We have come to know that what you consume, including the supplements you may take, can significantly impact your gut health– fortunately, supplements can even help alleviate symptoms of certain GI conditions, including IBS! As you will see, here is the secret ingredient to how this is possible: digestive enzymes!
What is IBS?
IBS is a gastrointestinal (GI) condition known as irritable bowel syndrome. Generally, some people with IBS experience chronic constipation, some experience chronic diarrhea, or a mix of the two. Symptoms of IBS include uncomfortable symptoms in your gut, such as bloating, gas, and cramping, as well as irregular bowel movements.
Episodes of IBS can be triggered primarily by stress or changes in your lifestyle/environment, such as going on vacation. Eating triggering foods like spicy foods or dairy products can unfortunately make matters worse.
Conventional medicine uses IBS as an umbrella term for lots of gut issues. However, IBS actually manifests from underlying gut imbalances and dysfunctions!
On the bright side, there are some things that you can do to help relieve IBS symptoms!

What are Digestive Enzymes?
Enzymes are compounds that help speed up chemical reactions in your body, including the digestion and absorption of nutrients from food. Specifically, digestive enzymes help your body convert nutrients into absorbable compounds to use for energy! As a result, digestive enzymes are ESSENTIAL when it comes to getting the nutrients you need!
Digestive enzymes come both from foods and in supplement form. Some foods, such as honey and avocados, naturally contain digestive enzymes! They also come in supplement form for those who need a little extra boost!
Digestive enzymes can help with a variety of different symptoms, like:
- Stomach pain
- And much more!
Now, you might be asking yourself– what is the best digestive enzyme for IBS? It depends on your symptoms and your gut! A gut test can tell us how well your gut is absorbing certain nutrients. However, just simply listening to your body can give you HUGE insights!
