped to break down a broad spectrum of foods, and assist with optimal absorption and utilization of micronutrients
- Has or is concerned about food sensitivities
- Is looking for a way to manage accidental gluten exposure and cross contamination
- Wants to support their inflammatory response, immune system, and digestive health
- Is looking for a digestive enzyme with no bovine or porcine based enzymes, glandulars, or gelatin

When is the best time to take digestive enzymes?
I recommend taking digestive enzymes a few minutes or immediately before a meal. This allows the various strains of enzymes a moment to mix with gastric juices and activate so they can best assist with the breakdown of foods. I’m often asked if it’s “too late” to take digestive enzymes in the middle of, or after a meal. The simple answer is, “No.” It certainly not too late. Taking them in the middle of or after a meal will still offer great digestive benefit. In fact, I have many patients who actually take their enzymes between meals to assist with inflammation and GI health.
Is it safe for children, pregnant women, and breastfeeding mothers to take Complete Enzymes?
Yes. Provided you are not allergic to any of the ingredients in my Complete Enzymes, on any prescribed medications that could be contraindicated, or have been advised by your physician not to take digestive enzymes for any reason, then Complete Enzymes are safe to use in doses recommended on the product label. If you have any concerns whatsoever, I always recommend speaking with your physician or other qualified health care provider.
How long should I take Complete Enzymes?
While I am often asked how long a digestive enzyme should be used, this question doesn’t have a ‘one size fits all’ answer. While I commonly recommend that some take my Complete Enzymes before every meal to assist their body’s digestive and absorptive efforts, as well as to support healthy immune function and inflammation levels, those of you with perfect digestive health may not feel that you need it as often, or perhaps only with larger meals. Several of my patients and friends even just carry a bottle with them while traveling or dining-out just in case they accidentally get ‘glutened.’
