Be sure you choose the best digestive enzyme supplement, using CL's results and ratings! 
Isn't your health worth it?
How do you choose the digestive enzyme supplement that is best for you? It's not easy -- they contain a variety of enzymes and some labels don't tell how much enzyme activity you can expect.

To find out how digestive enzyme products truly compare, we purchased and tested popular supplements on the market.

We found that one product did not seem to provide one of the enzymes it claimed. Across the products we found huge variations in their abilities to digest fats (25-fold variation — measured in FIPs), carbohydrates (50-fold variation — measured in DUs), and proteins (100-fold — measured in HUTs). Some of the products include bromelain and papain (17-fold variation — measured in PUs).

Among the products that passed all of our tests of quality, several stood out for providing a good all-around blend of enzymes and substantial enzyme activity, and we selected one as our Top Pick.
