Digestive enzymes function by breaking down specific chemical bonds in foods. In most cases digestive enzymes can safely be taken with medications, however it is best to separate the medications and the enzyme supplement by more than 2 hours.
One area of caution is with prescription blood thinning agents. If you are on this type of medication, you should consult with your healthcare practitioner before beginning an enzyme regimen.
All protein digesting enzymes can irritate existing ulcers and should be avoided by those with stomach or intestinal ulcers.
As a general precaution, if you are pregnant or nursing, consult with a professional before use.
Lifestream Advanced Digestive Enzyme capsules have been formulated for adult use. If children have digestive problems or disorders, it is best that they consult privately with a health professional before using digestive enzyme supplements.
Always read the label and use only as directed. If symptoms persist see your healthcare professional.
