Q. Can I take systemic enzymes as a digestive enzyme?
A. Yes and No! While systemic enzymes have many of the similar types of enzymes used in digestion, systemic enzymes contain specific types of enzymes designed for the rest of the body. Often times systemic enzymes are encapsulated in time released capsules, which prevent them from releasing in the stomach and being utilized for digestion.
However, If taken with food, systemic enzymes will tend to breakdown early and some digestive enzyme benefits will be realized. The drawback is that systemic enzymes are more costly, so why not get the full benefit out of systemic enzymes while taking an digestive enzyme designed for digestion.
