Will My Body Become Dependent On Digestive Enzymes?

Especially if taken over a course of over 3 years.. (for example)


I have been taking digestive enzymes for the past 6 months and its great!  However, how do I come off it?  How can I have my own body produce digestive enzymes more effectively on its own?

    Yes, it can become used to your intake of digestive enzymes and make less. You need to get your body to start producing its own again by supplementing swedish bitters and lactobacillus probiotics. From my book:


    Swedish Bitters (Gentian)

    Uses: Help Stimulate Digestion, Gallbladder Issues, and Increases Digestive Enzyme Production.

    Brand: Nature Works Swedish Bitters

    Side effects: RARE: Hypersensitive Allergic Reaction

    Swedish bitters are different mixture of different herbs depending on the brand. Your average Swedish bitter tonic can be used to help stimulate digestion and also even help the body make natural digestive enzymes.

    Gentian is a bitter herb from a plant native to China and is used in most digestive bitter formulas. Gentian has been shown to help ease gallbladder issues and indigestion. It helps increase appetite, stimulates the production of digestive juices, increases pancreatic activity, and boosts blood supply to the digestive organs. It also is known to stimulate the flow of bile as well.
