Enzymes and Your Health, What Size Dosage
Publish Date : 1/10/2006 6:11:14 AM Source : Loring A. Windblad
Reactions in children can vary, especially based upon the kind of diet your child is on. Barring something horrible such as having celiac disease, just about any vegetable-based enzymes supplement, such as Bio88+ (Plus), is great.
But children are not adults. What size doses should I be giving my child?
Enzyme dosing is by the amount and type of food eaten and not based on age or weight. A good plan is to start with part of one capsule of one product per significant meal or snack. Then increase to one capsule, then start in a similar way with other enzyme products. In the neuro_typical population, there is no established upper limit on enzyme dosing, and no toxicity associated with oral enzymes. How many capsules or tablets would depend on the specific formulation and the individuals need. For those individuals who tend to graze, interval dosing may be more appropriate. Most people need to experiment (within reason!) with dosing to find the level that best suits you or your childs individual needs.
When is the best time for giving the enzymes?
This varies with the type of supplement used. The best time for some is with the first few bites of the meal or just before mealtime. With others, such as Bio88+ (Plus), it is with or just after the meal and for breakfast and supper twice a day. If you forget, go ahead and take the enzymes during the meal and even at the end of the meal. The important point is to take the enzyme, which works on contact. Food stays in the stomach for up to 90 minutes, therefore, introducing enzymes anytime during the meal will still provide benefits. Some people see much better results if they wait 20 to 30 minutes after swallowing enzymes contained in vegetable based capsules before they eat. Apparently the vegetable capsules take longer to dissolve in the stomach environment. Waiting before eating allows time for the capsule to dissolve and sufficiently release the enzymes into the stomach.
What makes Bio88+ (Plus) better than the other enzyme supplements available on the market? First, Bio 88+ is in a much better form for aiding digestion that many of the other greens products on the market.
The producers of Bio88+ (Plus) use only the very finest certified organic, 100% vegetarian-based components in the making of their highly nutritious food product. There are no animal based products associated with Bio 88+ (Plus). Feel free to contact the author by email for additional information.
