Subject: Can they be taken together?
A. Digestive enzymes, such as protease, amylase, and lipase, act upon food, breaking it down into simpler components that can be used by the body for energy, without enzymes, digestion could not taken place. Therefore, the food that we eat could not be absorbed and utilized by our bodies.
Probiotics help the enzymes to digest food and process waste. In essence, probiotic bacteria and enzymes work together to ensure that the digestive tract is running smoothly. When taken together, enzymes assure greater levels of digestion and absorption of your food, and probiotic bacteria aid enzymes in digestion and keep problems in check.
