Digestive enzymes with each meal ?


Should I take my digestive enzymes with every single meal (including my 2 whey shakes) ? Or only for the 3 main meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) ?

And how long do enzymes work ? If I have breakfast + enzymes at 8am should I take the enzymes with my 10:30 am shake too ?

    Why are you taking these enzymes? Your body should be producing all the digestive enzymes you need. If you have been prescribed this, talk to the doctor who prescribed this to you.

    No prescription needed. I just use them to maximize the amount of protein my body can absorbe. But it’s hard to find info on it and on how many I can take a day

    IMO unless you have a medical condition where you can’t absorb this or that nutrient, you are wasting your time and money with the digestive enzymes.

    Actually, I've found them helpful in specific situations. If I take one before eating peanut butter I'm fine, if I don't there will be horrific cramps.
