Amazon Discussion: Supplemental Enzymes

section of Amazon's PepZin GI)

Trust and Rely asked:
Hi Kevin. Did you take any digestive enzymes and if so can you tell me which 
one? My naturopath is suggesting one with protease since I eat protein and fat 
(along with carbs) but I'm not sure if protease and gastritis are ok together?

Kevin says:
Hello Trust and Rely

I would caution against doing that. When you have gastritis, your stomach lining 
is irritated. Protease is an enzyme that is similar to your natural stomach acid 
- it will help digest food. Most people that take digestive enzymes while on 
gastritis end up making it much worse. It's like scratching an open cut.

Why would he/she recommend a digestive enzyme ? If you only have gastritis, the 
goal is to eat gentle food until you heal. Your digestion MAY be impacted during 
this time, but that is because your body is slowing down the production of your 
regular enzymes so you don't hurt yourself further. I would strongly advise 
against circumventing your stomach's natural safety check by adding a 
supplemental enzyme.

In my research online, roughly 60% of of the reviews and testimonials I read 
online had a worsening of gastritis after taking an enzyme. But, you can see for 
yourself if you like. Go ahead and search for protease products on Amazon, and 
try to find the associated reviews relevant to gastritis. You'll see some
end up with worse pain. I'd be careful with any enzymes while on gastritis...
